Perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer for Gardénia Pétale
“I chose to use this heady flower in a very airy way, like a flower that scents the air. This fragrance is an interpretation of every moment in the life of this flower; it is budding with fresh citrus and green notes, its blossoming is enhanced with floral touches (jasmine, lily of the valley), and finishes on a musky structure to prolong the life of this marvelous flower: the gardenia.”
Perfumer Antoine Maisondieu for Muguet Blanc
“The touching, graceful delicacy of lily of the valley is embellished with white peony, the radiant touch of neroli, and the elegant caress of white cedar softened with satiny musk. Inspired by the brand’s naturalist poetry, I wanted to finely chisel lily of the valley in a very sophisticated setting.”
Perfumer Randa Hammami for Orchidée Vanille
“This fragrance unveils a fresh, sensual interpretation evoking a heady, unique oriental voyage. A mysterious flower of legendary beauty, I wanted to translate all the facets of the orchid. Following the fresh and fruity opening provided by Mandarin and Litchi, I wanted to surround the middle note with floral and sensual accords (violet, Bulgarian rose). The bottom note of Virginia Cedar Wood is enveloped in Vanilla Absolute and adorned with balsamic and musky flourishes."
Perfumer Emilie Coppermann for Bois d'Iris
“To smell wood, to see its scent from a totally different angle, forget the idea of the forest, leaves, and earth, and picture it on a beach, floating in waves, and washing up on the sand. Driftwood warmed by the sun. I paired it with Ambergris and Labdanum to underscore the solar and sensual dimension of this wood. Iris and Vetiver bring out the texture and elegance of this fragrance.”
Perfumer Mark Buxton for Cologne Noire
“A contemporary, surprising, new take on Eau de Cologne. My aim was to revisit the Cologne theme. Fresh spices such as Ginger and Cardamom are mixed with the classic citrus notes to give the fragrance a different kind of brightness. The sweet bottom note evolves into warm woody facets to emphasize the persistent freshness of this new Cologne.”
Perfumer Nathalie Cetto for Lys Carmin
“Enhanced by a bright burst of spices, the fleshy lily is allied with a powdery ylang ylang to work its most sensual magic. The fusion of vanilla and sandalwood complete the bewitchment and bring the voluptuous intensity to a new height. I wanted to update the lily by refining it and illustrating the sensuality of the flower with spices, woody notes, and a creamy vanilla.”
Perfumer Amandine Marie for Precious Oud
"I wanted to express the delicate and refined scent of the Oud while maintaining its strong yet utterly enticing nature."
