Scratch-N-Sniff: Artist Pairs Paintings and Perfumes: Bedford & Bowery


“I was very aware of the role that scent played in my own life, often acting as a sort of remedy,” Boechler told us. “For these works in particular, the scents they are paired with are quite often the antithesis of what is being depicted. The scents are meant to level out the unrest of the work, just as I’ve noticed it’s capable of doing for me personally in day-to-day life.”


New Perfume Review on Colognoisseur-House of Cherry Bomb Immortal Beloved- Same But Not The Same.

“Immortal Beloved opens on tobacco flower a lot of it. This is the continuation of Immortal Mine which ended with tobacco. Immortal Mine opens with the tobacco flower which is the same but not the same just as Clarimonde in her new form is. Then we get two fantastic nods to the living dead as a desiccated henna and the funeral flower of choice lily add a sense of the cemetery. This is a fabulous piece of interpretation that I enjoyed very much. The base accord is like the tobacco flower as the recapitulation of the amber and oud ensnared in beeswax from Immortal Mine. Except in Immortal Beloved they are a mix of vintage ouds and fossilized ambers. I smelled a couple of these raw materials on that year ago visit; the fossilized amber is amazing by itself. Here the perfumers have allowed it to provide the power of the ages to Clarimonde.”


House of Cherry Bomb Immortal Beloved: Rebirth of the Ageless


Fragrantica review by  Ida Meister

Immortal Beloved is a hauntingly floral oriental chypre: it hovers.

It opens with silvery shafts of light on whose heels the warm/cool florals melt and spread their wings. I say ‘warm/cool’, because tobacco flower is precious and full-bodied, warm and a bit moist – while henna blossom always feels drily warm to me. Muguet always feels chilly and moist, slightly verdant even – but floral in the extreme. We have voluptuous, fearless flowers shrouded in a diaphanous shawl of ambergris [salty and serene], a sigh of labdanum, the vanillic salutation. Beeswax imparts its honeyed animalic tone, underscoring the carnality of Immortal Beloved. Oud spins a delicate web of sorcery [yes, oud!] beneath the silvery cocoon which grazes our skin.
We are suspended between the waking and dreaming world in a divine limbo of existence



EauMG reviews House of Cherry Bomb Tobacco Cognac EDP Perfume


Tobacco Cognac seems like something out of French New Wave. It’s late nights smoking cigarettes having indifferent conversations, drinking cognac while wearing frayed wool sweaters, shorts and dock shoes. It’s lazy weekday mornings sunbathing on the little beaches of a forgotten French resort town in a faded polka dot bikini.”

PINK HAZE EAU DE PARFUM – Nature in the New York


Pink Haze is heady and gives a powerful aroma much like the gardenia. Its aroma is maintained by not overpowering with its powder-like sillage that lasted well over seven hours.
It is grounded and earthy just like what Brooklyn represents with its lined streets of store buildings and subways of trains that go to every part of the city and beyond. It gives new meaning to leaving in the city. It gives beauty, warmth and a vibrate attribute to nature. “
