Fragrance Of The Month: OBAKKI No. 13 Seme EDP

This month? We try out OBAKKI No. 13 Seme EDP…

You roll with a lot. Your remote work schedule, hockey night carpool, having beef stroganoff for dinner three nights in a row… So it makes perfect sense that your next fragrance be OBAKKI No. 13 Seme’s roll-on eau de parfum.

Earthy and bright, this scent wafts clear and fresh citrus notes of grapefruit with tart bergamot on first swipe. Smoky palo santo with warm amber soon move forward enveloping you in a rich and robust sense of bottled energy before being smoothed into grounded notes of spicy patchouli, creamy cedarwood and sharp vetiver. The overall effect is woody and engaging with intimate undertones.

Mix-mastered by hand in a Brooklyn atelier, No. 13 Seme is one part old-world perfumery and another part future unity courtesy of the New York brand’s commitment to environmental ethics and transparency along with their reinvestment into artisan communities. It’s also crafted as gender-free and without a hint of phthalates, parabens or silicones. Then there’s the roll-on flacon with its twist on cap, making this unique blend as easy to apply as it is to enjoy. So take it with you everywhere.

OBAKKI No. 13 Seme EDP, $69 for 10 ml, available online at www.obakki.com and at Holt Renfrew stores.
