Artisan botanical perfumer Charna Ethier of Windfall Fragrance Co. was my Rising Star of 2010 and  Michelyn’s (and Former Managing Editor Mark Behnke) Finest Pure Perfumer of 2012 – and that ought to come as no shock to any of you who’ve skilled her physique of labor. In August 2011, my evaluation was the next: “Charna is just an enchanting girl, with a big scope and a good bigger coronary heart! The fragrance I all the time need to strive is Charna’s NEXT ONE.” Twelve years later, my opinion hasn’t altered one whit. Charna has moved from power to power, which isn’t any easy activity – and the attribute which distinguishes her amongst the herd is her means and willingness to take dangers and tilt the perfumed prism in an effort to current new sides whereas fusing magnificence with originality. Each spring/summer time season it’s her customized to launch a brand new cologne – and 2023’s Windfall Fragrance Co. Magnolia Mist doesn’t disappoint.

Perfumer Charna Ethier describes Magnolia Mist as “springtime in a bottle,” and “a contemporary gentle floral scent paying homage to magnolia in bloom after a rain bathe.” This is a superb reference level.  The complexity of Windfall Fragrance Co Magnolia Mist complexity needs to be skilled in an effort to totally admire its tender aquarelle-like loveliness. It balances limpidity with substance; the wearer finds himself transported to a rarified clime – a welcome attribute of tremendous olfactory journey. I can’t reward it sufficient.

In springtime, the one fairly ring time,

When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding;

Candy lovers love the spring. ~ from William Shakespeare, As You Like It

Magnolia Mist revels within the marriage of two romantic kinfolk: the magnolia and pink champaca, every of which might be discovered on India’s native soil (magnolias additionally flourish in China). Whereas we frequently consider champaca because the pungent incense nag champa, the bloom itself possesses an intricate scent profile which incorporates notes of apricot, tea/maté, lemon, a smattering of hay and tobacco that are sequestered inside this blossom – together with a deeply seductive, honeyed floralcy. Charna’s Meyer lemon is the right adjuvant, whereas tuberose augments magnolia and champaca’s heady, buttery attract. Sandalwood instinctively flatters all of the aforementioned fragrant supplies with out grandstanding, whereas ambrette’s watercolor transparency each helps anchor the scent and contributes to a notion of petrichor  (earthy, crystalline, metallic). Think about – all this richness from a cologne – the lightest model of perfume, wherein there are solely 3-5% aromatics! Sheer and gauzy as Magnolia Mist could also be, it has stunning tenacity and a wispy indolic presence which underscores the whole composition masterfully – by way of intimation and innuendo.

Windfall Fragrance Co. Magnolia Mist is dreamily amorous and ethereal – a rare high quality for an eau de cologne. It’s extremely uncommon to seek out oneself wooed, refreshed, and elated by one thing so ephemeral, however Windfall Fragrance Co.’s newest enterprise achieves all of it with grace and lightness of foot. I staunchly keep that Charna is a mistress of legerdemain, and her newest oeuvre solely illustrates this assertion. Only a few perfumers can create such a seductive and lasting net of beautiful delicacy from an all-natural palette. On this smart, I put my cash the place my mouth is, and summarily bought a bottle. If nothing else, I might urge you, expensive readers – to pattern Magnolia Mist for yourselves – particularly if you happen to love floral fragrances and/or are a romantic at coronary heart. Candy spring, certainly. Notes: magnolia blossom, pink champaca, Meyer lemon, tuberose, sandalwood, musk ambrette.

Pattern offered by the perfumer – many thanks! It’s scrumptious. My nostril is my very own…
