Top 5 spring perfumes for 2020
Envoutant (translates as enchanting) seems to be built after an art nouveau olfactive print, with an unexpected middle eastern influence. With an intricate and sinuous construction, resting on the natural curves of flower stems, with striking colorful whiplash lines of sharp spices, and abrupt valleys of oud and vanilla, the perfume is both reassuring and startling at the same time.
Tonkade’s red thread draws you in with a false feeling of comfort and easiness: it’s sweet, feels natural, it’s familiar.
Night is the smell of those long-lost, one-night dalliances that stay with you long after they probably should.

Although it is earthy-moist-mineral-fermented-fruity-resinous, the perfume somehow manages to keep an airy note, running through its DNA.
Enter Mon Nom est Rouge: same as with Biggazzi’s images, you can freeze-frame this fragrance’s development at any second – and it’s still a picture-perfect example of a perfectly composed, bathed in the right kind of all-natural light, bright focus on the main player – intricate but never too much – artistic type of wizardry. And it punctuates, with red, the whole tender love affair between incense and spices.

Alexandria is a real baroque fragrant tale, with rapid movements between its layers, with a Fellinesque sense of realism and hyperbole embedded in its proportions, with lavish nuances and fluid life and presence on your skin.I think I need more of this in my life, ASAP.
Introspective but not of a stern, disciplined nature, Shunkoin is a ritualistic construction of fragile ivory filigree details, no sharp edges, no tension, no escalation.
