The Scent | Odin New York 08 Seylon

The Scent | Odin New York 08 Seylon

We recently had the opportunity to review one of Odin New York’s latest fragrances — No 08 Seylon. The scent’s harvested from Sri Lanka with an authentic interpretation of pure vetiver. Perfumer Phillipe Romano has done an exceptional job with his latest creation, laying the watery crispness of fresh yuzu follwed by the tartness of bitter orange and bergamot. The middle notes of spicy nutmeg and the absinth-aroma of wormwood blent with a rich base of warm benzoin, damp oakmoss and the soft earthiness of calming vetiver.

No 08 Seylon is a very inviting scent in my option. It’s not overbearing and though it lasts throughout the day, the citrus/vetiver blent works effortlessly and gives it some versatility.

Odin 06 Amanu for Barneys New York

Odin 06 Amanu for Barneys New York

New York-based retailer Odin has delivered way more than just clothing over the past few years, with their in-house line of scents and candles doing quite well for them as well. They’ve had such great success in this segment that they’ve gone from their 04 Petrana scent straight to 06 Amanu, one you’ll find exclusively at Barneys New York (05 has already been reserved by Chanel).

As for the scent itself, it features the woody rusticity of cedarleaf and the heady complexity of jasmine sambac. Rooting textures of amberwood, musk and live moss endow this earthy scent with a lush maturity.

The Scent | Odin 04 Petrana

The Scent | Odin 04 Petrana

Many people are under the notion that men should avoid floral scents at all costs, but I beg to differ. The right mixture delivers a timeless scent, and 04 Petrana is most certainly ranking high on our list of scents for 2010/2011. Without getting to technical with details, just know Odin has cooked up their fourth scent, this time utilizing rare ingredients such as Black Iris, Pink Pepper and Herbaceous Coriander.
