French niche perfumery Teo Cabanel has launched their third fragrance, Alahine:
Created by in-house perfumer Jean-François Latty, Alahine opens with notes of bergamot, lavender and ylang ylang then moves into a heart of Bulgarian and Moroccan rose, orange flower, jasmine and pepper plant and then dries down with iris concentrate…patchouli, benzoin, vanilla, sandalwood and musk.
Next year, Teo Cabanel plans to introduce a fragrance for men with notes of vetiver and lavender. Update: Teo Cabanel Alahine is available in 15 ml Parfum, or 50 or 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
And as hardcore Serge Lutens fans are already aware, a new fragrance will join the export range in March. Rousse is described as a “spicy wooden concoction formulated around the cinnamon wood note.” (both above via cosmeticnews) Update: the notes for Rousse, according to Osmoz, are floral notes, aromatic notes, fruit, cinnamon-wood note, spices, amber, musk and vanilla. Not very illuminating, is it? See a review of Serge Lutens Rousse here.
