Special thanks to Carrie Meredith of the legendary Beauty and Fragrance Blog EYELINER ON A CAT for her splendid review of two Scents from our Les Bohemes Collection; DAPPER ( of which she says,"This perfume is a no-brainer for every season, men or women-- it is a true delight.") And HEAVY SUGAR ("Heavy Sugar is linear, full of syrupy, powdered kisses, and will leave a scent trail behind you that will make people weak in the knees.")
Please visit EYELINER ON A CAT to read the entire review!
Although this Collection is still pending release, I'm happy to announce that we are selling Limited Editions of our Pre-Release Batch at OPUS OILS. We also have some Special offers on Limited Edition Les Bohemes Scent Coffrets at our Opus Oils Etsy Shop.
Our Les Bohemes Collection (The Bohemians) is a throwback to the age of Speakeasies & wild abandon… Are you looking for an escape from the next Great Depression? Let us take you into the backroom on a journey through time where the secret password is “Jitterbug” & the good times flow like Bathtub Gin… Rich, Ultra Decadent & Shamelessly heavy on the Natural Essences – just like the scents that were constructed during Perfume’s Golden Age of the 1920’s.

So excited to announce that our "GIGGLE WATER" Perfume made CaFleureBon's Favorite Summer Scents List !♥♥ (Two years in a row!!!)
Originally, I designed this scent for myself to wear to a special Summer night in the park performance of A Midsummer Nights Dream, that was being performed at the Barnsdale Art Park just up the street from The Jitterbug Perfume Parlour. It was super hot (LA Indian Summer style,)and I wanted a scent that would keep me feeling cool and refreshed, plus add something synesthetic to the texture of the play. I was thinking, “What would Titania waft?”... The scent of Orange Blossoms came to mind, as this is fragrance that has always transported me. I find it to be very magical and enchanting and it felt the perfect choice for a blast off point to my idea of "Wafting Titania." Plus it was a key note in my 'Solifleur Scent Palette Project,' that had yet to be tackled!
My "Orange Blossoms in Summertime," that temporarily became "Wafting Titania," has finally landed in our much anticipated Les Bohemes Collection with the official name GIGGLE WATER...
I was so touched when I heard from Michelyn (CaFleureBon's Editor In Chief) that she wore GIGGLE WATER on her "Honeymoon Night," when she recently tied the knot with her Fragrantly inclined Beau! I can’t think of a higher compliment than to be a woman’s choice in scent for such a very special night!
SOTD: Summer Scent GIGGLE WATER of course! Key Notes ~ Absolutes of Tunisian Orange,Flower Absolute, Egyptian Orange Flower Absolute, Orange Flower H20 Absolute,& Bitter Orange Flower Absolute, Honey, Wild Orange, Mandarin, Peach, Gardenia, Beach Found Ambergris, White Musk & Sandalwood

TASTY TID-BIT: The word "BURLESQUE," first appears in a title in Francesco Berni's Opere burlesche of the early 16th century.'Burlesque' as a literary term became widespread in 17th century Italy and France, and subsequently England, where it referred to a grotesque imitation of the dignified or pathetic. Shakespeare's Pyramus and Thisbe scene in Midsummer Night's Dream was an early examples of such imitation.
