Mona Di Orio Vanille – Vanilla As You’ve Never Smelt It Before!

Have you ever popped the cap off a scent bottle, held it to your nose, and thought, “Wow! I could never even have dreamed the way the perfumer has expressed this idea / accord / note?” That was my initial reaction to Mona Di Orio’s Vanille when I first smelt it back in 2014, and it’s still how I feel about it today.

Aspi Engineer And Winning the Aga Khan Race

Our dear friend Rusi Sorabji writes…. I attach something I wrote about friend, ASPI Engineer*, the 17 years old should go down in the annals of World Aviation better than the likes of Alcock & Brown, Charles Lindbergh, Emelia Earhart, Amy Johnson and to correct the continuous mis-information that is floating around that it was Man Mohan Singh that came first in the Aga Khan Race.

Ire and Fury in Perfumes

Fallen Angel, Alexandre Cabanel, 1868 When planning to write a piece on ire and fury in the context of perfumery, I was pondering something other than the emotions when dealing with a fellow subway commuter or a woman next to you in an elevator doused in some potent, sweet, and completely intolerable perfume, even though aficionados of cloying, stifling compositions which do not consider ...

Dermablend Lock and Last Water-Resistant Setting Spray Is Killing Me With This Formula

Dermablend Lock and Last Water-Resistant Setting Spray ($26) brings us a new hydrating makeup setting spray for Summer 2021. Dermablend promises this new mist will hydrate skin while sealing in moisture…. Yeah, not so much. I’m so disappointed in this because I’m a huge fan of Insta-Grip Jelly Primer 3-in-1 Multi-Tasking Primer and this is an extension of that product as they promise this provides the same seal and grip as the primer but it contains alcohol and witch hazel. Boooooo! It makes...

Ich wurde jung zur Witwe – & möchte nie wieder eine feste Beziehung

Als mein Mann starb, schwor ich mir, von jetzt an Single zu bleiben. Nicht aus Trauer – sondern weil ich kein Interesse daran hatte, je wieder eine feste Beziehung zu führen. Meine Ehe war auf eine Art traumatisch gewesen, die mir erst nach ihrem abrupten Ende bewusst wurde, und meine oberste Priorität war es jetzt erstmal, meine vier Kinder in einem nicht-toxischen Umfeld großzuziehen. Mein Plan, alleinerziehende Mutter zu bleiben, sollte aber nicht heißen, dass ich mich von jetzt an sexuell...

Cigalia Roger Gallet Review

Cigalia is very well known among collectors of vintage perfume bottles. It was the first project that René Lalique created for the perfume company Roger Gallet in 1910. Later, Lalique created many other fine bottles for RG (Rose Rouge, Le Jade, Paquerettes, Narkiss, Flausa, Partir, etc.), but for us Fragranticans, the beautiful and rare flacon that regularly brings four-digit sums on auction...

Warum Klatsch & Tratsch gut für dich ist (im Ernst)

Bei dem folgenden Text handelt es sich um einen Auszug aus dem Buch You’re Not Listening von Kate Murphy, das aufzeigt, wie oft wir einander nicht zuhören, und warum das von Bedeutung ist. Während Klatsch und Tratsch – das Flüstern hinter vorgehaltener Hand auf Partys oder das schelmische Gemurmel in den Pausenräumen von Büros – oft als heimliches Vergnügen oder Laster angesehen wird, hat er eigentlich eine positive soziale Funktion. Es gibt einen Grund, warum es sich bei bis zu zwei Dritteln...
