Noir Épices - A Revelation (December 3, 2010 New Fragrance Listing)

A revelation happened today. Here’s the story............

La Myrrhe - Le meilleur (December 1, 2010 New Fragrance Listing)

Tis the season….figgy puddings, five golden rings, gold frankincense and myrrh ….so this seems like the perfect time to talk about La Myrrhe by Serge Lutens.  Well, really, anytime is the perfect time to talk about La Myrrhe cause it’s just that kind of frag, but most people’s first encounter with myrrh is as one of the gifts of the Three Wise Men, but in fact it goes waaaaay back.

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

I was blissing out in My Favourite Perfume Store 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.
