I wrote a post on Instagram recently saying that I’m opening my web for niche/indie/artisan perfume brands during the current pandemic in order to help them spread the news about their offers and/or new releases. This is our first #sprayitforward Newsflash: do share, please!
Spring is in the air, although the first day of spring and the March equinox is still a couple of weeks away. Technically, earlier than usual – equinox falls on March 19th this year, for the first time after 1896! I hope you are already enjoying the healing power of first tree blossoms or primulas, various messengers of spring, snowbells, and violets hiding shyly in grass turning fresh green or maybe protruding under the snow.
Hello, early spring! Let’s spritz and chase the winter away!
Eyes closed, I dream about traveling to places near and distant, familiar ones greeting me with a smile, unknown ones calling my name.
I remember it struck me as „interesting“ while I was sniffing and testing literally hundreds of perfumes at Esxence Milano earlier this year. I noticed then and there that quite a few „aquatic“ fragrances were released!
What was it that caught my attention then? On the first sniff – a refined mineral lightness, adding a strangely fresh silvery-pearly-gray feeling to the fragrance, resembling the scent of crushed, dry and empty seashells found somewhere on a shore of Atlantic ocean.
Connectivity and accessibility of the world we live in make it easier to experience small indie, artisan or botanical perfume houses from all over the world! What I’ve always found enjoyable is this instant fragrant travel across the globe, learning about people behind those fragrances, different lands, and cultures. New indie and artisan perfume brands are sprouting all over: not all creations can be considered perfumes, but searching for interesting, creative ones is a challenge!
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!
