Holiday fragrance gifts 2017, part 6

Part six in our annual series of fragrance related holiday gifts features coffrets, kits and gift sets. (And, it is terribly late, apologies!

L’Artisan Parfumeur Histoire d’Orangers : Perfume Review

This review of Histoire d’Orangers, a fragrance created by perfumer Marie Salamagne for L’Artisan Parfumeur, continues both the Women in Perfumery and The Scents of Tea series.
