Phlur Solar Power
Phlur Missing Person was released in 2022, created by Constance Georges-Picot. It has reached cult TikTok status and continues to sell out, which is unusual for a fragrance after a few months of going viral from reviews. This seems to smell very different from person to person - it was great on me and was just awful on my sister. It is difficult to know without testing it, so I recommend do NOT blind buy this just based on someone else's review. For those it is great on, it is great, but that may not be your experience at all. Some people experienced a fleeting perfume or just nothing. On me, it was pretty big and lasted for about 10 hours. What does seem to happen - for some people - are memories and emotion are unlocked. That is a magical thing when it happens, but there is no guarantee you'll have that experience at all.
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."
The perfumer, Constance Georges-Picot says Missing Persons is "reminiscent of the harmonious feeling you get when you emerge out of a bath, so relaxed and yet invigorated all at the same time, with the scent of fresh, clean skin glistening with supple softness taking over your senses.”
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."
Reddit - " got mine in the mail last weekend, bought the full size, and love it! I went to buy another bottle to have an extra and it was sold out! I really enjoy the scent. It's light, musky, but still romantic. I have been wearing it almost nonstop for the last week. I have gotten compliments from a lot of people while at work. It is not overpowering and not headache inducing."
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..."
TikTok - Mikayla Nogueira held back tears upon her first impression — the scent reminded her of "a person you love or that you miss."
Fragrantica - "Immediate favorite. Missing Person is everything I love in a skin musk; it's warm, sexy, clean, and inviting."
