Little Red Riding Hood (Le Petit Chaperon Rouge) whisks us off into woods where a brave little girl skips along, toting a basket full of goodies for her sick grandmother. On the trail to grandma’s cottage, she encounters the scents of cedar trees, lily of the valley, moss-covered bark and wild berries.

Sinbad the Sailor (Sinbad le Marin) takes us aboard his ship. The Chimera, as it sails the high seas from one adventure to another. The brisk ocean air is infused with hints of spice and musk from below deck, precious cargo from exotic ports in the journey.

Perfume is dead, long live perfume!

ELO proclaim the birth of Etat Libre d’Orange, the Orange Free State — a newly emancipated territory, a land of licentiousness and seduction, where olfactory insubordination reigns supreme. Here, fragrance has been liberated from the traditional restrictions of the perfume industry, where even the most talented noses are subjected to the expectations of brands and are forced to conform to the demands of the marketplace. At Etat Libre d’Orange, perfumers are given complete creative freedom to play with their own personal fantasies and develop original, provocative scents. In this way, we return to the ideals of perfume – its carnal energy, sensual power, and the essential, erotic expression of the body and its desire.

Olfactive Studio

Olfactive Studio is an encounter between contemporary artistic photography and perfumery; between the eye and the nose. Olfactive Studio is at the crossroads of a photographic studio and a perfume design studio. This is the first time ever that perfumers have teamed up with photographers to draw inspiration from their oeuvres. They sense the images to capture their essence. Photography and perfume capture the moment and rekindle the memory of past experiences. Imagining a sensorial, intimate, and poetic relationship between images and scents is to reconcile temporal spaces. “Perfumer’s proofs” are born out of the perfume creator’s emotions invoked by the picture and have proved to be authentic and original olfactory concepts. They take us from a world where perfumes are harvested to one where time is captured.

Olfactive Studio

Together, talented perfumers and photographer have created Autoportrait, Chambre Noire, Still Life, Lumière Blanche (2012), and Flashback (2013). Elegant and unconventional modernity emanates from this wonderful alchemy. Olfactive Studio designs an exceptional olfactory world with a powerful and distinctive personality; a world of intuitions and emotions; a world designed for women, men, and all others. The perfumes are angels; they have no gender, but they have a soul. An olfactive and collective studio is born. Inside it, just like children, we are free to sniff images in motion. Olfactive Studio was launched in Paris in September 2011. Today, it is enjoying great success in over 25 countries in Europe and the Middle East, in Brazil, South Africa, and Australia.

Rose Duet Candle by Diptyque

The Diptyque Limited-Edition Rose Duet perfumed candle is set in lacquered glass, making it even more mysterious and delicate. A perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, Diptyque’s most recent limited edition is tinted with just the right shade. The hue gives a hint of the fabulous whiff one can anticipate once the candle is lit. Enthused by the mystifying Rose Duet, a hybrid-rose popular with botanists for its distinctive elements, petals are pale on one-side and shadowy on the other.

Baies aromatiques and Roses merge to create a candle that offers an inimitable delicate scent experience. Roses embrace the depths of this newly snipped bouquet created from a splendidly admired flower, while Baies articulate the passionate crispness of roses with blackcurrant leaves. By amalgamating these two wonderful aromas, a spectacular poetic scent is fashioned.

Présentation PowerPoint

Some feel that the new Diptyque Limited-Edition Rose Duet scent is well, girly. In addition, it is associated with strolling through a rose filled garden during breezy summer months. It is akin to being inside on a cold winter’s day with the scent of roses to stir up the image of a room full of fresh flowers. Very few scented candles can offer such truly quixotic olfactory experiences.

The New Year has begun so it is time to let go of cinnamon, pie scented candles, to take pleasure in a more refreshing exquisite fragrance. The Rose Duet scent actually brings springtime that much closer. It signifies an authentic new beginning from a tantalizing rose garden to the sophistication of the garden of universal splendor. Winter blues will be blown away with this Diptyque Limited-Edition Rose Duet aroma.

NEST After Midnight Collection

Steep your senses in the luscious, exotic depths of the new After Midnight Collection from NEST Fragrances. With a flick of a match, slip into sensuality and conjure the perfect accompaniment to your late night magic with the scents of Exotic Woods, Italian Leather and Oriental Orchid. Let yourself be hypnotized by a single, fragrant siren song or follow their natural steps through the hours. Blend two or more together into an intoxicating ambiance when you are feeling adventurous.

Each 8.1 ounce candle gleams in jet black glass for up to 50 hours of alluring fragrance and flickering flame. Packaged in a signature black-and-gold faux bois gift box, NEST Frangrance’s After Midnight Collection is the perfect gift or personal indulgence.

At One O’Clock, dip your toes into the musky floral menagerie of Oriental Orchid. Delicate wild orchid mingles with the fruity nectar of exotic frangipani and moonlight bloom of jasmine. Their scents float through rich exotic woods, the earthy spice of black pepper and the deep green, balsamic amber of vetiver.

At Two O’Clock, fill your world with the aristocratic masculinity of Italian Leather. Crisp, classy cedarwood settles into the buttery richness of suede, elevated by the sultry citrus twist of bergamot and warmed by the spice riches of cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg.

At Three O’Clock, be enshrouded in forest shadows with Exotic Woods. Sweet, smooth sandalwood dances in the inner glow of embers and deep, resinous smoke of black amber. Rich, precious frankincense completes the sweet, heady warmth.
