Metropolitain Cosmetics - Perfume Wish list

Wednesday, 14 November 2018


If you know me, you know I love perfumes. The other day, my friend and myself were in Truworths, and as she was paying, she says "Go to the perfumes, I know you want to." I just can't help myself. But the one thing I must admit, although I love the Georgio Armani's and Narciso perfumes. There is nothing as beautiful as the exclusive perfumes found at Metropolitain Cosmetics

From the beautiful Serge Lutens brand, to brands I had never heard of. I thought with Christmas coming up, I would share my Metropolitain perfume wish list with you and give you a little info about each one. 


1. Juliette has a Gun - Mmmm (R 2230.00 for 100ml)

I first smelt Juliette has a Gun - Not a perfume and instantly was a fan. Then I smelt this and I am taken aback. This is beautiful. With top notes of Neroli, Geranium and Raspberry. Middle notes of Orange Blossom, Tuberose, Jasmine and Iris. Base notes of Patchouli, Sandalwood and White Musk. 

This is a mixture of sweet forbidden fruit with a hint of musk. It is so beautiful.

2. Serge Lutens - Ambre Sultan (R1790.00 for 50ml)

I have a intimate love for Serge Lutens perfumes. Each perfume is created from a special memory. A scented was was found in a forgotten box and only after the composition was reworked with a composition of smells including vanilla, did this perfect fragrance come alive. Notes of Coriander, amber, oregano, bay leaf, myrtle, angelica root, sandalwood, patchouli, benzoin, vanilla 

I love anything vanilla. This perfume has been on my wish list for years. 

3. Roos & Roos - Song for a Queen (R 3690.00 for 100ml)

I have found a real love for Jasmine. It is so beautiful and sensual. Combine this with vanilla and I'm hooked. This perfume has top notes of Jasmine and bergamot, middle notes of orange blossom and base notes of vanilla, cashmere wood and white musk. This is bound to smell amazing. And just look at that bottle.

4. Teo Cabanel - Barkhane (R 3450.00 for 100ml)

I had never heard of Teo Cabanel perfumes before. While scrolling through their perfumes, I came across this beautiful bottle. And then I read that it is a woody perfume. I love that woody, oriental fragrance. With top notes of calabrian bergamot, middle notes of cumin and curry tree and base notes of patchouli, vetiver, tonka bean and vanilla. I am in heaven with those fragrances.

5. The Different Company - Jasmin du Nuit (R 1990.00 for 90ml)

Described as a constellation of notes, this sparkling perfume will take you on a Jasmine journey. With top notes of star anise, bergamot and mandarin, middle notes of jasmin absolute, cardamom and cinnamon and base notes of sandalwood, amber and patchouli. The Jasmin absolute and amber combination already has me drawn in. 

If you would like to sample and try any of these perfumes, you can head to your nearest Metropolitain Cosmetics store (Sandton City, Hyde Park, Melrose Crossing and Parkhurst) and one of the wonderful ladies will help you. 

They also do exclusive beauty brands like Strivectin, Makeup Forever and By Terry. Only the best exclusive brands. Definitely give the a look if you are looking for something special.

Metropolitain Cosmetics is also having a Super Sale at the moment, with up to 70% off selected discontinued items.
