Niche line Nomenclature has introduced Neo Rose, Palmetto, Pink Ivory and Wood Dew. The four new fragrances join Minted in the brand's Modern Eclectics collection.
Neo Rose ~ "A history that does not repeat but transforms itself. A rose pressed between the sheets of a suede-bound book. When finally discovered, it has not been preserved in its cut state. Rather, it emerges as something entirely new. Modern Eclectics’ neo rose is an ethereal floral being that exists for the modern age. A tactile geometry of Turkish rose is woven with black tea, patchouli and equally heady jasmine and freesia for a revelatory rose with just a hint of thorn. This floral woody scent is like catching a peek at a darkened garden, lit only for those who know just where to look." Additional notes include pink pepper, bergamot and white wood.
Palmetto ~ "A new point of view. Sky-high lethargic palms swung by hot winds. A hand slicing through tall grass. The calm that comes by looking down from above. Modern Eclectics’ palmetto captures the soul of a palm. It is less of an ideal and more of a complete picture: lush leaves, slender trunk, earthly roots; each element emitting its own aroma tinged with fruits and flowers and earth. Dry galbanum and crisp amber are balanced by fig cream, spicy angelica seeds and sichuan pepper. This is a green spicy scent with the power to create its own atmosphere." Additional notes include lemon, jasmine and musk.
Pink Ivory ~ "A dream state. An evolved realm of sparkling calm and kinetic kindness. A moment to remember that life really is sweet. Not saccharine, but beautiful. Modern Eclectics’ pink ivory is a creamy froth of clean iris and sugared carrot. An undercurrent of saltiness is a like a secret, a slightly naughty counter to the initial rolling wave of confection. Beachy tones from amber and cashmere are welcome ground on which to anchor, a soft landing for this floral musky perfume." Additional notes include pink sugar, violet and bergamot.
Wood Dew (shown) ~ "Stepping into the forest after the rain. The wood is wet, but the air has dried. There is hope and there is slumber, both on the horizon. There’s still time to touch the earth. Modern Eclectics’ wood dew captures a moment in time when the loud blooms are long gone. What’s left is not as colorful, yet it still pulses with life. A clearing of soft, fragrant Australian sandalwood and palo santo form this forest. A crisp air comes from Asian pear. Peach nectar, Turkish rose, and white musk allow this woody floral a soft landing that welcomes those who wish to ground." Additional notes include peony, matcha tea and violet.
