"My new Rugir de Gardenia has vintage vibes thoroughly modernized, so the scent is in a unique place in 2023 perfumery.  I’m 63 years old now and my formative perfumery creation decades were in the 1980’s and 1990’s, so I always laugh at myself a bit when I read comments from perfume devotees discussing “vintage” fragrances from 1988 and I remember attending the scent's launch party.  Funny stuff, as by definition it makes me vintage.  But forty years in perfumery also allows me to share through perfume creations with my clientele what the possibilities are in a perfume.  Often modern perfumes of which I have many on offer at Dame Perfumery are sheer and transparent and one-dimensional simply because this is what the customer of today desires.    Here and there discussions appear bemoaning the European IFRA ingredient standards implying that complex perfume formulas can’t be made today because of ingredient restrictions, but this is not really the case.  Sophisticated and advanced modern aroma chemicals laid over a bed of naturals can easily achieve those magical retro vibes. The clientele for such a perfume is more limited, but fierce and focused.  For those in search of such a scent, I can only suggest my new Rugir de Gardenia."
