Each NOSE Perfumes fragrance is a mini-story about Russia. Or, as Timur Soldatov, perfumer and founder of the brand, says, “the cultural code of the country”. For example, Have A Nice Day is associated with the smell of pine needles at the edge of the forest; Awake – from the morning in the forest when picking berries; Meadow Tea – with linden tea, which you drink in a wooden house away from city life; Day Off – with a bouquet of flowers in a sunlit room; Morning Rowing – cruising along the river on a cool day; Lumberman – from a shoe shop, where things are created in a single copy.

Magma Perfumes belongs to Yana Andreeva, and she also maintains the brand’s Instagram – she tells life hacks about her perfumes and shows the process of their creation. Yana’s main concept is to create exclusive fragrances in limited quantities. Another trick is the 2 ml samples (700 rubles), which can be tested to see if the fragrance is right for you. Now there are seven perfumes in the line. The bestseller is #Nude, which the site describes as a natural scent of a clean body. It contains notes of rose, magnolia, lily of the valley, violet, sea water, milk, sandalwood, musk and ambergris.

At Wood Moss, all fragrances contain woody notes, which the founder of the brand, Karina Velichkovskaya, associates with her native land in Siberia, and can evoke other positive memories for her clients. And the main thing is that each perfume is not like another. Wood Moss of the same name with vetiver and sandalwood oil, for example, seems deep and strong, reminiscent of the smell of earth and bark. And Faun with cedar and moss is lighter, fresher, transfers to morning forests in northern Canada. At the same time, Himera with patchouli and vanilla can sound differently: sometimes after it you can hear woody tobacco accords on the skin, and sometimes – floral-earthy notes.
