    Default Illuminum Haute Perfume

    Don't think it has been mentioned.

    When posting my SOTD, I accidentally bumped into Illuminum's website and came across their new line called "Haute Perfume", with 16 new releases. Has anyone tried them?

    Retailed at £175-£375 per 100mL bottle, they sound a bit of a rip off, typical of Boadi and his Boadicea brand. Vetiver Oud sounds interesting though.

    They are really churning them out, four variations of oud for chrissake! But if they actually are at 40% concentration I guess the price is not that bad, we are talking extraits after all.

    I'm eying for the Black Musk. Has anyone try those?

    This house has only been around for less than a year! 32 creations!

    Notice some of the 'Montale-inspired' names? Black Oud, Black Musk, Taif Rose...

    The Illuminum line was on display at Elements last week. I skin tested the Black Musk and must say while its a tad linear - it is one of the strongest most tenacious juices I've ever experienced. It lasted almost two days through two showers.. its incredibly sexy, dark and seductive. Its closed to HG material - up there with Black Afgano and Black Orchid. I am scared to ask how much a fb costs because I am pretty sure that when I go to London next year, I will be stopping by their Dover boutique and buying one. I am working on a review for my blog to be posted this week.

    I spoke to the reps and their goal is to bring niche back to the UK - first with an intro line and then a more advance Haute line for the more advanced tastes. From what I've smelt, they are quite strong across the board... definitely a highlight of Elements Show 2011.
