Another fragrance to add to my tray–cue the holiday shopping list!

As described on the Frederik Malle site:

“The deep and lasting odor of warm skin, with all its salty hints and rich overtones. A fragrance carved with hefty chunks of cashmeran, sandalwood, musk and patchouli. It is reinforced with salicylates and incense, softened with heliotrope, and colored with a violet accord. Intimate, deep, a quiet sensuality, an exalted skin scent, the real essence of perfume.” Sounds like perfection to me.

Maurice Roucel and Frederik Malle create such beauty together.

Smell: Perfume Moment

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

I’ve loved and collected fragrance for many years. I adore all they have to offer: the packaging, how it makes me feel, that little bit of hope in a bottle. Lucky for me the best perfume store ever, Aedes de Venustas, is en route to my subway stop. I’ve bought a lot of my favorites there – the gorgeous owners always make perfect suggestions and I inevitably leave with something beautiful to add to my ever growing collection. If you haven’t been there I suggest you go, it’s really special – the cozy space, their endless knowledge of fragrance, their two adorable dogs – I love it all.

Some of my favorites that I’ve bought from them: Montale White Musk, Molecules, Diptyque Tam Dao, Annick Goutal Eau d’Hadrien and many more.

What are some of your favorite scents – please share as I clearly need to add to my tray of beauty!
