Madison Perfumery


(EN)I feel naked if I go out without sprinkling perfume at least a bit. I don't know if it's just a habit or i need to smell something nice around myself. Some people know exactly what their favourite scent is and they can even say the name and brand of the perfume they like most. I'm not that kind of person. I have several bottles of perfumes in my bathroom shelves and choosing the right one depends on the mood. My favourite scents are green and floral, but I can't say what is my favourite perfume. This morning I had a couple of spritzes of Jo Malone's limited edition White Lilac & Rhubarb.

There's an absolutely gorgeous perfumery on Andrássy út in Budapest. The place is called Madison Perfumery. There used to be an old pharmacy and that's why there're still beautiful old details in the premises, for example a gorgeous wooden staircase. 

The selection of perfumes at Madison Perfumery is pretty impressive, and most of the fragrances are available in Hungary only there. If you need any help for choosing your scent, ask for Máté. He knows everything about perfumes!

PS. This is also the only place in Hungary where the lovely products of Australian brand Aesop are sold!

(FI) Jos menen ulos ilman että suihkautan hajuvettä, tuntuu kuin astuisin ovesta ulos nakuna. En tiedä onko kyseessä opittu tapa vai kaipaanko vaan yksinkertaisesti miellyttävää tuoksupilveä ympärilläni. Jotkut ihmiset tietävät täsmälleen mikä on heidän lempparituoksunsa nimeä ja brändiä myöten. Itse en kuulu siihen ihmisryhmään. Kylppärini hyllyiltä löytyy useampi pullo hajuvesiä ja valitsen sieltä tuoksun ihan vaan mielialan mukaan. Lemppareitani ovat vihreät ja kukkaistuoksut. En kuitenkaan pysty sanomaan mikä niistä olisi ehdoton suosikkini. Tänään aamulla pirskautin Jo Malonen muutaman vuoden takaista kausituoksua valkoisista sireeneistä ja raparperista tehtyä kausituoksua White Lilac & Rhubarb.

Andrássy útilla Budapestissa on aivan uskomattoman upea parfyymikauppa nimeltään Madison Perfumery. Tässä liikehuoneistossa toimi ennen vanha apteekki ja tästä syystä siellä vieläkin on paljon vanhoja yksityiskohtia kuten upea puuportaikko.

Madison Perfumeryn tuoksuvalikoima on melko vaikuttava. Monet näistä tuoksuista on saatavilla Unkarissa ainoastaan täältä. Jos tarvitset apua hajuveden valinnassa, kysy Máté'a!  Hän tietää kaiken parfyymeistä!

PS.Tämä on myös ainoa paikka Unkarissa, jossa myydään australialaisen Aesop'n ihania tuotteita! 





































(EN)A bit of luxury is exactly what we need for the coming autumn, isn't it?

(FI)Ripaus luksusta syksyyn ei ole pahitteeksi, vai mitä?

  1. Tiina, I am so not a perfume person. I think it started when I worked with horses, I probably needed it more than ever then, but the foals didn't like it. Now I have three bottles and if I use them 3 times a year, it's a good year!

  7. I normally just stick to one perfume and never try anything else unless I am captivated by the smell. I love having just one which people will recognize you for. I definitely cannot go out without putting some perfume on.

    1. I was a sort of addicted to Jo Malone's scents and always bought the new ones straight away.

  12. I am the same way, perfume depends on my mood, and what I am planning on doing, not a preset selection. It is fun to try out new scents, and I think I would have a blast in that store. Blessings!
