Love at first sight, at first touch, at first breath. Delightful elegant box, blotters with beautiful pictures, sealed into an envelope - top-level aesthetics.
Three fragrances, three olfactive stories about beauty and sensuality.
MOTHER X LOVE - Romantic, delicate; like a swan fluff that envelops the skin with a warm cloud. Juicy ginger, sweet vanilla - and a pod, and a flower, fluffy musk - it is impossible to breathe. With each breath you want to feel the aroma longer and longer.
NANYANG - A spectacular ode to green tea; the most extraordinary tea I've ever met in the perfume market. Leather, saffron, and green tea - unusual and very, very beautiful. Like a slice of suedge, soaked with a tightly brewed green tea and sprinkled with a pinch of saffron. Antidepressant aroma, replaces rain with the sun, grayness with bright colours, darkness with light.
LOST LOVERS - Extravagant rose union with sandalwood and vetiver. Rose - garden, fragrant, washed with dew. Vetiver - a little smoky, calm and quiet. Sandalwood is stunningly thick, sensual and very, very beautiful. Sweet life full of happiness.
Sincerely fascinated by the collection.

MOTHER X LOVE opens on the skin as an ethereal cloud of aromatic freshness. A delicate touch of ginger maintains its effervescent qualities as it's joined by a melange of soft white florals on a base of vanilla and white musks. As the fragrance evolves on the skin, the musk rises to the surface where they remain until the end, evoking images of cashmere.
The overall feeling conveyed by the fragrance is airy, elegant and comforting. The beauty of MOTHER X LOVE is its polished simplicity that lets the quality of the raw materials shine. It is a fragrance that I have found myself reaching for more and more lately in recent times of stress. It is completely unisex and perfectly versatile.
Performance on this fragrance is fantastic too. I get all day longevity and a moderate sillage, dropping closer to the skin around the 3 hour mark.

It is in the small, normally unseen details of design that I love when it comes to most things in life. Perfume is no exception to this.
There are elements to Maison de L'Asie's bottle design and packaging that you may miss if you're not looking for them. You will see the care, the attention and the stories Elizabeth Liau, the founder of Maison de L'Asie is trying to show.
This is the first chapter which represents nostalgia and memories of Singapore.
With vivid aromatic tones of vetiver, Lost Lovers opens with lush green notes, evoking images of young plants unfurling in a forest, but with time, this complex fragrance becomes richer and warmer, pairing the smoothness of sandalwood and amber with the smoky, sensual elements of vetiver.

Nanyang is lovely. The brand aims to create French perfumes with Asian overtures and I can totally get that. The quality of the perfumes is very evident and all three (of Chapter 1) smell lovely.
I have had quite a few sprays over the last week or so and it totally captures the spirit of French perfume with an exotic Asian back story.
The listed notes are simply Green Tea, Saffron and Leather which sets a foundation but doesn't really give the whole story, that's down to you to discover I guess.
It's a mildly sweet and slightly familiar smell in the opening, delightful and gives the impression of a delicate perfume which it isn't. Nanyang is actually quite potent with excellent longevity, good projection and a lovely sillage.
I get some lovely florals with slight water nuances enhanced by a mystery citrus vibe which reacts with the tea to make it quite refreshing. As the perfume develops, a kind of suede like feel brings some texture to the perfume which is very welcomed and works exceptionally well. It also gives Nanyang a base which supports the perfume perfectly.
