This weekend in NYC I went for a Fragrance Tour of the West Village. First stop: Aedes de Venustas. So many new fragrances to try — one more tempting than the next, but the one that stood out was 1270 by Frapin. So many hypnotic notes: exotic woods, spice, raisin, vine flowers, pepper, candied orange, hazelnut, prune, cocoa, coffee, leather, white honey and a slight hint of vanilla. 1270 is a sophisticated scent with an intoxicating dry down... a perfect way to ease myself into a sense of reality.
