Did you know that National Fragrance Day is March 21st? It celebrates all wonderful smelling things in this world, especially perfumes. You can celebrate this day by buying cologne or perfume for you or as a gift for someone. I have found a wonderful fragrance line called Mémoire Liquide.
The intertwining nature of scent and memory is at the heart of Mémoire Liquide. It is a simple story: two sisters with a lifelong passion for fragrance search the world's finest fragrance materials and set out to compose truly original bespoke fragrances ultimately creating a devoted following. This process of scent exploration invariably triggers potent memories, and specific scents spark a flood of reminiscence; stories are told, tears are shed, secrets are shared. In the process there is the desire and inspiration to touch more people with beauty and so the story unfolds........................Mémoire Liquide Reserve Editions.........Remember......Be Remembered.
I received a full sized sample of their Reserve Edition Amour Liquide perfume along with several smaller samples. I also received a luxurious hand cream that smells wonderful and makes my hands feel like silk.
What I love about Mémoire fragrances is that they are soft, feminine and beautiful without any of that musky scent (that I will never understand.) I enjoy a girly fragrance that includes florals and sweet scents of all sorts, and I have found that with
I love Amour Liquid. It smells like sweet cupcake frosting. Quite a delicious fragrance, actually.
Amour Liquide: The memory of exhilarating, romantic love, at once soul soothing and breath taking Pure Madagascar Vanilla, Tonka Bean and Incense. Top Note: Black Orchid, Middle Note: Tonka Bean, Madagascar Vanilla, Base: Incense.

Beyoncé believes a woman’s power comes from within and when a woman connects with her very essence, she revels in her individuality, her strength, and her beauty. To honor this elevated and empowering attitude, Beyoncé was inspired to create her newest scent, RISE. "The spirit of RISE encourages women to be all that we are,” said Beyonce.
To create this exciting new scent Beyoncé partnered with Loc Dong, a perfumer at IFF, to design a melodic mélange of accords that leave a lasting impression. RISE is a rich and intoxicating luminous floral with beautiful top notes of Italian Bergamot, Golden Apricot and Iced Basil Sorbet; Luscious middle notes of Gold Symphony Orchid, Freesia Blossom and Natural Jasmine Sambac and sensual bottom notes that include Autumn Woods Accord, Cashmere Musk and Vetiver Extract.
Gold is also featured prominently in the RISE bottle designed by Ken Hirst. The gold juice is encased in a tall, elegant glass bottle that emulates the trajectory of Beyoncé’s ability, and will, to rise above it all. The RISE collection has been designed to deliver this alluring new scent in several fragrant forms. You can choose to wear one alone or combine them to give you the inspiration you need to reach new heights.
My Experience: I received a sample of RISE Beyoncé to review and to keep. The fragrance is a beautiful, exotic scent that is floral and has hints of musk. I think it is an alluring fragrance that I would wear on date nights with my husband. It makes me feel pretty and feminine.

Are you ready for instant prime time?
EmerginC's anti-aging Red Carpet Primer will take you there!
New York, NY- emerginC, a leading cosmeceutical skin care line, is excited to present Red Carpet Primer. This tinted advanced primer is infused with plant-based hydrating and plumping micro-spheres, plus other natural ingredients, to immediately reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
For those who want to look their very best every day, this naturally-tinted formulation primes the skin for a flawless, long-lasting make-up application, while fighting free-radicals and brightening and nourishing the skin with an infusion of cutting-edge, highly advanced vitamin C.
Pure vitamin C is very unstable. Yet emerginC has sourced the most stable, oil-soluble form of vitaminC available to penetrate the epidermis and provide numerous anti-aging benefits to the skin. This super anti-oxidant offers whitening properties, collagen synthesis, reduces UVA and UVB damage and protects against cell damage.
Filling wrinkles is one of the most sought-after promises in skincare. Immediate filling of lines is conducted in dermatology by specific botox or collagen injections. As a topical alternative, emerginC uses the technology of two types of Filling Spheres to immediately reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Vegetal Filling Spheres are dehydrated microspheres of acacia that rehydrate when exposed to water to regain their initial volume. They penetrate the skin when they are small and dehydrated in the formula, and then swell once they are exposed to the watery epidermis inside. This volume change an almost immediate smoothing of the skin surface and reduces small wrinkles within one hour. Vegetal Filling Spheres are also ideal moisturizers, since after remaining in the hollow of the wrinkle, they are degraded by enzymes and slowly release the water initially taken up. Hyaluronic Fillings Spheres are also used in Red Carpet Primer and have a similar high water retention capacity that helps smooth crow's feet in just one hour.
emerginC's Anti-Aging Red Carpet Primer Benefits:
- Conceals large pores
- Primes the skin for a flawless make-up application
- Instantly reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Hydrates and protects against free-radical damage, brightens complexion
- Fills in fine lines and wrinkles with a Silicone infused silky application
My Experience: I was sent a tube of emerginC's Anti-Aging Red Carpet Primer to review. I put it to use one cloudy morning before I was to head out to a funeral. (Thankfully it was not raining.) On cloudy days, I believe that every skin flaw shows up because of the lighting. As for my own experience, clouds amplify my pores, blemishes and wrinkles. Needless to say, I was thrilled to get the chance to put my emerginC's Anti-Aging Red Carpet Primer to the test. That morning, I applied it all over my facial area on to my clean skin. I let it set for at least one minute before I applied my foundation (which I probably didn't even need. The tint in the primer makes my skin look flawless alone.) After I did apply my foundation, I looked at my face in the mirror for a bit. My skin looked absolutely young and truly flawless. No more visible pores. No longer could I see my fine lines. It looked as if I had brand new skin! I am amazed with this product. It is like a miracle for me!

Mémoire Liquide Reserve Edition
History. In the beginning of Marcel Proust’s epic, “In Search of Lost Time”, the narrator dips a madeleine cookie into a cup of tea. The scent unleashes a torrent of childhood memories that span the rest of the novel. Thus, psychologists call the power of scent to evoke memories the “Proustian Phenomenon”.
The intertwining of scent and memory is the basis of Mémoire Liquide Perfumery. Over the course of almost three decades, more than 6,000 scents have been created at our custom fragrance bars. All recipes have been catalogued – each one a footnote in the wearer’s great novel of life.
Mémoire Liquide Reserve Edition combines the highest quality fragrance oils, sourced from all over the world. Five of our most beloved fragrance blends are now presented in a ready-to-wear EDP spray, which is housed in an intricate gilt-edge casing. Mémoire Liquide Reserve Edition will inspire the new, recapture the forgotten, and unlock the unknown.
Boca Raton, FL (June 2013) – Sandow Brands, LLC announced the re-launched of prestige fragrance brand, Mémoire Liquide. The brand that revolutionized bespoke perfumery will be partnering with iconic retailers, Hudson’s Bay of Canada and Lord & Taylor of the United States, and plans on debuting its fragrances by Fall 2013.
Embrace YOUR story.
Encens Liquide ~ The memory of gently wafting ceremonial incense in Japan, soft smoke trailing its mysterious and sultry veil. Soft Amber Resin, White Musk, Black Tea and enchanting Hinoki Incense.
Fleur Liquide ~ The memory of dew soaked flowers at dawn and night blooming flowers just before sunset. Orange Blossom, Fresh Mimosa and Night Blooming Jasmine.

I was sent samples of Mémoire Liquide Fragrance to review. I received the Fleur Liquide and the Amour Liquide, each of which could not have been more perfect for hinting at the novel of my own life stories.
The Fleur Liquid embraces my feminine girly side. It thoroughly captures the essence of my womanhood and my love for the beauty of nature. Flowers are the epitome of romance to me. I love tropical flowers, especially and this intoxicating fragrance brings me back to my memories of being on the beach in Hawaii where I spent my honeymoon. I get lost in this scent. It makes me completely blissful whenever I put it on. I love it!
The Amour Liquide brings out my exotic side. I have an air of mystery to me that no man could ever figure out, and I like to keep it that way. It adds a bit of a spark to life. Amour Liquid reminds me that I have a sense of adventure that I would like to explore. Whenever I wear this, it seems fitting that I am ready to go out for a night on the town and have some fun.
Each fragrance that I received came in a gift set that included a luxurious body creme. I must say that whenever I have used perfumed body cremes in the past, I was rather dissapointed in the texture of the cremes until now........
Mémoire Liquide hand and body cremes are rich, silky, smooth and my skin has never felt softer. I am absolutely delighted! Not only does my body feel pampered from head to toe, The fragrance is just lovely. Not overpowering, just perfectly subdued, yet delightful.
Additional Mémoire Liquide Reserve Edition products will be launching at Hudson’s Bay and Lord & Taylor throughout 2013. For more information, please visit www.memoireliquideperfume.com.
