House of Cherry Bomb is thrilled to introduce Iris Oud, the new Grande Dame of the HOCB Atelier line. We have embraced classic French perfumery for this fragrance, blending an array of natural iris, violet and vanilla notes with our sultry and complex Oud accord; created of vintage and rare oils from around the world, with a base of deep forest notes, touches of honey, and echos of Arabian jasmine.
Deep, decadent, elegant and remarkably complex, Iris Oud is a perfume which carries many secrets within. We played with a melange of vintage notes vibrating with leather-smoke-dirt, enwrapping the more delicate beeswax absolute, powdery florals. Yet, there is a humidity within: chypre and fougère that resonate with moss and earth.
The fragrance recollects evening forests: silken slippers treading on wet, fallen leaves, satin cloaks caught on dark branches overhead.
Iris Oud whispers a tale if you take a moment to listen…
Iris Oud is available in a 1 oz EDP hand- etched bottle adorned with a violet leather ribbon at both American Perfumer and House of Cherry Bomb’s Etsy for $100.00.
FANTASTIC REVOLUTION PERFUME REVIEW FROM COLOGNOISSEUR
Pussy is a perfume meant to capture that sense of women’s advocacy. The perfumers choose to display that by using a deep floral accord clenched in a leather fist.
Resist is an homage to the last fifty-plus years of active non-violent protest in the US. Every march has taken place on the streets. The smell of the urban landscape is what the perfumers capture by using sets of accords meant to capture pieces of that.
“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.”
House of Cherry Bomb was thrilled to be a part of Jared Boechler’s extraordinary exhibition, creating fragrances for the provocative, haunting selection of paintings in February 2018 at the Sheen Center in Soho, NYC. Six scents were created for … Continue reading →
In its new form, this all natural fragrance entwines the mystery of dark, vintage ouds and million year old amber resins, with that of stunning Moroccan henna flower, drops of precious beeswax absolute, and tobacco flower. A shadow of ambergris, labdanum and chypre are touched with traces of delicate lily of the valley and Madagascar vanilla.
Immortal BELOVED is sensual and complex, an olfactory story of Gods and Goddesses, beauty, power, and love eternal. We have envisioned the fragrance of immortality using rare and precious elements from nature. Immortal Mine II resonates through time, reflecting the light and dark of this mortal coil, and the marvelous complexity of being.
Immortal BELOVED is available in these various incarnations:
1/3 oz (10 ml) oil based perfume in a hand blown, gold filagree, Czechoslovakian glass bottle. $150.00
1/3 oz (10 ml) EDP in a red metal purse atomizer.$50.00
“Violet Green Tea Honeysuckle (let’s abbreviate it as VGTH) opens as a green grass and cool violets. With wear the violets get more tangy, like unripe raspberries. This bitter fruitiness mingles with a sheer, airy honeysuckle. It wears exactly as the name implies – violets and honeysuckles. VGTH dries down to powdery woods which reminds me of a vintage dressing table – violet powder and lacquered woods.”
“Coffee Amber Vanilla is a full rich rendition of these three soothing sensory stimulants all together, veering close to the intoxicating end of the olfactory scale, in the house style. A gourmand liqueur that might fuel a winter’s day and night, entering into the spirit of black/brown sepia that sinks into the skin like an ink stain. It dwells the longest in the upper register of a new kind of incense that burns coffee and amber vapors so that you may then give yourself up to the worship of the concentrated brunette beauties of dark vanilla, chestnut, agar and oud. Try this and hopefully get it worked into your sweaters and scarves, and enjoy the cashmere softness it will veil over your winter wools.”
This scent, Coffee Amber Vanilla delves into the dark with bitter coffee, madagascar vanilla and a pairing of deep, amber, chestnut and agar woods. Many secret notes lie beneath, delicate hints of resins and ouds that call to the seduction of a cold evening.
