The leading website for rare, hard-to-find fragrance, Luckyscent.com celebrates its 10th anniversary by creating a perfume quartet capturing the spirit of its home city, Los Angeles.
Los Angeles, CA, November 13, 2012 – Fall under the spell of Los Angeles with Decennial -- the unique new fragrance tribute to the City of Angels from LuckyScent.com, the premier online destination for savvy perfume lovers. Each of the four unisex Eau de Parfums evokes a facet of L.A.’s unique sense of place: its natural desert surroundings, contemplative yoga culture, vibrant and eclectic nightlife, and speakeasy noir culture.
LuckyScent.com collaborated with two of the industry’s top perfumers – Andy Tauer and Jérome Epinette – to create this perfume passport to LA.
“Decennial truly captures our city of Los Angeles in all its energy, laid-back nature, diversity, complexity and controversy,” said Adam Eastwood, co-founder of LuckyScent.com. “Fragrance e-commerce began 10 years ago with LuckyScent.com, and we became the virtual Spice Road for the world’s most innovative and captivating scents. The journey continues…” said Franco Wright, co-founder of Luckyscent.com
DECENNIAL - NUIT EPICEE
A nod to the obscure and sophisticated nightlife hidden throughout Los Angeles’s mysterious and hidden back streets. Nuit Épicée plunges its wearer into a dark paneled room of velvety, oud-like woods and spice, subtly sweetened with praline and almond and warmed with an ambery-vanillic base. Jeans, black tie and everything in between…or nothing at all. Perfumer: Jérome Epinette.
NOTES: Almond, cumin, rhubarb, cistus, violet, blond woods, black amber, praline.
DECENNIAL - SANTAL SACRE
Conceived of as a serene and meditative fragrance to counter-balance the hectic pace of day-to-day life in Los Angeles, Santal Sacré epitomizes East Meets West. The clean and aromatic smell of burning incense; the scent of unfinished wood releasing its heady perfume…relaxation, quiet revelation, and peace. Perfumer: Jérome Epinette.
NOTES: Ginger, elemi, incense, white musks, papyrus, Australian sandalwood.
DECENNIAL - LYS DE DESERT
An ode to what spawned L.A. – the rugged yet delicate, unforgiving yet captivating desert – is captured in Lys de Desert. Perfumer Andy Tauer combines this special, creamy botanical with the warmth and dryness of the desert, a natural space that has fueled his olfactory imagination for years. Perfumer: Andy Tauer.
NOTES: Bergamot, rose, green lily, dry cistrose, iris root, ambergris, dry cedar.
DECENNIAL - BOIS BOURBON
Bourbon – a spirit of choice which inspired author Raymond Chandler’s private eye Philip Marlowe, and Franco and Adam alike – has infused the sophisticated elixir that is Bois Bourbon, created as a softer, wearable bourbon fragrance. Detective Marlowe never had it so good. Perfumer: Jérome Epinette.
NOTES: Saffron, cinnamon bark, lavender, heliotrope, black rose, cedarwood, beach birch.
The Decennial collection is available in 75 ml French glass bottles with hand cut polished aluminum caps. Each fragrance retails for $150 and is available exclusively on LuckyScent.com and at its retail destination, Scent Bar, in Hollywood.
