Shiloh is the second fragrance release from Hors Là Monde, a small jewelry company founded in 2005 by Symine Salimpour. The new scent was developed by perfumer Michel Roudnitska, but at the moment, its notoriety is based on the recently resolved five-month trademark battle between Salimpour and actress Angelina Jolie over the rights to the name Shiloh, which just so happens to be the name of Jolie's infant daughter (who by the way is "the first infant re-created in wax by Madame Tussauds", according to Wikipedia).
But back to the perfume:
Shiloh is the treasure brought home after years of traveling. Mysterious, bewitching and refined, Shiloh is the result of a fusion of delicate scents, precious woods, a hint of Rose from Esphahan, and a touch of patchouli oil...
Additional notes for Shiloh include lemon, bergamot, herbs, Virginia cedar, sandalwood, incense, oakmoss, musk, vanilla.
Hors Là Monde Shiloh is an Eau de Parfum, and is available in 50 ml for $128. You can pre-order now at luckyscent; it will ship in late August or early September. (quote and image via horslamonde, additional information via luckyscent) Update: see a review of Hors Là Monde Shiloh.
Roja Dove, of the Roja Dove Haute Parfumerie at Harrods, has launched three new fragrances:
Now in a bid to reclaim the lost art of fragrance, rather than the now ubiquitous art of marketing fragrance, Dove has unveiled his first fragrance line.
The three fragrances, one for each olfactive category, have been created with no marketing brief and no financial compromise. Dove has selected the finest natural ingredients to build scents that all carry one distinctive note: luxury.
Scandal ~ "...a floral, based on a heavy dose of white blossom that resonates with indole, an aromatic heterocyclic organic compound that occurs naturally in flowers and is redolent of a heady animal scent", notes include bergamot, lily of the valley, orange blossom, freesia, rose, jasmine de Grasse, tuberose, sandalwood, orris, balsams and musk.
Unspoken ~ a chypré, featuring notes of bergamot, neroli, rose, ylang-ylang, jasmine de Grasse, ginger, oakmoss, sandalwood, vetiver, patchouli, vanilla, balsams and labdanum.
Enslaved ~ a "rich, soft and sensual oriental with an overdose of vanilla and tonka bean". Additional notes include bergamot, orange, lemon, geranium, orange blossom, rose, ylang ylang, jasmine de Grasse, carnation, clove, oakmoss, cedarwood, vetiver, patchouli, labdanum, ambergris and musk.
Roja Dove Scandal, Unspoken & Enslaved will be available in Parfum (100 ml, £350) or Eau de Parfum (100 ml, £95). The fragrances launch in October at House of Fraser, Roja Dove Parfumeries and Roja Dove Haute Parfumerie. (first two quotes via cosmeticsbusiness, third via cosmeticsint.co.uk)
