Snapshot: Arpège and Mom

02 May 2011 Posted by Valerie Vitale in Snapshots

Loving Civet and Rose Poivrée

27 Apr 2011 Posted by Valerie Vitale in Perfume Reviews A-L

I started wearing Rose Poivrée this time last year. It was a very strange time because all roads were leading me toward Jean-Claude Ellena’s fragrances without my knowing it. I spent a very long time choosing a gift–would it be Acqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta…

20 Apr 2011 Posted by Valerie Vitale in Perfume Reviews A-L

< style=”text-align: left;”>Wearing Premier Figuier is incredibly comforting, warming, and special. Figuier gives you the opportunity to smell the greeness of the fig leaf and its unripe fruit AND the dried fruit all at the same time. Its impact is green and creamy in a white sappy way, as if…

Heliotrope

02 Apr 2011 Posted by Valerie Vitale in Thoughts on Single Notes

Upon smelling heliotrope, I immediately see a color, the palest violet and a pastry, a meringue sitting politely on a plate, so light. Yet, as I continue, the meringue turns into marzipan, an almond paste mixed with vanilla, lending a phenolic note-heavy and sweet. Bursting…

Maria Sibylla Merian

01 Apr 2011 Posted by Valerie Vitale in Perfume Events and Interviews

My fascination with perfume has been with me all my life, ever since I can remember. I love being able to smell a note and notice the other notes that are inside of it, it’s like breaking an egg, or uncovering nesting dolls one after…
