Ways of Smelling

by Wild Gardener on 14th April 2020 at 02:57 PM
Here's a story I heard one time; a perfumer was asked to make a scent for a client's swimming pool.
He found out what sort of thing they wanted, asked a few questions about the water purification system and went ahead and mixed up something fresh. When it was done the client smelled it on a paper strip and said 'Ok, that's fine', paid for the stuff, and took it home. The next day there was a phone call. 'What have you done? It's awful. The swimming pool smells like sewage!' The perfumer

The jungle mountain

by Wild Gardener on 13th March 2020 at 09:07 PM
Smelling Jungle Tiger and Jungle Elephant together, it's evident they are two sides of the same mountain. Each has its own character but they are clearly elements of the same body. And what's more, it's clear that the peak of Dominique Ropion's prodigious talent, for this time, rested above and beyond, in the clouds.

Fougère Royale was of course the original fougère. It was not only the first example of the genre but also one of the first fantasy perfumes - abstract creations that don't draw their inspiration from nature.

Paul Parquet's great and novel idea was to create a perfume structure based on the contrasts and harmonies of three different materials : the fresh aromatic smell of lavender, the sweet and powdery hay-like odour of coumarin and the resinous dark orange of bergamot.

Un pays de sauvages

by Wild Gardener on 13th August 2019 at 02:45 PM
Taking to the air, we scent the gardens of Sicily ... cedrat and mandarin,
and wild flowers that strew the rocky slopes.

And then, in a wing beat, we're over the high peaks and into the mountains
where wild grown lavender and herbs are found,
and we breathe in the rough bark moss
and soft rose de mai, narcisse.

Where does this warm base come from? so deep and so lightly floral?
nobody knows. Only, it's a land of goats,

Not exactly Egghead Weds Hourglass but not far from it; Peaches and Cream Floral meets Cumin Leather Chypre. The contrast is extreme, the balance precarious and perfect. This was only the third perfume by Roudnitska and already a first masterpiece.

Roudnitska wasn't content with turning out mere pretty perfume, he liked to use odd themes in his work, and in Femme the stone he threw into the pool was cumin.

Femme is a lactonic, pink fruity floral with a dark bitter
