LYRD by Avon: New Cherry Vetiver and Santal Musk

The LYRD line (Layers Redefined) was started in July 2020 with the fragrance Sparkling Neroli. Here is my review of that simple, elegant, and casual fragrance. A pair of "Artisan" fragrances have joined the LYRD line in 2020. They are introduced as unisex and based on a combination of two main accords. One offers a more conventional pair (Santal Musk); the other is unusual and obviously aimed... Read full article: LYRD by Avon: New Cherry Vetiver and Santal Musk from Fragrantica Perfumes and Co...

Byredo Tobacco Mandarin and Lil Fleur Review

A joint review of two of Byredo’s newest scents (Tobacco Mandarin and Lil Fleur) made sense as they very much carry the same, back-to-roots sensibility that the brand has been losing over the last few years, putting forward challenging, polarizing profiles that firmly sit within a niche aesthetic. The difference from the company’s early years is that these new products, in contrast to their ...

Amouage Releases Interlude 53 in Extrait de Parfum Concentration

The original Interlude Man by Amouage without a doubt has taken on a legendary status. It was inspired by chaos and disorder, but its spicy and woody nature, created by perfumer Pierre Negrin in 2012, masqueraded an interlude moment of harmony in its heart. In 2020, Interlude Man Black Iris added new colours to the palette to smooth the facets of the original creation. "A complex interplay ...

Ghost of Christmas Past: Denim Original, Denim Musk, Denim Black

There are a lot of things I dislike about Christmas, but when I was a teenager, there was one in particular that I dreaded most of all...To get those Denim bottles I got every year as presents. I mean, several relatives would have the same idea every year: To offer a bottle of Denim, whether it was Original, Black, Musk, or whatever. It was instant disappointment for me, and the boxes would accumu... Read full article: Ghost of Christmas Past: Denim Original, Denim Musk, Denim Black from Fragra...

Hand Sanitizers with Fragrance from Molton Brown

It is no secret that fine fragrance has struggled since the start of the pandemic. With many stores closed, consumers fearful of touching bottles and far fewer occasions that would traditionally stimulate perfume-wearing (such as dates, professional meetings or time with family,) the global beauty industry was burdened with early predictions that revenues would fall 20 to 30% this year from pre-...

Opus II The Library Collection Amouage Review

Opus II appeared as one of the first three scent tomes in The Library Collection Amouage, which debuted in 2010. As Christopher Chong, then the art director of the perfume house, said at the time, the collection was created as a timeless collection of olfactory impressions, to ignore all modern perfume trends. The collection could contain an infinity of plots, but in eight years only eleven numbe... Read full article: Opus II The Library Collection Amouage Review from Fragrantica Perfumes and ...

Ray-Flection Masque Milano Review

I don't really believe that perfume brands follow any trends, but still, certain waves of popular themes can be noticed. A couple of years ago, you could see a lot of rose-themed scents, last year - jasmine and tuberose, and 2020 seems to be a fruitful year for mimosa.   Judge for yourself: this year Mimosa Tanneron Perris Monte Carlo, Heures d’Absence Louis Vuitton and The Favorite Penhaligon...

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...
