LAVS by UNUM
An unsurpassable incense. This spectacular, searing scent is a new classic from the modern masters at UNUM. Green, dense yet ultimately spectral, LAVS is a knockout rendition of incense before, during and after ignition. Resign yourself to the hypnotic, waving incantations of LAVS.
La Fille de Berlin by Serge Lutens
An unapologetic, insouciant and original beauty, La Fille de Berlin pulses with ruby intensity. The Sally Bowles of spicy red roses, this Lutens classic is romantic, uplifting and utterly indulgent. Life’s a cabaret, with all its ups and downs, in La Fille de Berlin.
Cowboy Grass by D.S. & Durga
A refreshing, profound wander through the lively and ever-so-slightly lonely landscape of the American west. From the Brooklyn autuers, D.S. & Durga, the delightfully herbal Cowboy Grass narrates a stealthy journey across mountains and plains, set to a Copland tune. A scent in which to seek your destiny, daily.
Avignon by Comme des Garcons
A sacred scent that is slightly coniferous, herbal Avignon is like a soothing sermon, a balm for the soul. Roman chamomile and palisander are prominent features that support a gauzy, sweet film of incense. Sprayable sanctuary from the iconoclastic masters at Comme des Garcons.
Aqua Universalis by Maison Francis Kurkdjian
Like freshly showered, sun kissed skin after a day at the beach, Aqua Universalis is refreshing, supple and sweet. A lightweight wonder that’s versatile, this eau de toilette reflects the inherent optimism that accompanies a life lived out, under the sun. The proverbial classic white shirt of Kurkdjian’s oeuvre.
Black Afgano by Nasomatto
A fabulous (and famous) option from a favorite enfant terrible, Nasomatto. Naughty and nice, this substance of rumored illegal origins strikes just the right balance of illicit and irresistible. A cashmere textured, versatile, long-lasting fragrance, Black Afgano is irrefutably addictive.
Field Notes from Paris by Ineke
As tartly rich as a late afternoon aperitif accompanied by Gauloises enjoyed in a Montmarte cafe. Field Notes From Paris is a tangy, uplifting tobacco fragrance from Ineke, the doyenne of naturalistic, simple beauty. Galvanizing and enlivening, Field Notes From Paris enables us to engage in any opportunity that comes our way.
Tuberoza by Nishane
A Mexican tuberose that is sunny, romantic and thrillingly textured. As long lasting as any of Nishane’s powerful options, Tuberoza sits lightly on skin, imposing only in it’s undeniable uplifting power. As refreshingly romantic as a perfect, single, cut flower, Tuberoza sweeps us off our feet every time we wear it.
L’air du Desert Marocain by Tauer
A desert floral abloom amidst a sandy sea of spice. L’Air du Desert Marocain is the fragrance that solidified Tauer as a singular voice in modern scent: anyone who wears this fragrance will be similarly distinguished. Hot and dry yet sweetly supple, L’air du Desert Marocain surrounds us like a warm wind; not even the sands of time can diminish it’s literal (and proverbial) staying power.
Burning Barbershop by D.S. & Durga
The sweet, slow, floral-medicinal burn of nostalgia arson. The barbershop of yore burns down to the ground in this D.S. & Durga classic, and in it’s place molten vinyl and a tricked out, chemically re-engineered lavender reigns supreme. The lovable bad boy of D.S. & Durga’s cannon, Burning Barbershop is a take-no-prisoners, revisionist approach to the fougere.
Intense Cafe by Montale
Bittersweet perfection, Intense Cafe is neither cloying nor vaguely textured. Rose’s sharp sweetness is augmented by the rich, tangy intensity of a dark coffee, like a masterfully made espresso cut with just the right amount of unrefined sugar. Intense Cafe is Montale’s answer to those who both love and fear gourmands. A majestic, lush scent that beckons; take a bite.
Salome by Papillon
A devilish tobacco rose, Salome is as irrefutably lusty as the self same heroine. A natural wonder from the artisanal master of Papillon Perfumes, Salome possesses a vintage charm that makes us recall our first encounters with perfume, a mysterious substance that sets apart the proverbial kids from adults. This mature, musk-addled rose is red as lipstick on your collar.
Ambre Loup by Rania J.
Sensuously spiced and lushly sweet, Ambre Loup is as wild as a heart, racing in passion. A treacly, thick scent refracted through the east-meets-west sensibility of Rania J, this fragrance recalls the intense stillness and rush of movement that characterizes the proverbial chase (of lust or love). A sensual embodiment of the beautiful beast that lurks within, Ambre Loup has us howling at the moon.
