Olfactive Voyages – Bloom Perfumery

Many moons ago I stopped by at a wonderful enchanted garden in the centre of London – Bloom Perfumery.

Every single perfume creation carries its secret but not all of them are worthy of your attention, time, and effort. Some talk to you and you get an instant connection. Others might discourage you at first sniff but with time they would become your most loved scents. How to know? How to choose wisely and not make a mistake?

Bloom Perfumery has got all the answers. Trust me, they are the masters of this trade.

At the Bloom Perfumery in Covent Garden, central London, you can literally close your eyes, and allow your nose to guide you through the vast selection of niche fragrances. And I’m sure even the most picky of us will find a scent to suit their palette. The perfumes are organized according to their fragrance families, which is extremely helpful when you’re looking to try a citrusy or a woody scent. For a novice fraghead like me, some brand names wouldn’t mean anything yet… and to be honest, many times I got discouraged to try a scent just because the bottle didn’t appeal to me. Which, I know, is a rather silly excuse.. And so, at Bloom Perfumery, I really loved the fact that I could head straight to a particular shelf without a worry of getting too many surprises at once.

Also, they have a lab there. A real one. And the store assistants wear white coats. Like real doctors. Perfume doctors πŸ™‚ In this place they create magic for you πŸ™‚ …let’s say you’ve got an idea of how your own signature scent should smell like.. Guys at the Bloom Perfumery will make up a formula for you and create your own one-of-a-kind fragrance. They’re that good! Now, one-on-one session will cost you as little as Β£210 for a 50ml eau de parfum. But the point is, the formula stays there only for you. You can always come back for another bottle of your own bespoke scent!

That time when I visited the store, the business was already in sixth gear! Round every corner I was either surprised by something unheard of, or blown away by the rich variety of their perfumes..

I was really intrigued by their Nose Club and Yearly Sample Subscription. For example, for a price of a 100ml bottle (Β£140), you are getting 6x1ml different samples posted to you each month, for a whole year! Unfortunately, they only offer this service to UK addresses… However, the Bloom Perfumery provides worldwide delivery for everything else. So it is worth checking out their website.. πŸ˜‰

Have I mentioned yet that they stock brands like Zoologist, Imaginary Authors, Mendittorosa, .vero.profumo, Pierre Guillaume, Rouge Bunny Rouge, Carner, and many many more?… oh… just typing this blog post already makes me want to go back there again! πŸ™‚ ❀ I loved this place! πŸ™‚

Do pay them a visit when you’re in London. And do check their website online at bloomperfume.co.uk . Trust me, these guys will satisfy any craving for proper juice πŸ˜‰

Prices are correct at the time of writing this post.

I would like to thank the Bloom Perfumery for their friendship and hospitality during my visit. Time spent at your store was truly magical ❀

Weekend with Nejma

With one eclipse behind us and another one on the way, the time in between feels rather tense and sensitive, yet buzzing, even sizzling!

And I am kicking off this February properly – with three new serums from a French niche brand Nejma Collection. Their perfumes are inspired by the Far East and the Oriental Fairy tale about a beautiful, radiant woman called Nejma and her love story. Hence, the name Nejma meaning Lucky Star.

Bonjour Project – Day 20

My dear beautiful people,

Today I would like to tell you a little bit about my new discovery – the perfume brand Dorin. This is a very historical perfume house, creating also powders and creams for Versailles since 1780…

I have discovered it very much by accident at one of Kristiana stores, while sniffing never before seen perfumes.. Their bottles are very attractive and quite different from others.. so are their scents.. πŸ™‚ Continue reading “Bonjour Project – Day 20”

Message In A Bottle

Dear perfume lovers,

Today I am embracing journeying across the World through the sense of smell…

Taking thyme to think | Β©BonjourPerfume

Well, my nose has quietly betrayed me and I can soothe the respiratory system with some thyme tea, that way giving in to realization that perfume actually has the ability to store memories. And with those memories it carries emotions, feelings, everything personal and ever so powerful. Continue reading “Message In A Bottle”
