It's becoming increasingly difficult to find niche, artisan or natural perfume brands that embody our philosophy of cruelty-free fragrances combined with an emphasis on fine natural ingredients and genuine artistry. When I got the chance to familiarize myself with Exaltatum, I just felt I had smelled the next brand that could go the distance of a house like the très populaire (and totally worshipped by me from the very first whiff) Papillon Artisan Perfumes.
I compare the two perfume houses because every perfume offered feels so rich, so full, like all of the perfumer's heart and soul was poured into every creation. It's like the perfume was not released until it felt totally perfect to its creator. The wearer can smell the blood, sweat, tears and (perhaps most importantly) TIME from the very first moment they get their nose on one of them. Any of them. With both brands, every time I think I have chosen my favorite, yet still deeply appreciate the others, another one becomes my favorite. With Papillon, I was sure that Bengale Rouge could never be my favorite because I'm not a huge fan of tonka bean; however it is currently my absolute addiction. Similarly, while I was sure that Exaltatum's Mimosa Gold could never be my favorite because I tend to like darker perfumes, I am finding the combination of powdery almond blossom mixed with creamy French mimosa absolute irresistible.
I hope you enjoy this YouTube video review. I mostly wanted to talk about the best-seller, Ruby Wood and Exaltatum's two new releases, St. Paul's and Mimosa Gold. We have the entire collection of 5 perfumes in stock. Would love your feedback! ;)
