La Religieuse (Serge Lutens)

La Religieuse (Serge Lutens) – 1/5
jasmine musk – Christopher Sheldrake

I confess that while I simply adore so much of the creative output of Serge Lutens and Christopher Sheldrake, recent releases have shown a trend towards increasingly emotional narratives but rather lacklusture perfumery: L’Orpheline (the orphan girl) was a watered-down soapy musk with a dash of incense and a strange plastic note in the heart, L’Incendiaire (the arsonist) was a straight-up sweet oud, Laine de Verre (glass wool) was an incredibly synthetic anti-perfume perfume (cold musk), and now we have La Religieuse (the nun). 177 more words


El Attarine (Serge Lutens)

El Attarine (Serge Lutens)
apricot woody – Christopher Sheldrake

A name like El Attarine leads you to expect a) an opulent, heady rose, and b) to be deprived of close company for the next several hours, unless you happen to be in a mosque. 432 more words

Dzongkha (L’Artisan Parfumeur)
green iris – Bertrand Duchaufour

Launched in 2006, Duchaufour’s second best incense for L’Artisan is none the worse for it. Compared to the radiant warmth of Timbuktu, Dzongkha is more readily dissected into its component parts: iris, carrot seed, leather and incense over a great vetiver and musk. 39 more words


Photo of the Week: Offering

Chiang Mai, Thailand

A visit to the ancient city of Chiang Mai is not complete without a stop to one of its 300 temples. The wats come in all different shapes and sizes, some are conspicuous with their glittering gold statues while others are crumbling and receded back into history.  92 more words
