Esxence 2016 by Radovan: Match of tuberoses – The most interesting tuberose perfumes I encountered at this years’ Esxence compared and evaluated. I found the creations from Le Galion and Pantheon to be the best, but the tuberosses from Giardino Benessere and Illuminum won’t dissappoint either.

Assemble your own eyeshadows palette – “or don’t do it at all”, is the actual conclusion of Romana’s adventurous experiment with disassembling the cosmetic product containers. Don’t try this at home, folks, seriously.
MONA DI ORIO: Bohea Bohème – a review of the latest perfume from the Mona di Orio house. Black tea with burned spruce needles seem to pull off the success. Romana is so excited about it, she says it actually brought her & Mona di Orio brand together.
MEMO PARIS: Marfa – Romana finds the fundamental ingredient of Marfa – the tuberose – to be “homeopatic”, as the distinctive white flower appears to be unusually tamed here. Recommended for those who normally stay away from the tuberose fragrances.
CHANEL: Jersey – Interestingly enough, this is not a review of the Chanel’s exclusive, but the commentary to the French fashion giant’s unsuccessful attempt to register a trademark for the word “Jersey”. Some things can’t be bought and we are happpy about it.
