Perfume Portraits – Grand Soir by Maison Francis Kurkdjian

Hello Spring! 🙂 What a delight it is to finally have you with us 🙂

The unexpected treat today was +18 C and blue skies in Ireland. At the end of February it is rather impressive 🙂

#scentoftheday undoubtedly was the majestic balsamic amber – Grand Soir by Maison Francis Kurkdjian. I love its smoothness and warmth…

Perfume Portrait – El Teide by Agua de Tenerife

Every time when spring is around the corner, I start reaching for El Teide – the sweet aquatic and at the same time strong, rich, and deep scent.

Perfume Portraits – ROADS

New Year – new beginning – new themes on the blog! 🙂

Introducing Perfume Portraits – the new heading for 2019! And to kick start it – a little duo from Roads.

Roads is an Irish niche perfume company. I have noticed them stocked at Harvey Nichols store in Dundrum Town Center in Dublin. And luckily enough I managed to snatch these babies at a local TK Maxx store for a fraction of a price.

Roads – Graduate 1954. Parfum, launched in 2014.

Esxence Diary – Waters + Wild Perfumery

Somewhere deep deep in the rural West of Ireland, where the wind is nasty and the people are kind, where the waters are vast and the mist (it may seem so) doesn’t clear away… where it either rains or pours… Somewhere deep in West Cork, on the coast of the Atlantic, there are myriads of tiny fishing villages and mini fjords where you can go whale watching or climb the rocks… And the waters are so blue!

If you ever feel like going on a road trip and getting lost, this is a place – Unionhall, Castletownshend, Glandore, Rinneen…

Olfactive Voyages – Zoologist Perfumes

My journey with Zoologist Perfumes started quite a while ago, I suppose around the time when their Civet won the Art and Olfaction Awards in 2017, and I got slightly deeper into browsing through online forums and perfume related groups on Facebook. The artwork back then fascinated me the most! Those beautifully drawn animals, so elegantly dressed in suits, and robes, and dresses – I’d never seen anything like that before! And one year in, I am finally able to try these beauties on my skin.

Esxence Diary – Sylvaine Delacourte

For the last couple of nights I’ve been falling asleep with Sylvaine Delacourte‘s fragrances from La Collection Muscs. This is a collection of five perfumes, each embracing a different relationship with musk. I find them calming, soothing.. Just perfect for testing and a good night’s rest…

Esxence Diary – Mendittorosa & Talismans

Memories from the Esxence show in Milan are still vibrant and alive, especially when I think of the beautiful Stefania Squeglia and her babies – Mendittorosa and Talismans…

Mendittorosa Odori D’Anima and Talismans Collezione Preziosa are like two sides of the same coin, each telling a completely different story…

When poetry meets perfume, something magical happens..

And what am I

if not a whisper in the wind…

I can only write what sits heavy on the heart.

As soon as it’s done, thoughts wander off…
