January Scent Project thoughts and musings.

 

Winter, Twisted Lily, Currier Museum, Perfumology, New Reviews and Olfactif

John Biebel

There is much to celebrate this New Year, perhaps most excitingly that January Scent Project was featured in a review of “log cabin scents” in the New York Times in December. 

Earlier this season in December, I had the incredible pleasure of releasing the latest perfume, Dinudisit, at Perfumology in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. This special niche shop run by Nir Guy is an oasis of great smells just a hop away from Philadelphia. It was a hugely successful venture and I’m glad to be represented with Nir and team.

I also curated and presented an evening at the Currier Museum in Manchester, New Hampshire, “Components of Smell,” in which I allowed museum goers the opportunity to smell separate “parts” of perfume in 14 different glass cloches. It was a broad range of smells from the smooth wood-musk of Cashmeran, or the pungent sourness of Oakmoss essential oil, to the almond and fruit flourishes of Heliotropex (Heliotrope reconstruction.) It sparked a fascinating array of conversations, memories, and very mixed reactions (particularly when people were smelling Birch Tar, that strong, smoky essence that helps to make the Russian Leather accord.) This was part of the Currier Museum of Art’s Art for the Senses program as part of the Currier After Hours event.

Only two days later, it was off to Brooklyn for the launch evening at Twisted Lily. It’s with much excitement that I can say we have a representative in New York City, a goal I’ve wanted for January Scent Project since its inception. The evening was a great success, and the shop became a packed house by 7:00 pm. Huge thanks go out to Eric, Stamatis, Olivia and Shawn for all their dedicated work in making this happen.

January Scent Project has also been the subject of a wide range of video reviews over the past few months. Tommelise gives an in-depth review of our latest perfume, Dinudisit (water flowers), the legendary Joey Cannoli reviews a number of scents from January Scent Project in his very particular style, the British duo Wafts From the Loft take on three of the scents in their particularly poetic and energetic review. Burvuvu has had three reviews in particular, by Redolessence & Brooklyn Fragrance Lover, Aetherelaist, Steven Sturgill, and The Scentinel. The release of Burvuvu has been a particularly fascinating journey for January Scent Project because it seems to have struck a chord with a number of wearers, something that you can never quite imagine when you compose a perfume... but you always hope for the best when you send it out into the world.
