We have a Molecule 03 which is basically the main molecule in this case, Vetiveryl Acetate, an hybrid molecule, half-natural, half-synthetic. It is a fraction of vetiver oil, distilled from the roots of an Indian grass, which is then ‘crossed’ with acetic acid to remove the bitter and leathery aspects of the root. Then we find Escentric 03 that is a fragrance made with this particular note. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Molecule 03 and Escentric 03 by Escentric Molecules”

J’adore has never really been a perfume I actually liked, it was released in 1999 and yes I was a child back then but I used to see girls on their 20’s using this perfume, that later it actually changed it formulation when Dior took their essential oils production in house and the quality changed and not really in a good way, same the fact that the house only have one perfumer, Francois Demachy which basicallly means the creative process only depends on one person which is not really wise in such a competitive market.

In 1925, Julien Viard designed for the Perfume House Isabey, a little jewel made of crystal called “Bleu de Chine”. Only few pieces of what was considered as collectors’ items, are still available; one of them at the “Museum of Perfume” in Grasse, France. The same year, Ludwig Moser designed another bottle, with a Crystal Master from Karlsbad: a dark amethyst with hand painted patterns in a lozenge shape bottle. When the decision to produce a contemporary version was taken, it was not possible to use the original name as it was, in the meantime, registered by another company. However, the spirit of “Bleu de Chine” was captured by realising an exceptional scent treasured in a bottle that was treated with a unique process known as “Sublimation”. The dark blue colour and the unique decor have been kept on the new edition. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Fleur Nocturne by Isabey”

When Isabey Paris created Prends-moi (take me) with a misspell on its label as ‘Prends-Mois’ in the early 30’s, it was one of the last perfume created for North American market, with a minimalistic design. In the 30s it was a bold move to name a perfume Prends-moi (take me) but Isabey was a daring house.
Prends-moi (take me) is now relaunched among the iconic perfumes of Isabey Paris. But much more than a simple fragrance’s revival, Prends-moi (take me) is an ode to love and passion. This is why the strong and emblematic red colour, a symbol of desire, is used. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Prends-Moi by Isabey”

For so many years I didn’t really pay attention to what I have been using as body cream or shower gel, I have to admit that most of the time I used to choose highly scented products, never read the ingredients list, it was like the only part of my skin that deserved good treatment was my face and totally left my body aside. It was not till I got a bit of eczema due to the harsh products I was using on my skin but also to wash my clothes that I ended up being more selective and lately had an urticaria caused by stress so really had to be careful with my body care routine to don’t make the condition even worst.
