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
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.
If you have enjoyed this then please pop over to Australian Perfume Junkies and continue the scented conversation.
We love visitors, say HI while you’re there.
