this is so exciting!!!
Rag and Bone is one of the few fashion brands I look into every season, and I love their clothes.
the concept sounds pretty straightforward and I really like those bottles.
Plus the fact that they make a coffret is very thoughtful and appreciated (at least fo me!) I wish all perfume houses did coffrets specially in these days of multiple simultaneous launches no?
This goes on my to-try list for my US trip (only a couple of weeks away! )
I hope they are good, P, but as always, I am cautious. And would love to know the perfumer(s) they worked with.
And yes, glad they did a coffret — looking forward to finding out the size / price ! They look like 10 or 15 ml.
I will message you if I find something.
actually I was going to msg you about posting about this and had the link on my clipboard when i saw your post. you neat me to it !
“Confident woods,” hmm.
The best kind
I feel an urgent need to hold one of those bottles in my hands! Thick glass at the bottom look so luxurious.
I admire their clothes and hope I’ll find them in stores.
I wonder if Encens is such a novelty. Whenever incense and pepper is mentioned as notes I allways think Iso-E (which I like a lot).
