Petra: I really enjoy wearing Liqueur Charnelle because its is boozy yet fresh, wearable , festive, warm sexy elegant.

Anna really enjoys wearing Bois Naufrage; a creamy fragrance with fig and wood.
Tanja, founder of Perfume Lounge says: Of the many creations by Pierre Guillaume I rediscovered the beautiful Sorong 20.1. A fascinating and mystical fragrance around (frank)incense, with warm woody resins as olibanum, kyara wood, benzoin and labdanum. I simply keep sniffing my skin, so balanced and appealing.
Joy loves Jardins de Kerylos: this is a lovely green and joyful fragrance. The fig makes me feel summery even in winter.
Chester loves Tubereuse Couture: a bubblegummy take on tuberose, far too sweet when I first smelled it but it has grown on me and it's not your average white floral perfume.
