New Niche Perfumery


 SHAY &  BLUE PERFUMERY OF LONDON
                                  Brings Realization to Perfumery

   

    Former  executive to Chanel and Jo Malone of London brands has established his own fragrance line in London.

    Mr. Dom De Vetta founder of Blue & Shay Perfumery created a fragrance line of six scents that is an inspiration of the great classic perfumes of old.

   This could not have been possible without a  nose and with this being said, Mr. De Vetta found one of the best in the industry. Ms. Julie Masse', a young and pretty lady who created these inspirational classic perfumes using real flowers! These six scents also are composed with fruits and spices.

   SHAY & BLUE PERFUMERY was just established in 2012 and it houses so many products such as candles made from the finest wax and gift collections for men, women and both.

    The blue stripped boxes packaging truly is a representation of elegance, warmth and class.

     Mr. De Vetta spared no expense in creating a world class perfumery.

     This is just an announcement but I plan on writing a review of all six fragrances of Atropa Belladonna, Blood Oranges, Amber Rose, Sicilian Limes, Suffolk Lavender and Almond Cucumber.

      I look forward to hearing more from SHAY & BLUE and Welcome to the world of niche perfumery.

NEW FRAGRANCE ANNOUNCEMENT


                                               BABYLON NOIR
                                         A Devilscent Perfume Project




   Valentine's Day is truly my most favorite day of the year. Retail stores embraced the various shades of reds and pinks for a delightful day full of love and devotion. But how about a little darkness here and there.

   For the daring lovers that are into fabulous fragrances, I have just the one you are going to love.
BABYLON NOIR ( Dark Babylon) by Opus Oils and owner and perfumer, Kedra Hart.

  I have been most privileged to experience Ms. Hart's supreme talent first hand. The combination of rich and exotic fragrance notes with creative and spellbinding blends are simply divine.

 Not only do you get a rare scent but you get a beautiful LIMITED EDITION Artisan Bottle that is adorned with vintage lace and fancy feathers.

 It is rarity for me to boast about a scent that I have yet to try but I know the mighty hand of Kedra Hart. No, she does not disappoint. It is out of reach not to create a truly earthy scent filled with room for imagination and filled with the art of perfumery that goes beyond the scale of a perfumer.

I love the way Ms. Hart creates a scent without any inhibitions. She explores uncharted territories that I truly admire.

BABYLON NOIR OFFICIALLY launches on Valentine's Day (February 12, 2013) and it is part of the Devilscent Perfume Project. This is a clever and a most wonderful way of allowing niche perfumers to explore and create fragrances on the edgy side for such an organization and put it on the market to sell.

BABYLON NOIR consists of Indecent Tuberose, Narcotic Peaches, Luscious Lychee, Civet, Smoke and Leather.

To Purchase go to www.opusoils.com

For the Curious order Babylon Noir sample 1 ml for $5.00 USD
For the Anxious order Babylon Noir  1/2 oz Parfum Roll-On for $85.00 USD
For the Romantic order Babylon Noir 1 oz Eau de Parfum Spray for $95.00 USD
For the Adventurer order Babylon Noir 1.7 oz Fancy Atomizer (alcohol only) for $185.00

*Babylon Noir is available in alcohol or fractionated coconut oil.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

ANNOUNCEMENT & REVIEW

                                          The Elements Showcase 2013
            The Showdown of the FIFI Nominations &Winner


   In my estimation it is never easy choosing one winner for the honor of the Indie FIFI award.

   This category of fragrances is like no other because of the dreams, desires, creativity and style that goes into it. These natural born people of the arts cannot be compared with any other in the fragrance industry.

  All of the creations are different, stylish, earthy and always good for mankind especially if it is a natural fragrance.

  However, has it goes and the winner is...

  AMBER OUD By Kilian!

  For you that is new to the niche and natural fragrance industry and wondering who is By Kilian well if you have heard of Hennessey cognac then, Mr. Killian Hennessey is the heir to the Hennessey cognac and the entrepreneur behind By Kilian, a niche perfume line.

  AMBER OUD Eau de Parfum is truly a soft and warm scent. I was surprised to feel this presence from the oud but it is apparent that Mr. Hennessey wanted an overdose of vanilla which comes from Madagascar (North Africa).

  The fusion between the amber and vanilla gives its warmth and sensual vibe that is the main inner tensity of Amber Oud.

 Oud is an ancient raw material that is powerful but created with other notes comes out to be a wonderful comprise.

 Vanilla is the second most expensive spice in the world with saffron being the most expensive works so beautifully with any raw material, absolute or essential oil. Vanilla is my ultimate favorite for its versatility, longevity and endurance.

Killian Hennessey
 I encountered AMBER OUD by requesting a sample. I  got more than just the sample but a wonderful note hand written by Mr. Hennessey on solid black note paper and gold ink that was permanent.

 I can understand it being permanent due to the volume of the announcements sent worldwide.

It started with Dear Friend...

I actually smelled the fragrance from the envelope that it came in with the note card. It filled my fingers with this soft warmth that carried far beyond six hours. Incredible degree of range for a vanilla scent and amber.

This is what I truly smelled, the vanilla but with the oud as a back-up and the amber adding a mysterious notion was beautifully planned and created by award-winning perfumer, Calice Becker.

Calice Becker
AMBER OUD is a beautiful package from the hand-written note that gave me a sense that Kilian Hennessey felt that AMBER OUD was his best creation yet and that he was very proud of it.

Calice Becker who no stranger to big name fragrances before her collaboration with Killian Hennessey.

AMBER OUD is the inspiration from By Kilian which makes the fourth creation of the Arabian Nights collection.

 It became available as of March 2012.

 Ms. Becker has been an adventurous pioneer in evoking and revolutionalizing the By Kilian brand. Prior to this fabulous colloboration, Calice Becker created fashionable fragrances for Avon, Christian Audigier, Dior, Donna Karan, Estee Lauder just to name a few.

AMBER OUD  for women and men is the 2013 Indie FIFI Award winner that was highlighted in a rich and beautifully planned program at the annual ELEMENTS SHOWCASE on January 28-29, 2013 in New York. The Perfume Exhibition that finds each year more and more press, collaborations and events calamoring for the attention of the ELEMENTS SHOWCASE.

The ELEMENTS SHOWCASE is one of the most highly respected organizations giving niche and natural perfumers and designers a platform to showcase their unique and well-deserve recognition in the fragrance industry.

Here is a list of the Indie perfumes that were nominated for 2012.

Congratulations to the By Kilian house for representing a grand fragrance in a unique way.

Congratulations to all the nominees for their spectacular creations that are so memorable. Please keep up the fabulous work and I will be checking you out again.
