James Heeley Cardinal

Anno domini incenso XXV

James Heeley Cardinal
 Do you ever wonder what scent might be mythical? Which one could be sacred, divine, the one not coming from the Earth? Before Sorbonne, I was on political science and I was very active within the cathedra of secularism – I wanted to write an article on the spirituality of scents. Incense comes as a natural response, but is the monoscent of incense only connection between the two kingdoms? James Heeley Cardinal is something close to that. Could that perfume be the link between the two?

Moresque Parfums

Italian perfumes with Arabic twist

Moresque Parfums - perfume brand of Italo-Arabic heritage

 I was walking in Parisian Marais two-three weeks ago and it was very sunny afternoon. My nose told me to go to my second home in that city, to Sens Unique in rue du Roi de Sicile and the nose told me good – I found something new inside and the owner, Renata Faizutdinova immediately told – “Juraj, I have something new for you and you will like it.” She was completely right and voilà, I found one new perfume brand I felt in love instantly on the first sniff.

Ambassade Jovoy & Jus Interdit

Perfume heaven with perfume extraits

Jovoy Parfumeur Jus Interdit - one of the three new perfume extracts

Being based in Paris has many advantages and one of them is the access to mostly everything Paris has to offer. One of the most beautiful offerings is hidden in the Rue Castiglione where is situated the Embassy of Perfumes – Jovoy. I had a chance to try the newest Just Interdit which enchanted me on the first smell. Beautiful perfume with oriental theme, patchouli, oud and benzoin as the principal players. On the other side, Jovoy, as the very special place, has particular ambience where the one can smell fragrances.

Do you remember your first kiss?

Do you remember your First Kiss? Do you know what is crucial about it? Is it the sight, sound, the things we see, the smell....?

When you see someone you like, the contribution of nose is more than noticing a perfume (or a cologne). It is able to pick up a natural chemical signals known as pheromones. These can not only evade physical or genetical informations of their source, but are able to activate a physiological or behavioral response in recipient. In one study, a group ...of women at different points of their ovulation cycles wore the same T-shirts for three nights. After the male volunteers were randomly assigned to smell either the worn T-shirts or unworn one, saliva samples showed increased testosterone in those who smelled the worn T-shirts by the ovulating woman. Such a kick of testosterone may give a man a nudge to pursue a woman he may not otherwise noticed. A women’s nose is particularly tuned to MHC molecules which are used to fight diseases. In this case, opposites attract. When a study asked women to smell T-shirt worn by different men, they proffered the odors of those whose MHC molecules are different from theirs. For science, that makes sense; genes that result in a greater variety of immunities may give offspring a greater survival advantage.

So, if you ever wondered on what depends the first kiss, it depends on the smell of breath of your partner and the taste of their mouth! :)

Istanbul – the city always in the middle between Europe and Asia. Its mentality is always between European and Asian part. The latter belongs to the left or European bank of Istanbul where the one can find skyscrapers, business zone and luxury stores while the former part or the right bank of Bosporus represents Istanbul as it once was – small and privet-owned shops with the real Turkish coffee, traditional food and more conservative daily life. Upon this images, you can discover Nishane, the first ever Turkish niche perfume brand offering good quality oils, but above all, European scents with Turkish twist. That is their magic.

Welcome to the initiation!
Initio Parfums Privés
Very rarely a perfume brand produces so electrified reaction because of its mystery, good concept and above all, with the quality of juice inside of bottle. While I had the initiation of Initio perfumes, I had tingles on my skin because I found several diamonds with unique smell. This is a new perfume brand so let me take you throughout their world because it is worth of attention.

Evody Parfums - D'Âme de Pique

Coup de foudre!

Evody Collection d'Ailleurs in Sens Unique

I’ve never written before about one perfume brand that is still within the margins of the niche world and it is called Evody. They keep their real niche profile still, without pompous commercials and marketing. Can something be bad if it is founded by two women?

I have found my precious nectar within the line of Evody perfumes and it is called D’Âme de Pique that belongs to the Collection d’Ailleurs. It is a collection composed of 4 perfumes dedicated to distant places of Earth, beauty of nature and cultural diversity. I found it as the most interesting Evody’s perfume to me personally.

MDCI Cio Cio San - the newest perfume review

The fragile beauty of spiritualism.
Cio Cio San at Sens Unique Paris
There are some periods of a year when there is a rush of new perfumes and the one needs to distinguish what could be groundbreaking. I’ve been walking today around Paris due to the changing weather all the time but I had a goal in my mind and that was to walk off to the Sens Unique and to smell the newest MDCI perfume called Cio Cio San. My quest was not in vain because I found beautiful soft scent inside the bottle that transmits gorgeous floral bouquet, some fruits and especially, beautiful peony. I started to realize that Mister Claude Marchal actually likes all things beautiful.
