Australian designer Naomi Goodsir has launched two fragrances, Cuir Velours and Bois d’Ascese. Both fragrances were developed by perfumer Julien Rasquinet.
Cuir Velours (shown) ~ An oriental leather. “VELVET skin , a GLOVED hand, SOUVENIR d’une FLEUR d’IMMORTELLE, stems of TOBACCO & rum, fortuitous RENCONTRE. A deep & textured perfume, that evocatively encases the skin like soft velvet suede. A tobacco atmosphere supported by notes of rum, cistus labdanum, incense & fleur d’immortelle.”
Bois d’Ascese ~ A woody incense. “A secluded CHAPEL, BLAZING dusk, moment of GRACE, DIVINE smoke, silent CANTIQUE. Incense woody (2012) A captivating & reassuring smoke. Notes of tobacco & whisky, are supported by cinnamon, amber & cistus labdanum. Oakmoss, smoked cade wood, almost burnt, prolong the Somalian incense with power & elegance.”
Naomi Goodsir Cuir Velours and Bois d’Ascese are available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum, and can be found now at Luckyscent, $150 each.
