Hi there Posse! I’m wearing something new. It came as a GWP with the latest First In Fragrance order and I love it. UR±SILK 19 is its name and I have zero idea of how they want me to say it, nor how to say the crews name.
UR±SILK 19 by UÈRMÌ
First In Fragrance gives these featured accords:
Iris, fig, bergamot, white tea, cardamom, jasmine, vetiver, white musky, cedar
I smell almost nothing from the notes list but this stuff is really lovely. It it obviously 21st century niche but different to anything else I’ve smelled.
UR±SILK 19 takes a while to finish its opening niche woodsy thing and once that calms down a coconutty fig emerges which makes my nose think the wood is sandalwood. I can’t smell any of the citrus at all but there is a background greenness and hints of a wet cardboard leaning iris. While being nothing alike I get faint reminiscences of the way A Quiet Morning by Miller et Bertaux feels. There’s something about way the composition tells its story that is similar.
Now that I’ve looked at the note list I can pick out the tea, it’s gentle but present.
All this excitement is underscored by some standard issue niche base. I’m not complaining, it works very well for me.
I tried UR±SILK 19 the other night with my mate TinaG and thought it smelled very me then. Today I have worn it from morning to night. It has had three respritzes in about 13 hours, one about an hour ago to write this review. I’m thinking to buy the FB on my next FiF order. That’s how much I’m enjoying it.
What new stuff have you been smelling?
