Majaïna Sin by Emilie (Bevierre) Coppermann for The Different Company 2017




Hello New Addicted,

You may have noticed that I’m addicted to Travel Packs and Travel Size. There are a few reasons for this. The major one is that 10-30ml is all I’ll ever need of most fragrances, it is in fact a lifetime supply. Otherwise I like to be able to carry most of my frags on holidays in my carry on luggage*. There is a pleasure too in using up bottles, even a travel feels like an achievement.

Why am I telling you this? Just arrived in the mail this week are a brand new, paid retail because I freaking love it, sent from France The Different Company Travel Set and a bunch of 10ml refills for it. VERY exciting stuff.

Majaïna Sin by The Different Company 2017

Majaïna Sin by Emilie (Bevierre) Coppermann


Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Candied Orange Bigarade, Bergamot, Neroli, Orange Blossom, Madagascar Ginger
Heart: Heliotrope, Orchid, Chestnut Cream, Madagascar Cinnamon, Maple Syrup
Base: Guatemala Tonka Bean, Amber, Sandal Album, Musk, Madagascar Vanilla Gold Extract

Majaïna Sin is part of the l’Esprit Cologne range from The Different Company. I also have the luscious Tokyo Bloom from that series and love it through the mid seasons and warmer months.

Ginger marmalade already backed by a soft focus vanilla is how Majaïna Sin opens for me with cinnamon. Warm and cosy yet not incredibly hefty, as counterpoint we are given an unexpected lightness and lift. Definite nods to bakery but somehow Emilie Coppermann has made it about something more interesting: creamy, spicy, smoky, resinous amber.


Charming is not a word I use often about fragrance but it keeps popping into my mind. We are not present with a groundbreaking, challenging fragrance in Majaïna Sin. It is different to what I have smelled before but not outrageously so. Here I feel like I’ve met an elegant friend that doesn’t overpower while still maintaining their place and adding to the conversation. I can easily imagine someone hugging you while you wear this and thinking, “MMMMMMM.”

The base is dryer and woodier but not by much and the fragrance fades into my skin with average longevity, way better than I expected from the l’Esprit range.


The Different Company has €18/10ml and €120/100ml

*I carry a just in case Wet Pack in my carry on with toothbrush, floss & paste, deodorant, stolen hotel shower gel and lotion, band-aids, sleeping pills, headache tablets, ear buds and a wash cloth. There are always at least 5 travel frags in there too. Also in cary on are spare undies, socks and polo shirt, Kindle, a bunch of cords, spare glasses, house keys and snacks. It usually clocks around 5kg. Even if my luggage doesn’t arrive I’m good.

  1. I currently have Commidity’s Moss and Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon in travel sizes, plus of course a host of sample sizes of various fragrances I can take with me if necessary. This perfume you’ve reviewed sounds lovely. I’ll have to add it to my list to try. And I love your list of things to include in your travel case. Sounds like you have most contingencies covered!


    • Hey Kandice,
      Lovely to see you.
      Elizabeth and James have done some excellent frags. I am yet to tryBourbon but people are raving about it. It too is on my list.
      Having survived most contingencies happily even without the bag full of conveniences I still prefer to be prepared.

  2. I carry an identical pack–especially “Wet Ones” sanitizing wipes, for the possibilty I wind up somewhere with no bathing facilities or just to kill germs! For scent, I usually carry decants, but Solstice Scents has small edp roller-balls, as does Sonoma Scent Studio. House of Matriarch offers small 10 ml lovely sprayers and Serge Lutens has a few travel vaporizers (Fourreau Noir being my favorite), as well as Histoires. The Atelier line has a few scents that I like and are small like Poivre, B. Immortelle. I far prefer small travel sizes now because I have hundreds of decant samples from STC and equal number of bottles, more than I’ll ever use, so now I try to find the smallest quantity of a scent if I really like it. I too experience a great pleasure when I approach the end of a bottle (like I’m not wasteful or a hoarder), unless it’s a rare/discontinued. Then I don’t reach the end!
