Bohoboco’s New Stories is about beautiful and fleeting moments in our lives, such as flowers, snow, or winter that bring us joy with their momentary sight but it all passes…With this release, in a sentimental and olfactory way, the brand’s Creative Director – Michal Gilbert Lach says goodbye to the place on earth he had up until now and consciously wishes to welcome the new place to live. And on this journey, he is taking these two new compositions- 𝐉𝐀𝐒𝐌𝐈𝐍𝐄 ● 𝐖𝐇𝐈𝐓𝐄 𝐋𝐄𝐀𝐓𝐇𝐄𝐑 and 𝐄𝐓𝐄𝐑𝐍𝐀𝐋 𝐋𝐈𝐋𝐘 ● 𝐀𝐌𝐁𝐄𝐑 in which he enclosed his past experiences.

Arancia Rossa from Laboratorio Olfattivo is one of the four perfumes from Viaggio in Italia Masters’ Collection by Master Perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena. For this collection, he took a journey to Italy to feel that happiness because he only creates perfumes with joy! He wanted to create fragrances that would sing of Italy, of joie de vivre, cheerfulness, and hope.
Scent Space is essentially control over the projection and intensity of a fragrance. That means you can now decide if you want a certain fragrance to have a closed bubble or stay in your personal space or have a decent projection with an expressive scent. You may even choose your scent to fill the room with bold fragrance. Every fragrance from Commodity comes in three different scent spaces which I think is really cool and robust. It really distinguishes this contemporary fragrance house from any other brand in the industry. Fragrances in the Personal Scent space will sit close to the skin. Fragrances in the Expressive scent space are balanced in terms of projection and longevity while fragrances from the Bold scent space will make a statement.

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.
Initio Parfums Prives released its brand new fragrance Oud for Happiness recently and I am so thrilled to get my hands on this gorgeous bottle. This fragrance is an addition to the Black Gold Project after Oud for Greatness which is another gorgeous creation from the brand. Love the sacred geometry and gold accents on the black bottle! Oud for Happiness is a portal to modernity. It amplifies the benefits of oud through a puff of freshly-cut narcotic grass, energizing and uninhibited. The composition provides an addictive means of relaxation that stimulates self-confidence.
Our lifestyle and shopping habits have changed with a year-long lockdown in the pandemic. Most of us (myself included) do not want to leave the comfort of our home and want everything to be delivered to our doorstep. While most of the things are possible through online shopping, the experience to try fragrances before buying is not. Though actual stores and fragrance boutiques are now reopening, the consumers are still opting for the convenience and safety of shopping from the comfort of their own homes. Whilst shopping habits are changing, the desire for a luxury shopping experience hasn’t and Parfum Muse will offer this to their customers through a seamless online user experience and tremendous added value. Not just this, the fragrances arrive in a beautiful gift-wrapped parcel – Now that’s a personal shopping experience!
A few months ago, I sampled all the fragrances from London’s Sustainable & Unconventional Fragrance House – Bel Rebel. While every fragrance was unique, the one that stood out to my nose the most was Bubblegum! The scent was the exact representation of bubblegum that I used to love in my teens. It was nostalgic and it made its mark on my mind! Bel Rebel released its sixth scent this April again a rebellious, deep, and mysterious scent but with unexpected notes – notes that one may not imagine together!
