    Default NEW: Masque Milano - Times Square and Mandala!

    From NST:





    Italian niche brand Masque Milano has launched two new fragrances, Times Square and Mandala.


    Times Square ~ developed by perfumer Bruno Jovanovic. "New York stinks. It stinks of cheap harsh tobacco and dense exhaust gas.

    The traffic jam seems endless.And stinks of hot rubber and stale steam.

    People are weird.

    The fashionista lady with the glowing-green stilettos orders a huge pretzel.

    And stinks of lurid street-food of any sort.

    Cinnamon and fries.

    Mustard and caramel.

    The cherry of the whore's bloody-red lipstick melts with the strawberry of her chewing-gum.

    The side alleys are just garbage and urine.

    But find your way through the crowd of bachelorettes waiting for the male-strip show, and it will be a flood of tuberose and carnation.

    I feel like having a walk tonight.

    Go get my crab cakes and a burger.

    And breathe the city miasmas while reaching the place.

    Oh I love this city. How do I love it."

    With hazelnut accord, glossy lipstick accord, osmanthus, tuberose, sandalwood, gaiacwood and styrax.




    Mandala ~ developed by perfumer Christian Carbonnel.

    "Light, rarefied air. Utter silence.

    Cows lazily lying on the grass stare at you, while you start spinning the prayer wheels.

    From the monastery comes the monks’ overtone singing - two notes chanting in perfect, peaceful harmony.

    A myrrh and incense fragrance - light and delicate.

    A contemplative atmosphere.

    Vibrating at two levels at the same time.

    " With frankincense, nutmeg, angelica, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, cistus, cedar, incense, myrrh, sandalwood, oakmoss and natural ambergris.



    Masque Milano Times Square and Mandala can be found now at Luckyscent, $165 each for 35 ml Eau de Parfum.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    The description for Times Square sounds...revolting.

    I thought the 'New York' theme is already long in the tooth.

    But I'm always up for a contemplative incense.

    As camorr was saying, "sandalwood, oakmoss, and natural ambergris" is a wishful fantasy.

    I really respect the perfumes from Masque so far. Their scents are a bit avant-garde but always of very good quality. L'Attesa and Romanza are both very good and previous releases too have many admirers as well as detracters. The house reminds me of Frederic Malle in some ways. I look forward to smelling these two new releases.
    1. Epic Man by Amouage (33 wears)
    2. Leather Oud by Christian Dior (31 wears)
    3. M7 by Yves Saint Laurent (27 wears)
    4. Oud Imperial (black) by Perris Monte Carlo (22 wears)
    5. Russian Tea Ritual by Masque (20 wears)
    6. Fate Man by Amouage (19 wears)

    Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    Revisited my sample of Mandala. The green note that runs thru Masque's frags is married to incense. Pretty nice!
