                                                     A Rose For You?
                           A Rose For.... by Floris London


   British niche perfumery Floris of London welcomes romance with a new fragrance launched just in time for Valentine's Day. Its called A Rose For... who do you ask? Well that is up to you but A Rose For... is given to you with all the hype of a romantic day in this Oriental rose scent that is composed for women and men.

    A Rose For... is not just for Valentine's Day but for any special occasion. However what makes this fragrance so unique is not just the scent but how you are actively involved in the presentation. 

  Here is a quote from the House of Floris that will tell you exactly how it works!
   
  *To provide the name you'd like written on the bottle, please add a gift message at the "Gift Options" stage of the checkout with the name written in the gift message. We can only accommodate first names, i.e. A Rose for Emily.
  A Rose for… is unique to the possessor, signifying the personal attachment to scent. Defined by no-one, it is truly for you."

  According to the House of Floris, Edward Bodenham perfumer for A Rose For visited Morocco in 2015. He was intrigued by how the rose could interpret and identify its natural origin. So he studied this characteristic in the rose and A Rose For...was born.

Mr. Bodenham beautifully depicted the rose in this fragrance by giving it a warmth that is altogether different with an taste of elegance all its own.

 A Rose For...Eau de Parfum consist of these ingredients. 

Top Note: Darjeeling Tea, Incense
Heart: Red Rose, Tuberose, Orris, Oud
Base: Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Amber, Patchouli, Vanilla, Incense

Available at www.florislondon.com 
160.00 euros

      Eaudemoiselle Rose a la Folie comes in the classic bottle but this time it is pink in color. The scent includes notes of Tanghulu. A Chinese sweet candied hawthorn berries that is similar to the scent of caramelized apples. It continues with tea rose as the heart note and concludes with a note of musk as the base.

                                                 Lolita Lempicka
                                      SWEET Eau de Parfum
                               

    I feel over the hill with the first and original fragrance, Lolita Lempicka Eau de Parfum launched in 1997. It was the gourmand Oriental Floral wrapped together that gave an essence of beauty that words could not explain. It was this fragrance that caught my then fiance's attention. Since that day on our anniversary now almost 16 years that I wear it (if I can save some for the next year). 

  Lolita Lempicka is a fashion designer and perfume creator born in 1954 in  Bordeaux, France. Lolita admired her mother who was a seamstress and as they say the rest is history.

  As I was doing research several months ago, I discovered that Lolita Lempicka was going to launch a new fragrance. Yes, I was more than excited and I had to find out what it was going to be. The name of the fragrance is one simple word but not for a simple fragrance. It's called, "Sweet". 

  This time Lolita Lempicka really took the bite out of the apple with another successful scent that surely take my breath away!

  Sweet Eau de Parfum is the new scent that will transform the way we look at the cherry. It is a scent that is steeped in cherry and a cocoa assemble that is mouth watering from the first note.

  It is composed by award-winning perfumer Anne Flipo. Who is known for creating spellbinding scents that have become cult classics. 

  Let me put it mildly, Sweet is cherry dipped in chocolate that will leave you licking your fingers like scraping the bowl to get the last drop of icing. 

  I contacted the Lolita Lempicka company to find out when I could get my hands on a sample, bottle or anything!  

 But before I tell you where, I need to tell you more about Sweet Eau de Parfum. The packaging is simply and truly is in the eye of the beholder. 

 It starts with a red box decadent to the Lolita Lempicka logo and the gem is inside the box. Take out the bottle and you get an apple shaped curvy, glossy and delicious looking. It is a bold red with golden outlines and the shiny stem of the apple is the sprayer that is a work of art.

The first thought in my mind is that I will never look an apple the same way. To me it was a message of power and motivation as it sat glistening awaiting the first forbidden bite. 

 I get excited about fragrances all the time. Regardless if it is a classic or the latest artisan creation but it is something about Sweet Eau de Parfum that transformed the life of the fragrance industry.

 Lolita Lempicka fragrances is not just an extension of her fashion collection but her perfume collection breathes life into the fragrance industry which gives a new meaning to a piece of fruit...the first fruit of mankind and that was an apple. 

 Now, you ask what is it made with. Glad you asked. The top note is cherry, the heart notes are iris, cocoa absolute and Angelica and the base concludes with musk and cashmeran.

 The tip of the iceberg is that Lolita Lempicka did not miss a beat when it was launched because during a limited time, Sweet Eau de Parfum (50 ml) and a spray bottle (7 ml) is available at www.nocibe.fr

 This is a French beauty website that can be translated into English. This exclusive collection only found on nocibe,fr comes with a very cute box that resembles a mail slot and it is elegantly called "Lolita Lempicka Sweet Words box Valentine". 


If you are seeking an extraordinary gift for Valentine's Day this would be it! If you only want the bottle and you are located in the US. You can purchase it at www.parfumslolitalempicka.com

It is available as a 30 ml in the US.

Sweet Eau de Parfum chose the lovely actress and model, Elle Fanning to be the spokesperson for this scent and I think she is the perfect choice. Sweet is a young and vibrant fragrance but it can be enjoyed by every woman at any age. 



  Note: I am so serious about this Sweet Eau de Parfum that I had my face photoshopped under a Kitty Andrew's hat (www.kittyandrews.com) with a bottle of Sweet Eau de Parfum that was also photoshopped.

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!
