Today I want to tell you about two fragrance launches that really caught my attention.
Freak by Illamasqua is one of my favourite fragrances, so I am very excited about the newest variation – Freak Scarab.
- Top Notes: Blood Orange, Neroli Absolute and Ylang Ylang awaken and entice the senses.
- Heart Notes: Davana Oil entwines with Egyptian Jasmine, Honeysuckle and Queen of the Night to form a sensual heart.
- Base Notes: The warmth of Stewed Plum creates a distant depth, leading to the rich ancient accord of Mousse de Sax – Geranium, Anise, Moss and Leather.
The price is £85 for 75 ml, and I can’t wait to try it.
As for Maison Martin Margiela, the brand brought out a fragrance line Replica which
I already shared my impression about the original Rouge Bunny Rouge Fragrances but I am actually even more excited about their new collection – Provenance Tales.
There are three fragrances which come in beautiful dark glassed bottles and are marketed as unisex. That is right up my street!
“Born from the joy of preternatural harmonies and infused with the forest’s mantle of wisdom and calm, Silvan blissfully simmers on the skin, being smoothly melded and beautifully refined. ”
Notes: aromatic juniper berries, sparkling grapefruit, guaiac wood, smoky incense, vibrant black pepper, patchouli, cedarwood.
“Flooding throughout the fragrance with the fizz and hiss of escaping vapour, Cynefin unexpectedly draws back the veil of the everyday to bestow an overwhelming sense of joy. ”
Regular readers probably know that my favourite mainstream scent is Paco Rabanne Black XS, I even got my brother a matching one for his Birthday.
And, although I don’t wear it that much any more, as these days I am interested in different (more niche) brands, this fragrance awakes a lot of beautiful memories and I still like it.
This is why I am actually excited about the new Black XS L’Aphrodisiaque release for women and men.
The design is right up my street and the promo photos make me curious. I will definitely take a look at both when I get a chance and, hopefully, they won’t disappoint.
