Vanille Reve, created by Maurice Roucel for Shalini Parfums, and launched in spring 2021, is the sixth addition to this line of quite elegant perfumes: a vanilla-centered fragrance brightened by spicy anise, enhanced with white florals, and delivering a very finely balanced sweetness. It feels cocooning and embracing, like a late-night (silk) pillow talk…
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. The almost transparent layers of light florals in Fleur Japonais are framing gently the image of a temple, gaining momentum and vibrating in soothing and comforting labdanum-ambery-glowing 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.
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.
I had my first close encounter with UERMI years ago, the concept of olfactory feeling and presentation of different fabrics seemed perfectly understandable to me. Are you familiar with the scent of your favorite pair of jeans? Or a silk blouse? XX Latex is the one that attracted me first: a salty, vynil-musky soft scent cocoon I like to wrap myself into. Doesn’t really each fabric your clothes are made of – smell differently?
UERMI means “wear me” and their fragrance is created by famous perfumers. NU Leather whispers WEAR ME!
