I love Jo Malone’s fragrances and her brand Jo Loves has got so many beautiful blends but the newest Ebony & Cassis stole my heart right from the first sniff. The bottle is absolutely gorgeous and is a standout from her regular fragrances. Jo Loves fragrances are usually bright and luminous therefore it was time for a new kind of scent – one that feels rich and deep ideal for those balmy summer evenings and autumn days. One that is sensual and seductive.
Santal Odeyar (also called The Garden of Paradise) from Chopard’s Master of Woods Collection will transport you to mysterious gardens with distinct flower arrangements. The inspiration is the Sandalwood from the Mysore Palace (India) built in the 14th century by Raja Vijayaraja Wodeyar who also founded the dynasty called Odeyar, which ruled the kingdom of Mysore until 1950. One can imagine the first wooden palace, with its sandalwood doors. Master perfumer Alberto Morillas let his imagination take him to early palace gardens for creating this beauty!

Thrilled to share the magic of the Master Perfumer Dominique Ropion – The nose behind some of the world’s most incredible fragrances. Vanagloria – a part of Master’s Collection from Laboratorio Olfattivo is an incense resinous vanilla fragrance for men and women. The fragrance was launched in 2021. Dominic wanted to create a perfume that expresses all the richness of Vanilla and its multiple facets. This creation is built around an LMR Vanilla bean of sublime quality, of which the most subtle tones have been amplified. This Bourbon Vanilla, grown in the heart of the Indian Ocean, is extracted using CO2, a cold extraction technique that reveals the full spectrum of its gourmand, floral, leathery and spicy notes. Its leathery character is reinforced by saffron and its addictiveness by the tonka bean, while the enveloping layers of incense add the texture of a mystical aura.
