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…

Esxence Diary – Dusita

When poetry meets perfume, something magical happens..

Parfums Dusita | BonjourPerfume

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…

Dusita - Fleur de Lalita | BonjourPerfume

#Scentoftheday – Fleur de Lalita

A scent of love. So pure, so gentle. Love for spring, for laughter, joy. That kind of love that can only last forever.. Love for this Earth, for its fruits and flowers, for all the living beings. Fleur de Lalita to me is an expression of pure – unconditional – untouched happiness. I can see a young couple getting married.. I can see a first time mother singing a lullaby to her newborn baby… I can see that quiet, peaceful smile, and the eyes that sparkle, full with life… I can see youth in its most precious form… I can see harmony…

Dusita - Erawan | BonjourPerfume

#Scentofthenight – Erawan

Erawan emanated coziness and warmth. It is like a field of wheat on an early morning, somewhere deep in a countryside.. And when you do go for a walk, watch the soft wind ripple through the field, you can also feel the vetiver-kind of freshness and mossy earthiness to it, too… Or maybe, just as well, somewhere deep in the woods, where elephants reside, you can catch a glimpse of their eternity… Erawan speaks to me of home away from home, of melancholic longing for the times and the places that are long gone.. Like I’m that kid still stuck with the 90’s music.. But there is hope, as the night ahead doesn’t seem so dark anymore…

Poetry and perfume - Dusita | BonjourPerfume


Fleur de Lalita and Erawan are the two new creations from the beautiful Pissara Umavijani and they are all available from their website at Parfums Dusita. Check them out, along with other Pissara’s perfumes, they are all one of a kind. Especially her Oudh Infini! This is the real stuff, for true Oud lovers and admirers…

It is a lovely warm, sunny tone to the day here in the deep countryside on the East coast of Ireland… There is a little 8.5 km loop through the bogs, hills, and valleys… Continue reading “Esxence Diary – Rouge Bunny Rouge”
