    Default Fueguia 1833 . . . Any information on this line

    I see where Luckyscent just added Fueguia 1833.

    Anyone familiar with thier fragrances. Reading some of the notes, seems like some are very interesting.

    I like this idea: "Bedel describes his scents using the concept of the atom, as opposed to the model of a pyramid. Instead of referring to top, middle and bottom notes, Bedel envisions the primary note as the nucleus and other prominent notes as electrons, orbiting around the nucleus. Although there may be as many as a hundred components in a particular formula, Bedel limits his descriptions to three major notes. The first note listed will be the central “nucleus” of the fragrance. Each fragrance comes in a recyclable glass bottle in a hand-made wooden box, crafted from wood from fallen trees."

    but he released about 50 perfumes all at once!

    He didn't release 50 at once, Fueguia is a house based in Argentina and they have been operating for quite a while, I remember a while ago that Steve from ScentBar showed me Ballena de La Pampa and it was a really nice ambergris based perfume.

    I didn't mean 50 released NOW ... I said 50 at once which could be 2 years ago and luckyscent just got some of them now now!

    I tried purchasing a bunch of their samples, almost a year ago. The P&P was excessive, so I challenged them about it. They eventually lowered the rate but it was still a bit pricey.

    I was almost on the verge of ordering when it became apparent that they only accepted credit cards for payment. I don't own a credit card, so we had a problem. After a few more exchanges, and reassurances of reaching some kind of solution, they suddenly went quiet and I never heard from them again. *shrugs*

    I own Ballena de La Pampa and it is beautiful. This is a really nice line with amazing quality notes. I am sure people here will like many of what they have to offer.

    Whole line looks interesting, my money is on: Xocoatl (Vanilla, rum, cocoa); and La Cautiva (Musk, blackcurrant, vanilla) being awesome. But the descriptions of El mono de la Tinto and the passionfruit of Mbucuruya is fascinating.

    Interested in hearing more about this line. If anyone is in NYC, Aedes is going to/is carrying their line. Supposedly they will start shipping orders on May 6th.

    I think the model here is the Bohr atomic model.

    I would like to know more about this line.

    Got several of them:

    Ballena de la Pampa
    Hornero
    Quebracho
    El Mono de la Tinta
    El Otro Tigre
    Caoba
    Magallanes
    Beagle


    And a pack of samples of which I think Thays, Jacarandá, Juan Manuel and Eucalipto are worth mentioning.

    I reviewed some of those listed in the directory, and wrote down some opinions on unlisted ones in my wardrobe, you can read these in this thread

    Just to wrap it up:

    El Mono de la Tinta revolves around cinnamon

    Caoba is a patchouli bomb on the masculine side of things

    El Otro Tigre is a stinky civet bomb: its development might make you think of an adulterous escapade ending up in a commited relationship, for the base notes are floral (tuberose)

    Quebracho is a masculine woody aromatic with a remote analogy to YSL's Jazz

    Magallanes opens with clear aromatic / citric notes morphing into typical masculine basenotes

    Beagle is among my favorites: balmy, a little bit opresive, amazing basenotes... and for those interested, it brings compliments.

    Hornero is the best among them all: descriptors nail it down, you get what it says

    Juan Manuel revolves around rose (a very clear inspiration on Juan Manuel de Rosas, a local governor from the first half of the XIX century. Now, he wasn't the gentler governor around, so I guess the association with roses is a little bit biased. I would have used gunpowder and a distilled drink if I were to create a fragrance after him), the black pepper makes it a masculine - sided sort of rose composition

    Thays opens with osmanthus... hold on, it is in the showroom, but guess what: local fumeheads are still waiting for production

    Jacarandá is a chypre that does not feel like it... interesting

    I will be reviewing these later in the other thread.

    There has been a low but steady buzz about this line for months. Luckyscent had almost secured a deal with the brand a few months ago, but Fuegia wanted to sell LS too many bottles, and the contract fell through. I briefly smelled a sample of something--Ballena de la Pampa I think--and it was interesting, a sort of grape--grain thing. I look forward to smelling them all, and I think the earliest time any of us in the US may smell it is at the Scent Bar next Friday or Saturday morning.

    Aedes in NYC is having a launch event on Monday, May 6th for the line. Hope it meets the hype.

    Ah this whole line is nothing but a synthetic mess of assorted fruits.

    Don't mind me, just trying to lower your expectations as I question if anything ever meets our expectations when hype is involved

    I tried Malena, yesterday, and thought it was wonderful. A citrus and blackcurrant combo, with a clean musk base, that made Mona di Orio's Eau Absolute smell one-dimensional and stale by comparison.

    Btw, there's no UK distributor for this house as yet and, until there is, no UK parfumerie is prepared to stock their creations (the logistics of ordering directly from Fueguia 1833 is, as I have discovered myself, a complete nightmare).

    It seems like Luckyscent's selections are not exactly the same as Aedes'.

    Aedes also doesn't offer the 30ml size and will only ship samples within the US.

    I chased up Fueguia 1833 about their promise of looking into an alternative means of payment but they've backed down on that. If you can't pay by Visa (credit card) or Amex then it's a no go.
