Meraki – limited edition


Meraki
(v.) to do something with soul, creativity, or love; to put something of yourself into your work

MERAKI is a sumptuous blend of mouthwatering fruit and delicately lush, exquisite florals based around the Osmanthus flower, ravishingly seductive. Rose provides deeper floral tones whereas honey converts the fuzziness of the peach to a sticky golden viscosity. Patchouli, musk and sandalwood complete a mesmerizing sillage.

Meraki is a dark homage to what is arguably one of the most legendary fragrances of all time, Nombre Noir.

Nombre Noir, “The Black Number”, is a fragrance shrouded in speculation and mystery. It was the tragic undoing of perfumer Jean Yves Leroy, who allegedly took his own life shortly after the perfumes demise.

Lianne Tio/La Cour des Perfumes: I have been a regular customer for many years - nearly two decades. I am very happy to see that Lianne Tio is back in business in her new store, La Cour des Perfums. I'm wishing her success, which she deserves the most. LT never fails to give you that special feeling of importance. She sees you, respects and cherishes her customers, and has that unique ability to suggest what's your perfect scent or product. Her service is one of a kind, she truly cares, and works harder than anyone I know to provide the very best for all her customers. Respect and professionality are other key words. Buy with confidence; my warmest recommendations to Lianne Tio - the very best in her segment!

Meraki is a dark homage to what is arguably one of the most legendary fragrances of all time, Nombre Noir.
Nombre Noir, “The Black Number”, is a fragrance shrouded in speculation and mystery. It was the tragic undoing of perfumer Jean Yves Leroy, who allegedly took his own life shortly after the perfumes demise.

Under the direction of Serge Lutens and Yusui Kumai, they set out to make a “western fragrance”. However, every aspect of the fragrance, from the exorbitant costs of the composition to the intricate packaging was at a loss to Shiseido. In the end, the flacons were deemed defective, thus Shiseido destroyed all remaining stock for sale.

I happen to possess the coveted bottle, still with the original packaging intact. I confess I don’t have the courage to open it and therefore haven’t put my nose on the elusive fragrance. When creating Meraki, I certainly wasn’t attempting to recreate the scent. However, based on the notes, I endeavoured to create a vintage-inspired white floral heavily based around the delicate Osmanthus flower that is somewhat synonymous with the original.

In any case, Meraki is intended as a tribute to what Nombre Noir represents. The passion and sacrifices made by perfumers and their unrelenting fervour to create fragrances that are individualistic and unique. Those who spare no expense to create a beautiful scent and arduously toil to refine and perfect their art.

Nombre Noir’s time on the market was short-lived. Hence, the decision to release this fragrance as a limited edition – inevitably making it as rare and unattainable as its counterpart, is befitting.

Notes: Aldehydes, Bergamot, Apricot, Ambergris, Peach, Coriander, Rose, Osmanthus, Honey, Jasmine, Cedarwood, Musk, Sandalwood and Patchouli.

Perfumer: Rasei Fort
