Christian AudigierThings never turn out the way I plan them to, and today a new perfume just happened to follow me home. New perfume? Why on Earth.

I passed by our local perfumery on my way to the grocery store, and this gorgeous bottle was just sitting there, seemingly planned by one of the perfume vixens working at the store. I had briefly heard about it, so I decided to have a little sniff since I was already standing there. That.. was my first mistake. Its scent was kinda fruity, quite nice and just up my alley with notes of tangerine, blackberry, magnolia, woods, coconut, orchid, sandalwood, amber, pomegranate. I then decided to smell the one for men with notes of blackberry, leather, Asian pear, pomelo, orriswood, oakmoss, rum, cinnamon, saffron, vetiver - and that.. was my second mistake. Oh my, I almost drooled on myself.. I kid you not! Sometimes it's just sad to be a girl and not being able to wear those intoxicating fragrances they make for men. Luckily Øyvind really liked it as well, so we left the store with each our bottle of liquid royalty.

Which perfume?

According to Malin, and she's the uncrowned queen of perfumes, it's only available in one Norwegian store online namely Chastum (please note that I have no experience with this webshop myself). We got ours at Parfymelle for 495,- NOK per bottle. In addition to loving both scents, I absolutely adore these bottles both in design and color - and it is said that: "each bottle is adorned with crowns to represent the way Christian and the Mrs. address each other as My King and My Queen and true to form, these rich scents are fit for royalty".

Quite romantic, no? Smile

  1. Those bottles look so quirky yet classy at the same time. I’m sure they smell good. It’s kind of sweet how you and Øyvind have matching his and hers perfume. Very cute!

  2. Fieran:
    Thank you, dear! Just say it, it’s a little dorky I know, but they both smelled delicious. Wink I’m prone to headaches from a lot of heavy scented perfumes, so I have to be a little careful – this one was fresh, fruity and yummy. And the one for men? Jeez, I would have worn it if people wouldn’t be given me funny looks! Wink

  3. Jeg liker godt designet på de flaskene Grin Kanskje jeg stikker innom Parfymelle neste gang jeg er i nærheten og tar en lukt Smile

  4. Linda:
    Jeg tror fargene var det som bergtok meg først, men ja – de er spesielle, dekorative og ikke minst kule! Gjør det, og ikke glem å sjekke ut den for menn. Wink

  5. A perfumery between you and the grocery store? Sounds very perilous indeed Grin

  6. I once read that some actress makes her signature scent by mixing men’s cologne with lady’s perfume. Its ok to use men’s scents Wink I won’t tell anyone.. Wink

  7. Mmmmm… Den dame parfymen er så godSmile
    Skal på senteret å sjå etter manneduften i dag Grin

    hahaha “she’s the uncrowned queen of perfumes” den liker eg;D

  8. Pinch:
    Not as bad as it sounds actually, I tend to stay away because the massive amount of scents makes my head wanna implode.

    Awesome! Grin Maybe I’ll have to try that then. Haha!

    Ja, du må sjekke den for menn – jeg ble helt mo i knærne, jeg. Grin Og du er jo den ukronede parfymedronninga. Ingen over, ingen ved siden. Wink Takk for linken!
