Prada Luna Rossa Ocean

Prada's collection of Luna Rossa masculine perfumes are named after the sailing boat and the "Red Moon" team, which participate in the competitions for the America's Cup. The fragrances of this line draw their inspiration from the world of extreme sailing, prestige, marine nature, and a passion for innovation and victory.

Revisiting Avon Black Suede

Growing up, the most expensive fragrances I had access to were from Avon, and there was one I repeatedly had as a Christmas gift: Black Suede. I think I was too young to fully appreciate it, but it sure left its marks. This year I decided to revisit it. I was unsure if I would get the same smell I used to get when I was younger — let's say in the late '80s/early '90s — but despite the b...

Pear Inc. Review: Boring Flavour, Captivating Texture

In the world of gastronomy, it is common for chefs and critics to separately evaluate a food’s flavour and its technical components, which include texture, consistency, mouthfeel, colour, presentation, temperature, aftertaste, etc. For example, an ice cream that has not set may still taste incredible (it could be the best tasting chocolate you’ve ever had, complete with unbeknownst fruitiness,...

From Father to Son: Cuir de Russie Le Jardin Retrouve

One of the first niche perfume houses in France and in the world, Le Jardin Retrouve was founded by Yuri Gutsatz, who worked for more than 30 years as a perfumer at Roure-Givaudan and was a vice-president of the French Perfumers Society and one of the founders of the Osmothèque. He outlined his position in the manifesto "Perfumer, your name is nobody!" and, having gained independence, he acquir...

The Enduring Appeal of Davidoff Cool Water

I first smelt Davidoff Cool Water about 2005 or 2006 and, like most other teenagers of my generation, considered it representative of objectively pleasing olfaction. It was inarguably fresh, diffusive, and distinctive. I’d pick it up in club bathrooms and shower myself; it never failed to regenerate my spirits for another round of dancing. I bought my first and only bottle in 2011 and wore it as... Read full article: The Enduring Appeal of Davidoff Cool Water from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colog...

Underrated Fragrances (2021)

Appreciating a fragrance is a complex affair. The fragrances most talked about in perfume fora and blogs, or even reviewed on youtube channels, are not necessarily the most popular, or the most worn. In more intellectualized venues the bet is showing appreciation that reflects favorably on the reviewer, so the most critically-acclaimed, historical, or edgy fragrances take center stage and the ...

Perfumed Horoscope: June 21 - June 27

  The stern Full Moon in Capricorn (24th) is in astrology related to sudden and deep realizations about one’s “destiny." You may find yourself back on track in a divine plan. If this is not what you chose, the universe will hand you what is best for you. As we enter the week with a lot of high hopes, a backlash could come from lower vibrations like jealousy, envy, and possessiveness. ...

Toxic Rose and Black Cat from Montale

It has been a long time since I was acquainted with Montale. Some of the Montale perfumes that I once loved and owned are no longer available, others have kept their name but were drastically changed. Every year, the brand launches many perfumes, which are different, but, nevertheless, of the same style – unreasonably musky, passionately spicy, or gourmand beyond measure. Sometimes, I manage to ... Read full article: Toxic Rose and Black Cat from Montale from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes M...

Yohji Yamamoto Unravel 07/14 and 21/38

Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto introduces the new perfume duo Unravel. Usually, a perfume gets its final, commercial name when the work is done, but the Yohji Yamamoto team decided differently – they've kept the first working names of two of their new perfumes, feminine Unravel 07/14 and masculine Unravel 21/38.   "UNRAVEL is about searching and finding. Exploring and trying out endle...

VIII ROCOCO MAGNOLIA by Clive Christian: A Seductively Indecent Chypre

I have never trusted brands that adorned their flacons with crowns. In my opinion, there are only two grounds for one to do so, namely: 1) if the country of origin has a current monarchy and the brand an official grant (i.e., you have a 'purveyor of the royal court' patent or personal involvement in one of the royals' charitable causes); 2) in case you are a fantasy-themed brand that builds t...

The Epic Beauty of Clive Christian’s X For Men

The praise ladled onto X For Men from Fragrantica reviewers is quite remarkable. If you read through some of them, you’ll find mentions of perfection, divinity and “beautiful … beyond words” (Marco Chau). Out of the thousands of fragrances I’ve smelt in my life so far, X For Men sticks out amongst the most memorable and impactful for its pitch-perfect rendition of olfactory warmth and ri...

Chevalier De La Nuit by Parfums Ciro: Patchouli of the Night

Perfume house Parfums Ciro was founded in New York in 1921 by Jacob Widhopf, an American with German roots. Ciro's fragrances were hugely popular in the United States and still attract many vintage flacons collectors - J. Viard's designs and Baccarat's crystal make Ciro bottles a welcomed treasure in any collection. Names like New Horizons, Surrender, Danger, Ricochet, Chevalier De La Nuit are mus...

Reset: A New Collection by Pekji

Why do we love independent perfumers? They don't have launch plans for the year ahead like luxury brands do. Even niche companies lately know very well that they are expected to release one or several fragrances a year (earlier - for the exhibitions, now - just to stay in sight of their fans). But independent perfumers are a special group. They can spend years improving their fragrances, completi...

CUPUAÇÚ: Sweet Fruits That Taste Like Honey

The legends that revolve around cupuaçu come from different indigenous ethnic groups, with a gigantic amount of information that diverges on some points and converges in many others. Some say that the tree was given to all indigenous people as a way to alleviate the bitter pains of battles, pests, and hunger; others say that Tupã, when creating the world, introduced cupuaçu to the earth so t...

Dolce Gabbana K EdT vs. EdP

I remain surprised at how such an easily likeable a composition as Dolce Gabbana’s K (Eau de Toilette) from 2019 can split audiences to such degrees. Many, like myself, praise the creamy geranium-sage heart — so rounded and lactonic it suggests ylang-ylang or gardenia — that infuses the classic “blue” DNA (citrus, lavender, driftwoods) around it with a sweet, gauzy smoothness. Othe... Read full article: Dolce Gabbana K EdT vs. EdP from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Magazine.

"Eccentric: odd, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, abnormal, irregular, uncommon, quirky, unconventional, outlandish, whimsical, singular, off-the-wall, etc." – Collins dictionary Once upon a time, many years ago, I believed that new fragrances have a right to life only if they are special, non-mainstream, and unconventional.

Topsy-Turvy: When Your Opinion of a Perfume Changes Completely

Our sense of smell is inextricably connected to breathing — in order to experience a scent, we need to take a breath. We breathe constantly, so our olfactory Rolodex is expanding and being edited throughout our entire lives. It is an important part of our image recognition system: Once we try strawberries as children, for instance, we have its aromatic profile saved in our head with the cor...
