A new baby, Portrait of a Lady

Var på möte i Stockholm med Rodeo idag (förändring på sidan skall nämligen ske inom några månader!) och dök på hemvägen förbi Cow Parfymeri på Mäster Samuelsgatan. Tog mig i kragen och köpte med mig en efterlängtad bebis hem, något jag drömt bra länge om att äga en flaska av. Äntligen!

Portrait of a Lady från Frederic Malle, en sammetslen orientalisk doft av mörkröda rosor packad med patchouli och rökelse. Barockt, intensivt och romantiskt. Doftar precis som den människa jag vill vara, och det är väl exakt det en parfym är till för, eller hur?


I had a meeting in Stockholm with Rodeo today (there will be changes on the site in a few months!) and on my way home I stopped by at Cow Parfymeri. I picked myself up and bought something that I’ve been really longing for. Finally!

Portrait of a Lady from Frederic Malle, a velvety smooth oriental scent of dark red roses packed with patchouli and incense. Baroque, intense and romantic. Smells just like the person I want to be, and that’s exactly what perfumes are for, right?

    Seriously, the way you describe the scent of a perfume… I need to smell this, it sounds divine (:

    Oh my goodness, this sounds absolutely lovely! I’ve tested a few of the Frederic Maille fragrances and they are so unique. What a nice treat!

    Åh den har jag varit sugen på såååå länge! Doftar ju helt galet underbart, en personlighet på flaska typ. Dock tillåter inte plånboken en sådan investering riktigt ännu.

    Frederic Malle har verkligen en fantastisk kollektion. Själv har jag deras Lys Mediterranee, som är en blommig, frisk doft full av liljekonvalj (min favoritblomma of all times), men utan att vara söt och tung. Istället blåser en fransk, salt havsvind genom dessa daggvåta liljekonvaljer. Den liksom smälter in i huden perfekt.
