Best in Fragrance 2012

                                           MOSS GOWN EAU DE PARFUM
                       The fragrance that brings a unique fairytale to life


    First I have to say Happy New Year 2013 The year of 2012 was an amazing embankment on niche and natural fragrances. It was a year of challenges for me in keeping up with new launches and it was a year of total inspiration for me.

   I look for the year of 2013 to be an equally amazing year with more unique and inspiration fragrances that are called the world finest.

  I am pleased to announce that MOSS GOWN EAU DE PARFUM by Providence Perfume Company receives the title of Fragrance Belles-Lettres Magazine, "FRAGRANCE OF THE YEAR HONOR".

  When I received the sample of Moss Gown in the mail from owner and natural perfumer, Charna Ethier, I was simply spellbound by the beautiful advertisement that was enclosed in the magazine. The big glossy card that had the most beautiful model holding a huge bottle of Moss Gown Eau de Parfum was a winner in itself. I sent an email to Charna expressing my delight in the art and craft of such a glorious package  and that I knew the scent had to be that much more appealing.

 The inspiration behind Moss Gown Eau de Parfum is taken from a book, "Moss Gown" by Robert H Hooks. Moss Gown is actually a dress that was designed by a witch and Charna creates a fragrance around this story. It beckons the aroma that makes this fairytale so believable and the girl in this story named Candace, like Cinderella finds contemptment in the end.

 Moss Gown Eau de Parfum when worn takes you through all the steps that Candace experiences. It is the joy of wearing this fragrance and in the very end Candace reaps the awards in life because of her good heart and blessings bestowed upon her.

 Moss Gown setting in the book is in the deep south. Charna brilliantly composed the notes that would comprise of the deep south sometime ago. It gives the warmth of a beautiful day shimmering with colorful flowers and smells of a mild nature. Not quick and abrupt.

I followed the story through Moss Gown Eau de Parfum. I understood the plot and I further understood that to create a natural botanical scent..one must understand the history.

Charna Ethier
Once the entire plot was laid out, Charna molded the characters into being and placed each one in their proper place. Candace's jealous sisters received their just do and Moss Gown Eau de Parfum became an original, a prize and a fragrance that I will always remember Providence Perfume Company creating.

It will tell the story over and over again but with each drop from the bottle, it will give me a new outlook for 2013 and beyond.

Congratulations to Charna Ethier for a job well done!

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!

Fragrance Belles-Lettres Magazine is a division of Noblesse Luxe Publication.
