I managed to smell some Blackbird creations, and here are two that I enjoyed very much. Their fragrances are bold, uncompromising, very funky, and fun to wear. Looking forward to sampling some of their newest additions, so keep this brand on your radar. Y06-S is a nana-banana, and it is great!
Irisistible created by Tanja Bochnig of April Aromatics is an Art&Olfaction Awards, 2019 Finalist. And no wonder! Nomen est omen, I love interesting perfume names, and this is such a wonderful name for an iris-centered fragrance. I also love Tanja’s creativity and her holistic approach, the whole concept also matters.
Not a „nothing“. I would rather say – everything, and a lot in between.
And the first thing that comes to my mind every time I wear it? The song, of course. Non, rien de rien, je ne regrette rien…off I go humming, and it sticks in my mind for hours. Just like Etat Libre d’Orange Rien does.
I had my first close encounter with UERMI years ago, the concept of olfactory feeling and presentation of different fabrics seemed perfectly understandable to me. Are you familiar with the scent of your favorite pair of jeans? Or a silk blouse? XX Latex is the one that attracted me first: a salty, vynil-musky soft scent cocoon I like to wrap myself into. Doesn’t really each fabric your clothes are made of – smell differently?
UERMI means “wear me” and their fragrance is created by famous perfumers. NU Leather whispers WEAR ME!
To everything, there’s a season: autumn suits patchouli and spices well, and Patchouli & Black Pepper is a lovely perfume that I wore and tested since spring but enjoyed the most this November – it definitely shines, blossoms, and expresses its personality fully in colder weather! Created by Ruth Mastenbroek, and praised as the Bath House bestseller, it definitely breathes in synergy with autumn. And there’s an almost empty bottle to prove it.
“…If I had them, I’d be King”.
But it’s the juicy green balls of desire – figs! that we’re talking about here!
Balls Said the Queen by Dawn Spencer Hurwitz of DSH Perfumes is not a beach-y or tropical fragrance at all, and yet it feels lush like a late summer’s day, like the moment when you realize that the summer is almost gone and each and every minute of a hot day suddenly feels like a precious gift you don’t want to let go of. It’s not gourmand either, and yet it is mouthwatering and inviting. You might call it „green“ but that’s a hot hue of green, like a green leaf placed over strategic places on a naked body. And even though it feels openly sensual, its balance is refined.
Dawn thinks it’s „kinda badass.“, and I think it’s a fragrance that’s wonderfully sensual in a very playful way.
