Aftelier has launched two new fragrances:
Tango is a liquid perfume, "inspired by the dance of love, sexy and smoky with roasted seashells and champaca; a heady floral with spice and honey notes."
Orchid is a solid perfume described as "the fresh and spicy floral fragrance of orchids in bloom featuring the mysterious aroma of orange flower absolute."
Aftelier has opened a new boutique in Henri Bendels in New York. If you'll be in town on October 18, Mandy Aftel will be hosting a private event from 6 pm to 8 pm in which she will speak about the history and structure of natural perfumes, and demonstrate the creation of one of her perfumes which will be raffled to a member of the audience. The $75 reservation fee is redeemable towards a purchase during the event; there will also be refreshments and Bendels goody bags. To reserve, call: 1.800.HBENDEL and reference "Mandy Aftel Event 10". (via Aftelier)
