Online niche fragrance retailer, LuckyScent.com, is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a collection of perfumes entitled The Decennial Collection. The new collection has been designed around the concept of capturing the spirit of its home city, Los Angeles.
LuckyScent.com have collaborated with two perfumers to create the range: Andy Tauer of Tauer Perfume and Tableau de Parfums; and Robertet's Jérome Epinette, who is behind fragrances including several for Byredo, Jovoy and Atelier
“Decennial truly captures our city of Los Angeles in all its energy, laid-back nature, diversity, complexity and controversy,” said Adam Eastwood, co-founder of LuckyScent.com. “Fragrance e-commerce began 10 years ago with LuckyScent.com, and we became the virtual Spice Road for the world’s most innovative and captivating scents. The journey continues…” said Franco Wright, co-founder of Luckyscent.com

The fragrances are as follows:
DECENNIAL - NUIT EPICÉE
A nod to the obscure and sophisticated nightlife hidden throughout Los Angeles’ mysterious and hidden back streets. Nuit Épicée plunges its wearer into a dark paneled room of velvety, oud-like woods and spice, subtly sweetened with praline and almond and warmed with an ambery-vanillic base. Jeans, black tie and everything in between…or nothing at all. NOTES: Almond, cumin, rhubarb, cistus, violet, blond woods, black amber, praline.
DECENNIAL - SANTAL SACRE
Conceived of as a serene and meditative fragrance to counter-balance the hectic pace of day-to-day life in Los Angeles, Santal Sacré epitomizes East Meets West. The clean and aromatic smell of burning incense; the scent of unfinished wood releasing its heady perfume…relaxation, quiet revelation, and peace. NOTES: Ginger, elemi, incense, white musks, papyrus, Australian sandalwood.
DECENNIAL - LYS DU DESERT
An ode to what spawned Los Angeles – the rugged yet delicate, unforgiving yet captivating desert – is captured in Lys du Desert. Perfumer Andy Tauer combines this special, creamy botanical with the warmth and dryness of the desert, a natural space that has fueled his olfactory imagination for years. NOTES: Bergamot, rose, green lily, dry cistrose, iris root, ambergris, dry cedar.
DECENNIAL - BOIS BOURBON
Bourbon – a spirit of choice which inspired author Raymond Chandler’s private eye Philip Marlowe, and Franco and Adam alike – has infused the sophisticated elixir that is Bois Bourbon, created as a softer, wearable bourbon fragrance. Detective Marlowe never had it so good. NOTES: Saffron, cinnamon bark, lavender, heliotrope, black rose, cedarwood, beach birch.
The Decennial collection is available in 75 ml French glass bottles with hand cut polished aluminum caps. Each fragrance retails for $150 and is available exclusively at online perfume retailer LuckyScent.com and at its retail destination, Scent Bar, in Hollywood.
