Laurie Erickson, the perfumer, has taken an unusual turn with vetiver, pairing it with a succulent blood orange and the soft florals of jasmine sambac and osmanthus absolute…and catch my while I faint, Mysore sandalwood.
The Fragrant Man is very pleased to introduce you to Amer, our new guest writer. Amer is Greek, and when not working as an architect, he is an amateur explorer in the art of perfumery – we found him in the comments section of the Fleus de Web post, where he delivered an extraordinary review of Multiflore.
Μετά από αρκετή σκέψη -και μια κριτική πάνω σε ένα άρωμα που δεν υπάρχει στ’αλήθεια- αποφάσισα να επιλέξω το Eau de Gentiane Blanche σαν θέμα της πρώτης μου κριτικής στο “The Fragrant Man” (Ο Ευωδιαστός Άνδρας).
Perfume is completely about olfactive memories….ones that were created and ones that are yet to be created. Nothing can trigger my emotional buttons as intensely as scent.
Ensar has been keeping his eye on a 60 year-old cultivated tree in Thailand that just recently began to show signs of readiness for harvest.
For Perfume Writers:
The writer of a perfume review based on the photograph Multiflore, will receive a Fragrant and Tasty gift of Kampot Peppercorns from Cambodia.
Wearing a scent is probably the most personal thing a person can wear. It externalises one’s soul.
Pores are windows of our body.
So a scent is like a breeze that visits.
When the soul avails itself, the scent can be an agreeable stranger.
A beautiful stranger.
Two Fragrance Reviews by a person who does not wear fragrance.
Boys, here is one for the 21st century man, not a flower petal in sight. The brief to the perfumer was to create a fragrance inspired by this photo.
Arvo 1.30pm I’m beaming as I stroll this enchanted forest. Straight off I hear John Muir say; “The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness.” Will you stroll with me?
