Time in a bottle: May 2015 favorites

Fashion:









 Perfumes: 






The story behind Volutes has me completely enchanted.  This was inspired by boat trips in the 1930's from Marseille to Saigon. The swirls of smoke in the air, the boat on the water, spice markets, wood paneling, and elegant ladies smoking Khedive cigarettes on the the top deck.






Eau Duelle centers around a deep vanilla. I didn't know what to expect with this one, but it turned out to be the best vanilla based perfume I've ever smelled. It's not sweet or cloying. I like to mix it with perfumes that need to be cozy and a little softer.
