M. Micallef Ylang in Gold Perfume Review

Since we are talking about luxury perfumery today, I want to show you  a beautiful   M. Micallef Ylang in Gold perfume.

About the Brand

M.Micallef brand was created in 1996 by Martine Micallef, who is a beauty and wellness specialist and a painter, and Geoffrey Nejman, financial consultant in fragrances in Grasse. The brand was actually created from their love story and the brand’s perfumes are now available in 39 countries.

About the Perfume

YLANG IN GOLD is the third fragrance of the JEWEL collection, after M.MICALLEF JEWEL FOR HER and JEW EL FOR HIM.

The bottle is hand decorated with Swarovski crystals designed exclusively for the brand.  YLANG GOLD actually won 2nd prize for an AN ARTISTIC PERFUME for for an extraordinary perfume concept at Global Art of Perfumery exhibition.

One more special thing about this perfume is that it should leave a light and delicate pearly golden dust made of golden powder.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Fragrance Collection

Great news, Rouge Bunny Rouge launched their first fragrance collection which includes three perfumes.

Here are the details about each. I have used the descriptions from the brand as I have not tried them and can’t give my opinion.

Chatoyant
  • Top: Bergamot, Lemon
  • Heart: Orchid, Jasmine, Rose, Lily of the Valley
  • Base: Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Musk, Vanilla

 

“In a resounding ode to the temperamental feline species of the botanical world, orchid, a beautifully quirky fragrance exquisitely melds different worlds.

Fall prey to a curious odour with a passionately impulsive bloom. Fine-spun lemon, cocooned in rising bergamot bubbles, causes initial raptures of purring delight. A fleeting flash of citrus and milky fresh coconut-like tones announce orchid’s arrival.

With a gigantic presence this flower in majestic repose summons preternatural weaving of jasmine, lily and rose. Polished facets of sandalwood and cedarwood embedded with radiant vanilla and musk, assert a cool, sensual touch in the dry down. ”

Vespers

  • Top: Bergamot, Cinnamon Bark, Violet Leaves, Black Pepper
  • Heart: Green Apple, Muguet, Rose, Violet
  • Base: Cedarwood, Musk,
