"Black amber plum is nuanced by the aroma of patchouli, pink pepper, and Japanese violet. Notes: Black Amber Plum, Pink Pepper, Japanese Violet, Indonesian Jasmine, Patchouli Style: Seductive. Alluring. Provocative"

"We started with the dark rich cherries and black amber plum accord and, for sensuality, we added night-blooming Indonesian jasmine and Japanese violet," said [Laura] Slatkin. "For freshness, we added pink peppercorns and, to give the fragrance a rich body, we added oak moss and patchouli. The result is simply extraordinary. Black Tulip is the most seductive fragrance I've created yet." --Press Release 02/07/2017

They cost less than a full-size fragrance and look damn cute - no wonder purse-portable rollerballs are having a moment! These seven make up a stellar scent wardrobe.

Fragrance Files - Popping Bottles
From the heady aroma to the mood-altering effects, a beautiful perfume has a lot in common with a great wine - just ask a sommelier. Divinely scented and crafted by trained specialists, perfumes can be sophisticated blends of distinguished provenance or simpler mixtures in flashy glass bottles that tell a story. Likewise, the same could be said of a wine. We asked Sarah Clarke, general manager of Osteria Mozza and beverage director for Mozza Restaurant Group in Los Angeles, to test out some new perfumes, giving us her first impressions (before she knew the notes used in the blend), and then a wine pairing and review after we gave her more details on the scents.

Nest Black Tulip ($68 for 1.7 oz.,
FIRST IMPRESSION: "You know when cantaloupe gets really ripe? There's definitely that melon-y, musky quality here."
FRAGRANCE NOTES: An Oriental blend of black plum, patchouli, pink pepper, and Japanese violet.
WINE EQUIVALENT: "I'm going to get a little crazy and say it's reminiscent of Gewürztraminer, a white that's spicy and has some candied orange peel."
SOMMELIER VERDICT: "This perfume was tricky, because it's so complex. The muskiness is there, but also the melon notes and even some higher tones of grapefruit peel."

Beautiful Perfumes are Like Wine:
