Special Feature

Armand Basi Wild Forest Wild Forest is the new masculine fragrance by Armand Basi, inspired by one of nature’s most noble elements: wood. The scent opens with a cloud of top notes of spices that reveal the strength of pepper combined with the elegant touch of warm, intense nutmeg. The middle note unites violet leaves and rich cedar wood, while the bottom note has a clear Oriental influence through hints of vanilla, softened by leather and bold incense. Exotic patchouli and woody grey amber give the fragrance personality, with a last hint of delicate musk. The design is pure geometrical engineering: a transparent glass bottle embedded with a layer of untreated wood, which has been subject to the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), the main international association for sustainable forest management. www.armandbasi.com

Trance, J.F. Schwarzlose Berlin J.F.Schwarzlose Berlin has presented another enchanting fragrance from their latest line: Trance. An oriental fragrance bearing the heart of Berlin within, Trance features a superfluous blend of soft Turkish rose and Agarwood Oud, infused together with labdanum and Artemisia. Eccentric, extravagant and iridescent, Trance is a highly concentrated Eau de Parfum that exudes the elegance, minimalism and stark contrasts that make the soul of Berlin. A hypnotic perfume, Trance is as moving and intense as it is ambiguous, that reflects the ambiguous relationship of Berlin with modern finesse and traditional glory. The fragrance epitomises the transition from sullen and feminine rose to a heady, strong oud that is as intoxicating and as alarming as the transition from innocent curiosity to a state of deep desire. www.schwarzloseberlin.com/en/fragrances
