Boulder-based Art and Olfaction Winner 2014, perfumer Amber Jobin of Aether Arts Perfumes was born in Florida close to the ocean; she spent her earliest years there. The wild briny seas constitute beloved primal olfactory memories. Amber Jobin sought a true marine scent for years without satisfaction: too floral, too tropical fruity, too sanitized. While I am emphatically NOT an ozonic fan, I’m happy to switch camps for Amber Jobin of Aether Arts Perfumes Charybdis. The perfumer has achieved that which is evoked by 90% synthetics, no true animalics, and only 10% naturals, presented as perfume-strength oil: the iconic windswept ocean. Personally, I feel it’s a real coup. Aether Arts Perfumes Charybdis is a highly personal perfume and a comforting one in its singular fashion. I find it soulful, an aromatic communion with natural forces beyond our control or ken. If Amber Jobin of Aether Arts Perfumes has managed to ensnare me into a genre which I bear little love, I suspect you might enjoy sampling it as well.
