New fragrance Dolce Kaos from VIADEIMILLE Sicilia

The new Sicilian brand Viadeimille, named after the street address of the small distillery in the historical town of Noto (Sicilia), has introduced its latest fragrance, Dolce Kaos. The idea of "sweet chaos" stems from a short circuit of thoughts that brings together a phrase by the Sicilian writer Luigi Pirandello, a famous film by the Taviani brothers, and a real but mythical place in Sicily c...

Heures d’Absence 2020 – Heritage Notes For Heritage Tastes

I was thoroughly disappointed at the reveal of the regenerated Les Parfums Louis Vuitton in 2016 – well-made scents with convention-binding structures. You can get the same styles at the same quality for far less elsewhere. Rather than stand alone as jewelled olfactory creations in their own right, the opening set appeared as added enticements for clothes shoppers at the end of their spree. The...

Gentle Fluidity Gold – Is Beauty or Accomplishment More Important?

Kurkdjian’s game didn’t work. The core brief of the Gentle Fluidity project was to compose different scents with the same notes list. To that end, the goal was achieved; not stated was the implicit notion that this is somehow a challenge. The perfumer made completely different fragrances by, essentially, swapping around the proportions of top and base notes between them, yet they share no per...

Nakuna Helsinki: From Finland, Buck Naked

The Esxence expo in Milan has traditionally served as a great launch pad for many niche brands. Among this year's upcoming debuts, one of the most promising brands is Finnish Nakuna Helsinki, who will present their collection of five fragrances at the 12th annual Esxence expo. I think many will agree that Scandinavia is not the first place that comes to mind when talking about perfumery. Th...

Acqua di Parma Yuzu – Bursting With Happiness

My reviews of Osmanthus and Camelia from the Acqua di Parma “Signatures of the Sun” collection highlighted their masterful balance and unique twists. Yuzu is no different, emphasising the tart and explosive power of a lesser-used citrus fruit.   Blueprint The brand describes their Yuzu as, “A sparkling and energising fragrance that combines the bittersweet notes of yuzu with vibrant and ...

Freshness According to Molinard: A New Line Within the Matières Collection

Two weeks ago, Molinard unveiled its vision of “La Fraîcheur” (the freshness), a new range within its Matières collection. To mark the occasion, the brand organized a friendly and enjoyable gathering in the heart of the restaurant "Oursin", perched on the roof of Galeries Lafayette Champs-Elysées (whose exhaustive selection, especially in niche, is quite staggering!).

The Allure of Boozy Perfumes: A Trio of Perfume 'Drinks'

There was a time when the smell of alcohol in perfume, the smell of scotch or bourbon or vodka, would have been met with cold stares or even a laugh or two. Cartoonist Roz Chast made a parody of men’s scents; one of them was simply called “My Scotch” (it smelled like someone who’d been drinking too much.) But along the way, people remembered that there was something wonderfully rich and m... Read full article: The Allure of Boozy Perfumes: A Trio of Perfume 'Drinks' from Fragrantica Perfumes a...

Camphor Notes in Perfumery

You may disagree, but the popular dichotomous method of choosing a fragrance generally employed at stores ("What do you prefer, fresh or sweet"?) does not work. The perfunctory note listing is also mostly just smoke and mirrors: it is not that important what a fragrance is made of, the much more important thing is how it was made. Fire your designer if he thinks that people look in the upper... Read full article: Camphor Notes in Perfumery from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magazine.

Rose Goldea Blossom Delight – Simple and Satisfying

In many ways, it is surprising that it took Bvlgari so long to release Goldea (2016) – they needed a fruity floral that allowed them to reach the largest audience possible, and the product they supplied gave you everything you’d want from a versatile sweet-and-easy day wear scent.  The deep rich rose of Rose Goldea came later the same year, followed by the more gourmand Goldea The Roman Night...

This week our focus is ideally on calming down, so we can access our true potential. We experience so much in such a short amount of time, but we have no time to process what happens to us. This is where all our "problems" come from, layers and layers of unprocessed and not integrated emotions and experiences. We never "have" time. Time has us.
