Hey hey hey, it’s Friday! It’s time to hit the chic-est Manila clubs and party till dawn.
But before you don your sexiest clothes and before you spritz your most sultry perfume, a YSL La Nuit De L’Homme perhaps, or the Guerlain La Petite Robe Noir, here are some select news from the perfume world!
According to Now Smell This, Maison Francis Kurkdjian will release a series of spinoffs of his well received Oud. This is yet another proof that the era of Oud will continue on to 2013!
This year, MFK will release Oud Silk Mood, Oud Cashmere Mood, and Oud Velvet Mood. These, I can imagine, are tweaks on the creamy oud wood to evoke the textures of fabrics like silk, cashmere, or velvet. Still imagining, I think I would prefer the softness, and comforting qualities of cashmere, thus Oud Cashmere Mood.
Now, I must say that I haven’t tried MFK’s Oud from 2012. But I’m very excited about these trio. I am very much interested to know how Monsieur Kurkdjian does heavier, and richer perfumes. I have the impression that MFK’s fragrances, Absolue Pour Le Matin for example, are light and clean, and airy.
Still another to look forward to this year is the trio from Histoires des Parfums, Veni, Vidi, Vici.
While Gérald Ghislain borrowed the famous words of Julius Ceasar, Veni, Vidi, Vici, represents the earth, the wind, and fire. Veni, represents earth, something familiar, and yet mysterious. Vidi is for the wind that carries us where we dare go, and Vici, the fire, the power that creates as well as destroys.
I love the idea. And I would love it more if these trio of perfumes would work in synergy much like earth, wind, and fire.
