As 7 melhores fragrâncias femininas para o Verão escolhidas pelo E.S.P

O E.S.P analisou as fragrâncias que estão chegando ao mercado Brasileiro e separou as que vão bombar até o final do verão e as que serão destaque no inverno. Realmente a indústria deu uma melhorada e tanto nos conceitos batidos que vinham sendo utilizado. As fragrâncias são mais elaboradas, elegantes e a silagem melhorou muito. Vamos começar com as promessas femininas  para o verão. Como já estamos um pouquinho avançado nessa estação e o nosso Blog já indicou as tendências desde agosto de 2016, preferimos os tiros certeiros, aquelas fragrâncias que estão sendo conhecidas e elogiadas no mundo inteiro e que , provavelmente, vieram pra ficar. Com certeza você vai se deliciar com essas preciosidades. Vamos lá?!


1) J'adore Lumiere Eau de Toilette de Christian Dior 
J'adore Lumiere Eau de Toilette  Christian Dior for women
O sabor de only you and me
O Teu jeito que me faz sentir
 Chegar de mansinho
 Carinho é bom de fazer

O vinho e acontecer
Boca a boca,só queijos e beijos

Um breve resumo sobre esse perfume que, na minha visão, é um dos flankes mais delicados e gostoso de J'adore. A primeira vista parece que a fragrância não mudou muito. Sou fã da composição inicial mas tenho um problema com ela, as vezes me sufoca, de forma que não tenho mais. Fui conhecendo outros, muitos deles eu colocaria na minha prateleira mas o preço não condizia com os benefícios. Encontrei nele a suavidade e o encanto que não encontrei nem mesmo no J'adore EDT. Ele é calmo, sereno e tem uma ótima silagem. O jasmim que as vezes deixa a composição tradicional um pouco enjoativa é substituído por notas de magnólia. Minha impressão foi que a magnólia deixou a fragrância mais orgânica, menos artificial. Apesar do Néroli estar dividindo o espaço e o toque frutado suculento contraste com o adocicado da baunilha, a intensidade é mais característica de um coração  floral quase místico, totalmente equilibrado. Uma aposta ótima pra quem quer ser a mais luxuosa criatura do verão e não sufocar quem está por perto.

2) Dolce Rosa Excelsa de Dolce&Gabbana

Dolce Rosa Excelsa Dolce&Gabbana Feminino
Eu relutei muito em conhecer esse fofo. Para mim, as fragrâncias Dolce da D&G eram totalmente fora da casinha, preços exorbitantes e perfume sem graça e nada inovador. Pois é, Rosa Excelsa não é uma inovação, muitas vezes me pego pensando que ele lembra o dolce ou o Queen do AB, mas esse danadinho é bom. Uma fragrância mais natural, totalmente longe do sintético, uma dulçura leve, com um toque elegante e inacreditavelmente fresco. Não tenho o que reclamar! Rosa Excelsa me conquistou e é uma ótima pedida para quem gosta de perfumes leves e primaveris. Nesse verão eu apostaria nele para mulheres que gostam de vestidos floridos e salto alto. Rosas com amor!

3) Lolita Lempicka Edition d'Ete de Lolita Lempicka

Lolita Lempicka Edition d'Ete Lolita Lempicka Feminino
Simplesmente adorável ! Um LL para o verão com toque de natureza e refrescância? I Love It! 
Esse cheirinho de talco de violeta com o DNA LL e toques florais verdes delicados. Como não amar?
A silagem me impressionou pois, apesar de não ser de projeção monstra, ele vai deixando um rastro de segurança que parece não desaparecer. Se pudesse escolhe-lo como o Flanker do ano, não exitaria!

4) Extraordinary Pétale de Oscar de la Renta
Extraordinary Pétale Oscar de la Renta Feminino
Um brinde ao sucesso
Um gosto de Moet Chandon
Meu Bem faz de novo
Um brinde à conquista
Amor de revista
Casaco de pele, vison

Roberto de Freitas

Ah! como esse pequenino é elegante. Estranho dizer isso de uma fragrância tão jovial, florido e veranil. Eu sinto um frizante borbulhando em flores e frutas. límpido e belo, com rosas e jasmim banhado em aroma de flor de laranjeira fresca. Não aconselho pagar o preço dele, não vale a pena, mas quem gostou do primeiro precisa experimentar esse.

5) Ever Bloom Extrait Absolu de Shiseido 
Ever Bloom Extrait Absolu Shiseido Feminino

Aurelien Guichard esta surpreendendo. Emplacou duas beldades esse ano : Ever Bloom Extrait Absolu e Wonderlust de Michael Kors.  Sinceramente ever bloom extrait absolut é uma composição que dispensa comentários. Os pequenos defeitos que Ever Bloom  tinha foram corrigidos e a composição foi do floral pó para o floral feminino adorável e elegante. Gardênia e violeta. Um toque nipônico que parece ter sido capturado por Guichard, como  flores leves e adocicadas em um lago calmo e sereno. Perfeito!





6) Wonderlust de Michael Kors 
Wonderlust Michael Kors Feminino

Puro e sem gelo
 Magia e fantasia no ar
 Me deixa sonhar
 
Tão doce é esse instante
Um brilho insinuante
 Outra vez coração quer brincar
 
Insinuante! Essa é a palavra pra descrever o aroma cremoso apimentado com toque perfeito de sândalo abaunilhado. Aquele aroma de leite de amêndoas deixa o perfume tão sensual que não dá pra não se apaixonar. Ele é meio mágico! Chega a despertar uma vontade de colocar uma roupa chiquérrima e sair pelas ruas em meio aos olhos intrigados das pessoas que passam e dizem: Que linda! Que perfume!

7) Eau de Cartier Essence de Paradis de Cartier 
Eau de Cartier Essence de Paradis Cartier for women and men
Divino esse teu manequim
 Brincando de olhar prá mim
 Que coisa mais chique
 
Faz de conta que tudo é possível
Se quer que eu fique assim
 Até eu ficar com você
  


Um aroma nostálgico misturado a um sensual ylang ylang e um toque frutal que lembra a melancia e frutas vermelhas. Ele evolui ricamente em notas que não estão na piramide mas que parecem se pronunciar, como rosas ou gerânio. Um  rastro elegante de âmbar é percebido porém não é o mais proeminente, nem as madeiras são. É elegante e tem uma silagem muito boa.  Quem esta esperando uma fragrância boba e sem graça para ele vai cair do cavalo. Tem algo que lembra sol, luminosidade. É chique!


Moschino Couture! : Fragrance Review

44444

Elisa on another perfume that’s lighthearted, easy to wear and interesting.
There are certain perfume brands that fly under the radar. They are neither so mainstream that you see testers on every department store counter (Estée Lauder, Gucci, and the like), nor do they qualify as “niche” or earn the cult status of pricey brands like Serge Lutens and Amouage. These perfumes – I’m thinking of brands like Paco Rabanne and Cacharel – are found at mall perfume kiosks and online discounters, usually for under $50 a bottle. If you know about one of these scents, you probably either bought it at a drugstore as a teenager, heard of it through word of mouth, or discovered it via pure happenstance.
Moschino_Couture
This last method of discovery was the case for me with Moschino Couture!, launched in 2004. (The exclamation mark is part of the name, but I’ll drop it from here on out.) Early on in my perfume-buying days, I had an insatiable hunger for new fragrances, but not a lot of money to spend, and I frequently blind-bought bottles when they could be had for just a few times the cost of a sample ($4 for 2 ml or $20 for 50 ml … this seemed like easy math to me). I bought Couture on a whim because I was ordering a bottle of Moschino Funny! and the site had great deals on both.
It was a serendipitous decision – years later, this fruity-floral-meets-floriental is still a favorite. The top note is a citrusy blackcurrant – tart, zingy, and addictive. The rest of the fragrance is basically a clean jasmine blend on a sheer woody base with plenty of tonka bean, which gives an effect similar to YSL Cinema or the discontinued Armani Sensi. What makes Couture different is that the blackcurrant note combines with the almond to create an illusion of cherry, which reminds me of mixing Amaretto and cranberry juice in my college dorm room, an experiment that resulted in the cocktail version of a red snowcone.
Not all my blind buys have been so successful, naturally, but Couture has become a staple in my collection – carefree and easy without smelling like candy or shampoo. It’s one of those simple fragrances that is so well-balanced it never feels boring. Every time I wear it I wonder, “Why does no one ever mention this wonderful fragrance?”
A note on availability
Although discontinued, Moschino Couture still occasionally shows up at low prices in some outlets. (As such it joins other tricky-to-find gems like Cartier So Pretty and Fendi Theorema.) I recently spotted bottles in the dedicated perfume store at my local mall, and Victoria has seen it at Overstock and on eBay, so keep an eye out.
Moschino Couture! includes notes of bergamot, tangerine, pepper, yellow poppy, pomegranate blossom, poppy seeds, benzoin, vanilla, and cedar.

Love Letter to Chypre


Cool, inky, powdery, nutty, dark… It’s hard to explain what’s so compelling about the smell of moss, but Patricia attempts it here and shares her love for all things mossy and chypre.
It was many years before I learned that my favorite perfumes, for the most part, fell into a group called “chypres.” I had no idea that they had anything in common, except that I loved the combination of cool and elegant with dark and almost feral notes, the sacred and profane all rolled into one. Chypre, I found out later, referred to a distinctive accord based around several different elements, but as Victoria mentions in her article on the history of chypre, the important chypre ingredient is oakmoss.
miss-dior-ad
The oakmoss is exactly why chypres are not without controversy. Due to restrictions by the  IFRA (International Fragance Association) on the use of oakmoss because of its status as an allergen, the formulas of beloved old favorites have been radically altered. Enter synthetic oakmoss and the resultant buzz in the perfume community about dramatic change of beloved chypres like Guerlain MitsoukoChanel No 19 and Parfum Grès Cabochard.
But my story begins much earlier when a mother gifted a bottle of Miss Dior to a young teen who wasn’t quite sure what to make of it. Was it pretty? It was. Was it sharp and nose-wrinkling? It was that, too. Miss Dior had already been around for a couple of decades when she found a place on my dresser top and had already enchanted many with her love-me-love-me-not quality. The green and peppery opening in Miss Dior progresses from gardenia and jasmine to a creamy drydown of sandalwood and dark leather. In the end, the teen decided that it was true love, and my fascination with all things mossy was born.
Yves Saint Laurent’s Y, created in 1964 and reissued two years ago, was another early favorite. It opens with a blast of green leaves, coriander and peach skin that is rather quickly followed by a dry, almost prim, combination of iris and moss. Very wearable, it was often reached for in the days when my perfumes could be counted in single digits. Gentlemen, don’t be put off by its designation as a woman’s perfume. Its crisp dryness would be very nice on a man. The same applies to many other chypres, both classical and modern.
After Miss Dior and Y, it was a short hop to young adulthood and Givenchy Ysatis (coconut and flowers and lots of them), Scherrer 2 (spicy ylang ylang and patchouli), Ivoire de Balmain (green jasmine and soap bubbles), and Krizia Teatro alla Scala (honeyed carnations and sandalwood). Though I wore them all, the closest to a signature scent during this time period was K de Krizia.
Created in 1982 by perfumer Maurice Roucel, K de Krizia exemplifies the flamboyant  1980s style. There is nothing subtle about its combination of exuberant green notes and lush hyacinth, although the fizzy opening of mandarin and coriander doesn’t indicate that what follows is a true bombshell. K de Krizia is also packed with rose, amber, musk, and sandalwood, and while a tart mandarin lingers in the drydown, the perfume is as curvy as Sophia Loren. Although these days I only need a small sample to remind me of its power, K de Krizia still moves me and brings with it a flood of memories.
Though the modern chypres lack the dark earthiness of pre-regulation formulas, they have a charm of their own. Favorites in this group are Keiko Mecheri’s Ume (cedarwood soaked in plum syrup), Parfum d’Empire’s Eau Suave (mossy rose and violet), Serge Luten’s Daim Blond (soft as apricot skin suede), Chanel 31 Rue Cambon (peppery iris and antique woods), and Acqua di Parma Profumo (patchouli mixed with jasmine and ripe peaches).
Right now, my favorite modern chypre is Chypre Palatin by Parfums MDCI. The first time I smelled it, I was nearly brought to my knees by its elegant but dramatic blend of tangerine zest, lavender, and rose, all wrapped in layers of velvety moss. The drydown of smoky vanilla and dry leather seems to go on forever. It promises to be my chypre obsession for this decade.

Do you like chypres? If so, what are your favorites?

Marilyn Monroe How To Marry A Millionaire Is Part Of A Twentieth Century Fox Licensing Deal (2016)


How_to_Marry_a_millionaire_fragrance.jpg
A Bristol-based company specializing in British celebrity scents Designer Fragrances issued a perfume inspired by Marilyn Monroe and her iconic role in How to Marry a Millionaire late last year. They already hold a portfolio of fragrances which comprises the names of Kelly Brook, Katie Price, Alex Curran and Celebrity Big Brother star Calum Best...
The launch is part of a wider licensing deal put out by Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, which is based on the portfolio of 12 Fox-owned Hollywood film titles starring Marilyn Monroe.
Whatever your own experience of this classical movie is - and perhaps you never wondered how the film's character, Pola Debevoise, smelled like (but we did here) - the perfume is an unexpected take a priori, since it seems to take into account the marine air of New York City as a portuary city.There is also a note of savory vanilla.
The eau de parfum opens on top notes of green mandarin and a marine accord leading to a floral heart of jasmine, while the base rests on sandalwood, amber and "salted vanilla."

The flacon reproduces the cat-eye glasses of Pola, which is so fortuitously à propos in the context of the Women's March. It is fast becoming an emblem of feminism.
Available in 100 ml for £21,95.

versace_dylan_blue.jpgIn 2016, Italian fashion house Versace introduced a new men's fragrance named Dylan Blue presented as "A highly distinctive fougère fragrance,"...
It is also inspired by the Mediterranean,
"The expression of a man's strength and charisma conveyed in modern fresh and sensual Mediterranean freshness."
The eau de toilette has top notes of bergamot, grapefruit, fig leaves, and an aquatic accord followed by a heart of ambrox, papyrus, patchouli, black pepper and incense; the base features mineral musk, tonka beans and saffron.
Available in 100 ml EDT.

Guerlain L'Art Et La Matière Joyeuse Tubéreuse (2017)



Guerlain_Joyeuse_Tubereuse.jpg
Guerlain has added a new fragrance in their L'Art et La Matière collection, a library meant to reach out to connoisseurs...
Joyeuse Tubéreuse (Joyous Tuberose) is the paradoxical composition of a flower considered normally to dispense a heavy, narcotic scent. By contrast, the house imagined a tuberose drenched by tropical rain, picked right after the passage of a downpour.
The concept is not new for the house, if you think of it as an Après L'Ondée for a tuberose.
Perfumers Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk worked on an "unexpected freshness" effect for the floral scent. The eau de parfum is said to smell sappy, dewy and green. The typically sultry floral has now become "innocent", "airy" and "luminous."
The unisex green floral composition opens in the top on green notes followed by a heart of tuberose, lily and jasmine sambac. The base creates a contrast thanks to sandalwood, vetiver and vanilla.
Price: 198€ for 75 ml.

Santa Maria Novella Lana (2017)

Santa Maria Novella Est. 1612 has partnered with the Italian cashmere specialist Ballantyne to create a new, unisex fragrance composition called simply Lana (Wool)...
The blend is said to be soft, warm, and sweet evoking the gesture of dipping your hands into fluffy wool.
Main notes are leather, precious woods of sandalwood, cedar and vetiver, powdery notes of musk and rose petals. The light, airy floral scent is meant to evoke the outdoors in which sports are played - a different take on the idea of a sports fragrance.

The collaboration extends to scenting the FW17-18 capsule collection of Ballantyne entitled "Sport Intarsia" in which each and every woolen item will be fragranced with Lana.
This is a limited and numbered edition released in 3533 copies, a number chosen for its symbolic meaning since it corresponds to the addition of the year of foundation of SMN, 1612, with that of Ballantyne, 1921.
It is available only in the Florence SMN boutique and the Ballantyne flagship store in Milan.

Aerin Tangier Vanille (2016)

 

AERIN_Tangier_Vanille_Packaging.jpg
© Aerin Beauty
When talking about her new perfume, Aerin Lauder answered a question,
"What type of woman did you have in mind when creating this fragrance?
This is an everyday fragrance for a woman who loves a spicy, warm scent with a touch of vanilla, bergamot, amber, and musk."
On this simple, lifestyle premise, a story about memories of Morocco has superimposed itself,
"It's a fragrance that transports me back to Morocco, with its aroma of spices and exotic atmosphere."
Perfume is a springboard for memories. Yours might differ from the brand founder's while being colored by Aerin Lauder's storytelling. I do not imagine a specific place when I smell Tangier Vanille, but see it as a study in the secondary nuances of vanilla. It is about vanilla displaced...
The fragrance opens on a small burst of bergamot (cf. Shalimar) - and then appears to evolve into an almondy interpretation of vanilla, skewing it in the direction of the scent of an aqueous tonka bean. Even dried tonka beans smell of almond and water, to my nose. The scent of tonka is often part of a sweetened Oriental base, contributing to creating a familiar chorus.
It is therefore paradoxical to see it take precedence over the main title note, vanilla from Madagascar. But this aesthetic choice reveals itself to be consistent. Succeeding the discreet fruity almondiness and vanillic aspect of Tonka in the top, is the equally subtle almondy and vanillic soul of Heliotrope in the heart.
The almond scent which is part and parcel of Heliotrope is a bit different from the almond smell in Tonka bean. In purple Heliotropes, it smells powdery, flour-y, doughy, bread-y - and is quite evocative, today, of PlayDoh. It has also a fruity cherry facet which appears in Tangier Vanille too, albeit refined; it then has an aniseed facet, which does not appear here, but did in the discreetly groundbreaking Jo Malone Vanilla and Anise - an under-the-radar Heliotrope-inspired perfume.
The scent of cherry feels fleeting - almost dematerialized. It calls to mind the lightest breeze in springtime, in which a trace of the cherry fruits to come, beckons.
The composition, at times, reveals a confusing yet delightful capacity to smell like a springtime floral breeze carrying all sorts of bits and broken pieces of the natural, temperate world at that time of the year. You could almost smell pollen.

Tangier_Vanille_Ad_Morocco.jpg
© Aerin Beauty
As the scent further develops, a consistent aesthetic of self-effacement and refinement unfolds before your eyes; now, a nuance of aqueous caramel is the next slide in the carrousel. You smell the presence of vanilla more, but it all remains purposefully low-key. You will have understood that the composition cultivates a sense of non-fragrance fragrance, which is the equivalent of the subtlest of no-makeup makeup looks.
The final words belong to Heliotrope. Its scent, incidentally, was a very popular and discreet, non-advertized trend in 2016.
Its treatment in Tangier Vanille, you could characterize as one of the most vintage in style. It resembles the accord you find in Heliotrope by Crown Perfumery (discontinued). The flower is both dusty and pulpy - with a hint of old books (the vanilla) - a nice touch which stays in the drydown. The Madagascan vanilla lets out smoky accents in the sillage. It smells vaguely exotic. But above all - and in order to adhere to an aesthetic of self-effacement - the pleasantly bland and multifaceted nuances of Heliotrope flowers have been conjured up to create a paler, more floral - and above all, subtler vanilla perfume. You could disagree with this approach and request that Heliotrope be inscribed on the bottle instead. There are subtle vanillas, which remain primarily vanillic in spirit.
Your skin smells of old bookish paper, vanilla powder, musty leatherbound books, faint Moroccan goat skin - and fresh Heliotropin dough, sifted through a muslin or gauze. Tangier Vanilla is a self-effacing perfume, playing up secondary, subtle nuances - but it is compelling in its own way. However, in the end, expect more an indirect Heliotrope perfume than a direct Vanilla one. When it smells of Morocco, it is as if in a distant echo of the past.
Fragrance notes: Madagascar Vanilla, crisp Bergamot, velvety Bulgarian Rose, Amber, smooth Sandalwood, and soft Musk.

Nicolaï Rose Royale Gets Inspiration From The Garden Of The Palais-Royal (2017)

 

Rose_Royale_Nicolai.jpg
© Nicolaï
Nicolaï is launching a new perfume for Valentine's Day 2017, a rose soliflore baptized Rose Royale, named after the Palais-Royal garden in Paris...
Perfumer Patricia de Nicolaï was inspired by the quiet atmosphere of a garden which is a retreat from the din of the city, and by the roses it shelters. The inner courtyard garden is located by her new lab rue Montpensier. She reportedly rediscovered it in the springtime,
"After months of work and an infinite number of trials, here is Rose Royale. It is a natural, fresh and delicately fruity rose, as if you were smelling it at the end of its stem. Dressed with coriander and ambrette, the rosy heart of the perfume unfolds voluptuously. Without weighing anything down, like the Palais-Royal, a row of woodsy notes frames this heart to give it allure and sillage." (Editor's translation).
"Après des mois de travail et un nombre infini d'essais, voici Rose Royale. Une rose naturelle, fraîche, délicatement fruitée comme on la sent au bout de sa tige. Habillé de coriandre et d'ambrette, le cœur rosé du parfum s'épanouit avec volupté. Sans rien alourdir, à l'image du Palais-Royal, une rangée de notes boisées encadre ce cœur pour lui donner allure et sillage »"
The eau de toilette opens on head notes of cassis bud absolute, passion fruit and essence of bergamot. The heart features and absolute and essence of Turkish rose, coriander essence and ambrette seed essence. The base is anchored by immortelle absolute, sandalwood essence, gaïac wood essence and musk.
The boutique launch is set for February 14th, on Valentine's Day.

Perfumer Domitille Bertier signs the new composition. She is one of the three co-authors of the first Flowerbomb.
Flowerbomb Bloom eau de toilette has top notes of pomegranate, bergamot and grapefruit; the heart showcases a scent molecule meant to suggest fresh, unpolluted air, together with peony and jasmine; the base rests on vanilla, patchouli and musk.

Nirmala_Molinard_Le_Reve.jpg
The French house of Molinard Est. 1849 has released a new flanker perfume to Nirmala (1955) called Nirmala Le Rêve (The Dream), which accentuates its gourmand personality (the first scent was reformulated in the 1990s)...
The label describes the new scent as an "olfactory bonbon."

nirmala_le_reve.jpg
The eau de toilette opens on bergamot, mandarin, magnolia, and peach nectar followed by a heart of exotic fruits, orchid, rose, and violet petals; the base features a veritable nappage of sweet notes with sandalwood, patchouli, praline, chocolate, and vanilla.
According to Sephora France, this is a limited-edition.

Peperami Porc For Men Animeau De Toilette (2017)


Peperami_porc_for_men.jpg
British food brand Peperami, specializing in spicy sausages and "meaty banter", has released its debut fragrance for men called Porc for Men, an "Animeau de Toilette" - a first of its kind, with the implication that the cologne smells quite animalistic to the nose...
The limited-edition scent, to be launched on Wednesday, reportedly features an accord of "exquisitely porky musk."
'Sexy and seductive, Porc is a tantalising treat for the senses, perfectly encapsulating the very essence of meaty masculinity,'

Porc_for_men_Peperami.jpg
The "animeau de toilette" (animals in French cf. "animaux") has a face, that of Kirk Norcross from Towie.
The operation is a marketing effort aimed at rewarding fans and attracting attention to the brand. The perfume will not be sold, just distributed gratis to those who will make it to Blue Inc, or participate in social media competitions.
We'll tag this fragrance as another one of those dishevelled and playful "why-not perfumes", which like to show the world that anything odd can be bottled. Also, the movie Sausage Party might be an influence. And by the way, it might just be a matter of choosing the right communication angle, as some leather fragrances can smell like edible, savory meat.
