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, andΒ 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…

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…

Olfactive Voyages – Imaginary Authors

Dear fragrance lovers and admirers,

Today I would like to introduce you to a very new cycle – Olfactive Voyages. These will be the journeys more likely related to a certain perfume brand than an actual place on our planet Earth… This topic will venture into uncovered grounds… Everything out of the ordinary will be gathered here… A very new concept to me too, as it is purely out of my comfort zone…

Trying to brainstorm through, hardly with any success… But the time has come and I would like you to meet Imaginary Authors. Continue reading “Olfactive Voyages – Imaginary Authors”
