Bukhara is an intelligent spin on one of perfumery's most-prized materials - orris root. Its initial sprays play into orris root’s earthy richness and vegetable undertones; however, as the scent develops it takes on a misty, silken quality. And while Bukhara is an unmistakable orris fragrance, there’s a host of background players exaggerating the lines and keeping interest.
Composed by Ralf Schwieger, one of the industry’s most intelligent noses. Schwieger has a really interesting body of work. He's made blockbuster hits such as Lipstick Rose for Frederic Malle, Hermes’s Eau des Merveilles and Womanity for Thierry Mugler. But he's also made underground, cult hits with independent brands like Charenton Macerations.
Bukhara is a Finalist for the Fragrance Foundation's 2021 Award for Perfume Extraordinaire.
