Scent of the day: Fougère Royale by Houbigant - This is a fresh, green, sweet and smooth masculine fragrance that a woman can enjoy wearing. A lavender, herbal, and citrus scent made warm by a vanilla and tonka base. It begins as a clean, aromatic, soapy fragrance like a barbershop--like a steamed, white terrycloth towel smelling of herbal lavender, zesty bergamot, minty geranium and fresh clary sage. Then it gradually heats up and sweetens with vanilla, coumarin, and a touch of patchouli. This is simply great!!

The #MareNostrum collection from #LorenzoVilloresi was inspired by the #Mediterranean #Sea :"Crossed by sweet currents, caressed by the breath of soft breezes and countless changing perfumes. Mighty, generous sea, the scene of exciting visions that cannot be told, salvation and danger alike for men and for heroes. There, skimming the crest of the waves, #Poseidon rides his chariot drawn by golden-maned horses. In the deepest seas fair #Nereides live, their long locks wafting in the foamy waters, to the sound of the salty surf." #AuraMaris is the first #scent in the Mare Nostrum collection. The fragrance captures the moment of a #seabreeze gently brushing the #ocean #waves mixing with the aromas from the Mediterranean shrubs, citrus fruits and meadow flowers under the golden sun.

#CocoFigue by #ComptoirSudPacifique is like a #fragrant #tropical #hammock that stretches between a #coconut and #fig tree. And while the air is ponderous with vanilla milk, these two trees act like the perfect newlyweds: they compliment each other, knowing they are in paradise.

The opening of the perfume is heavily tropical, like a very refined version of a suntan lotion that gets better as the skin is warmed by the sun.

Coconut, vanilla and ripened fig dance in the happy tune blasting off the tropical getaway speakers. As the sun gets high on the horizon, the fig and the vanilla put on their bathing suits and take a dip in the coconut milk.

The transitioning stage of the composition is all about milk. My nose detects a creme brulee like milkiness: sweet, inviting, anchoring the coconut in the safe sweet harbor of crowd pleasing scents.

And when the milk glass is halfway full, the refined prevalent artistic ingenuity of Comptoir Sud Pacifique is brought out to daylight.

No more suntan lotion sweetness, hello green and woody fig reign. Rain washed green leaves travelling in a coconut milk river. Milky, woody and earthy, this scent conjures image of summer in its finest form.

While the initial sweetness may lead you up to the deceitful juvenile perfume path, the dry down will convince you that the original earthy and woody fig path is genuinely worthy of your affection.

Delicious, funky and totally carefree. Needs to be approached with an open mind and patience until the dry down. No judgement must be passed before this stage.
