Amnesia Rose - Eau de Parfum

$ 5.00

A sparkling and saturated spicy floral that pierces at a voluminous roundness that is evident on skin. It is a liquid that smells as though it’s been drenched with saffron and patchouli-edged petals, in a palette that veers out of fresh rose territory into a vintage, like blowing dust off a fine red wine. 

Its first inhalation captures a moment just after twilight on a languid late fall evening, when the swing of a door brings a waft from a bouquet that breaks up stagnant air. This rose is not a deep red or a pale pink but a pastel purple so pale it is almost gray. Its petal edges are just beginning to curl, tilting open, with a fullness that mimics the shape of a bulbous tea cup, filled with rich spice and hunks of rare wood. 

Its composition was inspired by the still life aesthetic of AEDES PERFUMERY, a place in New York City’s Lower East Side where abundant arrangements spill out of plump vases alongside feathered taxidermy and vintage fabrics. There is incense in the air and likely a blotter under your nose. The name comes from a rose varietal grown in France. While its smell is faint, its visual conjures a vintage look and feel that’s been translated into AMNESIA ROSE. 

Perfumer Luca Maffei spent years capturing the essence of the perfumery in a bottle, lending peppery and mysterious tones over time, and being sure to create something that worked on anyone’s skin. “This is an intense rose, whose personality never fades away and mostly, never goes unnoticed,” says Maffei. To create a sustained bloom with wooded spice, he contrasted Moroccan rose absolute and Bulgarian rose essence with cypriol oil, saffron and the succulent shrub bushman’s candle. A fizzy pink pepper can be smelled right away; but the initial sparkle of AMNESIA ROSE is soon replaced by a satin density that carries through to meet a dry, earthy cushion of labdanum, patchouli, and oud. 

AEDES DE VENUSTAS AMNESIA ROSE comes in a fluted glass bottle marked by peacock blue accents, a matte black insignia-stamped cap, and a sleek yet weighty design. As Bradl says, “It’s a rose for everyone.” 

Notes: Moroccan rose absolute, Bulgarian rose, bushman’s candle, saffron, cipryol, labdanum, pink pepper CO2, white incense, patchouli, benzoin, clearwood, oud.

Black Jade - Eau de Parfum

$ 5.00

In 1784, 10-year-old Pierre François Lubin became the apprentice of Tombarelli, a master perfumer of Grasse, in the south of France. Some years later, he came to Paris to complete his apprenticeship in the prestigious workshop of Fargeon, perfumer to the Royal Court. His ambition was subsequently to join the corporation of perfumers founded in the 15th century. 

The latter enjoyed growing prestige at the time, for since the reign of Louis XIV, hygiene had been making great progress at Versailles. The use of soaps, perfumes and cosmetics gradually became entrenched. The queen’s perfumer Fargeon was therefore a familiar face at the Royal Palace of Versailles, where he regularly brought his preparations to Queen Marie Antoinette.

The 18th century saw the awakening of a philosophical and political consciousness that gave the period its name of the “Age of Enlightenment”. Monarchy and the absolute power exercised by the sovereign were increasingly subject to criticism. These ideas spread to the people, and in 1789 royal power gave way to popular uprisings and was replaced by a revolutionary assembly elected by all, where the most radical elements eventually dominated. Under increasing attack, the royal family was finally imprisoned in the Tuileries castle in Paris, while war threatened at the borders.

Amidst this revolutionary Paris, Master Perfumer Fargeon remained loyal to Queen Marie Antoinette and continued to supply her with his preparations. One of these was his “eau de toilette”, an alcohol-based infusion that the queen applied to her skin during her morning ablutions to maintain the fresh complexion that caused so much envy at court. The young apprentice Lubin carefully copied his master’s formulae: he would remember them when he set up his own shop in rue Sainte Anne a few years later in 1798, and launched the famous “eau de toilette” that established his reputation. Marie Antoinette’s daughter, Marie Thérèse of France, who had become the duchess of Angoulême, quickly adopted it after her return from exile in 1815, and in turn appointed Lubin as “supplier to the Duke of Angoulême”

But the young Lubin was also interested in a mysterious perfume that the queen had ordered from Jean Louis Fargeon during the creation of the Trianon gardens, her private domain. The roses in the recipe of course evoked the flower garden, and are combined with jasmine from Grasse, but the use of spices and noble wood imported from distant lands, those that inspired the motifs of the wall decorations at Versailles, gave it more exotic tones. Precious patchouli and sandalwood, vanilla and cinnamon, coriander and cardamom, frankincense and galbanum were brought from India and French islands beyond the seas. With these ingredients, the initially cool floral fragrance became mellow and warm on the queen’s skin. It leaves a discreet trace with notes of amber, elegant and sensual. The queen took it everywhere in a small flask of black jade that protected it from daylight.

In the house of Lubin, the once lost but now resuscitated fragrance for a long time bore the name of “jardin secret”, until the 1930s, without any explicit reference ever being made to its origin. We have now restored its name of the time, “black jade”, the one brought to us by a close friend to whom the queen gave the black flask with its nostalgic whiffs when they parted for the last time. It held the “secret garden” of a queen, the memory of her happy days, of spring evenings in the intimacy of the Petit Trianon, at Versailles, but far from the pomp of the court.

A black jade bottle held the last remaining scents of a secret garden. The discovery of its formula, copied by an indiscreet apprentice, revealed its mysteries. It belonged to a queen in the Trianon rose gardens, far from the splendors of the Court, before the turmoil of history was unleashed. Entrusted to a noblewoman and very dear friend, it has come down to us through the ages to be reborn today. Galbanum, bergamot and cardamom provide a fresh prelude to the rose and jasmine heart notes, enhanced by a hint of incense and cinnamon. The amber base, anchored in exotic woods, Indian sandalwood and patchouli, is arrayed in vanilla and Tonka bean.

  • Top Notes: Galbanum, bergamot, cardamom
  • Middle Notes:  Rose, jasmin, incense, cinnamon
  • Base Notes: Sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla, tonka bean, amber
  • Olfactive Group: Floral

Catene - Candle 10.5oz

$ 230.00

Infuse your home with the luxe charms of Fornasetti with the Chiavi scented candle - housed in a distinctive ceramic vessel.

Piero Fornasetti’s printed the ‘Catene’ pattern for the first time in 1946 (which predates his discovery of 19th century opera singer Lina Cavalieri’s face btw), and the detailed, classic, cartoonish print sums up the designer’s style nicely.
Fornasetti combines this marvellous chain pattern (‘catene’ being Italian for chains’) with the Otto fragrance, a mix of wild and aromatic Mediterranean herbs and the earthy scents of pine sap, samphire and ambergris.
