Moschino’s eclectic designs never fail to cause excitement, and the Pink Fresh Couture is no exception. The second instalment from the Fresh line, it features a feminine floral blend and is housed inside the iconic cleaning spray bottle. The scent immediately reveals a seductive blend of lively pink grapefruit, lily of the valley and cassis before giving way to a heart of juicy pomegranate and refined wild rose. While in the base, cedar wood, ambrox and musk combine to create an irresistible and sensual trail.
Capturing the delicate scent of a rose garden in full bloom on a summery morning with the dew drops glistening on the petals, Atkinsons Rose in Wonderland is a joyous and radiant eau de parfum. Its perfectly-balanced floral blend of rose, blackcurrant buds and geranium is offset by the faintest trace of woody vetiver, for a fragrance that evokes the innocent beauty of this most English of flowers in a glorious, unfettered celebration of femininity and life’s simple pleasures.
The dazzling light of fruit and spices, a zesty start to a beautiful morning. The addictive treat of a gourmand heart, golden and warm as the rays of the sun. The silky caress of Flowers and Musks, a radiant halo of feminine notes.
A sudden shower cooling the air: the romantic smell of London after a rainsquall when water has washed away frivolity, leaving only a zesty and triumphant breeze with a soft echo of the storm. The strength of bergamot, cardamom and violet is tempered by birch tree and a dusting of patchouli.
Jeremy Scott has taken his creative daring much further. Fresh is a luxury fragrance presented in a package almost identical to a famous multi-purpose household cleaning spray. The designer’s idea is to oppose the luxury and preciousness of an essence of haute couture with the most ordinary and common packaging of products used for domestic cleaning, thus creating the maximum dichotomy between high and low, between exclusive and massive. He is not the first designer to break the mold under cover of this same argument, and although making an effort of abstraction we come to understand it from an artistic perspective and admit that point of impudence, provocation and humour.
Sparkling flowers under the sun. a radiant bouquet of florals that takes the striking sensuality of aromatics and solar oak moss. discover the sparkling energy of mandarin peel and orange warmed with heady white blossoms and ylang ylang. the immediate feeling of being transported in a shiny spot on a radiant day.
A so floral eau de parfum, So Scandal! On the biggest fashion industry nights in the capital, a whiff of scandal is in the air. Outrageous, extreme, intoxicating. At each appearance, her outburst of orange blossom, jasmine and tuberose bowls her audience over with a sensual elegance. Her addictive milky notes envelop and exhilarate the senses. She leaves broken hearts trailing in her wake

It’s always a such a nice pleasure to try out unisex fragrances that are so versatile either for men or women, with father’s day coming in few weeks or just to get a perfume totally out of the average releases I couldn’t be happier to talk about of my last discovery: Tempête D’Automne by the emblematic Jacques Fath house.
On my way to make a list of best spring/summer fragrances options I managed to test Precious Pink Jasmine by Trish McEvoy, I have had few make up items from the brand in the past but never tried any of the perfume range and I was looking for floral options for those who are not fan of “Too floral” perfumes, I was looking for something more delicate, unique in terms of notes and the right balance between floral and sweet, suddenly I remembered this fragrance so I decided to test it and it was a very nice surprise.

Crystal Noir is a fragrance that already has its years in the perfume market and continues to be a highly recommended perfume in the mass market because its price is usually quite affordable for Versace and the fragrance itself conquers easily especially during the cold season.
“The new original woman, La Belle Le Parfum, heightens her seduction with an addictive sensuality” If the original La Belle wasn’t delicious enough JPG released the latest La Belle Le Parfum taking everything to a next level, clearly not a fragrance for everyone and everything you need for others.
New release from the Mon Guerlain family, thinking already in the summer, I was curious to see if they improved the quality or not, as I like the original Mon Guerlain but is not really a favourite of mine, is a very generic perfume and I would much prefer other options from the brand hence why I don’t have it in my collection. I didn’t like any of the flankers in fact I have two bottles of two of them and I’m seriously thinking to sell them as I never reach out for them. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Mon Guerlain Sparkling Bouquet by Guerlain”
When it comes to Marc Jacobs fragrances I honestly never understood the hype about the daisy perfumes, the are so generic and pretty poor performance I guess the bottle design do all the marketing but I hardly ever hear anyone mentioning the Decadence line, the first one came out in 2015 and even still today I keep finding so unique compared to many other options in the market. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Decadence by Marc Jacobs”

Continue reading “Perfume Review: Body Paint by Vilhelm Parfumerie”

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.

Summer is around the corner and definitely we started to feel those sunny and sometimes quite warm days, so what that basically means? warm skin makes any perfume become far more intense, and yes I have always been a powerful intense fragrance lover, florals and fresh clean scents are not my cup of tea mostly because I don’t tend to suit my personality and most important they never last on my skin.
