Five from Majda Bekkali

Majda Bekkali Fusion Sacreé Lui

French niche line Majda Bekkali has launched three new fragrances: Fusion Sacrée Lui, Fusion Sacrée Elle and Mon Nom Est Rouge. The new trio joins two older fragrances from the line which are being relaunched in new packaging: J’ai Fait Un Rêve Lui and J’ai Fait Un Rêve Elle.

Fusion Sacrée Lui (shown) ~ by perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour; "...a perfume so deep, warm and boozy-woody thick/sweet that our eyes rolled back in our heads and we started muttering incoherently." With rum, citron, celery, sweet orange, neroli, cardamom, lavender, davana, bergamot, white coffee, tuberose, clove, geranium, pear, licorice, benzoin, opoponax, ambergris, cedar, sandalwood, vanilla, caramel and musk.

Fusion Sacrée Elle ~ by perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour; "The opening is a little unexpected, with hints of blackcurrant and citrusy bergamot and clementine tinged with coffee, a note that comes out more as the perfume melds with your skin. Heady florals like gardenia, jasmine and orange blossom meet their match with a deep base of fir, cedar, and patchouli." Additional notes include vanilla, benzoin and musk.

Mon Nom Est Rouge ~ by perfumer Cecile Zarokian; "Desire, passion, beauty and seduction…all are associated with the color red, and Mon Nom Est Rouge brazenly bares all and dares you to look." Featuring notes of pepper, lemon, elemi, pink pepper, metallic effect, Turkish rose, geranium, cardamom, cumin, cinnamon, ginger, incense, cedar, sandalwood, amber, vanilla, labdanum, patchouli, tonka bean and musk.

J’ai Fait Un Rêve Lui ~ by perfumer Marina Jung-Allegret; "Eclectic and extraordinary, J’ai Fait Un Rêve Pour Lui (formerly Songe pour Lui) is confident in its oppositions and perfectly at ease with taking any expectations you might have from reading its notes and blowing ‘em all sky high." With pink pepper, bergamot, jasmine, vanilla flower, oud, saffron, Atlas cedar and cashmere wood.

J’ai Fait Un Rêve Elle ~ by perfumer Dorothée Piot; "Both deep and ethereal, J’ai Fait Un Rêve is like falling into dream." Featuring petitgrain, elemi, cumin, currant leaves, orange blossom, jasmine, lisylang, castoreum, white musk, white cedar, guaiac, leather, labdanum, incense and papyrus.

The Majda Bekkali fragrances can be found now at Luckyscent, in 50 and 120 ml Eau de Parfum.

    Curious about any and all of these. Love that bottle.

    • Robin says:

      I can’t decide about the bottle. At least it’s not dull!

  2. ringthing says:

    Bertrand Duchaufour is everywhere right now! These sound delicious and those bottles are certainly gorgeous. I won’t live long enough to try all these perfumes.

    • Robin says:

      IMHO, he is *too* everywhere…I love his work, but it is less of a draw when there is so much of it.

  3. lucasai says:

    I’ve got samples of these three new.

    • maggiecat says:

      What do you think? When there are so many notes, it’s hard for me to tell if the scent is delightful and complex, or just a mess.

      • lucasai says:

        Maggie, it’s terribly hard to make up ones mind on them. They really overflow with notes and one moment they smell great and one moment they smell meh

  4. LaMaroc says:

    When I first saw the picture of the bottle, I thought the bottle was tipped over and the wood cap was a “spill” of something viscous. Now I see it more clearly…somewhat, but it keeps morphing back and forth like one of those young lady/old crone pictures.

  5. dolcesarah says:

    I want the rouge
    Anything with labdanum. What are some other labdanum frags I can sink my nose into, please help.

  6. SmokeyToes says:

    I’m enchanted by those bottles. Simply gorgeous.

  7. mllejae says:

    Tried these at Jovoy in Paris. Loved j’ai fete un reve LUI more than the elle.

  8. Supersmell says:

    I’ve just received a sample of “Mon nom est rouge”.

    If you’re into Amouage’s “Epic” and think it is too expensive,
    here’s the not so costly alternative.

    Frankly, I cannot smell much of a difference.
