A decade ago more of my work as a perfumer was done for private clients, dear friends + spiritual family. That's how Dirty Sexy Love Parfum was born in and around 2009. I want to give you an insider's glimpse into how I designed the four distinct parfums that make up this best selling very highly sought after aphrodisiac. My Notes from the design time frame are useful with some poetic nuanced ramblings to remind me what I was building upon.
DIRTY SEXY LOVE
FRAGRANCE FAMILY: FLORAL, ORIENTAL
NOTES: SWEET ORANGE, MIMOSA, ROSEWOOD, PINK PEPPER, PINK LOTUS, NEROLI TUNISIAN, FRANGIPANI, ORANGE FLOWER ABSOLUTE, TONKA BEAN, BLONDE TOBACCO, AMBRETTE SEED, AGAR MUSK, BENZOIN RESINOID, VANILLA, LABDANUM, COGNAC, AGARWOOD, NUTMEG, OSMANTHUS, PERILLA, IMMORTELLE, SANDALWOOD, DAVANA
CREATED IMBOLC 2009
THE BEAUTIFUL ROMANTIC APHRODITE HOLIDAY PARFUM THAT IS A MASH UP OF THREE PRIVATE COMPOSITIONS THAT I MADE FOR AN ACTRESS TO WALK THE RED CARPET FOR A VERY SPECIAL NIGHT FOR HER HUSBAND’S FILM AWARD, A SHY ENGINEER FALLING IN LOVE WHO ASKED FOR A SCENT TO OPEN HIS HEART, AND AN ACTIVIST/ACTRESS WHO FLEW TO PARIS TO VISIT A MAN SHE MET OVER THE INTERNET WHO SHE WAS PLANNING A FLIRTATIOUS VACATION THAT WOULD LEAVE HIM REMEMBERING HER AND LONGING FOR HER.
THIS IS THE BESTSELLER OF ALL TIMES FOR LPO. IT APPEALS TO ALMOST EVERYONE. ORANGE CITRUS NOTES OF JOY OPENS UP TO A SOFT SULTRY FLORAL ORIENTAL THAT DRIES DOWN TO A SPICY WOOD.
WEAR FOR POWER OF QUIET PERSISTENT ADORATION.
A week in to the reformulation: I am doing well with the process. Adding some more tonka bean to the mixture. xo to give that long smooth powdery tail in the dry down.
