Born in Europe, however bearing an adventurer soul, with influences that span all throughout the globe, like a golden arc that connects, on an imaginary map, Paris, Dubai, and Tokyo.

 A brief introduction to the lineup, earlier than we go on to sip our Oud Latte:

Darkish Mimosa: a seemingly harmless powdery floral with some sensual musky curves. Veers into the beauty press powder odor that’s my absolute catnip. The identify makes me see it worn by a movie noir heroine, a redhead with freckles and completely minimize straight bangs, powdering her nostril, all correct and poised, after simply firing her gun.

Musc Fruite: contemporary mouthwatering ripe berries, glowing amber backdrop, and a fuzzy playful musk. Scrumptious joie du vivre, the juicy fruit carefree version. It conjured up the final seconds of the film  “Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amelie Poulain”, the place Amélie and Nino are driving their bike by the streets of Paris.

Animal Doux: leathery, powdery, with a woody highly effective texture infused with a resinous sweetness that in a short time turns into fairly addictive.  Sizzling & chilly, sure and no, the form of perfume that growls at you till it grows on you.

Petale de Oud: an interpretation of the classical oud–rose combo, construct upon a come-hither musk that makes it ethereal, elegant, and simple to put on.

 I need to admit, I used to be drawn to the LÔR Paris stand at Esxcence 2023, even earlier than smelling something. Like Pepe le Pew, floating in mid-air, eyes open vast, I used to be referred to as in by the superior glossy visible enchantment of the stand. The mix of white, black, mint inexperienced, and gold, the cool fonts, the symbols on the bottles, the proportions, all the things was so spot on it introduced out my internal Patrick Bateman, the wall avenue promoting company version. “Have a look at that refined off-white coloring. The tasteful thickness of it. Oh, my God. It even has a watermark!”

 A really cool thought is that Rola invented a brand new “fragrance language”, decoding the very summary language of scent description into a brand new visible kind, so folks would know what to anticipate simply by wanting on the bottle. Ten symbols characterize the olfactive households discovered within the fragrances, and every bottle and pattern has three symbols written on them. I additionally favored the contemporary method of presenting the scents on the website, with no rabbit-out-of-the-hat storytelling, no olfactive pyramids, simply specializing in the temper of the perfume, and a few key phrases, to set your expectations heading in the right direction.

The bottles are glossy, heavy, and really tactile, nearly like some form of sensory fidget toy for fragrance lovers, with symbols embedded on the aspect. After I noticed them the primary time my thoughts made an affiliation I can’t shake off now  – as from afar they made me consider Reiki symbols. Reiki, the identical as perfumery, offers with an invisible but highly effective influence on our senses. An historic therapeutic apply that believes vitality could be transferred by contact, and with symbols that enable the practitioners to make use of give attention to particular functions. And while normally symbols solely have an effect on the unconscious, Reiki symbols harness and set off particular energies, with intent enjoying an important function.  Fondling my bottle of Oud Latte and watching its symbols, it was fairly clear what path it was placing me on. The model’s description quick description sums it up completely: “Scrumptious, spicy, candy, but balanced. Charming with a robust presence and sharp character. Limitless, adventurous, and tender. You may’t assist however need to get nearer. Very versatile and adaptable.” LÔR Paris Oud Latte is all these items. A clear fluffy musk – elevated pores and skin – odor that’s mushy and tender and blurs the sides of the spices. My thoughts jumps to the affiliation of cardamom espresso right here, however I simply odor the new white steam of the frothy milk and the spices sprinkled on high, not the bitterness of the espresso. The sweetness behind the milk is barely toasted, so a tonka is perhaps concerned, subsequent to a clean vanilla. The oud is felt as a woody clean base on which the entire ethereal building stands, creamy, comforting, like a fluffy cashmere sweater that wears like a second pores and skin.

LÔR Paris Oud Latte is the form of scent that retains me anchored in actuality, and dare I say, makes me romanticize it in a really laid-back and easy method (like a layer of genZ-urban- zen that’s fairly a overseas idea to an overanalytical tormented previous millennial soul like myself).

Strolling down a bustling metropolis avenue, headphones with Tame Impala’s Borderline loud in my ears (sure, hipster core vibes) surrounded by a deliciously addictive sturdy mix of spicy and milky candy aura. Seems like the primary sip of a robust, completely brewed latte on a Monday morning – a jolt to your senses, adopted by a soothing hum.  Made my thoughts wander once more, pondering of “brown noise”  also called Brownian noise, a sort of sign or noise that has increased vitality at decrease frequencies, leading to a deep, bass sound that some folks discover calming or soothing.  This perfume delves deeper into decrease frequencies, exploring profound notes which are nonetheless soothing and grounding, regardless of their stronger repertoire. What we’re left with is a private, sensory bubble amidst a chaotic world that feels each comforting as a mushy blanket and glossy and trendy to be worn out proudly, with the stiffest higher lip.

Class: No pyramid communicated by the model, simply the olfactive classes: Ambery, Woody, Spicy 

Notes perceived: candy vanilla, roasted tonka, creamy woods, barista-level milk froth, iris ivory powderiness, fuzzy cashmere sweater, jazz background, and really clear, delicate, and fluffy musk with an ethereal presence
