FZOTIC POOF! is the lengthy awaited new launch from visible and olfactive artist Bruno Fazzolari
“FZOTIC favors the daring. My fragrances aren’t for everybody, however because you aren’t everybody, they could suit you excellent.” ~ Bruno Fazzolari
Artisan perfumer Bruno Fazzolari of FZOTIC commenced his journey as a visible artist – like a number of different unbiased perfumers who’re multiply-gifted and synaesthetic. In 2003, he started experimenting with perfume and initially launched a scent he had created to accompany his exhibit, which was entitled Mirror 5. In 2013, Bruno added bottles on the market by his artist web site below the identify Bruno Fazzolari; in 2017, he re-branded as FZOTIC, and left his publish as artwork professor to additional pursue perfumery.

Bruno has lengthy had a cult following, and ÇaFleureBon has adopted him because the starting: nevertheless, there was a three-year hiatus since his final scent, and our readership adjustments repeatedly – so when Bruno provided to ship me a pattern of his newest perfume POOF! in late February, I used to be keen and excited. (My favourite has all the time been Au Delá Narcisse – an beautiful narcissus-based floral chypre which I just lately bought after a few years’ admiration.) The time has come to introduce FZOTIC fragrances to our newer viewers – and the perfumer has chosen the theme of floral jubilation as his muse.

One distinguishing attribute of FZOTIC fragrances is that they by no means date themselves, and FZOTIC POOF! Is not any exception. All the pieces about it feels modern, trendy, and recent. Its introductory crisp apple word reads as a glowing ketone or aldehyde (they’re chemically associated): heady, ebullient, and gleeful. The tang of bergamot and candy orange contribute to this joyful high quality, quickly to guide us towards the euphorically candied side of three charming impertinent blossoms: tuberose, cassie (a member of the acacia household) and magnolia. No matter indolic nuances the tuberose and cassie possess are quickly subsumed, as they tackle a extra (eventual) bubblegum-like playfulness. Magnolia by no means falters from her honeyed, generously floral stance – and the extra presence of honey amplifies this aspect. Labdanum contributes a leathery animalic underbelly, whereas honey evokes fur. Cedar grounds POOF!’s composition, whereas a deft sprint of woody vanilla smooths any tough edges.
I’ve spent a great deal of time considering FZOTIC POOF! – and every time, new dimensions are revealed. Whether or not on a mouillette or pores and skin, this perfume shapeshifts – however by no means a lot that POOF! adjustments character. I’d enterprise to say that it’s extra of a prismatic impact. There are moments when it appears all sweetness and light-weight, carefree – and others during which it resembles a honeyed erotic growl underscored with a pleasant naughtiness. For good measure, my husband sweetly provided to check it – and POOF! learn as amplified animalic, fairly musky with a semblance of costus on his pores and skin. He was shocked to check the scent on paper, himself and me – every of them pretty, however vastly totally different. Our conclusion? POOF! requires the fleshly canvas as a way to absolutely admire all its nuances. It’s a welcome addition to Bruno’s extant perfumed pantheon.
