Wanting to enclose the essence of a fragrance in the word perfume is like diminishing it of its creative and evocative power.
Creator and evocative. Yes.
A fragrance can create a memory, seal a moment in an infinite and indefinite temporal space. Evocative because when you hear it again you will be able to relive the moment even in other dimensions and spaces.
Big brand these days know it isn’t enough just to have a great product. Consumers want to know that their money is being spent with companies that treat their staff well, make sure their resources are sustainable and look after the environment. Some brands are really leading the way. Fashion retailer ASOS, for example, prides themselves on Fashion With Integrity and actively promotes social change and the creation of more jobs. But which other 5 brands are doing their best for the environment?
As the majority of you, who are following my journey, already know that I have a special bond with the city of Paris. Magic things always happened when I am there.
During the last Paris Fashion Week I was invited to an event from a very renowned showroom for the launch of an exclusive fragrance. During that evening also the other labels of the showroom where also present to show their pieces and, after meeting the CEO of the perfume brand, my curiosity lead me to take a look around.
Art moves the world and as Picasso said, creativity takes courage. Courage to put your soul naked in front of other people, strip yourself of all conventions and bring your being out for what it is.
Art has a huge part in my life, I love being surrounded by artist of every kind and let their creativity flown also in me. I had the chance to visit several atelier and have very deep and beautiful chat with artists.
If there is a quote about scent that I particularly love is from Diane Ackerman and said “ Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains.” and I couldn’t agree more.
Back when he was one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actors earning $40 million in 2009, Nicolas Cage owned a collection of the world’s most eclectic homes including a San Francisco home built in 1914 for Armenian sculptor Haig Patigian – now for sale at $10.95 million.
I have always appreciated the quote “Invest in your hair, is the crown that you never take away” because the care for ourselves is the best investment we can make.
Whether it is a necessary “cure” or a rewarding cuddle, the time we give to us comes back amplified. As you know by now, my passion for niche fragrances is constantly growing, as well as for beauty in general, always niche.

Nothing can be more personal and intimate than your scent.
The fragrance describe yourself before you enter a room and can tell a lot about you without speaking.
If you are following me on Instagram , you already know that I am focusing on niche fragrances labels and boutiques and a few weeks ago I had a beautiful experience with Avery Perfume Gallery that is still up in my Instagram highlights.
There is a place in the world I feel to belong to.
A place where I feel completely myself and is like my soul is returning to full life again.
And is Paris.
Every time is a new adventure and discovering new places and things and last time I stayed there, I had a breathless experience with Le Royal Monceau.
