Mark Buxton Sleeping With Ghosts, Sexual Healing & Devil In Disguise~ new fragrances

Mark Buxton Sleeping With Ghosts

Perfumer Mark Buxton has repackaged and relaunched his eponymous brand. By Mark Buxton is now Mark Buxton Perfumes. Wood & Absinth and Black Angel have been retained; the other fragrances have been discontinued. There are three new fragrances: Sleeping With Ghosts, Sexual Healing and Devil In Disguise.

Sleeping With Ghosts (shown) ~ "Seeking for the unexpected beauty...lost in the dark world...who is it ? The crispy quince opens the dream of luminous vanilla and vetiver wrapped in leather." Additional notes include tagete, peony and leather.

Sexual Healing ~ "A pure balance of a sexual exchange. A facetted fragrance around osmanthus absolute. Davana and blackcurrant buds enhance the feminine thrill. While elder berry absolute and cistus exalt the masculine sensuality." Additional notes include castoreum.

Devil In Disguise ~ "A heavy summer wind in Italy flirting with a purple silk dress… The danger of an invisible woman is in the air. The fatal attraction of rhubarb leaves and fascinating magnolia violate your senses. Then plunge into a dark and mysterious sillage." Additional notes include ginger, neroli, patchouli, vetiver and musk.

The Mark Buxton Perfumes fragrances are available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum. They can be found now at Roullier White in the UK, £125 each, or ordered directly from the Mark Buxton Perfumes website, €140.

    Are these names supposed to be song titles because if so this an eclectic mix (Placebo, Marvin Gaye, Elvis).

      Don’t know, but wouldn’t be a bad way to name perfumes.

  2. Tama says:

    I hope these are better than his last offerings. That was a disappointing collection.

    • Robin says:

      I didn’t care for any of them other than the W&A, which was good but not stupendous.

    “The danger of an invisible woman”??

    I needed a good snicker. Thanks.

    • olenska says:

      I know. I laughed too, but the fatal attraction of rhubarb leaves went down the wrong pipe and I had to stop.

      • Aparatchick says:

        Yeah, “fatal attraction of rhubarb leaves” is one of the silliest (and funniest!) things I’ve read in a long time.

      That made me think of the skunk that was waiting in the bushes for the dogs for some reason.
