The Best Fall Perfume releases continue on in October 2012
Marchesa, the partnership between Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, launched its first perfume in 2012. Marchesa Parfum D’Extase, created by perfumer Annie Buzantian, opens with subtle florals, iris at the crux of the scent’s richness, followed by an intoxicating woodiness that adds complexity to this fragrance’s simple beauty. Notes of iris, star anise, black currant, violet, jasmine, rose water, orange blossom, lotus flower, ambrox, and muscenone compose this perfume.
Miller Harris came out with a series of limited edition fragrances inspired by the iconic scent of La Fumée. The first in the series, La Fumée Arabie, evokes the sensuality of the exotic woods of the Middle East, and celebrates the magic and beauty of the Arabic cultures. This smoky, spicy, smoldering eau de parfum is great for both men and women. Opening notes consist of cistus absolute, cardamom, coriander seed, Egyptian cumin, incense from the Yemen, Moroccan cedar, and birch tar. With air getting crisper, this will be one of the bets fall perfume releases.
Inspiration for Parfumerie Generale DjHenné came from the city of Djenne in Mali, which is surrounded by verdant greenery, and a flowing river, that soak up the powerful African sunrays all day long. The unisex fragrance symbolizes a restful break in the tempting shade. Based on woody and light leather notes, this scent includes aromas of mint leaves, syringe flowers, and grey lavender. Middle tones incorporate cacao beans and blue cedar, closing with base notes of wheat absolute and myrrh. This eau de parfum is enigmatic and full of contradictions. Another of the best fall perfume releases.
Pear and Olive is the newest creation from Slumberhouse, a boutique label from Portland, Oregon, formed by a group of young men interested in artistic endeavors such as urban street culture, art, film, and music—especially hiphop and graffiti. They encompass realness in their style and illustrate a disregard for trends, gimmicks, and marketing clichés. Pear and Olive is an awesome mix of ethereal pear skin with a soft touch of dew, sweet olive tincture, Roman chamomile, bitter grape tissue from French white cognac oil, zdravets, and the rare aglaia absolute. To top it off, massoia bark and calamus absolute were added to provide a trace of creamy loveliness. Yum!
Celebrating the 20th birthday of Thierry Mugler perfumes, Thierry Mugler will be launching a new limited edition collection of Les Parfums de Cuir (The Fragrances of Leather). New interpretations of the four renowned fragrances, A*Men, Angel, Alien, and Womanity, were created by taking the original compositions and soaking them in leather tanks for four weeks; this concept combining the art of haute perfumery and the traditional craft of glove-making.
A*Men Pure Leather maintains the fiery A*Men classic scent while infusing it with sexy top notes of leather, bergamot, helional, lavender, and peppermint; middle notes include coffee bean, patchouli, lavender, and tar; base notes are delicious vanilla, caramel, tonka bean, chocolate, and musk. Mmmm…
Angel Leather is the same aromatic tastiness of the original Angel, but now enriched with an erotic leathery sexiness. Leather, dark chocolate, and patchouli are the main components of this fragrance, with top notes of mandarin and bergamot; middle notes of peach, apricot, passion fruit; base notes of vanilla and caramel. Double yum! Thierry Mugler does some great things with these adaptations, the best flankers anywhere. These are sure to be some of the best fall perfume new releases.
Tom Ford Noir is Tom Ford’s second signature scent. This masculine fragrance has an oriental twist, opening with an earthly array of richly woven saffron, black truffle and black rose, with notes of nutmeg, black pepper, bergamot, verbena, caraway, pink pepper, violet, clary sage, vanilla, Tuscan iris, geranium, Indonesian patchouli, opoponax, civet, and vetiver oil. Moss and oud wood serve to soften the intensity, allowing the fragrance carnal equilibrium, offering stimulation and delight to the wearer.
