                   THE LUXURY OF OUD
                                   Floris of London
                                  Honey & Leather


   FLORIS LONDON, one of the world's finest niche perfumeries launched two luxurious fragrances for the FLORIS LONDON PRIVATE COLLECTION.
  
   Honey Oud and Leather Oud Eau de Parfum were created EXCLUSIVELY for Harrods of London which debuted on July 30, 2014.

   I know you may be wondering why an Oud fragrances for the summer but Honey Oud and Leather Oud provide a soft and appealing scent to the rich and woody scent of Oud.

  Oudh or better known as "Agarwood" has become the new trend in fragrances but Oudh is an ancient fragrances and has been around for thousands of years.

  Its like pomegranate is so popularly used in skincare and hair care products and yet, this delicious fruit has too been around for thousands of years.

 Apparently, FLORIS LONDON find these two fragrances to be very sacred and felt that Harrods of London would do their bidding good.

 I find this truly an honor for Harrods of London and I am very sure that Honey Oud and Leather Oud will be received well by fans of FLORIS LONDON from around the world.

 In my estimation, it will take some leg work to get your hands on a bottle of Honey Oud or Leather Oud. This will require some networking from family, friends and social network "friends" in the UK to get a bottle or two for you.

 I know a few trusted partners that I could contact to do me the honors or perhaps get me a few samples, at least.

 What I do look forward to with these two fragrances is the precious aromas of Oud with the unique scents of sweet honey and leather.

 Actually, for Honey Oud, FLORIS LONDON refers to it as 'English Honey'. This oriental-woody fragrances is a gourmand accord with hints of vanilla, Oud Oil and sparkles with the scent of rose.

 Fragrance Notes:

 Top Notes: bergamot, English honey
 Heart Notes: Oud, patchouli, rose
 Base Notes: amber, labdanum, Oud, musk, vanilla

 I personally like the smell of leather. It that rich, soft and shiny material that reminds me of luxuries items such as a leather jacket, car seats and shiny shoes. Now having that combined with Oud should be a momentous occasion for me.

 Leather Oud from the fragrance notes provided by FLORIS LONDON, is a deep rooted woody scent with a bright hint of amber. The Oud (Agarwood) used in both scents are certified-sustainable source of oil. Its is a very expensive oil and one of its kind.

  Fragrance Notes:

  Top Notes: bergamot, leather
  Heart Notes: carnation, geranium, Oud, patchouli
  Base Notes: Oud, vetiver, woody, amber

  I find the exclusivity of Honey Oud and Leather Oud sold exclusively at Harrods of London to be quite exciting. What is the story behind this partnership and why? Well, I would like to find out and bring that fragrance story to you.    - Felicia M. Hazzard
  
 P.S. Did I fail to mention the elegant labels on the bottles!

What is Agarwood?
 "Agarwood, also known as oud, oodh or agar, is a dark resinous heartwood that forms in Aquilaria and Gyrinops trees when they become infected with a type of mould.

 Western perfumers may also use Agarwood essential oil under the name "oud" or "oudh".



 Note: Photos of HONEY OUD and LEATHER OUD are courtesy of Google Images. Photo of organic Agarwood courtesy of www.ensaroud.com. Information on the description of What is Agarwood comes from www.wikipedia.en.


  Word To The Wise
  If you are seeking pure and organic Agarwood "Oud". I would suggest going to www.ensaroud.com
It is the BEST and yes it is costly because it is genuine. Samples are available as long as there is still oil. These are LIMITED due to nature. Also, this website offers valuable educational information on Oud.

          FLOWERHEAD EAU DE PARFUM BY BYREDO

                                      Why I Decided To Play The Part

                                                                ACT I




When I was in grade school, I never got a leading role in school plays. I nevered complained because I was considered a good student. When in high school, I decided not to sign up for the drama class because I couldn't see myself pretending to kiss a boy simply to convey "realism" to the student body.

Its wasn't until I started writing full-time that I could now express myself through writing and that pictures coincided with magazines could I now have the leading role in performing through the Art of Perfumery.

One of my favorite perfumeries is Byredo based in Sweden and owned by Mr. Ben Gorham, a genius and one of the most creative perfumers in the equator. He composed FLOWERHEAD Eau de Parfum in collaborations with perfumers Olivia Giacobetti and Jerome Epinette.

It is this fragrance that now has prompted me to get back into the "dress rehearsal" of acting out the part and not just writing about it.

It took Mr. Gorham six years to complete FLOWERHEAD according to the May 2014 issue of the VOGUE Magazine archive edition. The inspiration was taken from Gorham's cousin's wedding in Jaipur, India.

All great scenes in a movie and stage play start with a vision. I immediately thought about all the colorful and vibrate flowers that could compose such an inspiration to come up with a scent and name for such a dedication.
Further into rehearsing my role, I learned from www.byredo.com "in the traditional Indian wedding flower heads are strung together in giant leis, including Jaimala garlands which are exchanged between bride and groom as a token of mutual respect".



Later, I learned that the couple is showered with petals for spiritual protection and a wedding canopy is covered with exotic blooms that would give any ceremony of this magnitude a relenting oasis of unbelievable vibrant hues and a heavily scented atmosphere.

After reading this, I immediately wanted to see what a flower head would look like. I thought of scents of creamy jasmine and multitudes of tuberoses clashing ever so lightly to the tune of cheers and standing ovations.
On www.byredo.com gives a breathtaking photo of a flower head that brings life to FLOWERHEAD Eau de Parfum. It is now that I needed to try on my costume. So, I started searching for Indian flowers, headwreaths that would resemble a traditional flower head along with a beautiful fuschia colored gown to compliment the vast arena of onlookers in wedding attire.


To put on a great performance, one must not rush the particulars that go into making a great performance...a masterpiece.

My philosophy when writing about a perfume is the story that goes behind the scent. What led the perfumer to compose this scent? What is the vision?

The leading characters in this role is the jasmine sambac, tuberose, rose petals that will provide the heart/middle notes in this perfomance. Next, with the headliners you get angelica seeds, sicilian lemon and lingonberry and finally the encore presentation gets rave reviews with amber and suede.

My quest to bring FLOWERHEAD Eau de Parfum to life for me has given me a new opportunity to transform my words with photos of me describing the scent.

Now, it is by choice that I chose, FLOWERHEAD Eau de Parfum to start with my audition.

FRAGRANCE REVIEW


                                                 BLOOMING DREAM
                          The Garden Inspired Perfumery with an Artistic Flair



      I was deeply amazed when I discovered an incredible website by natural perfumer, Suzinn Weiss. To my other amazement, this was the launch of a new perfumery and I was the first contact.  To me with all the vast fragrances offered, I assumed that BLOOMING DREAM perfumery had been established for awhile but when Suzinn replied to my email, I found out that this was the initial launch of BLOOMING DREAM!

   My third amazement with BLOOMING DREAM perfumery is that these garden inspired scents are from a TRUE gardener and a trained fine artist!

  I thought almost 3 years ago, I was really doing something great when I moved into a house that had a lilac garden but for Suzinn her garden has to be an oasis of blissful scents and scenic colorful delights that are to beautiful to behold with the naked eye.

 Thanks to Suzinn who sent me at my request, five garden filled scents that are just at its  peak for this time of the season.

 I was overwhelmed by the authentic replications of these natural fragrances taken from an organic garden in Portland, Oregon so I wanted to learn more about them.


 Suzinn sent me LOVE BIRD, OTTOO, HERB GARDEN, CHAMPA BOOTY and JASZ.


 I allowed myself time to indulge in each of these awe-inspiring scents while taking my walks down the street to vesture in its sensational power of an organic garden in the summer.

 Each scent is very different and I got a wonderful group of samples that ranged from spicy, soft, romantic, oriental and a little citrusy!

 This was the change I needed to continue to explore authentic natural and niche fragrances that makes this industry so fascinating.

 LOVE BIRD EAU DE PARFUM SPRAY- I was taken by the fact this fragrances consists of my two favorite scents and that is amber and patchouli. I love how the blend is perfectly meshed into one wholesome sillage. One scent does not out due the other but yet you get the woody notes with a delicate blend and smoothness of silk. The patchouli is like no other. It stands alone with great majesty.

CHAMPA BOOTY EAU DE PARFUM SPRAY- This is the fragrance that I loved! Its the citrus blend with sandalwood that is so compelling. When I read more about CHAMPA BOOTY it consists of the sweet magnolia blossom, a southern favorite that makes it so charming. This is the PERFECT summer scent!

OTTO EAU DE PARFUM SPRAY- Truly amazing! There is chocolate in this fragrance that mingles with basil, pepper and cardamom. Its like a "meal for the nose". I immediately thought of a lobster dinner with chocolate cake for desert. OTTO is contagious and I see this fragrance being a HUGE seller at the cash register!

JASZ EAU DE PARFUM SPRAY- Guess what? How about Jasmine and Lemon. That is what you get in JASZ.  A sweet delight that comes off like a sublime custard. Its blended with cedarwood, ginger, clove. Its sensual and it whispers the almighty white heady flower in a supreme manner that commands subtle attention.

HERB GARDEN EAU DE PARFUM SPRAY- This fragrance brings the beauty back to the herbal garden with layers upon layers of rare and expensive scents. The most expensive spice in this scent is Saffron. The note is the most costly with vanilla as second in command. Its a rarity to find the oils of Hidcote Pink but Suzinn didn't hesitate and gives HERB GARDEN a mix of scents that are not featured in any other scent that I know about. A true Masterpiece!

Did you know that BLOOMING DREAM perfumery offers a body oil? Well, I do and its called the WARM HEART BODY OIL (Lovers Edition). A silky and smooth body oil that contains FIVE luscious nourishing oils in a sensual blend. $25.00

Notes: olibanum wood, cypress, ginger, rose otto, citrus, myrrh, orange blossom and cacao.

BLOOMING DREAM fragrances comes in a variety of sizes such as 30ml $85.00; 15ml $45.00 and 2ml sample sprays are $8.00 each or your choice of a Sample Set of FIVE 2ml sprays for $35.00

 If you haven't already, contact Suzinn Weiss and introduce yourself. I am sure she would love to hear from you! I am so delighted to have gotten to know Suzinn and welcome her to the world of niche and natural perfumery. Below is contact information for purchase.

DID YOU KNOW?
 Upon request, Suzinn will composed custom perfumes. This is a service that she offers and I know you will be delighted. See Suzinn for more information.

Email by: bloomingdream@comcast.net

 FYI
 I will feature an EXCLUSIVE interview with Suzinn Weiss in a few weeks! I look forward to you reading and sharing it on social media. Thank you!

BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT

                                                  SCENT OF TRIUMPH
                                                The book of courageous ambition
    
  
When French perfumer Danielle Bretancourt steps aboard a luxury ocean liner, leaving her son behind in Poland with his grandmother, she has no idea that her life is about to change forever. The year is 1939, and the declaration of war on the European continent soon threatens her beloved family, scattered across many countries. Traveling through London and Paris into occupied Poland, Danielle searches desperately for her the remains of her family, relying on the strength and support of Jonathan Newell-Grey, a young captain. Finally, she is forced to gather the fragments of her impoverished family and flee to America. There she vows to begin life anew, in 1940s Los Angeles.

There, through determination and talent, she rises high from meager jobs in her quest for success as a perfumer and fashion designer to Hollywood elite. Set between privileged lifestyles and gritty realities, Scent of Triumph is one woman’s story of courage, spirit, and resilience
.


  (Excerpt above written by St. Martin's Griffin Press via www.amazon.com)

  Jan Moran, bestselling author, beauty and lifestyle expert, entrepreneur and innovator will debut with much anticipation, a book  based on historical fiction. SCENT OF TRIUMPH, is about a French perfumer during the 1940's.

 Prior to becoming a perfumer, this woman leaves her family behind to pursue a new life in a different world, but at what cost?

I am very sure Jan will give us that information with great suspense and a theme that we can all learn from when pursuing our own dreams and aspirations.

SCENT OF TRIUMPH is on my list! I personally cannot get enough of historical fiction books, especially when it is about perfumery.

This book is now available for pre-order at www.amazon.com either in hardcover or paperback.

I look forward to speaking with Jan in depth about SCENT OF TRIUMPH and bringing that interview to you in the coming weeks!

    FRAGRANCE REVIEW

             
                                                       PHI-une rose de Kandahar
                                              A global obsession with the rose


            I heard the phrase, "a rose is a rose" years ago but I cannot remember where I heard it. But that doesn't matter because in the perfume industry that phrase is not valid. There are some of the most beautiful roses in fragrances that come from Turkey, Bulgaria, Somalia, Arabia and other countries.

           There have been a few niche fragrances that were blessed enough to incorporate a rare rose oil that is costly and precious into a divine creation.

           The Afghanistan rose, mainly in the region of Nangarhar grows in a dry and rough land but produces a essence that is smooth and sublime.

          I was fortunate to receive a sample of PHI-une rose de Kandahar Eau de Parfum from Jeffrey Dame of Hypoluxe Inc. This would be my first experience with the scent of rose from Afghanistan. I didn't know what to expect, so I thought of all the possibilities. Is it edgy like pink peppercorn, a little smoother but powdery like a carnation or a deep, deep scent of patchouli?

      Andy Tauer, FIFI award winning perfumer has a whimsical way of expressing his creative blends that for most people comes to a pleasant surprise. I too wanted that same surprise with PHI-une rose de Kandahar and I got it.

      This is a extremely smooth and quiet scent. I love how the rose oil eases its way with sublime illusions of a rose field. The more I wear it, the more of a journey it becomes.

     I had this sample for a few months and I wanted to wait for the warm months before I wrote this review. Most people who are not familiar with niche and natural scents wear fragrances having the majority of rose in it, most likely synthetic in the winter months.

    The beauty of niche scents is that it can be worn year around due to its fine ingredients and the time taken to compose the scent with a theory and story behind the scent.

    Its such a shame that politics in the world divide us but when it comes to fragrances, there is no hate-no racism, just a pure love of natural from where ever it originates.

    That is why I have my own slogan, " THE ART OF PERFUMERY transcends cultural barriers"- Felicia M Hazzard

    Its the truth, there is no discrimination again a rose from India versus a rose from Bulgaria. They are both beautiful in their own right. Its here on earth for us all to enjoy equally.

    PHI- une rose de Kandahar can be worn day and night and the delight and airy feeling I get from this scent could easily be a hair perfume. I say this because I sprayed a small amount in my hair and this morning when I awakened, the scent was still there as if I just sprayed it. Truly incredible.

    Andy Tauer Perfumes are so equally meshed with one another. You can use two or three scents together and layer them and its comes out to be one harmonious scent of infusion delight.

    What is PHI? PHI is a rare gem that is rich in natural raw materials so paired with une rose de Kandahar makes it even more rare. Due to the nature of the rose oil, there is a LIMITED AMOUNT and PHI-une rose de Kandahar may not always be available.

    As soon as I wrote this, I checked and PHI-une rose de Kandahar has been SOLD OUT. There are NO samples available as well.

    When will it be available? According to www.tauerperfumes.com not until November 2014!

    This actually doesn't surprise me. Fragrances composed by Andy Tauer have been known to sell out!

    My advise, is to check back with the website and purchase a few bottles, it will be the Holiday Season before you know it.

    PHI-une rose de Kandahar is a beautiful tribute to the Afghanistan rose and culture.

    Fragrance Notes

    Head Notes: apricot, cinnamon, bitter almond, bergamot

    Heart Notes: rare rose oil of Afghanistan, plums, spices, flower petals, rose absolute from Bulgaria, Bourbon geranium, dark tobacco leaves

    Base Notes: Patchouli in the base of Phi, vetiver, vanilla, tonka, musk, amber gris

    FRAGRANCE NEWS & COMMENTARY


           Frederic Malle Revolutionizes Brick & Mortar Perfumery


          Now that Chef Roble' Ali creator of CLIQUE by Roble' technically revolutionizes the most anticipated launch of the branded Fragrance Recipe concept. Frederic Malle' teams up with architectural genius, Steven Holl to reinvent the look of brick and mortar perfumeries with a 21st century appeal that gives a store front, new meaning. This extravagant perfumery debuts to celebrate 14 years in business as an iconic entrepreneur, author and truly a man who brings his unique gift to the fragrance industry.
    Frederic Malle'

       Frederic Malle' founder and owner of Editions de Parfums, a worldwide niche perfumery that has created some of the most fundamental scents by the most talented Master Perfumers.

     Malle is a fan of architecture and he had the dream of presenting and using perfumery with art to created noted fragrances such as Le Parfum De Therese by Master Perfumer, Edmond Roudnitska, Musc Ravageur by Master Perfumer, Maurice Roucel and Carnal Flower by Master Perfumer, Dominique Ropion just to name a few.

    Malle' provides the foundation and enterprise for selected perfumers to be a part of a sort of secret club by elegantly composing scents from a archectural point of view.

    On June 6, 2014 Editions de Parfums was transformed in a twenty-first century oasis. Its a perfumery like I have never seen with circles, curves, wood and serene lighting.
    Steven Holl

    For years, Malle' admired the work of Steven Holl and he did not hesitate to contact him to discuss this new revolutionary look to the brick and mortar shops that we see.

    This new concept debut at Editions de Parfums in New York but this re-design will be coming to more stores in London, Miami, Los Angeles. Who knows even the world!

    I actually like the design and it is a very bold step but with the help of noted architects like Steven Holl, how could you go wrong?

    Editions de Parfums is not only a perfumery, but now it becomes a museum in the world of architectural beauty but also in terms of the likelihood of what new fragrances will arise now that there is a new theme to this perfumery.

    I look forward to seeing what the perfumeries forthcoming in London, Miami and Los Angeles will look like.

    Frederic Malle' literally brings the 'Art of Perfumery' to us in full view.
