  1. Un pays de sauvages

    Taking to the air, we scent the gardens of Sicily ... cedrat and mandarin,
    and wild flowers that strew the rocky slopes.

    And then, in a wing beat, we're over the high peaks and into the mountains
    where wild grown lavender and herbs are found,
    and we breathe in the rough bark moss
    and soft rose de mai, narcisse.


    Where does this warm base come from? so deep and so lightly floral?
    nobody knows. Only, it's a land of goats, ...

  2. Jones Beach Perfume by Bond No. 9 Review.

    Jones Beach is the latest Long Island-based destination to be converted into a perfume by Bond No. 9.

    Laurice Rahmé could not forget Jones Beach’s wide stretches of sand or its 2-mile boardwalk. So 43 years after her first trip, she bottled the Nassau beach into its own scent. Sand, surf, sunshine. Bare skin and bare feet. Carefree weekends. concerts by the water. Real people, real moments, real New York. Jones Beach is a retro-chic fragrance with a fresh orange flower note. Rahmé ...

  4. Femme

    Not exactly Egghead Weds Hourglass but not far from it; Peaches and Cream Floral meets Cumin Leather Chypre. The contrast is extreme, the balance precarious and perfect. This was only the third perfume by Roudnitska and already a first masterpiece.

    Roudnitska wasn't content with turning out mere pretty perfume, he liked to use odd themes in his work, and in Femme the stone he threw into the pool was cumin.

    Femme is a lactonic, pink fruity floral with a dark bitter ...

  5. Who gets it all when YOU die?

    I am 56 years old. I began "collecting" fragrances in the late 1970's. I saved the empty bottles, amassing a huge inventory of beautiful vessels (at one time, over 500 bottles), for display purposes, after the liquid was long gone. I blew money on various new scents in between, all those years of collecting, whenever I had the opportunity to find them, and funds allowed such luxury. This, was long before internet shopping so by 1991 I had so many empty (and newly purchased) bottles ...
