                                        Pissara Umavijani
                             The Perfumer Behind The Scent
                                       EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW


   When I learned about Dusita Parfums, it already had taken social media by storm.

    I had to find out more about why Dusita Parfums was receiving rave reviews!

    Now I know why. It all started with the creator (self-taught)  perfumer and owner of Dusita Parfums, Pissara Umavijani.

   I contacted her and explained who I was and that I really wanted to get to know more about herself and Dusita Parfums.

 Within a few weeks, I received a package. It was not just an ordinary package.It a was a beautiful orchestration of a perfume layout.

I could smell each scent intertwine with the others coming from the outer package. It was just a matter of time before I was absorb by the oasis of floral, earthy tones, sweet and powdery sensations!

Pissara is a creative master in more ways than just perfumery. She is an actress and for me having more than one talent in the world of the arts is extremely exciting to me.

Do you know of any actors who compose their own perfume collection? Using pure ingredients and extraits. I do not. 

So without further adieu , here is Pissara's story on a fragrant journey!


                                   ~THE INTERVIEW~

F.H. Pissara, how did you get into perfumery?

My passion for smelling began as a child. I grew up in Bangkok, Thailand in a beautiful house with a big tropical garden. I was always exploring the garden and I loved smelling the soil, the grass after it rained and all the exotic flowers like lotus blossom, frangipani , jasmine, Pandan leaves, and Champaca flowers. It felt so peaceful in that garden and nature’s fragrances gave me a wonderful sense of tranquility.

The smells of that house and garden have remained close to my heart as powerful childhood memories. My father, who was a poet, collected old books, every time I smell the old books, I think of him.


Then, as I traveled, I started to collect old bottles of perfumes because I am fascinated by the beauty of materials and the arts of blending. I began to read more and more about the perfume houses in the past. (see attached file for the perfume library in Bangkok). I started building my own little palette at home (ordering materials everywhere through websites). I would order all the books, natural perfumery, modern perfumery, niche perfume books. At that time, I just do it with my pure passion

F.H. How did you come to composing your first perfume?

One day, I started to blend it. My first creation was ISSARA. I developed my first perfume to conjure a memory I had of place with lush green rice fields near the sea and of a gentle breeze blowing through trees. It has a pine tree scent blended with fresh smelling Coumarin and mellow earthy fragrances. I associate it with a wonderful feeling of freedom.

F.H. Pissara, you are a self-taught perfumer! What inspired you?

I start everything with respect and appreciation. I read about the greatest perfume creations and find out how they structure it. 

Later, I have fun sourcing the materials, when I collect raw materials, I would spend time with them, live with them for days, like getting to know a friend....I want to know every aspect of it. Having  quality  raw  materials is like having a beautiful color palette. 

For creating a composition, I would translate the inspiration for each scent into smaller aspect. I always have this hypothesis in mind that how the state of mind can be translated into the smells. When I work, it’s like a meditation because I am totally in the flow of the new discovery. and I also learn to discover many new aspects. I believe that creativity is endless.


F.H. How would you describe your brand and its concept?

My brand and its concept: The meaning of the name “Dusita” means “paradise” and “happiness” in Bali. Happiness differs from person to person and each person has a different definition of it. We feel people who wear a Dusita will enjoy a sense of well being and happiness that is entirely individual and personal.  We create French perfumes with oriental inspiration. We bring an eclectic mix of cultural philosophies – the best from different parts of the world. We are inspired by people who travel and know the world and who in turn are inspired by the cultures they have come to know. We are not afraid to be different. 



F.H. Why was Paris so important to establish a perfume collection?

Paris is the ultimate destination of fine perfumery. This is where the arts of perfumery have begun.  It is the hardest market to enter and the true challenge for the brand to grow. Throughout the time, the truth is, it’s never easy for anyone to start the brand here but I personally believe that, with the quality product and strong teamwork, a brand can flourish anywhere.


I had composed some perfumes four years ago, I took my creations with me and presented to Monsieur Francois Hénin and he encouraged me to start a brand.

I remember that moment very well, I was walking alone, passing Place Vendôme and I asked myself, how many times in life did we have the opportunity to follow our passion, and turn it into the reality. Therefore, I was determined to work hard for this project , although I did not know then what it takes to create a brand. I was fortunate to meet people with a variety of very helpful expertise... some of whom later became my partners. Dusita was founded as a French perfume house in 2014, 3 years after I had started the project.

F.H. Pissara, in just a few words. Would you describe your perfume collection?

I want people to choose for themselves perfumes which represent who they are. They could choose the unisex appeal of Issara to be independent, strong and free. If they search for femininity, they can choose Mélodie de l’amour. A more artistic, confident, and rebellious person should wear Oudh Infini

For me, the appealing idea of the ultimate happiness is found in freedom of the mind, and spirit. Therefore, the perfume that I wear the most is Issara. It is the first fragrance that I created, with a fresh pine-tree note, blended with oak moss. It comes from a live memory of wandering in green forests in a tropical country like Thailand, enjoying a fresh wind blowing in your face, feeling time standing still, banishing all worries and outside thoughts. This perfume embodies that experience of freedom.

F.H. Lastly. Pissara. I read that you are a actress! When did you start acting and what movies have you been in? 

Yes, I have been in several movies (they were in Thailand) since I was 19 years old. They are "Immortal Enemies", "Shakespeare Must Die" and  independent films.

F.H. Pissara, Thank You so much for taking the time out to speak with me! Your journey into perfumery has been remarkable and I truly enjoyed it.

Thank you so much for your kind comment. I am so happy that you like the perfumes. Please take time to live with them :).

               A Brand New Era in Natural Perfumery with IPF


   Greetings!
      It has been a few months since I have written a review or article. I apologize for that. Since doing research and writing a book on fragrance for a VERY popular scent that has taken much of my time. Also being a wife and mother of two very active children is a blessing but it also drains my energy.

    Lastly, if you haven't heard. I have been appointed US Executive Ambassador for The International Perfume Foundation (IPF). This is wonderful and very important extension to being a publisher for the fragrance industry.

  The International Perfume Foundation was founded over 20 years ago by the talented and very passionate Ms. Creezy Courtoy who is also the Chairman. Mostly recently, I have had meetings with Creezy and Mr. Terry Johnson who is the Vice-Chairman of The International Perfume Foundation and he is President of Horticultural Marketing Resources. These discussions are exciting and very important to our advocacy for the natural perfume industry in a NEW ERA!

We feel it is necessary to wear natural perfumes for health reasons and we find that the natural perfume industry is growing due to consumers wanting more benefits for their money.

Its great to spend time and a certain amount of money having gorgeous packaging.But if the bulk of money is spent on advertising for television, radio and magazine ads. Then what  money s left to produce a quality fragrance. It should be a fragrance that is GOOD FOR THE EARTH AND LITERALLY GOOD FOR THE PERSON WEARING IT.

I know everyone has a preference. There are people for whatever reason do not prefer a 100% all natural perfume. That is okay. We will not take away your freedom and respect your position.

IPF are advocates only for natural perfumers and organizations who support products that are pure and natural.

Are you a natural perfumer? Are you an organization that promotes and purchase natural perfumes for your retail store or boutique?

If this is YOU, then you should join the International Perfume Foundation and be a part of a growing movement to promote natural perfumery and help this market grow so that we can help one another.

Do you grow flowers? Do you grow raw material/ingredients? We need you. Please join us.

Are you in the media? Do own a magazine outlet, television station or a radio station? Are you a blogger/writer who loves natural products and want to be behind a growing movement?

We need all of YOU!!!

Reach out to us and let us know that you are interested. We would LOVE to hear from you!

My job is to engage with natural perfumers and organizations worldwide who are involved in the development of natural perfumery. Yes my title says US Executive Ambassador because I live in the US but it does not LIMIT from knowing who you are!

There is a very IMPORTANT cause and work we are doing for the continuing development of natural perfumers. We have formed the  INTERNATIONAL  PERFUME FOUNDATION 
 NATURAL PERFUMERY CERTIFICATION program.

What is this? This is for natural perfumers to become certified with IPF and we STAND behind you in terms of you being our selection of natural perfumers for anyone seeking your services and the IPF recommending you as our BEST and DEDICATED natural perfumer.

 This is just a few of the GREAT benefits!

We are working out all of the details for this very important certification program.

 You will be notified of the OFFICIAL launch date.

Are you new to natural perfumery? Do you want to learn more about this market? First, WELCOME and secondly feel free to contact me if you have questions. If I don't personally have the answer, I will look into getting it for you.

My passion is perfume and my passion increases especially when it is good for YOU AND ME!!

Oh by the way look forward to my latest edition in Fragrance Belles-Lettres Magazine with reviews and articles coming soon!

                                                         Joanna Coles
                               To Receive Inaugural Fragrance Award

Joanna Coles

   This year The Fragrance Foundation Awards known for celebrating the global fragrance industry and the best in creative achievements in the world of perfumery will include a new category,

   That category is called the "GameChanger" Award and there is already an honoree to receive it. 

   The inaugural GameChanger Award according to The Fragrance Foundation was "created to honor an individual or organization that exemplifies creativity and business innovation". 

   You ask, "What does this have to do with fragrance"? Well as you may know, The Fragrance Foundation and The Fragrance Foundation Awards honor fragrance companies large and small (indie category). Plus, there are categories honored for "Editorial Excellence" regarding  written articles, features and online submissions. There is another category honored as "Media Campaign Of The Year" for men and women fragrances showcased in print, online and visual. 

 The  GameChanger Award to me features the individual behind the scenes that delegates and leads such excellence in editorial excellence and media campaigns.

 This year, The Fragrance Foundation Awards will honor, Joanna Coles who is the Editor-in-Chief of Cosmopolitan and Editorial Director of Seventeen magazines.

 Joanna Coles empowers young women and inspires the next generation of leaders stated, Elizabeth Musmanno, president of The Fragrance Foundation.

There are many more reasons why Ms. Coles will receive this award but there are just simply too many to mention.

The Fragrance Foundation Awards will be held on June 7, 2016 at the Lincoln Center in the Alice Tully Hall and hosted again this year by actor, Mr. Alec Baldwin. 

Congratulations to Joanna Coles for being the first to received such a prestigious and well-though out category. It helps keep the momentum in the ever changing fragrance industry to new highs!

      La Collection Privee Christian Dior Parfum
                     by Elisabeth de Feydeau 


    The world of La Collection Privee by Christian Dior is explored in a book to be launched by world-renowned book publisher, Assouline this month.

       Elisabeth de Feydeau is a highly respected French historian writer and perfume expert who is the author of La Collection Privee Christian Dior Parfum. It examines in a beautifully 130 illustrated tale of the collection created by Master Perfumer and house perfumer for Dior, Francois Demachy. 

      La Collection Privee Christian Dior Parfums is a rare collection of sixteen scents plus four precious Elixirs composed by Mr. Demachy that offer the finest rare and bold ingredients that  has taken the perfume industry by storm!

     Mr. Demachy pays tribute to tradition in perfumery but lets himself create a unique blend of scents to provide a high-end aspect to the La Collection Privee Collection that compliments the DIOR world of artistry.


GRAND BAL by Chrristian Dior
   I remember my first purchase of Grand Bal  Eau de Parfum (2012) in this collection. The staff at the Christian Dior counter in Neiman-Marcus Chicago were beaming with excitement when I wanted to try and purchase Grand Bal. They couldn't stop talking about how breathtaking the scent is and how Christian Dior's ball gowns were the inspiration for the fragrance. 

 Grand Bal is a jasmine fragrance but not just using a single note. I was transformed into an oasis of jasmine and citrus scents with a hint of sandalwood to keep it mysterious.


Elisabeth de Feydeau
  Elisabeth de Feydeau is a perfume expert and historian writer that will get to the heart of the matter with passion that she has shown in notable books written on fragrance icons.

 Assouline is unique and  a one of a kind publishing company. It takes a lot of dedication for all involved in creating a book  and I noticed that Assouline does it from the beautiful design of the book covers the contents inside the book to the back cover of books. 

 La Collection Privee Christian Dior Parfum will walk you through the journey with a creative essence that you could almost spell through the book.

In my estimation, this book is a masterpiece and I cannot wait to explore it and share my journey with it to the world!

The Royal Scent

NEW FEATURE


                                                 Bella Bellissima
                              Royal Saffron Parfum
                                         

      

 Bella Bellissima is a fine British perfumery created by Bella Crane that captivates globally with an array of exotic fragrances that are created with the world's finest ingredients.

 This particular fragrance captured me recently because I have been using a wonderful facial product by Forest Essentials founded in India. One of the ingredients used in this facial product is saffron.

  Saffron is the world's most expensive spice and it is virtually used in many spicy and tasty dishes found in India. So, when I discovered Royal Saffron Parfum by Bella Bellissima, I knew I had to try it.

  Royal Saffron is created for women and men and it features delicate, dark and spicy notes that I found quite intriguing. As with the facial product I use by Forest Essentials, I found that the saffron is the most outstanding scent that leaves a nutty and earthy scent to my skin. Royal Saffron leaves the same kind of drydown but it would include a flowery essence with the hint of the dark notes from the patchouli, sandalwood and agarwood, better know as oud.

  The name says it all. I actually felt quite regal and just a dab will last a long time. On me it lasted for six hours. I am in love with Oriental spicy fragrances because it makes me feel bold, secure and unstoppable.
Bella Crane

  Royal Saffron Parfum was launched in 2011 and I think it is one of the best in the collection.

 Royal Saffron Parfum featured notes.

Kashmiri Saffron, Green Notes, Violet Leaf, Clove, 
Rose, Jasmine, Lavender, Carnation, Agarwood (Oud), Sandalwood, Patchouli, Papyrus, Soft Musk, Gurjan Balsam and Leather. 


Royal Saffron Parfum can be purchased at www.selfridges.com

Fragrance Review


                                                     A Rose For You?
                           A Rose For.... by Floris London


   British niche perfumery Floris of London welcomes romance with a new fragrance launched just in time for Valentine's Day. Its called A Rose For... who do you ask? Well that is up to you but A Rose For... is given to you with all the hype of a romantic day in this Oriental rose scent that is composed for women and men.

    A Rose For... is not just for Valentine's Day but for any special occasion. However what makes this fragrance so unique is not just the scent but how you are actively involved in the presentation. 

  Here is a quote from the House of Floris that will tell you exactly how it works!
   
  *To provide the name you'd like written on the bottle, please add a gift message at the "Gift Options" stage of the checkout with the name written in the gift message. We can only accommodate first names, i.e. A Rose for Emily.
  A Rose for… is unique to the possessor, signifying the personal attachment to scent. Defined by no-one, it is truly for you."

  According to the House of Floris, Edward Bodenham perfumer for A Rose For visited Morocco in 2015. He was intrigued by how the rose could interpret and identify its natural origin. So he studied this characteristic in the rose and A Rose For...was born.

Mr. Bodenham beautifully depicted the rose in this fragrance by giving it a warmth that is altogether different with an taste of elegance all its own.

 A Rose For...Eau de Parfum consist of these ingredients. 

Top Note: Darjeeling Tea, Incense
Heart: Red Rose, Tuberose, Orris, Oud
Base: Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Amber, Patchouli, Vanilla, Incense

Available at www.florislondon.com 
160.00 euros

FRAGRANCE REVIEW

                          The Eaudemoiselle Collection
                              Eaudemoiselle Rose a la Folie
                                                  GIVENCHY

    


    GIVENCHY is a French fashion, accessories and perfume brand founded in 1952 by Count Hubert de Givenchy.

      The Eaudemoiselle Collection was established in 2010 with the introduction of Eaudemoiselle de Givenchy for women. 

      Since then the collection as grown to include Eaudemoiselle de Givenchy Eau Fraiche, Eaudemoiselle de Givenchy Eau Florale and Eaudemoiselle de Givenchy Bois de Oud all for women in 2012.

      Eaudemoiselle de Givenchy Ambre Velour for women in 2013 and Eaudemoiselle de Givenchy Absolu d'Oranger for women in 2015.

      This classic collection continues with the launch of Eaudemoiselle Rose a la Folie Eau de Toilette. Its is an elegant and sophisticated scent that is loaded with roses that gives the ideal of a modern baby doll scent for today's classic and creative woman.

      Eaudemoiselle Rose a la Folie comes in the classic bottle but this time it is pink in color. The scent includes notes of Tanghulu. A Chinese sweet candied hawthorn berries that is similar to the scent of caramelized apples. It continues with tea rose as the heart note and concludes with a note of musk as the base. 

    To complete this fragrance just in time for Valentine's Day it is available as a 100 ml.

    Eaudemoiselle Rose a la Foiie Eau de Toilette is available via www.givenchybeauty.com


*************************************************************************************************

                                                 Lolita Lempicka
                                      SWEET Eau de Parfum
                               

    I feel over the hill with the first and original fragrance, Lolita Lempicka Eau de Parfum launched in 1997. It was the gourmand Oriental Floral wrapped together that gave an essence of beauty that words could not explain. It was this fragrance that caught my then fiance's attention. Since that day on our anniversary now almost 16 years that I wear it (if I can save some for the next year). 

  Lolita Lempicka is a fashion designer and perfume creator born in 1954 in  Bordeaux, France. Lolita admired her mother who was a seamstress and as they say the rest is history.

  As I was doing research several months ago, I discovered that Lolita Lempicka was going to launch a new fragrance. Yes, I was more than excited and I had to find out what it was going to be. The name of the fragrance is one simple word but not for a simple fragrance. It's called, "Sweet". 

  This time Lolita Lempicka really took the bite out of the apple with another successful scent that surely take my breath away!

  Sweet Eau de Parfum is the new scent that will transform the way we look at the cherry. It is a scent that is steeped in cherry and a cocoa assemble that is mouth watering from the first note.

  It is composed by award-winning perfumer Anne Flipo. Who is known for creating spellbinding scents that have become cult classics. 

  Let me put it mildly, Sweet is cherry dipped in chocolate that will leave you licking your fingers like scraping the bowl to get the last drop of icing. 

  I contacted the Lolita Lempicka company to find out when I could get my hands on a sample, bottle or anything!  

 But before I tell you where, I need to tell you more about Sweet Eau de Parfum. The packaging is simply and truly is in the eye of the beholder. 

 It starts with a red box decadent to the Lolita Lempicka logo and the gem is inside the box. Take out the bottle and you get an apple shaped curvy, glossy and delicious looking. It is a bold red with golden outlines and the shiny stem of the apple is the sprayer that is a work of art.

The first thought in my mind is that I will never look an apple the same way. To me it was a message of power and motivation as it sat glistening awaiting the first forbidden bite. 

 I get excited about fragrances all the time. Regardless if it is a classic or the latest artisan creation but it is something about Sweet Eau de Parfum that transformed the life of the fragrance industry.

 Lolita Lempicka fragrances is not just an extension of her fashion collection but her perfume collection breathes life into the fragrance industry which gives a new meaning to a piece of fruit...the first fruit of mankind and that was an apple. 

 Now, you ask what is it made with. Glad you asked. The top note is cherry, the heart notes are iris, cocoa absolute and Angelica and the base concludes with musk and cashmeran.

 The tip of the iceberg is that Lolita Lempicka did not miss a beat when it was launched because during a limited time, Sweet Eau de Parfum (50 ml) and a spray bottle (7 ml) is available at www.nocibe.fr

 This is a French beauty website that can be translated into English. This exclusive collection only found on nocibe,fr comes with a very cute box that resembles a mail slot and it is elegantly called "Lolita Lempicka Sweet Words box Valentine". 


If you are seeking an extraordinary gift for Valentine's Day this would be it! If you only want the bottle and you are located in the US. You can purchase it at www.parfumslolitalempicka.com

It is available as a 30 ml in the US.

Sweet Eau de Parfum chose the lovely actress and model, Elle Fanning to be the spokesperson for this scent and I think she is the perfect choice. Sweet is a young and vibrant fragrance but it can be enjoyed by every woman at any age. 



  Note: I am so serious about this Sweet Eau de Parfum that I had my face photoshopped under a Kitty Andrew's hat (www.kittyandrews.com) with a bottle of Sweet Eau de Parfum that was also photoshopped.
