Fragrance: Nejma Le Sublime EDP

Posted on November 8, 2017

Hi Guys!

I’m back again today with a gorgeous brand new niche fragrance to share with you – Nejma Le Sublime, which is a beautifully delicate floral scent, perfect for treating yourself to, or a loved one for Christmas 😉

If you’re not familiar with the brand, Nejma (which means the good star or lucky star) was created by Marie Lise Bischoff. During a journey to the Far East, Bischoff attended a reading of an Oriental fairy tale and fell under the spell of Nejma, who would then become her muse and inspire her to create a new line of perfumes.

Nejma is a charming and radiant with amazing beauty, and one day The Vizire visits her city and they totally fell in love. But she isn’t a Princess, so after a lot of fights between both families, they finally get married. From their love story, seven girls were born, and this is the story of how the original seven Nejma fragrances were created; a mix of different spices that each have in common the precious and warm scent of Aoud, giving Nejma its signature charm.

Nejma fragrances are created with diverse ingredients from distant countries, each mixed with Aoud, and Bischoff describes her fragrances as being very rich, exclusive, modern, sensual and powerful… giving you the opportunity to create your own fragrance signature, recreate a memory or to just feel desirable…

I have Le Sublime from the Nejma Private Collection – Le Sublime is a beautifully delicate fragrance, with a comforting, warming aroma that feels like a close embrace with a loved one. I think this is just the perfect scent to wear this time of year, it’s sweet and feminine, but not overly so, and lingers on the skin for hours.

Le Sublime opens with notes of fresh, juicy fruits, including Bergamot, Grapefruit and Passionfruit, leading to a bouquet of precious flowers – Orange Blossom, Jasmine and Rose blend together beautifully to give this scent a soft floral heart. The base of sweet Brown Sugar, Caramel and Dark Chocolate mixed with woody Patchouli and Cedar round the scent off in a warming and sophisticated trail.

  • Top Notes : Yellow Mandarin Bergamot, Pink Grapefruit and Passion Fruit.
  • Heart Notes : Orange Blossom Absolute, Grandiflorum Jasmine, Damascena Rose and Magnolia.
  • Base Notes : Virginia Cedar, Brown Sugar, Patchouli and Dark Chocolate.

Nejma Le Sublime is available now now at  and .

Fragrance: Penhaligon’s Luna Eau de Toilette

Posted on October 11, 2016

Hi Guys!

When it comes to fragrance, Penhaligon’s really does tick all the boxes for me. Both their packaging and bottles are beautiful – they make me think of fairy tales, whimsy and elegance – and on top of this, their fragrances are just mesmerising.

Today I have Penhaligon’s Luna Eau De Toilette to share with you – based on an ancient mythical love story, Luna of course represents the moon…

In ancient Greek mythology, the Goddess of the Moon placed Endymion, the most handsome son of Zeus, into a perpetual slumber so that she could gaze upon him forever, his stunning face unmarked by the passage of time. The wishes of the Goddess were granted, and Endymion slept on for all eternity, his smile everlasting. And no wonder, for he spent his life forever dreaming that he held the moon, Luna, gently in his arms.

To celebrate this wonderful story which I love so much, Penhaligon’s have created a duo of fragrances – Luna, which is fresh and floral, offers a feminine counterpart to the woody leather notes of its more masculine partner, Endymion.

I’d actually say Luna is more of a unisex, or gender-free fragrance, rather than feminine. And as you can probably guess by the above excerpt, Luna has been inspired by the Goddess of the Moon, and aims to capture the essence of this mythical character.

The fragrance itself opens with surprisingly fresh and zingy top notes of Orange Birgrade and Lemon Primofiore, leading to a heart of crisp and dry Juniper Berry and Rose Accord, which is rounded of with a dark woody base of Fir Balsam, Amber Gris, and Musks.

  • Top Notes: Bergamot Oil, Lemon Primofiore Oil, and Orange Bigarade Oil.
  • Heart Notes: Rose Accord, Jasmine Petal Accord, and Juniper Berry Oil.
  • Base Notes: Fir Balsam, Amber Gris, and Musks.

Luna was not at all what I was expecting – I was imagining something quite floral and feminine, and that is definitely not what this fragrance is about. Luna is fresh and clean, whilst also sensual and most definitely complex – this is a must try for fans of niche scents.

Penhaligon’s Luna Eau de Toilette is £128.00 for 100ml and available now at .
