Hey folks, save up to 25% on our decants....

Did you know that you can save up to 25% on our decants if you're buying from the USA, or outside Canada? Our prices are listed in Canadian dollars, and due to recent currency re-valuations the $USD, for example, is now worth 25% more than our $CAD (approximately). For example:

CAD$4.00 decant price = USD$3.00 after conversion

Goodbye Kay!

Kay and I have been dedicated to our perfume passions since 2011, when we began writing about our favourite fragrances and sharing them with you. We wanted you to experience the magic of niche and luxury fragrances right along with us.

Ten years is a long time, and a lot has happened in the past decade. New interests emerge, grandkids and puppies come along and so Kay has reached a decision to leave to focus on the next phase of her life.

Missoni Uomo - An elegant, gentle leather

Knowing my interest in perfume and vintage scents, a friend recently brought me a bottle of Missoni Uomo eau de toilette that she'd unearthed in her husband's wardrobe while packing for a move from house to condo. It was in the original box printed with the distinctive wavy Missoni knitwear pattern, and was half full. 

Tom Ford Noir – spicy and floral and masculine


Most Saturdays throughout the summer and into late fall, my brother and I meet up and walk to the local farmer's market together. We love good food made from great produce and each other, so this is an easy way for us to catch up and just be together.

A week before Thanksgiving, I noticed something in the air as we set out for the market.

'Are you wearing a fragrance'? I asked him.

'Yep,' he said.

'But you never wear fragrance!'

'That's right.'

'But you're wearing it now.'

October tree -

One of my favourite months is October. Where I live, it starts out as late summer, when the leaves turn fiery red, burnished gold and Jack O' Lantern orange and ends as the real beginning of autumn, the leaves fallen to the ground, leaving branches, boughs and limbs bare. It has an air of melancholy about it that makes me seek coziness and comfort.
