                                      THE BEST OF YEAR 2010


                             A BLUE RIBBON PERFUME REVIEW



     This has been overwhelming and exciting year for the niche and natural perfume industry. My email was running over with perfume launches that kept me running to Walgreens to buy notepads.
It was also a difficult year in terms of the Best of 2010. There were so many beautiful scents with meanings and stories behind the creations that left me speechless. This year’s BLUE RIBBON PERFUME REVIEW is my own version of the story. I am sure you have your favorites for 2010 but this year in my life is the year for change and I felt these blue ribbon perfumes exemplified to me what FRAGRANCE BELLES-LETTRES: THE MAGAZINE represents… individualism, historical themes, aristocratics and legends...past and present.

SWEET HOME CHICAGO

Posted by Felicia M Hazzard 22 December, 2010 0 comments

        I’ll be Home for Christmas
             A Chicago Style Review         
          Le Labo Baie Rose 26 Eau de Parfum

    “I’ll be home for Christmas. You can count on me”. These are the words of a very popular Christmas song that I love hearing it be song by Barbra Streisand. Yes, I will be home for Christmas in Chicago for so many reasons.

  I know there are the blistering winds of what Chicago is known for and that is the “Windy City” but there are other exclusives to Chicago. There are the lights all along Michigan Avenue that beam the streets of high end stores and boutiques. Then there is the Magnificent Mile Festival of Lights parade that draws hundreds of people each year who watch the sensational fireworks display after the parade.

  There is another EXCLUSIVE to Chicago, courtesy of Le Labo Parfum. Le Labo Parfum is a French perfume company from Grasse with boutiques in New York, Los Angeles, London and Tokyo. This French perfumery is known for freshly hand manufacturing high end fragrances composed by some of the world’s best perfumers.

  Baie Rose 26 Eau de Parfum composed by Frank Voekl who created this scent to represent the uplifting rhythm of jazz that is so prevalent in Chicago neighborhoods.

  This exclusive fragrance to Chicago is filled with fragrant notes that add a musical flair and a lingering sensation with every beat. These notes are ambrox, clove pepper, rose, baie rose, musk, cedar and aldehyde.

 What makes Chicago’s jazz scene so rich is the diverse cultures that come together for the last 30 years or more to the Chicago Jazz Festival.

 The Chicago Jazz Festival last about four days on the Lakefront and features some of the most sort after artist such as “Chi-Town’s own, Ramsey Lewis, Chicago Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble and many others. So, if you love traditional Christmas songs and instrumental Christmas songs from Kenny G, then Baie Rose 26 Eau de Parfum is ideal for you.

 Come home for Christmas and go to Barneys New York in Chicago where Baie Rose 26 is exclusively sold and find the musical olfactory composition that brings Chicago together.

 Note: “Chi-Town” is a slang word for Chicago. Chicago is known for its rich and diverse culture.

 Purchase: 100 ml  $400.00; 50 ml $260.00 lelabofragrances.com, Barney’s New York in Chicago 15 East Oak Street, for information contact info-chicago@barneys.com

QUINTESSENTIALLY PUBLISHING: A look into a luxury perfume book

Posted by Felicia M Hazzard 16 December, 2010 0 comments

    
    An Exclusive Interview with Nathalie Grainger
           The Success Behind Quintessentially Perfume: The Book 

        Quintessentially Publishing's London based office is known for their dedication to luxurious services and products. Quintessentially Publishing was established in 2005 but for the very first time, it is publishing a book on perfume. Not just any perfume but a book about some of the most elite perfumers, perfume houses and perfume industry leaders worldwide.

        Nathalie Grainger, Co-Writer and Perfume Consultant (although during my interview with her, she proclaims she doesn't actually have a title, but you will see why Ms. Grainger said this.) is the driving force behind the creation of Quintessentially Perfume and the worldwide success that it has become.

        Ms. Grainger spoke with me via email about her part in producing Quintessentially Perfume and what this means to the art of perfumery and publishing.

The Interview...

       
Hello Nathalie and thank you so much for this great opportunity to speak with you about your new book, Quintessentially Perfume. I would like to introduce you to the readers by asking What is your title at Quintessentially Publishing Ltd in London, England?



I don’t really have a title as such (haha) although I do have quite a lot of work that revolves around any number of things. Mainly though I have been responsible for Communications, sales and marketing for Quintessentially Publishing.







When did you become involved with Quintessentially Publishing?



I was commissioned to compile and project manage Quintessentially perfume in April 2009. Before that I was working as a perfume consultant starting at Senteurs d’Ailleurs in Brussels ( grew up and lived in Brussels most of my life) , quite possibly the most beautiful and wonderful staffed perfume boutique I have ever known.







Nathalie, what do you do on a day to day basis?



At the moment, as I am still assisting Quintessentially Publishing with follow up work for Quintessentially Perfume, my main role is to take care of distribution for the book worldwide. In other words I have placed the book in different specialized books stores and perfumeries; it is also now doing really well in exclusive department stores to my delight and is used as a training tool for perfume companies with their training staff. I have also been establishing channels of distribution for Quintessentially Perfume to all of Quintessentially’s Elite members- the likes of which include some of the world’s leading artists, musicians, entrepreneurs and royal families. It’s fair to say that the book has fallen into the hands of some luminary characters- great news for the independent perfume brands featured within the book.



On a day to day basis, I also make sure that all other books in the Quintessentially Publishing portfolio can now achieve the same success as Quintessentially Perfume in terms of retail income, through strategic placement.







As a young girl, you indicated in the book that you were fascinated with perfume. What in particular fascinated you about perfume?







I suppose it was the romantic association with holidays with my parents and the feeling of comfort that my first memories of scent brought me. My first experience of perfume was a 6 year old in the depths of luscious Cornwall in south west England. I bought a little bottle of violet water with my pocket money. It was fluorescent green for Goodness’s Sakes! But to me it smelled divine and that was the beginning of my fascination with perfume and scents. At the time I was not happy at school so holidays were precious to me.







What were some of your favorite perfumes while growing up?



Oooh now then, my beloved gran wore Mitsouko which was delicious to me and still to this day makes me think of her and my mum too. It was just so mysterious! I couldn’t believe how something so spicy could smell so soft at the same time. It sank into her very skin.



I loved very grow- up perfumes- Opium, Rive Gauche, Magie Noire, all the scents worn by adults I admired.







Nathalie, was it always a desire for you to write or publish a book about perfumes?



Funnily enough, it had not even occurred to me at the stage I was approached….though I have often written and used words in my professional life, either interpreting and translating websites for perfume boutiques from French to English. I suppose that was such a satisfying thing for me to do because I could just escape into my own world really and that absorbing activity was reflected in the way I have always worked with perfume and people. I have to totally throw myself into things if I am passionate which is why every little detail matters and hurts if it’s not right for whatever reason.







Congratulations! Nathalie on helping produce such a beautiful book that is full of information on the perfumers, the perfume houses and the gorgeous perfume creations that are known to the world. Quintessentially Perfume covers so much information and it even includes a glossary of frequent words used in the world of perfumery! Nathalie, did the book turn out the way you wanted or while gathering information and doing research, did you have to take a different turn then what you originally may have wanted?



Hmm very good question Felicia. In fact, the book turned out completely differently but for the better I must say.



My original brief was to collate and compile a series of perfume brands as a kind of glossy hard back catalogue. Nothing more, Nothing less, to attract the interest of Quintessentially’s worldwide member base.



However as time went on, it became clear to me as I slogged away trying to get perfume brands to agree to pay to feature ( usually they have no budget and/or don’t advertise) that it was not going to work. It was at this stage that I decided to bring in extra points of interests such as articles from experts, interviews and a more varied base of perfume brands.



As it all started to come together I then saw that it was going to be a lovely celebration of perfume and the brands out there without any snobbery and with something to interest everyone- from amateur or novice, to perfume aficionado. It was also better than I thought in the sense that I had to cater to many non-English readers and I was conscious of not slipping into simplified language for that reason. I don’t think there is anything patronizing thankfully in the content. No one should feel intimidated or bored reading it, if they have a slight interest in perfume.







Who did you talk to about the idea of writing a perfume book at Quintessentially Publishing? How was the idea received?



I was commissioned by Quintessentially Publishing to head up the project on my own as they didn’t have anyone within their own workforce with the experience or knowledge or contacts. There was however a colleague of mine at the time who had a friendship with Roja Dove. They were a very good starting point for sounding out ideas.







How did you approach the perfumers about working with you on Quintessentially Perfume and was it an easy or difficult task? Well it was the good old-fashioned approach of phoning them up and then emailing and then chasing them up afterwards. It was in turn lonely, scary, interesting and daunting although there were some people who I had already dealt with previously. It was tough. It was tough getting people to make that leap of faith and decide to invest their brand into the book. They had to just go with their gut instinct at first and then after face to face meetings and as pages started to be designed I then could show them the look of the book.







Nathalie, what is your biggest accomplishment about Quintessentially Perfume that make you the most proud?



Quite simply getting the book done. Never would I have imagined that I could have done something like this and that it would turn out looking as nice as it does and, more importantly, give the perfume brands such a good boost. I am proud of being able to promote some personal favourites in there like, Serge Lutens, Guerlain, Annick Goutal and Aqaba. What has been very worthy of pride is the effect on sales of perfumes featured. It’s great to see these brands being stocked in more stores as a result of the book. That’s what it’s all about for these creators. It’s word of mouth and bread and butter stuff.







What perfumer(s) did you find most intriguing during your interview and why?



I was spoiled for choice but for the element of surprise- Geza Schoen and Isabelle Doyen- without a shadow of a doubt. Geza is rebellious, interested and supremely talented. Plus we got on really well. I could imagine having a few drinks with him and putting the (fragrance) world to rights. There is nothing superior or pretentious about him which is just how it should be when you’re talking about something as fundamentally instinctive as the olfactory sense. Isabelle Doyen was disarmingly friendly and made me feel like a friend for the brief time I spent with her in Paris. Her creations make me shudder with envy.







Will there be more Quintessentially Perfume books in the near future? How will you continue to expand the fragrance component of Quintessentially Publishing?



Ah maybe, we will see how this book fares. By the looks of it there will be another book of some sort but in the meantime I will revert back to my previous career path which is perfume and would love, love, love to be a consultant running workshops training people to sell perfume. I’d love to be a perfume whisperer! J







Lastly, Nathalie How is Quintessentially Publishing Ltd different from other publishing companies in the UK and the USA? What unique quality stands out best about Quintessentially Publishing Ltd.



Well we are only a tiny little company and have to keep ourselves ticking over from day to day and yet we cater to the most exclusive and luxurious clients so I guess that is quite a paradox. I would like to open up the options so that we can start looking at other aspects of publishing that incorporate digital applications.







Nathalie this has been a complete honor for me. Thank you so much for sharing your time and thoughts with me. I wish you continued success and I look forward to hearing more about Quintessentially Publishing Ltd



Felicia- you actually have no idea how honoured I am to have you even interested in this project with all the things that come along every day.







Thank you so much, I hope that I get to meet you one day. If anyone out there wants a training manager or needs a consultant, let me know!

Editors Note: Quintessentially Perfume is an absolutelywonderful hardcover book. It is truly a book that all Perfumistas should have for reference and as a beautiful addition to your home decor.

My sincere thank you to Ms. Grainger and all the staff at Quintessentially Publishing, Ltd for their kindness in giving me this luxurious book that will be forever cherished.

Scents of the Holiday Part II

Posted by Felicia M Hazzard 15 December, 2010 0 comments

           An Old- Fashioned Sweet Christmas

     My aunt, Grace gave me a recipe several years ago called the Christmas Cake. This recipe was very similar to the famous, Red Velvet Cake with the exception of a few ingredients.

       The Christmas Cake is one of the most delicious and beautiful looking cakes, I have seen in a long time.
       When I think of Red Velvet Cake, I immediately think of decadence and luxury. There is a story behind, the Red Velvet Cake that is sort of an urban legend. According to legend both Canada and the United States have laid claim to its origin. The recipe comes from the famous Waldorf-Astoria hotel and a customer was charged $350 US for the recipe.

    Whether this is true or just a legend, we call all agree that Red Velvet Cake is indeed the best!

    The Dirty House Wife of New Hampshire,is owned by Tanya Malcolm offers a line of essential oils in perfume, soap, lip balm and skin care. I was sold simply on the names of these products. I chose several items to review from the Sweet Spot Collection.It is a collection for candy and sweet lovers and simply delectable!

   Red Velvet Perfume Artisan Oil is made with high quality phthalate free fragrances and blended in coconut oil. Red Velvet Perfume Artisan Oil has a cake essence with familiar aromas of mild cocoa, buttermilk and topped with rich cream cheese frosting. It not only smells delicious but it is good for the skin and will linger for hours.


   Red Velvet Perfume Artisan Oil comes in a roll on bottle and weighs 30 fluid ounces for $8.00

  Red Velvet Honey and Mango Butter Soap is filled with the aroma of a luscious Christmas dessert with a twist of honey and mango for the healthy conscious individuals. It looks so real that you just want to take a fork and eat up.

  Red Velvet Honey and Mango Butter Soap is $4.50

  Peppermint Cream Whipped Butter Soap with Camellia Seed Oil

  Peppermint Cream is a velvety and crisp scent. It has the cool scent oil peppermint with the conditioning essential of the Camellia Seed Oil. It provides a gentle and invigorating tingling feeling with a hint of sugary vanilla aroma. This is "cleaning in style".

  Peppermint Cream comes in two sizes 4 ounces for $6.50 and 8 ounces for $12.99. It comes in the color of "snow".

  "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire". These few words is the opening song of one of my most favorite Christmas album by Nat King Cole. Chestnuts symbolizes sitting in front on an open fire and talking with family and friends on a cold snowy night.

  The Dirty Housewife showcases another Christmas scent for the die-harts that need everything to smell just right.

  Spiced Chestnuts Artisan Perfume Oil is a sweet and spicy scent. It is made with fragrance and coconut oil which is good for the skin. You can not only feel the moment but smell like it too. It will make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

  The essence is of roasted chestnuts, spicy berry, nutmeg, clove, warm vanilla sugar

  Spiced Chestnuts Artisan Perfume Oil comes in a roll on bottle and weighs 30 fluid ounces for $8.00

Spiced Chestnut Perfume Oil by The Dirty Housewife
  This same sweet and spicy scent is transformed into the Spiced Chestnut Butter Whip Soap with the additions of Avocado Oil and Avocado Seeds. The soap is equally great for the skin and the avocado seeds is added for gentle exfoliation.

  Spiced Chestnut Butter Whip Soap comes in a plastic amber wide mouth jar in two sizes 4 ounces for $6.50 and 8 ounces for $ 12.99

  Purchase: thedirtyhousewife.etsy.com
  

   During this time of the year, I love watching old movies such as "White Christmas', 'Christmas in Connecticut' and 'It's a Wonderful Life'. I watch these amazing actors such as Bing Crosby, Barbara Stanwyck and James Stewart who bring such glamour and realism into these parts that it puts me right in that scene.

   There is a company that loves those same great films of "old Hollywood". The glitz and glamour of it all is timeless and Starlet Glam, Bath & Body company from Providence, Rhode Island was created for the "Timeless Glamour for everyday".

    Red Velvet Cake Perfume Oil Stiletto Seduction is a concentrated perfume oil blended by hand with the use of fractionated coconut oil and jojoba oil. It consist of...

 Top Notes: decadent dark chocolate, strawberry syrup and red current
 Middle Notes: cocoa powder, buttermilk and sugar cane
 Base Notes: sandalwood, tonka bean, vanilla extract

   Red Velvet Cake Perfume Oil Stiletto Seduction is a mouthwatering scent of rich cake essence that is super light and absorbing. It lingers with a soft glow to the skin because it is not alcohol based that is drying to the skin.

   It comes in a .35 ounce for $10.00

  The Red Velvet craze is not over yet, try that same tantalizing aroma of dark chocolate, buttermilk, tonka bean and vanilla extract and put it into a creamy soap and you will get ...Red Velvet Cake Naughty You Whipped Cream Soap .

Red Velvet Cake Perfume Oil "Stiletto Seductions by Starlet Glam
  Red Velvet Cake Naughty You Whipped Cream Soap is a vegan paraben is a very light and whipped soap. It has a rich and thick lather that is added with avocado oil and sweet almond oil for moisturizing and conditioning of the skin. It is all about decadence and luxury this Holiday Season!

   It comes in a 4.5 oz for $8.00

   Red Velvet Cake is "lip smacking" good. So, in order to keep those puckers moisturized and smooth while attending Holiday parties you are going to need lip balm. I have the perfect solution for winter lips and that is with Starlet Glam's Red Velvet Lip Balm Shimmer 'Timeless Love' and Peppermint Patty Lip Balm 'Shimmer Shining Star'.

   Red Velvet Lip Balm 'Timeless Love' is a combination of Devil's food cake and Butter cream flavor oil. It is smooth and creamy that smells good and good for the lips. It gets better, Red Velvet Lip Balm 'Timeless Love' is filled with Cocoa and Shea Butter for added protection. No color is added, tint or sweetener but it does contain ultra fine glitter for lots of sparkle and shine.


  Peppermint Patty Lip Balm 'Shimmer Shining Star' defines the York Peppermint Patty. It evokes much like it with a cool taste that is creamy with dipped mint chocolate. Peppermint Patty Lip Balm 'Shimmer Shining Star' is enriched with Cocoa and Shea Butter for added moisturizing and conditioning in harsh winter weather. No color is added, tint or sweetener but for that extra sparkle and shine, ultra fine glitter was added to win them over at the glitzy Hollywood parties!


  Lip Balms come in 15.oz tubes with tamper resistant perforated shrink wrap at $5.00 each.


  Purchase:starletglambathbody.etsy.com

   
  These great products are great for after Christmas, too. Just think if you did not get the item that you wanted, don't fret order your own gift from The Dirty Housewife or Starlet Glam Bath & Body. They both offer having your cake (Red Velvet Cake Perfume Oils) and eating it, too.




Are the "outlaw" ingredients...so bad?

Posted by Felicia M Hazzard 12 December, 2010 0 comments

            It's not an OUTLAW...It is a privilege

     This is the eighth review of the Natural Perfumers Guild's Outlaw Perfume Project. This is a very interesting topic that has caused quite a controversy in the USA regarding if marijuana should be legalized. If you are on the side of wanting to have marijuana legalized, then I might have the perfect solution for you. I am not a politician or an activist on this issue, but as a fragrance writer, there is a fragrance that has cannabis in it.

     Cannabis Eau de Toilette by dupetit is made with cannabis. No, not like those synthetic brands that say real cannabis is used when it is not. Cannabis Eau de Toilette has "real" cannabis in it.

    I must admit, I have never smelled cannabis before, so I could not tell you if it was real or not. So, I had to consult with several people who are familiar with the scent of cannabis and they all confirmed that Cannabis Eau de Toilette is the real thing.

   Cannabis Eau de Toilette was created by Alfredo Dupetit-Bernardi in Germany. When I first sprayed it on, my head bucked back because it came on a little strong for me, but shortly those fruity flavors took over and blended wonderfully on my skin. I enjoyed the orange blossom absolute and the sweetness of the orange peel oil. It indeed softened the robust scent and it was quite calming, too.

  This fragrance was made with many ingredients that are considered to be "outlaws". Yes, cannabis is one of them that is quite a headliner but the other ingredients in Cannabis Eau de Toilette all should be headliners, too. However, Mr.Dupetit- Bernardi stands behind this fragrance and does not think that cannabis should be outlawed simply because big business says so.
 
   Mr. Dupetit-Bernardi votes that cannabis should not be prohibited and I agree.

Cannabis Eau de Toilette
   Cannabis Eau de Toilette consist of: basil oil (holy), bay oil (west indian), bergamot leaf oil, birch tar oil, citronella oil, clove oil, geranium oil, ginger oil, grapefruit peel oil, jasmine sambac absolute, lemon peel oils, lemon verbena absolute, lime peel oil (expressed), mace oil, nutmeg oil, orange blossom absolute, orange leaf oil, orange peel oil (bitter), orange peel oil (sweet), peppermint oil, rose absolute, rose oil, rue oil, taget absolute, thyme oil (thymol CT), tolu balsam extract
