A Hound CaFleureBon Post: Perfume Review: Guerlain L’Art et la Matière Cuir Beluga (2005) Olivier Polge + Solace in Central Park Draw

When many of us think of the House of  Guerlain, most perfumistas immediately identify with  the great vintage fragrances of historical classic perfumery such as Jicky (1889), Mitsouko (1919),L’Heure Bleu (1912) Shalimar (1925), Vol de Nuit (1933) to name a few. Cuir Beluga carries on the great tradition of Guerlain as part of the Guerlain L’Art et la Matière collection.  And even though it’s the height of summer, Cuir Beluga has the ability to sweep you away to find some much need wintertime solace in the heart of New York City’s Central Park.  For the full review and the incredible draw, click here.

A Hound CaFleureBon Post: Perfume Review: Caron Paris En Avion + Celebrating Amelia Earhart Day July 24, 2014 Fountain Fragrance Draw


77 years ago, Amelia Earhart disappeared while trying to fly solo around the world.  Caron’s En Avion was created in celebration of the original adventuresome pilots from the 1920s and 1930s.  Check out my new CaFleureBon post about these women and enter into the draw for a 7.5ml Caron fountain bottle of En Avion Parfum Extrait!  Sorry, the draw is only open to readers in the U.S.  Read the full article by clicking here!

En Avion became a summer staple for me this year.  I originally gave it a four bone rating…but it’s creeping up to a 4.5 these day!  You can find my original Scented Hound review by clicking here.
