Art de Parfum’s Halloween Essentials: The Witching Hour

I love this time of year! Even though I’m not a kid anymore, there is something very alluring about the idea of playing dress-up for Halloween. I love to stride through the streets of London, kicking over leaves and looking at all the lovely pumpkins glowing in the dark. If there is the scent of chestnuts roasting on the fire somewhere, then even better. Here is a list of my essentials for a great witching hour this Halloween.   The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgarov This is one of my winter favorites! Master and the Margarita is a thinly-veiled satire of life in Communist Russia where artists and writers regularly suffered great censure and persecution. It is scathing, clever,...

Art de Parfum's Guide to French Style

Ah, but the French are stylish, are they not? Who among us hasn’t gazed at photos of French fashion editors emerging from the Paris runway shows or even ordinary women on the streets of Paris with envy?

Signature Wild – Heat Seeking Signature

  Are you a hunter-gatherer? Some people – be it a man or woman – are just born to be the hunter-gatherers of this world. They burn with ambition, hone in on their target, and work very hard to get what they want. People such as this are passionate, focused, and even a little bit ruthless. They are also very sexy!   I made Signature Wild for the hunter-gatherers among us. It is a leather scent with a cool, anisic tint that is balanced by a warm, rummy fruitiness. Leather scents are a great match for hunter-gatherers because they mimic the slightly animalic feel of leather or suede on one’s skin, and remind us that sensuality lies right next to...

Top 5 Summer Fragrances

  What are the best fragrances to wear when the heat of summer arrives? Many people prefer to remain unscented during summer or to wear a simple eau de cologne straight from the fridge. But for me personally, a day without fragrance is like going out without my keys or my wallet, so when hot weather strikes, I opt for a perfume that is light and fresh, but still performs like a perfume – in other words, it doesn’t disappear in under an hour! My top 5 summer fragrances are therefore all scents that are fresh enough to provide relief against the heat, and contain enough complexity to develop, change, and keep me interested throughout the day. First up, we...
