Ombre Mercure Eau de Parfum by TERRY de GUNZBERG

Ombre Mercure EDP by Terry de Gunzberg, part of her signature range, is described as: "Pure seduction, Ombre Mercure is an enchanting blend of iris and violet, which plunges us into the darkness of the night. Noble, powdery, feminine and rare, the scent unveils all the facets of a delicious woody iris. Formulated with the purest iris ‘butter', this olfactive treat flirts furtively with a few petals of rose, ylang ylang and jasmine. This subtle blending gives it softness with the darkness of the patchouli forming the spine of this fragrant composition. Intense, powerful and purring on the skin just like a feline, it reveals camphor-like vapours and a carnal instinct recalling mythical blends of the perfume world.

I've been loving Amouage lately, as well as full sized bottles they do some amazing gifts. Here are some of my favourites. The miniature set, which has 6 of their fragrances to try.   The included fragrances are Lyric, Jubilation, Reflection, Gold, Dia and Epic. I have to say I found Epic the most difficult to wear, it is so not me, with very strong green notes. Dia is beautiful as is Gold.  However I purchased a few other items in Lyric, which I found strangely bewitching. The travel spray It comes with three refills, in total you get 40ml. The solid perfume You also get 2 refills. If you like heady, luxurious, different perfume, definitely check Amouage out. Available at Harrods and Selfridges.

By Killian Beyond Love + Good girl gone Bad

By Kilian is a niche perfume brand, not easily available. I brought two of his refills, to help me decide which fragrance to buy in the full size bottle. The full size bottle is like a treasure, words cannot do it justice. I suggest you visit his website and see for yourself. www.bykilian.com Back to the fragrances, first up is Beyond Love. Here is how it is described: "An incandescent tuberose from India with fragrance that gradually unfolds. Cool and blue-blooded, the scent starts out by insidiously drawing attention to itself. The deeper aromas emerge progressively to bewitch one with opulent, narcotic charms. It delivers the coup de grace with a fabulous animalistic note which vanquishes all attempts at resistance." This is a heavy Tuberose perfume, only buy if you like Tuberose. I smell nothing else…
