Paris, France — Naf Naf, one of those fun ready-to-wear French clothing brands was always on the cutting edge of innovation. Founded in France by the Parienti brothers in 1973, the legendary house was one of the first to bring out a line of accessories and bathing suits, its own magazine available in its stores and a perfume in 1992. Today the house is owned by the group Sy Corporate France and it has recently launched a new range of fun, flowery and fruity perfumes reminiscent of the 1970s, a decade that we here at The Gourmet Gazette have very fond memories of.

The elegant Crazy Drop is a burst of red fruits and flowers all with a pink note: the Burlap cherry, the May rose (the rose of Provence) pink grapefruit all underscored by jasmin, santal and musk. The fruity Magnetic Kiss is a heady blend of pepper, orange flower, jasmin, iris cinnamon from Madagascar, patchouli and more, much more. Magic Fizz is a classic perfectly unisex Eau de Cologne with the elegance of Earl Gray tea, bergamote, mint, verveine and a touch of neroli. Hello Paradise is a fine bouquet of white flowers including the ever popular in the seventies ylang ylang, jasmin, white cedar and mango. And the tiare flower offers a lush and plush touch. But our clear favorite was the Spicy Rose, a very floral scent of Bulgarian rose, patchouli, raspberry and musk. The line of fragrances was launched by the house of Naf Naf’s muse, Maëva Coucke, Miss France 2018. The bottles are decorated with matt gold pad printing and the line was created over a ten month period by Drim Tim (tr) which worked with three master perfumers.
