Here are just a few of some of the new fall releases...
Black Jade by Lubin
In the house of Lubin, the once lost but now resuscitated fragrance for a long time bore the name of “jardin secret”, until the 1930s, without any explicit reference ever being made to its origin. Lubin has now restored its name of the time, “black jade”, the one brought to us by a close friend to whom the queen gave the black flask with its nostalgic whiffs when they parted for the last time. It held the “secret garden” of a queen, the memory of her happy days, of spring evenings in the intimacy of the Petit Trianon, at Versailles, but far from the pomp of the court.
Parfums de Nicolaï - L'Eau Chic Eau de Toilette
With its blend of geranium, mint and lavender, L'Eau Chic is a little gesture of elegance: an easy-to-wear fragrance, identifiable, and long lasting. The essence of geranium is the heart and soul of this composition. A delicate touch is added to the Bourbon geranium with essences of crisp and peppered mint blended with lavender. Sandalwood, chamomile and iris round this fragrance off with a slightly tangy tone coming from the cloves and spices. A cocktail of white musk reinforces the tone and allows it to last, and last, and last… throughout the entire summer.

Parfum D'Empire - Azemour Eau de Parfum
"From time immemorial and in every culture, perfume has been about seduction and spirituality. With Parfum d’Empire, I wanted to bring it back its original meaning, its erotic and sacred origins. Amorous conquest, spiritual conquest, self-conquest: perfume is a conquest, perfume is an exploration. To give a contemporary expression to this tradition, I draw on the noblest of raw materials, but also on my emotions and on my intuition, because nothing is more universal than what is most intimate. The breath of the gods and the emotion of the flesh… My scents are an invitation to explore the most complex and mysterious of empires: the realm of the senses. If all my scents are a part of myself, this one is particularly dear to me."— Marc-Antoine Corticchiato
The golden light of the Moroccan Atlantic coast suffuses the top notes of AZEMOUR, a blend of sparking citruses dominated by the zest and flesh of orange, set in clementine, tangerine, grapefruit and citrus. Coriander, cumin, black pepper and pink pepper add their vibrancy to this burst of flavours; blackcurrant and galbanum set it in a dark green nest of leaves. Then AZEMOUR speaks its heart with the freshness of neroli, intensified by geranium, fleshed out by suave, honeyed orange blossom absolute and delicately spicy old-fashioned rose.
Hay, moss and henna extracts conjure dry grass exhaling the day’s heat in the orange grove. Wood notes trace the undulating silhouettes of cypresses in the Atlantic wind. A tinge of saltiness evokes dunes swept with ocean spray…
AMEMOUR, a landscape perfume, as generous and sunny as the country that inspired it.
