J. Crew + Arquiste No. 31 & No. 57 ~ new fragrances

J. Crew + Arquiste No. 31 & No. 57

J. Crew will launch two fragrances, No. 31 and No. 57, developed in collaboration with niche brand Arquiste. The fragrances were developed by perfumers Rodrigo Flores-Roux and Yann Vasnier, who were asked to...

...conjure up the Jan. 5, 1943, opening of “Exhibition by 31 Women,” the first all-female modern art show in the U.S., curated by Peggy Guggenheim and displayed at her Art of This Century Gallery on East 57th Street in New York.

No. 31 ~ "attempts to capture the excitement of the crowd and essence of the cocktails", with red vermouth, eau-de-vie accord, rose and damson plum.

No. 57 ~ "meant to reflect the warmth, wood and amber glow in Guggenheim’s gallery", with aged whiskey, cinnamon, labdanum and vanilla.

J. Crew + Arquiste No. 31 and No. 57 will be available in 10 ($25) and 50 ml ($78). They are due to launch late this month.

    A lot cheaper than the arquiste line and they sound interesting so I’ll have to seek them out

      Yes…and 10 ml! Yay.

        Right?? It’s almost too good to be true! But J.Crew seems to be doing a lot of high-end collaborations these days (Ray-Ban, Barbour) where the products are quite faithful to their home brand, so, one can only hope that trend will continue??

    I tried these today & ended up buying a rollerball of No. 31. Both scents are nice & wearable; they remind me a little of the Elizabeth James Nirvana duo, though a bit more refined. There is definitely nothing bold or groundbreaking about either, but they could have been much, much worse.
