Fabio is developing an Oud-based perfume, and in his search for the best suppliers of raw material, he found a fantastic distiller and producer of Oud Oil (organic) in Indonesia. The agarwood (in the pic) is being distilled and as soon as it arrives at Fabio’s labs it will be implemented for the new perfume. Fabio has made already several trials and the result is astonishing. Stay connected and wait for this amazing new scent!’
The Metropolitan Opera’s new production of Puccini’s Manon Lescaut, directed by Richard Eyre with Kristine Opolais in the title role, which premieres on February 12, will be conducted by Fabio Luisi, the lean, elegant Italian who for the last decade has been steadily delivering great sound from the pit. Enlisted by General Manager Peter Gelb, Luisi started at the Met with Verdi’s Don Carlos in 2005, rose to principal guest conductor in 2010, and was signed to a five-year contract as principal conductor in 2011, after he took over the last two operas of Robert Lepage’s production of Wagner’s Ring cycle for an ailing James Levine. He promptly received a Grammy for Best Opera Recording. This season—his next to last as principal conductor—he is also doing Cavalleria Rusticana/Paglacci and The Marriage of Figaro. Like Levine, he has proved, over 20-some productions, that he is comfortable with all the great composers, from Mozart to Berg.
“Don D’Amour is perhaps the most elevated, elegant and evocative of the perfumes in the FL house. To me it is at the pinnacle of olfactory beauty. Something rare and precious. It sings on my skin and opens my mind to the world of both dreams and imagination. There is something indeed musical in the notes and creation of Don D’Amour that I find stunning and at times moving. Truly a wonderful experience in the realm of perfume created by a truly talented nose.”
FL Parfums has decided to discontinue some perfumes of the sortiment. Those perfumes are now offered with a very significant discount while stocks last, for some of them there is only a capacity of few bottles (due to our policy of the small batches).
Why are we doing that? Fabio wants to focus on new creations he is working on since several months and he wants to reduce the offer in order to improve the quality. In October FL Parfums will launch three, maybe four new creations:
– a new Vétiver-based perfume
– a new Musk/Floral perfume
– a new classic French-style perfume
– a “all-natural” perfume
Therefore the perfumes on the above list are being offered from now on (while stocks last) at a discount of 40%.
Please consider that order placed from now until July 7 will be shipped in July: orders placed after July 7 will be shipped in August: orders placed after August 13 will be shipped in September.
Samples are going to be offered again in September.
