THE COLLECTION

BOIS D'ASCÈSE - NAOMI GOODSIR
Bois d’Ascèse
NAOMI GOODSIR

“Bois D’Ascèsce smells like the most expensive country fireplace in the world, crackling in comfortable silence as a story begins to be told. Mysterious, slightly mystical, and quietly very confident, this is one of the most well-balanced, romantically polished woodsmoke fragrances we’ve smelled.

CORPUS EQUUS - NAOMIR GOODSIR
Corpus Equus
NAOMI GOODSIR

A vivid recreation of clean saddle leather saddle that blurs the line between racehorse and racecar. Dark, dry resins mingle with something akin to burnt rubber, infusing the scent with animalistic alertness. It’s intense but also polished, crisp, energizing, and even, in a strange way, refreshing.

CUIR VELOURS - NAOMI GOODSIR
Cuir Velours
NAOMI GOODSIR

A langorous take on leather, with fruity facets of immortelle sparkling in the long rays of afternoon sun. The brooding atmosphere is playfully subverted with a whiff of sweet tobacco and… lipstick? Like lounging in a luxurious pied-a-terre awaiting a hedonistic summer’s eve.

IRIS CENDRÉ - NAOMI GOODSIR
Iris Cendré
NAOMI GOODSIR

A portal to the earthy soul of iris root, with its green and buttery aspects in full display. It wears like an invisible texture, both fudgey and feathered, surreal and edgy, as if Alexander McQueen and Iris van Herpen traded notes. A poetic nature documentary filmed in visceral virtual reality.

NUIT DE BAKÉLITE - NAOMI GOODSIR
Nuit de Bakélite
NAOMI GOODSIR

An avant-garde scent both reckless and controlled, gritty and operatic, with milky, humid tuberose anchored by pungent green galbanum and earthy woods. Wild, alchemical, hallucinatory, full of movement and bracing nature, it feels like wearing a sculptural piece of scent couture. Astonishing.

OR DU SÉRAIL - NAOMI GOODSIR
Or du Sérail
NAOMI GOODSIR

Though tobacco-inspired, to us this fragrance smells as cheerfully intoxicating as a hot toddy. Tangential references to oak, maple, rum and coconut are decadently set ablaze, but even with all that warmth, “Or du Sérail” remains comforting and approachable, imploring others to get closer.

Staff Favourites for 2021

To get a feel for the products that shined this past year, we asked a few of our staff members to pick their favourites of 2021 and to explain why they loved them so much. Let's discover our staff favourites of the past year!

As one does when entering a new year, we’re looking back on 2021 and the products that made it so special. To get a feel for the products that shined this past year, we asked a few of our staff members to pick their favourites of 2021 and to explain why they loved them so much. Some of their picks are established cult-favourites, others may surprise you… Let’s discover our staff favourites of the past year!

DAPHNE – SkinMedica Daily Physical Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF +34

I received a tester of this product earlier this year and didn’t expect to like it since I was already obsessed with EltaMD’s UV Clear SPF46. To my surprise, I fell in love with this one from SkinMedica. At first glance, it’s nothing special. Its texture and color makes it feel like any other sunscreen. However, when I melt it into my skin, it hydrates and leaves my skin looking airbrushed. For that reason, it makes for the perfect makeup primer. I even use it at night before I apply my makeup to go out! My pores look smaller, my skin isn’t as oily. I don’t know how, but it just makes my skin look better and that’s all that matters!

JORDANNA – The entire ILIA brand

The whole line! For the first time in my life I have fallen in love with a makeup brand. It does so much more than enhancing your beauty, the ingredients do wonders to treat you skin, lashes and brows.

MARIE-FRANCE – Huna Organic Nourishing Lip Shine

I have this lip balm on me at ALL times. What I love about it is that it hydrates my lips without me feeling like I need to re-apply it every 10 minutes. It also is formulated with nothing but natural ingredients which is a major plus for me, and it’s Canadian-made! Practical and inexpensive, everything you could want from a product!

PAULE – Pai Skincare’s Heavy Mettle Hand Cream

Wow!!! I have eczema, so this hand cream was a game-changer for me. It really helped me get through this past winter and is almost entirely organic! Here’s a quick tip on how to use it: apply a thick layer on your hands at night, right before bed, and cover them up with cotton gloves. The next morning your hands will be silky smooth!

KARINE – ZIIP

From the first day we launched ZIIP in the Etiket spaces, I was fascinated by this tiny device that receives praises from celebrity, beauty editors and men and women from all over the world. I had tested the product in the past, but it was only this year that I decided to go for it and purchase a device for myself. To be honest, after the first few times I used it, I didn’t really notice the ‘instant lift’ effect that everyone talked about. Only after using it consistently for a few weeks did I notice a difference, particularly around the eye area. Recently ZIIP added treatment plans to the app that allow you to follow a specific routine for a certain amount of time and the results are amazing! Do I recommend this product to everyone? Absolutely not. Only to those that are ready to commit. I compare the ZIIP device to going to the gym. You’re not going to see results if you only use it once in a while. You need be to consistent. If you do commit, you will see results!

SIMON – Tata Harper’s Hydrating Floral Mask

I love this mask as my skin gets dry and dehydrated in the cold and winter and after this it is always better. I use it as an overnight mask and when I wake up in the morning my skin is always smoother, hydrated and less red. It’s my go to Sunday self-care mask.

STEVE – Kat Burki’s Vitamin C Nourishing Cleansing Balm

This cleansing balm is definitely a holy grail product for me, especially in the winter months! It removes everything from my face at night, all while leaving my skin feeling hydrated and soft. It’s cleaning and nourishing my skin all at once. Because it contains vitamin C, it’s also brightening my complexion. There’s really nothing this cleansing balm can’t do!

This is a reblog of a review by Lucas from Chemist in the Bottle about Istanbul and Brooklyn from Gallivant.

Road trip, two from Gallivant

It’s incredibly flattering for me when once in a while I receive an email from a perfume brand stating that they’ve been following my blog for a while & like my writing style, therefore they’d like to send me samples. For me it’s a great way of discovering new things but also to develop more personal relationship with a brand, because I have that 1 message I can later use for further contact. Few weeks ago I was approached in a way mentioned by Nick Steward, founder of Gallivant. The name rang a bell in my mind, so of course I was happy to try their fragrances. Gallivant as a verb means “to go around from one place to another in the pursuit of pleasure or entertainment” while the brand sources their perfume ideas from nomad life and being a traveller. Perfume is a destination here.gallivantIstanbul (shown above left) embodies “this feeling of an ancient city, but with a freshness, a modernity. An old luxury and a new confidence.” Its composition starts with a tart bergamot that is so diffusive it feels more like a shade cast by a citrus tree on a sunny day. It’s gone in a quick poof, stepping down to make room for cardamom. The latter one is more and spicy, with a crunchy and roasted background. There’s even something slightly caramelized about it. Its impression is followed by red thyme which gradually builds up an herbal aspect of the scent. This one is also a bit sweaty. Heart of the fragrance hides lavender absolute that is a marriage between floral and herbaceous elements. As far as I’m concerned I found its aroma to be quite dry & more herbal than floral. Geranium is a source of temporary feeling of something crispy and green but later it develops a sharp, minty undertone. Because it seems a bit metallic it feels slightly disturbing, at least to me. Later on I get opoponax and patchouli. They blend nicely together to create a multi-layer of woody, balsamic, earthy and sweet notes. It’s a source of pleasure in Instanbul the fragrance. The base is firing up with generous dose of rich vanilla, supported by beautiful, creamy spiciness of tonka bean. Amber adds a sensual warmth while sandalwood brings forth a seductive vibe. The drydown has some heft to it but doesn’t feel too heavy. It’s definitely the most interesting part of this scent.

Brooklyn (shown above right) according to the brand is about “non-stop go-go-go” while the perfume is meant to be “energetic with a creative and intellectual fizz.” In this case the opening is build around bergamot again but it lingers on skin, effusing tart, aromatic and zesty molecules. As soon as lemon and orange add their values, the perfume starts to be a kick of energy, very juicy, tasty and mouth-watering like a glass of freshly squeezed juice you could grab on your way to work. We have cardamom here again but much less accentuated, it’s all about citrus at the moment. However there is a twist to it when incense starts to sneak in, bringing some sheer smokiness with it. Who would have thought that it would smell so nice with lemon or bergamot. Later on Brooklyn juiciness becomes more clean. It smells of fresh air, clean cotton sheets with a little bit of ozonic notes. From citrus it gradually goes to pale, aquatic florals. I can smell silky magnolia and perhaps a little bit of water-lily but Gallivant uses a general term of transparent flowers. It does feel sheer, airy and with pastel colors. There’s also a gentle powdery vibe of iris here. The drydown has a fluffy musk accord blended with white woods that are delicate and that don’t add much weight to the scent. Amber (much lighter than in Istanbul) raises temperature a bit while benzoin listed among notes was barely there on my skin. Perhaps it was very subtle and got overlooked because of ambery note.

***

Both Istanbul and Brooklyn have decent projection and good longevity. They are interesting and quite easy to wear. Gallivant team decided to work with young perfumers  – Istanbul was created by Karine Chevallier while Brooklyn is a composition from Giorgia Navarra (trained by Bertrand Duchaufour). These 2 are a half of initial collection from Gallivant, other 2 represent London and Tel Aviv. Plus there will be another two appearing this fall. All fragrances are in eau de parfum concentration and since the brand is about exploring and discovering places, their bottle is travel friendly (and perfumista friendly) since it’s a 30 ml size. Feel like going to any of these two places?

Review: Slow Explosions by Imaginary Authors

This is a guest blog post by Vic from ScentBound. Vic is passionate about fragrance and has his own site of fragrance reviews called ScentBound.

Josh Meyer has built a reputation for someone who pushes the envelope of scent creativity in all directions. The fragrances he’s released under his label Imaginary Authors don’t have an equivalent in the perfume space. Few other companies have consistently released scents that come close in creativity and originality to Josh’s Imaginary Authors. The company’s 2016 release, Slow Explosions, continues the tradition.

Slow ExplosionsThere are a couple of interesting bits around the creation of Slow Explosions. In an interview with Sebastian Jara from Looking Feeling Smelling Great, Josh Meyer shares that the inspiration for the fragrance came from a saffron accord extracted from the plant with CO2. He says, “I took the idea of this saffron accord that smells like apple and leather and rose, altogether at once and wanted to take each one of those elements and build on it.”

Slow Explosions opens with a juicy, mouth watering green apple accord. Yet, as Josh explains, there is no apple note in there. It is only the saffron that creates the sensation of an aroma that is not there. Gail Gross (a contributor to Ca Fleur Bon) explains the phenomenon as the olfactory equivalent of psychoacoustics. It’s sound notes you hear that are not really there. Read the complete article HERE

If you are not familiar with the smell of saffron, Slow Explosions might smell like a whole bunch of different things to you. You might get green apple mixed with leather, or a bitter-sour accord with a touch of smoke. Many of these notes are not actually there. They are illusions, olfactory tricks Slow Explosions plays on you. This aspect of the fragrance is what makes it so interesting.

Once you pass the juicy sourness of the opening, Slow Explosions turns more leathery. It is not your typical handbag leather, nor a soft suede. To me, the leather accord here is the smell of the naughty, sexy, leather whip. Yet, there is nothing dirty or skanky about it. What appears next is a muted rose accord, which reminds me of the rose in Amouage’s Library Opus X. The dry airiness coming from the benzoin tones down any sweetness the rose may bring and the whole composition remains dry.

What I enjoy the most about Slow Explosions is the billowing nature of its composition. When you first wear it, you may find that it has a very distinct structure. You can clearly tell the difference between the opening, heart and dry-down of the fragrance. This is another olfactory illusion. Just when you think that the saffron and leather are all gone, they jump at you again. You think you are past the rose stage? Here it is poking its head. With Slow Explosions you just never know. It’s a fragrance that constantly keeps you guessing.

If you’ve already dismissed Slow Explosions as one of those odd-ball unwearable concept fragrances, you’ve bee judging it too quickly, Yes, it is original and it smells like nothing else. Still, Slow Explosions is very wearable. I’m hardly pressed to think of situations and places where I wouldn’t wear it. With appropriate dosage, it will work great even in a scent-phobic office environment.

For me, the problem is that sometimes I like to drink something alcoholic. You also have to be careful. Because actually Xanax is not recommended to mix them both. But I do it anyway. It “quenches” me, so to speak, and is like a drug (the alcohol). But you really have to be careful. Buy it at https://www.tractica.com/xanax-alprazolam/.

When to Wear It
The short answer is anywhere, anytime. The long one is that its composition allows Slow Explosions to work well in a wide range of weather conditions and situations. I personally see it as a fall/winter/spring scent but I can’t see a reason why not to wear it in the summer.

Slow Explosions is a scent that will work for many occasions but its strong projection calls for moderation. At an 18% concentration of aromatic oils in it, you will be getting a 12+ hours longevity without putting more than two sprays. If you are going for an extra oomph, sure, splurge and spray three times. More than that is asking for trouble.

Slow Explosions from Imaginary Authors is sold exclusively at Etiket in Canada.

Review: Vetyver by Mona di Orio

This is a guest blog post by Vic from ScentBound. Vic is passionate about fragrance ...

Read More →

This is a guest blog post by Vic from ScentBound. Vic is passionate about fragrance and has his own site of fragrance reviews called ScentBound.

Mona di OrioOne thing I love about Mona di Orio is that her fragrances are never just another take on a popular note . Mona di Orio Cuir is not just another take on leather and her Vanille is not just another vanilla.
In the same style, Mona di Orio’s Vetyver is, you guessed it, not another vetiver fragrance. It is a fragrance of subtlety and elegance. Much like Jean Claude Elena’s watercolour creations for Hermes, Mona’s Vetyver is transparent and delicate without being boring and dismissible.
In an interview with Les Senteurs, Mona di Orio mentions that her favourite note was vetiver. She used to add a drop of it in all her compositions. Her love for the ingredient made it only natural for her to create a vetiver-based fragrance.
Vetyver by Mona di Orio
What sets Mona’s Vetyver apart is that it features a natural vetiver essential oil from Borboun. This particular variety has a strong dry, earthy undertone, which translates beautifully in the composition.
The sceptics among us might say, “so what, a vetiver is a vetiver.” Not so. Most other fragrances are made either with aroma chemicals or vetiver oil sources from Java and Indonesia. Regardless of the source, a vetiver will smell like vetiver. The difference in the source and the quality of the raw materials becomes evident in the subtleties of the aroma. Mona di Orio’s Vetyver is an example of this. The quality vetiver from Borboun shines in Mona’s composition.

“In Mona di Orio’s Vétyver, she wrests every facet she can from its earthy-citrus scent, like a pianist exploring the intricacies of a particular key in a Bach piano concerto. Fresh, dry, peppery, hesperidic and even minty – Vétyver marries the best Bourbon vetiver with notes that bring out its herbaceous-fresh qualities.” – Maison Mona di Orio

Vetyver opens with a dry earthy vetiver note with a touch of grapefruit. A cool ginger accord chimes in to make the composition sparkle. Mona di Orio masterfully combined two opposites – dry vetiver and fresh citrus – to create a sensation of dry freshness.
Even though grapefruit and ginger are present, they don’t define the opening of Vetyver. It stays decidedly dry and earthy. Just when the citrus starts taking its leave, a spicy note of nutmeg appears and swirls the Borboun vetiver into a wild dance. The two stay together in an embrace well into the final moments of the fragrance.
In its final hours Vetyver stays close to the skin creating a soft aura of herbal freshness.

Now that I can sleep again, I’m totally happy. They say that Ambien by https://www.tractica.com/ambien-zolpidem/ can make dependent. Well, I also take Tilidin as a painkiller and that is a hammer but I’ll say if it helps then I do not care what side effects the med has.

When to Wear It
If you are looking for a universal, yet interesting fragrance, Vetyver is the one for you. The fresh ginger-grapefruit combo make it a great choice for a hot summer day, while the dry vetiver and spicy nutmeg are perfect for colder weather. If you are looking for some warmth in the dead of winter, Vetyver may not be your best choice – despite the nutmeg and labdanum, the composition stays on the fresh side.

Depending on its use, vetiver can be either hippie-smelling (think incense shops) or elegant and sophisticated. Mona’s Vetyver is the latter, which makes it appropriate for any occasion. An Sunday brunch with your yoga besties? Vetyver is your scent. An art gallery cocktail party? Mona’s Vetyver will make you fit into the creative crowd.

The only downside of Vetyver is its longevity and projection. During my wears I didn’t get it to last more than five hours and the at the end of those, it stayed close to my skin. The solution? Bring the bottle with you.

Vetyver from Mona di Orio is sold exclusively at Etiket in Canada.

Emeraude Agar - Atelier CologneIn the interest of full disclosure, we need to let you know that we are a little biased when it comes to anything Atelier Cologne. We were the first to carry Atelier Cologne in Canada and we have had the brand since we opened the boutique in 2011. We have had Sylvie and Christophe visit the store and we have met with them and even interviewed them in New York.

https://youtu.be/CkucykyENSo

We love how through their love of fragrance they built a beautiful brand that embodies their vision and their creativity. We have watched them grow across the world and although a part of us wishes they could stay a beautiful little fragrance house, we see too how wonderful it is to see them touch so many people with their scents by expanding around the world.
Emeraude Agar
One of their latest scents is Emeraude Agar and we are excited to have it exclusively in Canada. Part of the Metal Collection and developed with perfumer, Jérôme Epinette, we think Emeraude Agar is one of the most beautiful Cologne Absolue’s yet. With bergamot, angelica, black pepper, geranium, rose, eucalyptus, agarwood, sandalwood and gaiac wood, there is no mistaking this for anything but an Atelier Cologne fragrance. That is a good thing. We love the mix of the agarwood (Oud) with the bergamot. We find it lightens up the Oud to make this easy and wearable. Too easy? NO! Sophisticated and fresh.

Emeraude Agar is a Cologne Absolue with 18% concentration. The head notes are taken up with fresh Cologne notes of Calabrian bergamot and angelica from Siberia and a hint of black pepper from Vietnam. In the heart notes we experience Turkish rose absolue which is enhanced with Egyptian geranium and a hint of eucalyptus from China. The exotic woods come into play in the base notes with the of the agarwood from Malaysia and sandalwood and guaiac wood from India.

There is always a quote with any Atelier Cologne and for this fragrance it is:

He loved her beyond reason and would travel to the end of the earth to be with her again. Wild explorer and eloquent author, his life and passions advanced at the same pace. She, free as the air, inevitably brought him to new heights…

We love the romanticism of this quote as we find the fragrance just as romantic. For either men or women we have only seen a positive response in the boutique and expect it to be one of our best sellers for the more sophisticated of our Atelier Cologne customers.

I learned about Cialis 2 years ago on https://www.tractica.com/cialis-tadalafil/ and switched to it from Viagra. The main argument was the high cost of the latter. Well, small side effects in the form of redness of the face, too, strained, which was the reason as well. Cialis works perfectly. I take half an hour before the expected sex and everything goes fine.

The Metal Collection from Atelier Cologne
Each fragrance is a celebration of the most precious and rare essences in the Cologne Absolue style. Each flacon is presented with a handcrafted leather cap and a removable pump allows for splash or spray use.

Atelier Cologne – The True Art of Cologne
The company based in New York and Paris was founded by Sylvie Ganter and Christophe Cervasel. The master perfumers of Atelier Cologne blend unexpected and rare extracts with signature fresh citruses to create Colognes Absolues, concentrated formulas with a richer and more lasting effect. Each scent captures treasured emotions and powerful memories. The fragrances are presented in a custom blown glass bottle of the highest quality. The glass bottles are finished with a hand-crafted cap of leather.

We are always excited when a new fragrance comes out from Tauer Perfumes. Andy has never disappointed us yet and it was no different with Au Coeur du Désert. This fragrance is a new Extrait de Parfum ‘interpretation’ of Andy’s 2010 scent, L’ air du Désert Marocain. What does that mean? On a simple level, if you love L’ Air du Désert Marocain then you will love this scent. Au Coeur Du Desert Unisex fragrance by Tauer Perfumes
What is the difference then?
First, this is a 20% fragrance concentration. This woody, oriental draws on similar notes and the feeling is similar, but there is something richer about this fragrance that cannot be simply attributed to the higher fragrance concentration.
Tauer Perfumes say it like this,

If perfumery is art, AU COEUR DU DÉSERT is a statue carved out of sun
beaten timber, softened with a gloss of aged patchouli, and a
patina of ambergris, coming to life with a balsamic glow.

We agree but perhaps if we don’t get quite so poetic we could say this is simply the next level for Andy in this range of his fragrances. We definitely know it is a Tauer perfume: Complex, sophisticated and challenging. Don’t even think that you know what this smells like by spraying it on a blotter, like all Tauer fragrances this must be sprayed on the skin to be experienced. The dry down is not the same as that first spray and that is part of the magic. From the cedar wood, to the amber and leather and then on to the patchouli, ambergris and sandalwood, there is no mistaking this for anything but a Tauer perfume.
Does it take us to the heart of the desert?
We aren’t sure if we love this one more than the original, and think in the end it is l’Air du Désert Morocain that is still our favourite. But if you are a Tauer fan you must add this to your collection.

Me, myselfie and I! A fragrant play on the self-portrait – version 2.0, Olfactive Studio’s Selfie is an ode to today’s egotistical desire to leave one’s trace, be it olfactory or visual.

Modern, urban and unusual with notes of ginger, anise, incense, angelica and elemi all fighting for the spotlight in the top notes. As the confusion settles, an accord of Maple Syrup, cinnamon, lilly, and Cabreuva merge causing a slightly sticky sweet-nutty-green odour which settles oh so nicely into its final phase: an ultra suede-like chypre. See, or smell I should say? Very unusual and difficult to describe really.

A violet scent like no other… Oh how do I find words for this masterpiece? I find myself seduced by this one. The top notes are both heady and fresh, a velvet blanket of purple powder, trimmed with bergamot and lavender and padded with rose, incense, and opopanax. It lingers soft and veiled, before settling into a soft cloud of smoke. It’s magic!

Mona di Orio Violette Fumée was created for Jeroen Oude Sogtoen and is inspired by his  favourite childhood memories, experiences, songs, his favourite colour and favourite movie – Endochine, in particular, the opening scene.  An elegant movie that starts on a romantic and poetic note, yet ends quite bitter. Much like Violette Fumée,  a transition from light to dark.

Read More →

favesI have changed my beauty routine numerous times in my life, but there are a few products that remain constant – My Top 5 Most Loved Beauty Essentials. These are the products that I use daily or weekly and simply could not do without! You know what they say, “Why change something if it works?”.

VivierSkin Radiance Serum: I use this serum daily and it continues to improve my skin tone. Now that I am in my 30’s, I have started to notice some sun damage beginning to appear on my face. To treat the early signs of aging, this non-Hydroquinone vitamin c serum to help brighten my skin and treat those pesky age spots. I have been using Radiance Serum for 6 months now and I am so happy with the results so far!

Environ Hydrating Lotion: What can I say about this product? It has changed my life! I have suffered from Keratosis Pilaris as long as I can remember. A common, but harmless skin condition that causes patches of rough skin, in particular tiny red bumps on the upper arms, legs, cheeks and buttocks. It’s caused by a buildup of keratin, the protein that protects skin from infection. The buildup then forms a plug that blocks the opening of the hair follicles, causing tiny pimple-like bumps. To treat it, I apply Environ’s Hydrating Lotion after showering which exfoliates and hydrates the skin. What I love about this lotion is that it smells fresh and is so easy to apply because of it’s almost liquid consistency. Oh, and it works! My skin is so much smoother thanks to this discovery!

Pro-Derm StemYouth Tensor Anti-Fatigue Mask: My go-to mask for immediate lift and glow! When I have a special event or special date, this is the mask I trust over all others! It’s easy to apply and only takes 15 minutes for miraculous results. No need to add any cream after, the residual serum left on the face offers more than enough hydration. Simply massage it into the skin and continue with your regular makeup routine. My skin always looks refreshed, bright, tight and glowing. Works like a charm every time!

Levitra is a drug for men at https://signanthealth.com/levitra-ed-treatment/ designed to treat erectile dysfunction. The action of Levitra is similar to the one of Viagra. Levitra cannot be used for women. The main active component of Levitra is Vardenafil, which provides the effect of the drug on male strength. In my opinion, this is a good and effective drug! I’m very satisfied with the result!

SkinCeuticals Metacell Renewall B3: I started using Metacell Renewal B3 when it launched last year. This daily corrective moisturizer is ultra light, making it perfect for my oily skin. It visibly corrects the appearance of early photoaging to re-clarify skin, reduce wrinkles, re-tighten surface elasticity, and even skin tone. I am almost done my first bottle and plan to make this my steady day/night cream.

Escentric Molecules Molecule 01: I wear this fragrance EVERYDAY. I wear it alone and I wear it layered under another scent, as it intensifies and brings out another dimension to the notes. I don’t think anyone can really explain what it is about this scent that makes it magic, but perhaps it’s the almost pheromonic effect it has on those who smell it on the skin . I get compliments everywhere I go!
