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.

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.

    Fragrance Announcement


           CLIQUE by Roble' Nominated for Prestigious Design Award


             I must admit, I love the channel BRAVO. It has one of the best- if not THE best reality shows. For me, I learn a lot from them especially the chic spots that the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' shop and dine to  'Million Dollar Listings' New York and Los Angeles to my favorite Celebrity Chef Roble' Ali of the famed 'Chef Roble' and Co'.

           There is nothing more inspiring to me than combining the careers of the culinary arts with the 'Art of Perfumery' and this is exactly what Chef Roble' Ali has done. I am totally, totally impressed with his talent as a chef on the reality show. For me its about how he takes simple ingredients that can be found in my refrigerator and bring them to life by adding and mixing flavors. Extraordinary!

        Chef Roble' has created culinary dream dishes and pastries for such people as President Barack Obama, Donald Trump, Jack Nicholson just to same a few.

       CLIQUE by Roble' is the Fragrance Recipe designed by the chef who has teamed up with Brands With Purpose to launch the fragrance inspired by Roble's signature menu creations.

      CLIQUE by Roble' has not launched yet (expected Spring 2014) but the popularity garner so far and its unique and revolutionary fragrance creation has been nominated for the   International Package Design Award Finalist 2014.

     The HBA Global Expo, the B28 industry event for cosmetics, fragrance and packaging honors excellence in beauty and personal care packaging at the International Package Design Awards each year.

     According to sources, the bottle and carton of CLIQUE by Roble' was chosen by Chef Roble' with Brands With Purpose.

     The bottle has a culinary flair to it that represents its Fragrance Recipe brand.

     So, CLIQUE by Roble' is an instant success! Right? Well according to sources the scent represents an oriental gourmand with notes of some of Chef Roble' signature creations.

     CLIQUE by Roble' is a collaboration with Master Perfumer, Frank Voelkl (Firmenich). What could the notes in this scent consist of. Its an oriental gourmand, so the first ingredient I thought of was vanilla (my ultimate favorite) and perhaps honey?

     You decide. Truly I am having fun with this most successful and technology breakthrough for such a young and energetic man.


     This breathes new ideas in the realms of science and the art of perfumery into a totally different direction that gives life to the fragrance industry.

     If you are in New York or even if you are not, it is worth the travel to be apart of this momentous event when the ONE winner is announced!

     The International Package Design Award Ceremony & Reception on Wednesday, June 11, 2014 in the Trends Theater starting at 3:30pm in New York City.

     Currently, there are tickets available but I know this will be a sell-out!
     For ticket information go to www.compusystems.com

     Best of luck, Chef Roble and team!

    EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW


                                                                Tessa Williams
                                                      CULT PERFUMES
                                                      The Book & Exclusive Interview


            It gives me great pleasure to introduce a book that I admired since the first glance at its description while searching for book on fragrances that I may have missed.

           The title, CULT PERFUMES- The World's Most Exclusive Perfumeries published by MERRELL gave me goose bumps. It was intriguing and a little bit of a mystery to find out what perfumeries the author thought were exclusive.


          Tessa Williams is a journalist and has written for several well known publications such as Vogue, Marie Claire, Elle, The Times, just to name a few. I immediately assumed Ms. Williams knew what she is talking about because those publications only work with the best and most knowledgeable writers.

         I admire the extensive research done for this book and for Ms.Williams taking the time and expense to visit over 25 perfumeries to conduct interviews with the perfumers, and get a behind the scene look at these beloved perfumeries that have reached the noses and hearts of millions of people around the world.

        Not only is the research detailed by CULT PERFUMES offers beautiful photos of the perfumeries, the perfumes and of the perfumers. So, you get a package deal with this book.

       The layout and understanding of each perfumery in CULT PERFUMES is easy reading with details that gives historical background starting with Ancient Egypt to the master perfumeries of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

     If you are new to niche perfumery, Welcome...CULT PERFUMES-The World's Most Exclusive Perfumeries is a excellent place to start.

     I am deeply honored and privileged to have Tessa Williams, author of CULT PERFUMES-The World's Most Exclusive Perfumeries answer my questions about this beautifully orchestrated book of my most favorite fragrances.


                                  THE INTERVIEW


    1. Tessa, did you write Cult Perfumes: The World's Most Exclusive Perfumeries because you felt this type of book and subject matter is missing from the fragrance industry?


    I wrote the book that I wanted to read and there is certainly no other book like this around about fragrances.

    I’ve always been fascinated by perfume, even as a young girl, each scent I knew began to unravel a different story for me.

    I wanted to write a book about perfume, and initially I had a different idea,

    this was similar but slightly different and the publisher liked this so this was how the book evolved.


    2. The book is so beautifully arranged. Did you arrange the layout of pictures and articles yourself or did you have help?
    I was lucky to have worked with an amazingly talented team at Merrell.

    My Editor there, Claire Chandler was a terrific help and the Art Director, Nicola Bailey

    had this incredible artistic vision for a very beautiful book . Sadly they have now departed to

    work at various other companies as the publishing company is no longer as diverse.

    3. During your interviews with the perfumers, what would you say is the most common in terms of their passion for perfumery?

    I came across undying passion amongst the perfumers that I met. The most uniting theme seemed to be that most people were creating their

    unique and special perfumes for love of creation than from mere commercial desire to make something that sold in the wider sphere.


    4. Tessa, how time consuming was it preparing to write CULT PERFUMES: The World's Most Exclusive Perfumeries?

    The whole process probably took around 2 years -

    The research was a wonderful journey for me, taking me to meet

    such special perfumers all around the world, from the magical Serge Lutens in Paris to being present at the 400th anniversary party of Santa Maria Novella in Florence.

    Whenever possible I made the journey to meet people personally as I wanted the book to reflect this authenticity and connect with the perfumers on a one to one basis.


     I did face to face interviews with many key fragrance creators, which took a lot of time, probably about a year , compiling them all and travelling to each place.

    Roja Dove , a real character , Francis Kurkdjian, a fascinating and very likable Parisian, Jo Malone, a very business like and rather tough but friendly lady, Antonia Bellanca (creator of Antonia’s Flowers) wonderfully passionate and inspiring Italian/ American .

    After months of travels and many telephone and Skype interviews

    it then took hour upon hour of sitting writing on the computer, into the night and starting early in the morning.

    I was lucky that my family , also writers and artists were especially encouraging to me at this time.

    My father used to ask me every day how many words I had written - that really helped - Also working with a fantastic Editor who insisted on deadlines being met and would not allow for much procrastination. My daughter too was very helpful

    and encouraging - she also has a great interest in perfumes, even though she is only 9 , she already has quite a collection of them!


    5. What types of scents do you personally enjoy wearing?

    I am a big fan of tuberose, I originally loved the Jo Malone Tuberose, now discontinued, I enjoy Fracas a lot by Robert Piguet, I also love Earl Grey Tea by Angela Flanders, I can’t ever say no to a bit of Chanel no 5 and I do also like Chanel No 19 Poudre, I really adore Santa Maria Novella’s Sicilia cologne, I love Oud too by Maison Francis Kurkdjian and I’m very fond of Eau d’Hadrien by Annick Goutal , Mitsouko by Guerlain and also I am a big fan of Epic Woman by Amouage.


    6. What types of scents do you think are most popular among consumers in the niche market?
    There seems to be a big surge in popularity for the Oud type of perfumes just now in the niche market perhaps influenced by middle east. Also rose scents seem popular just now too .

    7. What have your learned from this experience in writing your first book?
    It has been a really wonderful experience writing this first book and it has encouraged me to write more .

    I am now working on three other books, another on perfume, another guide book on a different theme and a novel. There is a lot of satisfaction in having finished something, that the feeling of writing a book gives you

    and also something tangible, in our internet dominated world it is sometimes quite refreshing to be able to hold something and turn the physical pages and be moved by a beautiful design on the page that goes with the writing.


    8. What advice would you give to someone who wants to write a book?

    Write it! Best advice .... do it and make sure you are writing about something you really LOVE! As writing is a very very tough and lonely occupation. However the opportunities, the rewards in kind and the people you will meet during the process will always be an unforgettable part of your life!

    You could also write a best seller - You never know!

    Make yourself a realistic deadline of when you can finish the book and set yourself a goal of writing so many words per day. Do it every day too, even if is just a few words, write something new every day. You can always go back and edit once you have written.

    9. Lastly, how should consumers refer to your book such as a picture book, reference, coffee table book? 
    Many people call it a Coffee Table book, I’m quite happy with that or a Reference Book - as I did not have much to do with the Photography I would not call it a Picture book, though it does have many beautiful images.

    Many thanks Tessa and much continued success.
