Friday Favorite | Eau de Toilette Pivoine by Fragonard

Friday Favorite | Eau de Toilette Pivoine by Fragonard

Friday Favorite | Eau de Toilette Pivoine by Fragonard

When I was killing time at Nice airport two weeks ago, the eau de toilette Pivoine by Fragonard caught my eye immediately.

I am a huge admirer of Fragonard, the famous perfume house from Grasse. Many years ago, I visited this factory. It was very interesting to learn more about the process of creating perfumes.

The peony flower is Fragonard’s flower of the year. The peony is one of my favorite flowers. Fragonard writes on its website: The Peony expresses the contradictions of a woman’s soul, the complexity of her feelings and the modesty of her emotions…

Friday Favorite | Eau de Toilette Pivoine by Fragonard

A soft and gentle creation, Fragonard’s Peony fragrance emanates fruity redcurrant, rhubarb, and mock orange notes. Its heart notes of three peonies (pink, red and white) rest on notes of iris, musk, and amber. Its delicate fragrance has inspired a range of perfumed products, available as a limited edition.

This fragrance brings me back to hot summer days at the Cote d’Azur. Strolls along the Promenade des Anglais. The sounds of the cicadas. Long lazy afternoons on the beach. Exploring medieval villages….It brings nice memories and that’s why I call this perfume my Friday Favorite!

What’s your favorite perfume and why?

Little Paris in Amsterdam

Little Paris in Amsterdam

I have a dilemma: I love Paris and I love Amsterdam. Paris is 500 km far, Amsterdam 100. So the decision is clear: I go more often to Amsterdam. Last, I discovered Parisian influences in Amsterdam, a little Paris in Amsterdam,  so if you have the same “problem” as I have 🙂 then read my tips and book that ticket to Amsterdam 🙂

Photography | Red Roses Details

Flowers and especially red roses have a special place in my heart and lately I love to capture the details of red roses and other flowers. When I see flowers in shops or in nature I always make photos of them. It is something I really love to do, besides of taking pictures of landscapes, buildings and fashion. I am very interested in the details of flowers and macro photography altogether.

How do the leaves grow? How many petals has a flower and how is it “built?” I really love to research it. It gives me inspiration and it is very restful. So you will see more of this photography on my blog!
