Post by Trésor There are a few occasions…let’s face it…many occasions where instead of craving restrained grace or meticulously polished oeuvre I want to smell of everything; all the notes, all the flowers, all of them and right now.

Maremma by Paolo Terenzi for Tiziana Terenzi 2013

Every once and a little while I will be perusing the online shops and come across a potion with a labyrinthine list of notes and my heart goes aflutter, my resolve all but disappears and without warning I have a blind bought bottle of some mystery fragrance with a bazillion notes to positively douse myself in upon it’s arrival. My most recent discovery has been a little potion from the Italian house of Tiziana Terenzi that goes by the name of Maremma, otherwise known as the next stop on my journey to unapologetic fragrant hedonism. Maremma by Paolo Terenzi Photo Stolen Fragrantica The opening sequence of Maremma is a story of luxuriant, utterly unctuous cocoa bathed in the glimmering chartreuse radiance of a rather full-bodied bergamot.

Llegar a ser una nariz de prestigio -persona capaz de 'crear' perfumes- es una de ellas.

Maison Martin Margiela Replica Beach Walk EDT Perfume Review

As a fashion brand, I like (and own some) Maison Martin Margiela and I love the concept of the Replica line, so when I heard about the perfumes, I wanted to try them. But, then I didn’t. I can’t really describe why other than once I read about the inspiration, I felt they came across as cynical, contrived and frankly, unoriginal. I also didn’t like the labels and the “style description” of male or female (this I admit, is me being picky because the fashion brand does have “men’s collection and “women’s collection”). But, most of all, I felt these were themes had already been done. Then I sniffed a few and they were not of the quality that I was expecting from Maison Martin Margiela. Beach Walk opens as ozonic florals with ozonic citrus.

Velvet Flowers by Montale

We know Spain is famous for its pilgrimages…Camino De Santiago in particular. Here at APJ, we are pilgrams of perfume, so therefore I want to tell you about an awesome little perfumerie in San Sebastian, Spain, which just might be worth “pilgrimaging” to when next you are in Europe. The store was first started as an English style barbershop and perfumery in 1908, and was named Casa Benegas. The founder D.Francisco Benegas and his wife Dona Justa Echeverria were extremely entrepreneurial, incorporating the latest trends from both the French and the English. Photo Stolen Benegas Fifty years later the business was taken over by their son who concentrated on the perfumery, introducing international brands and then some cosmetics.

LES DAMES DE GUERLAIN ~ A Special Event at the Guerlain Boutique. The last time I saw Paris was in May of 2006.

LES DAMES DE GUERLAIN ~ A Special Event at the Guerlain Boutique

I have wanted to return to the beautiful Parisians and their ville de lumière ever since. Yesterday I discovered that my wish was to be granted for a few hours at least. Paris had come to San Francisco. Several weeks ago my friend Hilary Randall, Fragrance Specialist; Trainer at Parfums Christian Dior took me over to the Guerlain counter at Neiman Marcus to smell a hidden treasure.

There she introduced me to the very charming and vivacious Guerlain sales associate Irene. Irene explained that a very special client had ordered a bottle of Song d’un Bois d’Ete and by lucky chance Paris had sent all three of the line. During our sampling of the perfumes Hilary told Irene about Scents Memory. The MUNI Metro was not feeling well yesterday when I boarded the train that would take me downtown for my appointment at Guerlain. Under the spectacular gold and ivory rotunda of Neiman’s I found Irene and Mary in a perfume huddle. Mary Edington. Vanityfair. Many would like to hold—and seriously covet—the white aluminum minaudière that Hennessy designed to accompany his Good Girl Gone Bad perfume, from In the Garden of Good and Evil.

Inspired by the slim cigarette cases popular in the Art Deco era, the clutch is adorned with a 24-karat-gold serpent poised in mid-coil, with Swarovski-crystal eyes that seem to flicker and catch the light. The play of white-and-gold represent the struggle between purity and vanity, while the scent—a blend of jasmine, Egyptian narcissus, tuberose, and Virginia cedar—is meant to conjure that “split-second moment of giving in or resisting, which we all have lived,” says Hennessy, convincingly. A fresco of a snake, door, apple, and grapevine decorates the side of the bottle, hinting at one’s fate. The reaction Hennessy hopes to get from the clutch and scent is for a woman to declare, “I want it.” (Indeed.)

Dita Von Teese Launches Third Perfume FleurTeese (2013): Of Lilacs - First Look {New Perfume} {Celebrity Perfume} Burlesque icon Dita Von Teese is launching her third perfume on time for Mother's Day 2013 following up on her debut one Dita von Teese EDP and Rouge.

Dita Von Teese Launches Third Perfume FleurTeese (2013): Of Lilacs - First Look {New Perfume} {Celebrity Perfume}

Continuing to weave the sexy innuendos, it is this time called FleurTeese and is inspired by the scent of purple lilacs... While lilacs have a sexy side to them, they can also be quite innocent a flower a priori. This composition is therefore branding them as more readily boudoir material. The floral eau de toilette features notes of Casablanca Lily, Sambac jasmine flower and purple lilacs. The flacon retains its original shape now in a transparent crystal simulacre and filled with an amethyst potion. Other lilac perfumes of note include En Passant by Frédéric Malle Editions de Parfums, Highland Lilac of Rochester and French Lilac by Pacifica.
