Later this month, Anthropologie will launch Fictions, a new trio of fragrances "combining the arts of perfumery, storytelling and illustration": Paris: She Met Him in Secret, London: She Knew He Was Forever and LA: She Called But He Was Unreachable.
Paris: She Met Him in Secret ~ "an exploration of unauthorized love created by perfumer Alexandra Monet and illustrated by Casey Shagena. The scent is classified as a floral chypre fragrance, characterized by a contrast between fresh floral notes and a deep, sensual dry down."
I was inspired to create the souvenir of a French kiss – a bit forbidden, always romantic. A mysterious dark iris accord captures the feeling of her perfect black dress and the shadows along the Paris streets. The scent of her cherished lipstick, tucked in a luxurious clutch – sensuous, powdery, leathery – is left on his skin, the memento of a stolen moment. — Alexandra Monet
With violet leaf, dark iris accord and sueded leather.
London: She Knew He Was For-ever ~ "tells a timeless story of unconditional love, with perfumery by Gino Percontino and illustration by Jon Contino. The scent is an aromatic floral, characterized by a blend of breezy green and floral notes."
At the entrance of an English garden, the scent opens with a bright spark of connection, then the promenade continues– a romantic breeze of magnolia and honeysuckle envelops the moment and is enlivened by fresh green tea … finally, the warmth of honey and warm woods expresses the comfort and trust of true love. — Gino Percontino
LA: She Called But He Was Unreachable ~ "captures the bittersweet joy of unrequited love with a fragrance created by Josh Meyer [of Imaginary Authors] and a watercolor illustration by Marcel George. The scent is a floral citrus, characterized by a blend of crisp, juicy notes and warm florals.
Set against the backdrop of mid-century Southern California, I’ve opened the fragrance fresh and early in the morning with a zingy blast of lemon zest. Anticipation as the sun rises can be felt along with the scent of sweet linden blossoms … Then the fragrance of longing with a stunning base accord of salty ambergris and light musks. — Josh Meyer
Additional notes include bergamot and orange blossom.
Anthropologie Fictions Paris: She Met Him in Secret London: She Knew He Was For-ever and LA: She Called But He Was Unreachable will be available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum, $48 each.
