Scent Memories of My Father

Father’s Day is fast approaching and to celebrate my weekly Escentual post focuses on the best father of them all (in my humble opinion) – my dad. The post is a not only a tribute to the man himself but also a look back at the scents he has worn over the years – scents that have had an impact on the masculines I wear and enjoy.

Givenchy Dahlia Noir L’Eau

This week’s Escentual post is a review of a fragrance that took me wholely by surprise – Dahlia Noir L’Eau by Givenchy. The original Dahlia Noir made next to no impression on me whatsover (very much in line with most Givenchy offerings) and I am, as you know, not a massive fan of anything remotely green – so it is with great surprise that I give a big thumbs up to Dahlia Noir L’Eau!

La Fille de Berlin by Serge Lutens

It’s that time of the week again – Monday means another Escentual post and this week’s article takes a break from the usual A-Z and focuses on a review of the latest fragrance from the venerable perfume world of Serge Lutens. ‘La Fille de Berlin’ (The Girl from Berlin) is a rose of many textures inspired by the androgyny of German-American actress Marlene Dietrich.

D is for Dior…

In continuation of my Escentual A-Z of Fragrance, this weeks post for Escentual.com is all about the only ‘D’ that would be acceptable – Dior. Click on the link above to read my guide to the world of Dior and some of my favourite fragrances that the house has to offer.

Miss Dior Eau de Toilette

If you hadn’t guessed already, Monday is my Escentual post day and this week’s feature is a review of the newly relaunched Miss Dior Eau de Toilette. You know the one that used to be Miss Dior Cherie, but is now Miss Dior, not to be confused with the original Miss Dior which is now Miss Dior Original? Got that?

Despite the name-based confusion it is a very nice scent indeed, please click on the image above to see my review!

C is for Celebuscents…

Apologies once again for the lack of posts over the last few weeks, our little cat Paddington has been quite poorly, which mixed with a very hectic work schedule has meant that my head hasn’t really been in the right space for blogging.

Tomorrow I shall return with the next instalment in my ‘Guide to’ series, in the meantime please click on the image above to head over to Escentual.com to read the latest in the Escentual A-Z of Fragrance; ‘C is for Celebuscents…’
