March 25, 2016
I feel naked without perfume.

In my recent travel, I had forgotten to bring my favorite bottle and it felt like walking in the chilly streets of Barca totally naked. Ironic and #goodweird. 
I only wear the same scent for the longest time. Okay, there are 3 of them that I wear on rotation. I have previously talk about scents and the kinds of perfume I wear – and why I only stick with one few scents. This year, I try to be more accepting of new scents. 

Marc Jacobs Decandence

The impulsively luxurious scent is developed with master PERFUMER ANNIE BUZANTIAN. The fragrance captivates with the sultry top succulent Italian plum, golden saffron and velvety iris. The heart is the bouquet of rich Bulgarian rose that mingles with lush orris and creamy nuances of jasmine sambac. Sexy liquid amber, heady vetiver and warm papyrus woods dry down to a signature of sophisticated indulgence. 

The elegant scent is presented in a feminine bottle inspired by Marc’s classic handbag shape.

Chloe Love Story

This is the kind of story that you want to hear: floral, fresh, and sexy,  Orange flower oil opens the fragrance with a radiant, luminous, and intoxicating characteristic like the flush of new love. The seductive and joyful scent of stephanotis jasmine, often used in wedding bouquets, gives the fragrance its heart. Finally the scent is grounded by the sensual diffusion, strength, and freshness of cedarwood, creating a unified and complex base that endures.

You might have already seen updates from your favorite bloggers with the hashtag. This scent is launching soon – and here’s a peek of what to indulge in. I am actually drawn with it as it is minimalist yet playful.

ck2 is a dual-faceted scent that balances two opposing forces: the strike of spicy electric freshness and the warmth of magnetic woods. a signature fragrance for an urban, alternative, new freshness.
the fragrance opens with an unexpected spice of wasabi flavor deepened by an underlying note of magnetic, creamy warmth.  the strikingly fresh top note, evocative of the electricity of contact, is complemented by solar heat and a feeling of warm stones on a hot day. the energy of floral accords pulses through the heart with rich sensuality, while wet cobblestones bring a mineral splash to generate electric freshness.  the drydown of jasmine is enhanced by the scent of vetiver and blends with the creamy fieriness of sandalwood and sensual musks, blending together to envelop the electricity of magnetic warmth. complex while cool and natural, two fragrance worlds merge together to create an exuberant, intimate and contrasted connection.
