Beauty - Fragrance Bottled Up
Launching scent families rather than single perfumes is a trend sweeping the fragrance industry. But does that leave us bewitched, bothered - or bewildered? asks Alexandra Kleeman

I've encountered only a handful of people who've found that fragrance that truly completes them ... This blissful union of individual and scent is a bond I've sought and envied ever since I was eighteen ... More than a decade later ... I find myself still hunting for my signature scent... This time, however, the search is complicated by the fact that counters are heavy with newly launched fragrance "anthologies" rather than single "stories."

Hoping to engage esoteric scent-seekers like myself over the past year, brands such as Jo Malone, Rag & Bone, and Ralph Lauren have all released groups of five to ten flacons that are often loosely tied together by a theme, like a designer's favorite destinations, an homage to nature or to a bygone era, or several variations on the same ingredient - a move that mimics the small-batch indie productions that have gained such traction in recent years. When Louis Vuitton rejoined the perfume landscape last September after a 70-year hiatus, it did so with seven bottles instead of one. Even perfume houses that have found international success with single breakout fragrance are following suit. "We just really liked the challenge of working in a family," Viktor Horsting tells me when I ask about Magic, Viktor & Rolf's suite of six shadowy, effervescent eaux, out this month. It's a departure for a brand best known for blockbuster franchises with glossy ad campaigns, like 2005's Flowerbomb (still an international best seller more than a decade after its launch). As Horsting notes emphatically, "This is niche perfumery."

Lift Your Spirits
Viktor&Rolf's studio is a 17th-century Amsterdam town house that's said to be haunted. "There's a phone in one room that rings, but no one is ever on the other line," explains Viktor Horsting, one-half of the designer duo. "We had a woman come to cleanse with sage, but I can't tell if it worked." The smudging process did, however, offer inspiration for a new fragrance: Sage Spell, a blend of sage, pink pepper, and grapefruit, is one of six scents in Viktor&Rolf's Magic Collection, which launches next month. Enchanting, no?
