Libertine Parfumerie: Amouage Bracken Man + JHaG Mmmm…

Heya Mass-tige Frag Hags,

Last week Ainslie Walker & I had a day out together seeing the Map Of The Heart range, catching up with Bronwyn of Gascoigne & King Candles (where I did some Christmas shopping) and seeing our mate Paige at Libertine Parfumerie.  Paige took half an hour out of her extremely busy day to show us the newest stuff in store. There was quite a bit but two particularly stood out for me as excellent.

New at Libertine Parfumerie

Bracken Man by Olivier Cresp + Fabrice Pellegrin for Amouage 2016

bracken-man-amouage-fragranticaFragrantica

Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Bergamot, lemon, cypress, lavender, nutmeg, cloves
Heart: Geranium, sandalwood, cedar, cinnamon
Base: Patchouli, musk

A old school swirl of citrus & herbs leads you into a plush spiced lavender that grows creamier and more comfortable as it wears. If Don Draper from Mad Men could wear something made today that is totally reminiscent of yesteryear but done with a depth and finesse not seen back then I reckon he would choose Bracken Man. It skips all the sweet tropes of the style and gives me dry, warm stylised macho-ness. I would follow someone wearing this in the street or a mall just to revel in the sillage. MMMM

Libertine has $399/100ml

Mmmm… by Juliette Has A Gun 2016

Libertine gives these featured accords:
Top: Vanilla,  jasmine
Heart: Neroli essence, tonka bean
Base: Ambroxan

When I first spied Mmmm… I was ready to hate it instantly because of the stupid name and the pink on the bottle which reminds me of cough syrup. BLEAUGH!

Silly me, it’s bloody fun and fabulous. The vanilla that opens is headily offset by the clean jasmine and warm tonka. Ambrosian has its flirty now you smell me, now you don’t game of hide & seek so sometimes I’m smelling bakery and others sweaty love fest bodies. Super nice work JHaG.

Libertine has $209/100ml

Libertine Parfumerie site has an extraordinary range and FREE AUSTRALIAN SHIPPING over $100. They are always great supporters of APJ and we love them. Also you get a BUNCH of samples with every order.

    My favourite JHAG is the beautiful Moon Dance. I like the sound of Mmm…! Thank you for the giveaway, as always. Follow by email. 🙂

  2. Sandra says:

    Dear Portia, DNEM – what a fun read today.
    I thought Mmmm was great fun too and would happily wear it. Bracken sounds interesting.
    Have a wonderful weekend. Sandra xoxo

  3. Neva says:

    Oh no, again something I could like…
    My favourite Amouage is Epic and I like JHAG’s Anyway.
    I follow APJ by email and thanks very much for the giveaway.

    My favorite Juliette has a gun? Well, I like Vengeance Extreme
    Citizen Queen
    Midnight Oud
    Calamity J. but don’t love them enough for a full bottle.
    Same with Amouage. I have tried Opus II
    Opus III
    Honour Woman
    Lyric Woman with Lyric Woman being a like but not a love.

  5. Marion says:

    Well. I bought a bottle of Lyric but wish I’d bought Epic. I love Interlude (Woman, BTW), but truely adore desert island Sunshine. My fave JHAG is Midnight Oud, which means it’s probably not all that oudy…email

  6. MikasMinion says:

    My favorite Amouage? Geez. I guess it would be Epic, but Memoir and Jub 25 would be close runners up and I love Ubar and Gold when I’m in the right mood. My favorite JHAG is easier since Gentlewoman is the only one I have liked much. Haven’t sampled them all, though.
    I follow via RSS and Bloglovin’

  7. Jyotsna says:

    I’ve only tested Epic Woman. I like Lady Vengeance. I’d love both these samples I think.
    I follow by email.

  8. Ellen M. says:

    I follow by email. I like Dia and Ubar from Amouage. It would be wonderful to be able to try both samples. Thank you for the draw.

  9. Olivia says:

    I follow by email. My favorite from Amouage is Interlude, of which I have a sample and hope to get a FB. I’ve never liked honey that much, but this one just does it for me. That’s how you know a well-made scent.

  10. Patty Pong says:

    E-mail follower….favorite from Juliette Has a Gun is…Not a Perfume (yes really) 🙂

  11. Claudia says:

    Epic smells like heaven, I think. Thanks for the draw! I follow by email

  12. Undina says:

    I follow by e-mail, WordPress and Bloglovin (does it count for 3 entries? 😉 )

    Amouage is one of my most favorite brands: I love, own and wear Ubar, Gold, Dia, Lyric, Memoir and Epic. Beloved is nice but probably won’t go beyond the decant I have.

    From JHAG I have just a couple of decants for the scents that I like – Miss Charming and Calamity J. I’m not sure if I ever need more but we’ll see.

    thanks for the draw

    My favorite Amouage is Gold for Women. I follow APJ by email and FB.

  15. pats133 says:

    My favourite is Amouage Opus III – never tried any JHAG but have heard much about this house. I follow by email and FB also – thanks for the drawing.

  16. Janine Dello says:

    I remember when I trialled my first JHAG many years ago. I still keep Lady Vengeance and Citizen Queen on my dresser. I always get compliments when wearing CQ, so I guess it agrees with me, and I wear LV for myself whilst swanning around at home! Followed you by email for ages, love all your posts. x

  17. lena says:

    I’ve only tried one fragrance from JHAG – Calamity J – and none from Amouage, so I guess that makes Calamity J my favourite!
    Thank you for the draw; I follow by email.

  18. Koyel says:

    It is possible that I am too late, but if I am not, I follow by e-mail. My favorite JHAG is Miss Charming! I think my favorite Amouage might be Sunshine? Though I’ve yet to fall in love with something of theirs.
