house or apartment needs some scenting before the onslaught of New Year's Eve guests (and if you're staying home alone, a good perfumed candle makes things cozy-contemplative and festive). Hashish's listed notes are black currant, green apple, wormwood, patchouli and moss. Hashish is a...

it, but those of us who are just awakening to the pleasures of Ormonde Jayne and other European fragrances have much to discover. The first day I sprayed Ta'if on my body, I was stunned by its appeal - and that I had never tried it, based solely on its notes. I had bought several Ormonde...

The packaging for French home fragrancing brand Geodesis is absolutley beautiful. Clean, stylish and interesting at the same time. I'm currently spritzing Tuberose everywhere because it's such a pretty, sparkling scent that is light and bright. Actually, it's definitely for those who like...

I've been trying the new Sugar Butter solid fragrance from Ormonde Jayne in my favourite OJ scent; Ta'If. If you haven't discovered Ta'If it's an oriental, spicy rose that defies the category really. I wouldn't ever pick out an oriental or a spicy perfume – call me bland but I love a floral...

to produce the perfect perfume, but Ormonde Jayne dare to dream. They've even created a dusting powder made from pure gold dust. No wonder they can count Emma Thompson and Yasmin Le Bon amongst their fans! Despite their popularity, you won't see the retailer changing any time soon. Founder...

This round is home fragrance (you can also find some home fragrance items in the earlier editions: part 1 , part 2 , part 3 , part 4 and part 5 ). More to come! From Fornasetti Profumi, the L'Ape scented candle with lid (above left), 300 g for $150, and the Pistola Incense box (above...

think they are genius for coming up with such creative and unique fragrances, it's just not me anymore. But I have found some more brands that I think align to my tastes now. Antica Farmacista recently reached out to me to try some of their products. I've actually been a fan for awhile now,...
