Pyrit Ana Tra Olivier Durbano: Fire in Grasse

  The name of the new fragrance, Pyrit Ana Tra, by Olivier Durbano surprised me from the moment I first read it. If pyrite (Greek πυρίτης λίθος, literally "a stone that makes fire") or FeS2 with cubic yellow crystals is well known to me as "fool's gold," (pyrite is usually used in tourist places of the gold rushes of the past, where you can pan for gold for 5 bucks), then the othe...

Introducing Izzy Bizu, The Coolest Girl With A Beauty Contract

When you think of famous French perfumes, you probably see bottles of Miss Dior and Chanel No. 5 floating in a rose field in Grasse (or is that just us?).

Fragonard... not the painter

There is a Fragonard Museum in Paris. It has actually nothing to do with the painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806) - nor with his wife or sons, also excellent artists - except that Eugène Fuchs, who in 1926 founded the “Fragonard Perfumer”   company in Grasse in the south of France, the “capital of perfume”, was an admirer of the painter, who was born in Grasse. “Fragonard” has thus production in Grasse, but also in the village of Eze (see previous post), still on the French Riviera. In ...

Refillable Beauty Products Will Help Save The Planet — & Your Money

While trying to make my beauty routine plastic-free, there was one thing I picked up on pretty quickly: Refillable was better than recyclable. Of course, recyclable packaging is certainly preferable to throwaway plastic, but it’s even better if you can avoid waste altogether by using products that can be refilled.In terms of sustainability, recycling is problematic. Due to the long lifespan of plastics, including those designed to be recyclable, disposing of them is difficult, and can often pla...

Etat Libre d’Orange Is Making a Luxury Perfume out of Trash and Worms

Grasse, the cradle of perfuming in France, has done an impressive job of associating perfume with refinement. When you think of luxury scents, it's easy to imagine fragrant fields of flowers or the elegant crushing of petals. The best-known perfume brands build on that romance. Consider Guerlain's ultra-lavish "The Legend of Shalimar" from 2013, Dior's...

Writing for the smell of it

Earlier this week, I wrote about how literature transforms text into voice and experience — the word made flesh, basically. But the examples I used of “experience” focused, as such discussions often do, on the image: in other words, vision. And it should be obvious that embodied experience is much richer than that. Experience is tactile and spatial, mental and auditory. It’s not photography; it has a taste and a temperature. Smell might be the most ineffable feature of animal life. Words and...
