Epicentro by Filippo Sorcinelli – New Perfume Review: Délire

“What do you think about it?” – he asked, softly. “It smells like fear…bitterness of loss… and…hope.” – I answered. Epicentro, the first fragrance in the Filippo Sorcinelli’s new collection Delire de Voyage, was presented for the first time at Esxence Milan 2019, and a multimedia artistic installation, featuring a synesthetic journey, took place on… Continue reading Epicentro by Filippo Sorcinelli – New Perfume Review: Délire

Unutamam Perfume Review / Nishane / No Boundaries Experimental Collection

This happens often. I pull out a perfumes sample pack, start testing one by one, taking notes for “drafts&quick sniffs“, and usually the one from which I expect the most, or the one I’m uncertain of mentioning at all -is the last one to be worn and tested extensively on my skin. Unutamam had to… Continue reading Unutamam Perfume Review / Nishane / No Boundaries Experimental Collection

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

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

Days turning into months have quickly passed since Esxence – The Scent of Excellence closed its doors, but here I go again: a flashback, bringing you more behind-the-screen stories about people of perfumes, events and extras, all that jazz that took place outside The Mall! I could probably write more about different aspects of this… Continue reading Act III: Events&Extras @Esxence 2019

Dreaming About a Garden in Paradise: Casablanca/St. Clair Scents

It has been raining every single day these last couple of weeks, and to me it felt almost like being in Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Macondo (“It rained for four years, eleven months, and two days…“)… I pulled out the sample of St.Clair Scents Casablanca (2018), wanting to be transported to “a garden in paradise”! I… Continue reading Dreaming About a Garden in Paradise: Casablanca/St. Clair Scents

Ave Perfumes! Esxence 2019 – Part II

There were moments at Esxence when I felt like a gladiator in an arena, roaming around crowded floors of The Mall, armed with love and determination, in search of perfumes that might disarm me with their artistic creativity and originality, touch me soul-deep tapping into something unconscious, spiritual, profound, and cause waves of emotions…well, some… Continue reading Ave Perfumes! Esxence 2019 – Part II

Southern Bloom – Goldfield&Banks Australia

I see skies of blue, flowers pink and yellow, lilac and white, tree branches budding with fresh green leaves, dainty little fruit-tree and big, porcelain-cup thick Magnolia blossoms everywhere! Yes, Spring is here…Persephone has returned! Spring in March, still struggling with chilly mornings and evenings, but it seems like everything bloomed in only a couple… Continue reading Southern Bloom – Goldfield&Banks Australia
