Your Highness

By Millie Winter

The Pontiac Silverdome arena, New Year’s Eve, bringing an end to the year of 1975, the King of Rock n Roll takes the stage. 62,000 fans flood this music venue in Detroit, Michigan. It ended up being The King’s, Elvis, highest attending concert ever. Here in Your Highness read into some of the most notable King’s and Queen’s of the music industry and meet a new perfume that celebrates such stars.  

As midnight approaches, a ten-second count down begins, full of celebratory balloons and the feeling of the spotlights basking against your skin. Your head tilts back as you fall into the notes of “Auld Lang Syne”, a New Year’s Eve classic, but this time being sung by Presley. 

Elvis is, undoubtedly, one of the true Kings of Rock n Roll music. The King’s and Queen’s of music have brought the most captivating vibrations into this world through their talents in several different melodious genres. It is imperative we celebrate the most brilliant among all the stars in music.

They are reined the most royal of their classification through their profound impact on the entertainment industry. They rule the land of which they possess through their majestic notes and powerful lyrics. Continuously bringing top hits to the industry, the most proper fit must be to crown these names for their musical nobility. 

Miss Dolly Parton takes the crown for being the Queen of Country, knocking down the doors for the history of female performers. 25 songs of hers have taken the number 1 spot on Billboard music charts, a record for a female artist. She wears her diamond packed crown with her glowing smile and extraordinary country elegance. 

The music industry has the ability to acknowledge the aptitude of all ranges of songs and artists. 

In the 1970s, the Bronx, New York, was the location for the origins and evolution of the Hip Hop sphere. The form’s forceful and hard-hitting beats were accentuated by rappers like the Notorious B.I.G (Biggie Smalls) who is considered to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. He single-handedly reinvented East Coast hip-hop, the King of Rap.   

We look to music like gospel for its ability to spiritually lift us from even the darkest times. A gospel prodigy, Aretha Franklin is the Queen of Soul. She managed to translate the spirit into something even more. Nobody could even come close to matching her tone. Franklin’s voice helped her to rise above her difficult childhood and define herself.

A pioneer of reggae, Bob Marley. His music creations increased the expansion and visibility of Jamaican music worldwide. In 1978, Marley was awarded the United Nations Peace Medal for the Third World.

Jusbox Perfumes, the Italian niche perfume brand specialise in scents that celebrate music. Their melding of musical notes and scent notes come together to form one unanimous language.

A few examples include –

Night Flow: Rap, “It is the lyrics of the night, when the universe reveals itself in all its secret nuances to those who never give up,” nodding to rappers Notorious B.I.G and 50 Cent.

Green Bubble: Reggae, “the rhythm is composed by the serenity of a shining sun, the Jamaican people’s strength and creativity, and the vegetation, which reigns undisputed in this land of wood and water,” highlighting Bob Marley and Alpha Blondy.

They have decided to encapsulate these award winners and highlight the King’s and Queens in the history of the music industry through their new scent ‘Suit of Lights’. The unique scent is made to enclose the notes of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Think of it as a diamond explored because of the diamond music awards. Expressed via the perfume are all the colours of a fractured diamond, with each colour being represented in a perfume note.

“A black sequined jacket, shiny stockings, magic shoes and a white rhinestone-studded glove on her left hand dazzle the audience. The audience is catapulted into a universal emotional explosion as the King of Pop begins to walk on the moon.”

Suit of Lights Olfactory Pyramid:

Top notes: Bright light Tangerine oil, sits with violet leaves, and sweet honeysuckle

Heart notes: Fresh Orange Blossom Absolute LMR, Rich Jasmine Sambac Absolute LMR, Freesia, and fruity Geranium

Bottom notes: Topping off with cedarwood, Sandalwood, and Musk

Just like the way hearing a certain tune of a song from the King of Pop can trigger distant memories, Jusbox perfumes use music as an inspiration for every one of their fragrances triggering the connection between this re-emergence of memory through the power of scent as well. Enjoy some of the real heroes of music.
