Guidance 46

AMOUAGE | GUIDANCE 46

 

“Enthralling and beguiling, Guidance 46 Exceptional Extrait is a study in light and shade, fragility and strength, subtlety and ostentatiousness – paradoxes brought together with an immediacy that can be achieved only by the art of perfumery. Dosed at a staggering 46% concentration. Perfumer: Quentin Bisch. A madly gifted artist, at once painter, singer, writer and perfumer, Quentin Bisch is a genius of the trade whose talent lies in an unquenched thirst for beauty and his ability to reinvent his art through bold and yet grateful statements.Top Notes: Pear, Frankincense, Hazelnut, Rose Water, Pink Pepper, Bitter Almond. Heart Notes: Saffron, Rose, Sambac Jasmine, Osmanthus. Base Notes: Cistus, Sandalwood, Akigalawood, Ambergris, Vanilla, Ambrette, Georgywood, Cypriol.”

 

Desiro

NISHANE | DEZIRO

 

“Embodies the force of Desire, an elemental emotion with the power to shape destinies and forge connections across the unfathomable depths of human experience. The freshness of a Marine Accord blends seamlessly with the coolness of Mint, evoking the sudden, refreshing crash of a wave. Anchoring this exhilarating introduction are notes of Vetiver and Cypriol, drawing from the Earth to provide depth and balance. Star Anise and Sandalwood provide a warm and sweet embrace reminiscent of the sun’s glow on sea-worn sand while Ambrettolide and Carrot Seed introduce a faintly carnal twist, echoing the raw, primal essence of nature’s undirected desires. Designed for those who are drawn to the mysterious depths of relationships and emotion, DEZIRO offers a refreshing yet profound experience that appeals to the adventurous spirit within. TOP NOTES: mandarin – ambergris – marine accord. HEART NOTES: star anise – carrot – mint – cypriol – geranium: BASE NOTES: musk – ambrettolide – sandalwood – haitian vetiver.”

 

A Grove By The Sea

ARQUISTE | A GROVE BY THE SEA

 

“Picture a sunny island in the Adriatic, a small harbor with stone houses and fig and olive groves, surrounded by verdant hills of Mediterranean pine tree, strings of cypress and wild herbs throughout. A window into an evergreen, aromatic landscape of Adriatic fig, dried pine needles, wild rosemary, thyme and the subtle, nutty scent of olive oil. HISTORY: August 1508, Lopud Island, Adriatic Sea. Lopud is an evergreen island with lush fig and olive groves by the sea. From the port, dotted with Renaissance stone villas, the scent of fig and crushed olives is so strong that the salty sea breeze carries it beyond, towards forests of Mediterranean pine and cypress. Above, ancient chapels overlooking the harbor like sentinels are overgrown with wild thyme, fennel and rosemary. The whole landscape an aromatic paradise of green fig, dried pine needles, wild herbs and the subtle, nutty scent of olive oil. Developed with Rodrigo Flores Roux. TOP NOTES: Adriatic fig leaves, Black olive, Fleur de sel accord, Croatian clementine. HEART NOTES: Extra virgin olive oil accord, Ripe fig fruit, Thyme essence, Rosemary essence. BASE NOTES: Mediterranean pine needle, Fir balsam, Mediterranean cypress, Red clay.”

 

All Night Long

RAMON MONEGAL | ALLNIGHTLONG

 

“ENDLESS PARTY. No place in the world offers you the possibility of being part of a collective metamorphosis like IBIZA. At any time of the day, whether at sea or at a party, the uniqueness of the island transforms you. But it is when night falls, when the sun’s rays mutate into laser rays and when the sand transforms into a dance floor. MAIN CHORDS: Fresh Fruity, Floral, Woody. TOP NOTES: Pineapple, Lemon, Mint. HEART NOTES: Jasmine, Heliotrope, Patchouli. BASE NOTES: Salty Musk, Vanilla, Oakmoss.”

 

Spice Darno

ELECTIMUSS | SPICE D’ARNO

 

“Spice D’Arno is a rhythmical composition which moves like the flow of the river for which it is named. Opening with the invigorating tones of bergamot, lemon and pink pepper, Spice D’Arno evokes the lively energy of a new adventure about to begin. The scent gently meanders its way into a sophisticated heart bursting with thyme and cistus, softened with a comforting and soothing bran absolute. The cistus pays homage to the tenacity of the Roman adventurers, adding a floral, sweet and woody character to the warmth of bran and the leathery savoury aspect of thyme. In the base of Spice D’Arno a ribbon of sweetness comes in the form of excitingly resinous vanilla which is warm and embracing. This is strengthened and supported by a leathery tone. A discrete yet mighty oud facet completes the composition, lending power and weight to the fragrance and ensuring the lasting power to stay the course. TOP: Pink pepper (LMR), bergamot, lemon, cardamom (LMR), elemi. HEART: Leather, bran absolute (LMR), cistus absolute (LMR), thyme, iris, orange flower. BASE: Oud, vanilla (LMR), myrrh, cashmeran.”

 

Lets Dive

D.S. & DURGA | LET’S DIVE

 

“Get your mates together for a dive among marine-rich waters, seaweed forests, and austere ambergris pieces. The first perfume named by whales! We are proud to support Project CETI to further their critical research and community initiatives in Dominica. ‘Getting to work with a real scientist that is expanding our understanding of our world, is something new and special to me. David Gruber gets in submersibles, shines light on sharks in the dark, and regularly hangs out with Sperm whales. We wanted to capture the serene feeling and scent of diving with whales in Dominica (where his whale buddies frequent). It’s oceanic and soft—ozonic and a meditation on one of perfume’s true heroes: ambergris.’ — D.S. TOP NOTES: marine water, seaweed extract. HEART NOTES: big whale energy, wooly rock rose. BASE NOTES: synthesized ambergris, choya nakh accord.”

 

Bold As Love

THAMEEN | BOLD AS LOVE

 

“Bold As Love, created by Master Perfumer Pierre Negrin, continues the story of Handel House in Chords over 200 years later with another music legend in the same location, Jimi Hendrix. Inspired by Hendrix’s sensuality, soulful artistry and complexity of emotions, this fragrance is just as bold and poignant. Bold As Love masterfully blends aromatic and animalic tones with the richness of leather, highlighted by fresh and sharp accents. Negrin explains, ‘As I was creating Bold As Love, I found an image of Jimi Hendrix in a purple costume. I was immediately attracted to it as it’s my favourite colour. To capture the atmosphere of this image, I crafted a fragrance with smoky leather notes to convey the raw and beastly energy he exuded on stage and his unique sense of style. The smoky notes of the fragrance also mirror Hendrix’s colourful lifestyle. This perfume pays tribute to an extraordinary and inspiring genius whom I found truly innovative.’ Top Notes: Mandarin, Ginger, Fruity Accord (Apple & Pineapple). Heart Notes: Lavender, Juniper Berry, Geranium. Base Notes: Smoky Leather, Patchouli, Vetiver.”

 

Moscado

THE MERCHANT OF VENICE | MOSCADO

 

“An Eau de Parfum that pays homage to the most famous Venetian explorer, Marco Polo. A modern and unprecedented creation that with its musky, woody yet citrusy notes invites us to discover all facets of contemporary musks. A fragrance that captures the adventurous spirit of Venetian explorer Marco Polo and his extraordinary discoveries. Citrus notes of mandarin and bergamot intertwine with the spicy touch of pink pepper. Wisps of Incense and the seductive warmth of Musk emerge from the heart of the fragrance, enveloping you in a veil of sensuality. A captivating bouquet of delicate roses blossoms amidst this elegant heart, infusing the air with sophistication. Finally, Myrrh and Tonka Bean, blended together, create a rich, velvety base, enchanting you with captivating addictiveness. Top notes: Cardamom Essential Oil Orpur™, Pink Peppercorn Orpur™, Vert De Mandarin Orpur™. Heart notes: Incenso Somalia Orpur™, Musk, Rose Bulgaria Orpur™. Base Notes: Ass. Fava Tonka Orpur™, Myrrh Orpur™.”

 

Tahaa

TAHAA | PANNACO

 

“THAILAND: In the heart of Thailand, on winding roads through the land of smiles, our olfactory adventure begins. A vibrant road trip leads us to discover the sensory treasure that will give life to Pannaco Tahaa fragrance. In Bangkok’s bustling market, the Mahachanok mango offers itself to us, an exquisite fruit promising a sweet elixir that evokes the vibrant colors of local stalls. THAÏTI: After capturing the fruity nuances of Thailand, our quest takes us to even more exotic horizons. We cast off for Tahiti, a jewel of Polynesia where Tahaa vanilla exhales its bewitching fragrance. On the golden shores, between gentle waves and palm trees swaying in the breeze, each vanilla pod contains the essence of a faraway island. FLORENCE: Leaving the paradisiacal shores of Tahiti, our olfactory journey takes us to a completely different cradle of culture and gastronomy: Italy. Here, in the bustling streets of Florence, a new chapter in our journey begins. In the warm atmosphere of a traditional dessert. The master perfumers precisely blend the harvested elements. The Heart of Pannacotta, lovingly prepared, blends delicately with the Mahachanok Mango Curd, creating a sweet and fruity harmony. Every drop is carefully measured, every note orchestrated to capture the essence of our journey. PANNACO TAHAA: In these Italian lands of elegance, the fragrance Pannaco Tahaa takes shape, blending influences from Thailand, Tahiti and Italy. It becomes the olfactory expression of a road trip transcending borders, uniting distant cultures in a fragrant symphony. Top Note: Orange Vaniglia – Curd mango Mahachanok. Heart note: Creamy Pannacotta – Vanilla. Background note: Tahitensis vanilla extract – Tonka absolute – Benzoin – Saffron – White musk.”

 

Ny Gardenia

BOND NO. 9 | NY GARDENIA

 

“The parks and gardens are in full bloom to herald a bold new fragrance that stands alone as an audacious ambassador of spring. Stunning, unapologetic, provocative. Sounds like a city we know. Like NYC itself, this sensual gardenia gourmand floral is strong and powerful, a fitting symbol for a city that roars for attention. NOTES:Jasmine, Tuberose, Rose, Peony, Gardenia, Vetiver, Vanilla.”
