Hiccups, Perfume and a Winner

Stress?! Did somebody say STRESS? I am not one for coping well with stress so I have decided to call it hiccups. I am a creature of habit and when I get thrown a curveball or two or twelve, I start to fall apart. Continue reading

Neela Vermeire Creations: Summer Vacation Memories + GIVEAWAY

Hey there APJ! How have you all been doing?

Summer has gone by in a flash here. The schools only have six weeks of vacation which in my mind is too short. That aside, it was a fantastic summer here in the Netherlands with high temperatures and no rain. You see, I love the heat and sunshine.

Neela Vermeire Creations

So, in order to get my yearly fix of heat and sunshine I flew with my son to Atlanta to visit my parents and see family and friends. I decided to travel with a couple of Neela Vermeire Creations perfumes.

Romeo & Juliette by Shakespeare Perfume GIVEAWAY

Hi Lovers Of New!

My mate Thierry from City Perfume has an exclusive range in store currently. It’s the Shakespeare Perfume range and it is seeing like hot cakes. Though the brand is not doing outrageous, challenging or ground breaking fragrances it is making wearable and comfortable scents just a cut above the designer and much of the niche. They have also kept the price under $200 for 100ml, practically a bargain nowadays.

The packaging and bottle design is luxurious and really beautifully thought out. These beauties will make perfect gifts, especially for people who love perfume but haven’t dived right down the rabbit hole yet.

Romeo & Juliette by Shakespeare Perfume

Romeo & Juliette by Shakespeare Perfume City perfume March 2016City Perfume

City Perfume gives these featured accords:
Top: Orange, lemon, bergamot
Heart: Fruits
Base: Amber, white musk, Madagascar vanilla

Romeo & Juliet has a citrus opening with a woodsy popcorn backbeat. I smell some pepper too.  Utterly unisex perfume and presentation but the company sells it towards the women. I’m sure that any guy trying it will feel perfectly comfortable.

The fruits seems like pear and apple and are not strong or ultra sweet, more like a wash. There are hints of Guerlain poking through the heart of Romeo & Juliet yet without the full on sweetness of candy or bakery

The base seems to be a nutty, praline like amber. No, not praline. Nougat. Yep, nougat, amber and laundry musks. I cannot honestly pinpoint it but my guess is ambroxan with some bells & whistles.

Saturday Question: Which Scents That You Have Were Made By Women?

.

Portia

Hello Fellow Fumies,

Every Saturday we have a Question, an idea purloined from Olfactoria’s Travels. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it is a fun event each week. Taking sides never means taking offence and everyone keeps it respectful and light, even though we can sometimes trawl the depths.

The idea is you’ll see it on the weekend or chime in through the week. Hopefully you will come back and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them.
