Tonight is the second post in the "Perfume Series".
On my countless trips to fragrance shops tracking perfumania, I've noticed some important changes in the perfume industry. Manufactures are really embracing the vintage approach to packaging and even composition of scents, often using unexpected ingredients in modern incense concoctions. It almost appears as if the industry is switching back to its old-fashioned roots, when perfume was very personal and unique, often in the dry form.
Many companies are reintroducing the forgotten aromas as well as the packaging, so I recently discovered TokyoMilk brand, which specializes on the "old vs. new" method to impress customers.
"The alchemy of allure. Botanical extracts unearthed, crushed then distilled into this remarkably uncommon sensory experience. Glide across pulse points and envelop your senses in lush aroma. A fragrant temptation." is their statement.
These perfumes are made in a dry roller form.
