Collection Croisière - new and different Pierre Guillaume

The collection dedicated to personal inspiration and voyages, but especially
highlighted with unusual and different rwa materials

Collection Croisière
 As I have been writing before, I am a fan of Pierre Guillaume and his work. He is most famous for his Parfumerie Générale line of perfumes because it was strange in debut but later, acclaimed by the perfume critics. Although his creations were not intended for Paris, I can say that he is one very well acclaimed perfumer and appreciated among circles in biggest French city. This time, he has created completely new line, a line composed of 8 perfumes of which, 4 are available now and 4 will be launched one by one. Welcome the new collection – Collection Croisière. Perfumes inspired by long travels whether by boat, by foot or by airplane. Creations that are centered on new molecules and the theme are aquatic-green tones.

AlexSimone; a story of the childhood memories

Something different
In the preparations of the Exscence Milano, I thought it would be nice to see and experience different point of view of the world of perfumes. This “perfumes” are not for your skin, but the ones that can fulfill your life 24/7 with their philosophy, beauty, simplicity and above all, their idea. The scents of today are the scents not from Paris nor Grasse nor New York, but from Monaco inspired by Grasse’s surroundings and the childhood of one boy who is today a man. Experience the scents for ambiance of great quality in forms of candles, linen sprays, air diffusors and ambiance perfumes.

MDCI Parfums - the brilliance of the niche industry

Marchal Dessins Créations Indépendantes
MDCI Parfums by BL'eauOG

Rarely you can meet a person that combines passion, drive for work and charisma. All of that, I have found in an exceptional man behind the MDCI Parfums, Monsieur Claude Marchal who is the creative mind of the MDCI Parfums. He is not a perfumer but only the founder and inspiration for all the scents you can smell but also, for everything you can see by your eyes, it is also the work of his hands. When I say that, I especially mean on bottles because they are his proud. That was probably the most difficult thing to make in a desired form. Now, after more than a decade, Monsieur Marchal established his perfumes as the haute-gamme, the top of the perfume making with perfumer's abilities. I am personally a big fan of his work and his perfumes, especially of Invasion Barbare which I would like to wear for a lifetime. Monsieur Claude also gained a lot of respect on international level and among the perfume writers, especially on blogs like myself. Respect is not something you can demand for, but something that you earn by your hard work. Therefore, I am presenting you the extracts  of our conversation where you can find something more about the MDCI.

Chanel Bel Respiro

Bel Respiro - limitless spirit of natural beauty and world of Coco Chanel

Chanel Bel Respiro, Les Exclusifs de Chanel
 A perfume is inspired by the house which Gabrielle bought in Parisian suburb area, and it's decorated in her two favorite colors - beige and black. Bel Respiro is a beautiful perfume that is surrounded by opulent green and earthy notes, a perfume that is full of life and free spirit. It can be considered as the spirit of Coco at the time because she was a woman of free spirit, like her contemporaries. Bel Respiro is about her life, liberty, green notes and fresh air.

Le Galion Sortilège

Embark to the beauty of the Belle Epoque
Le Galion Sortilège bottle
From all of the line that Le Galion has, I have chosen Sortilège, personally, as the most emblematic perfume this perfume house has in its possession. There are several reasons to think so; first of all, Sortilège is a perfume that evokes the beauty and splendour of the Belle Epoque in Paris, when the "golden age" of art had the peak. Secondly, Sortilège truly is a perfume of the Belle Epoque because it was created by Paul Vacher at the time. Thirdly, you will not find similar scent in 2015, with such aldéhydes and composition. I will separate this story in three parts. First, I will focus on history told by Elisabeth de Feydeau, the lady who reveals the history of the brand. In order to avoid to have narrative like her in my own words, which I found stupid, I will quote her. Secondly, you will get to know Belle Epoque and finally, I will discover Sortilège.

 Jan E. Vos and Antoine Lie are a good couple because the two last releases from the collaboration of the two were beautiful perfumes with extraordinary raw materials. The new perfume, White, as the name suggests is about transparence, powdery notes and golden sillage bathed in golden sunlight.

LM Parfums Cicatrices

The new hinoki tree is in the town, girls and boys!
Laurent Mazzone, the founder of the LM Parfms

It has become a common politics that Laurent Mazzone releases new perfume with every season and this one is a spring-break miracle from the LM perfume workshop. Cicatrices is a perfume based on the two ingredients mainly and it is the most different LM perfume so far, yet so similar with already known LM scent signature inside.

Les Eaux de Caron

What more can you wish for than the simplicity and elegance?
Caron's perfumes
 Today, I will be talking about Les Eaux de Caron, perfumes for which I think that are beyond galant and beyond sophistication - those are perfumes that are a symbol of one of Aristotel's virtues and that is the perfect raison d'être. They are very nice balanced, enough to give the opulence and sophistication at the same time. Caron's perfumery is more sophisticated and more straightforward in terms of clarity of an idea. The two right here are not as opulent as French tradition in general - that is rich and opulent and that you need to wait few hours for the revelation of the idea of a perfume. Les Eaux are very beautiful and simple perfumes breathing with Caron's elegance.

Frédéric Malle Spring

Two spring beauties: En Passant and Angéliques Sous la Pluie
Frédéric Malle springtime by BL'eauOG

As the spring approaches sooner and sooner, I was thinking about some gentle and floral scents that could announce spring. I found two, at the moment, within the house of Frédéric Malle. The two are completely different yet, they share their springtime beauty in common, those are En Passant and Angéliques Sous la Pluie. Two beautiful floral scents.  

Chanel Misia

The everlasting heritage of Gabrielle Coco Chanel
Exclusifs de Chanel - Misia

A little bit of ionine, a bit of leather, lots of iris, hint of May rose, superb perfumer and voilà - the superstar is born! This is a new perfume of Chanel's Exclusifs line made by Olivier Polge, one of the most talented perfumers that we now today. Misia is a delightful perfume for those who love the smell of velvet, theatre, powder, make up and rouge for lips. I can say this is a very beautiful and opulent perfume that is completely different than any other Chanel so far but, at the same time, it is very trendy and contemporary with elements Inside.
