Nostalgic scents top women’s list
Among female reviewers, a red thread emerged which spells out n-o-s-t-a-l-g-i-a. Nostalgic scents that send you back to the happy Saturdays of childhood and a life free from Tuesday’s anxiety. Nostalgic scents that, in a second, transport you to a lukewarm spring weekend in France ’92. Nostalgic scents that recapture that feeling you had, the last time you found time to bathe, moisturise and pamper yourself before sliding under crisp and clean, chalk-white sheets.
Women’s top 3 list:
1. biehl parfumkunstwerke - PC02 EdP
Circus and cotton candy. Giggling butterflies in your belly. Nice feeling’! These are the words perfumer Patricia Choux uses to describe her second scent, created for the German perfume house. The philosophy behind biehl parfumkunstwerke is to shift the focus away from visuals and background stories and, instead, let the scent speak for itself. PC02 does more than just speak. An extroverted fragrance, it’s dominated by sweetness, spices and a small pinch of flowers. A combination that’s sure to direct all attention towards you.
