    Default New Bois 1920 Cannabis Collection

    not one but two new scents that look like they might be tastefully done cannabis frags, for a change. would be great to get some impressions on these, anyone else interested?

    lifted from Fragrantica article https://www.fragrantica.com/news/ESX...ses-12158.html

    'The Florentine perfume house born at the beginning of last century has been steadily growing in its influence over the years, releasing extremely memorable scents with curious modern twists. This year is no exception - their new offerings are a pair of intensely aromatic, herbal, spacious perfumes: Cannabis and Cannabis Fruttata. Canabis is nearly a soliflore (its only other notes are patchouli and light woods.) Intense, green, forested, leafy, but airy, aromatic, penetrating. Canabis Fruttata changes the game, but just a small bit: It takes nearly the same backbone as Cannanbis, but adds some striking accompaniments: oregano, rosemary, fig leaves, blueberry, muguet, ambergris, and cedar wood. It’s a “rounder” and slightly brighter wearing experience, but is also a fascinating smell-study next to it’s sister, the original. Truly original and well-crafted perfumes that would love to be worn.'

    Cannabis

    A fragrance that defies the traditional rules reinterpreting them with a modern twist. The greatest expression of the Cannabis buds, a debut of pureness, a voluptuous heart for a piercing, slightly impudent perfume.

    OLFACTORY PYRAMID:

    Top: Cannabis.

    Heart: Cannabis,Patchouly

    Dry down: Legni Chiari, Cannabis.

    Cannabis fruttata

    Seductive, soft, involving composition that symbolizes an unusual olfactory journey where the fruity senses of Blueberry, enhanced by an amber shade, awaken a unique and surprising sensorial experience.

    Top: Origan, Rosemary, Fig leaves.

    Heart: Cannabis, Blueberry, Lily of the valley.

    Dry down: Patchouly, Ambergris, Cedarwood.

    Definitely interested! As a fan both of green fragrances and of cannabis, it'd be nice to see the note done right.

    agree. i think the trick with this note/plant is to tread the line between something actually smelling like cannabis and adding some interesting elements to make it more wearable. so much potential but i'm yet to smell anything that's done it right. for example Mancera's Hindu Kush smells nice enough but it barely smells like cannabis and certainly not Hindu Kush after which it's named, an extremely pungent OG landrace variety. it's just a nondescript sweetish green scent with floral nuances.

    actual well cultivated cannabis has all sorts of things going on - green, floral, spicy, pungent, fruity even. you'd think it'd the perfect plant to draw on for inspirations in perfumery. i'm quite interested in these because they aren't shying away from cananbis itself which looks to be the lead note. especially the second release that has a blueberry note in there, another legendary strain itself known for it's fruity scent. not just a random note thrown in.

    Like wine notes or tea notes in scents, I suspect any cannabis fans will always be disappointed by how one dimensional the note is in fragrances, unless they start to use terpenes and extractions from the actual buds they claim to represent, but there are obvious issues with that due to differences in legality in different markets.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Doesn’t sound appealing. I should wait to try before I judge, but the going off the notes it kind of reminds me of what indie niche perfumery was like before the turn of the last decade, when everyone was experimenting with smashed-together, rough-edged compositions, searching for new ground.

    Also, does anyone actually want to smell like dank bud?

    I like the more creative """cannabis""" note in Kinski though. Very green and animalic; not so much weed.

    Finally something interesting! Cannabis seems pretty hard to replicate the accord, or with a single cannabis note. In most cases it's just a hefty dose of dirty patchouli, which can smell like cannabis sometimes. Regardless, these both look fantastic, I will be trying both. Fingers crossed for an actual authentic smelling marijuana note.

    Same! Curious to try this. Even cannabis itself has a dizzying array of mutually exclusive note possibilities... skunky, seaweed-like, tropical fruity, sage-piney... I don’t think adding terpenes would quite work - it’s the equivalent of OJ concentrate vs fresh-squeezed. Seems like hash would be easier to replicate since it’s got a kind of rich/dark incense smell.

    These look interesting, I must admit. I am not a user, but I like the smell of the plant.

    I think MM Replica Music Festival is a nice blend of cannabis and patchouli. I imagine that those who partake would probably like that fragrance. It's supposed to be evocative of the smells you would find at Woodstock, and I imagine that's probably what it smelled like.

    Music Festival was an interesting one but another dud personally. Didn't smell much like cannabis, did have a green sort of note but was totally overpowered by a sweetness that dominated the scent which smelled more like strawberries. A hippy sort of strawberry smell i guess but sickly sweet to my nose.

    I can't say that I disagree with your assessment of it being very sweet, but I like sweet fragrances, so I find it enjoyable. For those that like drier fragrances, you may not enjoy this as much.

    I personally do not see the need to smell like weed. Even as somebody who loves cannabis I would never buy a fragrance that had it as a note.

    I wonder if you got pulled over with weed you could keep a bottle of this on you to try to explain the smell

    Agreed. Really lame, especially for what it was trying to convey.

    I wouldn't mind giving this a sniff, although the fruity one probably wouldn't please me.

    Bois 1920 has a fairly boring Patchouly so I doubt either of these would be my cup of tea.

    As others have mentioned, we've yet to see a really good cannabis perfume where the note is highlighted and smells authentic. Some things I like

    Kinski
    Blackbird/Black no 1 by House of Matriarch
    Coze

    Some things I'm indifferent about

    Hindu Kush by Mancera
    Black Afgano by Nasomotto

    And some things I quite dislike

    Cannabis Flower by Demeter
    Music Festival by Maison Martin Margiela

    You'll often see the note in those online perfumed oils, but most of them smell crude and poorly done.

    To each their own. I find the smell of marijuana intoxicating, and I would love to smell like it. I am particularly drawn to dirty, earthy, and green fragrances though. A police officer can not arrest and book someone based off of smelling like marijuana, just like they can't do it for someone just smelling like alcohol. There are standards tests to give as well as looking at lack of motor skills, and body language, seeing if eyes are red, etc. Besides, marijuana is pretty much legal everywhere in the US now, to some degree. Unless you are smoking blunts while walking down the street or hitting the bong, you're probably not gonna be arrested for casually smoking it or trigger any radars for smelling like it.

    I'd like to see a set of mix-and-match single-note fragrances - maybe they would be based around individual terpenes, I don't know, like a kind of Escentric Canna-molecules. It would be interested to try to isolate some of the various component aromachemicals - fruity, skunky, earthy, etc - so that you could mix and match skunk with fruity berry, or lemon with pine, etc. It seems like that would be the best way to let people experience their own conception of what "cannabis" smells like, given its many variations.

    I get a sort of dry herbal grassiness from it, vaguely reminscent of opening a bag of pot. More like an impression of marijuana smell rather than the actual smell itself.

    I probably wouldn't want to wear a fragrance that's trying to replicate the smell of weed, because I don't like perfumes to be that literal-minded. But as a note or accord surrounded by complementary notes, I think it has a lot of potential. As people have mentioned, depending on strain, it can have lots of different facets: conifers, citrus, musk, herbs, etc.

    True, but smelling like weed in your car is a sure way to have the officer want to search you and arrest you. It's still not legal in much of the US, including Texas where I live

    If I wanted to smell like weed I would just smoke it!

    I guess I can see that. I still have my Kinski decant, that I see no need to ever use. Though it's more of an animallic, musky fragrance than anything to my nose.

    The smell of smoked weed lingering on your skin/clothes is completely different than the smell of it unsmoked imo. For example, Sour Diesel smells like motor oil, while Blue Dream smells like blueberries. 2 completely different smells in raw form, but when smoked, and the smell lingers on you, it just kind of makes you smell like a dirty ashtray, with a hint of skunky goodness.
