In Serbian, Turkish, and Urdu, kasaba means a small provincial town, and in Yem... Read full article: Casbah Robert Piguet: The Ancient City from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magaz...

Oud de Robert Piguet: Brand Image Is Above All

  The combination of the incompatible. How can the word "oud" (the resin of an endangered and rare aquilaria tree of Southeast Asia) and the French perfume house Robert Piguet be in one sentence? The Oud de Robert Piguet perfume was really launched in 2012 in Nouvelle Collection Robert Piguet (and even gave birth to a couple of flankers, that were reviewed by our colleague, Miguel). Even before... Read full article: Oud de Robert Piguet: Brand Image Is Above All from Fragrantica Perfumes and ...

Robert Piguet L'Insomnuit: What Keeps You Awake?

  Yes I am a fan of Robert Piguet fragrances. Yes I feel frantic every time I see there is a new edition coming out. Now, after I made myself clear about my Piguet adoration (only the sound of the words Bandit and Fracas gives me a chill down my spine), I also manage to keep my discernment and I recognize I obviously don't love everything the brand does. It's only natural and a sign of my menta... Read full article: Robert Piguet L'Insomnuit: What Keeps You Awake? from Fragrantica Perfumes an...

Christian Dior, Couturier du Reve

Every year there’s at least one must-see exhibit I urge people to see and if they have to, plan a special trip here to see it.

For 2017 it’s without question the Christian Dior, Couturier du Reve. Marking the 70th anniversary of the legendary fashion house, it’s an all out, grand celebration that is truly exhilarating and magi...

Joyeuse Tubéreuse Guerlain: Not Even Close to a Lolita

I have been waiting Guerlain's new Joyeuse Tubéreuse fragrance for exactly the same reason that it has been criticized by certain tuberose fans — it is far from the image of this flower we are accustomed to. Here you won't find anything recalling classics like Fracas Robert Piguet, or novelties like Tubéreuse Manifeste Evody. I was experiencing the same joy of smelling a tuberose of that ki...

Perfume exhibitions like Esxence are not only the perfect events to feel the pulse of the niche fragrance industry and see what's new. They are not only the happy reunion of colleagues and friends, people that speak the same language. In my point of view they are also very useful to keep me updated regarding recent releases, as well as to smell perfumes that may not be new but are somewhat hard ...
