Launched in 2018 by L.A. based natural fragrance line, DedCool, Fragrance 04 is a fragrance I’ll be wearing a lot of.
Fragrance 04 opens with a bright, bracing note of spicy, earthy black pepper. As it fades, a note of dried fig comes up. It's jammy sweetness tempers the black pepper before bergamot and lemon appear. To my nose, the citruses aren't sharp or harsh. Here, they're aromatic and bright and add elegance to Fragrance 04. They also usher in a floral heart of sweet, opulent jasmine paired with a fresh, powdery freesia. The scent of freesia is hard to replicate in scent, yet Ms. Chaz has done an excellent job of capturing it here. The base is woody from creamy, rich and aromatic sandalwood, sweet earth and balsamy, smoky patchouli. The fig and sandalwood are a classic fragrance pairing that keeps everything balanced and in place – this is key in fragrances without synthetics.
The drydown is complex, modern and chic, making Fragrance 04 an anytime/anywhere fragrance.
Notes: Black pepper, fig, bergamot, lemon, jasmine, freesia, sandalwood, patchouli and incense.
