Perfume Description

IFF (International Flavors & Fragrances, Inc.) released their 2017 Speed Smelling Postmodern Collection. The Collection uses irony, a characteristic of the post-modern movement, breaking codes to better reconstruct them. This art of perfumery is mind-boggingly creative and the perfumers of IFF thrive on creative challenges. This is what inspired them to invent Speed Smelling, a scented variation on speed dating. Over the course of an hour, 14 perfumes have less than 7 minutes to seduce the most exacting of juries: the best fragrance editors and bloggers in France. Speed Smelling allows IFF perfumers to freely exercise their talents as olfactory artists, with no creative or budget constraints. Their creations must surprise, seduce, be acknowledged, but also remembered. This even allows perfumers to veer off beaten paths, cut loose and shake up the codes of their trade. 

Kyphi stands for "twice good perfume" good for the gods, good for men. Its recipe is the oldest on record, engraved on the walls of Egyptian temples, it notes about twenty ingredients. A few years ago, Dominique Ropion had looked at its composition to create an alcohol-based version, and guessed the proportions not found in the hieroglyphs. It's this form of Kyphi which is presented today at the Grand Musee du Parfum in Paris. For this Speed Smelling project, he has recreated his original Kyphi.

The first Kyphi formulated by Ropion is used here as a base. The notes of this first Kyphi include a honey accord, containing an LMR beeswax absolute, an LMR broom absolute, strong doses of spices such as saffron, cardamom and ginger, cypriol essence - extracted from a species of papyrus - and myrrh. To modernize it, Ropion adorns it with ingredients then unknown, IFF captives such as Cosmofruit - and its sugared fruits notes, which express the grape featured in the original formula - and oud which blends perfectly with cypriol.
