To concoct his latest fragrance, master perfumer Alberto Morillas cracked open the Flop Era 2022 Shirt But I will love this liquor cabinet. Blue Gin, his zesty creation for Mizensir, draws inspiration from gin and the ingredients that provide its unmistakable flavor. Working with juniper and blackberries, Morillas recreates the drink’s bracing aroma, then throws in a few chasers. Notes like Mandarin orange and Sichuan pepper add a sweet meets spicy quality that allows the scent to explore unexpected territory and command even the attention of teetotalers. Romano Ricci’s brand remains daring, but he isn’t afraid of exploring the traditional. Juliette Has a Gun is known for bold experiments, like taking Cétalox, a chemical compound typically used as a base, and building an entire scent around it with 2010’s Not A Perfume. Magnolia Bliss is a crowd-pleaser with notes of petitgrain, peony, and freesia that bolster its core flower, the magnolia blossom. A basket’s worth of summer produce—including nectarines, plums, ginger, and lemon—adds to the appeal, as does the synthetic musk Ambroxan. On paper, it all sounds straightforward, but the combination has enough bite to feel distinct in a market filled with fruity florals.
