My name is Iva.
I write about perfumes that express unique olfactive beauty, manifest integrity as individual expressions of art, catch my attention, tickle my imagination, challenge my senses or the way I tend to think.
The reviews are the results of multiple testings and all-day wear.
"Whiffs", mostly my first impressions, are based on less experience - that's why they are called that way.
Neither my real fragrance shelf nor this Scented Shelf / my blog could have existed or functioned without positive, sensitive, friendly and in every sense beautiful perfume lovers, colleagues and friends who are generously willing to share their experiences, samples and photographs out of the pure love which we share. You will recognize some of them in disclosures. I can not highlight my deepest gratitude and love brightly enough.
