HOMMAGE a l’Homme

$5.00

When Lalique Parfums wanted to commemorate their 20th anniversary with a new fragrance, the brief given to perfumers Mathilde Bijaoui and Christine Nagel was, well, brief: ‘man’, ‘travel’ and ‘Orient Express’. From this they created HOMMAGE a l’Homme.

OK, ‘man’ I get and ‘travel’ I get but ‘Orient Express’ requires a bit of an explanation.

Flora Bella

Posted in
$5.00

Launched in 2005 by jewelery house Lalique, Flora Bella is what I wear when I want to smell the fragrance of flowers rising from my skin – rose, violet, freesia, mimosa, tuberose, carnation orchid, Tiara – all of them filling my lungs, swimming around in my brain, making my aura glow.

Perles de Lalique

$5.00

I love how it opens with such a fresh accord, totally modern – no sweet, no floral – pink pepper right away, followed quickly by a light spicy rose. The rose and pepper are joined by iris to form an almost sour green accord for a few moments, like pickle brine, which then intensifies and becomes more floral, heating up into a lush spicy rose-iris mix which becomes the heart of this perfume. It’s a very sophisticated scent, truly modern and very chic, and becomes even more so as the base notes develop.

Lalique Le Parfum

$5.00

Le Parfum is beautiful. One word – beautiful.
 
It was created by Dominque Ropin, who has done several of the best Frédéric Malle scents such as Carnal Flower and Une Fleur de Cassie. His style is classic perfumery – heady, richly layered, full-bodied florals, with strong animalic undertones – big feminine scents - but with Le Parfum, he’s put the brakes on and created a quiet but elegant, deeply luxurious scent.

Encre Noire

$5.00
encre noir

This fragrance was on the bottom shelf in the Men's section at Sephora. I gave my wrist a quick spritz, and kept sniffing it for the next 24 hours, absolutely captivated.

The top notes were shocking. Intense vetiver - green, dry, earthy, sour, pungent at the top with a twist of turpentine - vetiver in all its glory.
