Perfume.Sucks is a Swiss brand of niche perfumes. The project was launched in 2017 and so far 8 fragrance compositions have been released. Today, I have prepared for you a review of two of those fragrances. I hope we will discover the phenomenon of this brand together. Are you ready?
PERFUME.SUCKS is the scent collection of Swiss perfumer Andreas Wilhelm. For over twenty years, he has been creating perfumes on behalf of manufacturers around the world. Perfumes that are overlaid with stories that are conveyed to you through advertising images and packaging. The contents of the flacons are mystified, the ingredients nowhere identified.
For his collection, Wilhelm relies on full transparency. The bottles are transparent, the ingredients printed on them. For him the focus is on the composed scent and nothing else. We let the scent tell the story. Wanna smell it?
Yellow is a woody and spicy composition created by Andreas Wilhelm. The composition of the fragrance includes such aromatic notes as: cumin, balsam fir, wood notes, cypriol, sandalwood, ambroxan, patchouli, thyme and amber. The opening of the fragrance is an incredibly interesting blend of cumin, balsam fir and ambroxan. The whole rests on a wood base made of sandalwood. The smell is incredibly interesting and I definitely have never tested anything like this before. With each subsequent minute, more and more ambergris appears, and the fragrance warms our senses. At one point, we get a warming and sunny blend of ambergris and patchouli with a slightly herbal touch. I think Yellow is a fragrance especially targeted at cumin and ambergris fans. You haven’t smelled anything like this before in your life!
Green is a warming citrus composition, which includes: ambroxan, olibanum, citrus, cardamom, labdanum, hedione, mandarin, black pepper and magnolia. The opening of the fragrance belongs to the amazing power of citrus, which, in combination with ambroxan, creates an unusual and fresh experience. In the next stage, there is a note of olibanum and cardamom, which warm up and lead us to the next stage of the fragrance projection. Then, comes an interesting and pleasant mixture of magnolia, black pepper and hedione. This very fresh, spicy and aromatic combination is crowned with a hint of mandarin, which aims to maintain the citrus face of the fragrance.
Perfume.Sucks is definitely an interesting brand worth testing, as it offers unconventional compositions at an affordable price. You must admit that the brand’s name arouses interest and, although, you will not find fancy bottles, luxurious boxes, or original names or descriptions there, I can promise you one thing – your attention will be focused on what is the most important for the fragrance creator – an olfactory journey. You will come up with the name or description yourself.
