Grenadille d'Afrique - Eau de Parfum

$ 5.00

From crackling sap to balmy resin. Smoky wood to sun-seared stone. Purple dusk to ink-black night. Aedes de Venustas’ seventh scent explores the age-old landscape of Africa in a tribute to ancient ebony…Grenadille D’Afrique.

Grenadille d’Afrique expresses not only its namesake tree, but also the primal landscape in which it grows. Intriguingly described as “fossilized wood rubbed in a vanilla accord”, this strongly contrasted composition sets its dark heart off with luminous notes.

It is dusk or dawn? Sparkling bergamot captures the last rays of the sun, while a purple haze of lavender and violet spill their powdery moonlight on the savannah grasslands… Run through from twigs to roots with aromatic, juniper-scented sap, this olfactory portrait of the mythical African Blackwood tree is built around a “trunk” of Haitian vetiver. With its complex facets of wood, smoke, earth and flint, it is the vertical axis that draws together the fragrance’s vegetal, animal and mineral notes.

Turned into combustible resin by a lash of ambery cistus labdanum, vanilla exudes its balsamic warmth. Bleached wood, skin-soft bark and sun-heated stone release the day’s heat into the ink-black night, cooled off by a breeze of musk…

  • Top Notes: Bergamot, lavender
  • Middle Notes: Juniper, violet
  • Base Notes: African blackwood accord, cistus labdanum, vetiver, milky white tea accord, musk
  • Olfactive Family: Balsamic wood
  • Perfumer: Alberto Morillas

La Femme Bohème - Eau de Parfum

$ 5.00

She travels in any direction the wind decides to blow, languid and free without the slightest worry in the world. Unbound by the restrictions of time, she follows her careless whims instead.

The sun is already high in the sky when she wakes on a bed of hay, a resting place not unfamiliar after a night drenched in the hazy pleasures of wine.

A soupçon of dried sweat mixed with a veil of cigarette smoke lingers on her skin, a scent intensified by the blaze of the afternoon heat. Who knows what today will hold? Life is just meant to be lived and she is La Femme Bohème.

Orb_ital - Eau de Parfum

$ 5.00

Orbitone®

It softens other materials, appeases tensions between musk, woody and floral notes, and makes perfume blends light as clouds… Since the early 1990s, “the transparent woody-ambery odor of Iso E Super has shaped and defined modern perfumery like hardly any other material,” writes the fragrance chemist Philip Kraft. With Orbitone®, Takasago offers a sophisticated, surprisingly textured version of this indispensable molecule.

The scent: Wood in orbit

Orbits are the result of a perfect balance between momentum and gravity. And in orb_ital, Patricia Choux has brilliantly used the balancing qualities of her star molecule to create a new fragrant planetary system. Violet and rhubarb; pepper, cedar and roast coffee; tobacco, smoke, and a whiff of struck match… Of the many facets spinning around Orbitone® the perfumer has picked pepper as the main force of attraction. The spice’s cool-hot burn acts from top to base notes in orb_ital, exerting its pull on a creamy sandalwood compound, Takasago’s Hindinol®, anchored by sacred olibanum.

Palissandre d'Or - Eau de Parfum

$ 5.00

Palissandre d'Or: A milky light, glowing through wood so polished it turns into silk. 

A smoldering palette of burnt sienna, lacquered red and molten gold… Abstract yet intensely evocative, Palissandre d’Or expresses the quintessence of Alberto Morillas’ style, defined by the master in three words: “Fluidity, transparency and power”.

In this dazzling olfactory marquetry, crystal-clear ambrette – a natural musk with rose, pear and iris facets – brightens rich inlays of cool spices: pink pepper, coriander and nutmeg. Then, as the torrid heat of cinnamon rises, the scent opens up its heart to deliver its secret: a rare sandalwood extract from Sri Lanka. Subtly smoky, rose-tinged and creamy, it is made more luscious still by the milky warmth of copahu balm and a silken patchouli extract. 

A bold trio of cedar essences add structure and texture to the lustrous blend. Clean, bracing Virginian cedar gives it vigor and tempo. The Lapsang Souchong tea facet of Chinese cedar and the Russian leather smokiness of Alaskan cedar – another rare new extract showcased by Alberto Morillas – carve burnished patterns into the fine-grained wood. The scent of Ambrox, an intriguing fusion of warm, clean bark and sun-kissed skin, tattoos the delicate motifs onto the body… Serene and mystical, Palissandre d’Or is a journey into the quintessence of wood.

  • Base Notes: Sandalwood, copahu balm, cedarwood, patchouli, ambroxan

Talismania Collection - Upper Ten - Eau de Parfum

$ 5.00

America was still very sparsely populated in the 19th century, when immigrants arrived in droves from other continents – all fleeing an «Old Country» where an individual’s destiny was a mere accident of birth, rather than the result of talent and hard work.

This youthful, freedom-loving populace dreamed of a better future and within a century had founded the first nation born of the sheer will of the people. On this land without memory emerged the United States of America – a country turned constantly towards the new. A new aristocracy gradually arose from among this multitude of striving people, an elite of visionary and ambitious men.

Like millions of others, those 10,000 men left their homeland one day with no hope of ever returning – but they had a bolder streak, and their dreams were on a grander scale. People called them the «Upper Ten», a phrase coined by American poet Nathaniel Willis to designate «the ten thousand that matter»: the pioneers of America’s industrial century whose energy laid the groundwork for US supremacy.

The strength of willpower the scent of success

Upper Ten is the fragrance of the corridors of power. The aroma is like entering a New York or Chicago Gentlemen’s Club in 1880. Cedar, sandalwood and fine leather with an added floral touch of geranium make up the main accord of this manly tribute to the life force of these American pioneers. Cardamom quickens its woody note while smooth cinnamon invigorates the mix. The amber, musky base brings more potency and depth, conferring a reassuring strength.

  • Top Note: Bergamot, cardamom, bay rose, saffron, juniper berry
  • Middle Notes: Cinnamon, geranium essence, leather, peach, orange blossom,
  • Base Notes: Cedar wood, sandalwood, patchouli, amber, white musk
  • Olfactive Group: Spice

Upper Ten for Her - Eau de Parfum

$ 5.00

Marion skims through the Gotham City night in her sleek Duesenberg, kicking up her heels and sipping bootleg cocktails at the Ziegfield Follies and whisky at the Savoy. She dances the Lindy Hop then strikes languorous poses, smoking Turkish cigarettes while Sweetheart pouts sulkily – but life’s too short, and there are so many parties to go to! ‘Upper Ten for Her’ is the fragrance that lingers in the wake of these stylish flappers during their extravagant evenings on the town.

It opens with a sweet, tart blend of Isabella grape and bergamot, spiced up with elemi and artemisia. At its heart is Bulgarian rose, mingled with raspberry liqueur and Sichuan pepper which gives way to base notes of precious wood enriched with amber, frankincense and a hint of dark chocolate. 

  • Top Note: Bergamot, Isabella grape, elemi resin, artemisia
  • Middle Notes: Bulgarian rose, raspberry liqueur, Sichuan pepper
  • Base Notes: Precious woods, amber, frankincense, dark chocolate
