A new fragrance line has arrived at Etiket and we could not be more excited! Perhaps it’s because this is a brand made in our own city of Montreal! Monsillage takes a personal approach to perfume, associating past memories of travel, characters and real-life stories experienced by perfumer and creator Isabelle Michaude. When I first sampled the line, I was immediately drawn to Vol 870 YUL- CDG, for many reasons. One, I love anything to do with travel, planes, airports etc,. Also, I have traveled this route a few times and have fond memories of my time spent in The City Of Light – sights, smells, food… Reminiscing about past travel can easily transport me back to some of the most inspiring moments of my life and scent memories are certainly no exception! Even just a hint of a scent can strike a chord with a memory or place.
Now, on to the juice – a one way ticket to Paris!
What’s interesting about Monsillage fragrances is that they all smell very different from sniffer stick to the skin. I would urge you to try samples, take them home and wear them to get the most accurate scent. When I first smelled Vol 870 YUL-CDG on paper, I wasn’t moved… on my skin however, I am head over heels in love… take off! Soft, feminine and so unique with opening notes of ylang-ylang and balsam fir that’s slightly sweet, with hints of woods, fruit and musk. As this fragrance comes to “a landing”, it becomes a lovely warm, musky skin scent with very good longevity and sillage. Perfectly balanced and very easy to wear any time of year.
