Humiecki & Graef Candour EDT Perfume Review

Humiecki & Graef Candour

Humiecki & Graef is a line of perfumes that I really respect mainly for their unusual inspirations and the fact that many actually live up to their unusual inspirations. And in typical Humiecki & Graef fashion, Candour “describes the emotional state of the particular directness and open exchange between two (connected) people who left the tentative phase of their relationship far behind. Two people who have developed their own intuitive language.” OK, so this perfume has something to do with cohabitation. Or something.

Candour opens as… Continue reading

EnVoyage Perfumes Captured in Amber Perfume Extrait Review

Envoyage Captured in Amber

Captured in Amber is a perfume in EnVoyage Perfumes’ Souvenir de Chocolate Trio. This is a scent that is meant to “evoke the Victorian era fetish for the Orient“. And I get that from this sweet, animalic amber that uses materials from around the globe.

Captured in Amber is an amber gourmand. It opens as a rich, sticky honey that is sweet and animalic. It wears as a sweet yet animalic amber with dark, spicy Mexican hot chocolate. The best word to describe this heart… Continue reading | 4 Comments
