Now it’s time to reveal their respective Ten Best Perfumes of 2021 –Michelyn Camen, Editor-in-Chief
As for many people, 2021 was quite a difficult year for me: confined at my mother’s house in the South of France, I experienced perfume news from afar, cut off from everything (or almost: thank you Instagram!), fed by dozens of sample orders. Back in Paris in mid-August, I spent my days at a frenzied pace visiting perfumeries and attending multiple launches. A year of changing rhythm, I became attracted to more animalic fragrances and those with more subtle and fresh notes. And a brand-new love for galbanum! This allowed me to fully appreciate many marvels launched in 2021. -Emmanuelle
Here is my Top Ten 2021 Fragrances in alphabetical order
Sous le Manteau Odisiaque n°6 (Nathalie Feisthauer):We are often attracted by a perfume that evokes memories, emotions, or even scents of the past. But you can also be unsettled, then conquered by a fragrance that is unrelated to anything familiar, like jumping into the void with a (hidden parachute). This is exactly the sensation I felt when I first tried the magnificent Odisiaque n ° 6 created by Nathalie Feisthauer: an androgynous aphrodisiac potion, impetuous and shy at the same time. There is a graceful bergamot-geranium opening that coils in mystery with elemi, mate and vetiver. Then the notes of tobacco, hay and tonka bean bring a shiny and warm light full of audacity and originality. A surprising scent, which arouses curiosity and makes me succumb every time I wear it.
