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. 

Over the past few decades, the perfumer's palette has seen many changes. It has encountered elimination of mostly animalic natural ingredients and additions of new chemical ingredients or natural ingredients bred from the prolific research in both areas. Recent ingredients sometimes compensate for the disappearance of old ones. Jean-Christophe Herault regrets the loss of phenolic notes - those distressed, horse-stable leather notes, which gave such cachet to a composition. He set about recreating them in an old aged rum accord, matured in whiskey barrels. The reinvention is also that of what gourmandise stands for - a territory often associated with veltol, not used here - embodied by a spirituous chypre.

The rum accord at the heart of this composition recreates a likeness to whiskey. The temptation begins with a mouth-watering rum absolute enriched with spicy caramel notes. It is amplified by fruity essences of nova orange and mandarine with a combined effect that is reminiscent of Grand Marnier. LMR davana essence brings a finishing touch to the liquor bouquet with its cherry notes. The woody aspect is inspired by a guaiac essence and the slightly leathery tones of LMR Haitian vetiver. Patchouli imparts the perfume's chypre structure. This fragrance brings together the distillation methods of perfumery and distillery. Two fields long-intermingled, with perfume being drunk up until the time of Napoleon the 1st. A reinvented and mouth-watering gourmandise.
