Late Summer Sampler

The Les Cocottes de Paris trio is the new chapter by Anaïs Beguine (of Jardins d’Écrivains).

The perfumes tell the memorable stories of three nineteenth-century French courtesans:

La Castiglione‘s combination of notes is utterly unique, ranging from citron and mugwort to licorice, myrrh and styrax. A ride to the fascinating darker side…

Melle Cléo is an unusual floral for those who prefer no sweetness. It is fresh and delicate in a substantial sort of way.    

La Belle Otero opens with a sweet neroli/fig tempered by the spice of pepper/ginger. Violet and a dry iris evolve into a woody dry down. Its progression is captivating.


Framboise Noire by Shay and Blue made its debut this week. With notes of black raspberry, Iris pallida, white oud and dark woods- all perfectly balanced to prevent it from becoming too sweet or fruity. Darkly noir.

An Air of Despair was just launched by Josh Meyer at Imaginary Authors. This limited summer edition focuses on cedar, with saffron and musk working their magic to provide an ode to the outdoors.

Jul et Mad‘s new trilogy of perfume extraits, Les White, continues their line of modern, refined fragrances using the best of ingredients. Madeleine and Julien enlisted the assistance of award-winning Luca Maffei to create Néa and Garuda. Nine-Shar’s nose is Sidonie Lancesseur. 

Garuda is as smooth as metal, as warm as saffron and as exquisite as the Cambodian oud in its heart. Its fruit and spice opening combination leads to an oud accord that is modulated by saffron and rum. Its base of smooth and comforting woods extends its silky warmth.  

Nin-Shar opens with a rich bergamot + rose liquor blend. Turkish rose and Egyptian jasmine become evident in the heart, continuing the display of the rose’s soft, floral petals to the green leaves, steam and thorns, and all the way to the roots with the earthy, woody base of oud, cedar wood and sandalwood.  

Néa is composed around a gourmand accord with rich oriental influences. A beautiful fruit combination of date, pomegranate and plum opens the scent, eventually accented by rose and jasmine. It progresses through a woody dry down, finishing with its gourmand vanilla/benzoin/tonka bean flourish.

Father’s Day: The Possibilities!

Looking for ideas for Dad? Not quite sure what he will like?

Indigo suggests a few fragrances to help your choice become a bit easier:

Acquasala by Gabriella Chieffo is a thoroughly modern, salty, marine and spicy scent, backed by incense and oakmoss.

Mahon Leather by Floris London is an elegant, woody fragrance with key notes of leather and saffron woven into an elegant heart of vetiver and underscored by deep woods and amber.

Classic Opoponax by Von Eusersdorff opens with a rose/jasmine combination that deftly moves into the heart of its objective: a resinous, balsamic sweet myrrh. Benzoin and sandalwood accent the headiness. Its longevity is enhanced by the amber/vanilla/patchouli base, with a bit of castoreum thrown in for depth. Very smooth.

Salt Caramel, the classic by Shay and Blue, is one of the most popular fragrances for men in the shop. It’s gourmand opening drifts into sea salt, tonka bean and sandalwood- a combination that takes one to a deeper edge. It is addictive!

R’oud Elements by Kerosene reveals soft wafts of woods- oud and sandalwood, accented by amber, vanilla and lavender . The scent is soft, deep and longing for closeness and invitation.


To ensure sufficient time for delivery, all web orders should be placed by Wednesday, June 17th.  Complimentary gift wrap is available-  just ask!

Dark Florals


Dark Florals in Traditional Home’s May 2015’s Secret Garden:

“When set against a dark, inky background, colorful florals seem to radiate a larger-than-life presence. Depending on their pattern and hue, the blooms appear either electrified and voluminous or sophisticated with a slight edge. So take some time to stop and smell these roses.”


We decided to find Indigo’s dark florals and share them with you as we enter the height of the floral season. Stop by for a sniff!


Asphalt Rainbow by Charenton Macerations definitely falls under the sophisticated but edgy category. It is described as “a roughed up rose that’s been hyper-colored, torn apart and twisted on its head, then nailed to the wall for your sniffing pleasure.” Need we say more?


Shay and Blue’s Atropa Belladonna is just what atropa belladonna purports to be: bewitching and mesmerizing. With the heady white blossoms of jasmine and narcissus combining with cassis berries and Bourbon vanilla, it is a beauty.


ROSE flash by Tauerville is an extrait strength rendition of rose in all its glory. There is nothing shy about this rose; you will be asked, “What are you wearing?!” Its sweetness is tempered by the woods and spices that Mr. Tauer is so well known for.


Neroli Blanc Intense by Au Pays de la Fleur d’Oranger is not an innocent neroli or orange blossom perfume. It says evening, date night, come hither, with the base notes of vanilla, balsam and benzoin turning on the charm.


Rose Cut by Ann Gerard bursts forth with a bubbly, happy presence of aldehydes and pink pepper. An exquisite rose quickly becomes evident, which eventually settles down into one heck of a sexy rose and patchouli blend that lingers till dark…


Thirty Three by Ex Idolo is deep, velvety and sensual. Equally memorable on males or females, Thirty Three is all about a rose and its relationship with a fabulous oud.
