Perfume Description

IFF (International Flavors & Fragrances, Inc.) recently released just 200 sets of their Speed Smelling™ Collection from 2014. Each year IFF invites a small group of French fragrance journalists to find out what the perfumers at IFF would do when they can create a fragrance when they have no brief and no budget restrictions. This event is called Speed Smelling™. Over the course of one hour, 11 perfumers must impress the jury with a creation that must surprise, seduce and be remembered. This event allows the perfumers to speak about their art and present their fragrances and allows the journalists to get to know the perfumers.

Imagining a garden in space suspended among the stars, this fragrance conjures up a cosmic garden that smells of honey, a cloud of ozonic musks, aromatic herbs, carrot and vetiver roots and rose and jasmine flowers. In information taken from Grain de Musc: Sophie Labbe wondered what the garden in a orbital station would smell of. What space settlers would take along with them to remember Earth? Mandarin, basil, lavender, ginger, pink pepper, cassis bud, but also the pared-down LMR vetiver heart and carrot heart feature in this intergalactic garden, along with jasmine and rose, obviously no perfumer would leave home without them. And a lick of honey, since all of those plants need to be pollenated. The zero-G atmosphere is conjured with an IFF captive, the aptly-named Edenolide™, a highly faceted musk with tremendous volume and enough lifting power to get the whole greenhouse into orbit. A faintly metallic-ozonic-drying concrete note hovers in the background creating a fragrance that is both evocative of vintage fragrances and convincingly space-age-y; a proper fragrance and an eerily dematerialized anti-perfume.
