Charna Ethier of Windfall Fragrance Co.

Artisan botanical perfumer Charna Ethier of Windfall Fragrance Co. was my Rising Star of 2010 and  Michelyn’s (and Former Managing Editor Mark Behnke) Greatest Pure Perfumer of 2012 – and that ought to come as no shock to any of you who’ve skilled her physique of labor. In August 2011, my evaluation was the next: “Charna is just an interesting girl, with a big scope and a good bigger coronary heart! The fragrance I all the time wish to strive is Charna’s NEXT ONE.” Twelve years later, my opinion hasn’t altered one whit. Charna has moved from energy to energy, which is not any easy process – and the attribute which distinguishes her amongst the herd is her capability and willingness to take dangers and tilt the perfumed prism with a view to current new aspects whereas fusing magnificence with originality. Each spring/summer time season it’s her customized to launch a brand new cologne – and 2023’s Windfall Fragrance Co. Magnolia Mist doesn’t disappoint.

Perfumer Charna Ethier describes Magnolia Mist as “springtime in a bottle,” and “a contemporary gentle floral scent harking back to magnolia in bloom after a rain bathe.” This is a superb reference level.  The complexity of Windfall Fragrance Co Magnolia Mist complexity must be skilled with a view to totally respect its tender aquarelle-like loveliness. It balances limpidity with substance; the wearer finds himself transported to a rarified clime – a welcome attribute of superb olfactory journey. I can not reward it sufficient.

In springtime, the one fairly ring time,

When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding;

Magnolia Mist revels within the marriage of two romantic relations: the magnolia and pink champaca, every of which may be discovered on India’s native soil (magnolias additionally flourish in China). Whereas we frequently consider champaca because the pungent incense nag champa, the bloom itself possesses an intricate scent profile which incorporates notes of apricot, tea/maté, lemon, a smattering of hay and tobacco that are sequestered inside this blossom – together with a deeply seductive, honeyed floralcy. Charna’s Meyer lemon is the proper adjuvant, whereas tuberose augments magnolia and champaca’s heady, buttery attract. Sandalwood instinctively flatters all of the aforementioned fragrant supplies with out grandstanding, whereas ambrette’s watercolor transparency each helps anchor the scent and contributes to a notion of petrichor  (earthy, crystalline, metallic). Think about – all this richness from a cologne – the lightest model of perfume, during which there are solely 3-5% aromatics! Sheer and gauzy as Magnolia Mist could also be, it has shocking tenacity and a wispy indolic presence which underscores your entire composition masterfully – by means of intimation and innuendo.

Windfall Fragrance Co. Magnolia Mist is dreamily amorous and ethereal – a rare high quality for an eau de cologne. It’s extremely uncommon to seek out oneself wooed, refreshed, and elated by one thing so ephemeral, however Windfall Fragrance Co.’s newest enterprise achieves all of it with grace and lightness of foot. I staunchly preserve that Charna is a mistress of legerdemain, and her newest oeuvre solely illustrates this assertion. Only a few perfumers can create such a seductive and lasting net of beautiful delicacy from an all-natural palette. On this sensible, I put my cash the place my mouth is, and summarily bought a bottle. If nothing else, I’d urge you, expensive readers – to pattern Magnolia Mist for yourselves – particularly in case you love floral fragrances and/or are a romantic at coronary heart. Candy spring, certainly. Notes: magnolia blossom, pink champaca, Meyer lemon, tuberose, sandalwood, musk ambrette.

Pattern supplied by the perfumer – many thanks! It’s scrumptious. My nostril is my very own…
