Scent of Woods Pain et Chataigner When one thinks of bread, A staple meals in lots of nations the world over, one thinks of comforting heat, household gatherings, stomach filling suppers and serenity. Composed by Meabh McCurtin is a savory barely gourmand composition, evoking pricey childhood reminiscences of watching my grandmother bake bread each weekend, her arms coated in flour and a gentle savory aroma of bread within the air. For me, this can be a perfume not like some other, it feels private and centering, a present of time, standing nonetheless, perpetually to be savored. –Olya Bar, Editor.
Perfumer Marc Corticchiato modified my thoughts fully about leather-based as a dominant word in perfumery. Earlier than I got here throughout Parfum d’Empire Cuir Ottoman,I considered leather-based fragrances because the sort of rough-hewn, hide-and-woods colognes, the sort of butch splash-ons marketed by cowboys and soccer gamers. With its plush animalism and chilly florals, Cuir Ottoman made me a leather-based – and Parfum D’Empire – lover for all times. recognized: For me, this fragrance set the usual for contemporary floral leathers. –Lauryn Beer, Senior Editor

Two of my favourite folks in fragrance land are the proficient Cecile Zarokian and Francois Henin aka “The Ambassador of Uncommon Perfumes” for Jovoy Paris. When these two joined forces, the result’s the pure magic of Jovoy Paris Remember Me. The perfume was impressed by their journey to Qatar however tells a special private story. There’s a Russian Proverb, “The place there may be tea there may be hope.” Escaping the Soviet Union, my paternal grandfather was in a position to take his father’s Samovar with him to Ellis Island, earlier than settling in Brooklyn N.Y. Closing my eyes, I see him getting ready the mix of entire leaf tea and boiling water, as his ancestors had finished earlier than him. My grandfather made the tea very robust, so he would hand me a cup that had been ready with condensed milk, candy, with a sprinkling of cinnamon. The window was open and I may scent heady flowers from the yard mingling with creamy tea. Reminiscences. Bear in mind me. –Michelyn Camen, Editor-in-Chief
How fabulous is Paolo Terenzi’s Tiziano Terenzi’s Casanova? Mesmerizingly so. This romantic magnificence transports you again to Venice to on the Masked Ball. The dry spicy opening and powdery word result in a lightweight leather-based that slides proper up on you. The sensuality of the nice and cozy spices, musk, and cedarwood is gorgeous. No beast right here, the silage is easy as a talented lover. Produced in a small handcrafted batch yearly with every flacon marked with the 12 months of manufacturing, like classic wine. Such a compliment-getter. –Hernando Courtright, Sr. Occasion Contributor and Model Ambassador
Chris Maurice’s Xerjoff Alexandria II’s spicy mix of lavender, amber, cinnamon, lily of the valley and Oud steam is as polished and refined as the person who would put on it. This stately (however approachable) composition is the Polaris among the many brilliant stars of Xerjoff’s choices. –Michael Devine, Senior Contributor
Sora Dora Gladiator is a best choice for me as a result of it’s a celebratory perfume with notes of grapefruit, inexperienced apple, and pineapple. The temper enhancing properties of mint will immediately increase your spirits, and a dry down of Indonesian patchouli and Tahitian vetiver is earthy and lengthy lasting. This versatile and jubilant composition is strictly what I have to get the day began on the correct foot! –Steven Gavrielatos, Video Content material Contributor (Perfumers: Amelie Bourgeois, Anne-Sophie Behaghel, and Camille Chemardin).
Micallef Note Vanilee composed by Geoffrey Nejman and Jean-Claude Astier is a silky, gentle, heat vanilla soaked in rum embrace, adopted by probably the most staggering ambered vanilla with an beautiful occasional waft of jasmine. The heat on my pores and skin permits the ambery rum-soaked vanilla to take heart stage with solely a fast peek-a-boo look of the Citrus and Jasmine-Sandi Lundberg, Affiliate Contributor
Cherigan Fleurs de Tabac was initially supposed for males – but it surely possesses a a lot wider enchantment, on account of its sublimely smoky, leathery evocation of tobacco with out the precise presence of tobacco itself. Its mixture of vanillic components with vetiver creates the trompe-nez which seduces us with fluid sensuous ambiguity – emanating Parisian stylish at each flip. –Ida Meister, Deputy and Pure Fragrance Editor
MDCI Parfums Chypre Palatin by Bertrand Duchaufour is without doubt one of the most beautiful embodiments of chiaroscuro, which is the true spirit of basic chypres.

Etat Libre D’Orange Frustration by Mathilde Bijaoui is a fancy gourmand with a scrumptious darkish soul and a comfortable delicious coronary heart. Vanilla is the primary participant, surrounded by heat spices, resinous depths, and the decadently luxurious silk texture of an expert-level rum–infused chestnut puree dessert. Candy and comforting, Frustration seems like a heat, enveloping hug, held in probably the most lovely crimson bottle, with a puff of smoky darkness for a little bit of hazard and the wink of cumin to maintain issues sensuously subversive. –Nicoleta Tomsa, Senior Editor
Plume Impression Murmure d’Ete composed by Quentin Bisch is effusive and invigorating however on the similar time comforting. This scent seems like a pristine cloud surrounding me.

Cedar grounds the composition and tonka with sandalwood makes one soften on this radiant luminous scent. –Karl Topham, Senior Editor and U.Okay. Model Ambassador
Tuberose is my signature-flower and with Visiteur Cabaret Nocturne, Cecile Zarokian provides it the highlight. Spices crackle on my pores and skin, accompanied by a word of gin which provides a recent and fragrant contact. Sandalwood and tobacco quiet down this olfactory warmth and delay the pleasure for a lot of hours. Provocative… Flamboyant… Horny…-Emmanuelle Varron, Senior Editor and Paris Model Ambassador
Histoires de Parfums Fidelis is a real scented symphony that instantly transports me again to Dubai the place conventional Arabic tradition weaves its approach all through a worldwide society. Fidelis is not any extraordinary rose/oud scent. Its daring mix of espresso and saffron, resonate with the jammy rose together with amber and oud in such a harmonious method it’ll by no means be mistaken for one more. Fidelis is proof of perfumer Julien Rasquinet’s virtuosity and one which I’ll by no means be with out. –Rachel Watson, Senior Contributor
Let me inform you how a lot I really like Strangelove NYC’s LostInFlowers: it was the ONLY fragrance I selected to take with me to the Milan Esxence fragrance expo in 2018. Surrounded by hundreds of bottles of nice perfume, Fragrance Provocateur Christophe Laudamiel’s extraordinary tribute to white florals garnered me so many compliments I finished counting. One spray of it surrounds you in a “heaven-scent” mist of gardenia, champaca, and lily of the valley. Combining with the dusty straw-like aspect of marigold and the slightest skank and depth of oud, LostinFlowers is an unforgettable and head-spinning magic carpet trip by a heavily-scented boudoir. Dazzling, hypnotic, and horny as hell, MisplacedinFlowers is the sin qua non of white floral perfumes. –RIP Robert Herrmann, Sr. Editor (who handed on October 1, 2019).
