Initio – Emotions and Alchemy

Initio wants the imagination to take on a life of its own when you perceive their fragrance creations. So it’s less about remembering, but more about letting yourself be carried away mentally. What should not go unmentioned is that the perfumes of Initio can be combined with each other. This is not only something for old masters of perfume wearing, but also something for daredevils. You simply can’t get enough of Initio! The Latin word Initio means both: « The beginning », origin, a return to the essence of perfume, in its original magical and religious function. But also: « I initiate ». An initiation to experience perfumes as objects of power.     Absolute Aphrodisiac Some say it’s cotton candy, others think pastry. However, this voluptuous sweetness is not heavy or oppressive, but teasing and especially powdery. What’s nice about it is that Initio understands how to make vanilla smell authentic. In other words, it is just how we imagine vanilla as pure seduction and not flatly synthetic. Despite its presence, the scent is not intrusive or unpleasantly room-filling. Once you’ve let the vanilla lure you in, the scent lets you see through what it’s really after. It likes it animalic and captivates you with leather notes. In addition, the attractant castoreum mixes – an aphrodisiac that awakens desires in you.       High Frequency Fragrant jasmine, magnolia flowers, delicious almonds and seductive hendoins – High Frequency is definitely a special fragrance! It starts slowly with a sweet blend of almond, magnolia and jasmine, which is then slowly joined by a seductive explosion of musk and hendoins. These hendoins act very attractive to the human nose, which is why you can turn some heads with this fragrance.           Oud for Greatness Mystical, sacred, even almost magical: highly concentrated and with the finest natural oud oil, Oud for Greatness is a particularly prestigious perfume with an expressive signature. Blended with notes of lavender and saffron, the fragrance offers an exceptionally intense experience and seduces with its uniqueness. Oud – for happiness, harmony and healing, strengthens the mental and spiritual condition by creating balance, promoting inner peace and personal growth.         Find your perfume with our Perfume Finder! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at help@pafory.com.

Grasse – fragrance history and perfume art

Over 30 years ago, the capital of fragrances inspired author Patrick SĂŒĂŸkind to write a literary masterpiece about a cruel murderer who was only interested in one thing – the perfect scent. We at PAFORY don’t really have anything else in mind either, but are much more affable in our search for it. The town around which the fascinating events in the novel revolve is a small town away from Canne. We are talking about Grasse.     Grasse as a fragrance capital Anyone who has ever been near a tannery knows how unpleasant and biting the fumes of this work sting the nose. In the Middle Ages, today’s fragrance capital was best known for its excellent leather – but also notorious for the stench. To make the products more attractive to customers, i.e. less smelly, Galimard, a tanner, used the treasures of Provence. He dipped his gloves in baths of lavender, orange blossom, mimosa and all sorts of other fragrant plants. Today, master perfumers are successfully trained in the city. They are called „Nez“ (nose) and after 7 years they are able to recognize around 6000 fragrances. Although the raw materials, which in the 17th century were mainly grown directly around Grasse, are now also imported to the perfumers, but about 30 perfume factories in the city prove that Grasse will dethrone no one so quickly, not even Paris.   Grasse is worth a visit in any case. The city is teeming with perfumeries that blend into the maze of old and new buildings like little paradises. In the city, of course, there is the MusĂ©e internationale de la ParfĂŒmerie, where you can explore everything Grasse has to offer in terms of fragrance history and perfume art. But interesting facts can also be found elsewhere. Almost every factory offers tourist tours, but that’s not all. Those who finally want to call their own distinctive and indeed unique perfume can create one there with expert assistance. Perhaps so one or the other discovers that on him a „Nez“ has been lost.     Find your perfume with our Perfume Finder! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at help@pafory.com.

Blend Oud – a journey to the Orient

Blend Oud is a tribute to the ancient Arabian tradition of blending: the art of combining precious oils in search of the perfect fragrance. Both the name and the identity of the brand represent the knowledge of this ancient art, which dates back thousands of years. The brand is inspired by the traditional gestures of Arab master perfumers who mixed the most extraordinary raw materials with precision and patience, bringing to life a fascinating olfactory culture.       Khoul With Khoul from Blend Oud, the hearts of female oud lovers beat faster. Khoul is floral, fruity and spicy at the same time. Clearly perceptible is the fruity peach note which gives this oud fragrance a playful, sweet nuance. The oud in combination with the vanilla provides a pleasant warmth. Lemon, bergamot and green notes provide a sparkling prelude which gives this oud fragrance a surprising lightness.           Oud Zanzibar Fruity-fresh at the start, this oud fragrance by Blend Oud surprises its wearer with scents of melon and lemon. Initially much more restrained, the floral notes of jasmine and magnolia come more and more to the fore until finally the fragrance develops into a warm, earthy, sweet composition of sandalwood and patchouli. Just like the patchouli note, the oud very subtly accompanies the development of the fragrance without being intrusive or even resinous. The fragrance really manages to transport the atmosphere and the attitude to life of a tropical island.         Tupai Love A fragrance that already carries the passion and sensuality of a paradisiacal island in its name. A floral powdery lightness of jasmine, iris and rose follows a deep composition of vanilla, tonka bean, cedar and patchouli. The fragrance evokes a powerful and pristine place, surrounded by the sea of passion. The sun is slowly setting, decorating the horizon with purple and pink tones. When the last ray disappears, scents of flowers are in the air. An intense and sensual floral moment that never seems to fade. When you close your eyes, you feel what only imagination can capture in a fragrance: the warmth of the sea and the delicacy of the sand on your skin.     Santal Pondicherry Santal Pondicherry by Blend Oud is almost a spiritual fragrance, which captures the atmosphere and smells of a sacred house or consecrated place. This illusion is created by the interplay of incense, myrrh and precious woods. Nevertheless, the fragrance does not seem old-fashioned at all, but rather glamorous and noble. This is ensured by vanilla, amber and spices such as cardamom, which give the fragrance a warm depth.       Find your perfume with our Perfume Finder! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at help@pafory.com.

The most beautiful floral fragrances for spring

The pleasant warmth of the spring sun seductively settles on our cheeks. It is the season that awakens new life and revives our mood, but also our senses. Today we recommend you 4 very special perfumes that will accompany you with freshness and intensity and beautify the wonderful season. Fragrances for spirited, deep breathing and a bit of sun on your skin. Floral fragrances are quite in demand in spring, whereas heavier perfumes tend to soften. After all, we’re not just looking forward to blooming meadows now, but like to smell a little fresher and lighter again after the particularly strong winter scents.       Let it bloom The awakening of nature should definitely be celebrated! Why not with a new perfume (or four😉)? We’ve chosen fragrances from Ella K and Nishane, among others, that are guaranteed to bring spring fever and compliments when worn! Each of the perfumes contains precious floral accents, which make the fragrances each unique in their own way – for extra flower power. Floral fragrances have a very natural, sweet and feminine overall effect. They open your heart and tempt you to take a deep breath. Moreover, floral accords are considered balancing and create a certain lightness. They can be delicate, elegant, but also playful and yet powerful. And yet, floral fragrances are so different from each other – depending entirely on which composition they appear in. Here are our recommendations for a fragrant spring: Laboratorio Olfattivo – MyLO   Surrounded by fruity, floral and soft notes, MyLO impresses with a warm and sensual base that directly strikes and charms. A particularly long-lasting fragrance inspired mainly by the white lily. The sparkling and fruity notes of citrus and spicy pepper berries combine perfectly with the floral heart of white lily, iris, jasmine and rose. This fragrance accord finally leads to the velvety base of benzoin resin, vanilla, amber and musk, which rounds off the fragrance harmoniously and softly.   ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nishane – Hundred Silent Ways This fragrance is stimulating, inspiring and very pleasant to wear due to its floral-sweet base. It begins with fruity notes of tangerine and peach, which is joined by tuberose. The heart is a bouquet of jasmine, gardenia and iris. The combination of strong vanilla, sandalwood and vetiver ultimately give the perfume a very sensual and unique foundation, which is appropriately reinforced and emphasized by the floral notes contained.     ⠀  Ella K – MĂ©moire de Daisen In In memory of Daisen In – the most famous example of kare-san-sui, traditional Japanese rock gardens. The combination of peony, amber and nutmeg provides moments of contemplation and aesthetics. Maple wood, green notes, Rosa Alba as well as bergamot have been finely balanced to create a fragrance that will not soon be forgotten. The mineral character of gravel is underlined by ambrox and benzoin, while the gentle rose bushes fill the air with their feminine scents.     ⠀ Acqua Alpes – 2677 2677 begins the refreshing journey with lily of the valley and jasmine. Arriving at the purifying pine, we experience a woody fragrance that takes us not into the forest, but over the mountains. In Acqua Alpes 2677, salty notes of seaweed combine with accents of bergamot, anise and peach. In the heart of the perfume, aromas of lavender, rose and geranium unfold. The warm base is formed by sandalwood, patchouli, white musk and vanilla.     Find your perfume with our Perfume Finder! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at help@pafory.com.

Our Love – Orlov Paris

We have exciting fragrance news for you – there are now three new luxury fragrance brands to sniff at PAFORY. And we promise, they are really something! One of the new brands is ORLOV Paris, an absolutely unique and luxurious brand that we are 100% convinced of and are proud to finally introduce to you. This post is all about ORLOV and their splendor perfumes, which are now available with us. Are you already excited?       Thomas MĂ©aulle and Ruth Sery de Solokou It all started in 2009, when Thomas MĂ©aulle met a young woman with a very special name at a trendy and chic party in Paris: Ruth Sery de Solokou. A woman with style and class whom he absolutely had to approach. For Thomas, he says, she was the mysterious «black panther» because of her «feline» beauty. Apart from her, MĂ©aulle was passionate about precious stones and perfume, and at the time was working in finance. Ruth was already considered a diamond expert at the time; she had just graduated from HRD Antwerp. HRD Antwerp is still working today to develop an innovative new diamond database for faster jewelry appraisals.   The lost diamond In any case, Ruth was at least as fascinated by the world of fragrances as Thomas, and had recently moved to Paris. On the evening of the party, Thomas felt attracted to her – especially because of the fragrance she was wearing – so he ended up asking her about it. This developed into an hour-long conversation about the passion for gemstones and perfume that they both share. Ruth then decided to show Thomas her world: the stones she works with and the jewelry she designs. The joint creation of Orlov came about when Thomas finds a lost diamond under a perfume box, which for him was the main trigger for the brand idea.   FLAME OF GOLD Smoky, sweet and spicy: a dazzling vitality as a creation of the «golden flame». An oriental fragrance which interprets a luxurious and sensual combination of dark chocolate, tonka bean and leather. Inspired by an award-winning 29-carat yellow diamond, the perfume conjures warm, rose-gold rays cast by its myriad facets.       ORLOV The main nuance of this gemstone perfume lies in a fascinating interplay of the precious flowers of roses and jasmine amid delicious red fruits. The fragrance is considered a strengthening talisman and charisma booster, which is complemented by creamy-sweet orange blossoms and carried by a touch of musk.       DE YOUNG RED The most magnificent red diamond in the whole world – this is probably De Young Red by Orlov. Stunning red conjures maximum vitality – as well as the unique feel-good formula of citrus, rose and jasmine. In addition, amber, sandalwood and musk are included, which give the fragrance a certain energy.       SEA OF LIGHT An aromatic creamy perfume, almost like a flash of light on the skin, which is the perfect contrast between warm and cold. Sea of Light fuses the metallic freshness of citrus with the power of seductive spices, drawing inspiration from the diamond of the same name – the «Sea of Light», one of the world’s most brilliant diamonds at an astonishing 182 carats.       GOLDEN PRINCE Golden Prince alludes to the popular drink of New York’s Golden Boys and, accordingly, evokes the aroma of a freshly made gin and tonic with a bubbly combination of grapefruit, pink pepper and juniper berry. Fresh, spicy, woody: the «golden prince» – named after a fabulous brown diamond exhibited at the Paris World’s Fair and the American Museum of Natural History.       Find your perfume with our Perfume Finder! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at help@pafory.com.

Gravel – New York 1957

    Distinctive and charismatic The creator of the luxurious Gravel New York brand – Michael B. Knudsen – began to pursue his dream of creating his own perfume in the 1950s. At that time, he started his first own collection – although no one had any idea of the success that would await him in the history of perfume. Indeed, to this day, it is said that the entire fragrance industry in America has benefited from Knudsen, his pioneering spirit and visionary genius. He eventually dedicated his entire life to the development of the brand, putting all his charisma, connections and energy at the service of Gravel. All bottles are filled by hand and contain gravel from the Hudson River. The idea came to Knudsen after a walk along this river with the desire to stand out from the conventional perfume bottles. Since the first bottle was sold in 1957 in New York on 46th Street, Michael B. Knudsen remains unforgotten through each of his fragrances.       Knudsen’s extraordinary life Gravel fragrances are the essence of an eventful and long life. They are always inspired by Knudsen’s exciting life journey, which began in Scandinavia in 1911. Life first took him across the vast ocean to America (Across the Ocean), where as a young, handsome man he succumbed to the promise of the American Dream. This period was considered the golden era of Hollywood and Knudsen also fell for the charms of the film industry. He was part of several film productions and thus got to know the world of show business. Probably that’s where his extravagant lifestyle and penchant for beauty came from. Through these experiences, he wanted to transport a piece of all this into the new era of America – with a perfume that captured all his experiences, convictions and promises. Thus was born his very first fragrance: A Man’s Cologne – which is actually considered to be the first men’s perfume in the U.S., since until then it was mainly aftershaves that were common.     A MANÂŽS COLOGNE Balsamic, citrus and spicy: a distinctive high-quality fragrance that comes alive with hints of orange and tonka bean. A very sensual perfume that has a warm yet fresh orientation. A Man’s Cologne – the first men’s perfume in the USA and the first creation of GRAVEL perfumer Michael Knudsen.       46TH STREET This modern fragrance is woody-balsamic and characterized by beguiling as well as intense notes that interpret a true seduction through incense, amber and musk. The included forest berries and flowers of jasmine create a pleasant, young freshness, underlined by birch and precious woods.         ACROSS THE OCEAN Across the Ocean has fresh, light floral accents with impressive woody-spicy undertones. Rose, guaiac wood and musk take us on a journey on the luxurious overseas steamers that once sailed between the Old World, Europe and the USA. A fragrance that combines classic fragrances in a very unique way and thereby reinterprets them.           AMERICAN DREAM This perfume is dedicated to the famous and alluring American Dream, bringing a summery and at the same time elegant, sensual mood. Woody nuances give the fragrance a gentle structure, which is fused by jasmine, lavender and basil to create an interesting, luxurious composition. American Dream is reminiscent of a late summer stroll along the Hamptons beaches – just outside New York.       HUDSON RIVER NY This eau de parfum smells initially citrus-floral and unfolds its full aromas after a short time of wearing on the skin. A woody, spicy note develops, which is delicately rounded off by a gentle vanilla note. Hudson River by Gravel New York interprets the special concept of the brand par excellence – named after the river where Michael Knudsen got the idea for Gravel.         Find your perfume with our Perfume Finder! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at help@pafory.com.

The fragrance pyramid – how perfume is structured

Each perfume bears the unmistakable signature of its perfumer, who develops it in delicate fine work and coordinates the many different fragrance notes with empathy and tact. In the process, each fragrance presents its diverse aromas, which correspond to its individual fragrance pyramid. The fragrance pyramid describes three scent phases that reveal themselves one after the other during the unfolding of the fragrance: Head, Heart and Base. Only the interplay of all olfactory components and the interaction of the selected nuances give a perfume its fascinating and unique character. The structure of perfume is always the same – its effect, on the other hand, is always a unique experience. This applies equally to women’s, men’s and unisex fragrances.   The structure of perfume in detail Discovering a perfume and getting to know and love it in all its facets requires a lot of time, because the first impression made when applying the perfume to the skin does not even begin to reflect the full effect of the fragrance. The structure of perfume can be understood like a musical masterpiece. First comes the intro, the introduction, which gives an impression of what might come. Then comes the transition to the actual work, which embodies the melody and mood. Only at the end does the climax of the composition come to full fruition, giving the listener heart palpitations and goosebump moments. It is the same with the fragrance pyramid in noble perfumes. Here, the top note forms a spiky, invigorating prelude that leads into the heart note after only a short time. Here, the fragrance body is refined, built up and led towards its climax. In the base note, the perfume reveals its final direction and its unique, profound character – only at this point does a perfume tell its very own story. Fragrance concentration To develop a luxurious perfume, various high-quality perfume oils and fragrance essences are combined into a work of art, in addition to the basic ingredients of alcohol and distilled water. The fragrance concentration provides information about how high the proportion of fragrances is in the product. An eau de cologne is the lightest fragrance representative, containing 2-5% of fragrances. Eau de toilettes have between 5 and 9%, are very volatile and move quickly through the fragrance pyramid. An eau de parfum, on the other hand, carries a concentration of 8-14% of perfume oil, which is why it is more productive and economical to apply. Also, here the pyramid is experienced much more intense and the shelf life is happy to 8 hours. The fragrances presented at PAFORY are partly even Extrait de Parfums, which come to a concentration of up to 30%. Such compositions are a pleasure and should be applied with caution. The proportion of perfume oils can consist of over 250 different components. In order to harmonize the exquisite elements in such a way that they create a harmonious, soulful, dynamic, romantic or powerful image, not only a good nose is necessary, but also years of experience. It is the perfect harmony of the individual fragrance phases that characterizes a perfume. The fragrance pyramid provides information about the results that make a luxurious fragrance what it is.       The top note – the entrance into the fragrance experience After applying a fragrance, a first impression unfolds immediately. This opens the door to the actual fragrance experience in style. Light, invigorating and lacy fragrances are usually used for this prelude. The charisma of this fragrance phase remains only up to a maximum of 15 minutes and effective, then the fragrance molecules evaporate and it is seamlessly transitioned into the heart. Top notes are mostly citrus, green, aquatic and energetic perfume notes. Bergamot, orange, lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, fresh green and also fruits like pineapple, peach or mango, subtle spices, herbs, tea and also floral nuances like lavender or orange blossom are good examples of fragrance elements that form the prelude of a perfume. This paves the way for the beguiling fragrance composition. A women’s fragrance with a particularly fruity prelude is, for example, Hundred Silent Ways by Nishane. The heart note – this is where the body of the fragrance is formed Once the first impression has settled after a few minutes, the heart of a perfume comes to the surface. This note remains active between two and three hours (in the case of very intense perfumes also between five and six hours) and stimulates the senses with more intense, longer-lasting nuances. In the fragrance pyramid, the heart note determines the character of the perfume, its direction and intensity. Here are reflected mainly floral, fruity, herbaceous, but also synthetic fragrance elements. Blossoms of jasmine, lily of the valley, ylang-ylang, freesia, orchid, tuberose or even gardenia, rose nuances of May or peony, powdery sounds of violet, iris or mimosa are found in the heart as well as spicy scents of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom or a pinch of pepper. The men’s fragrance Laudano Nero by Tiziana Terenzi convinces with its woody-spicy orientation and a heart that continues into the base.   The base note – it rounds off the sophisticated fragrance concept The base note forms the broad and solid foundation of the fragrance pyramid. This phase of fragrance lasts up to 24 hours. The base gives a perfume its depth and warmth – an echo that symbolizes the signature of a fragrance. This is where fragrance notes come into their own, fixing molecules to both the skin and clothing (they are therefore also called fixators). In the base, woody, resinous, smoky, oriental and gourmand sounds unfold their aromas. Musk, amber, patchouli, vetiver, tonka beans, oakmoss, but also incense, cedar, sandalwood and oud components fire the imagination and stimulate the senses and have a sensual, romantic and seductive effect. But also caramel, vanilla, almond, chocolate, coffee, honey and cocoa can round off a fragrance base appetizingly. Animal, exotic or even sweet – the composition of the base wraps its wearer in a fascinating aura for many hours, gladly also with a portion of playfulness or provocation. A good example of a very warm, deep fragrance with a powerful base is Note VanillĂ©e by Maison Micallef. This luxury perfume impresses with its long-lasting, intense foundation.   Find your perfume with our Perfume Finder! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at help@pafory.com.

Parfums de Marly – french perfume craft

The splendor of the lifestyle of the ChĂąteau de Marly revives: a place of festivities and pleasure in the 18th century. Parfums de Marly: a refined perfumery that respects French expertise and creates contrasting fragrance images through the perfumers’ intuition – atmospheric and harmonious. Parfums de Marly has been one of our first brands and is still among the most popular. Each creation has a unique recognition value and a fragrance signature all its own. They symbolize special experiences with a fascinating combination of classic and modern. All bold compositions from a palette of noble contents that dare to go against the grain. True «signature» fragrances, then, that are very distinctive and express a contemporary lifestyle.       THE MARLY STORY «I wanted to build a Haute-Perfumery Maison where tradition matches the present.» The brand was founded in 2009 by Julien Sprecher, who discovered his love for perfume through his father. He was born near the castle of Marly and the gardens of Versailles and has been very positively influenced by its history, with which he grew up. The brand interprets the 18th century and its peak of French elegance: the reign of perfume. A very luxurious period that is reflected in the fragrances, as well as in the bottles and the brand identity itself.   The pleasure palace of Marly In the royal gardens of Versailles at the time, there were over ninety thousand flowers and plants. They all served the «perfumed court» of the absolutist king, where even the fountains carried perfumed water. Furthermore, the so-called pleasure palace of Marly was famous for the king’s horse breeding. The Tunisian king gave him eight Arabians, which had roots of magnificent European horses. They were the model for the famous sculptures on the Champs Elysee. Overall, Parfum de Marly revives in the bottles what was celebrated during this particular era. The elegance, the excess of beauty, the numerous celebrations and the exclusivity of the breeding horses that Louis the 15th loved so much. In the end, some creations were even named after the horses.     The top perfumes de Marly   LAYTON Sweet, spicy and sensual. The tangy mandarin unites in Layton with noble woods and strong spices, which are enlivened by a touch of jasmine. Parfums de Marly combines here vanilla and light herbs, which carry the addictive character and radiate a warm and at the same time fresh aura.       DELINA This powdery floral fragrance consists of the energetic rose, warm vanilla and bergamot. In addition, there is the vibrancy of fresh exotic fruits, which gives Delina a certain youthfulness. The combination of lychee and rhubarb interprets a flowery sweetness, which perfectly combines with the white flowers contained.     PEGASUS EXCLUSIF Pegasus Exclusif is a fine harmony of bergamot, pink pepper, cardamom and heliotrope. It also develops a very masculine, woody strength, accented by an elegant vanilla note. In addition, there are fragrance notes of lavender and bitter almond, which act like a heightened strength and give a very unique temperament.       ORIANA This perfume is airy-sweet and reminiscent of a summer fruity elixir. It embodies pleasure and lightness in a tangy, gourmand structure that is highlighted by bergamot, berries and orange. The twist in Oriana is definitely the sugary marshmallow accent, but it blends very pleasantly with the purity of the fruit.         Find your fragrance with our Perfume Finder! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at help@pafory.com.

The perfect fragrances for winter

Every fragrance has its own season! Right? After all, there are perfumes that give us a very special feeling – a warm, cozy one. One likes to reminisce with certain scents, yes – about the little things in life. Of the fluffy, freshly washed cuddly sweater, of the end of the day in front of the fireplace – or of the scent that comes to you as you stroll through the Christmas market and pass your favorite punch and almond stand. Fragrances give us all these associations, because they stimulate our senses and let us daydream – they inspire us.     Cold days – warm scents Characteristic of warm fragrances are often animalic scents in chypre and oriental type perfumes. Chypre fragrances are usually characterized by a mixture of citrus notes, labdanum and oakmoss. Oriental fragrances, on the other hand, consist of spices, cinnamon, incense and/or vanilla. The aforementioned fragrance notes are known to be associated with a kind of pleasure and coziness, which the term „warm“ tries to explain. It is meant to illustrate that positive inspiration is associated with the scent – a pleasantly cozy journey of thought. We remember moments when we feel comfortable.   Molinard – Ambre An unforgettable journey to the magical lands of the East! Ambre is designed to keep the secret of seduction and reveals the sophistication of a noble and exclusive affair. This eau de parfum offers elegance in a shimmering tone, for a contemporary olfactory interpretation of the Molinard myth.     Nishane – Fan your Flames Fan your Flames evokes a nice, quiet night in the company of loved ones, smoking a pleasantly intense shisha and enjoying life. It is a smoky, woody-spicy fragrance inspired by one of the most important Persian poets – Rumi, who considers love as the main force of the universe. The perfume – according to Rumi – is meant to make the inner fire in one burn: „Set your life on fire and seek those who fan your flames.“     ⠀ Giardino Benessere – Bianco Laos The fragrance is inspired by the hippie music and fashion of the 70s. A perfume dedicated to the lightness of that time, to awaken memories deeply hidden in us. But at the same time, Bianco Laos carries the character of a very metropolitan and contemporary world – created to become a symbol as a tribute to all those years of peace and love. Bianco Laos makes a real statement – with decisive, provocative and narcotic scents that make up the unique character of the fragrance. Olfactive Studio – Chypre Shot Chypre Shot evokes moments in infinite space, surrounded by nature, yet alone. A refreshing feeling of the wind, moisture that is in the air, yet always warm-scented advancing. A smoky spiciness together with the power of nature forms this impressive fragrance experience that convinces with an imposing soul.       ParfĂŒmerie ParticuliĂšre – Madeleine A ravishingly refined sweetness and warm, rich yellow rays of sunshine that warm and beguile you. Madeleine convinces in an elegant, sweet as well as warm way and captivates every nose. The fragrance is mysterious, unique and powerful.     Find your perfume with our Perfume Finder! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at help@pafory.com.

How to find your perfect scent

Are you looking for a fragrance for the office? Or rather a signature fragrance for the evening? Floral, woody or sweet? Light or heavy? Finding the right scent can be quite exhausting, which is why we would like to give you some tips. Not that easy to find the right perfume Testing different fragrances in a perfumery within a few minutes is almost impossible, since all facets of a perfume can never be captured due to the many scent impressions. Those who test fragrances here can only determine the first prelude. Already with testing a second perfume, the scent molecules are mixed and distort the respective message of the perfumes. If you order on the Internet, it makes sense to read in beforehand so that you get an impression of the fragrance and can rule out and favor scents based on scent notes or customer reviews. For this purpose, we have written detailed descriptions of each of our perfumes, explaining fragrance notes, intensity and special features, which can be filtered out during the search. By the way, depending on the season, fragrances are often lighter or heavier. In summer, many prefer rather light or fresh-floral fragrances. In contrast, some like to wear heavy, spicy scents in the winter. It’s helpful to know which scents you generally like to narrow down your search.     Testing perfumes takes a lot of time In order to actively experience each fragrance phase, it is best to test a new fragrance over the course of an entire day, as it takes time to fully develop. This works best in a quiet, relaxed atmosphere. After all, a first-class wine is not drunk within seconds and then evaluated. A good perfume wants to be enjoyed. It wants to develop in peace and quiet and slowly rise to its peak form. Be sure to try perfume on your skin. Fragrances falsify on test strips, as they develop differently depending on skin type – after all, everyone has their own body chemistry. Warm areas of the body such as the neck or wrists are best suited for application. A little tip: Apply a neutral oil or cream to the areas you are perfuming. On this basis, perfumes are even more stable and change more slowly between the different notes. In addition to the body temperature, the fragrance pyramid, i.e. the top, heart and base notes, also has an influence on the development of the perfume. These build on each other and only together form the complete fragrance experience. But how can it be determined whether the fragrance even meets personal desires and expectations? Buying a luxury perfume is comparable to buying a piece of fine jewelry. Everything must fit, the fragrance must convince – after all, the senses want to be intoxicated.         The solution: an exclusive fragrance sample PAFORY offers perfume samples of over 500 noble and high-quality perfumes of renowned luxury niche brands. This way, the perfume can be applied at home at leisure and their unfolding can be witnessed. Hour by hour it becomes clear whether the fragrance suits one’s own personality and achieves the effect that is desired. Only in this way is it possible not just to find a fragrance good, but to fall in love with it. You get exceptional fragrances that are not often available in stores, because they stand out for their quality and special origin. Many of them come from noble perfume houses or exclusive family manufactories, where the passion for perfume comes first. As a member, you will receive 8ml of your luxury perfume each month in convenient vials. This will last you at least a month with around 120 sprays. In order not to lose the overview, there is our fragrance calendar, which you can set up individually and personally. This way, you simply choose a new fragrance for each month and plan everything in advance. The fragrances themselves you wear as a statement in our stylish case, which quickly finds a permanent place in your pocket and additionally protects your case. Last but not least, we source all fragrances only from authorized retailers or directly from the brands – a principle we take very seriously. Shipping is free worldwide and you can cancel or pause your membership at any time. Find your new favorite scent with the Perfume Finder With our Perfume Finder, you can make a preliminary selection to narrow down the perfumes that come into question. Lovely and seductive or rather powerful and confident? The Perfume Finder helps determine the perfect fragrance for every day, that special occasion or for the next date. Personal preferences narrow down the palette – taking the agony of choice away. The differentiated suggestions refer exclusively to the specified attributes that the perfume should have. Each detailed fragrance description shows which focal points the respective perfume has to offer. The right storage To ultimately enjoy your luxury perfume for a long time, you should definitely store it in a cool, dark and dry place. If you don’t want to hide your fragrances in the closet, you should choose a shelf where the sun doesn’t shine directly on it. To keep sunlight out as best as possible, the outer packaging of the perfume or our case is suitable. You should also avoid temperature fluctuations, because most fragrances do not tolerate these differences and their intensity decreases in the long run. The ideal room for storage is the bedroom. Many put their perfume in the bathroom for practical reasons. But here it is warm, humid, and temperatures fluctuate – in other words, everything that can harm perfume. In the bedroom, even in winter, there is usually little heating, so the temperatures hardly change. Sunlight is also less in this room, because people often keep it rather dark.     Find your perfume with our Perfume Finder! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at help@pafory.com.

Fragrance of the Month August for Him – Still life in Rio by Olfactive Studio

The perfumers of Olfactive Studio are inspired by unique photographsin their creations. As in the case of still life in Rio. In his photograph, the Brazilian photographer Flavio Veloso, author of the image, captured the beauty of Rio in a unique moment. At dawn, He went to Mount Corcovado, where the famous figure of Christ stands. There the sky was illuminated by a golden ray wreath. A moment full of power and grandness. The still quiet city of Rio awakens and a new exciting day begins. This moment between silence and vibrancy inspired the perfumers to the fragrance Still life in Rio. Now you are certainly curious how Still life in Rio by Olfactive Studio Smells. Me too, that’s why I apply the fragrance now
. First of all, I perceive the citrus yitric note, but it does not have the sparkling freshness that citrus fragrance compositions usually have. No, the fragrance has a pleasant warmth. This is new to me. Gradually, spicy-green scents are added, which make the fragrance appear softer and softer, but again something happens here. The spicy note is by no means tart, but fresh. After some time the scent seems slightly creamy to me, could come from the coconut water. At the end, a bubbly-heavy note comes out again, is that perhaps the rum? The scent reminds me of the moment when I drink my first coffee on the balcony at the weekend. Everything is quiet. Then I am gripped by the urge to act and the lust for life. I want to get up and experience something. A moment of good humor. I hope I was able to inspire you for the fragrance Still life in Rio, with me it is already in the fragrance calendar. With you too? No YUNIQU perfume subscription? No problem at all. Sign up and enjoy your very first monthly fragrance. Until next time Your Alex

Popular perfumes & our alternatives

Today we present you some fragrances that are very similar to prominent fragrance creations. However, this is not about presenting cheap dupes or fragrance twins! We show you luxurious fragrances that smell similar to well-known perfumes, but are super special and unique in comparison! So you can orient yourself, which fragrances you might like and get alternatives that definitely not everyone has!       Parfums, die riechen wie
   Chanel – N°5 N°5 is a classic floral powdery fragrance. If you like that kind of thing, you definitely have to try the perfume By Night White by Profumi Del Forte. This fragrance is also very classic and smells floral and powdery. The heart is characterized by floral, southern seduction. Orange blossom, jasmine, violet, Turkish rose and orchid form an opulent floral bouquet. The base could not be softer – soft tonka bean, benzoin resin, heliotrope, vanilla and sandalwood.         Dolce & Gabanna – The One For Her The One For Her is also a floral fragrance, but it goes in the sweet and fruity scent direction. Our alternative to The One For Her is Safanad by Parfums de Marly. A very elegant and feminine fragrance. At first, the fragrance shows its lovely and fruity side, but a short time later, the sweet notes unite with delicate orange blossom, proud iris and softly scented ylang-ylang. Finally, the fine vanilla mixes in.       Prada – Candy Anyone who has smelled Candy knows that the perfume really smells like Candy. Delox by Tiziana Terenzi is also a real sugar explosion, but unlike Candy, a pleasantly light floral note is added here. The hypnotic power of white hyacinth fades together with regal iris. The scent is embraced by sweet myrrh and roasted coffee. Noble amber and cypress notes as well as mild honey nuances form the base. This combination is rounded off by a noble accent of Lebanese cedar wood. A fragrance of unclouded lightheartedness and at the same time powerful, intoxicating notes.   Alien – Thierry Mugler The perfume Alien by Thierry Mugler goes in the oriental and sweet fragrance direction. Especially the interplay of amber, woody and sweet notes make the perfume a very sensual fragrance. Iconic Amber Oud by Welton is also very seductive. A remarkable incarnation of the Orient of days gone by with a touch of modernity – simply magical! The perfume is downright addictive. A delightful combination of black musk, amber and sandalwood in interplay with sweet honey notes.       Find your perfume with our Perfume Finder! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at help@pafory.com.

The most beautiful vanilla scents

Perfumes with vanilla have a very special effect: they have an aphrodisiric effect, make you happy and want more. They awaken our fondest childhood memories, for example, of baking at Christmas time. You know, when you nibbled the dough straight from the bowl because it was already so delicious even raw. The big advantage: vanilla scents don’t make you fat! In summer, however, you can wear scents with vanilla just as well. They take us to the most beautiful beaches in the world and remind us of delicious cream cocktails with vanilla syrup and honeydew melon. As a gentle companion, vanilla lends a certain charm to the most diverse fragrance compositions. People often use its aroma in the base note to keep the sweet, delicious scent going for hours. I can’t deny it: Fragrances with vanilla fascinate me again and again and have never disappointed me! My following favorites could hardly be more different – there you see how diverse and combinable this ingredient in perfume is.       Vanille Patchouli – Molinard Vanilla Patchouli is an exquisite paradox of provocation and delicacy. These two fragrances merge irresistibly into a spectacular, magnetic attraction. Spicy vanilla kisses dark confident patchouli just before midnight in the deepest forest. Warm, woody and balsamic. Like a magic wand, this boldness of Molinard fascinates us: caramel vanilla sweetness, cuddly and comforting. A cozy warming feel-good fragrance with a special touch.       402 – Bon Parfumeur A gourmand fragrance with a unique vanilla note. 402 opens with soft white flowers and almond notes. The heliotrope offers a milky and sugary facet. The bottom note is slightly spicy and warmed by notes of sandalwood and benzoin. A delicious dessert. A caressing, velvety vanilla. Almond blossom and heliotrope combine to enrich this bourbon vanilla with its powdery facets. A shift to woody and musky facets is in the air. Soft and milky sandalwood gives this fragrance warmth, velvety and sweet with a stunning toffee note.       Note VanillĂ©e – Maison Micallef This eau de parfum presents itself in an irresistible, contemporary version and combines bourbon vanilla with woody as well as amber chords softened by citrus. This devilishly sensual perfume beguiles the senses with bourbon vanilla in its full glory! Note Vanillee breaks with any notion of reason and wisdom, drawing the richness of its amber-gourmand combination from the boldness of opulence. Eau de Parfum evokes the sun that gently warms our skin.       Dark Vanilla – Urban Scents Dark Vanilla is an eau de parfum of the brand Urban Scents and focuses on the seductive and deeply sensual base of vanilla and its well-known sweet and lovely notes. Combined with the balsamic, woody note of rooibos and soft accents of red tea and honey, DARK VANILLA is a unique fragrance creation. Especially because rooibos has hardly ever been used in classic fine perfumery. The fragrance is completed by a light spiciness of pink pepper and the powdery notes of heliotrope and tonka bean.     Find your fragrance with our Perfume Finder!

What are molecular fragrances and what makes them special?

Molecular fragrances consist either exclusively of synthetic molecular structures or of a combination of synthetic and natural fragrances. They often contain Iso E super, ambroxan or cashmeran, which are synthetically produced in the laboratory. In the bottle itself, they are odorless – only on the skin do their individual effects unfold in relation to one’s own body odor. Molecular perfumes take the art of perfumers to a new level, focusing on minimalism and the character of the wearer. What is special about the fragrances is that they emphasize one’s own body odor and have a clean, clear scent character. In addition, they have a pheromonal (arousing) effect, which is particularly attractive to the other person. On the skin, they often last longer than normal fragrances. Well-known brands for molecular fragrances are, for example, Escentric Molecules from Berlin and Aether Parfums from Paris, both of which are available at PAFORY. This post is about Aether – what makes the brand tick and which fragrances we recommend.     The Supraem Collection by Aether The French brand Aether Parfums was founded in Paris in 2016 and since then has stood for conceptual fragrances made from the finest synthetic molecules. A real insider’s tip for modern molecule perfumes, some of which have been created in collaboration with famous perfumers such as Nicolas Chabot, Amelie Bourgeois, Anne-Sophie Behaghel, Rodrigo Flores-Roux and Beverley Bayne, for example. Released in 2018, Aether’s Supraem collection consists of woody unisex fragrances – including Hypaer, Supaer, Ultrae and Xtraem. They range from a sun-dried, intense woody character as in Ultrae to a subtle and floral woody note as in Xtraem. Although it is not easy to put the fragrance character of molecular fragrances into words, and it is best experienced on your skin yourself, we dare to try:     Ultrae The basis of Ultrae are powerful aldehydic molecules. These give the molecular fragrance the intense character of dry heat – almost like hot iron or stones in a sauna. The fragrance has a glowing effect and also has synthetic notes that pleasantly combine with its fresh, metallic essence.     Hypaer A light and fresh fragrance that contains precious cashmere – obtained from the synthetic fragrance Cashmeran. This gives the perfume a very soft, fresh and sensual note – underlined by a warm musk portion and light, pure woods.         Xtraem Light, floral notes meet subtle chords of musk and wood in Xtraem. A fragrance that combines opposites in itself, and therefore shines so seductively. The contained fruits also give the whole a freshness kick, which harmonizes very well with the purity of the molecules.     Supaer Strong, woody notes of the fragrance molecule Akigalawood meet refreshing, clean nuances and blend together. The result: a mysterious and attractive fragrance that is simply unique with hints of amber and a metallic, sensual emphasis.         Find your fragrance with our Perfume Finder!

NEW IN THE RANGE

Umberto Nobile never wanted to be oppressed by the environment, but instead always enjoyed his life to the fullest. That is why, in 1942, in the midst of the raging war, he made the decision to start his own business – Nobile in 1942. Umberto loved the beauty of his Rome and had a strong passion for noble and rare essences. In the meantime, the company is run by his nephew, who shares this passion. The essences that make the perfumes so unique are obtained directly on site, because at Nobile 1942 it is important that everything comes directly from a single source and that no long production chains are created that reduce the quality of the perfumes. The Terenzis are actually all perfumers and also Tiziana Terenzi is not unknown. The company is already in its third generation and every perfumer in this family has its own leadership. Tiziana loves luxury and valuable details, which is why her bottles will be so opulent and exquisite. In addition, their fragrance creations like to capture the moment when you wish he could stay longer with you. The Gritti family is one of the classics from Venice who have been doing a great job in the fragrance industry since the 16th century. Situated on the Silk Road, its history is linked to traders from all over the world. They were always one of the first to come up with extraordinary raw materials and were thus able to be inspired by the inexhaustible breadth and diversity of our world. But also the homeland is not neglected and so one quickly finds oneanother at the fascinating Venetian festivals. near Histoire de Parfums biographies are filtered in fine and elegant processes and bottled in standard bottles. All you need to read is your nose. But it’s not just about people, it’s also about books, music, so are operas. The world is full of stories worth reading. In literature it is said that nothing has not been written before and thus everything written can only be a copy. This is perhaps a reflection. Because no one has written with their noseyet.

Ancient Egypt and fragrance traditions

If you go in search of traces, you will find that perfume originates from religious rituals. By slowly burning herbs or woods, fragrant smoke was created. Now some of you may think directly of a visit to a cathedral and it your noses already plays around the incense. But the Christians were not the first to use incense to fog their sacred spaces. The first mentions of fragrance are found in ancient Egypt. In the times of the pyramids, resins, flowers and anything that produced a pleasant scent were burned in honor of the deities. This tradition spread through the trade routes to the Romans. Of course, the precious substances were reserved for the gods, but there was one who discovered the pleasure of it for themselves early – Cleopatra.     Many myths are entwined around Cleopatra. One legend says she was beautiful, perhaps the most beautiful woman the earth has ever seen. Then again it is speculated that it was not her appearance that brought her opponents to their knees, but her incomparable love skills. But you’ve certainly heard all this before. Certainly also about the fact that she bathed her body in gallons of precious milk. But milk alone did not put her in the top ten of divine seductresses. It was also the precious perfumed ointments she used to groom herself. And that was the birth of perfume as a cosmetic product
 well
 maybe not exclusively. But the idea that this impressive woman contributed her part to the perfume culture is a very nice one.   For some time now, scholars have been trying to revive the scent of Cleopatra. Due to multiple mentions in various traditions, it is now believed to be Afarsenom. It seems that Israeli researchers have actually succeeded, but there can be no talk of a revival, because the result was apparently very disappointing. Is the once legendary scent simply no longer attractive to today’s noses, or should researchers reassure themselves that they just don’t have trained noses and leave the field to the professionals? Perhaps we will learn more about this someday. I remain curious and hope you do too.   Find your perfume with our Perfume Finder! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at help@pafory.com.
