Landscape Scents by Bravanariz Natural Perfumes

Landscape Scents by Bravanariz

The term “natural” has been commonly used to mean “organic” and “genuine” and even “real.” However, true natural things are those that are in their original formation, untouched, and living unbiased and uncompromised.

A compelling alternative to traditional perfumes is a brand named Bravanariz. They offer three all natural “Landscape Scents” from the region of Emporda in Spain.

The scents are derived from gathering and harvesting actual plants, then distilling them, and having the formulation rest for 20 days. Finally, the captured oils, called Olfactory Captures, are bottled.

The three scents are:


A summer capture that is characterized as “dry and cool, soft and rugged.” It incorporates the salty, sea-line coast with intense plants during a warm summer.


The feeling of spring invokes fresh beginnings and revitalization of positivity. Named after a regional river, MUGA is the Landscape Scent that harvests rosemary, cypress, chamomile, and lavender.


BOSC is a winter scent that is a balance of silent calm and invigorating enchantment. Think woods and mountains, and the shelter they will provide. Juniper, oakmoss, and pine.

Each of the three Landscape Scents is Bravanariz’s interpretation of mountains, plains, and seacoasts—the 3 most characteristic landscapes of the Emporda region, according to the brand.


Each of the bottles is available in one size, 50mL (1.7 oz) that look similar to nail polish or an essential oil bottle. Simplistically designed, but functionally useable.

Packaging and colors

The boxes with each coordinating scent feature earthy depictions…a bright blue ocean in summer, spring’s lush greenery, and the changing forest of winter.


Unlike most fragrances, they are not rated as Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, or Eau de Cologne because they are not. Remember, these are not perfumes, but rather they are 100% natural oil essences.

Where to find them?

By viewing their website,, you can order any or all of the Landscape Scents, or you can order a discovery pack containing three 10mL sample sizes.

Additionally, they offer an Explorer Kit to do your own harvesting of your own scents near home without making the trip to Spain.

Because the Landscape Scents do not contain “synthetic fixers,” they do not predetermine masculinity or femininity.

They change with body chemistry and coexist with one’s personal natural oils. In essence, they become one’s personal landscape.

Truly an innovative approach to incorporating nature’s natural landscape with our own earthly existence, we can bond with the environment in a new way. Is this something you have tried or are willing to sample? Let The Perfume Times know. We would love to hear your feedback!

Joy perfume by Dior

Joy by Christian Dior

Some of the oldest and most well-known fragrances houses are Guerlain, Creed, Coty and Jean Patou. Arguably, other main influencers are Yves St. Laurent, Lagerfeld, Chanel, Gucci, Versace and even Armani. Yet one of the best and most respected houses is Christian Dior Parfums.

After owning an art gallery, then working for fashion designer Robert Piguet, later serving in the military, and returning to fashion in 1942, Christian Dior took to the French fashion industry by introducing a new label of his namesake in 1947. It was in that year, he launched Miss Dior, an Eau de Parfum, which was named after his sister, Catherine. Since 1947, there have been 224 other fragrances, including Dolce Vita (1994), Dior Addict (2002), and Poison (1985) by Christian Dior Parfums.

Amazingly, the last women’s iconic fragrance series to launch was J’dore in 1999. Nearly 20 years later now, and Christian Dior Parfums has introduced Joy. Francois Demachy, Dior’s in-house perfumer, describes Joy as the

“Remarkable feeling of joy by offering an olfactive interpretation of light,” – Francois Demachy

according to Dior’s website.

Joy Review


For those of you familiar with Dior’s most recent men’s fragrance, Sauvage (launched in 2015), the same bottle is used for Joy, except it’s pink and clear rather than smoke-grey and dark. The word “Dior” is within the “O” of Joy. Available in three sizes: 1 oz. (30mL), 1.7 oz. (50mL), and 3.0 oz. (90 mL).

Packaging and Colors

The box is mostly a crisp white of purity with the same silver logo on the bottle. Pink refers to being delicate and feminine, yet softly playful. Silver captures graceful elegance.


Eau de Parfum (EDP)


Joy opens with bergamot and mandarin fusing with delicate flowers. Rose Grasse and Jasmine are the heart notes, followed by the base notes of musk and creamy sandalwood.


The highly acclaimed actress, Jennifer Lawrence, has been chosen as the face of this new perfume. Her glamorous, elegant, and inspiring career is the perfect fit for Joy.

This is a very becoming scent because it’s certainly not as strong as other Dior perfumes. We love the simplicity of light and how it brings emotion to life. Think precious, delicate, feminine and powdery. It is not just the women’s version of men’s Sauvage (as some reviews have described, but instead, it’s evoking independence and self-evidence.
