WHAT'S IN THE BOX

Atelier Materi

Cuir d'Iris

Cuir d'Iris

Cuir d'Iris

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY: WOODY FLORAL
TOP NOTES: red mandarin, petitgrain, mandarin, allspice
HEART NOTES: pink pepper, iris, suede
BASE NOTES: balsam, sandalwood, leather musk

 

The iris note at the heart of this fragrance is lilac-y, violet-y, powdery perfection; it is featherlight mauve and primrose flowers translucent with dusty warmth; the most delicate iris scent imaginable, heightened by butter-soft suede, comforting balsam and warm, leathery woods. Put it this way: if this fragrance were a piece of clothing, it could only be a world-class cashmere onesie. X

Atelier Materi

Peau d'Ambrette

Peau d'Ambrette

Peau d'Ambrette

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:  MUSKY WOODY
TOP NOTES:  mandarin, ginger
HEART NOTES:  ambrette, angelica, amyris
BASE NOTES:  musk, sandalwood, Ambroxan

 

The first introductions of sweet mandarin, peppy ginger and, yes, angelic angelica paint a picture of an optimistic, well-behaved scent. That soon yields to ambrette, followed closely by skin-like musk, softly warm Ambroxan and spiced sandalwood, the combination of which brings an unexpected and frankly pretty explosive sensuality to this fragrance. Don’t say you haven’t been warned… X

Atelier Materi

Santal Blond

Santal Blond

Santal Blond

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:  WOODY ORIENTAL
TOP NOTES:  bergamot, cardamom
HEART NOTES:  jasmine, sandalwood
BASE NOTES:  hinoki wood, tonka bean

 

This is an exciting interpretation of the deliciously rich, milky-soft wood note, sandalwood. An extremely clever balance of the intriguing and the bewitching (think ribbons of smoke rising up, creating a veil between the real and the fantastical, keeping secrets hidden), alongside the reassuring. Bergamot and jasmine, fresh and beautiful, keep us sensorially grounded in the vitality and light of the real world. X

Juliette Has A Gun

Lipstick Fever

Lipstick Fever

Lipstick Fever

5ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:   FRUITY FLORAL
TOP NOTES:  raspberry, violet
HEART NOTES:  iris, patchouli
BASE NOTES:  cedarwood, vanilla

 

Juicy raspberry greets us, tempting us to take a bite, followed by an almost-edible violet note, whose powdery virtues are swiftly compounded by the arrival of softest iris. Patchouli and vanilla then finish the fragrance off with a voluptuous, gourmand quality that whispers of the woman who wears this fragrance – a seductive and worldly Parisienne who knows precisely what she wants. X

Creed

Aventus

Aventus

Aventus

FAMILY:  CHYPRE FRUITY
TOP NOTES:  bergamot, blackcurrant, pineapple, apple
HEART NOTES:  birch, patchouli, juniper, jasmine
BASE NOTES:  musk, oakmoss, vanilla, ambergris

 

 

Sensual, audacious and contemporary, this rich and iconic eau de parfum combines tantalising fruity head notes of Calville Blanc apple, blackcurrant, pineapple and Italian bergamot with complementary fresh and floral jasmine blossom, birch, juniper berries and patchouli. Rounding off this bold and elegant fragrance is the woody base notes of musk, oakmoss and a touch of vanilla. The classic sophistication of Aventus celebrates strength, power, success and heritage – perfect for the discerning gentleman. X

Creed

Aventus Cologne

2.5ml eau de Cologne

FAMILY: FRESH AROMATIC
TOP NOTES:  ginger, mandarin, pink peppercorn
HEART NOTES:  patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver
BASE NOTES:  styrax, birch, musk, tonka beans

A fruity yet aromatic burst of ginger, mandarin and pink peppercorn is complemented by a sumptuous heart of patchouli, sandalwood and vetiver. A leathery balsamic base of styrax, birch, musk and tonka provides the final touch to this vibrant new scent. A cult classic with a rebellious modern twist, Aventus Cologne embodies vitality, success, true grit and style. X

Creed

Aventus For Her

Aventus For Her

Aventus For Her

2ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:   FLORAL FRUITY
TOP NOTES:  bergamot, violet, green apple, blackcurrant, mandarin
HEART NOTES:  rose, patchouli, sandalwood, iris, jasmine
BASE NOTES:  peach, amber, ylang ylang, vanilla

 

Opulent and sensual, this fruity floral scent opens with accords of crisp succulent green apple blended with violet leaf, fragrant pink pepper and the sparkle of Calabrian bergamot. The middle notes are a bouquet of rose, styrax and sandalwood from Mysore. The rich tenacious base includes peach, cassis, ylang ylang and amber. An olfactory celebration of vibrant and passionate femininity, Aventus for Her echoes the power, vision and success of the bestselling masculine Aventus. X

Maison Francis Kurkdjian

L'Homme À La Rose

L'Homme À La Rose

L'Homme À La Rose

5ml eau de parfum

FAMILY:  WOODY FLORAL
TOP NOTES:  Damask rose, grapefruit
HEART NOTES:  cistus, Centifolia rose
BASE NOTES:  amber woods, sage

In L’Homme À La Rose, Kurkdjian has created a clean, clear rose fragrance that is nuanced, multi-dimensional, and accessible to absolutely everyone. It begins in the realm of fresh, juicy fruity rose, all plump and delicious, segueing beautifully into a deeper, warmer, woodier rose, whose sensuality is underscored by a herbaceous, amber-y base accord. X

Ramon Monegal

Flamenco

Flamenco

Flamenco

10ml eau de parfum

FAMILY: FLORAL FRUITY
TOP NOTES:  raspberry, orange blossom, strawberry
HEART NOTES:  rose, jasmine, cedarwood, sandalwood
BASE NOTES:  saffron, amber, musk

 

A fragrance inspired by the famous Andalusian art of flamenco makes perfect sense. A bright, energetically staccato start in the form of juicy, blossom-infused red berries. This sets the scene for the impassioned heart of the dance; beguiling rose and jasmine mix with milky-smoky-warm woods to create a depth of feeling that tells of intense love tinged with sorrow, compounded by a spicy, skin-scented dramatic dry-down. X

Maison Crivelli

Iris Malikhân

Iris Malikhân

Iris Malikhân

1.5ml eau de parfum

FAMILY: WOODY FLORAL
TOP NOTES:  cypress, mastic
HEART NOTES:  orris, mimosa
BASE NOTES:  amber, leather

This fragrance is a fusion of opposites and surprises. Resinous beginnings make us feel sure we’re going in a green direction – yes, a fresh, piney, green direction. Definitely. But what’s this? Soft-powdery orris and sweet-powdery mimosa, the green facets of mimosa making for a seamless handover. So, by the time we get to the amber-leather dry down, we’re no longer surprised at how tame the leathery note is under the mesmerising spell of perfume creator and Maison Crivelli founder, Thibaud Crivelli. X

Maison Crivelli

Papyrus Moléculaire

Papyrus Moléculaire

Papyrus Moléculaire

1.5ml eau de parfum

FAMILY: WOODY FLORAL
TOP NOTES: coriander, carrot seed
HEART NOTES:  amyris, sandalwood
BASE NOTES:  papyrus, tonka bean, tobacco

A clever combination of carrot seed, coriander and earthy, ancient papyrus. The result is fascinating – in equal measure timeless and modern; smoky and light-filled; strong and soft-edged. The fragrance was, in fact, inspired by the introduction of papyrus root powder, as a fragrance ingredient – but also by the notion of women smoking small cigars. X

Maison Crivelli

Santal Volcanique

Santal Volcanique

Santal Volcanique

1.5ml eau de parfum

FAMILY: WOODY SPICY
TOP NOTES:  ginger, lime
HEART NOTES:  sandalwood
BASE NOTES:  spicy coffee, cedarwood

Spicy and explosive ginger grabs our attention, piqued with a little effervescent lime, which together ensure we’re fully engaged. Why? So that we don’t miss a second of the charred sandalwood that then comes to the fore of course, in all its smoky, milky, evocative wonderfulness. Cedarwood and coffee then keep everything rumbling along in a treacle-y dry down – a fragrance that is as intense as it is ingenious in our opinion. X
