FRAGRANCE REVIEWS & NEW LAUNCHES


                                     A ROSE IS A ROSE


  Well not really. Take note but to what I am saying not the fragrance notes in ROSE flash Perfume Roll-On, the new fragrance by award-winning perfumer, Andy Tauer.

  Tauer created ROSE flash in his own image but creating a complete rose scent, not bits and pieces from other scents to create this. So, I am simply saying and Mr. Tauer is saying there are NO notes to reveal.

 Tauer stated on his website and I am paraphrasing that this is the first fragrance from the flash collection. It is meant to be fun and shared.

It seems that Mr.Tauer wants to keep ROSE flash rather simple but there is nothing simple about a rose. It is the Queen of all flowers and I am quite sure Mr. Tauer took this matter into consideration. In fact, Mr. Tauer states that ROSE flash is the most luxurious fragrances that he has created.

This is not to say that he hasn't composed other rose scented fragrances in the Classic and Homages collection that were not done without tremendous skill and artistic persuasion but I feel we are going to be hearing a lot about ROSE flash during the FIFI AWARDS.

If you are truly into rose scented fragrances, try these other creations by Tauer Perfumes such as No.06 Incense Rose, No.08 Une Rose Chypree and No.10 Une Rose Vermeille.

 ROSE flash is really reasonably priced for such as luxurious perfume but there is limitations on the amount of them sold only in Switzerland and the US for logistic reasons only.

 ROSE flash comes in a 10 ml roll-on bottle with simple packaging.

 It is ONLY available at www.tauerperfumes.com

 What I love about a rose is it is never out of style and the perfect fit for ALL seasons. So, I will indulge in this luxury item because Andy Tauer is one of the most respected perfumers of our time.

                                            The QUEEN of Brooklyn

  Bond No.9 is a New York City perfumer created by founder and owner, Laurice Rahme.
This perfumery creates scents with names of them that explore that vast and diverse neighborhoods of New York City. 'The city that never sleeps'.

 In September a new scent was launched to honor the most diverse neighborhood in New York City with QUEENS Eau de Parfum.

 According to Bond No.9, the borough of Queens (New York) is the most "ethnically diverse place on earth:.

 Not only is QUEENS dedicated to the diverse neighborhood but it was meant to acknowledge Queen Catherine of Braganza who is the wife of King Charles II of England.

 Bond No.9 perfumery is worldwide, the brand is represented and marketed in 36 countries!

 I remember when I first heard about Bond No.9 and how excited I became reading about all the ideas and plans for this perfumery. Wow, look at it now.

 I always admire, Laurice Rahme's details to the scent, packaging and love of New York and I even admire her more for all the logistics it take to market in 36 countries.

 QUEENS Eau de Parfum is a unisex fragrances that according to the Laurent Le Guernec, perfumer for IFF gives homage to the tuberose.

 So what does QUEENS smell like?

 There is bergamot, cardamom, blackberry; tuberose, champica flower, osmanthus, sandalwood, benzoin, resin, musk and amber

 If you are new to Bond No.9 it comes in many flashing and colorful designs but the bottles are iconic in style and grace. QUEENS comes in a purple bottle on the flacon is a gold rendering of the 1964 World's Fair Unisphere. Which is to represent global interdependence.

QUEENS Eau de Parfum is accompanied with the QUEENS Body Silk. 

So, if you live in Queens, New York why not honor yourself with the scent of the neighborhood!

                                       PATCHOULI OF RWANDA
                               The Fragrance of Peace


   Award-winning perfumery The 7 Virtues launched PATCHOULI OF RWANDA Eau de Parfum Spray in honor of International Day of Peace on September 21, 2014.

  PATCHOULI OF RWANDA is made in partnership with co-operative farmers in Rwanda. Barb Stegemann, founder and owner of The 7 Virtues perfumery works directly with farmers in countries that the collection of fragrances represent.

 All fragrances of The 7 Virtues perfumery are made with the finest essential oils and free of paraben and phthalate. Its vegan that is "Good for the world. Good for your skin".

 PATCHOULI OF RWANDA is a refreshing fragrance for men and women with notes of organic patchouli oil, green hibiscus, red grapefruit, cedar flower and freesia to add a gorgeous sweetness to a woody scent.

 I had an opportunity to get a sample of PATCHOULI OF RWANDA and it is a wonderful and delightful scent that is just simply pretty. The patchouli blends elegantly without a overpowering heavy and deep scent that is known for patchouli.

It is light and airy and can be worn day or night. A great unisex scent that can be enjoyed on the job by employees sitting nearby.

The 7 Virtues perfumery is a remarkable company that is bringing the future of war-torn countries
into a better economy and way of living thanks to Barb Stegemann vision for the world.

The 7 Virtues Beauty Inc. is a Canadian company based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. So, far and I know there is much more to come but Barb Stegemann and company have so far created fragrances honoring Haiti, Afghanistan, The Middle East and Rwanada.

PATCHOULI OF RWANDA comes in a 50ml/1/7 fl oz Eau de Parfum spray and is available online at www.the7virtues.com  or at department stores and fair trade shops.

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.
