FALL FRAGRANCE RELEASES 2011 + A TRIBUTE+ BOOK+MORE

Posted by Felicia M Hazzard 24 September, 2011

   The totally feminine fragrance by burlesque beauty, Dita Von Teese has finally revealed her new perfume to the world and it is named, FEMME TOTALE.

 
  FEMME TOTALE is described as "glamourous and mysterious. Self-confident and seductive".


  The fragrance will OFFICIALLY launch at the end of October 2011 (just in time for my birthday!) wink.


  FEMME TOTALE featured notes... TOP NOTES: peonies, bergamot, Bourbon pepper   HEART NOTES: Bulgarian rose, Tahitian Tiare petals, jasmine   BASE NOTES: patchouli, musk, smoky Gaiac wood and sandalwood




  The French perfume house MEMO introduces the new scent, GRANADA given honor to the city in Spain.
 
  Clara Molloy, the brainchild behind the house of MEMO was a book publisher who created this successful perfumery in 2007.


  GRANADA is described as a "warm and spicy" scent. It relishes in the exotic and mystical isles of the Inca. The perfect fragrance for those who seek scents from faraway locals.


  This fragrance is an Eau de Parfum and its featured notes... TOP NOTES: bergamot, lemon, ginger   HEART NOTES: iris, cypress, tonka   BASE NOTES: vanilla, opoponax, labdanum


  Now this is my kind of style from reading and researching about perfumery, to starting a perfume house. In my opinion it pays to do lots of research before launching a company. The results have paid off for Ms. Molloy tremendously.


  GRANADA is available in sizes 30 & 75 ML.




  The dazzling house of L'Artisan Parfumeur releases a new fragrance in October that will make you put on your dancing shoes and sip a mojito. The musical sounds of BATUCADA, "the fragrance with  rhythm and a samba style that originates from Rio de Janeiro.


  BATUCADA is a unisex fragrance created by    perfumers Karine Vinchon and Elizabeth Maier.


  This excting scent features lemon, coconut, caipirnha accord (lime and sugar cane) mint, tiare, ylang ylang, amber, benzoin, sandalwood, vetiver, vanilla, musk


  BATACUDA will be available globally in sizes 50 &100 ml Eau de Toilette


  Jesus del Pozo, the fashion designer of glamorous Spanish designs and spectacular runaway shows in Madrid, Spain passed away on August 13, 2011. I came to know Mr. del Pozo through his work in perfumery which the creations of the HALLOWEEN collection and other globally known fragrances developed during the years.
  
  Mr. del Pozo will be remembered for his sensational ability to connect style and people through elegant fashions and his love for fragrances. Mr. del Pozo graced us with one more fragrance before his death, the launch of HALLOWEEN FEVER (20ll) a youthful and modern version that captures the glamour of New York  City with intricate details of the skyline on the bottle.   

 Thank you Jesus del Pozo for giving us all your lifetime of artistry that made us all smile and relish in your talent forever.

*Review of HALLOWEEN FEVER EAU DE PARFUM can be found in the September 16, 2011 issue of Fragrance Belles-Lettres: The Magazine.

  My passion for perfumes leads me to my other passion for books, especially books that celebrate a diversity in culture and in October 2011, a new book will be released that can be read while wearing L'Artisan Parfumeur new fragrance BATACADA that originates in Rio de Janiero.

 BRAZILIAN STYLE by Armand Limander and published by Assouline is described as "a curated tour, of the most important symbols of modern and traditional Brazil".
   
 The author is News/Features Director for W Magazine. This book features a fascinating journey through pictures from fashion and design to art and architecture.  

  BRAZILIAN STYLE will be available in October 2011 by Assouline publishing.

  To pre-order go to www.assouline.com

BRAZILIAN STYLE is a Hardcover with Jacket; 208 pages; $65.00

    A Perfume made from Icelandic glacial water?
  Yep! EFJ ( Eyjafjalljokull) by Gydja (prounced gith-e-ya) is a "classic, spicy light and fresh fragrance". EFJ Eau de Parfum is made from pure glacial water from Eyjafjalljokull and every bottle comes from a small lava rock from the volcano.
 
 The company Gydja Collection is an Icelandic luxury fashion brand established in 2007. EFJ is an exotic scent inspired by Icelandic nature and the featured notes are citrus, vanilla, roses and bergamot.

 Gydja Collection will launch an upcoming eau de parfum for men.

The NATURAL BRAND

 Indie brand SOIVOHLE (pronounced see-vo) created by owner and perfumer, Liz Zorn has recently launched two new fragrances for men, Transcendental Musc and Rivertown Road.
 Transcendental Musc is a "refreshing blend of citrus, orange flower and champaca with an underlying sheer musc".  

 Rivertown Road is a "complex yet modern Bay Rum Fougere with Seville Lavender absolute, violets, spice, amber,  patchouli, frankincense, ambergris and soft woods". 

 Ms, Zorn exquisitely makes all of her scents that seem so complex to create seem so easy and always leaves the wearer of the scent simply captivated.

 Not only did Ms. Zorn launch two new fragrances this year but coming soon all fragrance enthusiasts of Liz Zorn will be able to make their very own perfume at the Scentual Artistry studio in Cincinnati, Ohio.

What could be better than having an expert perfumer help you create your very own fragrance. I personally cannot wait to hear more and take part in this magical journey in the Midwest (USA).

The word "belles lettres" is a French phrase meaning "beautiful or "fine writing. Since this is a term to describe a category of writing, this will pertain to my passion about fragrances. I will review niche,natural, artisan and designer perfumes from all over the world. I write with passion but will use my journalistic skills that I obtained in college. Not only will I feature fragrances but I will feature new books on fragrances/perfumes, fragrance events and interview authors and perfumers.


I hope you take this journey with me and begin your own passion for the ART OF PERFUMERY!
