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.

City Perfume has $189/100ml
Don’t forget the 10% Discount Code in the side column.

Padre Aura: Nera Orchidea Candle + Discount Code

Hi there crew,

My mate Thierry is director at City Perfume. Recently I was coffee-ing with him and he was really excited about his line of candles. Full of enthusiasm, Thierry has worked hard to make quality products at an affordable price. Going through the range together it was easy to become bundled up in his joy and they do smell good.

Padre Aura Nera Orchidea Triple Scented Soy Candle

The line is based on fragrances, it’s a cool concept. They take a few popular perfumes from the same genre and create an analogous simple scent that has a few of the crossover notes. So the candle I chose, Padre Aura: Nera Orchidea, has a few notes from Tom Ford Black Orchid, Tom Ford Velvet Orchid, Narciso Rodriguez and Bvlgari Jasmin Noir. While it smells unlike any one of them particularly it does resemble parts all of them.

Padre Aura: Nera Orchidea gives a fruit sweetness over spicy white florals and vanilla.

One of the things I like about these candles is they don’t have the heavy, thick scent trails so many other brands leave. I don’t want my apartment overtaken by candle fragrance, what I want is a scent to neutralise man, food and dog smells and leave the place smelling fresh, inviting and loved. Padre Aura: Nera Orchidea does this perfectly. Burn the candle for an hour till the top of the wax is liquid, then blow it out. The warm wax will continue scenting your home for a couple of hours afterwards at a low level.

You get approximately 80 hours burn time and with the double wick the wax melts nearly to the edges. The wick doesn’t discolour the candle and there is only a little smoking at blow out. There are a bunch of selections in the range that are similar to such fragrant luminaries as Coco Mademoiselle, Alien, Aventus, Spice Bomb and many more.

City Perfume has offered APJ readers a 10% DISCOUNT CODE* (AFG17) and FREE AUSTRALIAN EXPRESS SHIPPING if you spend over $150

Padre Aura: Nera Orchidea is $59/400gm

So what is your candle of choice?
