Your late summer pick-me-up is here!
You’ve been wearing your lighter-weight perfumes for a while now-
and you’re ready for something different.
We present you with a wide range of families, notes and moods.
The Les Cocottes de Paris trio is the new chapter by Anaïs Beguine (of Jardins d’Écrivains).
The perfumes tell the memorable stories of three nineteenth-century French courtesans:
La Castiglione‘s combination of notes is utterly unique, ranging from citron and mugwort to licorice, myrrh and styrax. A ride to the fascinating darker side…
Melle Cléo is an unusual floral for those who prefer no sweetness. It is fresh and delicate in a substantial sort of way.
La Belle Otero opens with a sweet neroli/fig tempered by the spice of pepper/ginger. Violet and a dry iris evolve into a woody dry down. Its progression is captivating.
Framboise Noire by Shay and Blue made its debut this week. With notes of black raspberry, Iris pallida, white oud and dark woods- all perfectly balanced to prevent it from becoming too sweet or fruity. Darkly noir.
Jul et Mad‘s new trilogy of perfume extraits, Les White, continues their line of modern, refined fragrances using the best of ingredients. Madeleine and Julien enlisted the assistance of award-winning Luca Maffei to create Néa and Garuda. Nine-Shar’s nose is Sidonie Lancesseur.
Garuda is as smooth as metal, as warm as saffron and as exquisite as the Cambodian oud in its heart. Its fruit and spice opening combination leads to an oud accord that is modulated by saffron and rum. Its base of smooth and comforting woods extends its silky warmth.
Nin-Shar opens with a rich bergamot + rose liquor blend. Turkish rose and Egyptian jasmine become evident in the heart, continuing the display of the rose’s soft, floral petals to the green leaves, steam and thorns, and all the way to the roots with the earthy, woody base of oud, cedar wood and sandalwood.
Néa is composed around a gourmand accord with rich oriental influences. A beautiful fruit combination of date, pomegranate and plum opens the scent, eventually accented by rose and jasmine. It progresses through a woody dry down, finishing with its gourmand vanilla/benzoin/tonka bean flourish.
