Wide Society Symrise Master Perfumer Emilie Coppermann and Drom perfumer Alexandra Monet have applied their gifted noses to a marvelous new concept which I pray will take off as smoothly as it wears on the flesh: Wide Society, Le Parfum En Liberté, (which my colleagues who went to Esxence wrote up in their Best of Show reports). I received samples of their work last week, have just popped them open – and am genuinely impressed with their travel/eco-friendly perfumes (the entire line) and chic, minimalist/elegant packaging. These are world class fragrances in absolute form (extrait), not eau de parfum or eau de toilette: they are refillable, reusable, and wonderfully varied. I have sampled all six and winnowed out three for review (Wide Society Acqua Travelis, Wide Society Nubes, Wide Society Up in the Air); if you cannot find something to love here, then you haven’t smelt them all. Here’s the best bit: they are Affordable. Exquisite, affordable perfumes. Wide Society Nubes (Emilie Coppermann): Nubes is the Spanish word for clouds. In Nubes, perfumer Emilie Coppermann traverses the heavens as cloudwalker treading with elfin step, a light heart and vagabond disposition. This limpid fragrance melds several elements dear to my heart – namely those of angelica with cyclamen and vetiver forming an impeccable foil. I adore the mirror reflection of dry and moist qualities played out aromatically; poesy underwrites its aridly secretive myrrh, feathery rhizomal iris. Damp, dry, muskily floral and herbal: Wide Society Nubes lends us food for thought with its effortless intricacy. One doesn’t come across this very often.
