Love it: Curionoir’s beguiling new scent, Pablo

We all have different reasons for stopping to add that spritz of perfume before leaving the house – it’s a tool for seduction, can evoke happy memories and just add an extra element of individualism to the way you approach your day.
The new season doesn't just invite the opportunity to overhaul your wardrobe. With a bounty of new fragrance releases, it's also a good time to reconsider your scent. From the bottles to the base notes, winter's best new fragrances are a celebration of the bold, and I am all for a statement scent.
Coco Chanel once said that a woman should apply perfume in the areas where she would like to be kissed, but the experts generally agree that the "pulse points" are the optimal spot. These are locations on the body where the blood vessels are closest to the skin, and as these spots emanate heat, they help fragrance to travel from your skin into the air.
Experts say to apply your perfume to these points - namely, the inner wrists, the base of the throat, behind ear lobes, in the cleavage, behind knees, and the inner elbows – and this is where I am wearing my latest favourite, the truly enchanting and beguiling Pablo, from Curionoir.
Curionoir’s latest Extrait de Parfum and Glass Candle (next on my list) fragrance, Pablo, was reportedly inspired by a thought-provoking image of the great Pablo Picasso himself. It is fresh, spicy and powdery, with a definitely sexy undertone that will appeal to all ages and all sexes.
Available from the Curionoir Ponsonby Road f flagship store, exclusive boutiques and as of Monday, it includes notes of Lemon, Frankincense, Cuban Tobacco Leaves, Freesia, Mimosa, Coriander, Patchouli, Aniseed, Vanilla Absolute and Tonka Beans. I’ve been wearing it by night whilst the weather has been sticky but with the downturn in mercury will be pulling it out by day as well, and I definitely have one eye on that beautiful candle for winter nights indoors. 
“An image of Picasso sitting, smoking in his studio with the clearest mesmeric eyes, alluring skin, the lines on his f ace telling many stories, is the inspiration behind t his fragrance and candle scent, ” says Tiffany Jeans, Curionoir Creative Director and Founder. “The artist influenced so many with his work, but do we know enough about his life, the forbidden, and the forgotten. This fragrance is a journey, an exploration, somewhat magnetic, much like Pablo.”
As a Parfum, Pablo is available in a 4ml ‘Pocket’ size for $50, a 50ml bottle for $265, or at the flagship store only, customers can select t heir own bespoke hand-blown refillable glass bottle, from $490.
In t he CN Glass candle range, Pablo is poured into amber hand-blown glass vessels in two sizes, the Classic Glass 390 grams, $195, and the Demi Glass 85 grams for $105.
