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.
2019 was marked by numerous releases of new fragrances, some quote that over 3000 new perfumes were launched. Waves of niche fragrances rolling in the market could be predicted as well: early Spring, late Spring/early Summer, late Autumn. Some even in late December!
Yet, in all that turmoil, ever since mid-October last year – I kept thinking about Puredistance Gold...
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.“
The way your lips move when you pronounce its name…
Quite a mouthful sounds so grand, happy, and sad at the same time.
I received a beautiful package.
Puredistance Warszawa, a fragrance honoring this city. It was carefully crafted and released in 2016. but one-year exclusivity was granted to Missala family, owners of Perfumeria Quality in Warsaw. This November it will be available worldwide. The nose behind it is Antoine Lie.
