Lovely review of RM Signature fragrance in the Absolutely South East magazine

17/10/2014


I love the description of my signature RM fragrance in the December issue of the Absolutely South East magazine:

"Ruth Mastenbroek's signature fragrance is the string of pearls in the fragrance world; perfect with a shirt and jeans, little back dress or full-on red carpet frock. This elegant chypre is both wonderfully wearable and highly individual. It glides gracefully from day into evening".

I couldn't agree more!

Review of Amorosa by Suzy Nightingale

17/09/2013


In her excellent perfume blog, Suzy reviews RM's Amorosa fragrance. Here's a piece:

"Amorosa manages to satisfy the cravings of those seeking lighthearted fruity freshness, the romantic floral-lovers and those olfactory hedonists who like to grab a little bit of everything from the fragrance buffet. Here we are given a perfume full of fresh, uplifting notes that bubble to surface like a sudden peal of laughter, heart notes of heady florals that blossom gloriously on the skin without overpowering the more delicate sprays of white flowers, and luscious fruits laden with juice that trickles finally into the gently spiced woodsy base that holds it together: a difficult balancing act to pull off, Amorosa showcases a skilled perfumer at the top of her game."

22/08/2013


A good chypre is hard to find nowadays but Ruth Mastenbroek has masterfully created a modern twist on the genre that respects the traditions of the genre but also goes a long way to conquer new ground. The innovative use of unconventional ingredients such as watermelon and tuberose are what make Amorosa so interesting and firmly place Ruth Mastenbroek as a talent to watch.

A dark fragrance has complexity, depth and mystery. Think sensual animal notes of musks, ambers, exotic woods like patchouli and vetivert. These notes allow us to feel strong.Read more...
