Perfume Portraits – ROADS

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

Roads – Graduate 1954. Parfum, launched in 2014.

Esxence Diary – Kajal Perfumes Paris

This week I am taking my first steps into Arabic / Oriental scents with Kajal Perfumes Paris.

The Arabic world has fascinated me since my early days because it is so different from everything in the mainland Europe. Sand storms, intense heat, camels…where do I even begin?
