Mon Amour ” Paris ” perfume!

28 Mar

 

What comes to your mind when you think of Paris?

Stately Eiffel Tower , magnificent Louvre and beautiful  Arc de Triomphe

with a dreamy voice of Edith Piaf singing ” La Vie En Rose ” in the backround, 

that’s what comes to mind when

I dream of Paris.

A home to a major fashion house Yves Saint Lauren ( YSL )

which in 1983 gave birth to a fragrance

named after his favorite city, ” Paris ” perfume.

Story behind the scent

Here is a declaration of love from Yves Saint Laurent to Paris France.

” Your perfume nails me against a tree. I will not forget it. I will find you again some day.

There are a thousand places in Paris where I can see you again and crush your roses against my heart.

Our roses. The most beautiful.

Maybe you were just an excuse to realize my dream: offering a perfume to Paris. The prestigious Paris which dazzles.

Your blazing and crackling fireworks make the world sparkle.

I have chosen your name for this perfume, because none is more beautiful.

Because I love you. My Paris “- Yves Saint Laurent 
What an appropriately romantic ode to the most romantic city in the world.

Yves Saint Laurent turned to an amazing and talented Nose Sophia Grojsman  to help bring idea to life.

In creative process Sophia was influenced by another fragrance

created by Guerlain house in 1906 called “Après L’ondée “,

it is a fragrance with a scent of a ” creamy violet ” which

she used as a skeleton , and then Sophia added roses.

She knew that she created something great , something what will become

a hit fragrance of the 80’s when 

one night, while working on  ” Paris ” perfume , she finished up at the laboratory and was walking home ,

she noticed a drunk man was following her, so she  quickened her steps

unable to keep up with her , the man shouts 

“Hey lady, I’m not following you; I’m just trying to smell your perfume!”

Ratings and Suggestions 

This fragrance rated Love – ☼ ☼ ☼ ☼

Yves Saint Laurent describes it as ” A modern floral fragrance “,

but I would describe it as a classic floral fragrance.

As I spray it on my skin a pleasant , sweet smell of Mimosa , Ylang-Ylang and powdery scent of Rose

mixed with sensual Amber and Musk

develop into a beautiful,elegant and romantic fragrance.

In your Fragrance wardrobe this would be a light and flirty, floral summer dress.

Eau de toilette concentration is perfect to wear for a shopping date with your girlfriend on the sunny afternoon

or a Sunday brunch with family and friends.

Eau de parfum concentration is great for the evening wear , vanilla note adds depth, mystery and a sexy twist.

This fragrance is appropriate for a sophisticated, elegant and romantic lady with passion for roses.

Classic masterpiece by Yves Saint Laurent ” Paris ” Perfume    

 

Welcome to spring with “Jennifer Aniston” eau de parfum.

3 Mar

It’s spring time and my soul awaits its magic. 

March 3rd and stubborn old winter is about  to expire,

 but with the last snow in the forecast it is still playing hide and seek with colorful and exciting spring.  

Spring time is a time for renewal and rebirth.

In the spring time we seem to feel more inspired, more alive, more in love

and what a perfect time to fall in love with a new perfume.

  Just in time for Spring-Summer fragrance season, Jennifer Aniston debuted her new fragrance in the United States.

It was launched last summer on July 21 2010 at Harrods in London

under the name of 

 ” Lolavie ” which translated from French means  ” Laughing at Life “,

 but at the last-minute was changed to simply

 ” Jennifer Aniston ”  eau de parfum.

Story behind the scent

” I wanted this fragrance to be a personal library of scent memories.

For example, my love of night-blooming Jasmine has lasted a lifetime.

Growing up in california, I distinctly remember the scent of Jasmine on summer evenings.

I consider the scent of the ocean to be one of life’s most uplifting sensual experiences.

No aroma is quite so purifying, humbling and exhilarating.

The combination of the salty air and tropical oils reminds me of long sunny days on the beach – pure happiness. ” – Jennifer Aniston

Falic Fashion Group helped Jennifer bring her idea to live.

This fragrance is supported by campaign created by David Lipman and

was shot in Cabo San Lucas , Mexico by Mario Sorrenti.

Notes

Top – Citrus Grove Accord , Rose Water

Heart – Jasmine , Violet , Amazon Lily

Base – Musk , Sandalwood , Amber

Bottle 

Idea for the bottle came from Jennifer’s love for architecture .

It was designed by David Lipman and has

 ” the flow of a Frank Gahry building combined with the fluidity and organic form of a cresting wave.” was explained by its creator.

Ratings and Suggestions

This fragrance rated Like  – ☼ ☼ ☼

As I spray it on my skin it is definitely and unmistakably a floral scent but in the  fresh, lite and airy kind of way.

Not a lot of citrus , well…. maybe at the very beginning and then, mostly sweet scent of Jasmine and some Violet

with  just a touch of powdery Amber at the end.

Lasting power is very mild so my suggestion is to wear it in your hair or clothes.

It will give you just enough of a nice and a pleasant ” Barely There ” scent to wear during a day.

It is wonderful to wear for lunch with your girlfriends , fundraiser or to work.

This fragrance is appropriate and can be enjoyed by ladies of any age.
