February 2016: Closer

Love is a funny thing. It sparks without warning, and sometimes you don’t even know why. You know only that your gaze has locked onto someone like a tractor beam, and you long to get closer.

Our first scent is the smell of a stranger passing by—the briefest of encounters—lingering in the air like a fog. Our second scent is an exotic gourmand full of the intensity of an early love affair when everything is electric and impulsive. Our third scent is the sweet smell of familiar skin—the smell of this is what I imagined the first time I saw you. The smell of perfect closeness.

10 Corso Como
by 10 Corso Como. When you're in Milan and want to overdose on excellent art, food, fashion, design, and culture, you go to 10 Corso Como, which is the address and the name of the eclectic shops that you'll find there.

Puro Intense
by Nejma. Puro Intense was inspired by a trip to Cuba, and here you'll find all of the scents that you would imagine: the lime and rum from a perfect mojito, the cocoa bean and roasted coffee dancing on the air outside a local café, and the tobacco leaves of those famous Cuban cigars.

Musc by Mona di Orio. As a note, musk is a bit of a chameleon. It can be clean as laundry, dirty as an animal, and anything in between. Mona di Orio's take on musk is a tender rose-heliotrope bouquet cushioned in fluffy-soft musks and nutty tonka, making it the perfect "in between." Read more...

I got a three-month sub to Olfactif for Christmas and I’m enjoying it, but wanted to say that for two months in a row to feature a perfume that’s supposed to smell like the streets of Havana is a little repetitive. Especially for those of us who can only subscribe for a few months, it would be good to get more variety. Thanks for considering.
