  • Long before we knew we were leaving carbon footprints, and back in the days when drinking bottled water was tres chic, there was Mandy Aftel; owner and founder of Aftelier , the founder of the Artisan Natural Perfumers Guild creating fragrances that used only 100% natural ingredients. Most perfumers and corporations eschewed this methodology; natural <... >

  • 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. While the store’s wonderful and expensive array of fashion and accessories may not be in the budget this week, everyone, and I mean everyone must own at least one fragrance from the House <... >

  • “Modernity is the transient, the fleeting, the contingent; it is one half of art, the other being the eternal and the immovable.”- Charles Baudelaire Kilian Hennessy, the soft spoken and charming ‘scentsation” behind the By Kilian fragrance brand, could easily have walked out of 19th century France, realized that PDAs and cell phones are extremely <... >

  • 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 <... >

  • I am not an uptown girl (nosebleeds above 60th street). But I have friends who are, and they swear by Clyde’s On Madison for ALL their beauty needs. But what can make a pharmacy worth the trip to 74th and Madison, when you can find pretty much what you are looking for in your own <... >

  • Save the Poison, the Dirt and who’s canoodling Between The Sheets for water cooler Gossip, not for wearing in the workplace. Climbing the corporate ladder takes hard work, political finesse and being the best at what you do. Never mind the overbearing boss (unless of course you are the boss), or the mountains of paperwork. <... >

  • BN: Let’s start with the 800 lb gorilla in the interview. Why did you name such a sublime line of scents “CB I HATE PERFUME”? CB: Back in 1992 when I was planning my first company, I wrote a manifesto for myself explaining why I was making perfume in the first place. Since my training <... >

  • Beginning in October and ending somewhere around February 1st, a fragrance editor needs a break. I am meticulous about testing every scent we write about, so I personally road test at least ten fragrances a day. There are times when I feel like I cannot smell another thing. As the new fragrance releases for Spring <... >
