Blanc. White: rarely is the color of white – what is considered pure white, and characterized by red, green, and blue codes that are exactly equal, thus marked with Hex triplet #FFFFFF. If you ask interior designers, they all agree that there are so many variations of white, and only reading the names of different “whites” is fun. Even if you are dealing with pure white, it’s an illusion. White is a perception we have when our eyes are confronted with all visible wavelengths of light! All colors of the rainbow united give white, but all materials that scatter light in every direction also appear white.
Blanc Polychrome by Atelier Des Ors is an array of bright colors that swirl around joyfully before uniting to form a glowing beam of light.
Ever since I first heard the news about a new addition to the Francesca Bianchi‘s line of perfume, I had itchy fingers, impatient to try her most recent creation. And no wonder, since months felt like years at the time we all lost count of days in a week, and everything stopped almost overnight during March.
Sticky Fingers is available since late June, and now we’re talking!
Better said – rocking that patchouli, and here comes my complete review!

„It was like nobody ever saw me. Even I didn’t know if I really existed. – The Joker
Joker, the most recent film (2019), together with Zeitgeist of 2020 inspired the creation of Le Joker perfume by Art de Parfum. This dark, disturbing story about a supervillain that first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman in 1940, elicits a whole mix of feelings such as deep disgust, unexpected sorrow, and strange pleasure. It’s not about whether you might „like“ this movie or not, the fact is that it makes you FEEL a whole array of different emotions. Isn’t that what all art is about, after all? Perfume should do the same.
When I first read propositions for the Dusita Short Poetry Contest published on Fragrantica (12th of May – 15th of June 2020) I thought I had no chance, however beautiful and inviting this idea was. To write a haiku poem? But haiku is such a demanding form, that was my first thought.
Categories were Love and Freedom, inspired by fragrances Mélodie de L’amour and Issara. The idea was to take inspiration from perfume, to create art, and to learn more about poetry.
I don’t remember writing down words that could be regarded as verses or poetry ever since high school, and I must admit that my knowledge about haiku dates back to my school days as well. And yet, I won the 2nd prize!
