Surrender to Chance
Surrender to Chance is proud to announce their two new all natural fragrances created by La Via del Profumo/Dominique Dubrana of AbdesSalaam Attar. Dubrana is a self-taught perfumer who creates perfumes using only natural essences and tinctures from his perfume lab in Rimini, Italy. His creations are so beautiful that he is the only natural perfumer to be included in Luca Turin/Tania Sanchez's "Perfumes: The A-Z Guide". The four perfumes included in the book all received four stars so we are very honored to have our fragrance created by him. Luca Turin had this to say about Dubrana's work with AbdesSalaam Attar The Scents of the Soul - "He's one of these very rare examples of a natural-born perfumer. He seems to be incredibly sure-footed, in a way which reminds me of Francois Coty. I love his fragrances. I don't think anyone can touch him in the field of natural perfumery."
Surrender is a rich jasmine floral that blends different jasmine absolutes with licorice, carrot, myrrh, gourmand notes and hyraceum. We wanted this to be a plush, slightly naughty wedding perfume, but it can be worn by anyone, no wedding required. We love jasmine and we love what Dominique did with this. The addition of the hyraceum makes this fragrance sing! It should be noted that it is an ethical and sustainable source of animal pheromone which does not hurt the animal in any way as hyraceum is the crystallized and petrified form of Hyrax urine. Because of the nature of the ingredients in Surrender and for its function as a sensual aphrodisiac fragrance, animal pheromones have a sense and a place in it.
One of our early customer testers stated: "I am not generally a jasmine fan, but this is superb. It is soft and almost milky. A jasmine fragrance for a non-jasmine fan!"
