In the perfume market there are thousands of options to choose and sometime we limit our selves to the most famous, the latest releases or certain brands and sure many times we can go test one, two, three and so on and we start to get confused, our nose can’t make any difference anymore and we get lost in the process, so the lovely options out there, should we spray in the paper or the skin. Now we heard plenty of times about subscription boxes full of make up or skincare, but what about perfume?di Continue reading “Scentful: Designer Fragrance Subscription Box”
If we have to talk about perfumes that are very popular but still I don’t like that it would be Coco Mademoiselle, a mega bomb of patchouli than even for my nose is too much and I think this perfume is quite popular because is Chanel and is far more modern than No 5 to use, but still Coco Mademoiselle came out about two years later than J’adore another perfume I can’t stand but is still popular and have those notes that were popular back then so every time I smell them I can’t help to think of a woman on her 40s, 50s. Probably another reason why I use even having a bottle is because..everybody wears it, just like Black Opium or La Vie est Belle is a perfume that would make you easily forgettable because so many girls have made it their signature fragrance.

One brand that I love to discover each time I have a chance to get a bottle in my hands is Probably Atelier Cologne, I have actually being using Orange Sanguine pretty often during the hot summer and I also enjoy it during the autumn season. So when a limited edition bottle came out with a fragrance that I never tried before I was truly excited. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Clementine California x Quentin Monge by Atelier Cologne”
“In 1924, the first edition of Lys Noir was presented in a magnificent bottle and coffret conceived by the renowned designer, Julien Viard and the famous Sorys House.

With father’s day around the corner or any man thinking on a special fragrance for his wedding day today I wanted to share my thoughts about this masculine perfume from the niche French house, Isabey. Sir Gallahad was quite a surprise. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Sir Gallahad by Isabey”
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. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Neon Rose by Floral Street”

First launch in 1924, “La Route d’Emeraude” The road to the Emerald Triangle from Isabey was designed by Julien Viard, in a faceted bottle and a jewel-like case, reminiscent of the splendor of the Far East. This perfume is inspired, with a touch of nostalgia, by the journey leading to the “Emerald Triangle” (Thailand, Laos and Cambodia), filled with the scents of Jasmine Sambac and blooming flowers. Many Orient lovers took the path to these faraway lands and experienced sensations that are recaptured in this re-edition of the mythical perfume. Gold leather (cordovan) effect, distinctive of La Route d’Emeraude previous designs, has been preserved. The fragrance has been slightly changed. Continue reading “Perfume Review: La Route d’Emeraude by Isabey”
2019 was a good year for some perfume houses and not so good for many others, I think the list of “Worst in Fragrance 2019” would be much longer because many luxury but mass consumption houses have launched new versions of existing perfumes , the release of new perfumes was very poor and many others only chose to launch flankers without much to say or collectable bottles. In this list you will find the best of both mass consumption and the few of niche houses, all from different brands. Continue reading “Perfume: Best in Fragrance 2019”
Launched in 1926, Le Gardénia is considered as one of the most prestigious of its kind in the world. Among the rarest sixty fragrances in the book “Scentfully Precious” of J-M Martin-Hattemberg, Le Gardénia is known for its distinguished match of bottle drawn by Julien Viard and jewel case-like box elaborated by Sorys. Isabey Gardenia is the ultimate, splurge-worthy, Rembrandt of Gardenia Scents. Luminous and sensual, this captures the true essence of this bewitching bloom. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Gardénia by Isabey”
Almost finishing another year and I will have to do my list of best and worst in fragrance of 2019, and today I want to share my experience with one fragrance that actually was released during the summer time but due to work and being traveling around I haven’t had the time and chance to test it out, Aura Eau de Parfum Sensuelle by Mugler, yes another flanker of Aura, and I said a millon times I’m not a fan of flankers but this house at least puts some effort and releases good ones or at least they smell different and not all the same. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Aura Eau De Parfum Sensuelle by Mugler”
In the last years we have seen the massive production perfume brands releasing flankers after flankers, new versions of what it used to be good perfumes and very few new in fragrances have absolutely nothing new to surprise the demanding and every day more exigent customers, so the niche perfumery became more and more attractive to people looking for something different and here is one of those wonderful niche perfume houses: Floral Street Continue reading “Perfume Review: Wonderland Peony by Floral Street”

After releasing few collectables Mugler started the year with a new member of the Alien family, I’m talking about Alien Fusion, a floral-sweet Eau de Parfum which seems to be an Alien spring/summer option with that hint of fresh ginger for other it would be suitable for colder months, everything comes to personal taste and skin type, if your is quite tricky with perfumes performance and longevity then this one would suit you perfectly. A new addiction for the Alien lovers and a good chance to make it up for the ones who are not fans of it. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Alien Fusion by Mugler”

The cold months are coming and for me that means candles and diffusers to make my home a cosy place, and a powerful and delicate fragrance that would persist on my skin. That’s why I tried few items from Björk & Berries, a swedish luxury and ecological brand.
I tried their latest collection: White Forest, a sensual and melodramatic perfume of wood and fresh forest air, an exciting and mysterious scent of the deep Swedish forest that includes birch and pine. White Forest comes in a range of unisex perfume, body care and home products with natural and organic ingredients of the highest quality. The skin care products are based on organic birch extract that makes the skin toned, soft, firm and elastic. Continue reading “Björk & Berries, White Forest Collection”
If we talk about someone who always makes a revolution on the fragrance world most perfumers would say “Mugler” specially when the brand creates a new family is like something that we have never smell before, that was the case of “Angel” when it was released for a very first time. The original Aura was released last year, but I haven’t tried it yet and even when I know the notes as a reviewer nose I only talk about what I have tested because as you might know, perfumes are tricky.

I have to admit that I have never been a big fan of Kenzo fragrances, specially from the iconic Flower By Kenzo which I have to say is very unique and has an own identity that’s the reason why the years pass but it never goes out of fashion. I know many people that love flower by Kenzo and others don’t as I belong to that group I was a bit scared or reviewing this product even when I always try to be the most neutral perfumist when it comes to review a fragrance. Continue reading “Flower By Kenzo Red Edition”
