Irina Adam NYC Natural Perfumer for Phoenix Botanicals and 2016 Art and Olfaction Artisan Finalist
Irina Adam of Phoenix Botanicals is an incredibly talented natural perfumer whose shimmering fruity chypre Peach Tree Garden has been selected as a finalist for the 2016 Art & Olfaction Awards in the Artisan category.
Sleeping With Peaches Lee Price
Bursting open with a delightful indulgence of plump ripe saffron infused peaches, Peach Tree Garden, an oil based perfume is a rarity in natural perfumery and evokes “the fleeting yet timeless beauty of falling fruit in an overgrown garden.” The leathery sweetness of labdanum, the dank hay like fecundity of tobacco and the dark depths of a beautifully luxurious oud shine through to a fruit that begs to be eaten. Forbidden fruit, that one imagines eating while lying on clean white sheets, the juice running down your lips and onto the bed; sated you fall asleep.

The bright fruitiness of this perfume is built up with delicious layers like oils on a canvas- yuzu and osmanthus and a deliciously mysterious peach accord that is hyper-realistic as if you can taste the perfume plucked from the tree. A spice backed Turkish rose supports this and acts as a bridge between the fruity beginnings and the rich and fervid balsamic dry down.
Notes: Saffron, Yuzu, Bergamot, Peach, Osmanthus, Turkish Rose, Tobacco, Ambrette, Dark Patchouli, Spices, Labdanum, Vetiver, Oudh.
