Kyse Perfumes: Gourmand lovers’ heaven

Ready to share my thought and impressions about cutest discovery set ever by indi perfumery brand Kyse created and operated by an absolutely talented american perfumeur Terri Bozzo. Named after desserts, having notes of chocolate, caramel, whipped cream and murshmallows, these perfumes are not simple and childish. Every gourmand lover must try them and even…

Shortly about 4 Comptoir Sud Pacifique samples

Recently got 4 EDT samples by Comptoir Sud Pacifique and still can’t understand if the problem is their concentration or 2 of them are really that weird or I’ve just bought a fake. I planned trying some perfumes by CSP a long time ago. I have had only one sample of Vanille Abricot since my…

1826 by Histoires de Parfums: the last empress’ powder

Wow. So much perfume experience recently! Need to sort this all out. Anyway, let’s go on with my magic box of Histoires de Parfums minis. The next chapter of this book is 1826 a.k.a.

Borneo 1834 enchanted me with…

Runaway by Karen Walker: New Zealand forest for everyone

Intended just to have a small walk around rainy Auckland CBD I ended up in Farmers sniffing new Karen Walker’s Runaway. In my view, it’s the best her perfume so far. Complex, sensual and playful. Warm, spicy, pine and a little but sweet. Long-lasting and making a beautiful sillage. The accord of Runaway is Italian…

Lady Danger by MAC: SOTD for this Valentine’s Day

They are finally here in Auckland! Actually, MAC perfumes were promised to arrive around the beginning of 2017 but I found them only yesterday. 6 bright square bottles. While tasting at the MAC’s corner I found 4 of them the most interesting and noteworthy and those girls from the MAC’s store were so kind to…

Santal Carmin by Atelier Cologne: warm and cosy

In the beginning was Tom Ford with his Santal Blush and I had no idea where I could get at least 1 ml of that divine warming sandalwood fragrance. After trying Atelier Cologne’s Santal Carmin I’ve found the compromise: warm, powdery, cosy, tender and affordable. (I hope this background colour looks carmine enough) Can’t stop comparing…
