Hello to all of you fabulously scented friends!
Today I’m going to touch upon a topic that may seem a bit narcissistic to those of you who primarily love fragrance as an art form. For a majority of casual perfume consumers, fragrance functions as a fashion accessory and often also as an aphrodisiac. Many beginners to the perfumery obsession choose scents that elicit compliments. They want big, bold, strong, long-lasting, loud aromas that exude confidence and attractiveness.
Personally, I view perfumery as fine art. As a dear friend and master perfumer recently explained to me, perfumers are more like composers of musical symphonies, telling a story without words, a sonata for the senses.
I’ll be real with you, though. That doesn’t mean I’m above the glow of flattery that comes from an unsolicited compliment on my perfume. Or two. Or more. On the same night…from strangers….
A few weeks ago, I wore one of my beloved secret weapons out to a show, and my perfume got more attention than I’ve ever experienced while wearing a fragrance:
eNVie saphir perfume oil
eNVie gives these featured accords:
Egyptian Amber, musk, Cairo papyrus oil, Siam benzoin, vanillin
eNVie is a new company established by the founder of Nocturne Alchemy, Emerson Hart. This luxurious line of perfume oils orbits around the flagship scent, saphir, which can be purchased as its own precious original formula or accented with other beautiful notes.
eNVie saphir is a smooth, intense, unique amber musk scent that is difficult to describe. To my nose, ambrette seed and vanilla play major roles. The overall effect is rounded but with a backbone, magnetic but not submissive. I find it absolutely enchanting.
I anointed saphir on my wrists before going out, and I’m not exaggerating when I say that multiple times, strangers came up to me just to ask me if I was the person who smelled so amazing or to grill me about what perfume I had on. I admit, it felt really nice to get so much attention due to a work of art that I love so dearly.
I even grabbed some for my cousin as a gift, because she fell in love with it that night too. Spreading the fragrant joy, it’s my duty as family!
eNVie has eNVie Saphir $250/25ml
So, what’s your secret weapon scent for a night out? Could you ever call a particular scent your signature, even if it’s just for special occasions?
Love and light,
