V Canto: Is Love at First Scent Real?

Dear lovers of exotic and unique scents, welcome to another unusually fragrant story on the Mr.M blog. After fashion, interesting travels and life topics, I decided to share with you my opinion whether there is love at first scent.

The historical question is about true attraction and is there really love at first sight? Have you ever thought about the elements of fatal attraction? what can really affect mutual attraction? Is it maybe someone’s scent, voice, gestures or something else?

Scientists claim that there are theories of fatal attraction that can be based on the theory of scents. The sense of smell (olfaction) is one of the most important senses for the first impression. We use this sense consciously. For example, to smell a flower…

On an unconscious level, our brain relies heavily on smell. When we eat, we recognize by smell whether that food is good or not. Smell is one of the deciding factors when we fall in love. We are not even aware of how much information our brain receives every day using only the sense of smell.

December is a special month when the real power of attraction is celebrated and there is always the famous dilemma: What is the ideal gift for the New Year?

Of course, there are many ideas and people are different, so the interests are different. That is why it is important to buy an impressive gift that will always remind them of you and some beautiful moments. People say that a smile is the best gift, but the perfume and fragrant notes it carries are unforgettable.

I’m sure you remember the Italian perfume house Tiziana Terenzi, I wrote about their unusual perfumes, which with their unique and exotic fragrant notes win the hearts of people all over Europe and the world. If you want to be reminded of my story about Tiziana Terenzi’s fragrant world, visit the following link.

V Canto is a new line of perfumes from the family company Cereria Terenzi Evelino, behind which proudly stand Paolo Terenzi and Tiziana Terenzi, who are also the founders of the perfume brand Tiziana Terenzi. The “Divine Comedy” of the famous Dante Alighieri served as the inspiration for the founding of the V Canto line, and this unusual line of parfait uniquely describes the love for the homeland and the roots.

Inspired by the verses and places mentioned in the work itself, a line of unique exotic perfumes was created. The first perfumes were introduced in 2015, and since then, the Terenzi family has not ceased to delight with their incredible fragrant collections.

Why are V Canto perfumes unique? Each of the perfumes has the task of taking each person on an unusual fragrant journey with its exotic notes. Seductive fragrant notes are in an unusual way to evoke the story of human nature and become a faithful companion.

If you want to meet a person, perfume is a “mirror” of a soul because the scents we wear are a reflection of our character, they depict a human being in its purest form.

V Canto fragrant notes carry with them the beauty of medieval poetry, true art and the human soul.

V Canto line has a large number of perfumes and scented candles, but this time I tried to find the right notes in the “fragrant paradise” of the Terenzi family that define my character and sensibility.

This line has 5 seductive collections of fragrant notes that will capture your heart, some collections are named after colors from Divine Comedy such as Blue, Green and Red, while two collections have special names such as Love Leaves and Souls of the Castle.

V Canto Isotta, a fragrance that is easy to remember and hard to forget! The purple color symbolizes nobility, wisdom, creativity, mystery and dignity, and therefore the Isotta packaging proudly has this color.

How did this idyllic fragrant creation come about and who served as the inspiration? This creation was inspired by one of the most important “souls” who ever lived in Gradara castle, Princess Isotta, the wife of Prince Sigismondo. A beautiful, charming and intelligent fatal woman, her behavior, only posture and manners were not only gentle and refined but also energetic. She was a sophisticated strategist, with unique skills in the art of diplomacy and war.

Wise and determined, able to command armies and rule with her Prince, she was as strong and determined as the essence of the perfume itself, which she used as a purely artistic inspiration.

What are the ingredients that make V Canto Isotta perfume so special? Isotta is a unique harmony of specially selected fragrant notes and belongs to the collection of the Souls of the Castle.

  • Top notes: Sorrento Lemon, Sicilian Grapefruit, Japanese, Spearmint, Eucalyptus
  • Heart notes: Bulgarian Rose, African Geranium, Jasmine Absolute
  • Base notes: Cedarwood, Vanilla Bean, Tonka Bean, Musk

These fragrant notes leave a gentle and persistent mark on its wearer. Unisex fragrant creation inspired by refined elegance and royal beauty.

Another fragrant creation I have chosen to brighten up my winter days is V Canto Malatesta. This creation is inspired by the essence of nobility and strength characteristic of the Malatesta family, one of the most important families in the history of Italy. The fragrant story begins with a bouquet of Italian citrus, where Sicilian orange and Calabrian mandarin sprout, accentuated with royal notes of oris.

The Florentine lily, as it is also known, is an essential symbol of the Italian nobility, and these iris roots are as rare as they are precious. This royal head rests imperially on a carpet of martial intensity that beats as if to the sounds of drums. The freshness of Italian lavender includes the softness of jasmine, while the strength of cedar and Tuscan leather is accentuated by sparkling pink pepper.

Who was the inspiration for the Malatesta perfume? The Malatesta were a noble Italian family, among the most important and influential in the Middle Ages. The most important of this tribal lineage was Malatesta da Verucchio, who, thanks to his military and political abilities, took the name Mastin Vecchio (old bulldog). His eldest son, Giovanni Malatesta (known as Gianciotto, Lord of Gradara), unfortunately became notorious in the tragedy of Dante Alighieri in the Fifth Canto of Inferno. Dante tells a love story between Gianciotto’s older brother Paolo and his beautiful wife Francesca. Eternal love that still resonates for centuries from the castle walls along and across the valley.

The most famous of all Malatesta was without a doubt Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta, with whom the family reached the peak of its fame and fortune. This creation is inspired by the essence of nobility and strength characteristic of the Malatesta family, one of the most important families in the history of Italy.

What are the ingredients that make V Canto Malatesta perfume so special? Malatesta is a special harmony of fragrant notes and also belongs to the collection of the Soul of the Castle.

  • Top notes: Sicilian Orange, Calabrian Mandarin, Lily of Florence, Orris
  • Heart notes: Italian Lavender, Jasmine, Cedar of Lebanon, Pink Pepper, Tuscan Leather
  • Base notes: Musk, Vanilla Bean, Cambodian Oudh, Agarwood, Red Patchouli

The basis of this creation lies in the royal strength and elegance, in which an alliance of precious trees emerges, such as Cambodian oudh, agarwood and Indian red patchouli accented with vanilla and musk berries. An elegant and seductive creation that sums up the spirit of the kingdom in just one drop of perfume.

Roja Parfums: Chypré Extraordinaire, a fragrance to remember…

My dear travelers and fashionistas, how are you today? I am sure you are doing well and you are ready to enjoy my story today. Late last year, I shared with you my experience with Roja Dove perfumes, luxurious fragrant notes that are simply impossible to forget.

If you want to remind of my reviews of Roja perfumes from my collection or want to get better acquainted with basic terms such as “Pyramid of Fragrances”, I believe this post will help you.

Today I will tell you something more about the most famous Roja perfume from the “Haute Luxe” collection that captivates all your senses – Roja Chypré Extraordinaire perfume.

The name Chypre comes from a French word meaning the famous island of Cyprus. The forerunner of today’s chypre perfumes is François Coty’s perfume, which in its original composition had perfect notes of oakmoss, labdanum and bergamot, and the name Coty Chypre perfume was created due to the need to indicate the fact that all ingredients were mostly from Mediterranean countries.

Roja Chypré Extraordinaire consists of the classic structure of Chypre – a typically woody and mossy scent that shows the subtle strength of character. This fragrant creation represents something completely new and extraordinary in the perfume world. Paying homage to the eponymous island of Cyprus, together with the unusual fragrant notes of cedar and sandalwood, it revives the beauty of Mother Nature. The extraordinary scent of bergamot is mixed with juicy and sweet peach, whose softness is recognized through the indulgent heart of creamy Tuberose, and in this way this fragrant story has a unique velvety and soft touch that inspires all your senses.

What are the ingredients that make Roja Chypré Extraordinaire so special?

  • Top Notes: Aldehydes, Bergamot
  • Heart Notes: Geranium, Rose de Mai, Orange Blossom, Jasmin de Grasse, Tuberose, Ylang Ylang, Cistus, Heliotrope, Violet, Blackcurrant Buds, Peach, Plum
  • Base Notes: Clove, Cumin, Patchouli, Moss Base, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Benzoin, Vanilla, Tonka Bean, Amber, Orris, Styrax, Leather, Civet, Musk

Mr. Roja Dove, one of the most famous perfumers in the world and the founder of the British house of fragrance Roja Parfums at the promotion of Roja Chypré Extraordinaire perfume said:

“I have a great love for Chypre perfumes. I find them convincing – their magnetic attraction is simply impossible to resist. Impeccably refined and tailor-made, they require attention and respect. These perfumes are difficult to make perfect, I love harmony and all the challenges that come with working with this type of perfume. In this fragrant composition, I combined the moss with the warmth of a classic Chypre with an unexpected bouquet of sensual white flowers and a juicy fragrant note of peach. For those who share my love for Chypre fragrances, this contrasting blend of materials is completely unexpected and also the reason why this creation is truly extraordinary. ”

White teeth at home with Silk’n ToothWave!

Hello guys, how are you today? When I was younger, I kept wondering when would be the best time to start changing my daily life habits. Of course, when we decide that the time has come to change ourselves, then we start thinking in the direction of what would be best to change first.

I always tried to take care of my oral hygiene, but there was always the famous BUT moment,  this time in my case it was the whiteness of my teeth. I try to use toothpastes that will gradually whiten my teeth, but trying not to damage my tooth enamel.

Almost two months ago when I got the Silk’n ToothWave electric toothbrush I decided to give it a try. Reading the instructions manual for using and reviews on the internet, I realized that it takes 6 to 8 weeks to notice the final results.

I have to admit that I had given up using electric brushes, but due to the positive reviews of other users, I decided to give the Silk’n ToothWave electric toothbrush a chance and see if I would really get my desired results.

Because this electric toothbrush is different than other electric toothbrushes on the market. It not only removes plaque, but also reduces stains, discoloration and even tartar! So I had to try it to see if my teeth would get whiter or not.

When I started using this toothbrush the first thing I noticed was the softness of the brush head and the unusual silence mode. I admit, because of my problems with sensitive gums, I really liked it, but I wondered if this toothbrush would really be able to clean my teeth. As week by week passed, I finally noticed the results that I wanted to reach!

My gums are very sensitive and I used to notice blood during brushing my teeth before, but after I started using the Silk’n ToothWave electric toothbrush, I noticed that my gums had hardened and there was no more bleeding. In just six weeks, I was able to whiten my teeth and remove tartar from my teeth.

For me, this was a wonderful experience because I got exceptional and incomparable results with Silk’n ToothWave than it was with the previous toothbrushes I used. My teeth were cleaner for a long time during the day and I didn’t need to use chewing gum to avoid collecting food after a meal.

My co-workers thought I was crazy, but over time they realized that I was only thrilled with the results because they all knew about my obsession with whitening my teeth. At the end of this post you can see my results before and after using Silk’n ToothWave electric toothbrush. Silk’n ToothWave works with the special DentalRF™ technology which is able to remove plaque and reduce stains, discolouration and tartar with mild radio frequency waves.

The only thing you need to do is to be patient and set aside just four minutes of your time each day and let the Silk’n ToothWave toothbrush do its job.

Actually, you don’t have to change your dental cleaning routine at all, because all of us brush our teeth two minutes a day. So just replacing your old toothbrush with Silk’n ToothWave is the way to go!

This electric toothbrush has three speeds and modules of use, with the help of the user manual that comes with the brush, you will see how you can properly use this incredible brush and clean your teeth nice and easy.

As I previously said, you can choose between 3 vibration speeds modules. At its highest vibration speed, the electric toothbrush makes up to 48,000 vibrating brush strokes per minute. But the real deal is the DentalRF™ technology that really makes a difference in the way your teeth look and feel.

The smart timer also reminds you every 30 seconds to switch to the next area of your mouth. The electric toothbrush switches off automatically after 2 minutes of use. Best of all, Silk’n ToothWave is also waterproof, so you can use it in the shower or in the bath if you are in a hurry for work or some meeting, believe me I also had those situations.

You can buy Silk’n ToothWave at several online shops:

  1. Silk’n official online shop
  3. Amazon

Guys, we have reached the end of a special daily beauty routine post . Time always flies when you have a good time! Let’s use this summer to do something good for ourselves.

Each of us should dedicate a few minutes of our time every day for health and beauty care. I will do my best to write  more posts on this topic in the future and I hope Silk’n will help me with that!
