    Default New Fragrances: ELdO Dangerous Complicity & The Afternoon of a Faun

    DANGEROUS COMPLICITY

    Gimme Danger Little Stranger !

    Rum , Ginger , Coconut, Calamus essence, Osmanthus absolute, Egyptian Jasmine, Ylang Ylang,, Lorenox, Patchouli

    EDP - 100ml / 3.4 Fl.Oz

    Fragrances' inspirations: Adam & Eve

    Created by Violaine Colas.

    Fragrance's storytelling : Every dangerous complicity requires the infusion of something that can endure beyond desire, beyond the commitment – a scent that speaks the language of the skin. Something to remind you of what you have, what you had, what you could have again. So that when the intimacy is gone, there is still a scent to recall the memory of a touch. For inspiration, we look to Adam and Eve. By eating the forbidden fruit, complicity took on another
    dimension, and became dangerous. They lost their innocence and their paradise. The door was opened to carnal energy, they were liberated from restrictions, and they could now create their own version of Eden. That forbidden fruit became a one-way ticket to Etat Libre d’Orange.

    Do you know the Osmanthus flower? The scent of the Chinese plant has a bewitching allure, and the tea which is made from its small white blossoms is known to encourage seduction. Add to this the jasmine, famed as an aphrodisiac. Then bind them together with the strength of leather, and expunge all inhibitions with the intoxicating power of rum. Now you are ready to form an alliance, break some rules, and take the risk – to
    enter into that dangerous complicity of hearts, minds and flesh !





    AFTERNOON OF A FAUN

    Did I love a Dream ?

    Bergamot, pepper, cinnamon, incense, immortal flower, orris, myrrh, leather, benzoin

    Eau de Parfum 100 ml/ 3.4 Fl. Oz

    Fragrance's inspirations: Nijinski Ballet, Cocteau, Mallarmé

    Created by Ralf Schwieger

    Fragrance'storytelling: The faun awakes from his mid-day sleep, and contemplates his morning’s encounters with some nymphs. In his reflections, his pursuit of the alluring creatures takes on libidinous proportions as he seeks to satisfy his desire. It is a beautiful memory – but did it really happen? Reality fades, and confusion reigns until overcome by sleep – which can open the door to more dreaming. When Nijinsky danced the story, he created a scandal. The carnal subtext of Mallarme’s poem became an explicit expression of a sexual appetite. The ballet went beyond the sensual to a demonstration of a powerful virility. Shameless, the critics declared. In this scent, find the relationship between the suggestive fantasy and the seductive reality. The Faun, a simple, passionate creature of sylvan life, wakes in the forest. Fleeting memories of the preceding afternoon tease his brain. Here and there, the images of alluring nymphs, each with her contrasting fascinations, drift through his brain, but he cannot assure himself whether these are actual memories of beings, or mere visions of imagination. Surely there was one lovely nymph- and yet more- tender, shy, bold, provoking, yielding- only to recapture events! but he cannot. One after another, images take life before him, only to elude him. He strives to discern whether it be a swan in shining flight down by the lake, or naiads playing in the water. The delicious sensations grow more vague; fact or fancy he will never certainly know. If he could but put substance into his dreams as he blows out empty grape skins. It is impossible. He forsakes the vain attempt. The rich sunlight enmeshes him in langour. The grass is lush and soft. He turns lazily to sleep again and dreams, since waking blurs the actuality of his visions.

    The two sound intriguing, and it will be interesting to see how the DC handles the osmanthus.
    Thanks for the heads up.

    To be honest, Adam & Eve mainly opened the door to anxiety as they became aware of themselves and their differences/aloneness (and they had not learned to love each other yet, hence Adam blames Eve, instead of trying to protect her), which leads directly to consumer culture of any sort (including carnal, if you wish). Just saying, ELDO! :-p

    Gimme Danger sounds very un-Iggy Pop from the notes... I'd rather have the second one's notes and the cool name and bottle of the first.

    The note lists sound enticing, as much as the ad copy is made of eye-roll.

    LOL!

    Honestly, I think that both the notes and the story are an improvement over that fragrance with the picture of a beige drone flying through a rainstorm.

    The 100 ml bottles look to be rather elegant.

    Dangerous Complicity sounds very interesting - soft languorous florals hiding complicated leather - and I can't wait to test it.

    But, AFTERNOON OF A FAUN doesn't list any notes and no descriptions of what it actually smells like!? It is a nice story that incorporates some incredible music, story, a dance whatever - what does it actually smell like? The most interesting part of the description to me is that it was created by Raif Schwieger whose name is associated with some of the more subtle and interesting new fragrances that are being launched in todays market. So, out of curiosity, I anxiously await a test of the new Raif Schwieger creation. It is a nice story, but ultimately doesn't grab me - I will try it though.
