The latest addition for Summer 2010 to the very gorgeous FLOWERBOMB by Viktor & Rolf perfume family is the FLOWERBOMB Eau de Parfum Rollerball ($22 for 0.33 fl.oz/10 ml). Exclusive to Sephora. I love this travel friendly version of FLOWERBOMB. Also, it is perfect if you are new to the perfume and not ready to buy the big bottle.
I must admit that at first I was a bit unsure if FLOWERBOMB perfume By Viktor & Rolf was the one for me, but after sometime it grew on me and I’m truly in love with it. After experimenting with many (and I mean very many) perfumes in my lifetime FLOWERBOMB By Viktor & Rolf is a total classic and on Marta Walsh’s best perfume list of all time (at least ‘of my time’ LOL).

New Perfume for Summer 2010: Loving the new EAU MEGA Viktor & Rolf MINI MEGA eau de parfum ($50 for 20 ml). Flowerbomb fans I suspect you might be ‘on fire’ to find out how EAU MEGA smells in comparison. Well, EAU MEGA is not as musky and it has a bit of a zesty, fresh, and fruity notes to it. But it’s not that pure floral and pure fresh scent which I’m not into it, it’s much more complex and rounded. For day time use perhaps. If I like a perfume, though, I wear it day and night, so as always feel free to make that decision yourself. All in all, EAU MEGA MINI MEGA is a very lovely and very wearable perfume. It ranks on my top list of best perfumes of all time. A big responsibility I know, but I just love it!

Nina Ricci Le Paradis de Nina ($55 for 1.7 fl oz) is just as sensual and desirable as its predecessor, Nina by Nina Ricci, this limited edition scent is a delightful fragrance which draws inspiration from the delicious aroma of French Madeleine cake, reminiscent of childhood happiness. Delicious and intoxicating, Le Paradis de Nina distils its magical essences. The fragrance is enriched with new ingredients, reminiscent of the flavor of little pleasures we believed were forgotten.

I’m excited to share with you my interview with Linda Pilkington of Ormonde Jayne Perfumery London. This is my second interview with Pilkington. My first interview with her was back in June 2009. With this one I feel I’m getting to know Pilkngton better.

In this interview Linda Pilkngton talks to Marta Walsh about her home in London. First memories of falling in love with fragrance. Scents she can’t stand (believe it or not). The creative process behind Tiare the new perfume addition to Ormonde Jayne Perfumery London, and future plans. P.S. I was just invited to Linda Pilkngton’s dream ultimate dinner party together with Emma Thomson, Goldie Hawn, and Barack Obama. I couldn’t be more chuffed, as the Brit say, and feel happy just like the cat who got the cream:)
Marta Walsh: Where do you call home?
Linda Pilkngton: Home is Primrose Hill in London, a wonderful place to live and it’s just 10 minutes from my studio to my left and 20 minutes to our shop in Old Bond St to the right. At the top of the hill, you can see the most impressive view of London including St Paul’s Cathedral, The London Zoo & The London Eye.
I just bought Jean Paul Gaultier Ma Dame Eau De Toilette in ULTA and giving it a go. So far it smells pretty good and sexy. Fragrance notes: acidic orange, musk, cedar, grenadine and velvet rose.
WATCH: Agyness Deyn in the Jean Paul Gaultier Ma Dame perfume ad. I love the message of the ad: the sense of freedom, to be individual and not a follower, and to not be afraid to express yourself. Marta is all about that!
