"Strangelove as a brand is what a true niche really is, I don’t like to use that word anymore as it’s so overused in this market that it became more like a trend and lost its true meaning.I was advised to sample lostinflowers and to not blind buy it, so when they had an offer in November decided to blind buy meltmyheart instead. However, after receiving a sample of lostinflowers I was literally rendered speechless it was so different and yet so beautiful. I kept thinking to myself how have they managed to create something so delicate and yet so powerful at the same time. It has some challenging notes to me such as tagete (marigold) and oud, it’s also metallic and a little medicinal. And yet I don’t mind it at all as what’s luring beneath t’s the most realistic white indolic floral bouquet. To me this scent is magical and one of the best discoveries in my fragrant journey.
It was a gift to me from my mama and I would like to mention that I received it in two days all the from from NY to have it in time for Christmas. The service and personal care I received from the brand’s founder Elizabeth is simply outstanding. So I will repeat myself what I already mentioned in my stories, what I value about a brand is not just their scents, it’s also the people behind it. The service I received went above and beyond.
I don’t like the word masterpiece, but for lostinflowers it’s fitting. Very niche and modern and yet beautiful and timeless with an identity of its own."
"I am blown away at the sheer high quality of these fragrances. Eye opening and stimulating scents. Sexy (MeltMyHeart )and evocative (SilenceTheSea). I love these and look forward to buying at least one full bottle in time. Again, thank you kindly for your professional correspondence and personal touch. You’re a superstar in my eyes. I love what you are doing with your company. Keep up the amazing work. Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas."
"Don’t know whether to love you or hate you! It was Xmas in October getting that magnificent Strangelove package. I LOVE it. I am absolutely, and insanely hooked. And, I hate you because any other fragrance is useless - argh and I had just bought the extra big bottle of Carnal Flower.....you have created an absolutely goddess worthy scent. I just can’t find enough adjectives to describe it!!!
"Dear Elizabeth, what a delightful, sensual and enticing experience to smell your gorgeous perfumes! Your take on oud is heavenly! Such a depth and smoothness and joyfulness at the same time. Every fragrance tells us a unique story and I absolutely adore being part of it by wearing them."
"Let me tell you how much I love strangelove's lostinflowers: it was the ONLY perfume I chose to take with me to the Milan Exsence perfume expo last year. Surrounded by thousands of bottles of fine fragrance, Perfume Provocateur Christophe Laudamiel's extraordinary tribute to white florals garnered me so many compliments I stopped counting. I was wearing the perfume oil rather than the edp, and one drop of this potent concoction surrounds you in a “heaven-scent” mist of gardenia, champaca, and lily of the valley. Combining with the dusty straw-like element of marigold and the slightest skank and depth of oud, lostinflowers is an unforgettable and head-spinning magic carpet ride through a heavily-scented boudoir. Dazzling, hypnotic, and sexy as hell, lostinflowers is the sin qua non of white white floral perfumes."

“I received the order today when I came into work and I am truly blown away! I love both fragrances, and esp. deadofnight - I already know that it will become my new signature scent. I can't wait for the launch of silencethesea this summer! I am so excited and thrilled by this purchase. Thank you again.”
“I have purchased your deadofnight perfume before on a whim, and have fallen in love with the scent. I am very curious about your other scent, meltmyheart given my infatuation with oud and your intoxicating scent…”
“It's been a pleasure and honor meeting you and being introduced to your new niche company and line of fragrance which we both adored and sure that it will win a great success ... Many thanks to you and looking forward seeing you and rewarding myself buying more and more of your distinctive awesome fragrances…”
“The top notes provide me with an unfamiliar scent...it made me curiously continue to smell it in a positive way. I realize it was the violet leaf, which I am drawn to now. The heart, is extremely feminine with your jasmine and rose leading me to find this suitable for my fiancé. However, this quickly morphed into the incense, powdery scent of the base notes which I personally love on myself and on woman I find attractive. It has a mysterious and seductive aura. Your version is light enough to be worn during the day in summer and is still fitting for an evening out. It has been on my skin for 4 hours and it's lasting scent is absorbing. Usually i like my attars to last at least 8 hours. Yours with a lighter scent may not, but I am thoroughly enjoying it. An applause to you and your team, especially Christophe Laudamiel.”
“I have to say, since trying your deadofnight, I have yet to find ANY other oudh perfume that comes close to the complexity and allure of that scent…I have purchased your deadofnight perfume before on a whim, and have fallen in love with the scent…meltmyheart is wonderful and so complex - unlike anything else in my collection. And you're right.. it's a lot different from deadofnight as well! The night I met my boyfriend, I was wearing deadofnight. I can't wait to see what he says about this :) I'll be reordering when these 2 are empty.”
"Can’t wait to receive my deadofnight! I went fragrance shopping while I was there in NY and in my book, nothing could compare or beat it!! Please keep me informed of the new fragrances coming out. I’m really excited for them! Wishing you the best in all your endeavors!!"
"I just wanted to say that on a whim, I ordered deadofnight after reading a description in Lucky magazine. I knew I was taking a huge risk, ordering a perfume without even smelling it, but, after reading about it I had a strong hunch that it would be my new favorite, and I was SO RIGHT! I can't get enough of it, it is unlike anything else I have ever smelled, and I get unsolicited compliments on it ALL THE TIME! I almost hate to tell people what it is because I sort of want to keep the secret to myself, but on the other hand I love it too much not to share it with anyone and everyone who cares to know. I never ever write stuff like this, but the truth is that I never feel as strongly about a product as I do about this one. Thanks so so much!"
"I've always loved oud, just never on myself...your beautiful creation is glowing, translucent, luminous and addictive...I can't stop smelling my skin...I may look a bit weird the next few days!"
"I have been wearing your amazing oud everyday and have finally run out over the holiday weekend. It is so delicious and I get compliments constantly!I know how rare it is, but it’s truly become a staple for me!"
"Where can I get more deadofnight? I had a little sample and could not stop wearing it, so it's all used up! I love it and so does everyone who's smelled it on me. . . where do I send them all to get it?"
"Thank you! By the way... I love it!! It's unique and smells terrific. :)
Everyone compliments me on it :)"
"That is one very cool blend! I envisioned lining up all the ingredients single file on a forest floor and making it into a stick of dynamite and the scent boomed into a bonfire for the initial impression! Bam! Echoing oud off the trees and dirt! Eventually, the floracy climbed out the ground burning long and slow, fragrant embers crackling on the skin. Very nice! Beautiful work Christophe!"
"The other night I was at an art opening in London. I'd dabbed some deadofnight behind my ears before I went out. Hours later I had two people approach me in the gallery (a man and a woman - one a stranger!) to ask what I was wearing. They were so entranced by the smell. :)"
