Royal honey
In one of the largest residential communities in the world, there is a constant buzz. If only there was one room left... Once again, we visit Barry B. Benson and accompany him on his trip to collect nectar and pollen. On a warm, sunny day, the diverse aromas of the meadow flowers are at their best and, as always, Barry finds it difficult to decide which flower to fly to first. But since he dedicates every second of his life to this task, it makes no difference where he starts his working day. By sunset, he has finished his scenic flight and paid a visit to all flowers. Now he rests and waits for the next day.

Bee takes us into the inside of the hive and shows the unconditional commitment of the mass to the individual, which ultimately ensures the survival of the community. The room-filling aroma of a true home. A flavor so sweet and warm that it lasts for a long time. A flavor so dense and compact that it stays in the memory. A blend of nectar and beeswax, slightly flavored. The subordinate role of the flowers seals the recipe for success. Viscous, golden honey dripping from the honeycombs of the beehive and capturing us in a sea of ​​delicious beehive juice. The buzzing of a colony with a tireless will to work. The queen always strives to maintain a balanced atmosphere with her queen mandibular pheromone. The fragrance shines through a skillful combination of components that leave the main focus on the honey, perceived clearly without being too sweet. Beeswax and flowers surround the honey note and complete its aura without outstripping it. The result is simply delicate. Seconds after the first bee had flown around my nose, it was clear that there is no way around Bee in my zoo.

The ten-armed bandit
Squid concentrates the diversity of the color blue, from the bright light blue to the dark ultramarine blue. With the first spray the sea is approaching. A dive into the bottomless depths of the ocean. The salty aroma of fresh sea air is already evident before reaching the coast. Volatile clouds of smoke pass through the sea breeze while you put on your scuba gear and prepare for the jump into the water. The sound of the waves suggests an uneasy tension on the water surface. Bubbling sea spray surrounds the body as it dives into the sea. Almost silently, it drifts around in the mysterious world, not knowing that already some tentacles are stretched out, reaching for it.

The fragrance combines marine elements with a spicy sweetness that makes it seem deep and unfathomable. It smells of sea air, sea water and wet sand. I see clear, blue water in all its shades of color. The fragrance fits figuratively to both moderate and cold climate on the beach. The sweetness makes it pleasing and attractive. By day, the sea is flooded with light and at night it lies under a mystical veil. Only then, they do venture to the surface, the squids. The oceanic smell of Squid bubbles prominently, resembling other representatives of this fragrance family. For this fragrance, it was very clever not to take the most obvious choice, the sperm whale itself, but his meal, the squid, without which there would be no ambergris. It was also clever to disguise the sweetness as squid ink. A diffuse black color, ink blots in the sea that dissolve as quickly as they have formed. An almost disturbing atmosphere between a melancholic whale song and the futile death fight of the squid. Seemingly endless, like the sea.

The scarlet macaw (Ara macao)
Joyeuses Tropiques traces the plumage of a scarlet macaw. Colorful, intelligent, sometimes fluent in language. The macaws are probably among the most popular and well-known parrots. Their intensely shining plumage puts even the most colorful shirts in the shade. Their habitat are mainly the tropical forests of Brazil and the fragrance dedicated to them captures this habitat with all its wealth. The opening is full of lianas and tall trees that will form the gateway to the clearing where a splendid spectacle will soon take place. Merry chants and laughter in a firework of colors: the carnival of the parrots.
Unripe tropical fruits and their leaves, harsh green determines the top note, which turns into a diffuse mixture of tropical plants. The warm tropical air condenses on the plants and dew forms on the leaves. In the base is some soil, aromatic and grassy with an appealing cocoa note. The entire vegetation of the tropical forest has been maxed out and yet the parrot spectacle doesn't really catch me. Unfortunately, the heart note doesn't really come to life on my skin and I have to smell very precisely in order to perceive something distinctive. I smell and have no opinion on this part of the fragrance. Originally, I thought I would like it the most, but it doesn't leave me satisfied. As cheerful and exotic as the scent is, it simply doesn't harmonize with me, even though it has distinctive moments.

The blue peacock (Pavo cristatus)
Parade du Soir traces the plumage of a blue peacock. Probably the most well-known species of peacock birds in the pheasant family remain in the memory due to the striking blue body feathers and the characteristic upper tail feathers of the roosters. The eye spots are often associated with oriental motifs or mystical representations. The evening robe of the peacock expresses itself as a spicy fruit dress. The plum is clearly perceptible, but not excessive. It embeds itself in a mixture of spices, woods and resins and thus gets the signature oriental scent. It is lightened by delicate flowers that only act in the background. Towards the end, more harsh spice tones flash through thanks to immortelle. The overall picture of the fragrance is striking and extravagant. The scent can be smelled in several fragrances already as well. However, it is also well constructed and seduces playfully with its multi-faceted feather layers. Peacocks are popular ornamental birds that beautify the royal temples, especially in Asia. And that's the way Parade du Soir needs to be seen. As a neat adornment perfect for evening hours, leaving a lasting impression.

The doves (Columbidae)
The plumage of the birds is as colorful and diverse as the biodiversity of this animal class itself. Actually, it seems obvious that one could make a line of perfume with plumage as a theme. However, this idea didn't come to my mind until I learned of Plumages by chance. The concept made me all the more curious, as it is finally a charming theme for a fragrance line again. The line of hobby ornithologist and photographer Véronique Bourgogne-Vatar starts with 5 different fragrances which shall bring the fascination for plumology closer.

Blanc Ciel traces the plumage of a white dove. Bright contour feathers and soft downs form a cozy coat. The fragrance starts with a juicy fruit note, which comes across as ethereal and aqueous. The impression of fruit nectar drops symbolizes a light summer rain, which rains down on the plumage and pours entirely on this. A delicate entry that leads to a gentle powder cloud in the core, determined by mimosa. The fragrance is perfected by a creamy nest of ambrette and sandalwood.
The whole scenery gives the fragrance a noticeable serenity. In fact, the dove flutters silently and sublime over the summer sky, so that its contours merge with the clouds. And it seems as if you are floating on them yourself. One feels an inner peace, always the pleasant smell in the nose, which radiates security and tender warmth. If the next shower of rain comes, it will roll off the dense plumage and protect and warm us for the duration of the shower. The fragrance is a pleasant representative of its genus, even though it can be smelled in several other scents already. The implementation, however, is very successful, because the dry, slightly sweet powder fits well with the symbol of the peace dove and arouses respect for the fragile according to this flawless appearance.
