Strange Invisible Perfumes will launch Peloponnesian, the line's first Eau de Parfum for men, this spring. The new scent is "inspired by the Aegean Sea and the mythical aromas of the Greek Peninsula".
Perfumer Alexandra Balahoutis drew on her Greek heritage to create this exhilarating fragrance of devastating sex appeal.
Peloponnesian is a refreshing, provocative fragrance built with the ancient perfumes of the Peloponnese - citrus groves of orange and lime, vineyards and mountain sage honey, and a mesmerizing note of sea air, a triumph to achieve in botanical perfumery. Peloponnesian’s crisp, bewildering scent exemplifies the je ne sais quoi of well groomed masculinity.
Renowned for its luscious, narrative perfumes that defy classification, Strange Invisible Perfumes usually declines drawing strict lines between “masculine” and “feminine” perfumes. [...] When Balahoutis conceived of Peloponnesian, however, she aimed to develop something undeniably perfect for her male clients. Men who tried the fragrance loved it. Seeing women’s visceral, primal reaction to the fragrance, she knew she had hit the mark. States Balahoutis: “As a perfumer, I like to avoid clichéd marketing promises of attracting admirers. Having said this, Peloponnesian is simply incredibly sexy, and it absolutely has that effect on me when I smell it. It makes me think of a man who smells clean and compelling, who is well-traveled, heroic, and knows how to find the right scent, dress himself impeccably, and still radiate classic masculinity. This is the type of fragrance that women just want to douse their boyfriends in.”
The notes feature sea air, cypress, orange, lime, and mountain sage honey.
Strange Invisible Perfumes Peloponnesian will be available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum, $160. It can be found now for pre-order at Beautyhabit. (via press release)
