New conceptual fragrances by Mark Buxton
 "My work is based on personal emotional experience that I get, in particular, and while traveling. Seven of them and made my collection under the brand name By Mark Buxton ». Mark Buxton

I was pleased to learn that the famous perfumer - Mark Buxton, participating in the creation of many fragrances for Comme des Garcons, created his own perfume line. Collection of perfume "Metamorphosis of color and mood," includes seven flavors.

Hot Leather (hot leather)   - Citrus, bergamot, coriander, mandarin, iris, jasmine, patchouli, cedar, vanilla. Very nice flavor. It smells a little smoky suede and features an interesting scenario for the composition when sweet notes (vanilla and jasmine) appear much later. Iris is very noticeable on the skin. Aroma supports the direction of unisex.

English Breakfast (English Breakfast)   - Bergamot, orange, pepper, ginger, coriander, geranium, galbanum, marigold, jasmine, rosewood, gardenia, patchouli, vetiver, labdanum, fir, cedar wood and benzoin. There is a bit of a bitter mixture of coriander, galbanum and something that reminds me of cilantro. Spicy-woody base. It's pretty spicy, get breakfast sushi / sashimi instead of English tea, so I guess that's right.

Sounds & Visions (Sound and Image)   - Bergamot, mandarin, pepper, ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, rose, jasmine, rosewood, patchouli, guaiac, cedar and sandalwood. Good…. I used it three times, but was never able to think of anything. Let's move on ...

Nameless (Unnamed)   - Mandarin, cardamom, orange blossom, lavender, cinnamon, coffee, cloves, jasmine, amber, guaiac wood, patchouli, cedar wood and benzoin. It offers rich savory coffee chords and creamy sweetness (jasmine and amber, it seemed to me, and perhaps it is an orange?). A very promising start ... which, unfortunately, is not justified. Soon, the aroma becomes rather boring and not striking bright sparks.

Around Midnight (around midnight) - Pepper, geranium, chamomile, jasmine and styrax, patchouli and cedar wood. The aroma in the spirit of Buxton. Pepper woody, vaguely reminiscent of mb03, mb03 but I love more. Sweet jasmine base. Nice, but not for everybody.

Black Angel (Black Angel)   - Citrus, bergamot, mandarin, orange, rosemary, ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, jasmine, lily, iris, styrax, guaiac wood, patchouli. Mmmmmm. He smells the most commercially acceptable for me. Top notes remind me of Annick Goutal's Mandragore, but the basis - Ralph Double Black, but no coffee. This fragrance I liked. I would call it a wildly innovative.

Wood & Absinth (Wood and Wormwood)   - Citrus, orange, sage, anise, jasmine, rosewood, vetiver. Perhaps this chemical compounds of my skin, but sage, anise and vetiver - not what I would like to see together. Jasmine inhibits acid composition from the unbearable, but the result becomes a soap in a short time and does not appeal to me, despite the fact that I agree that a successful oil base rather interesting.

My feelings concerning these flavors are rather contradictory. It bothers me. I feel devastated. Mark Buxton - the maestro, Who am I? It is engaged in perfume business for over 10 years. Then why have I had such a strange feeling ... the mind does not agree with the heart?

I'm not against the progressive flavors. I - do not mind the ridiculous perfume lines like Humiecki & Graef. I do not share their views, but you can not deny their interest in creating a kind of flavors. Mark Buxton (considering the perfume notes) mixed together, united in the collection, but I see no integrity. They - sketches, drafts. I had the feeling that, peering into a giant box of ideas, I found a small piece of soap. Good, nice soap, but, nevertheless, just soap.
