Perfume Lovers London Chypre Glorious Chypre with Virginie Daniau


This past Thursday, 30th April, Fragrance Consultant Virginie Daniau lead the Perfume Lovers London group through a sampling of some of the benchmark Chypre fragrances of the 20th century. She began her talk by introducing the group to two key ingredients of Chypre fragrances, Labdanum and Oakmoss, before leading us through a sampling session that included such fragrances as Christian Dior’s Miss Dior and Gris Montaigne, Grossmith’s Golden Chypre, Ruth Mastenbroek, Atelier Cologne’s Trefle Pur, and Aromatics Elixir.

I left that evening with a natural perfume, Chypre, a fragrance from late perfumer Alec Lawless, who sadly passed away in 2012. My first impression of it was that it felt very green, not in a fresh way, but in the way that seaweed might feel, deep and almost soggy with fragrance. I also detected nuances of wet – slightly mud speckled – hay interlaced with really subtle floral notes and dashes of woody tobacco. I am really looking forward to spending more time with this one.

I have to say that this may have been favorite Perfume Lovers London meeting to date. This group is a hotbed of fragrance-related creativity. I am meeting lifelong perfume connoisseurs, other writers, people blending their own fragrances, and even those developing and running successful and truly niche, independent brands. It’s super inspiring to be in such company, and I am very much looking forward to the next meeting later this month on 21st May when perfume specialist, the brilliant Nick Gilbert, will be leading us through the work of Bertrand Duchaufour.

Je ne trouve pas le sommeil alors je m’écoute ce nouveau son du groupe Perfume qui défonce tout, largement mieux que Relax in the city. Je risque fortement de procéder à un instant buy le jour de sa…

Du coup le titre Pick me up est sorti (hier?) dans le store japonais et forcément je l’ai acheté parce que c’est vachement bien :)

CMIYC sold better than I expected

CMIYC sold 17k on Soundscan. That was actually better than I expected.

Mr.Mr “only” sold 23k copies in Japan and that was 14 months ago. Given the general decline in the CD market over that time, plus some Jessica fans leaving the fandom, I didn’t count on CMIYC selling 17k.

Obviously the 50% drop over the last 2 years might look worrisome. But I think that drop is much more due to how fewer fans buy single CDs rather than the number of fans declining. Looking at other artists (like Momoclo, Perfume, XXX48 groups - and many male groups too) I see similar huge drops in Soundscan sales over the last 2 years. If I had access to more/better data, like for example statistics over SONE JAPAN membership count and subscriptions for the mobile SONE PLUS service, then I could make a better judgement. But obviously SM (and SNSD themselves if they want to) have access to such data and they don’t look distressed.

(the huge drop from 2011 to 2013 on the other hand was of course largely due to lower popularity after their promotion problems in Japan)
