I’m excited about a new floral scent I’ve been working on — an update of Jour Ensoleille. I wanted this fragrance to keep the same character but be a little more sophisticated. It’s been a floral scent with orange blossom and jasmine on a lightly wooded base with cedar, sandal, amber, and musk. I wanted the orange blossom to be softer at the start and I wanted less amber in the base with a little fresher but still woodsy touch.
The new version has orange blossom, tuberose, jasmine, lily of the valley, labdanum, sandalwood, patchouli, green leaves, oakmoss, and musk. It blends a summery, almost tropical, mix of florals with a light woodsy, earthy base. It’s long lasting with medium intensity, not a skin scent but not huge sillage either. I’ll be testing a bit more before locking the formula, but I think it is about done. I created a completely new formula to make use of some beautiful new ingredients that work very well in this context; the scent is very different, but still fits the original idea I had for it.
I also just finished my first batch of Champagne de Bois and really like how it turned out. I’m still working on several rose scents.
Recently SSS had some very nice reviews on the blog Savvy Thinker here:
