July 1 2016 – Celebrating Canada


The Maple Leaf, the most recognized symbol of Canada -

July 1 is Canada Day, our national holiday celebrating the date Canada became an independent country on Confederation Day, July 1, 1867.

Most of the fragrances we own and write about originate in other parts of the world - Europe or Great Britain or the United States -  but since we are celebrating our Canadian heritage and all things Canadian, today we want to feature talented Canadian perfumers and some of their wonderful fragrances.

We've bought and written about many of these exceptional scents, which we’ve listed in our Decant Store, and here’s the list with links to our posts where you can read all about them….

These Canadian scents truly belong in the wide world of perfume because beautiful fragrances transcend all borders and boundaries!

We’re happy to ship decants to wherever you live in the world (with a few exceptions) so, go ahead and try some of these expertly-crafted Canadian niche and artisanal scents.

We’re absolutely positive you won’t be disappointed.
