MYSTERY'S MISTRESS

perfume of perfume 

irreplicable batch Jan - May 2020 (Millefleur #1) 

.....

As if to whisper your wishes
directly to the center
of the big open petals
softly divulging
deeply longing
hoping god
is in there 
somewhere
listening

(face into flowers) 

.....

 

Mystery's Mistress is a perfume extrait created by the receiving of all the perfumery aromatics that otherwise would be lost to the siphon of pipettes. Each time we make perfume, the remaining material gets washed in perfume alcohol, added to the mother batch, and then rests. This perfume "wash" accumulates new layers each time one of my perfumes is made, creating an incredibly complex, mysterious, nuanced perfume that can never again be created. In perfumery it's often called a "millefleur")

One man's trash is another man's treasure - as the old adage goes. Indeed, while we have what some might say is the waste, I can't agree. It's something different though, for sure. It's an improvisation made of its own will. Void of my creative control, but consisting of the most expensive, valuable, exquisite aromatic materials in natural perfumery, it's an honoring of these materials so they are not wasted but put into the art they were meant to become. 

BATCH 1 JAN-MAY 2020 has arrived as something I might loosely regard as a floral fougere. Opening with a lush leafy flower garden at dusk mood, it is familiar yet complicated, somehow coded like a poem you have to untangle. It floats with sensuality and curves along sides of pillowy coumarins, velvety vanillic notes, and wears gorgeously like a classic perfume despite its genre confusion. 

Enjoy this olfactory 'art' as a temporary oblation to the perfume muse and her very personal whims, knowing that once it's gone, it's gone.

This perfume reminds me of what I would imagine 1920's style of fragrances would smell like. It is a fougere style fragrance. Very mossy, slightly sweet, slightly floral, slightly aromatic and slightly powdery. I am wearing my sample of this right now. I have bought quite a lot of Ananda's creations that I fell in love w/ at first sniff that I haven't had a chance to really wear some of my samples properly but this one is very old school to my nose. It is the type of fragrance that houses do not create anymore. If you want something classic but will smell new give this one a try.

Mysteries are fun!

Don't be afraid to give this unusual perfume a try! I know it sounds strange - a mix of this and that, leftovers, etc. But it is a deep, sensual, musky, mossy, floral that has a vintage vibe to it. It reminds me of my grandmother, born in 1901, who partied in the "flapper" days, enjoyed "speak easies", and was an amazing dancer. She would have loved this fragrance. And every time I wear it, I feel like she's with me.
