French niche line The Different Company will launch MajaïnaSin, a new unisex fragrance, later this month. MajaïnaSin joins the brand's L'Esprit Cologne collection.
MajaïnaSin was developed by perfumer Émilie Coppermann, who describes her work:
The addiction is the angle used for the start. In the structure, the head notes reveal these raw materials. For the fresh opening, I also used a Bergamot from Italia, very impacting thanks to its oil collected during the first hour of distillation. I added to it a chestnut cream, spicy and slightly salted, a perfect mix with the Sandal Album, rounded and creamy, and the richness of Vanilla.
Additional notes include bitter orange, neroli, orange blossom, ginger, heliotrope, orchid, cinnamon, maple syrup, tonka bean, ambergris and musk.
The Different Company MajaïnaSin will be available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
I have the Sandal Album!
Right between Abbey Road and Beggars Banquet!
Right where it belongs.
The head notes reveal these raw materials?
Not another marijuana fragrance! I allways wondered how they do them since the smelly part of is the psychoactive one.
A lot of people think Bandit reeks of reefer, but I don’t get that part. I’ve also seen cannanis flavoured oil for vaping. Stupid idea, getting people around you give you suspicious looks for no reason.
But no mention of marijuana — here is a crappy google translation of the French at TDC’s website. When they put up an English version I will update the article:
“Un Gourmand by Emilie Coppermann
A tribute to the Malagasy lands.
Majaïna Sin is the first Eau de Parfum in the L’Esprit Cologne collection, inspired by Malagasy lands, a land full of sensations, perfumes and exceptional know-how. Its name highlights the transgressive facet of perfume, evoking the high places of production of Vanilla in Madagascar and “aïna” meaning “life” in Malagasy. Its color reminds us of the amber rum of the islands and reveals its addictive side. The notes of Vanilla in the background embark us on an exotic journey in the heart of an intense and mysterious island.”
Is it just me or does the bottle look like foundation?
Yeah, at first glance I thought it was a new cosmetic.
They had me until “maple syrup.” Immortelle is not my friend.
I like the notes on this one! That said, I have not met a Different Company perfume worthy of a FB, yet.
Mmm, maple syrup, vanilla and tonka bean, sounds delicious!
So it is indeed delicious, but like most of TDC scents, longevity and sillage are quite minimal. I’ll stick with Angel Muse for my chestnut fix, better value for the price.
