New Luxury Fragrances Launch in Hudson, NY

For those who have never been to Hudson, NY you must not have been listening to the chatter or reading the Times' travel editorials.

Hudson is the upstate destination for Manhattanites, Brooklynites and North-Easterners, in general. Last month the first "adage" retail store opened, in conjunction with the launch of the brand's line of ambient fragrances, in the 300 block of mile-long Warren Street, historic Hudson's main commercial street. Hudson is famous for its antique dealers and curated home decor shops. The fitting setting for home scents with a captive audience of metropolitan weekenders and locals alike.

The newly renovated building can't be missed with its "nearly black" Greek Revival facade and masculine, gray walled interior with an eclectic mix of furniture from the late 1800's to mid-century modern. Striking black and white landscape photography and low lighting come together to create an atmospheric backdrop to the reed diffuser and candle "adage" vessels made from hand-pressed black glass. 

Each fragrance gets its own station to experience a more isolated testing of the distinct fragrances. The themed vignettes, referential to the great American landscapes that inspired the fragrances, serve as a mood board to illustrate how each fragrance was originally conceived by creators/owners Christopher Draghi and Robert Dobay. The entry room of the store showcases the seasonal featured fragrance, furnished with objects and photographs that recall that region's character.

The men's lounge style space permeates a rich mixture of all the open fragrances oils and lit candles that greet you warmly at the door upon entry and linger on to the sidewalk as an open invitation to those passing who have yet to visit. 

 

Complimentary Contrasts of the SOUTHWEST

The landscapes shift drastically as you travel from the gentile sonoran fields of greater Phoenix to the red rock towers of majestic Sedona. Yellow and amber hues of dried earth are what you expect in this region of the U.S. and the foothills of Phoenix in early morning and late afternoon, as the sun sets, do not disappoint expectations. It is when you go north and breach the hills that separate these two, not distant, areas that they distinguish themselves though.

Once Sedona's infamous red rock landscape comes in to view, the only response is awe. It is perhaps one of the most photographed landscapes, yet the images do not do justice to its overwhemingly majestic presence. Deep green sagebrush and pines anchor the low-lying areas and creates the visual contrast to the powdery red earth floor and the chiseled red monuments that tower above.

You can't help but pick up the scent of arid, kilned earth — you can taste it — with the peppery and aromatic qualities of the underbrush and dried wood. At every bend of the trails that lead towards the peaks you are met with a wave of distinct fragrances whose character is unmistakably SOUTHWEST.
