"Perfumes of the Month" Winners!
We recreated our Académie de Parfum Members' fragrance recipes ... for some, this may be a daunting task, but our staff was excited to sniff out the winners! For a truly unbiased approach to selecting the fragrances, we simply numbered the beakers and each of us tallied up our top choices.
Many of our clients ask us how we are able to tolerate all of the scents that we come into contact with in our lab. The answer is quite simple: our noses have adapted! Don't get us wrong: we still smell coffee beans to reset our noses when we compare fragrances.
Our top picks for the Perfumes of the Month are:
FLAWLESS by Danielle. An elegantly composed fragrance that is sultry with hints of spice from ylang ylang, thyme and lavender that is balanced by subtle, sweet notes of red currant and vanilla.
LA BONNE VIE by Melissa. A bright and playful fragrance that has amber, Egyptian musk and vanilla undertones, with uplifting floral notes of gardenia, lily and hydrangea, as well as refreshing notes of cucumber and mint.
VISION by Charles. A bold fragrance that features highly sought-after oud and sophisticated notes of tobacco and neroli that are tempered by soft citrus and herbal notes.
These three fragrances are available for you to smell, sample or even buy in our La Jolla boutique. If you aren't able to come to our boutique, have no fear: you can order online! Our members will each receive a portion of the sales should their fragrances be purchased!
We congratulate our winners and encourage our other members to continue creating. The Fragrance of the Year Contest awaits us in a little more than six months!
Coronado: The Crowned One
Coronado, translated in Spanish as the “crowned one”, flaunts historic monuments, a picturesque beach and harbor, and year-round activities for the tourist and local alike. Tijon Parfumerie recently announced Coronado as the winner of its countywide Signature Scent contest. Voted on an online poll, Coronado is the second fragrance in the Parfumerie’s custom San Diego line; La Jolla being the first.
Why did San Diego choose Coronado as the next signature scent? Well, with views of Downtown San Diego and a ferry that crosses the bay, anyone can rent a bike, segway or surrey and simply cruise down the boardwalk while stopping along outstanding waterfront restaurants. The other side of the island is home to one of the Nation’s most beautiful beaches with rich white sand and the historic Hotel Del Coronado. This famous landmark and hotel is a great place to dine, admire the antique decor, or just relax at the 4-star spa.
With three different scents to choose from, the public is invited to stop by Tijon (7853 Herschel Ave.) during the month of July to vote on the perfume they think should be “crowned” the signature scent of San Diego’s beautiful beach town. There is also a drawing to win a free perfume creation experience!
