Jacques Fath Perfumes

Rebirth of a legend

Vers Le Sud by BL'eauOG
 Like a Phoenix, Jacques Fath perfumes are alive again. The famous fashion house was at the peak of its glory during the life of Jacques Fath himself, but with time, it was forgotten and turned to dust. Yet again, it is re-born, restored with 4 perfumes in the line made by the famous Cécile Zarokian. She is very well known for her creations for MDCI, Jovoy and Puredistance. Famous name, famous perfumer and nice packaging, that should be a recipe for success, no?

New photo, new inspiration, new perfume.

Still Life in Rio by BL'eauOG

It became yearly habit to create and to find spots for fragrant, olfactory portraits. Céline Varleure, creator of the brand constantly seeks spots in the world that might inspire her. She is also a world-trotter, seen a lot and visited many corners in the world. Rio de Janeiro, the city of Samba and Caipirinha was her latest inspiration. The result is luminous, solar, gentle and creamy perfume.

Curium - One Of Those (NuBe)

This perfume is one of those... 

One of Those packaging by Francesca Gotti, Italian artist

This Exscence perfume fair was marked by Italians who unpretentiously create very good stuff, year by year. Like Luca Turin said, this was the year of Italians. One of Those is the new-old brand. Italian house from Parma, NuBe became One of Those. Perfumes that were inspired by the Periodic Table of Elements became the story of universal traces of cosmic memory. This is important transformation for the brand.

La Parfumerie Moderne review

The modern perfumery 

La Parfumerie Moderne by BL'eauOG
La Parfumerie Moderne is the reminiscence of one boy's memories. A line of four perfumes where neither one has upper hand, but each one of them captivates with the beauty and splendor of the perfume compositions. Each one of them belongs to separate olfactive composition with uniqueness and seductive core. That is why I felt in love with them.

Adjatay The Different Company

Narcotic and sweet leather scent

Adjatay The Different Company

Collection Juste Chic has got richer for one perfume - Adjatay. It is the latest release by The Different Company and it was launched in Milan, at Esxence perfume fair. It belongs to the floral-leather olfactory family with sensual and elegant sillage.

I love The Different Company and their perfumes because in some of them I found purity of scent and raw materials. This is the first time that I am smelling the composition of tuberose and leather and that makes it narcotic. Adjatay is the name from Africa and it is a royal name. The inspiration describes this perfume very well:

"I brought this tuberose flower back from Grasse and forgot her in an unpretentious black leather bag. She refused to give in and for days her stubborn warmth strive to bring the leathery silky animal notes of my worn out bag back to life."  The perfumer, Alexandra Monet did a perfect job because, first of all, it is highly original and you can't find tuberose and leather easily, and secondly, it is carnal and sensual. Beside leather and tuberose, you can find styrax, castoreum and papyrus tones. 

Not one of the raw materials have the upper hand. It is very interesting perfume blend between the strong notes. Dark, raw, smoky leather is mixed with sweet tuberose. Those two materials make it sexy, sensual, narcotic.. Beautiful and original creation.

Costarela by Carner Barcelona

Beach, sand, you & me... 

Carner Barcelona Costarela
At the latest Esxence in Milan, Catalunian Spanish brand, Carner Barcelona, released Costarela. That is the newest edition to the existing line of Carner perfumes. 

I was lucky enough to shortly meet Joaquim Carner, the brother of the brand owner and incredible manager, Mister Francisco Gratacos who is already known to a larger public. Carner Barcelona continues to create in its own way, following the tradition and the philosophy of the brand. Carner is all about Spanish beauty and flirtatious atmosphere. Every single fragrance is an invitation to the special mood of elegance.

The core of Costarela is slightly announced with its own name. It is all about Costa Brava and the beach mood. I was, few years ago, in Costa Brava and around Barcelona. I had fabulous time, especially during the evening when I was on the beach with my friends and guitar was playing. Costarela smells of warm sand, bronzed skin, and golden dust. It also has refreshing marine notes that are transparent and pale. 

Carner created nice, luminous refreshing perfume for even more beautiful evening strolls by the sea.

Iris Nazarena Aedes de Venustas

The smoothness of iris and suede leather... 

Aedes de Venustas Iris Nazarena
Nicely ironed shirts, beautiful sartorial suits, polished shoes, leather briefcases and the noise in the Madison Avenue. Beautiful women and men are going to work while the smell of suede leather and powdery iris lingers in the air. Aedes de Venustas is a perfume that I imagine on the Madison Avenue or in the offices of the Wall Street. So elegant, so smooth and so beautiful perfume.
