Cavatina by Parfums Dusita offers bitter, lush greenness, a vibrant rush of white petals soaked in citruses, a most delicate and utterly beautiful construction of Lilly of the Valley as a centerpiece, and this joyous sparkle amidst a bouquet of jasmine, tuberose and tea rose in its heart – continues to shine until the drydown.
Pure joi de vivre!
Visiteur, a perfume brand founded in 2018 by Janne Rainer Vuorenmaa from Sweden, is now present with three fragrances: Cabaret Nocturne was the first one I reviewed, even before it officially launched.
Janne did take his time, a perfectionist, working on each and every detail until he was ready. And guess what? He was ready amidst the worst lockdowns – in 2020!
Here’s my review of Cabaret Nocturne, a wonderful fragrance created by talented Cecile Zarokian. (First published in Cafleurebon, edited)
An extrait de parfum, Loudo (created by Chris Maurice) is the newest addition to the limited Artist’s Edition of Sarah Baker Perfumes!
The more you listen to Fleur Japonais’s fragrant expression, the more it draws you in – it feels at moments very spiritual, like you’re watching a ritual in an ancient temple.
The incense is never overwhelming or dense, it feels so…light and clean. Nor does it get too smokey or too sweet anytime! The almost transparent layers of light florals are framing gently the image of a temple, gaining momentum and vibrating in soothing and comforting amber-glowing leathery tones much later, in the drydown.
This is the seventh perfume in the collection, and is fascinating again: Fleur Japonais is Maurice Roucel’s interpretation of Sakura for Shalini Parfum.
Silence the Sea is one of the most intriguing fragrances that I’ve ever come across. Christophe Laudamiel, working together with the Strangelove NYC brand owner Elizabeth Gaynes and creative director Helena Christensen weaves a creation that features pure ambergris with an alluring effect, addictive and deeply primal.
This is not a marine-aquatic fragrance, and yet it speaks about oceans and seas in volumes!
While you don’t have to make the obligatory rotation at all, these fragrances might give you a good reason to try something new this Summer!
