Une aire de reformulation

by Wild Gardener on 14th June 2018 at 01:57 PM
What makes L'Air du Temps so interesting isn't the complexity of the theme - it's just a carnation bouquet. It doesn't have an unusual structure - it's an ordinary head/heart/base triangle. Evolution of the profile is moderate - there are no surprises. What makes L'Air du Temps so interesting is the seductive quality of the materials and the textures they deploy.

Let's start at the base and work our way up. The profile starts with a pedestal of sandal, methyl ionone and a vetiver

Parfums de Chine

by Wild Gardener on 11th May 2018 at 08:36 PM

As well as the usual grease based unguents for skin and hair, they would fumigate themselves by draping their clothes over a bamboo frame, like a small tent with an incense burner underneath. Another

Lauren and the Little Black Dress

by Wild Gardener on 2nd May 2018 at 08:43 AM
Lauren is an early example of the fruity floral based on a natural affinity of banana and jasmin. It's well made throughout and of a material quality that used to go without saying back in 1978. Michael Edwards puts Lauren in the fruity floral category but this lovely old scent is very different from a modern thing like La Petite Robe Noire - which it found itself next to in Fragrances of the World 2015. A comparison between these two - one pale and soft, the other bombastic - shows just how much

A sprig of Muguet on the first of May

by Wild Gardener on 26th April 2018 at 07:13 PM
Of the four pagan festivals of ancient Europe the only one that hasn't been subsumed into the Christian calendar is Beltane, May Day. Although it is now celebrated across the world as Labour Day this has nothing to do with the traditional practice of pastoralists who drove their cattle between two huge fires to sanctify them before turning them out onto their summer pastures.

There is however, maybe unwittingly, a remnant of this pagan rite of purification still extant in France,
