Fahrenheit - a perfume on a Different Scale
a trilogy that Sieuzac composed between 1981 and 1988. They are in different genres; a fougère, a leather and a green fragrance, but they share a constellation of notes and revolve around the same dark and brooding theme. There is a clear - if rather complex - development across the trilogy that reaches a climax with Fahrenheit. Because the evolution...

Rose on a budget
thankfully an honourable exception. It is for me the best perfume of this brand, besides presenting us with an extremely intense and seductive rose. It should only not be worn in summer and is suitable for all environments except the gym or the beach. Its longevity is over 8 hours and its sillage reaches approximately two metres. The price? I bought my 105ml backup bottle...

am new to the world of fragrance been into it about a year. My favorite note is peach. I love peaches to eat also!! I have some great fruity performers but am exploring other scents. I don’t like scents that are too masculine on me. Love them on men. I’m a nurse and previously couldn’t wear scents as I worked icu for a long time. Now I can and although I don’t...

Oh dear, that's very safe
whole process begins all over again. See the switch from 80’s powerhouse tuberoses to Cool Water and cK One - and their clones in the 90’s; it’s the same process at work. So, after a flash of insight, and a lot of hard work, a snowball is set in motion that can be unstoppable - until it reaches the bottom of the hill and lumbers to a halt. As well as good...

Why o why
for me. seasonal scents at least what we read are only an indication and one does not have to stick to this. people are better disposed in good weather anyway, but which scent enhances your emotions? last summer we unfortunately couldn't go on holiday and Soleil Blanc TF took me back to the beaches of southern France. away with the seasons and let's create our own little world...

A Slightly Bitter Taste Of Lost Things
It has been a holiday resort since the times of the Roman Republic, and its timeless appeal means it is just as popular today. The island is located just south of the Gulf of Naples in the beautiful Campania region. Brilliant blue waters splash over the quaint island’s limestone rocks and pebble beaches, creating a vision of ageless tranquility....

We found audacious experiments with bitter smoke, fruity peaches, rich amber, soothing pines, dusky woods, spiritual...

Summer Solstice is all about Adventurous Scents
Solstice... it occurs when the Earth is most tilted towards the sun and is the longest day of the year. In the Northern Hemisphere, and in Italy of course, “peak” sunlight usually occurs on June 20, 21, or 22 of any given year. That’s the summer solstice. By contrast, the Southern Hemisphere reaches peak sunlight on December 21, 22, or 23 and the north...
The Gourmand Apocalypse
But that’s food. Somehow a baptism with Patou Joy and Lanvin Arpège has protected me from the fruity-floral-induced type-two diabetes of the soul that seems to have affected whole generations of people.I don’t argue for embracing a tofu sensibility of perfume use. Quite the opposite, perfume teaches me that portion control and moderation are of little value,...
A Fruity Floral Comparison, or; Big Fish, Small Pond
Even more, the name implies night-blooming jasmine, the vampire of fragrant plants with a narcotic miasma of flowers and flesh. Unfortunately, having built expectation into its name, Fleurs de Nuit defeats itself. Without the requisite seamy side, and with the addition of a half can of cling peaches, Fleurs de Nuit is both loud and vague,...
Bogue Maai, memento mori and the traps of artisanal perfumery.
exclusivity, finery that nestles into our self-esteem and goes to work. We are entitled. We deserve it. It’s good for me. You’ve seen the chain of associations before.To wit: Custom made. First edition. Limited production. Handcrafted. Exclusive. Rare. 90 % locally sourced/10% from the exotic reaches of the globe (this one plays...
