Look what we stumbled on the other day. This Souvenir Doll is SO well made (by hand). But. What a nasty and unfriendly face she has! Or is she just sad? Never mind. It is some fine Folk art! N’est pas?
“The Scent of Departure can make your dream come true with its line of collectable perfumes dedicated to bring back home one’s unforgettable trip. Not only a perfume, not just a souvenir, The Scent of Departure is the essence of a city in a bottle.”
Funny perfume, by Gérald Ghislain perfumer and Magali Sénéquier, designer. Wrapped in a tight concept,and we like that! The e-shop has no shopping cart but ‘My luggage’ and your luggage is filled with ‘souvenirs’ etc. Make sure to check out the site to see what we mean, it’s fun!

We choose Destination Munich:“Top: Bergamot, Orange, Lemon, Tangerine, Spices. Heart: Green tea, Spring flowers, Lily of the valley, Lilac, Violet, Marine flowers. Base: Whites musk, Sandalwood, Gaïac wood.
“An ode to the München gentle way of life, in a crisp, refreshing and green scent. Like drinking iced lemon tea on a picnic in the Englischer Garten, lying on a luxurious floral bed under blooming lilacs. A scent for lazy sunny days to savor from Nymphenburg Palace to Kleinhesseloher See.”
We find this story to be true, really! And it helps reading the story while smelling the perfume. The scent is unmistakably unisex with a spicy touch and it’s fresh at the same time. It’s more than a gimmick, in fact it’s quite chique. We give Munich a thumps up!!
