Dear Diary Perfumes

Perfume house from Paris born in 2015.

Dear Diary Paris

Yeah, Paris is full of wonders and undiscovered stories. That's why I will always return to the city and exploring new things will stay as the eternal charm of the city. The city spoiled me when  was living in it because I had opportunity to be a part of it. Unexpected encounter happened month ago, when I discovered Dear Diary Paris perfume line. Completely new perfume line that tells personal stories.

Parfum d'Habit by Maître et Gantier

Les Caprices du Dandy 

A caption of Maître et Gantier and the noble atmosphere
This perfume is one of those when words are not enough to describe it. Sometimes, the one is simply afraid of not capturing well the grandiosity of perfume. Parfum d'Habit is certainly one of the monuments of the modern perfumery. It's the one that marked the era and it still rocks.

Intervju: Jelena Djukic - beauty blog superstar

Zanimljiva, vesela i pametna - upoznajte Jelenu, autoricu poznatog beauty bloga

Jelena Djukic - Moj Neseser (slika: Igor Prusac)

Prije svega, moram se ispricati jer nemam dijakriticke znakove. Koristim francusku tipkovnicu koja mi ne dopusta tipkanje na hrvatskom jeziku. Nego, vratimo se na temu. U zadnje vrijeme sam napravio puno intervjua s parfumerima i ljudima iz parfemske industrije. Takodjer, primijetio sam da sam zapostavio hrvatski jezik na blogu. Odlucio sam se iskupiti intervjuom sa jednom fenomenalnom i zanimljivom osobom.

Ona dolazi iz Srbije, po struci je znanstvenica i suradjuje s jednim Njemackim institutom. Dakle, s njom nema sale. Tokom godina, na noge je postavila svoj beauty blog koji se zove MOJ NESESER gdje pise o svojoj strasti prema beauty proizvodima. S vremenom, blog je postao iznimno poznat i utjecajan, a samim time, i Jelena je postala poznata osoba i autoritet na podrucju skincarea i make-upa. Blog je prosirila na lifestyle i putovanja te samim time postaje i sve zapracenija na drustvenim mrezama.

Hvala Jeleni na svemu sto je ucinila za mene, a Vama zelim da uzivate u ovom intervjuu u kojem mozete saznati nesto vise o njoj i njenom uspjehu!

Quintessence Paris - Figue

The scent of childhood

Quintessence Paris Figue
While the candle lovers and perfume fanatics are waiting Angèlys, the new Christmas candle by Quintessence Paris, I am exploring the scent of my childhood. 

I am in love with Quintessence and their products because I think that no other brand has so refined candles and wax scents. Quintessence candles are impregnated with lot of essential oil and those are real perfumers who worked on the wax components. The high quality enables a big diffusion in the room and makes it a perfect scented space.

I felt in love, one more time, with another Quintessence candle called Figue. I remember my summertime with my parents in Croatia in Adriatic coast. Near the beach were trees of wild figs. The wind has brought fig seeds and that's how they grow there. It was the most tasty fig I ever tasted and since then, it became my childhood memory, but also, one of the happiest memories I have. This candles has a soft, gentle scent of milky fig mixed with light woods. It's a fruity and woody candle that might make you feel like on holidays!

Mine for a little shorter, but I can tell you that his scents marked very significant part of my life too. I am his huge fan and admirer of his creations and this brings it to another level - room sprays and candles.

Agonist Parfums - Onyx Pearl

Scandinavian coldness

Onyx Pearl by Agonist

A perfume cold as the heart of your ex love. It's one beer commercial that reminded me of this motto, but that can rightfully be the motto of Onyx Pearl too. I am a big fan of cold, icy scents because they remind me of elegance. This is Onyx Pearl to me, a cold, elegant, aristocratic scent.

Interview with Agonist Perfumes!

Welcome to their world

Christine & Niclas - the founders of Agonist Perfumes

When you are a crazy passionate lover, like me for instance, then you know no boundaries when it's all about perfume. Sometimes, I believe my passion will completely overwhelm my behavior. My latest love and discovery are AGONIST Perfumes that are coming from cold Sweden. On the one hand, I was attracted with their Scandinavian and fluid design, crystal clear bottles that are made with every detail. I thought that Kilian and Ramon Monegal have the most beautiful bottles, but no, AGONIST is going to this iron throne. 

I am very honored that I can feature this beautiful interview with two charismatic souls behind the brand, Madame Christine and Monsieur Niclas who are behind this brand. It's a perfume story of two people and their life, translated into various juices and some collaborations. They started without business plan, but ended as the successful perfume story. In me, they have a very big admirer and follower of their work. Please, enjoy this interview where you can meet those two persons more closely.

I was looking forward to meet my friends, but one thing made me excited in particular - to visit the new Parisian boutique of Pierre Guillaume.

Interview: Roberto Drago - founder of Laboratorio Olfattivo & Kaon

Welcoming Pitti Fragranze with Roberto Drago

Mister Roberto Drago
I remember well my first attendance to Pitti. That was Pitti in 2013 when I drove like crazy from Zagreb because I thought Florence was closer than expected. It was my first big networking in a perfume world. I will particularly remember the first evening - it was a dinner before a big table, around 20 people, with creators of Jul et Mad, Olivier Durbano, Pierre Guillaume from la Parfumerie Générale and my friends from Sens Unique, the best Parisian perfumery. I was amazed. On the head of the table was a discrete gentleman with glasses, stick and charismatic smile. Day later I realized, that was Roberto Drago, the founder of Laboratorio Olfattivo and Kaon, distribution company. I noticed that he speaks several languages, he behaves like a gentleman and has captivating charisma. I am very honoured that he is here now, making an interview. Please, enjoy in this interview about perfume world, his beautiful brand Laboratorio Olfattivo and his fragrant life!
