Synopsi about fragrances from The Fragrance Bar @ MOCAD
This is the smell of smoky chocolate combined with hot winter oranges. The fire has already blazed and we are now in the opulent smolder, a luxurious time where the fire need not be quenched but continues emitting the most even heat.
A fragrance suitable for men or women, this unique blend of chamomile and green notes refreshes and soothes, like a cooling cloth on a feverish brow.
A firm crisp Granny Smith apple leads the way. All the 20-something girls working jobs to pay the rent are longing for the time when mom still packed their lunch: pb&j, apple and cookie. Those are the girls that love this fragrance. Its aspiration matches their own. Prime cleanly covers the scent of the dank apartment and adds sparkle to the day.
This fragrance plays it safe. It will not offend, it will not provoke. The diplomatic play of fruit head notes, classical heart notes with a solid base are serviceable, but bland.
If Watson's ginger ale could yield it's refreshment quality to a perfume this would be the one. This elegant interpretation of green tea is combined with a fig leaf and Italian bergamot yielding a fragrance that is green while remaining soft, clean without becoming antiseptic, and uplifting yet firmly grounded. A true feat!
The warm liquid vanilla is perfectly tempered against sandalwood and peach. This formidable fragrance provides us with a refuge from the overworked sweet confections that often occur when leading with vanilla.
This fragrance comes alive when blended with others, Honor for example. On its own it is lackluster, but in combination the amber vetiver and pepper come alive and add a unique dimension.
This fragrance is a cathedral complete with flying buttresses, shafts of sunlight, and cold marble floor. The powdery floral notes vault towards heaven, but come falling back to earth.
This is what a teen-age girl wants to smell like: clean, predictable and fruity with a cotton candy note. A fragrance that will make sure you blend into THE crowd.
Sugar & Spice
And everything nice... This simple fragrance of vanilla musk and lemon verbena strikes the perfect balance between sweet and saccharin, cloying and effervescent. Go try it on and be surprised!
A modern patchouli: This is for the successful hippie, now a multi-millionaire. It is elegance and refinement with the memory of Woodstock abandonment.
This is what you want your man wearing. It tells the complete story of cross-country skiing. The sunlight, the cardinal burst of red in the tree, the sound of your ski cutting in the track, and that slight aroma of wet wool and body odor are all contained in the green tea and black current, bergamot and sandalwood. A new note has been added in its latest incarnation that throws the idea of a beach vacation, somehow not amiss in this winter wonderland. It's the best of all worlds.
Adeptly named, this is a giant continent, a huge expanse of dirt. The solid presentation of a strong earthy note is unique and those that take the time to understand this fragrance will love it.
