Fragrance Junkie Central

I know there are a few of us on BT that are fragrance addicts, so I thought it would be nice to have a dedicated place where we can share our thoughts.

 

This is not to take away from the lovely What Are You Wearing Today, Fragrance Edition thread, but more a place to post longer reviews, chat about new brands or releases, and just shoot the breeze on anything good and smelly Smiley Happy

 

For me, I recently acquired 2 new decants that I've been anxiously awaiting.  Ever since Lachaton mentioned that MMM was releasing a new scent called By The Fireplace I've been itching to get my hands on it.  My decant arrived yesterday, so I'm looking forward to marinating in it this weekend.  Secondly, I recently picked up a tiny sample of Shiseido Nombre Noir.  Supposedly it is one of the most expensive failures in perfume history - made by Serge Lutens for Shiseido back in the 80s.  Of course, with a backstory like that, I was dying to get a sniff Smiley Very Happy

 

What's new on your scent radar?  Do tell!

Re: RE: Fragrance Junkie Central

@MochapjThanks for sleuthing this out! I'm a little surprised - other than turmeric, the notes are very clichéd. Will def test this out when I can though!

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

Has anyone heard news about Commodity’s return under new ownership? Vicken Arslanian bought the company in August of last year, and is going to make a documentary of his reviving the brand. The first two parts are up on YT under “Commodity Fragrances.” I love a few of their fragrances and am very excited about the news, so thought I would share!

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

Jo Malone has a new release, Vetiver & Golden Vanilla. Vetiver and vanilla has already been done so well before by Hermes and Etat Libre but I love vetiver and cardamom so I'll definitely give this a try.

 

Top Note
Cardamom

This cool spice, with its green accent, resonates with the freshness of the grapefruit tea accord.

 

Heart Note
Vetiver Bourbon

Earthy and grassy, its elegant, woody intensity grounds and deepens the fragrance.


Base Note
Vanilla Bourbon

Vanilla adds an enveloping and sensual warmth to the vetiver heart.

Re: Fragrance Junkie Central

Sephora has a product page up for Atelier C's latest, Love Osmanthus.

 

Scent Type: Fruity Florals

Key Notes: Osmathus, Cedarwood, Lemon

About the fragrance:Discover the osmanthus flower with Atelier Cologne. Sourced in China, this nocturnal flower blooms at night, adding a fruity essence to an exotic garden under the moonlight. Love Osmanthus captures the aura of this special flower in the same way a secret garden provides a haven to forbidden lovers.

This fragrance is made from 93 percent renewable, natural-origin ingredients of the highest quality: Osmanthus flower from China brings peach-like creaminess while lemon from Italy adds brightness and warmth, both grounded by cedarwood from America.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian has teamed up with Fendi to release a scented leather handbag.

 

From Hypebae, Coming in both mini and standard sizes, the “FENDIFRENESIA” is constructed of sunshine-yellow Selleria leather and perfumed with Kurkdjian’s musky, gender fluid fragrance. Each bag comes with a small bottle of the scent, which can be vaporized on a card hidden inside the purse or worn on the skin.

 

The scent is supposed to last 4 years and is described as gender fluid, leathery and musky with notes of labdanum, styrax oil, vanilla bean and rose.

 

Would you buy a scented purse?
