An unusual cocktail of spiced florals. The unusually *STRONG* spicy african orange blossoms in this edp really knocks me to the wall with real raw power. Longevity: Very long. Sillage: Very strong. Besides orange blossom, raspberry & fig, notes are: TOPNOTES: Bergamot, Galbanum. MIDDLE: GERANIUM, ROSE, JASMINE. Base: White musk.

Perfection *5 stars out of 5* - I'm not all about "niche+highend". There are some hidden treasures out there. This is one. An amazingly good Lilac-soliflore. A fragile spring-beauty. A big realistic bouquet of light purple lilacs. Superb lastingpower and with a very good sillage. Perfumer: Annick Ménardo (the nose behind Guerlain's Bois d'Armenie, Le Labo's Patchouli …Read more

Fragrances - Space NK - Champaca

i did own "Freak" by Illamasqua. But swapped it. Amazingly cool bottle indeed. But I still much more prefer this "Champaca" by SPACE NK. Both Freak & this scent is made by the same nose: AZZI GLASSER. The scents are very similar, but this one from space nk smells, in my own humble opinion, much better. PLUS it lasts longer. Is more unique. And best of all = is cheaper. If …Read more

Oh, how can I put this in words? Rose Ispahan is the scent of an luxurious chocolate-rose praline. Smells nichey+expensive. A work of perfume-art! Sadly hard to find today! Reminds me *A LOT* of Les Parfums de Rosine "Rose Praline". BUT Rose Ispahan smells even better - How is that even possible? Amazing Amzing Rose Ispahan! AND! Look at this gorgeous golden bottle. Isn't that a …Read more

Jun/05/2012

This is an amazingly realistic tiare scent, pure and real imo. Nothing synthetic about it, just beautiful! Very longlasting, so spray with a very light hand. Would suit a person who loves authentic tropical floral scents like Monyette, MOR Cosmetics Tahitian & so on. Hei poa is the delicately fresh scent of Tiare blossoms. In Tahiti Tiara is the generic name for all flowers, they are the …Read more

Jun/04/2012

This is what YSL's "Babydoll" would smell like as a grown up woman. Amazing stayingpower for a fruity floral (edp-strenght rather than edt). Potent, mature & sparkling for grown up women. This is a mischievous pink essence that stimulates the senses with a sparkling duo of Red Grapefruit & Pink Peppercorn from Mauritius. In it's floral heart, the exuberance of …Read more

Mar/31/2012

Lovely!! I like that it smells like real gardenia. Many scents say they have gardenia in them, but few smell of the real gardenia. To me this is a untamed wild wild version of Lauders Private Colletion "Tuberose Gardenia". Notes: wild Ylang-Ylang, gardenia, bulgarian rose absolute, sandalwood, orange flower absolute. And a pinch of nutmeg, which adds that extra "omph" to the …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Jacomo Silences

Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2012

The original formulation of "Jacomo Silences" is actually discontinued. Keep in mind that Silences was launced 1978 - that was 34 years ago - so through the years there have been several different formulations on what's actually inside this beautiful black bottle. Perfume-collectors & passionate perfume-lovers know this, so it may come as an suprise for anyone going to the …Read more
