Hi Frag Friends, Robert H. here….
Phew. 2016. What a tumultuous year it was and all I can say is “Buh-bye 2016! Don’t let the door hit you on the way out! A year of highs and lows, and what got me through much of it was perfume. Always there at my beck and call…
In 2016 there were in excess of 2000 (yes you read that right!) new releases averaging out to almost 100 a month. Did I try even 10% of them? Possibly, but not likely. There were some standouts that I ended up loving. So in no particular order, here’s what was new to me in 2016….
*Boy by Chanel, a VERY unisex Fougere Cologne. Addictive. review: http://australianperfumejunkies.com/2016/06/16/boy-edp-chanel-review/
*Amouage Lilac Love, a truly gorgeous non-lilac lilac.
*Amouage Opus X, “The Red Violin” in a bottle. A weird and wonderful rose. review: http://australianperfumejunkies.com/2016/07/12/opus-x-amouage-review/
*Aroma M Voluptuous Nostalgia and Camellia Extrait, two of the finest contemporary but vintage-style perfumes. Gorgeous! review: http://australianperfumejunkies.com/2016/04/27/camellia-perfume-by-maria-mcelroy-for-aroma-m-perfumes-2014/t
*En Voyage Rainmaker, like walking through the Pacific Northwest rain forest. Amazing. review: http://australianperfumejunkies.com/2016/05/26/rainmaker-edp-en-voyage-perfumes-review/
*Dusita Issara, One of the finest oudh’s. Really. Even if you’re not an Oudh fan, try this, it’s stunning!
*MFK’s Grand Soir, my new cold weather go-to. Gourmand heaven. review: http://australianperfumejunkies.com/2016/09/27/random-fragrant-ramblings-mfk-giveaway/
*Zoologist Civet (releasing Dec.31st) exquisite. I can’t even. review: http://australianperfumejunkies.com/2016/10/29/civet-zoologist-perfumes-review-giveaway/
