Fragrances - Annick Goutal - Mon Parfum Cheri, Par Camille

Nov/01/2012

A few weeks ago while in NYC, my friends and I went on a sniffing tour around the city. We stopped at the Annick Goutal counter at Bergdorf Goodman and talked to Tom, and he showed us most of the line. I found Mon Parfum Cheri, Par Camille to be the most intriguing of the line, and I couldn't stop smelling it. Every store that carried it, I'd stop, spray, and sniff it again! The plum …Read more

It's a lovely creamy sandalwood fragrance, but honestly to my nose, it smells exactly like Jeaux de Peau. So, if you own Jeaux de Peau, you probably don't need Santal Majuscule and can spend your money on something else... unless maybe you want a decant... ;-)

Fragrances - Prada - Infusion d'Iris EDP

This is a very fresh, light, pretty scent, and I have received several compliments on this fragrance. The iris in this has a slightly woody, pepper, and incense base to my nose, but the base notes are not overdone- just there enough to warm the fragrance. Infusion d'Iris reminds me of an early summer sunrise; there is a bit of cool air and dew, but the sun starts to warm the iris flowers. I …Read more

Imagine yourself at a fall gathering on a sunny day with your best friends on a hay ride, as the wagon drives by the country house where Grandma is baking sweets. The hay ride continues, and you pass by the dried up corn fields. You stop to get some foddershock for Grandma's porch. The wagon finally drops you off at the fresh pumpkin patch, where you pick out the pumpkin that you are going …Read more

Imagine you are laying on a beach sipping on Brazil's national cocktail- the Caïpirinha drink, which is made from cachaça (sugar cane rum), sugar, and limes. The sun is warm, but the salty breeze kisses your skin. Your main concern for the day is making sure you keep on sunscreen and that you relax. Ah, life is good.

This is how I describe Batucada …

Think slightly boozy, white chocolate, pipe tobacco smoke... That would be SDV. It's probably the most gorgeous and sophisticated vanilla I have ever smelled!!! I wear this on the coldest days and imagine that I am staying at a mountain cabin, sitting on the couch reading a novel, while feeling the warm of the fireplace and my SDV. It's pricey but so worth it! :-)

L'Artisan Nuit de Tubereuse is my absolute favorite perfume, replacing Diptyque Tam Dao as my #1 fragrance. NdT is so beautiful... The tuberose IS there, but it isn't loud and in your face like Fracas. And, it isn't meant to be. As the translation means "Night of Tuberose," the notes are more hushed and more intimate. The predominant notes that stand out to me are …Read more

Oh Chance! I am so glad you are mine at last!

I just bought myself Chance EDT... Love it! This is a perfect blend of citrus and floral. Very light on vanilla... The vanilla helps smooth any of the rough edges out the fragrance. Great for those days that you want to smell elegant yet simple (I'm thinking Ralph Lauren clothing) and very fresh and clean. :-)
