Rahele by Neela Vermeire Creations 2016 + GIVEAWAY

Hi there Posse Peeps, As you know Neela Vermeire is one of my buddies. I love her work, we speak fairly regularly on Skype and she sends me advance samples. Well, I got an extra Rahele to give away here on the Perfume Posse today. WOO HOO!

Rahele by Bertrand Duchaufour for Neela Vermeire Creations 2016

rahele-neela-vermeire-creations-fragrantica RaheleFragrantica

Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Osmanthus, woody notes, spices, floral notes, herbal notes, leather, oakmoss

Osmanthus surrounded and lifted by its backing players. Smooth, sophisticated and extremely elegant. Rahele is not a big marching band style of fragrance but a calm, tranquil, elegant and fresh adventure in scent. It has a similar aloof yet cozy feeling that some of the Mona di Orio fragrances have, compelling yet restrained. For anyone who has complained that Neela Vermeire’s Creations are more fragrance than they can handle then this could be your entry point. Same meticulous attention to detail, same smooth transitions and same luxury feel but done in a way that is soothing as well as being commanding. Where most of the NVC range are blockbuster, shining superstars here we have the black velvet sky that holds those stars tenderly and peacefully.

My mate Scott pronounced it his favourite in the Neela range, big call. I know he’ll be first in line to buy it, well right behind me anyway.

Rahele is not available commercially yet but will be on the Neela Vermeire Creations page soon.
Here’s a chance for you to try it first……

Go to Neela Vermeire Creations<<<JUMP and tell me an NVC fragrance and ONE of its notes. NO DOUBLE UPS!
I’ll edit extra notes you put in out so there are enough for everyone.

Good luck everyone. I’ll announce the winner next week.

Vanilla in the deep base of Trayee. I love that it doesn't candy sweet.

Zazie November 20, 2016

Mohur is my favorite ROSE fragrance. (And I usually don't even like the rose genre. I think the almond milk does the trick. I love my edp so much I am thinking to give myself the extrait for Xmas. An investment piece, but hey, the cardamom and leathery feel over the smooth milky notes make Mohur the most special rose ever.) I love osmanthus, so would be super excited to try a sample of Rahele.

SunnyDay November 19, 2016

I love the cinnamon in Pichola.

Ann November 19, 2016

Wonderful (and generous) post, dear! Very nice of you. I love all the NV scents but this one sounds super-nice. And I love your "black velvet sky" description -- lovely! Of course, DNEM.

The saffron in Mohur is delicious, and I adore the cinnamon in Pichola that sharpens up all the florals and gives them a bit of bite. The Rahele sounds magnificent -- leather and osmanthus and oakmoss? I die!

Koyel November 17, 2016

MOHUR. BOOM. (One of my absolute favorite scents ever.) On another note, Ashoka is a leather bomb on me. It's listed in the notes (which is surprising! leather in a historical Indian perfume?), but few others seem to get the leather the way I do. I want to try Rahele sooooo much :)

Fleurycat November 17, 2016

OMG I've been wanting to try Rahele after a sneak sniff at my local perfumerie: the owner only had a teeny tiny vial, so we couldn't really try it out, but what I smelled was fabulous! Mohur is stunning, l love almond milk.....,but something in Rahele sung of happiness! Fingers crossed. I'm hoping this is launched before the holidays so I can put in on a wish list.

Sarah November 17, 2016

Pichola! Bergamot. Sigh.
