Ithaka, Always In My Mind: Mendittorosa Perfume Review

Eyes closed, I dream about traveling to places near and distant, familiar ones greeting me with a smile, unknown ones calling my name. Travel broadens our mind and expands our hearts, yet there’s something soothingly rewarding in – returning. To yourself. I know well where my safe harbor is. Your Ithaca, my Ithaka – they… Continue reading Ithaka, Always In My Mind: Mendittorosa Perfume Review

Travelogue: The Etruscan Coast-Tuscany / Mission: Etruscan Water

This year one perfume influenced our (my?) decision where to spend our family vacation, Part I – Etruscan Water by Francesca Bianchi Perfumes. Ergo, the Etruscan Coast, what else? The rest of the team didn’t mind. Anyway, if he couldn’t talk you into visiting his birthplace, I don’t know who could: Just kidding (and not).… Continue reading Travelogue: The Etruscan Coast-Tuscany / Mission: Etruscan Water

Postcards&Letters From Cote d’Azur: The Riviera Collection/Atelier des Ors

Bien–etre. The moment I thought about this phrase, sweet memories surfaced quickly: just last Summer we were getting bucketloads of bien–etre while cruising along winding roads of Côte d’Azur, and the region of Provance–Alps Maritimes…Grasse included, of course! (if you want to find out more about things to do in Grasse, you can find my… Continue reading Postcards&Letters From Cote d’Azur: The Riviera Collection/Atelier des Ors

Menta y Menta Perfume Review / Miller et Bertaux

There are perfumes that make me smile immediately. Just like that, one spray, and that inner feel-good spark brightens up my day. I feel then like hugging that perfume, hugging myself and the whole World – to share that feeling, and make you feel the same. This happened while I was running like crazy around… Continue reading Menta y Menta Perfume Review / Miller et Bertaux

Perfume Review: Royal Blue by Olentia Nasus

You are surely familiar with that feeling when somebody just mentions a song (or says just one word), and you instantly hear this song in your head, playing on repeat, sticking around for hours, if not days while you catch yourself humming it? This happened to me while I was talking with Olentia Nasus…That old… Continue reading Perfume Review: Royal Blue by Olentia Nasus

Perfume Review: Atlante by Sarah Baker Perfumes: Dive Beneath the Surface

Atlante. I remember it struck me as „interesting“ while I was sniffing and testing literally hundreds of perfumes at Esxence Milano earlier this year. I noticed then and there that quite a few „aquatic“ fragrances were released, and I do plan to bring you closer the ones I’ve picked out. What was it that caught… Continue reading Perfume Review: Atlante by Sarah Baker Perfumes: Dive Beneath the Surface

Insta Perfume Review: Jungle Jezebel/Sarah Baker Perfumes

I made a mistake. Read reviews, discussions, pros and cons, meaningless video acclamations or words of disagreement, so that’s why I avoided sampling it until now: Jungle Jezebel from Artist Edition Collection, by Sarah Baker Perfumes, created by Miguel Matos. Ok, if you don’t like your perfumes to provoke – don’t. If you don’t like… Continue reading Insta Perfume Review: Jungle Jezebel/Sarah Baker Perfumes

Sex and the Sea (With or Without Neroli) Review/Francesca Bianchi

Ah…Summer! No, you won’t be seeing any „SummerTop 10“ or whatever lists here, simply because I believe that you can wear any fragrance you please – anytime you want to – if it feels good and makes you happy! Isn’t it fun to sometimes step out of your comfort zone, change your daily routine and… Continue reading Sex and the Sea (With or Without Neroli) Review/Francesca Bianchi

Malay Perfumery 3 Perfumes Review

Connectibility and accessibility of the world we live in make it easier to experience small indie, artisan or botanical perfume houses from all over the world! What I’ve always found enjoyable is this instant fragrant travel across the globe, learning about people behind those fragrances, different lands, and cultures. New indie and artisan perfume brands… Continue reading Malay Perfumery 3 Perfumes Review
