A Lab on Fire
A Lab On Fire A Blvd. Called Sunset was released in 2020, created by Maurice Roucel. Nodding to the infamous Sunset Boulevard, a sun drenched, salty breeze over white florals and vanilla as you cruise in a car with old leather seats down the 1. Notes of bergamot, almond, violet, jasmine, leather, sandalwood, vanilla and tonka.
From their notes - "Inspired by The Doors, Ed Ruscha. When the forces of nature known as the Santa Ana’s whip down the boulevard, the neon burns a little hotter and everyone walks a bit crooked. These winds are the perfect excuse for wildness. I joyride the strip all the way to sea, radio blasting, diving into the sunset where Sunset kisses the Pacific. Or maybe I’ll stay in the city, hitting the sun-baked concrete in search of my next big break in this city of angels, fallen or otherwise."
It is an eau de parfum, edp.
From Colognoisseur - "It opens with an astringent bitter almond. This isn’t the comfy toasted version, this has a hint of rawness. Violet reaches out and pulls it into its candied embrace. Adding a sweet floral shell. A fabulous dry leather accord comes next. If you’ve ever got into a car with leather upholstery after it has sat on a hot day you will recognize this. There is an expansiveness as the warm waves of tanned animal hide rise to the violet and almond. One of the very dry sustainable sources of sandalwood forms the base which has some of the severity ameliorated with vanilla and tonka bean. That last ingredient feels as if it closes the circuit with the almond from the beginning."
