Top 5 florals for Spring brought to you by Areej Le Dore
As I search for florals this is no hype you can’t compare anything on the market period to these. No hyperbole. If you are looking for what florals are this is the Apex as of now. The ingredients that are being used are Olympic level. I have talked about this and will continue until something beats these out. But if you are looking for a melting experience that transports you to the very earth these flowers came from here it is. You are not going to get a mass mall airotic accord fournd everywhere you are getting the real deal. I have tried to look, I have reviewed in masses this is where it’s at. There are other brands that are doing very good compositions, but not playing with the same raw material. Just the smell from the botle is enough.
I will push Russian Adam as far as he can go. He hasn’t even shown us his peak and that’s scary to think about. In each collection you can start to see an accord he is making to become his own that is carrying these even further. Right now this is letting the best of the best ingredients speak for themselves. A thing James Beard winning chefs have learned.
If he puts Oud in the name of his works people flock to those and i am guilty, but I found a much greater treasurer. He is an oud master don’t hear me wrong, I have well reviewed many of his distillations here. But he is the floral King above and beyond anything else. He is bring florals to perfumery like I have never smelled. I am not versed in vintage perfumery, but very well versed in what is on the market today. The apex is here and I want to climb it with him, because I too am all about reaching the top.
Started it all. Only bought it because it was the one of only two available when I became aware of house. And I was introduced that flowers can be mean, dirty, animalic, and I love it. I love wearing it and I love seeing all the sassiness play out during the wear.
The composition opens with the rarest, most costly jasmine extract known to man: Indonesian jasmine enfleurage. Delicate, soft and virginal… yet with an indolic, almost animalic touch… this enfleurage represents the scent that is closest to the true aroma of a night-blooming jasmine flower. It is further boosted with distilled oil of gardenia blossoms. Wild, piercing and even more animalic, this adds unmatchable layers to the top notes. Sharp, Indonesian jasmine absolute and soft neroli from Tunisia provide a foundation for the bouquet of top notes, causing them to last and shine through the entire composition.
The heart of this perfume was not only blended, but co-distilled, by Russian Adam. Pineapple, ginger, lime and tangerine were placed together into a single boiler and cooked, allowing the essences to be released and infused into one another, bringing to life a totally unique aroma. It was then blended with rare Omani, green hojary frankincense, distilled by Russian Adam, using water from the Alp Mountains. Alpine water, with its minerals and unique chemical composition, contribute an unmistakable signature. Pristine, crystal clear, airy and fresh, it makes the delicate scent of green hojary frankincense even softer, purer and more refined.
I only put this on very occasionally but it is my most opened attar by a long shot. I am now
