GIVEAWAY!! and Kazaky – Last Night Video (Very Sexy)

Kazaky – Last Night Video and GIVEAWAY!!

Hey Hey to the POSSE!! Portia in the Posse from AustralianPerfumeJunkies, Recently I came across this incredible video clip for Last Night by Kazaky. It’s not a new clip but comes from 2012 and the song is so great too, thumping beats and smooth vocals, great getting ready to go out music. I find it so gorgeous and fabulously shot with amazing tricks and visuals. There are some pretty hot dancer, muscle and barely clad bodies throughout that only add to the magic. Right up to the end they keep introducing new imagery. It seemed to me like a very long fragrance commercial. So much so that I decided we needed to have some fun with it and host a giveaway!

My question to you today is:

What fragrance would this video be a perfect fit for and why?

My answer:

I have two answers unfortunately and can’t decide which would be more relevant. Ubar by Amouage is one answer because it reads like heaven and hell on my skin, hot and cool, dense and spare, everything and silence. I can imagine every participant in the clip being doused in its beauty. The other fragrance I think it would fit for is Dune by Christian Dior, another multi-layer scent that throbs and thrums on my skin with sensual yet aloof waves, a sweaty yet beautiful fragrance that hints at the underworld. Dune comes with all the might and money of the DIOR budget for advertising and a creative team that could easily have come up with this video.

  1. Hi Portia!
    Let’s perfume them with Etat Libre d’Orange Putain des Palaces! Shall we?
    Why? I don’t know, just because. This perfume came to my mind when I watched this video.

  2. Hey Portia! That was a pretty hot video. Crazy effects for sure! Hmmmm if I had to pick a fragrance to match that I think I would go out on a limb with Serge Lutens Muscs Koulbai Khan. It’s a sexy, skanky, naughty, dirty anamalistic roll in the hay. Like for reals. So that’s my pick. <3

    • FeralJasmine,
      I had hoped to be in NYC for Sniffapalooza in May and to travel to the CB HQ while there. It will have to happen another year sadly. Tell me about Musk Reinvention?

      • I have to admit that I don’t care for it, but still it reminded me of this video. It opens with a jarring oddly camphorated note on me, and the “smoke signals” that open the video remind me of that. Then, on me at least, it offers wave after wave of pure skank with a slightly rotten undertone. The waves of scent remind me of the dancers pushing the ball back and forth, with an occasional emanation of purer skank like the high-jumping dancer. It’s strong, as strong as the percussion in the video. I can see it being a beautiful scent on the right person, and would love to smell it on someone else. Regrettably, I am not the right customer for it. But this video fits it to a T!
        I too would love to go to the CBIHP gallery sometime, but who knows when that can happen. Do review this scent sometime. I’d be very interested to hear what you think.

  3. I was just wearing it from a sample I won from here (yay!) so it’s on my mind, but Musc Tonkin! Same idea as Cat and FeralJasmine, animalic and sexy!

  4. I was going to say MKK as well. The video has this dirty, sexy, skanky vibe going on, but with this beauty too, as you see the dancers pull off ballet moves in amongst all the visuals. So I like the fit of MKK with the sexy + sweaty + beautiful play of the video. If Bal a Versailles were produced today, and not connected with that baroque bottle in my head, I might say that one.

    Purely for name value, I could also go for Schocking by Sciaparelli. 😉

      • Oh Portia, I meant created today. I think if that same scent had come out in the last couple years, it wouldn’t come out with all that baroque imagery. It would come out marketed as a sexy scent, with a different bottle design.

        Actually, that’s kind of an interesting question to pose. What would be the marketing on a classic scent if created and packaged today? Would it carry the same baggage of past marketing that makes some young people turn up their nose at it in favor of Daisy, and Angel, etc. If you just take the juice, without the connotations it carries from it’s years of being on the market, what would it look like today? Especially the great scents that don’t get enough respect like BaV, or MaGriffe… or even the venerated ones that the youth look at as “old lady” but are pretty darn young and sexy, like Jicky.

        • Hey Beth,
          Interesting you should talk about Angel as a new scent. the kids today call IT old lady. I KNOW!! It’s outrageous, but true. Much of the youth think that all that hefty smell is toxic and STINKS.

  5. I wasn’t really paying attention to the music aspect of it but others mentioned Bal and MKK and I do have to agree with them. Maybe Sarrasins would be possible. Even though Joy is indolic, it maybe a little too clean.

  6. The dancers are hot indeed, but I do find the video & the music rather chilly. I guess it’s the colors and the beats. Chilly in a good way, though… So: my first thought was L’Artisan Parfumeur Cote d’Amour, which is – well – clean, harsh and chilly on me. 🙂

  7. I’d perfume them with Paco Rabanne’s La Nuit – sex in a bottle! Thanks for the drawing.

  8. I think the imagery would fit the Black XS l’exces flanker.
    Purely a match of ad copy though. Haven’t smelt it.

    Then perhaps Eden – Cacharel, if you imagine the girl and the guy as Adam and Eve marching to each other,
    again a possible visual fit.
    Also Eden has the swampy dirty feel to it, so a fair fit.

  9. I’m in the musk camp too. This video smells like Serge Lutens Clair de Musc, with all that beautiful, healthy skin showing. (I have never tried MKK, though. Must fix that.)

  10. Oh…for me, this is finally my ELDO Secretions Magnifiques inducer 😉
    Ok, ok…too obvious answer! I’ll say another: S-Perfume S-ex…
    Obvious again?
    Well. Forgive me. This video was about forbidden words 🙂

  11. For some reason, I thought of 1725 by Histoires de Parfums- it is as intense and exotic and captivating, but still somehow
    clean and a bit sterile just the way those nude bodies in the video.

  12. I first found out about Kazaky from a facebook post of their first video, Love (which I still find unsurpassed). The poster’s comment was “every girl should study them to learn how to walk on high heels properly”. No high heels in this video… I am a bit disappointed but still nice imagery.

    They have performed live for Dsquared fashion so perhaps Potion would be the easy choice. However, I think their attitude is more in line with the ELO brief. My choice would be among Vierges et Torreros, Putain des Palaces, Archives 69, Dangerous Complicity and of course Secretions Magnifiques. I think you get where I’m going with this…

    MMK and Musc Tonkin, although very close related, are only runner ups because they reflect a more classical-posh aesthetic not keeping in pace with the explicit sexuality of the video.

  13. One of my friends just recently turned me on (-ahem-) to the Kazaky videos. Most amazing to me are the stunts these boyz are able to pull of in heels. Amayzing! Thanks for the draw!

    • Yes, they sure can work the high heels. But showgirls have been doing those stunts in heels forever, and doing it on poles too. I am glad that the boys have taken up the challenge though SisterSpecies

  14. Wow…great video. I don’t know if any fragrance I have experienced would fit that…I am a Chanel girl and I cannot think of one that would fit it…maybe Anteaus? Coromandel?

    • PS-I did used to have Dune and I wore it a lot…not sure if it really fits this video, but if it really smelled as sexy as that video, I may have to buy it again…I mean, I used to wear Dune to work, and I work in a very conservative office, and no one ever commented on it.

  15. great video love the dancers. thanks for this.

  16. Dang, that is S.E.X.Y!!!!! My pick is also Serge Lutens Muscs Koulbai Khan…the animalistic, sexy, skanky, diiiiiirty musk is sex in a bottle to me! (as opposed to sex on a stick). Such a salty, sweaty skin smell that also has the multifaceted composition that relates to the kaleidoscope imagery of the video…gorgeous!!!

  17. mmmmhhh I think MKK, Noir Epices, Cuir de Russie come to mind with this video. My unhealthy and unsightly belly fat come to mind too 🙁

  18. Ignoring the name, I think Womanity’s sweaty, mineralized fig would perfume the scene androgynously well.

  19. I’m edging away from sweaty skank and moving towards “Pay. Attention. To Me. Stat.” — so my choice would be Carnal Flower because, well, it makes me think of tropical, sweltering heat and is impossible to ignore!

  20. Those balletic shots of them against the sky suggested Musk Ravageur to me. The sky is soft, the movements elegant and refined…But the pictures of them in those narrow passages made me think of Lonestar Memories, hot and smoky. So there we are – two totally different takes!

  21. Oh my! They look a bit warm and sweaty and that makes me think Rochas Femme would be perfect.

  22. I sort of get Sel de Vetiver by TDC. Granted, I’m judging based on how the perfume smells on me, and marine notes have a tendency to behave erratically in combination with my skin. On me it smells like a salty stormy sky over the deep ocean. And salty dirty skin.

    • Hiya Connie,
      Sel de Vetiver is a great scent, I love the opening rush, and you describe it perfectly. Unfortunately after that I become anosmic to it and though TSO Jin can smell it on me I am lost to it. Great choice.

  23. I love using Pretty Elizabeth Arden Eau de Parfum Spray, the scent is so cool, pleasant to smell with, fresh and this perfume is long lasting! That’s what I love about it. This is so classic and glamorous as well. 🙂

  24. It’s been said, but MKK was the first that came to mind: dirty leather, humanity, sexy sweat and musk. Secretions Magnifique also…because of that guy in kinda dirty-looking briefs jumping and rolling on the ball. heh.

    Or something kind of musky but a little less skanky, like Amouage Musk Attar or Orgie from the Mugler coffret. I am actually not kidding, I get way less skank from it than MKK. Ooh, or Aura or Virgin. That would be awesome.

    Another track: Something cumin-y but also blooming, airy, spicy and beautiful like Rochas Femme and Jubilation 25, or cedar-y or woodsy with a sort of pleasant sweaty edge and muscular strength like Tumulte Homme, Nasomatto Duro, Profumum Santalum, SL Miel de Bois.

  25. I’m still learning and there are WAY more things I haven’t smelled than things I have smelled, so I can’t name a specific fragrance, but to me, it would have to be something: dirty and dusty (not dirty sexy, dirt like dirt. That building they are in is dirty), sweaty and salty with some iron for blood (that’s what he’s swimming in, right?). There has to be the smell of lightening and fire, for the woman standing in front of the cross, and rubber for when they are on that rubber ball. And then there has to be the smell of sparks or fireworks or more dust, but colored dust. And then also, weirdly, milk or cream. And oil. Like motor oil. They are all dirtily oiled up and I can’t imagine that it smells like coconuts. Yes I know I’m being too literal. I’m an accountant by trade, I can’t help it. It doesn’t really sound like something I would want to douse myself in, but who knows. So yeah – sparky, dusty, bloody, salty. Does that exist? Would anyone buy it?

    • You probably need to get yourself a sample of Secretions Magnifique and layer it with Afteliers Sepia. That would give you a great approximation.

  26. I’m going to be contrary and not suggest something musky or dirty. To me the video is sexy and also beautiful in a perfected and chilly almost cold way. Thus my choice-Iris Silver Mist (runner up Tuberose Criminelle)!

    • Excellent!! I am loving how many great directions we have been taken on this journey today. thanks,
      Portia xx

  27. Hey All,
    I’m too late for the giveaway, but just found the video and liked it VERY much, especially the dirty/muddy shots and the salt (or is it sand?) ones. Really spectacular and artistic. Thank You for pointing this out for me, I’m gonnatry and find some more stuff from them now.

    I am surprised though, that nobody mentioned Kingdom (or did I just miss it). Aren’t those beautiful female forms reeking from it even through the monitor? 🙂 I think they do. (I love Kingdom, don’t get me wrong).
    And Dior’s Leather Oud for the guys. They are *THAT* hot.
    I just wanted to thank You Portia, it was a totally new experience. And so good.
