Precious Liquid is a new brand of perfumes founded by wife and husband (Geo, a model turned entrepreneur and Richard Herpin¹, a classically trained perfumer). The perfumes are labeled as if they are single note/soliflores but they are more complex than their names imply. Precious Liquid encourages layering of their scents. There’s an option to buy fragrances in a set, 3D Set², so that you can layer as you please with perfumes that were built to work with one another. Or you have the option to wear them… Continue reading | 5 Comments

It’s said that the 2017 Pantone® Color of the Year Greenery is inspired by the first days of spring. It’s meant to represent renewal and connecting with nature. I like all colors, because with color it’s more about their relationship with other colors than the color itself. However, I’m not really feeling this shade of green. I don’t like the shade.
