Award-Winning Perfume House Reveals Debút of 3 New Perfumes
By: En Voyage Perfumes
“Attendees are invited to meet the perfumer and experience the gourmand goodness of her new Souvenir De Chocolat perfume trio. We will sip champagne, sample chocolates and sniff the gorgeous smells”, according to Antonia Kohl, Tigerlily’s owner. ‘Shelley will give a brief presentation at 4:30, and will be available throughout the evening for bottle signing.”
“En Voyage strives to create meaningful opportunities for fragrance lovers to enjoy themselves and to learn. We’re very excited to be appearing at Tigerlily to share our new fragrances,”
About the New Fragrances
“Our mission is to incorporate vintage and modern fragrance materials to produce fine fragrances that make people happy. For this newest EnVoyage premiér, we virtually travelled the entire world to obtain the fragrant cultural hearts of chocolate, vanilla, amber, and coffee, states Waddington, perfumer for En Voyage.
“Each of these new fragrances is complete perfume unto itself. Using a proprietary technique that allows them to layer with other perfumes, each of these new fragrances becomes an almost bespoke perfume. The wearer is able to create multiple rich, vintage experiences of their own. Our clients can now be fragrance creators in their own right. In this way we’re able to provide a very new and unique experience for fragrance lovers.”
Café Cacao, is a stylized urban abstraction of the creamy goodness of the famous Parisienne café mocha —espresso café, steamed milk, dark cacao chaud — topped with uber-whipped cream, sprinkles of vanilla powder, rose sugar, and cardamom.
Set in a stunning yet subtle amber base that lends a much-appreciated wearability, Café Cacao emerges as a sensuous perfume with a surprisingly aphrodisiac effect. The fragrance of Café Cacao is exalted by the sparing use of precious natural ambergris and Himalayan musk. Excellent diffusion and longevity.

What People Are Saying:
“A mocha coffee lover's dream.” Huffington Post, Mary Orlin
“The texture of cream infused with white chocolate, coffee, sugar, a little vanilla, a hint of cardamom in a rich base of salty musks that make this fragrance, well, a fragrance – and not the smell of food. It is however the most edible of the three – and it is hella delicious.” ~Freddie Albrighton, London Fragrance Writer
Indigo Vanilla is The fragrance premiér of the blues and vanilla texture made musically famous by Gershwin, Billie Holiday, and Louis Armstrong, Indigo Vanilla is a fusion of the creamy goodness of the famous Paris and New Orleans blanc chocolat chaud made with steamed milk, sumptuous whipped cream, and topped with violette sucrée.
Set in a base that evokes the sensuous and sultry jazz of the 20’s, Indigo Vanilla emerges as a stylish and wearable fusion of amber, musk, violet, and creamy chocolate.
TOP: Sugared Violet
HEART: Chocolat Chaud, Crème Douce
BASE: Wood, Amber, Vanilla, Musk
What People Are Saying:
“Shelley's a classical perfumer, but her creations are completely original. My personal favorite, perhaps IMHO the best scent in the (Artisan Salon), is Indigo Vanilla. I love the contrast of the sugared violet notes with the white chocolate, vanilla and amber. Shelley is also a judge’s and people's award favorite, winning Best Aroma, Most Seductive Scent, Top Artisan Perfumer, and Best in Salon.” ~Huffington Post, Mary Orlin
“The violet is absolutely fantastic – a violet I’ve been hunting for. It’s rare that a violet fragrance comes along these days, and when it does it tends to be nothing “new”. Well, Indigo Vanilla is new, and is made with such intelligence it’s a dream come true and a beautiful piece of work.” ~Freddie Albrighton, London Fragrance Writer
Captured in Amber
Featuring the true classic Arabic and Persian amber cherished since antiquity, Captured in Amber showcases the sweet and slightly animalic scents of ambergris and labdanum, combined with vanilla, tonka bean, flowers, spices and woods. Resins of Egypt and India, frankincense, Peru and Tolu balsams, benzoin, patchouli, and myrrh evoke the Victorian era fetish for the Orient.
Captured in Amber, simply and perfectly paired with a dark heart of chocolate, is the opiated Oriental fantasy of Paris in 1910, London in 1890.

Classic Persian Amber
Dark South American Chocolate
Chocolate and amber, both associated with poetry and rapture, contain everything that makes a perfume magical. Both are excellent for healing the heart on a spiritual level.
What People Are Saying:
