The Buzz

About: A Pioneer Perfume Blog est. 2006 by Chantal-Hélène Wagner. A Blog on Perfume & Society, with Notes on Beauty - News, Reviews, Interviews, Commentary & Criticism.

I earned a doctorate in anthropology after managing a multi-year, fieldwork research on foodways & social memory in several comparative geographic areas.

I have smelled the steppes of Mongolia, the oil fields of Kazakhstan, Soviet apartments, and the subway in New York and Paris. They all smell strangely exotic, with one common point: the scent of humanity.

Walmart + Coty Launch Romantic Collection Love 2 Love Signed by Great Perfumers (2014) {New Fragrances}


Giant retail chain Walmart have partnered with Coty Inc. to launch a new collection of women's perfumes entitled Love 2 Love comprising four "Perfectly Paired Fragrances for Perfect Pairs in Love"...

The four dual compositions symbolizing harmonious sentimental pairings and great chemistry are called Fresh Rose + Peach, Jasmine + Sparkling Mimosa, Freesia + Violet Petals, and Orange Blossom + White Musk

"When the right pair connects, the spark between them is captivating. Conversations flow, laughter comes easily and bonding is a breeze. Life is so much sweeter when they are together. Simply put, they are the perfect match. 

The Love2Love fragrance collection was inspired by a spectrum of colors that express a woman’s joy and sheer happiness. Each shamelessly feminine scent will speak to the woman who loves the idea of being in love. One spritz will make her smile as she imagines the exciting possibilities a new day could bring." 
Fresh Rose + Peach was created by perfumer Calice Becker of Givaudan.
"Two create a fragrance of lasting happiness." The eau de toilette opens with juicy notes of peach nectar, lychee and fresh cassis buds seguing into notes of geranium and Bulgarian rose oil and resting on musk and orris in the base.
Jasmine + Sparkling Mimosa is a fragrance composed by Richard Herpin of Firmenich.
"Two create a fragrance of pure joy."  The blend has top notes of dewy peony, raspberry kiss and sparkling mimosa followed by middle notes of honeysuckle, intoxicating jasmine and sweet pea and base notes of skin musk, warm rosewood and decadent almond blossom.
Freesia + Violet Petals is co-signed by Sophia Grojsman and Bruno Jovanovic of IFF
"Two create a fragrance of elegant sensuality." In the head we have a delicate and sweet mix of peach blossom, lily petals and lavender blooms fading into heart notes of freesia, rose and violet blossom. The base notes are sheer musk, heliotropine and cedarwood. .  
Orange Blossom + White Musk is the work of Maurice Roucel of Symrise
"Two create a fragrance of indulgent pleasure." The opening features sparkling bergamot and juicy orange notes leading to a heart of orange blossom and soft peony and a base with orris, white musk and cozy sandalwood. 
Eau de Toilette 3.4 fl. oz. / 100 ml $9.98
Body Mist 8.0 fl. oz. / 240 ml $6.98
