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.

Monsillage is a small exclusive collection of perfumes inspired by past travels, one-of-a-kind experiences, personal impressions and glimpses of grace that creator Isabelle Michaude has experienced. At a very young age, Isabelle became interested in the world of fragrance. It was at the renowned ISIPCA in Versailles, France, that she acquire all the knowledge that would later help her to realize her dream of creating her own line of fragrances. Isabelle then spent two years developing her unique concept before officially launching Monsillage in December 2009.

Using only the finest raw materials from around the world, Isabelle tends personally to each stage of creation to ensure the quality of the brand. The collection now includes six fragrances: Eau Fraïche, Dupont Circle, Aviation Club, Ipanema Posto Nove, Vol 870 YUL-CDG and Eau de Celerí, winner of the the prestigious Art of Olfaction Awards (Artisan category) for 2015.
