Gift Idea or Treat Yourself: Phoebe Grace, Sustainable Recycled Silk Notebooks

For a little more than a year I changed many things in my life, I became minimalist with respect to my purchases, I got rid of many things that, as Marie Kondo would suggest “didn’t spark joy anymore”, changed habits that were damaging to the environment, I adopted new habits and took up others that I had left behind and readjusted them to my current needs. I got back to use a planner combined with a bullet journal to organise myself better and optimise my time, but right now taking care of mental health became vital and that is how I starting using a journal again.

Perfume Review: J’adore infinissime EDP by Dior

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. Continue reading “Perfume Review: J’adore infinissime EDP by Dior”

Perfume Review: Fleur Nocturne by Isabey

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”
