Nuxe Prodigieus Floral Le Parfum

  The French house Nuxe presents a flanker of Prodigieux Le Parfum (2012), a creation composed by perfumer Serge Majoullier in which he combined creamy white flowers with an irresistible coconut milk accord, vanilla, and juicy citruses. In 2018, Nuxe offered the Prodigieux Absolu de Parfum edition, combining the warmth of vanilla and tonka beans with tropical Tiare blooms.   The 2021 ed...

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.

Your Bizarre Friend: Excentrique Moi Art de Parfum

"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...

Kenzo Homme Eau de Toilette Intense

  There are many of us who worship the iconic Kenzo Pour Homme creation from 1991 by Christian Mathieu and wear it with pleasure until today. Honestly, it is one of my favorite fragrances from that time, and I am sure it will be a real challenge to make something that will surpass this unique sea scent that intoxicates with its splashy sea aromas, its woody texture touched by aromatic herbs, ...

Two Minutes After The Kiss: Azman's Debut Fragrance

The more we live, the more we know that life is all about special moments, and the more moments like these we collect, the more fulfilled we feel. Fragrance is also a moment in time; something to be experienced within the limits of time and space. Having this idea in mind, Husen Khan launched his own perfume brand in 2016, called Azman. In Arabic, the word Azman means Hours, or Moments. Azman's ... Read full article: Two Minutes After The Kiss: Azman's Debut Fragrance from Fragrantica Perfumes...

Guy Fox's Scents From California and its Latest: Preston

Guy Fox is a relatively new fragrance brand, brought into being by creative entrepreneurs from California who saw an opportunity where there was something lacking. To them, the fragrance world had a level of inaccessibility; too many middle men, too much marketing speak, and an unnecessary wall between them and other people who want to smell good. Liam Eriksson (CEO) and Grant Pearce (CMO) are two... Read full article: Guy Fox's Scents From California and its Latest: Preston from Fragrantica Pe...
