March 2016: Marching Back and Forth

Is this the tail end of winter? Or the beginning of spring? If it's March, that means it's both.

There will be days when the birds sing and you long for the smells of spring (try the gardenia!). Next will come days when winter’s chilly grip tightens once more and you turn to something cozier (might we recommend a deep, dark Arabian masterpiece?). Days later, the sun will coax green shoots from the ground and spring will be here for good (a perfect time for an olfactory trip through Roman gardens).

No matter what Mother Nature throws at you, you’re ready. And you will smell fantastic.


Soliflore Gardenia from Dame Perfumery Scottsdale is the culmination of a perfumer's quest to create the perfect gardenia soliflore--a scent that captures the true-to-nature smell of the flower. Here, Dame succeeds in capturing the gardenia in its full, springtime glory. Read more...




Memoir Woman from Amouage plumbs the depths of some heart-achingly beautiful materials, and the result is—as always—as elegant and luxurious an experience as perfume can ever promise. (And it's ideal for those chilly March days that feel more like winter than spring.) Read more...  

 


Mon Jardin from Bottega Profumiera is inspired by the ruins of a tiny Italian town that flourished in the Middle Ages. Today, it's a lush fairytale of a hidden garden that draws tourists from all over the world. Read more...

 

We hope you love this month's selections as they swing back and forth with the dueling seasons. Happy spring!

I loved this box, it was my first and so far my favorite. Soliflore Gardenia is great— singularly gardenia, watery, long lasting and very beautiful. I have previously returned a Dame Perfumery scent my boyfriend bought for me (Mate, Heliotrope and Patchouli) and tried several others in-store with no luck. Memoir Woman is complex and deep, but more masculine and incensey than the name suggests -a favorite for cooler weather. Mon Jardin is my spring/summer weekend day go-to. I love it- floral, perfectly balanced, classic.

Lovely! While I have a vial of Amouage Memoir already, it is one of those fragrances that I can’t ever have enough of. The other two are so intriguing, so I’m excited.
