What Does “Healthy” Smell Like in 2020?

Just like the aesthetic of "fresh" or "natural" (in food or fragrance) changes in line with society’s values, the (olfactory) face of "healthy" also pivots alongside cultural priority. When we speak of healthy today we are generally referring to a holistic form of health that aligns body, mind and emotions under the aspirations of feeling good, lacking deficiency and attaining balance (concep...

Musk Deer Zoologist Review

Musk Deer by Zoologist belongs to the forest, just as it's supposed to. I've had a hard time wrapping my head around the idea behind it, trying to put together the brief Victor sent to the perfumer, the scent, and my own impressions of musk. Victor's vision of the scent is expressed in this picture: As Victor told me, he wanted an environmental scent of the supposed musk deer, with some of its m...

Giorgio Beverly Hills - Sunshine in a Bottle

Yes, you read this right. Although I had smelled Giorgio Beverly Hills a couple times before, only now did I decided to purchase a full bottle of this classic American scent. I must say I am surprised and in love. White flowers, nail polish, sunscreen, aldehydes, plastic and smiles: That's what this perfume smells like to me. In an era when suddenly the words “beast mode” seem to constantly... Read full article: Giorgio Beverly Hills - Sunshine in a Bottle from Fragrantica Perfumes and Cologn...

Messy Sexy Just Rolled Out Of Bed - A Lab On Fire

For a long time, I followed the work of the American brand A Lab on Fire, trying to understand what this brand, which grew out of "the smallest perfume brand in the world" (self-designation of the New York brand S-Perfume) and eventually moved from New-York to warm Los Angeles, reminds me of. Not so long ago, I realized that it could be called an inexpensive junior line of Frederic Malle: celebr...

Jorum Studio Athenaeum: A Review + Worldwide Giveaway!

Ah, Scotland. A land of inestimable and wild beauty: peaty bogs, craggy hills scattered with heather, crumbling castles, mournful bagpipe music by men in woolen kilts, and haggis. New Athenaeum by Jorum Studio smells just like that (minus the haggis).  It’s lofty and airy like the skies over Scotland, while being dense and earthy at the same time. A dry lavender and a vegetal fennel are�...

Eau de Bookstore Bibliosmia: The Comforting Scent of Books

"There is no future for e-books, because they are not books. E-books smell like burned fuel." So said Ray Bradbury, author of the nightmare dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 about a world where books are burned, dismissing the long-term future of electronic books. Sales of traditional books have certainly not fallen far behind those of electronic books, on the contrary, which means something. On that...

Ecusson: The First Perfume by Jean d'Albret

The perfume history of the perfume Ecusson began in 1947, when the crowned bottles first appeared in France. The perfume house Jean d'Albret was named after Jean d'Albret, King of Navarre (1469-1516). However, the advertisers for Ecusson told the story that this fragrance was presented to Jeanne d'Albret, Queen of Navarre, Jean's granddaughter, in 1570 - and since then the recipe has been care...

Aftelier Perfumes Releases Violet Ambrosia

Aftelier Perfumes is releasing a new perfume for 2020, Violet Ambrosia. It is an exploration of two central notes: a violet accord paired with a particularly rare batch of broom flower (also known as genêt.) This small, yellow, ethereal flower has a distinctly honey-scented aura, which perfumer Mandy Aftel has paired with other key botanical ingredients to complete the setting. "The soft violet...

The Unmissable Porter Sa Peau from Roberto Greco

It would seem that in order to release a new scent, photographer and brand owner Roberto Greco must first ensure that there is at least one dialed-up aspect of the fragrance. It's like one part needs to shout boldly while the rest of the composition works to reign it in and converse with it. With Porter Sa Peau, Greco's second release after the memorable Oeilleres, that most present note has got t...

Or Black Pascal Morabito: Black Gold Stability

Tete A 360 Artwork, Pascal Morabito, 2001 If you have been interested in perfumes for some time, then you certainly have come across the common opinion "the new version of the X fragrance is worthless, but its first release was the real thing!"

Epicene Gamma IFF: The Common Part of Spicy Men's Colognes of the 1980s?

When it comes to perfume bases, people most often think of De Laire and its excellent perfume base, Mousse de Saxe (Nuit de Noel Caron, Habanita Molinard, Mitsouko Guerlain). Not so long ago, we recalled De Laire perfume bases, both old classic Bouvardia, Ambre 83, Prunol, and completely new ones, developed in recent years and presented by Symrise at the World Perfume Congress 2018.   DeLai...

Narciso Rodriguez 2020: For Him, For Her… And Some Milk Chocolate to Boot!

I have a difficult relationship with Narciso Rodriguez perfumes. I do admit that the first fragrances from Narciso Rodriguez were a veritable phenomenon in the world of perfumery. I also agree that, for years, Narciso Rodriguez has clearly and consistently continued with his main theme, turning just slightly either in the direction of a warm, sweaty, 'under-the-sheets' musk or in the ...

Fall Scents For Men That Aren’t Sweet

Do you ever feel oppressed by sweetness in perfumery – that you can’t escape sugar when sniffing out your next scent? A lot of our readers communicate similar sentiments, expressing discontent and disappointment that it is so rare to find fragrances (both in the men’s and women’s aisles) that do not possess dominating sugary accords. In many ways there is a parallel with the pre-wellness f... Read full article: Fall Scents For Men That Aren’t Sweet from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magazin...

A New Campaign for Somaliland: FFS (For Frånk’s Sake)

After visiting Somliland last year, Perfumer Simon Constantine formulated Frånk, a fragrance that utilizes Somaliland frankincense. This fine fragrance supports directly through trade those communities whose lives depend upon frankincense. Constantine felt that this wasn’t enough and so has committed to donating twenty percent of ånd fragrance’s total Christmas sales to support fra...

While 2020 has brought a lot of nail-biting for all of us, there had to have been at least a few things that happened this year that ended up pretty great, right?
