Smoke Perfume Oil from New Orleans

Nana Taimour Reader Find

By Nana Taimour in New Products on Wednesday 16 October 2013

Last April I flew to New Orleans for stormy weather, crab boils, morning coffee breaks at the levee, and burlesque nights. While absorbing the magic, food and hospitable people of the South I discovered the magic of essential oils in a keepsake vessel of Smoke Perfume Oil. Smoke is the personal project of Kathleen Currie, […]

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Products on Saturday 29 June 2013

Now you can smell like the very skin of the boys from One Direction. One Moment, the signature, pink, super-girly perfume, was released when the band posted a hand-written note online saying they hoped the fans would enjoy the new fragrance as much as they did. And, of course, to show their love, the boys […]

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Products on Friday 31 May 2013

A friend of mine recently came back from this year’s Maker Faire with a couple of bottles of handmade perfume oil from Blushie, a business based just outside of San Francisco. It’s not just any typical fragrance, but the scent of rain that follows a prolonged period of dry weather. There’s a name for it […]

SPONSORED: Viva la Juicy La Fleur

Lost At E Minor Contributor

By Lost At E Minor in New Products on Monday 15 October 2012

Our friends at Juicy Couture have just launched a new fragrance, Viva la Juicy La Fleur, which is a new interpretation of their original best-selling fragrance, Viva la Juicy, and a sparkling floral bouquet that reveals the softer side of the original. This bright eau de toilette combines a sparkle of mandarin and wild berries with a hedonistic blend of dewy honeysuckle, gardenia petals and jasmine. Signature creamy gourmand notes, reminiscent of the original Viva la Juicy, linger in the background. Sweet, huh? Yes, yes, we agree. [Find out more about Viva la Juicy La Fleur here]

Aromantik: handmade perfume by Sally Woodward-Hawes

Peta Morris Reader Find

By Peta Morris in New Trends on Friday 25 May 2012

Nothing is worse than cheap perfume that smells like carpet in a bar after closing. Aromantik is literally a beautiful breath of fresh air, hand made by perfumer Sally Woodward-Hawes in her workshop in Manly, on Sydney’s northern beaches. With titles such as Strangers in Blood, Landlocked Lovers and Happily Ever Afternoon, her scents are both subtle and intoxicating and packaged with beautiful simplicity, and most importantly, are a great fit in your handbag. My favourite at the moment is her latest edition, Dark Side of the Spoon: it’s sweet, spicy, and a delectable treat for the skin.
