Perfume Lounge, a renowned niche perfume boutique in Amsterdam is celebrating its 10 years anniversary with a bespoke Extrait du Parfum Cuir Soyeux created by Francesca Bianchi.
Nomen est omen, so let’s start with the name. Aenotus is a non-existing word, Puredistance says that it stands for the notes of the winds blown by Aeolus, the „keeper of the winds“ in Greek mythology:
„In AENOTUS the cool notes of Aeolus are fusing with the soft, sensual warmth of the South. And the classic (Latin) ending of the word Aenotus suggests the depth and maturation of time.“
I received a sample of the new Gallivant fragrance – Tokyo months ago before it’s official launch this September. I knew that it was an addition to the line launched in 2017. when Gallivant started out with fragrances Amsterdam, Berlin, Brooklyn, Istanbul, London, and Tel Aviv.
