Perfumerie Fragonard - Le Jardin De Fragonard collection

Here at The Amazing Blog we love a good scent, especially one that comes from a great heritage. Founded in 1926 by entrepreneur Eugène Fuchs, Perfumerie Fragonard was established to sell perfumery products directly to tourists who were discovering the French Rivera’s charms. Fuchs chose the name after the famous Grasse-born painter, Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806), as a tribute to the town of Grasse, the refinement of 18th-century arts, as well as representing his desire to run his business in accordance with traditions. This spirit has been loyally perpetuated by the three succeeding generations who have run and are still running the company.

We love how Perfumerie Fragonard combines tradition with a modern attitude, and we were delighted to receive their Jasmin Perle de Thé eau de parfum (£30 for 50ml) and Jasmin de Fragonard collection (ranging between £10-£18) to try out.

Jasmin-Perle de Thé translates to Jasmine-Pearl Tea. This beautiful and elegantly feminine scent is reminiscent of flowering jasmine, and with additional notes of lemon, bergamot, honeysuckle, green tea, white cedar, guaiac wood and white amber, which makes for a wonderful summer perfume.

We also loved the Jasmin de Fragonard collection, an exclusive range that pays homage to the town of Grasse. Topped by head notes of bergamot and orange blossom, “Jasmin” eau de toilette develops heart notes combining three jasmine varieties (Grasse, Egypt and India) on an amber base. The collection comprises of soaps, candles, toiletry bags, gift sets and decorative objects. Both the Jasmin Perle de Thé eau de parfum and Jasmin de Fragonard can be purchased from the Fragonard website, or from Marks & Spencers.

Jul Et Mad - Aqua Sextius

We here at The Amazing Blog know how hard finding the perfect fragrance can be. So when something new like Jul Et Mad’s Aqua Sextius came along, one can only imagine how excited we were to expand our assortment of scents and give it a try. Needless to say, we were absolutely thrilled with the product.

The first thing that caught our eye about Jul Et Mad’s Aqua Sextius was that the liquid is a peculiar light green hue, reminding us of a breath of fresh air. Aside from being fascinated by the colour, the fragrance had a distinctive ability to provide dual sensations after being sprayed. The initial scent is a combination of citrus, bergamot, mandarin, orange and grapefruit, making us feel like we we’re enjoying a sunny day at the beach. We then instantly cooled down and enjoyed the blend of tea notes, powdery mimosa blossom, white flowers, and fig and pine tree resin. The array of ingredients in this product allows the fragrance to create an all around fresh and light summery atmosphere.

Jul et Mad Aqua Sextius comes in a beautiful 50ml bottle. The company also introduced special 20 ml travel packaging named Le Compagnon, ideal for those who want to test the fragrance before purchasing a large bottle. Each comes in a box made of grey leather and contains the product along with an additional 7ml travel bottle, giving customers the option to refill. For those who love miniatures there is also a LOVE DOSE 5ml bottle available with all four perfumes.
