From the moment you hear the brand name, an enigmatic portmanteau of Floral and Haiku, you are instantly clued in to Floraiku’s main theme. The brand, created by Clara and John Molloy of MEMO fame, is so tightly spun here, so well developed that I’m struggling to think of a comparable house that is themed with such strict imagery.
I picked up the Floraiku discovery set last week, so here’s my first impression of (more or less) the entire line from the house. Floraiku are an offshoot from MEMO of African Leather fame, with gorgeous presentations but STEEP price tags.
Another challenging little stink water from beaufort London, this time Coeur De Noir, which means Black Heart in French, for the record… Almost romantic.
Here’s a review of one of my recent finds that I really enjoyed, Gallivant London. It’s a dandy Rose fragrance with an eccentric, rough animalic leather edge. Not quite the London that I know, but a good version none the less.
Here’s a little peek at one of the exclusive Xerjoff fragrances from the Shooting Stars lineup, Cavour One. Exclusive (sort of…) to the Turin Boutique, it’s a classy, refined, quite seductive scent. Pretty good tbf, it’s got some unique top notes in Quince and White Peach.
