J.U.S – A rebellious Project of New French Perfumers

The new French brand J.U.S introduced their fragrances first in Moscow, where I had the pleasure to smell them, and then at Esxence in Milan. J.U.S or, to be more precise, La Maison J.U.S, is an abbreviation for "Joyau Unique Sensoriel" (Unique Sensory Jewel), and it also sounds like jus ('juice' in French), which is informally used for 'perfume concentrate.' We met the brand's creators, one ... Read full article: J.U.S – A rebellious Project of New French Perfumers from Fragrantica Perfume...

Masque Milano: New Releases of Love, Scars, and Flowers

They are also a Milan-centered venture, and so when you come to Esxence, you’re being welcomed into their home. What’s particularly warm and friendly about Masque Milano is th...

Widian Realm: Novelties Presented in Milan

Perfumes: The Guide 2018 by Luca Turin and Tanya Sanchez

    The 27th of June 2018 was made a bit brighter and more smelling with just one tweet from Luca Turin who reported about the publication we've been awaiting for years. I remember that he told me at Esxence that they were thinking about a new guide that will be devoted to the niche and indie segment of the perfume industry – and now the book is ready.

Nejma's Newest Stars: Le Sublime and Koeptys

  I spent nearly an hour talking to the wonderful women of Nejma while I was at Esxence this year - And how can you not be drawn to these regal, monolithic dark bottles, paired with a line of equally fascinating bottles in sparkling white? Nejma is a luxury brand of perfumes that has a discernible quality of accessibility - I truly felt close to all these fragrances. Was it perhaps the story of...

ESXENCE 2018: Blackbird Y06-S - Perfume Goes Bananas!

  This year the coolest booth in Esxence was, undoubtedly, the American indie brand Blackbird. After so many people told me “oh, you should visit Blackbird, you will love it,” and after two days of trying and not getting even close because of so many people visiting the booth, on the third day of the show I went there first thing in the morning as my personal mission.

Esxence 2018: Amouroud Oud Tabac - Warm and Smooth

  The quest for finding all the facets of oud is still producing good results for the house of Amouroud, as we've seen in Esxence with the new edition Oud Tabac. Indeed, oud is still such a fascinating material, and such a multifaceted olfactory profile, that you can try to push every single facet to the extreme, creating something beautiful, and yet still new, after the trend is over.

Coquillete Tourbière - Boozy Almonds Delight

Out of all the new editions that Coquillete presented this year at Esxence, in their characteristic black square velvet bottles, one stood out to my nose. It's called Tourbière and if you like the smell of almonds, this one is for you. And for me. It was 4 or 5 years ago, I think, when I first smelled the perfumes from Coquillete. I remember I fell in love with the sweet, oily and fun sme... Read full article: Coquillete Tourbière - Boozy Almonds Delight from Fragrantica Perfumes and Co...

Where How Italian Perfumes Are Made

At Esxence in Milan, I talked with Andrea Casotti about his perfume brand (The House of Oud), and got invited to visit one of a few fast developing perfume enterprises, Creative Flavours Fragrances SpA. CFF is known among perfume fans as a creative and production force behind brands like Moresque and The House of Oud, but Andrea Casotti (who is its CEO) told me that they produce perfumes for man...

Mendittorosa Rituale: Liquid Gold for the Gods

One of the best perfumes launched at Esxence this year was Rituale, from the Italian house of Mendittorosa. I am not the only one to say this. Elena Knezhevic also thinks that as you can read in our Best Perfumes from Esxence article. Mendittorosa presented two new fragrances this year: Archetipo (signed by perfumer Luca Maffei) and Rituale (created by perfumer Amélie Bourgeois). Rituale imme...

Chypress Floris: Joyful Simple Pleasures

  Besides many different types of bright and unusual fragrances we encountered and tried at Esxence,  there were also editions of brands that live their own slow and calm life. One of those was the British house Floris. Enchanted by blooming Milan, The Mall was overflowing with flower bouquets — and Floris' booth was no exception. A beautiful bouquet separated the brand's novelty, C...

Esxence 2017: New Gourmands

  We've already discussed the main trends of the last Milano exhibition here and here; this year's Esxence became a place where big market trends met smaller ones, and brands started to experiment with ingredients, presenting new types of packaging and so on. Among other topics, the interest in the 'edible' family was more than noticeable - hence, let us take a look at that too. Th...

ESXENCE 2017: The Garden of Orientals

  During last year`s Esxence in 2016, I was dumfounded to see so many Oriental brands, and it was very obvious that they were going to be a delightful part of the Esxence "family" in the future. This year's situation was pretty much the same, except the trend is changing, so there is less oud and more orientals that most of us would find non-typically Arabic. Many brands from the Mid...

Hot News from Esxence: What's New on the Market

In my opinion, Esxence is the best event for discovering what's in the near future within the niche perfumery industry. It is the opportunity where most brands decide to show what they have been working on. But not always does what we see in the show correspond to the products we will immediately see on the market. I start this report with some brands from whom we've already seen and smelled excit... Read full article: Hot News from Esxence: What's New on the Market from Fragrantica Perfumes an...
