Or Black - Butch in the best sense (November 26, 2010 New Fragrance Listing)

I was blissing out in My Favourite Perfume Store (MFPS) last Thursday, scanning the walls and the counters for treasures. My eye caught two words on a box in the men’s counter and the words came out of mouth without thinking “I’ll try a sniff of Or Black, please”.

Caravelle Épicée - Whiffing me a Merry Christmas! (November 19th, 2010 New Fragrance Listing)

Three years ago I ordered decants from Luckyscent, and among them was a sample of the new launch by Frapin, called Caravelle Épicée. The story of the historic French cognac house, Frapin, which was now making perfumes, was intriguing to my mind, and I love spicy Oriental scents, so I was really looking forward to receiving the sample.

Comme des Garçons LUXE Patchouli - Much, much more than patchouli

Fall and Winter are my favourite perfume seasons. That’s when I get to wear my favourites and they do their magic on me once again – I’m like a cat on catnip, a kid with a new toy – total bliss. Like Gwen, I crave dark, rich, spicy scents when the weather is cold – this week she reached for Sables by Annick Goutal, I chose LUXE Patchouli by Comme des Garçons.
