I am so happy to already have this before its in the shop so I can tell you how great it is and that I am more than sure that this will be a big must have fragrance in the future. everytime I am wearing this – and this is almost every second day – I get a compliment on my fragrance followed by the question what it is that I am wearing. I had to give some to my mom as she already loves it too and I got one of these tiny containers where you can fill in the fragrance – these little spray containers come in very handy when you travel with hand luggage. what I find really funny is that the fragrance transforms in two different ways after wearing it on the skin for a moment – either the fresh, green note lingers around or the warm and almost powdery touch stays more present. in my case it was the fresh green part that lasted and with my mom it was the opposite. another thing that I wanna say is even though this parfum is actually created for women it could also be a more unisex fragrance BUT one has to like a quiet dominant floral scent.
head note: soy bean, lilly of the valley
heart note: orris root, cedarwood
base note: musk, cashmerewood
the fragrance will be exclusively sold at Marionnaud starting March 14, 2015

I got to try this new fragrance by CLINIQUE and I absolutely love the name and the packaging with its white bottle and golden ring around the lid. I also like the scent but I can’t see myself wearing this as I dont really like patchouli but I already have the perfect person in mind to wear it.
It is a modern fragrance touching base with natural ingredients for an elegant and mordern woman.
here you can find the overview of the ingredients:
top notes: violet leaf accord, cistus, sichuan pepper
middle notes: rose water essential, orange flower, patchouli heart
bottom notes: amber gris, musk, benzoin
30 ml / 78 CHF available at Marionnaud
Clara and John Molloy founded MEMO in 2007 after they met eachother on a chairlift in 2005. they have traveled together and experienced many nice things and that was the start of their collection – they discovered eleven scents and created these gorgeous fragrances for their collection. they both see a fragrance or scent as a magical journey and the flacon as the aim of that very trip.
LALIBELA – a mystical rose
the scent of yoyous fervor.
MANOA – city of gold and opoponax
manoa is the house of the sun, a living fruit that offers its opoponax nectar only to the most adventurous.
SHAMS OUD – an oud in the house of sun
The only guide in the house of the sun is the haunting music of oud, its main chords of Tonka bean, its dreams of wood and its promises of glorious love.
LUXOR OUD – oud from the pharaons
the marriage of wood and rose under pharaoh’s whip and sceptre.
QUARTIER LATIN – parisian papers
heart of paris that flutters in a latin fire.
IRISH LEATHER – wind of leather the leather gathers in the wind, the grass warms with the wood – Irish leather gallops off into the horizon.
ITALIAN LEATHER – dolce leather
it teams the simplicity of green tomato leaf with the sophisticated beauty of leather, myrrh and vanilla absolute – a lucid dream.
FRENCH LEATHER – a rose affair
being right, knowing the right moment to undress – musk – kissing.
I got the MEMO discovery voyage – FOUR – that contains 8 x 2ml samples and my favorite one is: FRENCH LEATHER! every sample comes with the list of ingredients and the description of the fragrant journey. read more about MEMO << here

#1 BULGARI Omnia Indian Garnet
#2 NARCISO by NARCISO RODRIGUEZ
#3 BALENCIAGA Florabotanica
#4 PRADA Infusion d’Iris
#5 CLARINS Eau des Jardins
the Omnia Indian Garnet is a rather spicy warm fragrance and I could see myself wearing this for a casual day. the Narciso is a powdery sweet scent for a special night out. the Florabotanica is floral and herbal at the same time and this makes it a great everyday fragrance. the Infusion d’Iris is a perfume for everyday a super simple but herbal scent that I absolutely love. and last but not least the Eau des Jardins a body splash that I could carry in my bag and fresh up during a long day. any suggestions? which one would you recommend?
nothing brand new but rather new. the thomas sabo fragrances CHARM ROSE and CHARM ROSE INTENSE are available since mid of October for 39.90 CHF.
here is what I read about it: “the very first THOMAS SABO CHARM CLUB fragrance is the culmination of all CHARM CLUB collections – CHARM ROSE Eau de Parfum. a fragrance all about Luck, Fashion, Love & Passion. in addition to the pleasurably fresh top note and the sensual base note, the heart of this scent is a dazzling bouquet of rare roses. The 1950s style bottle with its silver cap and small pendant is a real gem, as well as the exquisite CHARM CLUB style packaging with satin lining. The charming extra: you can use the ribbon with the sweet rose pendant perfectly as a hair band.”
I can totally agree with them about the rather fresh top note and the very sensual base note with lots of roses in between. I am totally in love with tha packaging and can only welcome tiny parfum bottles for my bag on the go! a fragrance for the special everyday!
by L’Occitane and it is called EAU DE CADE – visit your next shop and see if that might be something for you!
