Hard to be at almost 40 i am getting better at it. I would like the discovery set. I have inly tried Mandala but it is a wonderful scent and i would like to try more. Thanks for the draw. First time I hear from this house. Id love to win the discovery set. Miami Florida Thanks. Ida never fails to dellight.
I would like to think that I embrace my flaws however remembering that most, not all, flaws can be improved upon with time and effort. I would love the Discovery Set. Thank you for a marvelous review, beautiful photography, and a generous draw. I'm in the USA.
I'm intrigued by everything from the art direction to the ingredients to the very artform represented here that I'd not known about at all. Love that this sounds like an earthy new-chypre rather than a super clean one. Florals, umami, herbs, sounds wonderful! I also love that it is unique but wearable. I'd love to sample this one scent. I embrace my flaws by eating all the questionable innovations I cook! Thanks for the draw I'm in the US. I am compelled to comment because of Ida's remark that it is sure to be among the finest she will smell in !
This as well "This is a beauty with brains to match and plenty of soul, a perfume which will satisfy and intrigue the wearer and entourage. I lovingly embrace my past, current, and future flaws knowing that I will gain much more by embracing and accepting them than fighting them.
They are apart of each days growth for me. Tomorrow I will improve on today's flaws, most assuredly. I am in the US. Red algae from Japan? I'm very interested. Thanks for the opportunity. I'm still a work in progress, lol. If lucky, the discovery set, please. I try to apply mindfulness when working with my flaws. Sometimes you need to see it in a neutral manner in order not to react to your flaws. Based in Canada. I am already familiar with Times Square and Mandala from Masque Milano, so I was especially pleased to hear about this new release.
A red-algae chypre perfume inspired by a porcelain bowl repaired with gold seems innovative and intriguing. I try to embrace my flaws first by becoming aware of them. Some may be worth showcasing because they speak for my uniqueness, while others may provide a moment to learn and grow.
I would appreciate the 5 ml sample of Kintsugi and I am in the US. Wabi-Sabi always had a great appeal to me, and so does this perfume! The review was very personal, which I liked, since I am in my mid 40s and also start to notice all those cracks appearing in my physical body, while I try to fill the old cracks of the psyche with the gold of experience and thought.
Still, since i know not a single scent of Masque Milano, i would choose the discovery kit. Living in Germany, EU. Such a lovely thought — finding beauty in imperfection. As we age we acquire our own cracks and scars, and can either embrace them or hide them. I embrace mine. Thank you for a wonderful review. Another incredible fragrance and something to think about. I live in Australia. As a flawed human being myself, I dear perfumes with the purpose to mend the cracks in my soul. A golden liquid which restores the missing pieces of broken words, of missed embraces, embellishes one's memories and ultimately makes one whole again, or, at least, a better self.
I didn't know about this way of fixing broken pottery, and I was curious about the way it is going to be translated into a perfume, plus I admire Ida and Ermano's multiple skills and wearing other fragrances from Masque Milano, I have a feeling that this new "fixed" chypre will be just my cup of tea. Fingers crossed. I liked how you described the perfume materials used for this fragrance. It gave a very realistic impression how it smells even though red algae still makes me very curious.
I love masque Milano perfumes. My favorite is Tango. Would love to smell this novelty. I am in Germany. What i liked about this review was the insight on the concept of a modern chypre. Also, the asian theatre influenced images were very evocative. From Romania. I'm more crack than pot at this point. I've been impressed by the quality of materials used by this house in the fragrances I own of theirs, Tango and Russian Tea.
The combination of notes sounds fascinating. I'm in US, discovery set sounds amazing. The note list of Kintsugi reads uniqueness and Ida's endorsement of this being one of the finest fragrances she'll smell in has me interested. I would welcome a discovery kit. This sounds gorgeous! I have yet to try anything from masque milano but Russian tea and tango have been on my must sample list for awhile.
Kintsugi sounds like an amazing addition to the house the notes sound amazing and it is based off an beautiful tradition. I remember studying kintsugi in my art class back in high school and just being wowed by the simplicity and beauty that comes from it and the whole idea of wabi sabi just resonated with me. Thanks for the amazing review. I would love to try the discovery set I have heard so many great things about this house and I need to try them!
As someone who lived in Japan for many years, I am always interested in how perfumers express elements of Japanese culture. I love how the perfumers here have used magnolia, amber, and raspberry leaf to suggest porcelain and salt shining in the light. I remember how some restaurants used to dispaly a small mound of salt outside their entrance for luck I believe, or to suggest cleanliness.
The nightlight indeed sometimes shines upon those salt offerings. I don't really embrace all my my flaws. For example, now that I am of a certain age, I don't wear shorts when I am out and about in the city. But I did learn to accept my grey hair and no longer bother to dye it. This new perfume has very interesting pyramid. And after Ida's beautiful discretion I am intrigued very much. If this perfume has overdose of patchouli, I love it. An interesting concept, a matrix that adheres our broken pieces together, even perhaps into a more beautiful vessel than before.
I think that embracing of one's flaws comes most easily with age, over time we realize that none among us are perfect and it becomes easier to accept our own shortcomings. I live in the US and would love to win the discovery set. Thank you to Masque Milano for this generous draw! I have always found this process of KIntsugi…. I like the description of salt and gold, and the whole idea of utilizing red algae.
These perfumers are finding their inspiration in the most intereting places! Thanks for the review. If I won I would choose the sampler. From what I read, this should be an amazing, unique fragrance that I would love to try. In fact, I would love to try the whole line, so my choice would be the discovery set. I reside in Canada. Thank you very much for this opportunity. The whole description of this fragrance is what appealed to me it sounds very interesting and lovely.
I embrace my flaws by practicing positive thinking everyday always. I have not had a opportunity to try anything from this house so I would love the discovery set. I have loved the word wabi sabi for a while and therefore really appreciated this review and reference to it. I have been interested in this brand for quite some time so I would love to experience the discovery set. I embrace my flaws with pure acceptance. I am in the USA. The review of Kintsufgi's so apt: a cerebral, reflective meditation on what sounds like an extremely intelligent and considered fragrance.
The few Masque Milano scents I've tried so far have all been stunning, so I would love to try the discovery set and explore their full range. I love Japanese approach to things, even it is imposible to manifest in Western world, based on consumerism and competitiveness.
This fragrance sounds like a protective meditation that holds you in a unvisible silk and gold cocon. The notes are intriguing — algue and patchouli overdose, wow. Embracing my own flaws are not easy, but getting easier with age. My favorites from Masque Milano seem to be, as I remember, Tango and Russian Tea, but I haven't tested properly none of them, so the discovery set would be my choice in case of win.
Thank you, I live in the EU. I enjoyed reading what kintsugi is. The photos are lovely. I've seen porcelian like this, but the story behind it is fascinating! Ida's excitment over this fragrance is contagious!
The notes sound refreshing and some are unknown to me which makes me even more curious. Embracing my own flaws…a good question. I think I try to remember that my flaws don't reflect who I am and that they bring humbleness which is a good thing in my opinion. I've only experienced Hemingway, so I would like to try the discovery set. Thanks for the chance to win. In the USA. I love patchouli and the approach to fractured and cracked in this article. I am with you, Ida, sister! As for how I embrace my own flaws: I have a large Italian nose that I used to be ashamed of.
Now I know it is a "nose" and that it allows me to smell fragrance notes and taste ingredients, to discern, as others cannot. I am learning also how to accept being alone and that I am never alone in a room full of books and perfume that transport me to places, times and people. I'm in USA. Seems like Ida really enjoys this one.
Would like to try the Discovery Set. Thanks for the giveaway, U. I can understand all the cited associations to some extent, apart from bad breath, but I do not share them. The potato and the painting department are the ones I can do best, because I find a tart, dusty, vegetable, earthy and moist scent at the heart of the fragrance, the Patchouli-Ceur. But despite the omnipresence of this patchouli coeur, the accompanying notes so typical of Chypres, such as bergamot and rose, are quite recognizable.
Magnolia contributes a subtle white-flowered chord, 'Ambrinol' in turn the leathery and animalistic facets of 'Ambregris'. A hint of unsweet vanilla gives the fragrance a certain roundness without pushing it too much in an oriental direction, and violet and raspberry leaf provide a little green freshness. The putty that holds all these notes together - to get back to the art form 'Kintsugi' - is said 'patchouli coeur'. The creators of the fragrance wanted it to mutate into gold varnish and to decoratively cover the individual notes, similar to cracked ceramics.
Was this project a success? Is the entire inspiration implemented in a comprehensible way? I mean, yes, very well Purists will object naggingly that 'Kintsugi' is not chypre at all, as there is no oak moss far and wide. Yeah, you're right. The cathedral of Florence was also accused of not being a real cathedral at all, as it was not finished in the Gothic style, but in the new forms of the Renaissance.
There are times when things change fundamentally, and in terms of chypre fragrance, the changing of the guard of the oak moss by patchouli seems to be the beginning of such a time. Sure, the new, modern chypres smell a little different, especially in the rear, the patchouli leaves a slightly different basic tone. But everything that makes a chypre, the typical bitter bitterness, the mineral-salty dampness reminiscent of ink, the earthy-woody undertones - it's all there!
It should also be mentioned that 'Kintsugi' can be worn by all sexes. Men may find the fragrance too feminine because of its floral components, women may find it too masculine because of its dark-bitter hue - but wasn't that already the case with 'Mitsouko'?
Pour fruit syrup into your puppy's cushion, brush the cigarette ash a few times and place a rose and a wet magnolia on top of it. Then it will probably smell like Kintsugi. It is based on an old chypre and has a particularly rough green patchuli.
But the scent of flowers just picked up from the water swirls all over my body. It's not just petals. It has whole fresh stems and green leaves in it. I detect slightly different notes every time I put this on. The first day I couldn't find the violets, and the second day there were some violets, but the bergamots disappeared.
But the full fragrance of the bouquets of flowers was always strong, and when I groped the leaves and stems, the puppy cushion came out at the end always. The cushion on which my puppy digs up the dirt in the garden and comes back home and lies down. Anyway, Kintsugi is too feminine for me to wear.
But women may find it too masculine. Projection and duration are really beasts. Eryina 1 year ago. Pie Chart Radar Chart. Photos by the Community. Popular Masque. Top Notes.

|Masque milano kintsugi||It makes more sense to attempt to embrace what exists in its fractured, reconfigured state. Of course the description of the notes appeals to me but the description of the art of Kintsugi is so emotive but positive. I'd love to try it in the Discovery Set. Thanks for the draw. I've finally be come more comfortable with my flaws…. This new perfume has very interesting pyramid.|
|Disposable tableware||There are plenty more from this house I haven't yet tried, though, so I would love the discovery kit. I would appreciate the 5 ml sample of Kintsugi and I am in the US. If this perfume has overdose of patchouli, I love it. Thus, the mission 'Resurrection of a Believed Dead' finds its glorious, hopefully only temporary end with 'Kintsugi' and all chypre enthusiasts should actually be cheering with joy.

Kintsugi by Masque Milano is a fragrance for women and men. Kintsugi was launched in The nose behind this fragrance is Vanina Muracciole. A modern, bright chypre. Spring has finally arrived. The fresh air conveys energy and arouses mankind from winter lethargy. Under the magnolia tree. Fantastic composition, the rose stands out enough to make it a bit too feminine for me. Would definitely appreciate it on a woman. Looking forward to trying.
