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”

Review: Bioderma, Atoderm Body Care Routine For Normal, Dry And Atopic Skin

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.

Perfume Review: Love Osmanthus by Atelier Cologne

I have to admit I wasn’t a big fan of colognes, I had that idea in my mind they were more for men, poor generic scent, not long lasting, etc I just didn’t care to have a proper look and give a change, but since I studied perfumery and chemistry I started to appreciate more the quality that certain brands offer and Atelier Cologne is one of the game changers on reinvent colognes.

Perfume Review: Molecule 01 and Escentric 01 by Escentric Molecules

Niche perfumery has increased in popularity in the last couple of years thanks to some niche houses that opened up the way for more people to discover them and enjoy alternatives to the massive consume market. One of those brands was clearly Escentric Molecules with the 01. Molecule 01 and Escentric 01 were very popular back in the day, anyone following British beauty youtubers probably remember the hype back then. Over hyped/promoted products tend to put me off to try them out, but then this year I got closer to the brand with the release of Molecule 05 and Escentric 05 and specialised perfume writers and friends who tried it suggested me to review the 01 and 02 range because “they were amazing” So here we are.

Zelens, Defence SPF 30 & Lip Treatment Oil Review

IMG_20191012_165854

One product I tend to run out quite fast is the Facial SPF and I have to admit I only use Body SPF during the summer, but something that worries me is that many people only cares about using SPF during the sunny months when it’s actually a everyday use product during the whole year, this is not only about the skin getting burnt, getting wrinkles in few years is also to avoid skin cancer, so today I want to share with you 3 products from Zelens, a great dermatological brand with very nice formulas.

Perfume Review: Mademoiselle Rochas Couture by Rochas

Rochas.jpg

This year Rochas decided (perfume wise) to get a stronger presence in the UK, that would include a closer relationship with the influencers and perfume reviewers, so that’s how a lovely bottle of the latest release landed in my hands it was Mademoiselle Rochas Couture. It has been a very long time since the last time I tested a Rochas fragrance and I was really excited when I got it because as we talked many times in this blog and social media, I’m a bit fed up of the over abuse of flankers and the re inventions who end up killing classics of the perfumerie history, and this is something why I love Rochas if they do a flanker it’s only one or two (except the Eau Rochas which are very different between each other) Continue reading “Perfume Review: Mademoiselle Rochas Couture by Rochas”

Perfume Review: Wanted Girl by Azzaro

C197A7B8-28EF-4C6E-9C2A-3A8C142374CA

As I have shared here, I consider myself an extremely olfactory person, I associate immense perfumes with people, moments or memories in a snap of my fingers. I also believe it to be one of my sharpest senses. Having said that, it is extremely important for me to use a memorable fragrance. Normally, I always opt for very hot fragranes; in my opinion, very seductive and feminine. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Wanted Girl by Azzaro”
