Annick Goutal Nuit Etoilée & A Giveaway

AG-NUIT-ETOILEE-WOMENS

April in Paris. We were counting on sunshine-filled days with balmy breezes. Instead, we traipsed through the Tuileries, viewed the Eiffel Tower from the blustery Trocadero, and tiptoed through the Versailles Garden tulips with hats, scarves, gloves, and umbrellas blowing inside out. The most promising sign of spring we found was when we ducked into the Annick Goutal boutique on Rue de Castiglione. It was there that we first sampled Nuit Etoilée, the latest creation of Camille Goutal and Isabelle Doyen. One sniff and we were in the midst of a verdant, aromatic forest on a cool summer evening. This is truly a shared scent, with the traditional ribbed and ribboned bottle for women, and the masculine square bottle for men.

Nuit Etoilée won’t be available in stores until mid-May, but if you leave a comment below (the spring fragrance launch you’re most looking forward to? your favorite Paris memory? or just say hi!) we’ll enter your name in our giveaway to win a sample! Good luck!

Sniffapalooza Reads: Scent of Triumph (and a giveaway!)

scent-of-triumph-arc-1

For a perfume enthusiast & bibliophile, there’s nothing better than combining the two passions in a fragrant read. That’s why I can’t wait to delve into my Advanced Reader’s Copy of Scent of Triumph that just arrived in the mail today. It’s the debut novel of our good friend, fragrance expert Jan Moran, who is the author of Fabulous Fragrances I and II. And if you’ve ever played around with the Scentsa touch-screen fragrance finder at Sephora, that’s Jan’s creation too!

Scent of Triumph is the story of a Danielle Bretancourt, a talented young French perfumer and couture designer. Her saga is set in Europe and Hollywood during the turmoil of World War II. It takes the reader on a journey through devastating losses, struggles, and revenge, all handled with courage, spirit, and resilience.  Jan drew upon her research for Scentsa, as well as her own family history and her mother’s memories, in writing the novel. As an added treat, Scent of Triumph has a special aromatrack – a stunning perfume developed with V. Mane Fils, a fourth-generation French perfume house. Chimere was blended by perfumer Marvel Fields, who is also the current president of the American Society of Perfumers. It’s a rich floral Oriental blend centered on a warm amber accord, with notes of raspberry, mandarin, orange, jasmine, rose, tuberose, patchouli, sandalwood and vanilla.

Since we always love to share our good fortune, we’ve got an Autographed Advanced Reader’s Copy, and an accompanying sample of Chimere, to give away! Please leave a comment and tell us what’s in your fragrance library. One random winner will be chosen to receive the book & perfume sample. GOOD LUCK!

Sniffapalooza Reads: The Lantern

the-lantern

One of my favorite summer pleasures is to lose myself in a good book. There’s nothing like being totally immersed in a story that, like scent, transports you to another place and time. The Lantern, author Deborah Lawrenson’s first novel, does just that. An Advance Reader’s Edition of The Lantern arrived in my mailbox a few weeks ago and it has been my constant companion ever since.  Whenever I’ve got a spare moment, I steal away and read a chapter or two.  Set to release on August 9, this modern Gothic novel interweaves past and present through the voices of 21st century Eve and 20th century Benedicte. They alternate to tell the story of Les Genevriers, a hamlet nestled in the lavender fields of Provence.

As the characters develop and their tales progress, so does the fragrant back-story which provides insight into the 20th century French perfume industry. The violet waves of the lavender fields come so alive on the pages, you can almost smell the aromatic plants.  OK, I confess, I actually did smell lavender. While reading, I felt compelled to find my Norfolk Lavender and spritz both myself and the book’s pages for some true scent immersion.

Moment de Bonheur

Scents can magically transport you to another place and time. High above Madison Avenue, steps from a rooftop garden, Yves Rocher whisked us away to a Parisian street for a Moment de Bonheur. Having spent my teen years wafting in Chevrefeuille,  it was very exciting to attend the launch of this new fragrance. François Bousquet, Vice President Fine Fragrance Development and Consumer Insight at Firmenich, helped present Moment de Bonheur. We sampled the finished fragrance, as well as the individual scent notes, on blotters – rose centefolia, violet, patchouli & cedar. Perfumer Annick Menardo created the fragrance to provoke an instant of true happiness. Moment de Bonheur will be available in October 2011.

The cocktails and hors d’oeuvres were as pleasing to the eye as to the taste. The pink -green-yellow descending hues of the bottle are also reflected in the cocktail.
