Panoramic Nostalgia. Disappearing Horizon. Velveteen Drift.  Narcotic flowers & musky fruits reveal supple leather with smooth woods, altogether like clouds floating into an impressionistic haze.

Reviews of Blond

There is one review of Blond.
The latest release from Hans Hendley at Hendley Perfumes is Blond, a nuanced mix of a few notes that I wouldn't prefer on their own but that Hans has nonetheless crafted into a very interesting perfume.

Big picture-wise, Blond has the aroma of a floral/leather/musk with some sweetness. The cantaloupe is the biggest standout note, followed by the suede, then musk, then the floral/powder trio of osmanthus/jasmine/iris and finally sandalwood as something that remains only in the background, it seems.

While most of the notes suggest a cold-weather fragrance, the creation is decidedly a year-round-pleasant option, with some power but still an overall balance of lightness and heaviness, somewhere distantly between an animalic leather fragrance and a freshie, the floral/leather mix being enhanced, frankly, by the use of the cantaloupe and musk.

At the line's standard pricing of $150 for 50ml, it's a fair price for niche craftmanship and a scent that franky is unlike anything I've smelled. Floral leathers are interesting, and one that I love that comes to is Coach Leatherware No. 1, but that's vastly different from Blond.

Blond is yet another creation by Hans that impresses me. I've been most blown away by Fume so far but frankly trying Blond inspires me to go back and retry his other works still in production--Rosenthal, Amora, and Mown.

Blond is certainly worth a try, even for those averse to leather or iris. It's just a subtle blend that produces a nice perfume, simply put.
