List of my perfume reviews published in Cafleurebon

The inspiration behind Antonio Alessandria’s Rusty Vibes was one specific image, created  by the photographer and essayist Alex C. Musgrave. A photo of flowers, an atmosphere, inspiration plus creative freedom, and Rusty Vibes was born!

This perfume was the fourth bespoke fragrance created for Çafleurebon’s 10th anniversary, and my review was first published there.

There are travels that become not only physical transitions from one place to another, but turn into inner journeys, intimate and spiritual, that weave delicate and invisible webs made of emotions, feelings, and memories of experiences shared that bond a traveler’s soul to the places traveled to – forever.

My Varanesi by Meo Fusciuni review, edited in 2021, was first published in Cafleurebon in 2020.

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)

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!

The Black Knight by Francesca Bianchi greets you with the power of a fully equipped, light, and swift battle horse in a full gallop through a fresh and green field of vetiver: its muscles are moving in a tense way, hoofs picking up and throwing pieces of dry earth in the air behind it. 

And yet, there is hidden tenderness and fragility that makes him feel – so human.

My review of The Black Knight perfume was first published in Cafleurebon, and this is the version I edited in 2021.
