For me they are warm, warming, deep, close in feeling to delicate cashmere and cozy tweed, painted in brown-beige tones. They hold the promise of peace and wisdom. I don't want to act with them, but I want to contemplate.
The magicians from Jo Malone can draw pictures and create the right mood. I've already collected blackberries with them (Blackberry & Bay), drank tea (Earl Gray & Cucumber), ate lemon pie (Lemon Tart), breathed in the scent of rain (Rain & Angelica) … And here's a new reason to get my favorite yellow rubber boots Hunter, take a large checkered umbrella and go to the English coast. The scent of Wood Sage & SeSalt on the skin resembles the salty spray of waves (sea salt at the heart of the composition) and sounds like sage, which forms a persistent green trail. After such a walk, there is only one thing left - to spend the evening in the company of one of Agatha Christie's novels.
Absinthe drinker. In this case, it is me, and not at all the heroine of the famous painting by Pablo Picasso. The name of the new Fou D'Absinthe perfume, L'Artisan Parfumeur, translates as “Crazy about absinthe”. And this is absolutely true. After all, it is known that absinthe evokes a "green fairy" - a harbinger of insanity, passion and unbridled desires. It seems that the composition was not created without the participation of this fairy. Just imagine: bitter absinthe, pepper, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, star anise, patchouli, pine needles … It is easy to lose your head and fall into a long trance from such an intoxicating cocktail.
Even if you can't decide which cashmere sweater to choose today (blue, gray, beige, milky white?..), then you can be sure about the fragrance: the only possible option is Eau de Cashmere, Guerlain. Frankly, I just described my typical morning, which became much more pleasant with the appearance of a pale pink bottle in it. Guerlain perfumer Thierry Wasser created a surprisingly pleasant "perfume accessory" from notes of iris, lavender, cedar, vanilla, musk, which must be applied directly to clothes. And it can be not only cashmere, but also the lapel of a tweed jacket, a train of a silk dress or the edge of a favorite blanket.

The new fragrance of the Oriental Collection - Splendid Wood, Yves Saint Laurent, unequivocally hints at the East. Rare wood species combined with spicy freshness make it multifaceted and, as they say, “rich”. In this place, all serials about harems, hammams and belly dancing should be remembered. So, it's time to let yourself go (well, at least for a little while) into the world of the Thousand and One Nights fairy tales. In short, the scent is boudoir, frankly sensual and thick. But in the fall, there are holidays and public events. And in such cases, he has practically no equal.
It's hard for me to say which I love more in the new version of Si Eau de Parfum Intense, Giorgio Armani, bottle or "juice". Perhaps I love everything. On the one hand, the iconic black color, the sculpted molten onyx lid, the three-dimensional lacquer effect - these details make me push the bottle to the fore and proudly show it to my guests. On the other hand, in a more intense concentration, the composition sparkled with new colors. The chypre accord has become stronger and more obvious, but the black currant extract and freesia notes gently set it off, not allowing it to go into simplicity and one-lineness. This is a mature, self-sufficient fragrance for a woman who already knows everything about herself and enjoys this knowledge.
