Last year at Esxcense I met up with one of my favorite people in perfume land, the ambassador of French Niche perfumery François Henin of Jovoy. François was kind enough to show me an avant premier of his new brand Jeroboam (while in prototype) -12 extraits that explore musk and all its facets. Here is an excerpt from what he wrote me about Hauto (which means ‘skin’ in Esperanto), “I have a store in Paris and we do have several tuberose based fragrances. Here, what makes Hauto unique, is that the floral bouquet is built on this strong and heavy musk cocktail that gives longevity, sillage and volume that have no equivalent on the “market”. It is made for hunters, men and women, who are not shy, and willing to attract the attention of their prey. You are not setting a trap with a “skin perfume” that can be detected on you by being much closed to you. You are hunting far away from where you are standing, and you leave the memory of your passage in a room long after you are gone. In the perfume world, tuberose is generally related to the skin. Here of course, we are not talking about the baby skin ;-).”
Today is the Vernal Equinox, First Day of Spring, but the weather here in NYC is cold and cloudy. Sebastian Jara of the YouTube Channel Looking Feeling Smelling Great, and founder of a popular Facebook Group reviews Jeroboam Hauto which we agree is a perfect scent to transition into warmer weather or when you want your love life to heat up.-Michelyn Camen, Editor in Chief
