" Mon Numéro 10 ~ "This last act will be explosive. After our travels, secret tributes and other sensual pleasures, this perfume is an explosion of warm, enveloping notes. Quite simply addictive. A heady, memorable ode to a highly sought-after note of oriental perfumes. Mon Numéro 10, with...

Whilst in London last week, I had the joyous experience of popping along to the L'Artisan Parfumeur store in Covent Garden market. I'd been invited to visit to pick up a goodie bag that amongst other fragranced delights, contained some seeds with which I will be attempting to grow my own...

West Village niche perfume boutique Aedes de Venustas has launched their second fragrance, Iris Nazarena, or their third, if you count the earlier Aedes scent for L'Artisan Parfumeur. Iris Nazarena follows last year's Aedes de Venustas Signature, and I think we can now safely say a few things...

Mimosa fragrances must be tricky to pull off. There aren't a lot of them out there. Besides Parfums de Nicolaï Mimosaique which I'm reviewing today, Caron Farnesiana, Guerlain Champs Elysées, and L'Artisan Parfumeur Mimosa Pour Moi seem to hold the field. (The jury seems to be still out on...

Séville à l'Aube is the latest from French niche line L'Artisan Parfumeur. Over the years, I've reviewed a fair number of their fragrances — yes, I'm a fan. This, however, is not a proper review. I've never met blogger Denyse Beaulieu of Grain de Musc, who worked with perfumer Bertrand...

When acquaintances who want to know more about perfume ask me for recommendations, I often suggest a visit to a L'Artisan Parfumeur counter. L'Artisan was the first "niche" fragrance house I ever experienced, back in the 1990s, and it's still one of my favorites. Lately I've been watching with...

L'Artisan Parfumeur will launch Explosions d'Emotions, a new trio of fragrances developed by perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour. Déliria, Amour Nocturne and Skin on Skin will debut in September. Déliria (shown) ~ with metallic, rum and gourmand notes plus toffee apple and candy floss. Amour...
