Pure Virgin

The fragrance Pure Virgin is born from a simple idea; create a simple and comfortable perfume. As fresh and luxurious as a beautiful linen dress. A pure sensual luxury to be worn by men and women alike.

Created by Celine Ellena, Pure Virgin uses the best quality musk which reminds us of the sensation of silk mixed with cotton on the skin.

A Little French Chic

Well I can finally announce that my colognes from Astier de Villatte have finally arrived and I can heart-fully say that they were worth the wait.
Firstly their newest invocation is Cologne 1871 - in conjunction with French fashion label 'Commune de Paris'. Cologne 1871 opens with Sicilian lemon, rosemary and bergamote - alive and sparkling. Then beneath its temptingly bitter and slightly tarnished surface, Cologne 1871 hides a decisive powdery charm, suave labdanum and stryax resin infuse the woody notes of luxurious patchouli essence, cedar and vetiver. The base of coumarin, with notes of feshly cut grass, along with Benzaldehyde and its scent of powdery almonds, become mouthwateringly lovely upon ones skin.

The 3 original colognes are:

Eau de Cologne - this fresh splash will instantly wake up any sleeping beauty. A flare of verbena, aromatic effusions of lavender, rosemary, basil; the lift of a fleeting floral note and a trace of benzoin to secure a lasting freshness.

Eau Fugace - a flash of lightening, a sharp and lilting fusion of a spruce citrus blend, delectable orange, gentle bergamot and the greenest touch of lemon. As it develops on the skin there is a luscious trail of aromatic herbs and patchouli, sunny and clean.

Eau Chic - a genuine Françoise Caron original, under its tame exterior lies an explosive character. a subtle balance of white flowers (ylang-ylang, rose, tuberose) and the fresh intensity of rosemary, thyme, petitgrain citronnier and lavender.

They come in 150ml flacons and are priced at $149 each. Worth a spritz on your next visit to the store.
