The Strange South
Phlur Missing Person was released in 2022, created by Constance Georges-Picot. It has reached a bit of a cult TikTok status, sold out, sold out again and is still hard to find. From reviews and my own experience, it is very different on each person, so reviews are difficult to really know if you will love this or not. Some people experienced a fleeting perfume or just nothing. On me, it was pretty big and lasted for about 10 hours. What it does seem to hold is - for some people - the ability to unlock memories and emotion
A Floral woody Musk, it has notes of musk, jasmine, bergamot, cyclamen, orange blossom, neroli, white musk, white wood and Australian sandalwood. Phlur Missing Person is an eau de parfum, edp.
From the brand - "If nude were a perfume, this is it. A delicate, yet addictive fragrance that evokes the lingering scent of your lover’s skin. Brought to life by comforting accords of white musk, enhanced by sheer floral nuances of jasmine and glowing orange blossom and fused with a light trail of soft transparent woods, MISSING PERSON is pure, provocative and undeniably familiar."
Allure - "I was pleasantly surprised by Missing Person's ability to pluck things out of my memory bank like magic, yet the scent was curiously subtle overall. So much so that I gave my skin a few more generous spritzes before jotting down the emotions that came flooding in. Before I knew it, I felt like I was hugging my mom in the pickup line after a long day at school because the fragrance shares the same comforting scents as the body lotion and cashmere fragrance mentioned above."
Allure - Senior Beauty Editor Dianna Mazzone "instantly recalled the feeling she often gets waking up on a Sunday morning in the summer...then dries down to a creamy, enveloping musk," She describes Missing Person as familiar and comfortable yet full of possibility."
Bustle - "For me, I was deeply reminded of my fiancé, and somehow found myself longing for the smell of his skin just before bed, as his favorite cologne is nearly completely faded. The sensation was beautifully soothing, allowing me to find a familiar, safe space through scent."
New York Post - "Not to spoil the ending, but after this video from Rachel Rigler went viral, she then tested it on her boyfriend, who was also shocked that the scent smelled like Rachel, “fresh out of the shower..."
Fragrantica - "Immediate favorite. Missing Person is everything I love in a skin musk; it's warm, sexy, clean, and inviting."
