Enjoying a Rhubarb day from you!
I would just like ya'll to know that opening a Vilhelm Parfumerie box brings me such joy....its like my perfume is a piece of expensive jewelry 😁
Just wanted to let y'all know i ❤❤❤ Dear Polly as well as Basilico & Fellini! I'm having a hard time deciding which one to get, wish you had smaller sizes so i could buy them both 😁 I actually looked up the Vilhelm collection and all their perfumes sound amazing.
Irrestible, vibrant and with a sense of ‘daily escapism’ – this was the brief for these super-colourful packs for US-based frangrance boutique Arielle Shoshana. Brooklyn-based studio Wade and Leta is behind this design that is defined by its ‘bubble’ motif that is carried across the injection-moulded flacon caps and the box to create, in the words of the agency, “a rich colour story which looks great on its own and even better when stacked together”. A bright way to kick off the weekend!

Tonight's event was so much fun!! I loved hearing everyone's take on the samples. Thanks for hosting! 😊
Got Gin Fizz a while ago and I've been loving it :) I just have to give you props for awesome mail service!

I miss being able to smell y'all's frags in person, and just about every time y'all suggested a fragrance I either enjoyed it (Soft Lawn is both lovely and funny, they aren't kidding about the tennis ball note) or started coveting a whole bottle.

Delightful meeting the wonderful clients who were such fun! Creative cocktails were served and Arielle's grandfather was busy photographing and capturing his dynamic granddaughter in action.✨
Something's in the air at Arielle Shoshana! Head over today to find your fragrant, summery spritz 💦💐
DC Modern Luxury features a perfume by former client and friend Arielle Shoshana in its May 2018 issue:
(see page 104)

CORE's design of the luxury fragrance store located in Fairfax, VA, successfully translates the client's unique concept to shop by dominant scent, which changes the way men and women purchase fragrances. For example, the design integrates orientation points on the shelving while creating a gallery for the bottles.

On the beach. The scent of bare skin under the sun, refreshed by the salty waters, caressed by the balmy air, enriched by orange blossoms, magnolia, and jasmine... This is the beach, an ode to sensuality, a dive into pure pleasure. Divine alone, sinful with a lover.

New shop pup, accepting more applications!


showing off her summer style and excellent scent selection in .official Drunk Saffron!


Evan .e is from Ghana, and Accra was nostalgia and love at first sniff! So fun to see the magic of fragrance with this scent from .stories!


Just landed: the gorgeous, glamorous, and very Gallic fragrances from Veronique Gabai! Inspired by the French Riviera, these fragrances are sunshine in a bottle. Whether you want to smell like a Tarte Tropezienne (Souvenirs de Tunisie), a dark, glamorous v***n (Noire de Mai), or just really enrich your wine drinking experience (Ready for Rosé), you'll be as dazzling and golden as a Cote d’Azur sunrise.


Jazmin's pick today is the spectacular gourmand Lost Alice! We commend her excellent taste ;)


.a is our Faces of Francis trailblazer ;)

Faces of Francis is named for artist Francis Bacon, who painted haunting, distorted portraits in dark neons that verged on ultraviolet. But his most famous work, the most expensive piece of artwork ever sold (until a 2015 Picasso auction), is a perfect Vilhelm yellow.

The newest Vilhelm Parfumerie transplants pistachio from the ice cream parlor to its native habitat: the desert. Make that dessert: a traditional Middle Eastern backdrop of saffron, oud, and papyrus gives Faces of Francis the mouthwatering richness of Vilhelm-yellow bastani.

Now available for preorder (ships the 15th): Liis Ethereal Wave!

Black and white thinking has never smelled better. Black tea and white tea notes float through Ethereal Wave like loose tea leaves perfuming the air of a tea shop. A delicate, naturalistic tea fragrance you'll want to steep yourself in.


"Solar" fragrances create the feeling of warm, golden sunlight, usually through tropical floral notes or a sunscreen effect. Solaris takes the tropical floral route, but it adds something new, something instantly appealing: the irresistible juiciness of blackcurrant.


The warmest, sweetest, and boldest of our new Penhaligon's, Empressa won't fail to empress anyone who adores sensual florals like Maison Francis Kurkdjian Amyris Femme or Chanel Coco Mademoiselle.


Halfeti, a Turkish town along the Euphrates River, boasts unique soil conditions that produce an even more unique rose: the Karagül, a particularly thorny species with petals so intensely burgundy that they verge on black. Abundant spices give Penhaligon's Halfeti the appropriate dark drama.


The Moon Goddess’ bath is as soothing as it is seductive, much like her eau de toilette. It shines with orange, jasmine, soft rose and fir balsam. Relax. Sink in. Surrender has never felt so sweet.


Is all the fuss over Penhaligon's really warranted? It's royally warranted, actually: three different British monarchs have granted Penhaligon's their Royal Warrant over the past 186 years. Which makes these witty, skillful fragrances worth exploring, we'd warrant.


New & exciting: Liis Ethereal Wave!

A new, hypnotic eau de parfum fusing celestial allure with emotional depth, paying tribute to the heavenly darkness within the music genre pioneered by The Cocteau Twins. Bergamot and cardamom entwine in harmony with white and black tea. The whisper of blonde woods unfurls, cascading into a luscious tapestry of opulent, velvety musk.


Gardenia gorgeousness, compliments of Kai!


Lily's fallen for the fab Frangipani!


Lucienne is officially Amy-approved!

Ormonde Jayne defines British luxury, so it's about time we feature their products beyond eau de parfums. These diffusers and candles are so painfully POSH, Linda includes descriptions for optimal lighting/reed diffusing times, in case you're hosting a dinner party. Most of us are DoorDashing in our pajamas, but these products might just inspire us to take a stab at hostessing in the not-too-distant future. There is no better way to let your friends know you've got your life in control than your house smelling equally as amazing as you do, after all!


Ashley is all in on 11 11!


Not too late for a beach getaway! 's Rockaway Beach is just the ticket. The brief: sunscreen, salt-on-skin, the ocean air on the coast of Queens, where privet hedge flowers blaze beside pastel condos.


Puppies and perfume: a winning combo. Nothing makes us peppy like a bag filled with Giuseppe!


An irresistibly realistic gardenia. Kai is a true niche cult classic, enchanting everyone from Oprah to Tyra with its lush tumble of tropical flowers.


Jenn's style is always inspiring us, so when she picked Cardamom Moss we knew it was bound to trend!


Courteney and India are Leos with equally great taste in fragrance: India went for Indecent Cherry as a birthday gift, and Courteney was dazzled by Dear Polly!


Included in Highsnobiety's Barbiecore roundup: Annabel's Birthday Cake!


Avante-garde auto fragrances for our most driven customers. Five best-selling D.S. & Durga candle scents, reborn for the rearview mirror. Roadtrip Hits is a five-piece set destined to delight on any roadtrip!


Cascades of emerald cluster blooms drenched in lush, tropical mist. Fresh, green, white floral elements.


Karin & Ron are celebrating their anniversary with new fragrances: Champaca and Molecule 03! Happy anniversary, guys!


Catherine raved about Rock River Melody! We can't think of a better gorgeous green choice for summer.


New & exciting: Gallivant Accra!

Ghana's capital city is also its fashion capital: Accra street style dazzles with vivid, saturated colors and bold, graphic Kente prints. Intense spice and heat give Gallivant's Accra the energetic vibrance of its namesake.


Head-turning, heartbreaking, all-consumingly gorgeous, shimmering tuberose flirts with melon, orris butter, and chrysanthemum. The narcotic effects of this fragrance are undeniable, and it's a maximum impact fragrance. Wear it sparingly and prepare for the onslaught of iconic love rock anthems written in your honor, or when you really need to break up a band.


Molecule 04 consists of Javanol, pure and singular. Javanol is a sandalwood-type molecule that retains the radiance and endurance of natural sandalwood but is sheer and transparent like no sandalwood in nature. "What I love about Javanol is its almost psychedelic freshness," says Geza Schoen. "It smells as if liquid metallic grapefruit peel were poured over a bed of velvety cream-coloured roses."


Vianna is in love with EVERYTHING in In Love with Everything!


BW & Kayla are visiting from Tennessee, and are Sunday fanatics (soon to be Monday devotees also)! They smell predictably spectacular ;)


Salt spray roses are summer freckles on the sand dunes of New England beaches. One of the most resilient rose species, these hot pink shrubs can survive the fiercest ocean storms. ( .) Rose Atlantic explores the softer side of hardy Rosa Rugosa with a bright, delicate coastal rose fragrance.
