I wish you a happy scented new year, prosperity and a lot of money. There are many scented temptations to come, many beautiful scents and many new brands from all corners of the world.
I will take a long vacation from the virtual land because I want to update my first volume written a decade ago about the art of perfumes in the past and publish it very soon in my language. Limited edition, ultra expensive for those who desire to learn more than Internet gives for free. For this reason, I will write only very few reviews and only for those perfumes which will come, by miracle or chance, to me. With an owl, peut-être, like in Hogwarts - I am in a place with an impressive number of owls and crows (I see them every day, the reason why several articles had a "fairy tale" touch inspired by the upcoming OZ movie).
I am not in Paris, no luxury perfumeries around, no new reviews - only if they arrive by chance. History is more important than the new launches because "old souls" in a bottle do not have a brand to "promote" them with money and tell their stories.
There are however several new scents to present, those I received last year and the perfume draw.
A tip for buying a good perfume this year - chose everything green, "operatic" and "art", it is the major direction. "2013 c'est vert Calyx" and the next trend is VERDI, the bicentenary of the great composer. The perfume paradigm changes, the creation becomes symphonic (and symbolic), a celebration of the 8th art which brings everything together - plain bottles with minimalist design are out. My old articles about WAGNER (the other composer celebrated this year) and his vision about perfumes, music and the total work of art will guide you for a new vision. Another trend to consider is "Vert sève serpent", it is the year of water serpent - the temptation inside the garden of EDEN (green vert de liane+aqua+lush florals+milk womanity+aldehydes+ the accord of the original perfume from the 90's). There is also the perfume of ADAM I published the review in December, but I reverted it to draft the next morning until it will be available to consumers.

The new paradigm of perfume creation has nothing to do with what you have been used in the last decades. This is because a new generation of consumers has been nourished with other types of books, stories, ideas, notions about life and beauty.
Because I will not write so often and only when there will be a beautiful reason, there are many other new sites I recommend you in order to discover all sorts of new perfumes and new launches - you will find them on my blog list. I will enjoy the luxury called work - the "archaeology" of perfume, back to Egypt. Back to "papyrus" from the virtual scene of perfumes.
One hundred years ago, December 1912, the famous bust of Nefertiti was brought back to light. In January 1913, it arrived in Berlin in great secrecy. A Queen, a perfume and many cosmetic secrets from an old unpublished papyrus.
rendez vous at 8 O'clock with a new perfume in Berlin - Treffpunkt 8 Uhr because this year there is a new scented Trance in town - we wear 1A-33 from J.F. Schwarzlose with magnolia. The new perfumes from J.F. Schwarzlose are the incarnation of the glory of the perfume house a century ago - Berlin the roaring 20's and two hundred years of modern perfumes after Napoleon's defeat. The old perfume Trance was an homage to magician Houdini who lived in Berlin while 33 was the plate of the new metropolis. The house Schwarzlose has also a very dark story which makes the scents more intriguing and appealing to the consumers. The perfumes were the quintessence of modernity in Berlin made by master perfumers which were not known in Paris - the history of German perfume art was somehow forbidden or erased for obvious reasons - like the egyptian cartouche of the Amarna period.
