100 Tweeds from Euphorium Brooklyn

by: Jodi Battershell

Has the crisp autumn breeze had you reaching for your beloved tweed jacket? The nubby, woolen fabric has a distinct texture and aroma perfectly suited for the chilly mornings and evenings of October in the Northern Hemisphere, when a sweater isn't quite enough but a parka is too much. A good tweed jacket lends a distinguished air to any outfit, without being overly formal, while its wool offers just the right amount of breathable warmth and comfort.
How would a tincture of 100 tweeds smell? This question inspired fanciful perfume house Euphorium Brooklyn to compose an answer in the form of 100 Tweeds, its newest fragrance release. 

Euphorium Brooklyn explains the inspriation behind the scent: "100 Tweeds was intended in part to evoke bucolic memories of perfumer, Christian Rosenkreuz' Bavarian study. With windows open to receive fresh heather and bitter herbs from the verdant splendour that is the end of summer, the aroma of his musty volumes of yellowed parchment and rich sweet tobacco notes from the humidor brought that time to life for Rosenkruez. Transported by the fragrance, Rosenkreuz could visit his study when the nights had become crisp and he would seek the warmth and comfort of his favorite tweed, settle into his over-sized wing chair that smelled of ancient woods and peat, and lose himself to the scent of paper, ink and vellum that lifted from the book on his lap by the crackling hearth."

The brand shares a little more about Christian Rosenkreuz:
"Christian Rosenkreuz would always remember leaning down that morning to button her top button, the one he had made from the antler of a buck he himself had stalked. He had caught the dry, herbaceous scent of his daughter’s alpine tweed and the green felt collar of her jacket. A breeze brought the smell of her freshly washed hair mixed with fragrant heather from the meadow outside across to him and he inhaled deeply."
("Christian Rosenkreuz" is a fictional alter ego of the artist and perfumer behind Euphorium Brooklyn, Stephen Dirkes. A complete backstory of Christian Rosenkreuz can be found on the Euphorium Brooklyn website.)
