Top 10 Winter Fragrances 2019
We have had a cold dry winter which is unlike our Norm. I do find myself reaching deep into my juices and pulling out the stuff that’s going to warm me up. This list also let’s me showcase some of my deeper dives in my collection that one hundred percent are my top cold weather dives.
Deep Cold, Cold Weather Dark Juice.
NORNE, SOVA, SIXES AND SEVENS Slumberhouse:
Norne is available again. Josh is very random on releasing othere, but they appear. As quickly as they do that they are vanished. It’s a trust relationship with the perfumer. A one man show that goes and comes as he pleases. Truly showing what the Portland way is all about. Many have avoided the 9 – 5 grind and excel in very specific areas. Easy for me to get on board, because I love all things Portland is about.
Barrister and Mann Fougère Aromatique Eau de Toilette:
To that end, we at Barrister and Mann took on the challenge to build just such a scent: an all-natural fougère made with oakmoss, tonka bean, and hay absolute, a smell akin to liquid sunshine. We combined these rich materials with the finest French lavender, then rounded out the base with fruity, earthy patchouli and musty, chocolate-y mushroom. From there, we continued to refined our work, eventually producing two distinctly different fragrances.
Indolis Areej Le Dore:(Only mentioned to reference against future collections and remakes)
This is one of those that really set Areej apart from everything else in the market. I am going to read the notes below, but there more than notes. In this bottle it is like smelling them in there environments. This is gorgeous juice. Unexplainablle unless you smell it is knockout gorgeous juice. He breaks away from all tradition of eastern perfume and becomes his own perfumer in this bottle for me. This is the creativity I want to see from Russian Adam this is like that hit song that just comes together and is played throughout generations. This is what pushing perfumery forward is all about. Look at the color.
Top notes: Indonesian jasmine enfleurage, gardenia and jasmine absolute
Heart notes: green hojary frankincense; ginger, lime, tangerine and
pineapple, co-distilled by Russian Adam
Base notes: Indonesian green sandal and wild Australian sandal, both
distilled by Russian Adam; benzoin, tonka bean absolute, oakmoss
resinoid and Indian galbanum; Chinese green tea extract from a 100
year old tree, and lavender absolute, both crafted by Russian Adam
LE MAT Mendittorosa:
Promise review is coming this has started to make a lot of lists for good reason. A story of Immortelle it is the star in the fragrance. Even though most people list rose as the prominent noter referring to fragrantica hands down it is the Immortelle that owns the show. Quite a show it is. This is the fragrance you want to have on when you are dancing the night away with your beloved.
Xerjoff Warda Al Oud:
This is strong medicinal oud with amber and vanilla love. You will not run from the Amber and V
