There is a perfume library located in the middle of Saigon, where people need to make an appointment to be welcomed, and also need to prepare the time and mood to chat with the owner of this space – a who simply embraces love the intense scent.
Eric Tran’s library is not too large, but the careful arrangement of space and the system of products is very delicate, reflecting his meticulousness and care. Stepping into the room, one can immediately notice that this is not a quick construction work, but on the contrary, every corner of the shelf, the right temperature and light are all carefully arranged.
Perfume library for scent lovers
“Apart from love, scent is the most memorable, so I don’t like losing either one.”
Not only that, he will personally talk to each guest who visits his perfume library space, leading them gradually into the world of scents and imaginations, of memories and profound ideas. Eric said he was lucky because he grew up in the countryside as a child, which was itself a rich and pure scent library.
“NICHE Perfume Enthusiasts,
According to me, they are ALL VERY SENSITIVE AND EMOTIONAL”
Not stopping at personal preferences, Eric decided to create a place to work every day and share his scent feelings with those who love the niche perfume library – as he describes, first and foremost. will be for those who are rich in terms of conditions, rich in both thinking and artistic appreciation. A perfume bottle when created, in addition to containing the master technique of distillation, packed with layers of scents of professional perfumers (perfumer), is also a concept that they want to convey, or an opening thread of the conversation they want the user to continue. For that reason, niche perfumers and enthusiasts are always very interested in the comments of leading perfume experts to find ways to improve the sensitivity of the sense of smell, and most importantly, the self. consciously expanding their life experience so that the association and perception of scents become clearer and more thorough. This game is clearly not for superficial players and eager to take shortcuts.
The first perfume Eric owned was the classic Annick Goutal, and this classic scent can be seen as the first encouragement to his hobby. In the scent journey, Eric has been surprised many times by the creativity of perfumers and the sensitivity of the audience. Imagination and visualization are at the core of perfume analysis and selection. Eric also admits, we can “read” a person through the scent they love and use for themselves.
“Every scent for me
IS A JOURNEY”
Mendittorosa, one of the most respected perfumers today, 30 – 45 days is the time you need to wait to get a satisfactory scent.
The most difficult perfume to buy and remember Eric the most is An’l by Mendittorosa, made specifically for Vietnam, for ViinRiic and it took a long time to convince this perfumer to cooperate. Took over a year, it’s still in production. The perfume bottle is very rare and precious in both the love and the turmeric in the scent, a creation that Eric said will only be available to believers.
The fragrance collection at Eric’s perfume library is his way of describing a multifaceted world rich in cultural connections, in sync with creativity. The scent lovers of Saigon and Hanoi come to him not only to hunt for unique and rare perfume bottles, but also to chat on an unlimited journey, to find a stirring scent, penetrating the heart.
Starting to focus on collecting niche perfumes 10 years ago, Eric Tran has built a perfume library and connected with the very selective niche perfumer community in Vietnam.
