Have you ever dabbled into mixing one or two essences or even ready-made perfumes to create a third one that would be just so? This "layering" exercise sometimes ends up pretty and more often it ends up disastrously. It takes a bit of experience and training to be able to combine successfully, you see.
So the news of a specifically produced "palettes" (seriously, they look cute like eyeshadow palettes off MAC or something) comprising solid scents for mixing and matching was quite interesting to me. After all, I do get emails and questions about mixing one's own scent all the time.
Exclusive to CameoNouveau.com, Mélange Perfumes ($28 each) are a blend of fragrance notes artfully blended in a base of natural Beeswax and Jojoba, which produces a perfect solid perfume that glides onto the skin. Each Mélange Solid Perfume Blending Palette contains four solid perfumes with blending instructions. All of the fragrances are designed to be worn alone, or blended with others in the palette to create a unique custom blend all your own (And I venture to add that one might even be tempted to combine freely from across the palettes, let's live dangerously!).
And of course the Mélange solid perfumes fit into any handbag for touch-ups throughout the day or for taking along on your weekend escape. They also sound like a great little gift for your girlfriends.
The declinatations are as follows:
Green Notes: Green Tea & Honeysuckle; Cut Grass & Paperwhite; Cucumber, Sakura Blossom & White Tea, Mimosa, Mint & Citron.
Floral Notes: Jasmine & Neroli; Casablanca Lily & Tuberose; Japanese Tea Rose & Sakura; Frangipani & Gardenia.
Citrus Notes: Grapefruit & Pomegranate; Bergamot & Jasmine; Mandarin & Tea; Citron & Casis.
Fruit Notes: Currant & Grapefruit; Plum & Tobacco Leaf; Sakura Blossom & Ginger; Pear & Fig.
Amber Notes: Amber, plum & Vanilla Orchid; Santal, Lily & Tonka; Tobacco Leaf, Patchouli & Musk
