I have long been a reader of Diane Pernet’s blog A Shaded View On Fashion, so I’ve been looking forward to the launch of her new range of perfumes for quite a while now. After getting my hands on some samples to test out, I’m happy to be able to say they are as wonderful as I imagined they would be. Though, I would expect no less from someone with such well refined taste & distinctive sense of style.
I never usually like to just copy out press release info, but the descriptions sum each of the scents up perfectly & are so beautifully written that I had to share –
TO BE HONEST
IN PURSUIT OF MAGIC
I found it hard to pick a favourite, as I fell in love with all but one of them instantly. They are all unisex, deeply layered & linger on the skin, seeming to evolve throughout the day, as you get a trace of something new each time you find yourself noticing the scent. After trying each of them out for a few days I settled on Shaded as my favourite, to me it smells of warmth, it’s comforting and sensual, and there’s a lovely contrast between the salt, smokey wood & a certain underlying sweetness. Whenever I wore this one I had people asking what I was wearing as I wafted by, it’s a unique, distinctive scent and perfect if you like your fragrances to feel personal & memorable. I like to keep my perfume selection very curated & small, I stick to the same ones like a signature, but this one is so special that I’ll definitely be adding it to my collection.
