Nomaterra Loves: Peace Love Threads Posted on 1 Jul 11:37 , 0 comments

NecessaryBaggage_6 When we met model Tash Moore at the Hester Street Fair on the Lower East Side, we knew immediately that we'd get along. Tash is the founder of Peace Love Threads, a fantastic e-commerce site with a wonderful blog to go with it. According to their website: "Our mission is simple: live the life of your dreams… & look good every step of the way!" Sound familiar? It certainly did to us! Tash's mission reminded us a lot of our own mantra, "Live your dreams, and smell good while doing it." With such a perfect pairing, we naturally had to pass along this website, as well as a link to a post that Tash wrote up about Nomaterra! Thank you to the Peace Love Threads team for the Nomaterra love! Be sure to follow Nomaterra on Twitter and Facebook!

  Happy Monday Nomaterra fans! We hope everyone had a great weekend; last week we came across this fantastic list courtesy of Refinery29 of the top 30 rising stars in D.C. under 30. We love the idea of giving young up and-comers (like Nomaterra founders Ben and Aggie) the props that they deserve, so we absolutely loved this story and thought we had to share! And, we have to admit, we think that everyone on this list would love our powerful and fresh Washington, D.C. fragrance! Be sure to follow Nomaterra on Twitter and Facebook!

The Art of Perfume Posted on 10 Jun 11:47 , 0 comments

2005_03_14_p323

Last week we stumbled upon a fantastic article about perfume making from a 2005 issue of The New Yorker. "Annals of Innovation: The Scent of the Nile" details the creation of an Hermès perfume, Un Jardin sur le Nil (translation: A Garden on the Nile), and provides a fascinating insight into the incredibly complicated world which is perfumery. From debates about how to  create a signature across a line of perfumes to listings of the countless iterations which Hermès perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena created and tested before settling on the final formula for the "juice," the article details exactly how difficult it is to do what perfumers do. Finally, the overall piece serves as a reflection on the different ways in which perfume is incorporated into major fashion houses, like Hermès. Hermès and Chanel both have in-house perfumers, allowing them to create a body of work that is cohesive and completely in line with their brands concepts. Many other larger houses and big name perfumes (such as celebrity perfumes) outsource their perfume factions, turning to external companies who employ master perfumers to create their scents. While this second tactic has been known to turn out some very successful fragrances, there is no cohesion, no authenticity or truth behind the perfume which links it to the ultimate message of the brand. By using the model found in niche perfumery, Hermès was able to create a body of perfumes which are distinctly Hermès and which represent all of the elegance, glamour, and class for which their brand is known. Read the whole article here.
