Luckyscent Decennial collection ~ new fragrances

Luckyscent Decennial collection

Niche perfume retailer Luckyscent* has launched the Decennial collection, four new fragrances celebrating the store's 10th anniversary:

LuckyScent.com collaborated with two of the industry’s top perfumers – Andy Tauer and Jérome Epinette – to create this perfume passport to Los Angeles.

“Decennial truly captures our city of Los Angeles in all its energy, laid-back nature, diversity, complexity and controversy,” said Adam Eastwood, co-founder of LuckyScent.com. “Fragrance e-commerce began 10 years ago with LuckyScent.com, and we became the virtual Spice Road for the world’s most innovative and captivating scents. The journey continues…” said Franco Wright, co-founder of Luckyscent.com.

Nuit Épicée ~ "A nod to the obscure and sophisticated nightlife hidden throughout Los Angeles’ mysterious and hidden back streets. Nuit Épicée plunges its wearer into a dark paneled room of velvety, oud-like woods and spice, subtly sweetened with praline and almond and warmed with an ambery-vanillic base. Jeans, black tie and everything in between…or nothing at all." By perfumer Jérome Epinette, with almond, cumin, rhubarb, cistus, violet, blond woods, black amber and praline.

Santal Sacré  ~ "Conceived of as a serene and meditative fragrance to counter-balance the hectic pace of day-to-day life in Los Angeles, Santal Sacré epitomizes East Meets West. The clean and aromatic smell of burning incense; the scent of unfinished wood releasing its heady perfume…relaxation, quiet revelation, and peace." By perfumer Jérome Epinette, with ginger, elemi, incense, white musks, papyrus and sandalwood.

Lys de Desert ~ "An ode to what spawned Los Angeles – the rugged yet delicate, unforgiving yet captivating desert – is captured in Lys de Desert. Perfumer Andy Tauer combines this special, creamy botanical with the warmth and dryness of the desert, a natural space that has fueled his olfactory imagination for years. By perfumer Andy Tauer, with bergamot, rose, green lily, dry cistrose, iris root, ambergris, dry cedar.

Bois Bourbon ~ "Bourbon – a spirit of choice which inspired author Raymond Chandler’s private eye Philip Marlowe, and Franco and Adam alike – has infused the sophisticated elixir that is Bois Bourbon, created as a softer, wearable bourbon fragrance. Detective Marlowe never had it so good." By perfumer Jérome Epinette, with saffron, cinnamon, lavender, heliotrope, black rose, cedarwood and beach birch.

The Luckyscent Decennial collection fragrances are available in 75 ml Eau de Parfum, $150 each.

    Per the email on this, a 1mL spray sample set is available for $18. I was hoping for a slightly larger size.

  2. Thalia says:

    Yeah, it seems like they really missed out on a chance to do a coffret with 10 ml. of each — surely the sort of person who is going to want a perfume commemorating Lucky Scent’s decennial is going to want each of them in a collectible format?

    • Robin says:

      I’m guessing this is too small scale to justify more than one size? But totally agree, wish everything was in that size.

    They all sound great, but I’m particularly interested in Lys de Desert. I’ve just bought Un Lys by Serge Lutens, so I don’t really need another lily scent but there’s no harm in trying, right? :)

    • Robin says:

      Right! And if it’s inspired by SoCal deserts, it’s got to be miles away from the Serge.

  4. VanMorrisonFan says:

    But if the fragrances are meant to evoke Los Angeles why ate the names all French? If you want to reflect LA the names should be Spanish, Chinese, or Farsi…

    Is it only me who finds it weird that luckyscent just created a concurrence for his own business partners? I mean the idea is interesting, I bet the perfumes are great, but I just feel they went into gold-digger mode… same on ALZD, I just saw they have their own scent too…
