What happens when one of niche fragrance’s most prolific perfumers is given the freedom to have some fun? In Bertrand Duchaufour’s case, he creates a modern, zesty blend of pink pepper, woods, and aquatic notes that- not to ruin the crazy imagery- comes out shockingly relaxed and lovely. Don’t get us wrong, the vibrant, spicy opening has attitude to spare, with cardamom and the aforementioned pink pepper crackling against a fizzy gin note, but somewhere in the smooth, gently resinous heart, a drop of cassis meets a rich olibanum with such sweet smoothness that we can’t help but close our eyes a moment and just enjoy it all. Once the salty, ocean-tinged woods of the base set in, we’re downright transported- not to a bougie beach club, mind you, but perhaps the latter hours of an all-night full moon party in Koh Phangan, as the sun is just starting to peek over the horizon and the last people standing can take a deep exhale and marvel at the craziness fading into memory. And with a delightfully woodsy, fresh, and fun memory like this, you can be sure we’ll be coming back again and again.
