THE LF MARKEY EDIT – SUMMER SCENTS
Most of us folks in the Northern hemisphere are experiencing some pretty warm days this week, which has prompted us to celebrate with sharing some of our favourite fragrances for the summer months. We look at the top independent perfumeries that use scents that are best accompanying summer days.
REEK. perfume takes all the aesthetics normally associated with the perfume industry and flips them upside down. A quick Google of the label and you’ll find images portraying feminine power with tones of grittiness throughout, a message that the label base their scents upon. ‘Damn Rebel Bitches‘, our personal favourite offering from the Scottish label blends hints of hazelnut, pink peppercorn, clary sage and blood orange.
2. NO CHEMICALS BY COUVERTURE AND THE GARBSTORE
After years of being a hub for carefully curated fashion across womenswear, menswear, childrenswear and home accessories, Couverture & the Garbstore launched their own in-house fragrance in 2015. Aptly-named, ‘No Chemicals‘, the range offers the unisex blend in both wearable oils and candles for the home. Ginger, fresh floral, oriental cedar and santal scents are hand blended in France and as one would expect from the name, steer completely clear of any synthetic ingredients.
A concept that came to be when owner/founder was surfer Big Sure (naturally), DASEIN offers a range of unisex fragrances using a range of natural scents and vegan ingredients. The current range features the fresh scents of Summer (coriander, jasmine, grass and orange blossom) in a pleasing frosted bottle.
4. PERFUMER H
For Summer 2017, British perfumer Lyn Harris impresses us with her Water Lily scent, presented in an equally stunning glass violet-hued vessel under her label Perfumer H. The new creation works with cyclamen, black pepper, watermelon and moss notes (amongst others). Browse the full line-up at the stunning brick and mortar shop at 106a Crawford Street, London.
5. REGIME DE FLEURS
A cult LA label at its finest, Regime De Fleurs was born when self-confessed “fragrance nerds” Ezra Woods and Alia Raza left their respective jobs as a stylist and a video artist. What followed was somewhat of a frenzy. The list of admirers spans across the creative world and the list continues to grow. We love ‘Nitesurf‘, a blend of Tunisian neroli water, ginger lily and citrus. The inspiration? Venice Beach at night.
