Chypre-Siam Is Here To Stay! Plus a 40 Love Update

40 Love resurrection

Success! My heliotropin hangup has been sorted! Chypre-Siam shall now remain in constant production. The last batch sold out almost instantly before the lull. April was a long and frustrating month, trying to go through hoops and bounds, sourcing the needed material. With the new batches will also come higher quality materials. The vanilla and orris tinctures I used previously have been replaced with vanilla bean and orris resinoids. The juice is noticeably darker as a result, like those ultra-vintage bottles of Coty’s Chypre! My new inventory of oakmoss absolute is much much darker too so that adds to the much darker color of the juice. Remember, I will not change my formulas except to source better and higher quality materials.

40 Love Update:

The 40 Love resurrection project is nearly complete. I’ve pored over the GCMS results and have managed to reverse engineer the long discontinued juice. I will begin listing the resurrection in my shop in about a month. I’ve been apprehensive about this project from the beginning but I will definitely push forward. My main concern is that I do justice to the original fragrance this pays homage to, and I want to make quite clear that this is NOT my formula but a reconstruction of a long dead fragrance. The moment these resurrection projects begin to feel distasteful and cheap I will cease their production. I am not going to be some cheap knockoff hawker! The next resurrection in line is a very obscure and exciting fragrance with an interesting story which I will discuss in a later post.

Many Projects are Underway!

It has been a good few months since I’ve last written. So much has been happening; Rogue Perfumery is transforming from a side hobby to a full time operation. I resigned my chef position in June to be able to dedicate 100% to Rogue, and there is so much to do!

Many projects are underway. A few we shall be seeing later this coming autumn will be the release of two all-natural fragrances in 30ml sizes, names are still pending. One is a chypre the other a vintage-classic style fougere fragrance. These are composed 100% of natural essential oils, absolutes and extracts and dissolved into alcohol at parfum strength. The compositions are rather costly to formulate but it is delightful to see the results that can be obtained directly from mother nature.

These formulas took a lot of time to compose as I grasped onto the giant learning curve. To be honest, natural perfumery was an idea I initially scoffed at. I saw it purely as a limitation; a set of crippling parallels, like taking a set of colors away from a painter’s palette. Perhaps it was my rebellious nature, like in my chef days, the way we’d roll our eyes as a vegan request made its way into the kitchen. The creations from Hiram Green, Ayala Moriel, Russian Adam and Ensar should be plenty enough proof to change anybody’s mind.

Also coming this fall will be Chypre-Siam in a concentrated parfum oil as well as a tuberose oil parfum. These will be offered in 3ml sizes, presented in a lovely cut crystal bottle.

Out With the Old,
In With The New

It’s January, it’s a cold morning. I happened to wake up extra early. June and the baby are still asleep. This is one of those rare moments of hot coffee and peace LOL. I’m wrapped in a blanket and the cat is laid across my lap.
2019 was a rollercoaster year. Having left my chef position things have been a bit easier to manage since I no longer have to dedicate 12 hours a day elsewhere. We are however a three person operation; myself formulating, blending and production. My wife June takes a big lead with production, plus managing and processing orders. Isabelle is our photographer and she has also since taken control of our Instagram, which is a tremendous relief.

There was so much I was hoping to do but time got the better of me. Here’s a few updates:

I’ve discontinued 40 Rogue to make way for another resurrection coming later this year. It is still available through our retailers while their stock lasts.

I’ve pulled back on Flora & Fauna. I absolutely hated the labels. I had a small batch of leather labels made but in the end I decided to completely redesign the label to better compliment the beauty of the fragrance.

Chypre-Siam Extrait is only available by request. I’ve just not had a chance to put it in full production.

Frags coming out the first half of this year:

Jasmin Antique – a jasmine grandiflorum soliflore. It is lovely! I wanted to convey the effect of the blossoms permeating the air.

Ishtar – UPDATE: Despite my efforts Ishtar still turned out to be an incense fragrance LOL! The smokey frankincense and benzoin really rose to the top! The final notes list for Ishtar: benzoin, frankincense, juniper, myrrh, lily, sandalwood and musk

and maybe Tuberose & Moss– a tuberosecentric chypre. This one pushes all my buttons because I absolutely love tuberose and I love chypres!
