Niche perfume doesn’t sigh after trends. Perfume has an eternity of its own since it’s never concerned with finding out what comes next. It is an ephemeral moment of joy, but a memory that lasts forever.
As autumn has fallen, perfume aficionados and perfume houses search for the perfect scent to energize the mornings and give warmth to the night.
Maison Rebatchi surprises us this fall with two scents:
Myrrhe & Musc is a sweet-spicy perfume. The opening notes of this unisex perfume are Juniper and Pink Pepper, followed by the heart notes of Frankincense and Myrrh creating a strong, but not over-empowering allure. The base is rich and deep, grace to the Patchouli and Musk notes in its composition. This is more than a scent, it is a journey into the Oriental world.
Santal Nirvana is an ode brought to sandalwood. The nose behind this perfume is Nathalie Feisthauer, who describes how Mohamed Rebatchi aimed to “get as close to the material”, creating a true sandalwood fragrance that sets it apart from others on the market right now. The star of this fragrance is the Sandalwood, which shines vividly through spicy notes of Saffron, Patchouli, Oud Wood, and Incense. Cashemran and Ambroxan fix the fragrance, adding some depth and creating a rare and sensual scent.
Wearing this on a date night with your loved one makes you shine in the dim light of a refined restaurant.
This fall brings us a soft blend between the sweet allure of vanilla and the sensuality of leather - BDK Parfums Paris Vanille Leather. The top notes of Pink Peppercorn and Violet Accord open the way for the Tuberose Absolute from India, Jasmine Absolute from Egypt and Orange Flower Absolute. The notes of Vanilla from Madagascar, Patchouli Oil from Indonesia, Orris, Oak Wood and Benzoin Resinoid get beautifully intertwined at the base of this perfume.
For those who are in love with the freshness of citrusy fragrances, Wild Orange envisioned by Fragrance du Bois will be ecstatic. The top notes are the most delicious mocktail made of Orange, Mandarin Orange, Lemon and Bergamot, followed by a delicate bouquet of Orange Blossom, Lily of the Valley and Cypress. The base keeps freshness, adding Cedar, Sandalwood, Patchouli and Vetiver.
Lovers by Fragrance du Bois is a Floral Fruity love story, with an opening of Passionfruit, Plum, Ginger and Bergamot. The middle of this story is enriched by Rose, Saffron and Jasmine, as well as the base of Patchouli, Cashmere Wood, Cedarwood, Vetiver and Sandalwood. The ingredients whisper the greatest love stories from Romeo and Juliet until nowadays, reminding us about the collateral beauty of creation.
Althaïr by Parfums de Marly is a male fragrance that encapsulates the unforgettable essence of Amber and Vanilla. It is a truly delicious composition, with top notes of Cinnamon, Bergamot, Cardamom and Orange Blossom. The middle notes of Bourbon Vanilla and Elemi enhance the perception of tastiness. The base of Musk, Praline, Ambroxan and Guaiac achieves its proposed goal and guarantees a confident presence and high morale at any time.
Parfums de Marly offers a floral fruity fragrance for the women who know that softness is their superpower. All the femininity in the world has gathered in the white bottle of Valaya, revealing a luminous opening of Aldehydes, White Peach, Bergamot and Mandarin Orange. The middle tells the story of the most beautiful flower bouquet that one can ever imagine, with Orange Blossom, Petalia, Lily-of-the-Valley, Vetiver, Nympheal, and Mahonia. The end tells the story of the remarkable effort of the best quality fixatives: Musk, Ambroxan, Akigalawood, and Vanilla.
This fragrance resembles the softness of a cotton blouse against the skin, the comforting aroma of home, and a graceful blend of curiosity and familiarity.
With every launch, L’Adoné gifts us meaning through perfume. ELENYA Silver is an open invitation to an emotional journey towards the hidden layers of our subconscious. Being designed for both of the sexes, this woody fragrance is sweetened by a breeze of flowers due to the Pink Pepper, Peach, Fig and Ylang-Ylang. The bouquet of Tuberose, Violet and White Musk completes perfectly with the base notes, intense and deep: Sandalwood, Driftwood and White Lotus.
The greyhound of Trussardi takes us on a perfumed journey on the streets of Milan through three perfumed artworks destined for both ladies and gentlemen.
District of Nolo tells the story of a vivid neighborhood with a lively nightlife, through floral and fruity accords. It is a perfume with a dominant note of fruit, comforting and sunny. The top notes are Earthy Notes, Violet Leaf and Italian Lemon, offering an unimaginable, yet ephemere, individuality. Later on, the middle notes of Italian Orris Root, Hedione and Rose create an olfactory delight. There is one element which fascinates the wearer from the begining, to the middle and a bit towards the end: the pear, the epitome fruit of fall. As we can smell and observe, Madagascar Vanilla is a loved ingredient especially this fall, being found at the base of this fragrance, together with Musk and Ambroxan.
Hidden Corner of Fontana dei Baci is an amber fragrance meant to envelop autumn mornings. Amber itself is the processed resin of numerous species of conifers, being particularly valuable. In this composition, it counterbalances the top notes: Hazelnut, Black Pepper, Mineral notes and enhances the Cinnamon and Rose. It can be found at the base of this fragrance, making a great spell with Tonka Bean, Amber, Vetiver, Styrax and Labdanum.
Walking on the picturesque Italian streets, filled with history and charm, you encounter the street artists which make the place unforgettable.
The Street Artists of Isola by Trussardi is woody aromatic fragrance with a luminous floral opening of Water Lily, Cyclamen and Ambrette. The middle notes make this fragrance stand out, with its rare notes of Fennel, Orris and Mugane. The base is made of high-quality fixatives such as Lorenox, Musk and Amber.
Courrèges celebrates this autumn with four scented novelties:
Le Messager is the story of a new encounter and the love celebrated through handwritten letters, presenting a lovely and innovative middle olfactive note: ink. With the opening of fresh Bergamot and the warm base of White Musk, the ink offers the aroma of a forgotten time.
Hyper Cuir is a delightful blend of citrusy freshness, grace to the Lemon in the opening. The initial citrus burst is an invigorating top note, while the Jasmine creates a slightly exotic aroma, while the Vanilla rounds the fragrance, adding a layer of depth. Smelling this balanced, yet intriguing smell, a perfume lover can not help but have an epiphany.
Hyper Musc is a refreshing, yet sensual composition which enchants our sense of smell without being overempowering. The Mint at the top offers a inviorating aroma, while the Musk in the middle offers a subtle hint of sophistication. The Vanilla at the base adds a touch of sweetness, making this fragrance impossible to forget.
She or him, who wears the king of oils, can never be forgotten. Hyper Oud is a rich and warm scent. The exotic top notes of Turmeric and Ginger have a spicy aroma, like a vibrant sunset. As it unfolds, the middle of Oud creates the mystery and charm, being embraced by Vanilla. There is something truly special about this fragrance, the story of its ingredients creating a magic spell, a tapestry of flavours or a lasting impression of uniqueness.
We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and the urge for the foreign and strange, especially when it comes to our signature scent.
We love the fragrances that remind us of significant moments of persons in our past and we long for perfumes that will turn upside down our olfactory identity.
