                                                       Clique by Roble'
                                   A Chef's Haute Gourmand Fragrance Recipe



 
   I was invited to New York a year ago by beautypress.com to view an original and unique fragrance designed by a chef. Not just any chef but Celebrity Chef Roble' Ali, owner of the catering company Roble' & Co. in New York and his cult following reality show, Chef Roble' & Co on the cable network Bravo (NBC).

  Unfortunately, I could not go to New York for this golden opportunity but I got a second chance to view a creation in perfumery first ever by a chef that displays several mouthwatering menu courses in a fragrance thanks to www.scentbird.com for their generosity in sending me Clique by Roble' in their chic reusable case.

  Clique by Roble' is an eau de parfum that highlights ingredients from Chef Roble's signature recipes.

  This fragrance can be enjoyed not just by the lucky few whom enjoyed delicious cuisines by Chef Roble' & Co, but Clique by Roble' was designed with Firmenich Senior Perfumer, Frank Voelkl for over a year to capture the perfect balance of scents from his favorite culinary creations according to Chef Roble' for all to enjoy wearing!

 Well, in my opinion this "Fragrance Recipe" is the peak of perfection and I give you fair warning, the scent will enhance your taste bud by a 100% capacity!

 So, the question is how do you take a cuisine of favorite recipes like a "Chupacabra" cocktail which incorporates a taste of citrus and a "French Toast Crunch Dessert" that is a sensuous dessert into a fragrance?

 First it takes a great perfumer like Frank Voelkl and a top chef to brainstorm an innovation that gives a gourmand scent new meaning.

 Clique by Roble' tops off with blood orange and a zesty chipotle pepper. The "Fragrance Recipe" is starting with the "Chupacabra" cocktail. It reveals the continuous citrus scent of lime. As with any fragrance, floral scents are added and this scent comes with the heady scent of jasmine for the middle note along with the sweetness of violet, tuberose and iris that captures the aroma of the "French Toast Crunch Dessert".

 My personal weakness is desserts, so I read the recipe of the "French Toast Crunch Dessert" and fell in love with the ingredients. I thought of it as an upscale cereal with the decadence of spicy cinnamon and the gourmand flavor of honey, chocolate and powdered sugar as the base in this fragrance.

 Clique by Roble' is sweet but it is not a sickly sugary scent that would give you a toothache just by smelling it. It is a fragrance for sophisticated women and men who appreciates presentation in a fine fragrance that includes the best of both worlds and that is cuisine and scent.

 I truly enjoyed wearing this scent especially in the summer. On me, the scent lasted so much longer than I think it would in cooler temperatures simply because of the notes involved.

 For me, it lasted seven hours and the scent stayed true without much diminishing of silliage which means the trail of scent left behind by a perfume.

Gourmands are a very popular fragrance industry because it is based on edible notes such as vanilla, spices, honey and chocolate just to name a few. But because this is not your ordinary gourmand scent-its based on a recipe, a"fragrance recipe" that gives it more of a combination of cocktail and dessert and not simply just a dessert or sweet (edible).

Clique by Roble is an eau de parfum and rightly so. It is considered a more expensive fragrance due to its higher amount of aromatic compound. However, I was shockingly surprised that this fragrance is priced only at $59.50 USD available on Amazon and $53.35 USD on evine.com.

This new and refreshing idea in perfumery is revolutionary because it combines the culinary arts with the art of perfumery. I look for innovation in perfumery  that tells a story about the scent. I must say that Clique by Roble' fits the description perfectly.

Clique by Roble' from Brands With Purpose launched in 2014.

Disclosure: Clique by Roble' was given to me as a partnership with www.scentbird.com

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!
