I've been getting my nose round the @frassai collection of five perfumes. The brand was launched in 2017 by @natalia_outeda and is Argentina's first niche fragrance brand owned by a woman. 🎉🙌💃🙌🎉
Sampling the perfumes I learned two things. The first is that perfumer @rodrigofloresroux , the nose behind Verano Porteno and A Fuego Lento, is the Flower Whisperer. More often than not I'll stumble upon a floral fragrance, find myself really into it and then discover it's one of his. Verano Porteno felt as if I were spraying myself with sunshine. As far as citrus florals go, it is 💯💯. An absolute joy. While A Fuego Lento is the type of jasmine perfume that simmers with the low-humming intensity of a neon light. Slightly dangerous but irresistible.
The second thing I learned is flormandes (floral + gormande) are a thing. Teisenddu, created with perfumer Roxanne Kirkpatrick ( @roxyrosedemai ) perfectly balances a powder puff mimosa with toothsome, boozy sweets without dropping off into cupcake land.
