The bijou fragrance boutique Aedes de Venustas has launched its first fragrance—Aedes de Venustas Eau de Parfum.
The boutique opened 17 years ago in New York and specialized in niche perfumery. It is thanks to them that many niche brands were discovered and further developed. Shop owners Robert Gerstner and Karl Bradl focused their attention to other brands rather than to development of their own fragrance. The company refuses to produce “for the market” but stays true to its own beliefs and maintains its legitimacy.
After many years, the company offered to the market their own perfume, the long expected Aedes de Venustas Eau de Parfum. The fragrance is described as an evocative extension of the sensual store. There is no traditional fragrance pyramid, but the construction is round, luxurious, voluptuous and addictive, built around such notes as rhubarb, vetiver, red berries, tomato leaf, incense, green apple, hazelnut, honeysuckle. The perfumer in charge of cretaing this chypre fragrance is Bertrand Duchaufour.
The fragrance is accompanied with finely triple-milled soap handmade in France. The soap is a combination of the fragrance boosted with natural oils and an emollient vegetal base.
