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. 

This is not a musk. Today's musk is all over, however it's literally nowhere. It carries in its heart the nostalgia of old perfumery times when Tonkin musk bewitched hearts. Thanks to chemistry, it is also substituted for a complex, dirty animalic note. To this one must add another: tobacco smells. Cigarettes have become digital. Since our times are about creating decoys, Domitille Michalon Bertier created a scented trompe-l'oeil (or trompe-nose): musk without musk, tobacco without tobacco, mirroring the art of perfumery. An art of illusion!

The ingredients in this formula ultimately matter little. They are only serving the effects that we feel when smelling Tonkin musk and tobacco. Ambertonic, Ambrettolide, Sinfonide - white musks lie on a base of civet (without civet) and castoreum (without castoreum) from the perfumer's own recipes. Still this would not reveal its components - in perfumery, secrecy is of the essence. One could also, because of a vanilla and tonka bean effect, talk about the premises of a tobacco accord, but here again, we'd have to stop. It's better then to refer to Picasso, and nothing more, when it comes to bringing shape to life, who simply said: "without blue, I use red". And with that, no further comment.
