“As the owner of Etiket, I have the pleasure of selecting the fragrances that we carry. With our sense of smell being the most powerful of all of our senses, choosing a fragrance may be about a memory, a moment in time or the chance to experience something new. If you are new to niche fragrances, our sample program is easy and a wonderful way to find a new scent just in time for summer,”  Simon Tooley

Let our fragrances take you on a trip….. here are my favourite summer fragrances!

Heeley: Sel Marin

A Day in St. Tropez
I used to love the end of the day at the Beach Club 55 with just a little too much sun, the crowds all gone and the sea serenely calm. A magical moment perfectly captured in Sel Marin by James Heeley.

Etro: PatchoulyLet’s Dance…
I wore Etro’s Patchouly for 20 years and was always asked … “What are you wearing?” It was my go to scent for a Saturday night on the town and was impossible to find in Canada, but not anymore.

Atelier Cologne: Mistral PatchouliMeet you on La Croisette
Spending the summer in Cannes taught me many things: what is a perfect mille feuille and how to drive a stick shift. I also discovered the magic of the Mistral and you can live it every time you wear Mistral Patchouli from Atelier Cologne.

ArquisteA Night at the Opera
I have to admit that the opera was an acquired taste for me, but the glamour of opening night at the Opera in Prague or Vienna or of course Paris is only a spray away with Boutonnière No. 7 from Arquiste.

Un Bateau pour CapriCapri Capri!
There is something unexplainable as you arrive by water to an island made famous by the jet set in the 60’s and Un Bateau pour Capri by Eau d’Italie will take you there with one simple spray.
Hermès scarf optional.

It was a cold January day in New York, at the beginning of last year, when I met Carlos for a drink to chat and catch up. We met at a local restaurant near his office and as he sat down, Carlos was so excited to let me smell what would eventually be Nanban, but he was even more excited to talk to me about a new project for Arquiste: candles.

Carlos’s passion for what he does is contagious. I listened as he told me his inspiration and his ideas as to why Arquiste was ready for candles. I forgot about it all until I was contacted about a month ago from an editor wanting to know if we would be carrying them. That goes without saying – anything that Carlos Huber and Arquiste does will be available at Etiket!

The state of my nervous system has deteriorated. During the day, I constantly experienced terrible tension and at night a poor sleep. Dad had cancer with severe pain, often he was unrestrained and rude. Xanax at https://foamcast.org/xanax-alprazolam/ helped me to relax a little, while not reducing my activity.

 

The candles arrived a few weeks ago and although I love them all, there is something about the candle Carlos created for the St. Regis Hotel. The St. Regis candle called, Caroline’s Four Hundred, makes me stop and smell it each time I am in the store. The candle is inspired by Caroline Astor, the matriarch of the hotel’s founding family and doyenne of New York’s Gilded Age society. Inspired by one of Mrs. Astor’s famous balls, it is a gorgeous mix of exotic woods, beautiful blooms, and there is a touch of champagne that seems to be floating there somewhere.

The other three candles also feature fragrances that are inspired by historical places: Art Deco Velvet, Dark Galleon, and Mexican Baroque. These exquisite scents capture the olfactive experiences that set the stage for some of history’s most entrancing moments.

The packaging is perfect and makes a far more interesting gift than a bottle of champagne any day!

The change of season is the perfect time to find your next signature scent! As the weather gets cooler, you may want to switch out your light, floral scents for something a bit warmer, heavier and just down right cozy. Here are our top fragrance picks for Fall/Winter 2015:

screen-capture-851The Italian Way To Vanilla

Eau d’Italie’s newest fragrance Morn To Dusk is a sensual fragrance that wraps around you like a veil of gold, from morning till the sun sets. Fresh and vibrant to begin with, this scent starts with a clean, energetic note of bergamot and gradually warms with bourbon vanilla until the shadows of the day deepen with cedarwood and musk. Intense, hypnotic and simply irresistible!

Eau d’Italie, Morn to Dusk EDT, 100ml – $175

screen-capture-852Lavender In All Its Bracing Charm

Penhaligon’s No. 33 was created to celebrate Penhaligon’s 145th anniversary and is named after one of their first ever boutiques on 33 St James’s Street in London. It opens in an aromatic burst of crisp citrus, rustic armoise and clary sage alongside a bracing lavender note. Incredibly smooth, the heart is enriched by warming pepper, ginger and cardamom and fresh, rosy geranium. Tobacco, cedar and vetiver add a dry smokiness, balanced by the restrained sweetness of tonka, amber and vanilla.

Penhaligon’s No.33, 50ml – $115

Oud Saphir is the latest fragrance from Atelier Cologne’s Collection Métal. It opens with citrus drops of bergamot, spiced with pink pepper and ambrette seed.

A gorgeous unisex scent that is perfect to wear now or when the cooler fall weather really settles in.
