• Fragrance Brief #1 by Ruggles

    Gender: Feminine
    Family: Leather oriental

    This is not the sharp leather of yesterday. It’s soft, watery leather, based on washed and distressed notes.

    Notes:
    Faded, trampled musk
    Soft, wet smoke
    Washed leather
    Pale, pale, bitter Herbs

    Materials: Soft synthetics and strong naturals.

    Color: Warm, orange glow.

    Music: Erik Satie, Gymnopedie No. 1.

    The taste is foreign and bitter at first, but it becomes sweeter and smoother with time.

    The texture is soft to the touch.

    Imagery: A woman staring into a fire.

    Benchmarks: Vintage Miss Balmain extrait, now stone washed.


    Targeted towards a niche audience.

      Well, I have to admit that I really like this one. And it's GREAT with the suggested music. Just a great image. I know what I said earlier, but I have to admit that this one is very close to the floral cologne for me. Nice.

      I've been thinking about this one even more. In know that Oriental Lounge didn't work for you at multiple levels - not the least of which was our pretty dark lady getting dragged into the candy story by Hello Kitty. Take away her cat and maybe the daughter and I really see where you're going down a path that Céline Ellena might have taken but didn't. This one has the haunting beauty of Jennifer Connelly in Dark Water (and I won't touch the Hello Kitty backpack...). Maybe if things would have worked out differently for her, five years later. In any case, I really like this one, and will happily buy a bottle of this if its chosen.

      Love, love, love this idea. Lauder's Azuree as viewed through rippled glass in the warm glow of the setting sun.

      Thanks RP and Asha, this is the image that goes along with the brief: smoldering melancholy, through amber light.
