Bergamot: What Is It?

Bergamot is one of the most commonly used ingredients in perfumes and, interestingly, has remained a favourite component of fragrance composition since fragrances were invented. Scents that comprise bergamot actually account for over a quarter of our perfumes at http://www.perfumeclearancecentre.com.au – 25% of our fragrances contain bergamot. That’s quite a number!

BUT WHAT EXACTLY IS IT???

Creative Ideas for Fragrance Storage

Expanding your collection of fragrances is always exciting. There’s something indulgent about choosing a scent for any occasion- a first date, an overseas holiday, a beach trip– even something as mundane as running down to the shops. Whatever the excuse, perfume has the unique ability to change the way you feel you present yourself to the world through scent- one of the most empowering gifts you can give yourself. And, if you don’t buy fragrance for yourself, chances are, someone’s bought it for you.

The House of Creed: A History Lesson

The House of Creed is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating perfume houses on the market. Founded in London all the way back in 1760 (!!!!!) it has remained managed by the same family over 6 generations.

Originally sold exclusively to Britain’s royal family and now trading all over the world, Creed, it could be argued, is the most exclusive and revered parfumerie ever to exist, and gives even Chanel, Dior and Givenchy a run for their money.

Part of Creed’s charm is their unwavering commitment to natural ingredients over synthetics. In their 255 years of trading (an achievement in itself), they have not included a single synthetic or manufactured component in any of their 72 fragrances.

Creed perfumes are as rich in composition as they are in history. One of their most celebrated scents for women, Fleurissimo, was famously commissioned for Grace Kelly’s wedding day in 1956, who then went on to declare that she was ‘quite taken with the fragrance’ and that it was to become her signature scent. Hardly surprising given her husband Prince Rainier of Monaco had the fragrance created in her honour. Queen Elizabeth the Second and Madonna also favour this floral scent, which is as floral as its name suggests, and is made up of bergamot, tuberose, bulgarian rose, violet, florentine iris and ambergris.

Master Perfumer Olivier Creed created his crowd favourite Spring Flower in honour of Audrey Hepburn. Nowadays, it remains popular among the likes of Lana Del Rey and Julia Roberts. Spring Flower is described as a fruity, floral fragrance, and it is- but it’s nothing like the sweet fragrances of today. The scent is full-bodied and timeless, and carries with it lasting grace and fortitude on the skin. Spring Flower is the floral fragrance for the woman empowered.

As well as their impressive fragrance repertoire for women, Creed scents for men have gained a cult following ever since Olivier Creed’s eponymously named fragrance hit the market. Since then, Tabarome Millesime has enjoyed great success amongst powerful men all over the world, including purportedly the Kennedy family and Winston Churchill. Tabarome Millesime is one of the world’s oldest scents for men and is steeped in the history of American politics.

Mother's Day Made Easy

Mother’s Day Made Easy

It’s that time of the year again: Mother’s Day, a day to commemorate mothers all around the world and anything and everything they do for their children (that’s you). You have three choices here- you can either:

1. Forget about it completely and realise finally that Mother’s Day is in fact tomorrow and the shops have closed and the only materials you have in your house/ sharehouse/ life are pom-poms and superglue and already this is shaping up to be the most pathetic homemade DIY Mother’s Day present imaginable and you can already see the disappointment in your mother’s eyes as she opens it and pretends to be chuffed.

2. Realise it’s impending, but make no tangible effort to sort yourself out for it. This is for the kids and fathers out there who print out ‘vouchers’ for ‘hugs’ or ‘spa days’ or ‘family picnics’ that never happen. OR EVEN WORSE: those that print out a picture of something that’s coming in the mail. ‘It just hasn’t arrived yet,’ you say to Mum. This may be true, but it’s because you ordered it yesterday, not because of Australia Post.

3.  OR. You can order something now! Better yet, why not order fragrance- something that women rarely buy for themselves, but appreciate it as much as if they did. We’ve done the hard yards for you and selected our top 5 fragrances popular amongst mummy dearests. You’ve still got time!

A Dummy's Guide To

A Dummy’s Guide To Flatlays

You could throw a rock and hit a flatlay on any social media platform nowadays. They look easy enough. A lipstick here (always unused), a pair of flats there, a designer keychain artfully splayed across a shaggy rug, a sprig of rosemary thrown in for good measure. But are flatlays as easy as they look? Do you simply lay pretty accessories flat on the ground and shoot wildly with your iPhone?
