Cerebrating celebrity...
you see the wand, don't you?) Damn, I find Tom Selleck a very handsome and masculine man. How on earth did he get himself into this tragic travesty?On the other hand there's always the case of some prestigious perfume houses constantly praying not to be endorsed this way.(Farewell Lemmy. I'll miss you something fierce bro...)In the documentary from where the picture...

Mind the (generation) gap...
maelstrom.Yes, yes, I know it's not nice to judge people by the way they look. I've been treated the same way many times, so I'm the last who would perpetuate such a wrong partisanship. After all Bruce Lee stood a mere 5' 7" and was one step away from being emaciated. And by the way, I really miss a possible fragrance ("Wata!" perhaps?) that might have been...

The Fougère Project
reluctantly masculine, let's at least focus on the homoeroticism of it. If not, let's share. The dykes of the 1980s showed us the way when they appropriated Guy Laroche Drakkar Noir. Let women take the fougère for a while. I bet they could show us quite a bit about it. And after all, I wear Miss Balmain and Private Collection. Why shouldn't my sisters wear Paco Rabanne...

Flanker Strategies
them are the Bait-and-Switch, aka The Flanker-in-Name-Only, and the Pink-and-Blue. In the Bait-and-Switch, the name of the original perfume gets your attention, but the new perfume has nothing else in common with the old. Bait-and-Switch was brilliant for launching Miss Dior Cherie, which had not a thing to do with the original Miss Dior. The original Miss...

Bogue Maai, memento mori and the traps of artisanal perfumery.
forget the words, focus on the work. Until this moment, I’ve discussed the marketing, the hype. As for the the perfume, it is exceptionally beautiful. It is a woody-floral chypre, a genre that includes the icons of contemporary and classic perfumery such as Clinique Aromatics Elixir, Dior’s Miss Dior, VeroProfumo Onda and Estée...

Slumberhouse, an overview (2014)
with celebu-scents and the commercial marketing wizards and armed with a fruity floral. Take that Britney and Sephora! Sadanne presents a brilliant trap for the perfume cognoscenti. If you try to dismiss the opening strawberry compote in order to appreciate the seriousness of the perfume, you’ll miss the fun and the beauty of Sadanne. In established Slumberhouse...

Against Notes
of us and we're left trying to reconcile a perfume’s meaning for us with what others might find. The same can be said of any work of art, but since there is so little shared language of scent, the situation is exaggerated. Notes might give the appearance of common ground for discussion but they miss the larger point. We rely on sight and sound to hold language. Perfumes...

How to tame a sa(u)vage...
with 80 of them made for Dior, is something that must have helped perfumery's diversity a lot. An awful lot. It seems that his exhausting rate of spitting out "new" fragrances granted him the privilege to be Eau Sauvage's saviour. Or slayer...Let's also see how Dior itself describes him."Since Miss Dior in 1947, Dior has collaborated with some of the greatest...

The Unbearable Action of Wanting
we have for long. As soon as you think “I’ve found my signature scent,” another beauty comes along and sweeps you off your feet. Dior’s Privee Collection, much like Armani Prive and Chanel Les Exclusifs, is a high end set of beautiful perfumes that are more refined than the typical Miss Cherie and J’Adore you find at the mall. Like most such collections,...

Vintage talks and reason walks...
in their own boxes. The price is US$300 for 100ml and US$600 for 200ml. If you are interested send me an e-mail at..." The message was accompanied by a picture showing the goods. I loved Macassar something fierce back in the day, and it's one of the discontinued fragrances that I miss the most. But how this dude found that I was in desperate need of some...

Guess It's Time To Finally Think About Spring Perfumes...
It's not in the 30's anymore. Doesn't mean it still won't dip to the 30's, tho. I finally had to start thinking about switching perfumes. And that's difficult for me. I love my heavy orientals. And my chypres. My smoky scents. My thick powerful perfumes. And now Spring has sprung. I wore Miss Dior Cherie today and it almost gave...

My miniatures
I always make sure that I have a bottle in my collection. However, I found this as well which is a miniature bottle of pure parfum. The golden colour is so reminiscent of the honey note in White Linen even though the bottle is quite plain. I have various vintage bottles of Miss Dior as it is one of the classics that I adore. This is my Esprit de Parfum miniature bottle. ... Dior...
