About Me

My photo
This make-up artist and esthetician has a (bordering on unhealthy) addiction to all things beauty! No amount of eyeshadows or cream liners will ever be enough! I go giddy for all things girly. Lipgloss might not be able to heal the world, but it can lift a gal's spirits!

Memoire Liquide

I don't know about you, but even with loving my job as much as I do, often I daydream.....About being an interior decorator... Of one day giving up waxing for the love of opening a cupcakery bakery. One that I've always dreamed of doing, is also being a perfumer. Since a very young age, I've had the nose of a bloodhound. I've said it before, I could be used to help solve crimes! I associate memories vividly with scent. So imagine my surprise & joy when our Diva of Dermatology mentioned that they had opened a little Memoire Liquide Perfumery studio in my beloved Henri Bendel!
So I decided to give myself an early birthday treat when I was up in NYC for business. A Memoire Liquide Scent Specialist, in my case the divine Vijay, helped me customize a signature fragrance from a selection of at least over 75 different notes.
Your individual fragrance can also be added to lotions & bubble baths- isn't the packaging swoon worthy?!Of course I can't give away all of the secrets to my custom scent, but here are two notes that were included in the winning formula: Yuzu Fruit & Aquarelle- a marine scent which added a beachy vibe to the fragrance. Don't we all need a little more of a vacation feeling in our lives?
Here is the scentsational (yes, I know that was lame) Vijay whipping up my custom blend. The custom blend session can be as quick as 15 minutes if you are a decisive gal or up to an hour if you have a hard time committing to particular notes!
I must admit I used to associate perfume oils with hippies, but the ones that I've tried since broadening my horizons, including this one have left me pleasantly surprised at their staying power. This was a truly unique experience- wouldn't this be an amazing thing to do with bridesmaids or sisters as a gift? I was also pleasantly surprised at the reasonable pricepoint for the half ounce coming in at $65. I definitely suggest you create a liquid memory of your own.

Peace. Love. Lipgloss. M

FYI- the scentologist's full name is Vijay Uttam. Be sure to ask for him at Bendel's!
