    Default Audacious by NARS

    I know this isn't out yet, but I am looking forward to smelling it since the perfumer is Olivia Giacobetti.

    First fragrance from NARS (besides those scented body oils). I like the bottle. There is also a video (ad):





    According to Now Smell This:

    French cosmetics and skin care company Nars will celebrate their 25th anniversary this year with Audacious, the brand's first fragrance. Audacious was developed by perfumer Olivia Giacobetti.

    Audacious is a smoky floral inspired by the South Pacific island Motu Tane. The notes include frangipani, ylang ylang, cedar, sandalwood, white musk and incense.

    Nars Audacious will debut in October. The concentration will be Eau de Parfum; I will update with sizes when I can.

    ...

    Update: the description from The Bay in Canada, where Nars Audacious is available in 50 ml...

    Introducing François Nars’ signature fragrance—top notes of White Frangipani and smoke of incense harmonized with Tiare flower and Sandalwood.

    Provocative. Evocative. The new daring sensation. Discover the embodiment of audacity in François Nars’ signature fragrance. Designed as an abstract study of contrasts, top notes of White Frangipani and smoke of incense harmonize with Tiare flower and Sandalwood to arouse an aura that is uniquely minimal, modern, and unexpected. Light meets dark. Sensuality meets individuality. An eau to expression.

    No one at the NARS counter knew anything about this when I asked. Didn't surprise me.

    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.

    Thank you, looking at the noses a No from me, I really dislike frangipani!

    Love the lipsticks though.

    They have a killer monoï oil that I like very much. I'd love to get my nose on this.

    I asked in my local SpaceNK who have a Nars counter and the brand one of their top sellers about the perfume.

    They had never heard of it. But in the daily mail online today it is mentioned as one of the three new fragrances just out for Autumn.

    So it is a Harrods exclusive and £125

    So Harrod's has this for sale? I thought it wasn't released until October.

    £125 for 50ml? Yikes. That's a bit steep.

    I placed an order on the Nars site for a few items and they are sending me a sample vial. I almost bought it blindly, but starting to learn my lesson about that. Lots of resales on ebay. lol. Will update next week when order arrives.
