Bloom's carefully picked boozy perfumes stories that might remind you of whiskey by a fireplace, lighthearted cocktails in a Tiki bar, or a visit to a vineyard in the south of France, or conjure up entirely new adventure.
In perfumery, boozy nuances are imaginary and come about either through material association (perfumes with juniper will remind you of gin), or because, for example, vanilla, tobacco and sandalwood together somehow create a rum illusion.
So we present you with a selection pf perfumes which have aromas of a pirate’s grog, the icy illusion of vodka, a Georgian rake’s gin, and more. The whole bar, pick your poison.
Finding a perfume that smells of icy vodka was a true challenge, because good vodka doesn’t smell of anything – experiencing it is more of a burning sensation of alcohol against your tongue. However, Voronoi’s Censored is such a sheer fragrance that it comes close. There is a pinch of pepper and the dry elusive radiance of ambroxan. You can sense it but it’s abstract and pure, like icy vodka.
This perfume is like an olfactive replica of a Kamikaze cocktail, blended from equal measures of lime juice, vodka and orange flavoured liqueur. There is a generous portion of lime, triple sec is represented by neroli and petitgrain, while musk provides the boozy background.
This perfume is literally named after a cocktail: 2/3 bourbon over sugar cubes, plus mint and plenty of ice. With the help of a bitter, salty ambergris accord, Imaginary Authors add a nice touch of enjoying it on a veranda of some posh hotel by the sea.
Rake - as in a young debaucher wasting his inheritance. The word ruin alludes to the 18th century nickname for gin - ‘mother’s ruin’. To create this perfume, Beaufort fist blended their own gin. The perfumer used it as the inspiration for this composition, summoning a gin soaked, 18th century poker party complete with melting candles and gun duels in a wood-paneled gambling house.
A perfume that customers unanimously describe as “strawberry mojito”, and that was the perfumer’s intention. He wanted everyone to think of holiday, cocktails and carefree times. Some notes correspond to the actual ingredients in a mojito (lime, strawberry and mint) and some (aldehydes) contribute to that sensation of strong alcohol biting your tongue.
A story related to Sybarites, the legendary nation who made hedonistic indulgence their philosophy. One of their innovations was a wine-duct (it’s like an aqueduct for wine). Opulent Wood is a perfume formula that evokes the fumes emanating from the wine-soaked pipes made of oak.
