The Ghost In The Shell by Etat Libre D'Orange Review

Etat Libre d'Orange introduced The Ghost In The Shell. "This perfume is the future," as it was simply put by Etienne de Swardt of Etat Libre d'Orange. Recently, we've seen a number of perfumes trying to illustrate the future and/or predict future perfume sentiments. Let's see what Etienne has to offer. The Ghost In The Shell is based on Etienne's appreciation of three things: – Hyperion, a sc... Read full article: The Ghost In The Shell by Etat Libre D'Orange Review from Fragrantica Perfumes...

Tutti Délices Vanille Chantilly

Tutti Délices is a collection of inexpensive gourmand fragrances that appeals to a large public not only for the small price tag but also for the fact that its sugary notes are always balanced and interesting. Recently, the brand has launched the new scent Vanille Chantilly, with an airy whipped sensation that is very pleasant and soft. If you are into discreet vanilla scents that are fluffy, ...

Beautiful, Light and Easy-to-Wear Perfumes for Ladies

Recently, teenaged girls asked me to suggest something nice and modern, that every guy likes, something ultimately feminine and pleasant to wear, yet unique. I love challenges, so I dug into my collection to find something likable, easy-to-wear, but not generic. Myself, I like beautiful casual scents, I like to feel contemporary and I like lux perfumes you can find in a local perfume store. Here a...

Comfy Classics for Sweater Weather

S’mores hot chocolate in hand, a wood fire under the chimney, snickerdoodles in the oven, the crusty hum of cranberry stuffing lingering in the air, and Christmas Day plates piled high by the sink whilst the dog licks up sacrificial scraps of bacon and split gravy on the floor. In this perennial olfactory scene, what do you want a fragrance to do for you? What function do you want it to perfor...

A Touch of Old Alchemy Books in Xerjoff CASAFUTURA

What do you think when someone says "90s perfumes?" From today's perspective, those fragrances can be seen as a bit old and outdated. But for me, they are the real jewels of perfumery, the fragrances I love the most.  What if you could create the best of the 90s, like a magician imagining a modern yet very classy style. We'd use the best of woods and spices, some powdery spells, and voilà; ... Read full article: A Touch of Old Alchemy Books in Xerjoff CASAFUTURA from Fragrantica Perfumes and ...

Clive Christian Matsukita – Jasmine Tea Smoked Over Birch

Clive Christian’s 2021 Matsukita is probably the most full-bodied, rich, and satisfying tea-based fragrance I’ve smelled. Ignore the notes for a moment, as this scent isn’t built in the tradition of classic perfumery style archetypes (fougère/chypre etc.) but instead feels like a more contemporary vision of a real-world experience condensed and bottled.  Most tea fragrances in the short h...

Fragrances and Thoughts at Thanksgiving

After giving it some thought, I believe Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. I could attribute this to any number of reasons, but I think it has something to do with that feeling one gets at the end of the grand meal, when the kitchen has been cleaned after so much work, (and scrubbing again,) and the knowledge that people are fed, and the house has been stocked with food for months ...

TFWA 2021: Solinotes Presents Amande and Freesia

Solinotes is a French fragrance brand created by Parfums Corania that gives us great quality fragrances for a very low price tag, and I am a dedicated fan of this house.

Marlou: Three Types of Body Smell

I wanted to try the French brand Marlou for a long time, since I first met the name L'Animal Sauvage in the social media feed. Wild animal? Count me in. This name promised a lot of new impressions for the animalic perfume lover. Or repeating some favorite accords, maybe? Five years after the first announcement, samples of this brand fell into my hands. By this time, there were already three of ...

Is Glorious by Boadicea The Victorious the Perfect Leather?

For a very long time, the British niche house Boadicea The Victorious was slipping under my radar; maybe the metal/glass ornamented flacons are not my type, or perhaps their selective marketing strategies and distribution made their creations very hard to find, but once I got a glimpse of the brand, their inspirational scope was interesting enough to want to explore their wide range of collecti...

Princess Zina: An Unknown Princess

You never know what will start another immersion into history. In this case, it was a small but amazing gift from John Biebel, my Fragrantica colleague from the USA - a vintage mini-bottle with large letters spelling "Lily Of The Valley and Orchid" on its label. In smaller letters, it says, "Synthetic Bouquet, Princess Zina, Distributor Jersey City, N.J." There is no box, and the bottom of the ...

BeautyWorld Middle East 2021: The Unknown Bestseller?

The world of perfumery is huge and diverse. The BeautyWorld Middle East 2021 exhibition has confirmed this once again. In my BWME 2021 reviews, I have already written about the niche brands of the region (Quintessence, Artal), about the stands of the largest corporations in the world (Firmenich, Givaudan, Symrise, CPL Aromas, Iberchem) and their innovations, but the bulk of the exhibitors were oth...

Contemporary Fougères For Winter: Three Under-The-Radar Picks

Convention dictates winter as the season for rich ambers, smoky-spicy woods, and sappy, indulgent resins, but fougères can take on a deeply satisfying and surprising sense of melancholy and poignance when worn in colder weather. Their bracing top notes and herbal zing chirp a lonelier, calmer tune, and their thick shaving cream bases lose drama and extroversion, instead appearing humbler and more...
