The most unusual perfumes

Before, I would never have thought that my passion would go so far. In high school, I, like a typical girl, loved sweet perfume, considering it to be the most correct and “feminine”. But over time, my tastes have become quite specific. Today I want to introduce the audience with a few flavors, which definitely will not remain unnoticed by you.

Many sophisticated perfume lovers have already heard of Secretions Magnifiques from Etat Libre d`Orange. Translation of the name – “wonderful allocation”. The idea of ​​the fragrance created by Antoine Lie was to make a fragrant portrait of the intestines of the human body at the moment when it is in a state of extreme excitement, whether it is excitement, panic or orgasm. The fragrance is based on four basic notes – four S, (in French Sperme, Sueur, Salive et Sang, that is “sperm, sweat, saliva and blood”). Of course, I tried it, but unlike most of the reviews, where people almost faint from the smell, I feel metal, or sweaty hands after the bar, giving off a metallic smell, salt sea and seaweed. So, you can wear it.

Also, the provocative “Orange Republic” produces such flavors as “Bold electrician”, “Delicious hidden gay”, “Praise to traitors”, “Padal”, “Palace whore”, “Virgin and Toreador”, etc. And their slogan sounds like: “Perfume died, long live the perfume!” While creating his brand, Etienne Swordt sought to free himself from perfume stereotypes and create conditions for greater freedom of expression, which was reflected in the name and concept of the brand.

“I hate perfume” – this is not the phrase of a person suffering from allergies, but the name of a series of fragrances created by American perfumer Christopher Brozius. The range of aromas CB I hate perfume is inspired by bright childhood and youthful memories. Brosius decided to recreate his favorite smells, and this is how the “Winter of 1972”, “Picking apples”, “In the summer kitchen” and a few dozen fragrances were born.

Too often, perfume is an ephemeral corset that gives all people the same unnatural form

Memory of Kindness – the fragrance of a greenhouse with tomatoes, the fragrance of childhood memories. A clump of earth, the smell of tomato leaves and hot summer.

Winter 1972 – the smell of the first frosts, frozen, frozen ground, the smell of freshly fallen snow, wet mittens.

Soaked Earth is a moist soil, a soil chord with a dusty finish of the dried up soil at the end. Atmospheric work, focused on the smell of the earth.

In the Library – a paper, sweet-woody smell of old books. Ancient library, centuries-old dust mixed with the delicate smell of leather covers.

We live because we breathe, and breathing in the air, we also breathe in the fragrances that we carry with it. Therefore, life with us inevitably follows smells. Smell is a unique record about this or that moment of our life. Unique smells are unique, as well as those who “wear” them, and I just spill these bottles and serve them to you

The blood contains all the “information” about this or that person. In the perfume concept, blood is only one way to tell us about ourselves. Aromas are called the same as the four blood groups – “A” (II), “B” (III), “AB” (IV), “O” (I). The very first collection surprised the audience quite a lot. Perfumes did have the smell inherent in blood. In it, the presence of a “metallic” smell was quite clearly traced.

The spirits are placed in rather unusual bottles. They look like sterile boxes, to which a “dispenser” is attached.

About the aroma Muscs Koublaï Khän often say that this is one of the most “dirty” musk in the history of perfumery. He is compared to a cat’s tray, the armpit of a camel driver, a zoo in a third world country, and other unpleasant things. In addition to musk, this aroma contains a note of cumin (seeds, which are often used in seasonings), cibetins (secretions from the glands of the animals of the viverov family, from their own feces they collect the famous type of coffee spruce) and the root of the costus, which is fairly attributed the smell is not quite fresh hair. But, as often happens, there are also lovers of the fragrance, which are very affectionate about him. In their opinion, this is the fragrance of savagery, sensual, animal, sexual, aggressive. Amazing mixture of animal and vegetable musk, dissolved in a warm ambergris blossom. The aroma of a bed not yet filled, which left a few moments ago. And fur, two under a fur blanket.

Demeter Fragrance Library is a New York perfumery company that appeared in the 1990s.

The fragrance library Demeter is a collection of everyday, but original fragrances that surround us everywhere. The smell of herb grass lawn, coffee, paint, pizza, baby powder, thunder, snow and garden after the rain.

Cannabis Flower (now available under the name Amsterdam) – the aroma of fresh cannabis. Do not wait for the “haphazard madness,” it’s just fresh leaves.

Dregs is the wine sediment. Grapes of the Isabella variety. A little bit of a fermented brush of grapes on a glass plate.
