Ten Best Perfumes of 2021
I’m happy to present today my best perfumes of 2021 in the company of ÇaFleureBon newest contributor, Rachel Watson. It’s been an interesting year perfume-wise, although Brexit, and much stricter customs controls in France, prevented me from testing as many fragrances as I would have liked (especially from USA and UK-based brands). With that – and my self-imposed rule of not including more than one fragrance per brand or per perfumer in my final list – taken into account, these are my ten best perfumes of 2021, discussed in alphabetical order:
Puredistance No.12 (Nathalie Feisthauer): Marking the completion of the first creative circle for the Netherlands-based House of Puredistance, this appropriately celebratory, special creation by Nathalie Feisthauer presented an unexpected, yet meaningful, olfactive interpretation of blue: the color is aptly reflected in the perfume’s serene self-confidence and cool, classical beauty, further embellished by golden gleams of understated opulence. With an opening as sparkling as a champagne cocktail, a lavish bouquet of rose, narcissus, orange blossom, jasmine and ylang-ylang, an enchanting halo of boudoir-like powderiness and gentle spices, as well as a chypre-toned base of elegant woods and sensual muskiness, No.12 gleams, sparkles and dazzles with the allure of a timeless, grand perfume.
