Eau de Sud – A "go-to" scent (June 16, 2010 New Fragance Listing)

I want to talk about summer – summer scents, that is.

I’m not what I call a “freshy” or a citrus lover – I want a smell more complex than a simple lemon, an orange, or a beach. BUT -  in the heat of summer my preferences can be fickle, and suddenly I’m scrambling to find the fresh scents at the back of my perfume stash.

Sicily – Ciao bella!

I got the Mondays. A bad case of the Mondays. If this were a Tuesday, it would be a bad case of the ‘I-don’t-wanna’s. But it’s not Tuesday – it’s Monday. Too early for a glass of wine, too much to do to go back to bed, too many deadlines to go shopping  - there’s just one thing for it: a short fracay*.

Monacle Scent One: Hinoki - Rub-a-dub-dub!

Monocle magazine is one of my fave reads. The magazine does a great job of keeping readers up to date on travel, design and trends in pop culture. Wanna know about a luxury hotel near Les Houches? Where does Parisian baker Jean-Luc Poujaran take his morning coffee? How about those Delvaux newspaper bags? I devour each issue….slowly. The content, the marketing, the brand are just genius.

Ninfeo Mio – An Italian garden

 

Nuit de Tubéreuse - In a word - STUNNING! (June 8, 2010 New Fragrance Listing)

My fresh-out-of the-box 100 ml. bottle of Nuit de Tubéreuse sits beside my laptop as I write this. I bought it today.

For me, this is a coup. Luckyscent in Los Angeles is taking pre-orders and shipping late June. No stores in Toronto have Nuit de Tubéreuse in stock yet – except the small shop where I found it today. Why do they have it, and no one else?  I have no idea, but Fate had a hand in this, because I’ve been craving this perfume since I first smelled it three weeks ago.

Le Temps d'Une Fête - Garden in a bottle – May 31, 2010 New Fragrance Listing.

Green is my favourite colour – always has been. Any shade, any tint. Given a choice, unconsciously, I keep going for the green - in clothes, in decor, in art and in scent. Especially in scent.
