MASQUE MILANO FRAGRANCES(Part 2)

MASQUE MILANO

Masque Milano, Part 2

Many of us haven’t traveled much over the past two years, but fragrance can be one way to connect with the world through our senses and our imaginations. Masque Milano may be based in Italy, but its founders and perfumers look far and wide for inspiration. 

Here are three bold scents from Masque Milano’s “Act II” collection that take us on olfactory trips and introduce us to time-honored ingredients and traditions from around the world.


MASQUE MILANO

KINTSUGI 

If you’re interested in Japanese culture, you may already know that kintsugi is a technique of repairing broken ceramics and accentuating the mended cracks with gold, a reminder that greater beauty can be gained through life experience. Masque Milano imagines a potter practicing kintsugi under a magnolia tree, and perfumer Vanina Muracciole includes this floral note as part of modern chypre composition. Kintsugi’s bergamot top note is as bright as gold and its deeper notes are as textured and cleverly fitted together as the pieces of a mended vessel: warm suede, bitter green leaves, a salty-musky ambergris, and more.


MANDALA

When we inhale this fragrance designed by Christian Carbonnel, we can imagine the sounds of spinning prayer wheels and chanting monks accompanied by the scent of sacred incense. A blend of myrrh, labdanum, and frankincense bordered in sandalwood and dusted in spice, this deep and aromatic fragrance is named for the “sacred circle” of the mandala, a graphic representation of the universe used in Buddhism and Hinduism. Worshippers focus on a mandala in order to visualize the cosmos and move towards enlightenment; we can incorporate fragrance into our own daily rituals.

HEMINGWAY 

Vetiver, a grassy plant native to Southeast Asia and now grown in additional warm climates, is prized for its fragrant roots. In this fragrance by Fanny Bal, vetiver oils sourced from Haiti and Java are paired with piquant rhubarb and ginger and a smooth cedar note. Vetiver smells earthy, slightly smoky, and a little rough-edged; it’s a fitting central motif for a tribute to the American writer Ernest Hemingway, who spent time in Havana, Key West, and the Bahamas and took literary inspiration from their Caribbean settings. Hemingway’s travels have become legendary. We might be staying closer to home this year, but we can always wander through scent!

MASQUE MILANO FRAGRANCES (Part 1)

MASQUE MILANO FRAGRANCES, PART 1

If we had to choose one word to describe Masque Milano Fragrances, we might say “passion.” The brand’s own passion—for storytelling, for the arts, for high quality and expert craftsmanship in their perfumes—is evident. Masque Milano also happens to offer several fragrances that capture different kinds of romantic passion. Whatever kind of love you’re experiencing (or hoping to experience) these days, from a fleeting encounter to true devotion, there could be a Masque Milano scent to accompany it. 

Here are three picks from Masque Milano’s “Act III” collection:


Love Kills

Roses can be a romantic cliché, but there’s nothing delicate or saccharine about this floral fragrance by perfumer Caroline Dumur. Taking the rose as its central motif, Love Kills traces an emotional arc from joy and intimacy to betrayal and loss. It starts off lush and bright, with vibrant Turkish rose enhanced by geranium and a lychee-like note. Its heart evokes a fruity red wine, but by the time it evolves fully, Love Kills has turned into something drier and duskier, like a flower fading into musky, crumpled petals and a bittersweet memory of desire.

L’Attesa

In L’Attesa, on the other hand, we get all the anticipation and none of the heartbreak. This composition by Luca Maffei suggests the anticipation of a romantic rendezvous on a summer evening, complete with freshly uncorked champagne, jazz playing in the background, and a warm breeze coming through the window. L’Attesa is a must-try for iris-lovers: elegant, yet a little earthy, it’s a cool and root-y iris soliflore with a dusty, leather-tinged drydown. Truly an amorous encounter that’s worth the wait, L’Attesa is a top-seller for good reason.


Tango

Lastly, for no-holds-barred sensuality, there’s Tango. An homage to passion as expressed in a daring dance for two, this fragrance was created by Cécile Zarokian. At first sniff, Tango seems like a classically composed pyramid of bergamot, jasmine, and amber. On skin, however, it unfurls layers of smoldering spice (including some provocative cumin) and animalic musk, plus an accord that appropriately suggests dark rum sweetened with honey. Intoxicating and intense, and more than a little dangerous, Tango lingers like the thought of a lover’s touch.

Do Fragrances Perform Differently In the Summer?

Summer is perfect for spending time outdoors, swimming in delightfully cool water, and enjoying the sunshine. But what does this mean for your perfume? We’ve outlined just exactly what happens to perfume in summer and what you can do about it. 

How Does Weather Affect Perfume?

Did you know that your perfume is affected by both the heat and the cold? Perfumes are affected in two ways:  wearability and how they are activated. 

Wearability

A huge impact on what happens to perfume in summer is the wearability of the perfume. In colder temperatures, you don’t sweat as much, which means that the perfume stays on you better. However, in hot weather, you’re more susceptible to sweating, which can make the duration of the scent decrease. Spending time in water can also decrease the strength or durability of your perfume’s scent. 

Activation

Fragrances are activated by the heat. If the temperature is colder, the scent may be more muted and not as intense. However, hot weather makes scents much more intense and can bring out notes in the perfume that you may have not otherwise noticed. 

What Perfumes Work Best in the Summer?

Because the summer heat intensifies the scent of your perfume so strongly, it’s important that you choose the perfect summer scents. Choosing a perfume that doesn’t have the right fragrance can be overwhelming. Consider choosing these types of fragrances for a summer day!

Fresh Fragrances

Light, fresh fragrances are a perfect way to maintain a delightful scent without using perfumes that are overpowering. These notes can include sea salt, linen, aquatic, or even aromatic scents. 

A great fresh perfume to wear during the summer months is Davidoff’s Cool Water. The fragrance captures the scent of the sea. The perfume’s notes are light and fresh, so they won’t become overpowering under the hot summer sun. 

Light Florals

While some floral scents may get too strong, light, subtle florals are a perfect choice for summer wear. Florals are a great way to maintain femininity and delicacy while still having a delightfully noticeable scent. These notes can include citrus or citrus flowers like the neroli blossom, rose, and lavender. 

Floral by Jimmy Choo is a perfect summer perfume. The perfume has light citrusy notes of tangerine, nectarine, and bergamot coupled with light floral undertones. It’s delicate, beautiful, and summery. 

Green Scents

The green, light scent of herbs and greenery in the summertime is a great fragrance choice. Herbs such as mint, basil, and lemon balm maintain a lovely balance between strong, earthy green and delicate tones. 

Polo Blue by Ralph Lauren is absolutely perfect for summer days. The fragrance has notes of cucumber, melon, and mandarin, combining all of the perfect light and fresh scents needed in the summertime.

Getting Started:
To your measure of vodka, you will first need to include base notes
Base notes are the rich base scents, which make profundity to perfume and help to hold and harden the center and best notes.

Having substantial particles that take the longest to vanish, base notes are the ones that wait for the longest on skin. Well-known base notes include sandalwood, rosewood, cedarwood, patchouli, jasmine, vanilla, vetiver, frankincense, myrrh, ambrette seed musk, and clove.
Next, you will need to include the middle notes
The middle notes give the fundamental body of the scent. They are somewhat mellower and help to ’round off’ the scent of the base notes. Prominent center notes include lavender, cardamom, rose, chamomile, juniper, rosemary, ylang, and pine.
At long last, you will need to include top notes
Top notes are the most grounded noticing vegan perfumes that are first seen when you see a scent, being the littlest atoms, which dissipate the fastest. They, therefore, decide the initial introduction to the nose. Top notes include mint, cinnamon, cajuput, verbena, and citrus scents, for example, mandarin, lime, lemon, bergamot, and grapefruit.
You can simply marginally change the proportion of notes by including additional base, center, or best notes in the event that you need to modify the scent.
Make certain to make a note of the blend of oils you are utilizing and what number of drops you have utilized of each. You won’t have any desire to forget your proportions when you hit on the ideal blend!

Tips to Make Your Perfume Last Longer

Here are 8 tips we like to follow to get the most out of our perfume , from the crack of dawn till the end of night!

1. Do not keep your fragrance in the bathroom. It is warm and damp, it’ll break down the perfume and, the quality of the perfume would not be the same. Store your fragrances in cool, dry places and away from light spots. (Store it in your closet or on your vanity)

2. Perfumes last longer on oily skin. Before your spray, your favorite perfume, rub some Vaseline on your pulse points and then spray your fragrance.

3. Perfect time to apply perfume is right after taking a shower, the moist skin will hold the aroma longer.

4. Don’t rub your wrists together when you are applying perfume. The very first note will evaporate faster and the fragrance won’t last long.

5. What are the best pulse points?

6. When you are sampling a perfume wait until it’s dry on your skin then smell it . The first scent is the top note, which disappears after a couple of minutes.

7. For quick touch-ups throughout the day get a MaxAroma easy refill Pocket Perfumes. Pump it up with your favorite perfume, put it in your purse, and enjoy your perfume anywhere. It’s much lighter than carrying the entire perfume bottle.

Should You Spray Your Hair with Perfume?

We all want to smell great. When you’re spraying on your favorite perfume, you may want to add a little spritz to your hair. But is it safe? Here’s what you need to know about putting perfume in your hair.

The Damaging Effects of Perfume

If you’ve ever been around a strong scent like a bonfire and haven’t washed your hair right away, you know how strongly your hair can hold onto a smell. This may make you think that your hair is the perfect place to add perfume for long-lasting fragrance. But think again!

Perfume can wreak some serious havoc on your locks. This is because it contains alcohol. Alcohol dries out your hair. If you continually spray perfumes that contain alcohol on your hair, the dryness and damage could actually become long-term.

A quick spritz now and then is unlikely to be a big problem. If you take good care of your hair in general, then a bit of perfume won’t make a noticeable difference. However, if you want to take good care of your hair, avoid using products that aren’t intended to be used on hair!

Perfume Alternatives That are Hair-Safe

Perhaps you still want more scent in your hair than your shampoo and conditioner can provide. If it’s been a few days since you washed your hair, you may also want to make your hair smell fresh again. 

When you’re reading through ingredient lists, be on the lookout for any artificial fragrances that could harm your hair. Essential oils are a natural, healthier alternative. The main thing you need to avoid is too much alcohol since that’s what really does damage to your hair. Interestingly enough, not all alcohols are created equal. Fatty alcohols derived from plants like cetyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol, and stearyl alcohol shouldn’t damage your luscious locks.

Hair mists are a great option because they smell great but they don’t have a high concentration of alcohol. Your hair will still effectively trap this scent and you’ll experience long-lasting fragrance. Mists often have the added benefit of protection from harmful UV rays. 

You might also look into a scented dry shampoo to refresh the look and smell of your hair. Finally, you could try a scented hair oil or serum. Just be careful not to over-apply these products as they can leave your hair looking extra greasy. Since these products are specially formulated with hair in mind, you can feel good about using them on your hair. 

Smell Your Best with Maxaroma 

While it may be tempting to spray your perfume everywhere including your hair, you’ll be much better off using a product that’s actually intended for your hair. Spray on a hefty dose of your favorite Maxaroma perfume but choose a different product for your hair such as the Delina hair perfume by Parfums De Marly. This is the best way to smell great without drying out your hair!
