Perfumer and fine artist John Biebel of January Scent Project is perpetually curious. What a fine thing an inquiring mind is – and what a joy. John was recently approached by Avé Parfum ,a web-based boutique specializing in niche and artisan fragrances who wished to carry his fragrance line. How to best showcase John Biebel of January Scent Project Treebuoy without overwhelming the wearer? To offset its roundness and generosity? Its inherent succulence? Enter green mandarin, a beautiful heart note which enhances fir’s balsamic verdancy – granting a juicily floral kiss, for a start. The spicy greenness of cardamom, that blue-green-violet hued anise which whets the appetite, the vanillic/leathery/almond of benzoin to soften, sooth. The very nature of oil perfumes is intimacy: they cling longingly to your skin, your scarves and sweaters, virtually sillage-free. That is one of their unique charms (along with portability) which makes them a pleasure for those times when a perfumed trail is undesirable; when something meditatively comforting is the perfect thing.
