Pink Haze-Scented Snippets: End of Year Delights/Peace Love and Perfume Project

photo

Pink Haze is an ebulliently floral scent with a certain metallic brilliance to it. It smells faintly of wet sidewalks and the summer sun on a heated car grill: cheerily optimistic and somewhat hip. There’s nothing stuffy or stodgy here, and it is as fun as its name.

Notes: lilac, lily-of-the-valley, gardenia, metallic notes, cedar, honeysuckle and beeswax.

Indieperfumes reveiws Coffee Amber Vanilla Perfume.

coffee“Coffee Amber Vanilla is a full rich rendition of these three soothing sensory stimulants all together, veering close to the intoxicating end of the olfactory scale, in the house style.  A gourmand liqueur that might fuel a winter’s day and night, entering into the spirit of black/brown sepia that sinks into the skin like an ink stain. It dwells the longest in the upper register of a new kind of incense that burns coffee and amber vapors so that you may then give yourself up to the worship of the concentrated brunette beauties of dark vanilla, chestnut, agar and oud. Try this and hopefully get it worked into your sweaters and scarves, and enjoy the cashmere softness it will veil over your winter wools.”

House of Cherry Bomb-Brooklyn Atelier Perfumes review of all six.

af9c11d787dfc8374097de25619bea60

“The Atelier Scents have a sophisticated lyrical minimalist spirit, the presentation is an elegant leather band wrapped around an etched spray flacon, and their tone is focused and direct. Many of them layer with each other in an appealing way. They are lovely to experiment with, and easy to love. These are not perfumes that are difficult or that you must develop a taste for; they are immediate pleasures for the aromatically inclined of all levels of experience. Then can be worn applied either lightly or with abandon and work both ways.”

Pink Haze Review on Indiescents.

“A truly Brooklyn inspired fragrance, composed of the fragile and fragrant petals of street trees in bloom, mixed with the scent of gritty sidewalks and traffic soot, washed by rains and collecting together at the street corners. That very specific city and earthy metallic feel as lightened by cherry and apple blossom petals, that infusion of the natural into the man made environment. ”

Now Smell This – Pink Haze Review

hocb-pink-haze-23s“Like House of Cherry Bomb’s Cardamom Rose and Tobacco Cognac, Pink Haze cleverly paints an entire scene using relatively few elements. It opens with the stone and metal notes. They are cool and slightly chilly, and surprisingly realistic, evoking rain-damp sidewalks and shady stone stoops. After about twenty minutes, however, the entire tone of the fragrance changes. There’s an unexpected shift from mineral to floral notes, as if you had just walked down a cobblestoned alley between towering warehouses and found yourself entering a hidden private garden. The green-tinged lily of the valley and the soapy-powdery lilac are most noticeable, so it must be a spring garden; I think I can also catch a breath of freesia in the mix. The honeysuckle and beeswax emerge later, like a premonition of summer, and add some warmth….”

PINK HAZE – Perfume created for the PLP Project

photo

PINK HAZE is the scent of tree lined Brooklyn streets, of stone buildings,

both old and new, and of the hot metal of subway cars. It is the heady yet

ephemeral scent of gardens blooming with lily of the valley, gardenia,

lilac and honeysuckle on early summer nights. It is beauty of light

haze tinting the sky pink, and the energy of throngs of people. It

captures the old elegance of the city while regaling the modernity and

change of our neighborhoods. It is the scent of our Brooklyn- artistic,

musical, inspiring, beautiful….equal parts classic and new, as is this city

we live in.

Notes: Lilac, Mouget, Gardenia, Stone, Metal, Cedar Wood, Honeysuckle.
