In autumn, the time has come for many of us revisit your perfume wardrobe and wrap yourself up in fragrances that are appropriate for the season. Well-known and not so famous brands do not skimp on new items, and sometimes it is easy to get lost in the choice. At our request, perfume critic Ksenia Golovanova has selected for us the best fragrances from those that you are unlikely to find out about from popular sources.

Adjatay: Cuir Narcotique

The Different Company

In perfumery, tuberose has firmly established itself at the top of the food chain and will easily "gobble" any note that is weak in spirit. The flower's reputation is generally quite nasty: in Victorian England, unmarried girls were forbidden to sniff tuberose, whose scent allegedly caused unauthorized orgasms, and our Silver Age decided that it was "pernicious" and "vampire". A little more about the latter: tuberose, if you smell it, really gives off fresh blood, and also rubber and menthol. Only a perfumery accord of similar strength and complexity can go exactly with her in the same team, and in Adjatay it was found - this is leather with balsamic and animal tones, the inside of the jacket of a guy who rode a motorcycle all night with flowers in his bosom.

Efflor_esce

Nomenclature

In April of this year, the young brand Nomenclature showed four fragrances at the Exsence perfume fair in Milan, the most striking of which was Efflor_esce. It is based on paradizon, a molecule with a voluminous and fresh scent of flowers, moreover, non-local, luminescent flowers: this is how a radioactive bouquet could smell for a cosmic opera diva from The Fifth Element. Paradison has been used in perfumery as a special effect before, for example, in Iris Prima by the British brand Penhaligon's or in Acqua di Gio Essenza, but here it is brought to the fore and shines in every sense.

Grand soir

Maison francis kurkdjian

Rumor has it that Grand Soir was made to replace Absolue Pour Le Soir - catchy and defiant, like the heroine Sigourney Weaver from the old "Ghostbusters", which was possessed by an ancient Babylonian demon. At first glance, Grand Soir is about something completely different: it is an elegant amber scent. It is based on a warm balsamic accord of labdanum, benzoin, vanilla and tonka beans. The scent is similar to what amber could have if it had a pronounced scent: thick, sweet, frozen in time, like a prehistoric moth in resin. And yet, something dangerous smolders here at the bottom, as if the performed rite of exorcism simply drove all the evil spirits deeper - there is an unkind fire in the Grand Soir, but it is reliably sealed in an ancient stone.

Secrets du Paradis Rouge

Jul et Mad

The new fragrance for Jul et Mad was made by the Italian Luca Maffei, a rising star in perfumery. At the just past perfume exhibition Pitti Fragranze in Florence, several of his compositions were shown at once, including a couple of very good ones for the Laboratorio Olfattivo brand (they will soon appear in the Moscow Aromatek). The “red paradise” declared in the name is Marrakech, where the creators of the brand Julien and Madalina spent their honeymoon, and the “secrets” are not secrets at all, at least for those who have been to Morocco. Paradis Rouge smells like orange blossom and amla, a sweet paste of honey, argan oil and crushed almonds. The aroma is sweet, but its sweetness is truly Moroccan, exemplary - in short, there is no reason not to try this honey gingerbread.

Fleurs et flammes

Antonio Alessandria

Fleurs et Flammes were first shown at last year's Pitti Fragranze, but they were brought to Moscow quite recently, so we will consider this fragrance new. "Flowers and lights" are swirling around a lily that was left in a small room on a summer night. The owners went to watch the fireworks on the embankment, and from there, from the sea, gunpowder was drawn through the windows: in the southern stuffiness, floral scents mixed with mineral smells. It turned out to be very sultry, pungent and slightly disturbing - it still smells of fire - an aroma that is definitely not suitable for conversations at the cooler and in line for a set lunch. Wear it on weekends when the surrounding area is yours.

OR ± Cashmere

Uermi

The Italian brand Uermi uses an interesting concept - imaginary fabric smells.It is also interesting for its obvious exhaustion: what will happen after all the known types of textiles run out? And this will happen, apparently, soon, since Uermi have taken a vigorous start - the collection already contains scents of silk, suede, denim, velvet, tweed and latex. The new "Cashmere" will be the happiness of any kinesthetic: here you have nut candy, rum, and an amber accord - everything feels warm, soft and beige-golden. It is worn very easily, like a good turtleneck, and in the same way it can become the basis of a small but efficient wardrobe - perfumery.

Fauni

Angela ciampagna

Angela Champagna is very noticeable at perfumery exhibitions: thickly lined eyes, heavy-rimmed glasses, dark red, almost rusty curls. The perfumer resembles one of the witches' aunts in Practical Magic, and her aromas are appropriate - thick, viscous infusions impenetrable to light. Rather healthy than tasty: smoky Ignes protects from fire, tart Aer berries drive spiritual bile, aniseed Liquo protects good dreams. But the new Fauni is a love potion made of ylang-ylang and gardenia, which, unlike the gloomy neighbors in the collection, came out radiant and transparent, like a drop of resin in the sun.
