And the chapter in the book by Frederic Mull "On the creation of fragrances" is devoted to this particular scent.

Cologne 212 Vip Men, Carolina Herrera
An exemplary masculine scent that Carolina Herrera perfumers recommend to wear in the evening for greater reliability.And they are quite right, given the ambitious pyramid: the top note is spicy mint, the middle notes are chilled vodka, hot ginger and a little apple, and the bottom notes are wood, tonka and amber. Moreover, all this is revealed in an unpredictable sequence: someone feels alcohol, someone - woody notes, and someone - a pleasant chocolate sweetness. In any case, a win-win for the "star of the evening"!

BeautyHack CMM Manager Alexandra Grishina got acquainted with this perfume in 2016. “Wandering between the aisles of the Printemps cosmetics and perfumery department in search of a present for my mother, I met a consultant who handed me the cherished blotter with golden letters. And it was love from the first breath. In the description of this fragrance, you will find a beautiful phrase that very clearly describes the state of the girl who proudly carries this fragrance: “Resolute, unapproachable and proud - these women achieve everything on their own. Rapidly achieving their goals, they leave behind only a fruity sillage, intoxicating to goosebumps.

Eau de parfum Kirkè, Tiziana Terenzi
Few know that the history of the niche perfume house Tiziana Terenzi began with the production of church candles.Guglielmo Terenzi became interested in perfumery and began to create also men's colognes, independently growing raw materials for perfume compositions. His grandchildren, Paolo and Titiana, continued the business and in 2012 presented the first fragrance, Tiziana Terenzi.
Kirkè is one of the brand's most famous creations. The sensual perfume was dedicated to the goddess Circe, so the notes are appropriate: an oriental accord of sandalwood, vanilla and musk opens up perfectly in a trail that will definitely place you in the spotlight.

Eau de Toilette Daisy Love, Marc Jacobs
Back in April, we admired the advertising campaign of a new fragrance in the Daisy line: Kaia Gerber frolicked in the ocean and wondered about chamomile - “loves, does not love”, and we wondered when the eau de toilette would appear in Russia. Anastasia Speranskaya, senior editor of BeautyHack, was one of the first to test the new version of the fragrance:
“The first Daisy scent was released back in 2007, and now it is a real calling card for millennials - fresh fruity and floral notes are associated with summer, chiffon dresses and chamomile meadows. The large white flower on the lid of the new Daisy Love is not without reason: chamomile reigns in the heart of the fragrance, and the pyramid also has an accent of scalesia, a rare tree from the Galapagos that blooms with yellow fragrant buds. Maestro Alberto Morillas has added a cool and sonorous note of crystallized cloudberries to the composition - it is she who gives the fragrance freshness."
Price: 3 589 rub.
Eau de parfum Oud Silk Mood, Maison Francis Kukdjian
This eau de parfum will make you look at oriental woody scents in a new way. Six years ago, Francis Kurkdjian, the perfumer and creator of the brand, turned his attention to the notes of the Oud tree - typical chords of the representatives of the oriental fragrance family, and made the whole world look at these notes in a new way. He gave them "Western" motives, adding accents of olfactory notes of rose, vanilla and patchouli.
Only when you look at the bottle, you immerse yourself in the fairy tales of the East - it resembles a precious vessel or a small oriental palace (and the fact that it is made of dark glass is not only a design decision - the fragrance needs protection from direct sunlight). The perfume does not “crush” with a typical heavy oriental composition. When applied, the scent of a rose is felt, which reveals a light trail of bergamot and floral notes. The fragrance itself has a balance between the mysterious east and the progressive west - the perfume could be worn by an Arab princess or a businesswoman from Wall Street. Best of all, the scent stays with you all day and gently envelops you like silk.
Price: 25 500 rub.
Eau de toilette Alien, Thierry Mugler
The French Fashion House released its first legendary "newcomer" in 2005, followed by a series of re-releases. The last two appeared this year - Man for men and floral Flora Futura. But acquaintance with the scent should start from the basics - the first Alien with woody and jasmine notes. Jasmine is the first thing you smell when you breathe in the scent. A little later, amber and woody accords will open. The manager of the BeautyHack project, Anastasia Lyagushkina, confidently singles out citrus, although it is not declared in the pyramid. Jasmine, lilac, iron notes, tobacco - if applied correctly (you need just a little bit of it), the trail will be magical!
Price: 5 255 rub. (30 ml)
Eau de toilette Replica Lipstick On, Maison Margiela
BeautyHack columnist and beauty blogger Elvira Chabakauri shared their opinion about the fragrance:
“The entire Replica series of the brand is beautiful, in my opinion, but my favorite is the scent of lipstick. It really smells like granny's vintage lipstick - sweet toffee powder.
The Lipstick On mood creates a special one - the very same when you put on makeup as a weapon and for self-expression, you are not afraid of bright and juicy colors and you do not strive for naturalness. Although I'm sure many will find the scent very gentle and calm, but for me everything is different."
Price: 8 365 rub.
Toilet water Omnia Pink Sapphire, Bvlgari
In the spring, the Omnia family of fragrances introduced a whimsical novelty that instantly creates a sunny mood - Omnia Pink Sapphire Eau de Toilette. Perfumers were inspired by the gem of the same name, which symbolizes youth, which is why it is primarily aimed at girls from generation Z. BeautyHack editor Natalia Kapitsa characterizes the fragrance as follows: “Freshness of a spring garden after rain”. She liked that Pink Sapphire does not leave behind a heavy sillage, but envelops in a light cloud during the day.
And also the eau de toilette will attract the attention of the opposite sex thanks to the notes of vanilla and musk in the base - they act on the nerve receptors and cause relaxation. But do not worry - you will hardly want to sleep, because the necessary "spark" adds a chord of pink pepper.
Price (65 ml): 6 249 rubles.
Toilet water Original Musk Blend 1, Kiehl's
Permanent muse of J'Adore Dior fragrance Charlize Theron puts it aside from time to time for the sake of Original Musk from Kiehl's! The American brand, known primarily for facial and hair care products, has nevertheless managed to create a small but proud line of perfumes and even nurture a bestseller. Original Musk was invented in 2004, but fans did not immediately understand it due to the bright musk trail overlapping the orange-floral notes. There is only one conclusion: choose a fragrance only after the test - it is sensitive to the weather and even your mood.
Price: 3 450 rub.
Eau de parfum Lady Million Lucky, Paco Rabanne
Lady Million Lucky is a confident choice of the senior editor of BeautyHack Anastasia Speranskaya:
“She’s so lucky, she’s a star,” the girls will think to themselves, quoting the song of the same name by Britney Spears, after meeting the new Paco Rabanne fragrance. This is the flanker of the famous Lady Million perfume, which was conceived as a fragrance for brave girls who feel like a million - no less. All of Paco Rabanne's perfume launches are reminiscent of the dresses of the eminent designer - bright, not similar to anything, but at the same time ideal for almost everyone and even addictive.
LadyMillionLucky has become fresher and more sensual - a delicious cocktail of raspberries and honey is now complemented by velvety woody notes and hints of hazelnuts. And in the heart of the fragrance is the scent of rosebuds”.
Price: 6 800 rub. (50 ml)
