Chez Moi in the Press: Nylon October 2007


In recent years a signature scent has come to mean more than simply the perfume you choose to dab on your pulse points. Your home is just as important a venue for conveying fragrance fancies. And while there are people, like myself, who take special care to find the perfect Diptyque candle or Votivo room mist to match their décor, there are also those who sadly still rely on a Glade plug-in to set the scent. L’Artisan Parfumeur’s latest venture into the home fragrance category is definitely for those in the former category. Their new Chez Moi Perfume Diffuser System is a fusion of luxury design and exquisite fragrance craftsmanship. The sleek rectangular diffuser is activated by the slightest touch and uses a heat-free piezoelectric system to emit soft waves throughout the room. The aroma itself emanates from a tiny polished balck bead containing the perfume of your choosing which is placed atop the diffuser. The five inaugural scents range from the woody, resin-heavy Cedre Bleu to the sweet, blooming Mimosa Marin. While the system will set you back quite a bit more than the average, OK, even the most fancy, candle, can you really put a price on olfactory perfection? I think not. FV
