              ASIAN TALES:The Art of Writing through Fragrance & Serenity
                                                    

Monet Bridge Lily Pond
 
   It brings me great delight to review the latest and most extravagant collection by the house of Kilian.
I received my deluxe samples of ASIAN TALES by Kilian yesterday. It arrived in the most distinguished packaging of black and silver.

   I was so impressed with the story behind two fragrances that define and relish in the history of Chinese Calligraphy and the most stable and serene plant of the bamboo.

   I wondered how owner and founder of "Kilian" himself Kilian Hennessey could top his previous collection with the most climatic ending to a novel of fragrances with "Sweet Redemption" that has become one of the most beloved fragrances of all times thanks to the sensational perfumer, Calice Becker.
 
  ASIAN TALES comes to me in a quiet and serene statement. It isn't bold but it holds it own with delicate and sweet cascades of dripping leaves of bamboo with intricate drops of harmonious notes of nature, while sipping a cup of white tea. I was able to compose a letter from the heart and soul that makes writing simply spiritual with sweet and poetic water lilies floating in a pond.

  ASIAN TALES consist of two elegant and divine fragrances which are BAMBOO HARMONY and WATER CALLIGRAPHY.
  
  These scents take you into another world of ancient Chinese history that books can only provide a glimpse of serenity but experiencing and wearing these scents at a quiet moment will give you an actual scene that you see and feel.

BAMBOO HARMONY comes with notes of bergamot, bigarde and neroli, white tea leaves, mimosa, spices, fig leaves and oak moss

WATER CALLIGRAPHY enhances BAMBOO HARMONY as I used it in a combining mode and WATER CALLIGRAPHY gives you all the essences and notes of grapefruit, raseda blossom, jasmine sambac, magnolia, cardamom and vetiver.

  This joint venture is the beginning of a beautiful oasis and another novel of scents to reach beyond the obvious but it nurtures your entire being with a soft and dewy scent that gives you that spring renewal of quietness, pure water, plants and most importantly- peace.

    TasteTV and The Taste Awards proudly presents the First Annual (1st Annual) ARTISAN FRAGRANCE SALON. A feast for the eyes, nose and mouth. This unique approach to perfumery comes from TasteTV approach to the creation of fine cuisine...specializing in chocolate (chocolat).

    This presentation is the first of its kind to include fragrance as the main cuisine centered around natural and niche perfumes.

    ARTISAN FRAGRANCE SALON is a must for all fragrance aficionados, fanatics, buyers and journalist (like myself) to encounter on the West Coast. Yes, this elegant and extravagant artisan affair will take place in San Francisco, California.

   This unique event will house the best in the niche industry such as Yosh, Ineke, Sarah Horowitz, Sonoma Scent Studio, Velvet & Sweet Pea's Perfumery, Artemisia, Leila Castle Botanical Fragrance and many more.

  Tickets for this event will be on sale starting May 16, 2012, so don't delay because I know tickets for this showcase will sell out!!

  ARTISAN FRAGRANCE SALON will debut on July 8, 2012 at the Gallery 4n5 on 863 Mission Street from 11am to 4pm.

   So,  if you want to be a part of the "in crowd" and be the first to experience a new fresh approach to fine fragrance, art, wine and conversation, then experience perfumery from the world's finest designers and creators in the artisan and niche category of perfumery.

                               A Great Perfumer Passes Away

   

   British perfumer, Alec Lawless founder of Essentially Me and author of several books died in a crash.
Essentially Me was honored last year (2011) with a UK FIFI AWARD nomination and finalist for the highly successful and beautiful natural perfume, EMPRESS OF INDIA.

  I got to know Mr. Lawless last year through email discussions and recognizing his passion for natural perfumes. He was such a wonderful and nice man and this news deeply saddens me.

 EMPRESS OF INDIA perfume showcased a spirit of freedom and historical culture aspects that makes it a true masterpiece that truly embraced me with the first sniff from the bottle.

 I will always remember Mr. Lawless's numerous classes focusing on the making of natural perfumes and how much he gave of himself.

Fragrance Belles Lettres Magazine salutes a great perfumer with a purpose that goes beyond the fragrance.

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!
