AMBER PARFUM: Its Mysterious and Affective

Posted by Fragrance Belles-Lettres 10 January, 2011

                 AMBER PARFUM: Does your perfume leave a memory?


                           EXCLUSIVE interview with Justine Crane



     A fragrance speaks for itself. It tells a story and in most cases a lasting story. It should speak of romance, love, discovery, mystery and mystique. Natural perfumer, educator and owner of The Scented Djinn-Justine Crane created Amber Natural Botanical Parfum Extrait.

     Amber is a sensual and daring scent full of sultry moments that keeps your admirers guessing as to who you really are.
     There is no need to guess about Amber Natural Botanical Parfum Extrait. Ms. Crane easily and completely translates the resin amber scent into her own richly dark and mysterious aroma that is captivating with the sweetness of a woody aroma. There is a touch of powdery moments that doesn’t cloud your thoughts but leaves you with lasting impressions of a lush garden of spicy floral.



     Made with notes: tinctured vanilla bean, benzoin, ambriene, clary sage absolute, summer rose attar, labdanum amber, rose otto, canaga, honey, lemon, fresh ginger, jasmine sambac, vanilla bourbon, antique Mysore sandalwood, rosa damascens, tuberose, bergamot, gardenia tincture, green cardamom tincture





     Amber Natural Botanical Parfum Extrait is an elegant and intense form of memory. Shouldn’t all fragrances leave a memory?

     Ms. Crane tells us more about herself and why this perfume sensation was created during a fascinating interview.

    
1. Hello, Justine and thank you so much for speaking with me! Tell me what is The Scented Djinn all about?




Natural Botanical Perfume with a little natural skin care thrown in. The name for the perfumery came about after I visited with Jane Hendler of Ajne in her parfumerie in Carmel, California. I was writing notes about the experience I felt when opening the door to her gorgeous little shop, the feeling that a scented djinn had just whooshed through the door to greet me as I entered. It was really a magical experience for me and one I wanted to create for myself.



2. Justine, I am really excited about your the new parfum, AMBER NATURAL BOTANICAL PARFUM EXTRAIT. You described it as a lush, sensual amber and The Scented Djinn's amber is dark and mysterious. What is it about amber that makes it so mysterious?



Well, I think that most amber based perfumes and somewhat sensual, dark and mysterious. Amber perfumes are well-defined, yet run the gamut of softly seductive types to the darkly sensual and "mysterious" types. The Scented Djinn's Amber, in my opinion, draws you in closer and fills your senses with warm spicy sweetness and a resinous edginess that makes you want to stay right there, breathing it in.



3. What made you decide to become a natural perfumer, Justine?



Good question! It wasn't something that happened overnight, that's for certain. For the first couple of years I refused to even call myself a perfumer, struggling with the idea that the only real perfumers in the world were trained in French perfume schools and apprenticed to famous perfumers. To a certain extent that is still a part of my life's dream -- to train in Grasse. I suppose the final decision to "be a perfumer" came about when I realized I was creating more and more complex fragrance formulations for my skin care items. I stumbled and tumbled and kind of just landed in the middle of perfumery entirely by accident.



4. I noticed in AMBER NATURAL BOTANICAL PARFUM EXTRAIT, you added Vanilla Bourbon. This is very interesting!

I haven't heard much about this ingredient. Yes, I have heard of the bourbon ingredient but with a vanilla component to it. Justine, could you elaborate a little more on this fascinating ingredient?



This particular vanilla, though marketed as Bourbon, is actually a product of Madagascar and the Comoros islands. This grouping of islands, which includes the island of Reunion formerly known as Bourbon in the Indian Ocean, is well-known for their superior terroir. There is a long and very rich history of vanilla farming on all of these islands going back to the beginning of French colonization in the early 1800's. Again, it's the soil and climate that contribute to this type of vanilla's depth of aroma and all around lushness.



5. Lastly, Justine where can we buy AMBER NATURAL BOTANICAL PARFUM EXTRAIT and what sizes(s) does it come?



It is currently for sale at Etsy (www.etsy.com/listing/60712101/amber-parfum) in the 5ml bottle, but will soon be moved from the Etsy site to Artfire (www.artfire.com/users/TheScentedDjinn). I am in the process of separating the skin care line from the perfume line (skin care on Etsy, parfum on Artfire), and building a new website featuring all of The Scented Djinn products in one place. Until then, it's a scramble :)



Thank you so much Justine, for this great honor to speak with you. I have learned a lot and wish you much success!



Thank YOU, Felicia, for giving me this opportunity to talk a little bit about the new Amber perfume at The Scented Djinn. I appreciate you.

The word "belles lettres" is a French phrase meaning "beautiful or "fine writing. Since this is a term to describe a category of writing, this will pertain to my passion about fragrances. I will review niche and natural perfumes from all over the world. I write with passion but will use my journalistic skills that I obtained in college. Not only will I feature fragrances but I will feature new books on fragrances/perfumes, fragrance events and interview authors and perfumers.


I hope you take this journey with me and begin your own passion for the ART OF PERFUMERY!
