Perfumed Horoscope: June 1 - June 6

  Our minds can occasionally become like a puppet show, where nothing sticks out as meaningful. Then, like thunder, strong emotions arrive and rearrange us, and push our priorities in front of us. This is a common Lunar Eclipse pattern (June 5th.) It is like a regular full moon, only stronger. Frustrations with relationships culminate, “and lack of self-control could turn love to hate, re...

Who's more handsome: Alexandre or Aleksandr?

There are two fragrances in my collection named after Alexanders. The first is Aleksandr by Arquiste, dedicated to the famous Russian poet Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin and his last, fateful duel. The second is Alexandre by Prudence Paris; brand owner Prudence Kilgour made it with kind thoughts about her father, Alexandre. Both are the same age, released in 2012. Different legends led to the cre... Read full article: Who's more handsome: Alexandre or Aleksandr? from Fragrantica Perfumes and C...

RUNDHOLZ PARFUMS: An Incense and Orris Journey

After eleven weeks of being inside my apartment, I’ve sought to re-encounter the archive of samples and bottles of fragrance with which I cohabitate. I’m fantasizing an existential encounter at the proportions of those expressed in, say, Clarice Lispector’s The Passion According to G.H. or Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper.” In these texts, the protagonists become derang...

Fragrances Instead Of Pills?

You probably thought: The heading clearly exaggerates the medicinal value of perfumes. You are correct that evidence-based medicine will not recommend DolceGabbana Light Blue as an antidepressant, and Ambre Sultan Serge Lutens will not pass double blind tests proving its use as a sedative or antipyretic medicine. I do not pretend to find a substitute for Aspirin or Prozac among perfumes - I am s... Read full article: Fragrances Instead Of Pills? from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magazine....

Cinnamon in the Kitchen and in Perfumery

Recently, when I was sorting through spices in my kitchen, I suddenly thought that American singer Suzanne Vega often mentions different scents in her songs, including spices. This prompted me toward the topic of today's conversation about cinnamon. Cinnamon, or Cinnamomum verum is a plant from the genus Cinnamomum, its dried bark has been used as spice since ancient times. It is found in the ...

How Many Ways Can You Remix a Feminine Fougère?

There are only 54 fragrances in the Fragrantica database that are catalogued as being both a fougère and marketed towards women. Of course, there have been countless lavender soliflores produced over the years that are encouraged for wear by both men and women.

Underworld, by Christele Jacquemin - Seductive in Chiaroscuro

Among this year's finalists of the Art and Olfaction Award, I discovered a name that I had never heard before: Christèle Jacquemin. The photographer and perfumer released three perfumes last year that come with their own imagery, but the one that captured my heart was not the one that the jury chose for an award. Impermanence may be stunning and just glistening with its beauty and natural feeling... Read full article: Underworld, by Christele Jacquemin - Seductive in Chiaroscuro from Fragrantic...

Three New Sun-Drenched Creations by GAS Bijoux

In 2006, the French jewelry brand GAS launched its first fragrance, Ensoleille-Moi. The scent revolved around the essence of a memory dear to the creator of the brand, André Gas, "that of the skin of the women of Saint-Tropez after a day spent at the beach, under the sun of the 70s." This is indeed where the history of Gas began, when the founder sold his creations in Pampelone on the road to the...

Mon Evidence Yves Rocher Review

In the modern Pantheon of rose fragrances, Mon Evidence Yves Rocher takes the place of Cinderella: Its inexpensive and cute composition is far from the heavy luxury of the luxe or the atypical strange elegance of a niche, but it gets a lot of sympathy from the public. The fragrance received the Fragrance of the Year 2018 Award in Russia in the Life Style Femme category, as well as the Fifi Aw...

Cuir Venitien by David Jourquin

Cuir Venitien by David Jourquin became one of the best fragrances at Esxence 2016 according to the Fragrantica team, entering the Must Try list, but then it went under my radar.

New Symptoms of the Lipstick Effect

All sorts of pop cultural and esoteric signs suggested that 2020 was to be the year of the foot, and while there certainly seems to be a burgeoning cottage industry of homemade foot photos being sold to an appreciating audience on the Internet, as we’ve been driven indoors and into quarantine, it seems another fetish is being scripted into the perfumes being delivered to our doorsteps.

Cinnabar Estée Lauder - The Classic Collection

Every time Cinnabar Estee Lauder is mentioned, someone will recall Opium Yves Saint-Laurent immediately, and compare the two perfumes.

Opium quickly overshadowed Cinnabar with its scandalous advertising and it brought s... Read full article: Cinnabar Estée Lauder - The Classic Collection from Fragrantica Perfumes an...
