As the seventies turned to the eighties, the nightlife at Bains Douches turned from the glitzy excess of disco to a new sound that was both melodic and modern, but also rawer and more emotionally intense than what had come before. As an ode to this New Romanticism and its dark and cheerful contradictions, 1979 New Wave is a truly intriguing combination of exceptionally bright, aldehydic herbaceous notes contrasted against a rich base of gorgeous, woodsy orris. The cool, bracing freshness of a mint bouquet explodes off the skin, the aldehydes providing a modern, gently soapy sparkle, which lifts up the (dare we say gloomy?) sensuality of the buttery orris heart, which otherwise might sink under its own complex richness. The smoothly musky base supports both the lighter and darker aspects of the scent, as crisp, aromatic cedarwood keeps the energy up while creamy sandalwood and warm amber coax warmer aspects from the orris. Looking for a new, sexy take on iris/orris? 1979 New Wave is here to transport you.
