Real optimism is about more than just something to make you smile. It’s about more than just having a giggle. The top-to-bottom woods explored in Vaunt’s The Optimist is an uber intelligent spin on the subject that will make you think twice.
Woody smells make us think about trees. Trees are great. But, trees also have deep roots, they stand tall and reach way up into the sky. Trees are tenacious, strong and reassuring.
And that’s what The Optimist evokes for us. Mix in a dash of understated sophistication, and you’ve got one cracking perfume.
So, throw those shoulders back. Head up. Go get ‘em, tiger.
Elea is a space your nose may have visited before but its interior design elevates it into another level.
It’s a bright, well-pressed fragrance with squeaky-clean citrus notes, polished woods and suave musks. It’s the olfactory equivalent of an Architectural Digest cover featuring a California mid-century modern house designed with a minimal but spacious aesthetic where even the smallest details sport a considered, flawless finish.
Wearing Edhen is like watching professional ballet dancers pirouette across a stage. To you in the audience, their movements look so easy and effortless it’d almost be easy to forget the years of training it took to achieve them. Edhen is this perfect dance between its primary stars, fig and jasmine. Both aromas have a heady, voluptuous character; however, in Edhen they’re balanced with the lightness of a breeze meandering through a sun-drenched vista.
Aestas is an interesting character. Neroli-forward scents have a tendency to go one of two ways - either super bright and cologne-like or into white floral orange blossom territory. Aestas edges its neroli in vetiver smoke leading into a cosy synth wood group hug.

Tokyo is another story of incense taken outside the familiar church territory we’ve all probably smelled before. It’s a full-circle exploration of humid back streets leading to a sun dappled forest bath while chasing a tail of elusive smoke.
A fragrant mash-up of the ancient and modern. Istanbul tips its hat to the big ambery perfumes of the early 20th century, but revamps them to fit into a 21st century modern lifestyle. Warm, viscous resins in a gentle whirl of lighthearted aromatics. Your jumper’s going to smell so good.
