  • My Smell Recovery After Covid-19 January 26, 2021
    The final week of 2020, right after Christmas, I got a very undesired present: COVID-19. I was never very scared of the eventuality of contracting the disease, but when it came, I was of course afraid and apprehensive.

  • Melon Revisited: From History to Contemporary Fragrances January 25, 2021
    For many people, melon as a fragrance note is their personal Kryptonite, the one thing they detest and despise which can ruin an otherwise pleasurable fragrant experience.

  • Virgile Sylvaine Delacourte Review January 24, 2021
    In modern perfumery, it's not easy to find a fragrance that is unlike anything else. When any successful fragrance is analyzed and then replicated by several brands at once, when thousands of new products are released every year, unique fragrances among them are like a needle in a haystack.
