“With Ennui Noir, a fragrance unlike any we've experienced, UNUM invites us to engage with stillness in a daring and mystical new fashion. Boundlessly deep, hypnotically tranquil, this scent seems to possess an elemental potency, deploying sweet, weightless florals, crisp myrtle and a gently smoky cedarwood and vetiver combination that stirs beneath the placid surface...

Perfume As Mirage

"In Oriento Murraciole reconstructs the eternally appealing combination of rose and oud. The result is a feminine fragrance that is unabashedly sultry. At first, Oriento is deeply sweet, almost sparkling in this sugared dimensionality. Lemon is a spike of contrast, a concentrated element that creates an almost gourmand sensation of tangy irresistibility. Saffron's heat singes... Continue Reading →

EP 80: Golden Halcyon Chimera

SMOKESCREEN + SENSIBILITY: Oh. I nearly imploded like one of those Cronenberg heads in Scanners (1981), it was that telepathic a message to my senses. Slumberhouse pleases the most finicky (again).

EP 64: Aquatic Tic-Tac-Toe

This vegan-friendly potion is one that just may stop you in your wake (pun intended). Questionable Motives from the house of Mirus is a double-take, for sure. Imagine communing with manatees right off your favorite coastal spot, just outside of where the sea meets land. AveParfum says: "It’s a fragrance of contrasts that showcases both...

EP 16: In From The North

Something about the Scandanavian wilderness, it's long Winter, and shadowy forests eeks out of the bottle. Norne by Slumberhouse is an intriguing fragrance experience. Where limb and earth come together in something resembling a dream, caught inside a glistening snowglobe, but somehow keeping all limbs protected from the elements. The warming qualities come from an... Continue Reading →
