With so many fragrances, choosing just 5 of them was not an easy task, but I chose the ones that personally pleased me the most with their mix of scents.
• TOP 5 Perfume at Esxence Milano:
• Les Amoureux de Peynet – Molinard:
Do you know when it is “love at first sight,” I mean, at the first smell? This was one of my favorite perfumes at Esxence Milano. One of Molinard’s new launching, Les Amoureux perfume de Peynet is a fresh scent, with delicate spicy ginger notes. And it was created as an emotional tribute from the perfumer to the artist, the illustrator of Les Amoureux!

• Seduction 2 from AK Parfumerie France:
With such a pink packaging, AK Parfumerie’s Seduction 2 perfume is a sweet fragrance. In general, sweet perfumes are not my favorites, but this one brings a combination that pleased me, probably because it also has some citrus notes.
