3 It’s beginning to Smell Like Christmas

By Jo Phillips

It’s not just on the festive day that our sense of smell becomes alive with particular scents. All the way through the season we eat drink and make merry building into a crescendo on the 25th of December. Our sense of smell, so powerful, that the moment we get a whiff of Cinnamon, Tangerine and Star Anise we know it’s the Christmas holiday period. Here we celebrate perfumes and explore these notes so familiar with the food we eat during this festive season. From a grind of black Pepper via spicy warming Cardamom and Ginger 1, it’s beginning to smell like Christmas.

Eight and Bob Annicke 6 A beautifully blended elixir that personifies the complex dimensions of a woman. Top notes of Bergamot and Carnation represent her classy sophistication juxtaposed by Sichuan Pepper to accentuate her sassy side. Heart notes of Rose and Ambre 84 DL soften the tone. Base notes of warm, rich Indian Sandalwood couple with tenacious Labdanum to round out this well-balanced mixture.  Garnished with highly desired Benzoin, this unique aroma embodies the true value of its components.

Thameen London Bohemian infusion, The Britologne collection. Zesty citrus accents of Grapefruit and Petitgrain fuse with juicy Blackcurrant and Cardamom. Cinnamon underlines the spicy nuance and blend with a bold bouquet of icy and resinous aromatic notes of Artemisia, Myrtle and Longoza. Enigmatic shades of earthy Patchouli and mineral Ambrostar are wrapped with carnal Labdanum and sensual Ambre 84 de Laire

Marc-Antoine Barrois Paris Ganymede Extrait de Parfum. Jupiter’s immense satellite has not only inspired our perfume’s name, but is also known to be full of craters and to have an underground ocean vaster than all of earth’s oceans put together. The perfume’s creators, Marc-Antoine Barrois and Quentin Bisch, have imagined it here in a world with an atmosphere brimming with aromatics that it becomes combustible: its sky is gleaming with the sour spike of mandarin and the holy fumaroles of incense and myrrh. It’s a planet covered with warm velvet dunes where the spicy and caramelized everlasting flower is preponderant. The fiery heart of this fragrance reminds us that the gods gave Ganymede eternal life so that his beauty would never fade. Is it the smoldering skin hidden underneath the wild leather? This precious perfume extract is as much a sophisticated perfume as a carnal one. The spicy, almost syrupy scent of these yellow flowers.

Ella K Parfums Perfumes Camélia K Eau de Parfum, The mellifluous marriage of Ginger, Dragon fruit and Mandarin invites us to cross the threshold into a voluptuous paradise. This creation is a poetic summons to desire, wrapped in the sensuality of Vanilla, Vetiver and Patchouli, emerging from an intense bouquet of Orange blossom, red camellia and sambac Jasmine.
