FRAGRANCE REVIEW


                                    MOON BLOOM
                            The Romantic Fragrances

  I have a new found love with the tuberose flower thanks to MOON BLOOM by Hiram Green.

 Tuberose wasn't quite the scent I enjoyed as a young girl. I felt it was too old for me. I remember older members of the church always wore tuberose and tea rose fragrances. Too me it was a toss up of which one smelled the worse, but I am so happy to have discovered MOON BLOOM.

It is a soft and yet crisp scent that is clean and creamy. The warm scent gathers around with the aroma that stays still and comforting.

MOON BLOOM is 100% natural which makes it so unique. I have smelled within the last year tuberose laced fragrances but it screamed, synthetic.

Mr. Green, founder of Scent Systems in London. A most prestigious perfumery of niche scents discovered that some of the finer fragrances on the market were created with synthetics.

So, he looked for other ways of creating fragrances the all-natural way and he has taken the world by storm with MOON BLOOM.

MOON BLOOM is composed of absolutes which makes all the difference from other fragrance oil perfumes.

An absolute is as true as picking the plant from its roots. It is the extract of that plant that gives it that natural scent that I enjoy having in a fragrance.


MOON BLOOM gave me visions of the tropics with sweet smelling sandy beaches covered with coconuts.

There was almost like a banana-like scent that I smelled after the dry-down.

Hiram Green is the nose behind the name and I look for more wonderful fragrances. For this to be his first signature scent, truly tells me that Mr. Green is taking niche perfumery to a much more higher level than I ever anticipated.

Notes: tuberose absolute, jasmine absolute, ylang ylang, coconut, leafy green, spices and resins.

MOON BLOOM is an Eau de Parfum and available for 135 Euros for a 50ml with a classic pump atomizer and 5ml travel atomizer refillable for 25 Euros.

Thank you Mr. Green for providing the sample for review. -Felicia M. Hazzard, Editor-in-Chief

FRAGRANCE EVENT
Editorial 

                               ELEMENTS SHOWCASE
                                    Exhibits Grace:Red Carpet Style

To all fragrance fans of Elements Showcase, I hear all the buzzing about tomorrows debut. I know it will be just as grand and informative as the years before.

If you have not heard of Elements Showcase, then you are in for a treat. It is held twice a year in the fall and winter at the Skylight West in New York City.It is the premier for industry leaders, buyers and brands who come to seek what the perfume industry as to offer.

Elements Showcase in my opinion is one of the most thoughtful and innovative curated fragrance trade shows in the fragrance industry.

It showcases indie, artisanal and natural perfumeries who might not otherwise have media attention to this magnitude.

I am truly grateful and I haven't told this to the founders of Elements Showcase, Ulrich Lang, Jeff Lawson and Fredrick Bouchardy of Joya. It gives perfumer bloggers like myself the opportunity to come and explore and meet perfumers and designers firsthand to get answers and on the spot interviews.

Elements Showcase has gained all the respect from perfume industry giants that indicates, it is about time that niche perfumery is discovered and should gain exposure just like any other fragrance showcase.

Elements Showcase has expanded to Dubai in the Middle East. This is the exposure that gives niche perfumery a global opportunity to be a part of a network of suppliers and venues that are looking for the finest and creative fragrances to market.

It gives perfumers that edge to not just look at showcasing in the United States but being known worldwide and increasing the customer base.

I am truly excited more than ever about the niche market. This certainly justifies the higher price for these fragrances because of so much that goes into the scent itself, the packaging, the marketing and the perfumer representing the brand at such showcases as Elements Showcase.

When in New York, go to Skylight West 500 West 36th Street. It will be held Monday, August 19th and Tuesday, August 20th from 9:00am-7pm.

Usually registration is recommended but I am sure there will be no problem getting indoors.

Visitors will be catered with refreshments and chocolates and fine teas while they feast their eyes on the spectacular creations from some of the world's finest representatives of artisan perfumery.

Enjoy!!

Late Summer Luxuries:The Natural Way

Fragrance Reviews


                 HADALI ORGANIC CARIBBEAN SKINCARE
                                    Oil for Body & Hair- The French Style



    Well, although summer is here but it is coming to a rapid closure. I couldn't think of a better way to express my thanks to a rather mild summer-not too hot and not too cold (at least in the midwest).

   I needed to mention some luxury finds that puts the crest of summer at its best.

   One of these finds is by Hadali Organics Caribbean Skincare. It is a hair, facial and body collection of highly organic ingredients that are manufactured in France.

  So, what is so Caribbean about it? Well the answer to that is the native coconut oil and cashew nut essence in this collection that smells and provides an island-like substance of tranquility and abundance of earthly goods by land and by sea.

 My ultimate favorite is the Hadali-Beauty Fine Oil for Body and Hair. It is a 100ml/3.3 fluid ounce at $60.00 USD.

 It is truly a silky liquid that glides on the body with an absolutely lush scent of the tropics and the sillage is long lasting and quite vibrate at times, especially when the sun is at its brightest.

I love how it moisturizes the skin without leaving a greasy feel.

The bottle is beautifully decorated with a crescent of leaves and three black silhouette birds on the edges to give it that extra special glamour. Also, it is a lovely yellow-honey color oil that glistens inside the rectangular bottle. This is a treasure in itself.

Hadali means "sun". This really gives meaning to this product because it especially works wonders after the shower and as a makeup remover.

The essence of Hadali Organic Caribbean Skincare is made of 100% of the total ingredients are of natural origin and 99.5% of the total ingredients proceed from certified organic farming.

So, not only does it look and smell good with luxe packaging it is also excellent for your skin and good for the earth.

This collection is offered with products such as a body scrub, body moisturizer, anti-aging facial cream and facial moisturizer.

Don't let summer breeze by with trying. It will cast your cares away "Caribbeanly".

                               Moroccan Mud
                       It only comes from Africa

 There are many products that treat the face and body but you only want the best. My next discovery comes all the way from Africa, north Africa to be exact.

 It comes from the mountains of Morocco and it is simply called Moroccan Mud. This is not your typical mud from a spa. It comes from Morocco with minerals and proteins that coat the skin giving it a clearer and bright appearance.

I do not use this everyday but at least twice a week I use it on my face and next. This reddish-brown mud is comes in a powder form but it can be mixed with water, milk and honey and then the consistency becomes a paste.

I use it with water with a two-three drops of organic orange blossom honey. I smooth it over my face and under the eye area. Make sure not to get it in your eyes. Cover your entire face with it and your neck too.

Moroccan Mud can be used entirely on the body. I normally wait at least 4 minutes to dry on the face and about 10 minutes to dry on the entire body. So you may want to read a magazine while you wait for it to do so.  

Afterwards go in the shower and let the water wash of the mud. It will take a few minutes and a little help on your part by washing it off with your hands if you are less than a patient person.

Once the mud is completely washed off. You may use your choice of soap or body washes.

Your skin will feel tingly but smooth, clearer and extremely clean!

Ladies, your moisturizer will glide on and your cosmetics will appear brighter because your skin is extremely smooth which will produce a better appearance.

I absolutely love this product!

                                     ANU ESSENTIALS
The Perfume Collection: Created with the essence of Earth
               

 It gives me great pleasure to introduce Anu Essentials Natural Perfumery. Anu is an emerging perfumer who has created her first collection of three natural perfumes that uses the very essences that is all and good.

I remember seeing a photo posted by Anu Prestonia, owner and perfumer of Anu Essentials with her in a natural perfumery class taught by the master perfumer, Mandy Aftel of Aftelier Perfumes.

Soon after seeing that photo, Anu Prestonia featured her natural perfumery.  

I knew that something special and wonderful would be revealed and when I got my sample of the collection, I was right!

I was first introduced to Anu Essentials by getting samples of her hair oils. I was extremely impressed and was compelled to write a review about them. So, I knew for a fact that Anu's passion for natural products would be as wonderful as her collection of hair, skin and body products.

This is a true story, after receiving the sample collection of the perfumes, I misplaced them. I looked everywhere for them. I felt bad and I did not want to tell Anu I lost them.

After several months I recently found them. I was so happy because now I could write the review. To my surprise, the perfumes smelled even better. The sillage lasted longer and the aromas were heightened. I keep my samples of perfumes in a air tight container in the basement where it is cool. So, this should tell you that keeping your fragrances in a cool place will prolong your scents.

I wore each one of these scents for several days and read the description of each to keep in mind what I need to seek from each one.

The first scent I wore is SITA. I loved the idea of the Venusian Goddess is to be released upon usage. Awesome! I differently smelled the clove ooze in a deep spicy and majestic fashion that intertwined nicely with the rose otto. This is a smoldering and earthly created scent that speaks universally. This scent is captivating because it surrounds expensive organic spices and it seem with little effort, Anu arranged them so implicitly but I know this is hard work.

 MEADOW LARK perfume graces the image of the healing heart. It brings closure and stability in the most compassionate form.

 Meadow Lark gives another version of the rose with Bulgarian rose alba and a sweeping scent of sandalwood. My experience with the clary sage is deepened momentarily until after awhile the clementine lifts the spirit.

I truly enjoyed this lighter version because it was during the day-partically a raining day and Meadow Lark waft with the ability to out shine the rainstorm.

SEA SCAPE, this fragrance is bringing the ocean to you. One of my most favorite heady scents is jasmine and Sea Scape gives two different kinds!

The fragrance of water with rushing waves best describes Sea Scape. It is refreshing and once again this third scent comes with its own Bulgarian rose scent.

Seaweed and violet leaf are perfect depiction of the sea with corals roving in the water.

This is a summer scent that will keep you daydreaming at the beach.

Each fragrances is priced at $85.00 USD.

This Summer the Scent is Peach

FRAGRANCE REVIEW


                           FRAGRANCE MEETS FASHION
                             Mousseline Peche Eau de Toilette
                        A Collaboration of Artists

  I may not have mentioned this lately but when I purchase a sample or bottle of perfume or receive it in the mail. I do not immediately wear it. I love to savor and relish in the complete package in which it was given to me.

 For me it is not just the scent but the entire presentation it arrives in. I love fragrances that tell a story. What is the perfumer telling me...why was it created and what is the ending of the story-from beginning to the end.

There maybe days or weeks that I try on a fragrance and walk in it, run win it, sit quietly in it or go shopping in it. How did it smell on me, how did it feel on my skin. Well this is where this review begins.

 I received a sample of Mousseline Peche Eau de Toilette in the mail sometime ago. I usually received samples from Charna Ethier. However, this time it was different.

Charna was not just sending me a sample to review but she was sending me a chain of events so to speak.

Moussseline Peche Eau de Toilette, is this  summer's blockbuster of scents comes with another person attached to it.

Mr. Jonathan Joseph Peters, a fashion designer and guest of the ever popular, Project Runway, one of my favorite television shows collaborated with a great perfume artist of this century to show us that he is not afraid of a natural fragrance and how her creations of scents speaks to us.

I learned that Jonathan and Charna knew each other for many years and there was definitely a connection years ago that led to a fragrance collaboration that really spoke to me.

Now, how I felt about it. The scent of peach I undestand is an obsession for Charna, so for me whatever Charna says is best...I follow. I sat on my sofa in the living room and sprayed Mousseline Peche on my left hand. I took in this sweet harmony of peach but when I rubbed my hand across the scent, my skin automatically became smoother.

You would think I was talking about a hand lotion. I don't know how Charna does it but it created a fragrance that made my skin softer and the texture took on another layer as if I had skin of a new born.

This to me is speechless. I repeated this method again and the results were exactly the same. No, this was not a game of chance. It is exactly as Charna created, the

"softest, sheerest peach mousseline de soie."

Mousseline Peche Eau de Toilette is a LIMITED EDITION fragrance but to me it is a scent for ALL SEASONS.

The remarkable undertones of harmonious symphonic pleasures gave me an immediate look into what it would have been to be at Ravinia Park of concerts in Chicago's upscale northshore community.

A breathtaking aroma that is mild, charismatic and I truly almost forgot that is a "fashion" fragrance.

This scent made me curious to see who really is Jonathan Joseph Peters.  I went to www.jonathanjosephpeters.com and within the first few minutes of reading, I knew the kind of person Mr. Peters truly is.

He said thank you, "thank you, thank you" three times to insure that he greatly appreciates you taking time out visiting his website. He has ties to Providence, Rhode Island and thanked friends and family because without them, he would not be where he is today.

Jonathan remembered Charna during his successful years as a designer and recognized not only friendship is the key but her phenomenal talent as a perfumer would bring him evermore success.

I totally agree with Jonathan's  decision to collaborate with Charna. They are truly a winning team not just for their sakes but for all of us to enjoy and bask in the glory of a beautiful fragrance that comes from the heart.

Notes of Mousseline Peche Eau de Toilette...

Middle Notes: Peach Accord, Ylang Ylang
Base Notes: Tonka, Vetiver, Spun Sugar (Natural Maltol)
