If you happen to visit New York City before November 1st, be sure to go to the New York Botanical Garden‘s Frida Kahlo exhibit on Art Garden Life. Frida’s colorful (and short) life is interpreted in the growing medium of the garden and its blooms.
The basis is color, the bonus is scent.
Both are befitting of and reflective of her art.
Bold reds and oranges, bright yellows, cool purples and healing whites were all integral to the paintings of Frida Kahlo.
Many of the flowers- esclepias, passion flower, zinnias bougainvillea and sedum have very subtle scents.
The Oriental lilies, marigolds, gardenias and jasmine are very scented and frequently included in the roster of notes used in perfumes.
Besides her love for flowers and her garden, one also has the opportunity to observe more than a dozen of her paintings and works on paper.
This is a reimagining of Frida’s studio at the Casa Azul, her Mexico City home.
Tonight, July 18th, En Voyage‘s new perfume, Frida, makes its debut on the West Coast at Tigerlily Perfumery.
We congratulate Shelley Waddington on her new ode to Frida and look forward to receiving it at Indigo!
Finding a scent that matches her essence is the key to success with the Epicurean Mother. She’ll instinctively pay attention to the ingredients and may even opt for the unexpected. Lavender, vanilla and spices are within the comfort zone of the passionate gourmand.
Like This, by État Libre d’Orange, will delight her senses with its unexpected olfactory assortment of notes. Created with Tilda Swenson in mind, one can expect that it will make its own statement with a distinct gourmand quality.
Indigo Vanilla, created by Shelley Waddington of En Voyage Perfumes, is an unconventional gourmand with a subtle spice trail complimenting its focus on violet. Yes, there is very good vanilla, but don’t worry, Indigo Vanilla avoids being too sweet or edible. It’s just plain beautiful.
Provanilla (Providence Perfume Co.) also has to be included for Our Epicurean Mother. Whether your Mother is a connoisseur of vanilla or not, she will love Charna Ethier’s uniquely creative ode to vanilla. Not only does Charna incorporate five different (sublime) vanillas, she discovered that adding the unexpected twist of a clean aquatic accord keeps the fragrance light and fresh throughout.
