  • While there are many places in NYC to buy luxe goodies and perfumed delights; there is no place quite like LAFCO. ‘The Luxury Articles and Fragrance Company’ has stood at 250 Lafayette for the last six years and houses a collection of some of the most exclusive and historical fragrances in the world. LAFCO is <... >

  • FACT: The National Retail Federation says that “gift cards and cash are going to remain the most popular gifts for graduates this June”. FACT: Graduates aren’t just from colleges and high schools. According to a NPD, a marketing research group, “65% of girls between the ages of 10-13 (middle and junior high girls) wear fragrance”. <... >

  • Perhaps no other flower used in perfumery has been so maligned. Violets? Probably your first thought is of a ‘shrinking violet'; someone who ducks for cover, tongue twisted and shy. Violet flowers are often hidden between their leaves, but no one is quite certain when this phrase became part of our vernacular. According to most <... >

  • May ‘flowers’ with new fragrances from a few of our favorite niche and fine fragrance perfumeries. I am fascinated by an unassuming Swiss perfumer who ‘paints’ fragrances at his lab in Zurich. His name is Andy Tauer and if you are not familiar with his scents, they are among the most beautiful fragrances I have <... >

  • There are two types of women in Manhattan; Bergdorf Goodman shoppers and women who love fragrance who will become Bergdorf Goddman devotees.

  • Pearls are prized for their luster and rarity. Likewise, Perles de Lalique will enchant spicy chypre lovers with its notes of bergamot and pepper highlighting rose and iris. This is a nice chypre,(oak moss, vetiver, and patchouli), BUT the flacon…the perfume is housed in one of the most exceptional flacons we have seen this year. <... >

  • I usually pass on most white flower scents- the gardenias, the jasmines and the tuberoses. I find them overwhelming or not quite right for my particular chemistry (unless used in a supporting role). Ladies, love your Fracas, celebrate your Carnal Flowers, and inhale the jasmine in your A la Nuit, but I reach for fragrances <... >
