Les nuits de vêpres. 

I can count real niche brands on the palm of a hand. Certainly, Naomi Goodsir Parfums is part of them. When you look inside the Goodsir universe, everything is under the veil, but intriguing and captivating. Externally, what we can see, captivates me. Aesthetically, I would like to have each fragrance. My whisper in the dark is Cuir Velours, perfume for which I think every lover of leather perfume should have in collection. The same goes for Nuit de Bakélite, a unique tuberose as a collection edition.

I can freely say that I did not smell anything similar. Nuit de Bakélite is an exorbitant and brutal green tuberose. Completely another take on tuberose, for which you did not have the opportunity to experience before. It’s not like Fracas, reference tuberose. It’s lovely, different, green. It is loaded with galbanum, roots and minerals. The heart is an infusion of tuberose, strong and spell-bounding, green, hypnotic, vegetal and enchanting. It is a very interesting perfume of tuberose because it is different, unique. Underneath the brutal tuberose is soft, suede leather. So interesting.

There is something enchanting about it. When I was living in Paris, I discovered that every day at 17h45 at Victor Hugo’s intriguing Notre Dame are Les Vêpres. Vesperal singing followed by magical organ. It was so fascinating that you could barely see how melody floats from one stone wall to another. Nuit de Bakélite would definitely be my choice N° 1 for Les Vêpres.

This is extremely good work by Isabelle Doyen, ISIPCA’s ex-student who is a part-time teacher there. Nuit de Bakélite has the famous signature of Naomi Goodsir and that is uniqueness. It is as addictive as drinking cocktail called ‘vesper’, when you are enchanted, but don’t know whether you will be poisoned or not. I tell you, it is worth of risk.

Juraj, BL’eauOG

My name is Juraj Sotosek-Rihtarec and I am the only person that runs this BL’eauOG. BL’eauOG is the play of words meaning “blog” and “eau” which means “water” in French, allusion to “Eau de Parfum” for example, and you read it simply as “bloog”. I started my blog several years ago and I imagined it as a place where I can express my critics on the world of fine perfumes. You can find new perfume reviews, interviews, articles about the perfume and something very interesting – video campaigns I did for perfume brands and olfactive dinners which I regularly do (dinner inspired with perfumes). I studied two Masters, one in Croatia and second one in Paris, which enabled me to become the insider of the industry. Life in Paris changed my opinion about perfumes and consequently, my taste changed. I am most proud of being a TED lecturer. I hope you will enjoy this blog and my articles on perfumes.
