  • Orto Parisi

    This amazing new launch from Alessandro Gualtieri, the Nose extraordinaire behind Nasomatto, is bound to make an impression. A collection of 5 remarkable unisex fragrances that are as attractive as they are thought-provoking and mysterious. Orto Parisi is inspired by the memories of Alessandro's grandfather's home.

    BERGAMASK - Citrus Musk. ‘Berga’mot is a very fresh citrus fruit. ‘Mask’ to capture the musky odor expelled by a fresh kill.

    BOCCANERA - Oriental, Spicy, Vanilla. Boccanera means ‘dark mouth’ in Italian. Nature offers dark holes that express sensuality in an erotic dark way.

    BRUTUS - Aromatic, Fougere. In reference to the Roman senator Marcus Junius Brutus, who was known for his lack of eloquence.

    STERCUS - Floral, Woody, Musk. From latin meaning ‘feces’.

    VIRIDE- Green, Woody. Viride comes from Latin meaning ‘green’. GREEN/VIRILITY.

     

  • Back to fragrance school

    One of the most exciting events of this summer was our fragrance workshop with Saskia Wilson-Brown, Founder and Executive Director of the The Institute for Art and Olfaction which advances public and artistic engagement with scent by providing accessible and affordable education.

    In the cosy event room of the Petit Ermitage Saskia introduced us the basics of fragrance making; a brief historical background presentation led to the introduction of perfumery basic ingredients and finally to making  our very own fragrance one molecule at the time.

    My creation for the day was Paol-Eau de Toilet, my uniquely fresh and bright blend of Bergamot, Labdanum, Violet, Amber and Vetiver.

  • Art Basil

    The  common basil is as popular as it is fragrant and delicious. It appears on as many dishes as it does in fragrances and with different degrees appreciation in different countries across the globe. In Greece however it appears to be a thing of national pride and you'll notice proudly cultivated bushes in every household.

  • Five Essentials for Men

    5 MUST HAVES FOR MEN

    Update your Cologne. Aqua Universalis and Aqua Vitae by Maison Francis Kurkdjian are ideal for casual occasions but also suitable for the office. Both distinctive, gently citrusy and lightly floral they feel like a breath of fresh air and wear like a crisp white shirt.

    #aquauniversalis #aquavitae

    New shades. Trends come and go but elegance is timeless. Persol Eyewear combines highly engineered frames with a casual sense of luxury that only enduring brands can offer. Try the classic folding style that fits in your pocket for that ultimate touch of Steve McQueen.
    #foldingpersol
    The Panama. Unavoidable for our climate. Choose a reinvented classic from Paul Smith or Anthony Peto and add a designer touch to your wardrobe without having to step out of your comfort zone.
    #paulsmith #anthonypeto
    Wallet. Yes, it does look old! Like all accessories they get worn-out after a year of wear-and-tear and although we might not like to take it out as much as we do we ofter have to show it. Forget the bi-fold Grand Dad style and opt for a contemporary slim-line to update your essentials: ID Card, 1 Visa, 1 Amex, 2 Business Cards and $50 in loose currency should be enough to cover just about anything for a night. Choose Comme des Garçons or Paul Smith to look the part when it's time
    to perform.

    Embrace a new evening fragrance. Times have changed, whether for a formal occasion or for a romantic soirée, aftershave alone just won’t do anymore. Opt for something subtle but with character. Cuirs by Carner Barcelona that whispers sexy and mysterious or maybe Boutonniere by Arquiste; an approachable fragrance with a sophisticated allure… Wonderwood by Comme des Garçons will emphasize your modern edge with a no-nonsense appeal while Tabacco Toscano by Santa Maria Novella will leave your impression without putting you in the center of attention. Just remember, how you smell is just as important as how you look.
