Val the Cookie Queen
Remember I did that radio interview back in March? I loved doing it so much that I asked the radio station powers-that-be if I could do my own show. And they said sure, why not? So here we are. This coming Friday 7th June at 18:00 Central European Time will be my first broadcast. I will have an hour at the controls, forcing my music on an unsuspecting public. Well let’s be honest here, I will play the music and do the talking and there will be someone with me doing the technical stuff, theory being that I can learn as I go along. After three or four shows I will be on my own. First Friday of each month. “Baking Bad with the Cookie Queen.” I will share my SOTShow each time, without naming the perfume house because I am not allowed. Talking of perfume I bought the 20ml travel size of IUNX Talc.
IUNX Talc EdT
by Olivia Giacobetti 2019.
A blind buy. Sometimes you just have to take a gamble. I have two good perfume friends, and the IUNX Talc came highly recommended by them both. As friends of Vero’s they know what I might like. IUNX fragrances are only available from the IUNX boutique in France, but they will ship out of the country if you email them privately. No samples available.
IUNX, (pronounced “iyonks” as far as I know), is the line from Olivia Giacobetti. Included in her portfolio of earlier works are Diptyque’s Philosykos, Malle`s En Passant, L’Artisan’s Dzing and a host of others.
Rice absolute, white orris powder, white cedar wood essential oil, ambrette seeds
A silver tinged, exquisite iris opening. Threads of violet in the outset, leading into the musky base, continual swirls of powdery rice and orris that you cannot quite touch. The cedar wood and ambrette keep it from becoming a powdery scent, as well as enhancing the beautiful sensuality of a warm body. Graceful and elegant, it needs to be worn on bare skin.
Do read Colognoisseur’s review. I am looking forward to working my way through the rest of the IUNX collection.
What a week in football. European Champions. YNWA.
