Sleight of Fern, a new fragrance by Masque Milano (April 2022) is my choice of perfume for the Scent Semantics word of the month: brilliance!
I must admit that this word, chosen by Portia, turned out to be one of the most complicated words to pair a perfume with for me up to now, and I was thinking about it for days…until 2 samples of new perfumes arrived: Sleight of Fern IV-III turned out to be the one!
Say it with roses!
Let’s speak the language of love, the language of – roses!
I wrote a brief overview of 21 rose fragrances to fall in love with, with mini-reviews. Believe me, I really had a hard time limiting myself to compose a bouquet of 21 roses, I could go on and on – at least that’s what I thought when I started thinking about it, some six months ago. I had to draw the line somewhere because composing this list took a lot of time.
21 rose fragrance…I still haven’t found one rose to rule them all, but that’s great because it keeps me constantly trying out new and different creations. SOTD, SOTN, for all moods and occasions, and during any season in a year. La Reine is always at my side: I’ve never waited for someone to make me a bed of roses. I make it myself and choose my own roses.
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!
