THE ART OF LAYERING

L'Artisan Parfumeur invites you to explore the art of layering.

THE ORIGINS OF LAYERING

L'Artisan Parfumeur invites you to explore the art of layering. Since the beginning of time, women in the Middle East have been known to combine different fragrance oils to create their own unique fragrances. This ritual has seven steps that perfume the skin, hair and clothes with different textures such as oils and smokes.

In addition to these different steps, the perfume is sprayed again three or four times during the day. A ritual that dresses them in a mysterious trail, an expression of their identity.

HOW TO LAYER FRAGRANCES

Layering has since then gained favour in western countries, in the search for personal personalised fragrances. A daring art, which frees itself from codes unleashing its desires.

The fragrances of the L'Orient collection can be used in this way offering endless possibilities, from the most musky, to the most woody, amber or spicy notes. L'Artisan Parfumeur offers you the opportunity to combine the L'Orient collection with some of its iconic scents available in 100 ml bottle, 10 ml travel size or Shower Gel and Body Lotion.

    The perfumer wanted to create an almost mystical emotion of what he nicely calls a "woody nectar" built around a creamy cedar with warm and gourmet accents of saffron and muscade nuts. The presence of the enchanting resins of ciste and labdanum evokes the warm earth of the Orient. This innovative combination of cedar and fiery spices dyes this perfume with an aura of mystery and makes the journey madly enigmatic. 

    "This fragrance is a woody nectar built around a creamy cedar with saffron accents”. Christophe Raynaud. 

    Each L’Orient fragrance comes with its matching sample in order to try the scent on your skin before opening the 100ml bottle, and be able to send back the fragrance if it doesn’t suit you.

    You have to imagine a "flower milk" that has been brought to life in the perfumer's mind. It is a material, a texture as much as a smell. Its incarnation is the sun-radiated heliotrope flower with its unctuous and creamy fragrance. The nutmeg, with its warm, peppery scent, makes it irresistibly addictive. The last piece of the puzzle, ensuring the fragrance blends with the skin, is the magical vibration of amber and the cottony comfort of musk, which close the accord on a sensual and comforting note. 

    "This is an oriental fragrance that celebrates amber and the most beautiful and precious resins of frankincense and myrrh, wrapped in white iris petals and the comfort of overdosed musks. " Christophe Raynaud

    There can be no clearer or more encompassing depiction of the perfumer’s creative obsession, crystallised around one idea: wood, wood and more wood! It was incredibly bold to create this woody bouquet, skilfully composed, blending patchouli, vetiver, sandalwood, oud and cedar in a bed of unctuous vanilla that beautifully coats this wood "forest" to nourish and then tenderise it.

    The perfumer had long dreamed of a fruit liquor with floral accents, as sweet as a flow of honey down the throat, with the effect almost of a mysterious potion. He made it the beating heart of the perfume, the soul, the very essence of his creation. Even in the base, the perfumer has favoured simplicity: a leathery-animal note suggested by oud wood, resonating perfectly with saffron and vanilla bean. A signature fragrance with the necessary roundness and comfort. 

    "This fragrance reflects the delicious opulence of vanilla, coloured with spices and adorned with vibrant woods. " Christophe Raynaud

    Couleur Vanille is a fragrance conjured from a fantasy, a departure in the mind’s eye. Perfumer Aliénor Massenet was leafing through an atlas when she suddenly visualised sailing off the fabled island of Madagascar. Trade winds swelled with sensual hints of the land’s astonishing bounty. The heat of the sun amplified the vision and each subtle aroma started to take shape.

    "I could smell the aroma of a vanilla pod, subtly bathed in bergamot, everlasting, benzoin and tolu balm, and gently caressed by a salty sea breeze with a dash of iodine. The whole story was there for the taking…”

    Perfume is an invitation to a dream, a poem of possibilities. For the master perfumer, exquisite raw botanicals not only suggest the place where they are grown, but also the feelings evoked, and the powerful pull of memory. Particularly, the longing for a place when you are far away.

    Couleur Vanille. Where will it take you?

Légendes du Cèdre Eau de Parfum and Mûre et Musc Eau de Toilette

The marriage of these two signatures creates a fragrance with a strong and assertive character. The aromatic opening of Mûre et Musc perfectly balances the creamy warmth of cedar.

    Mûre et Musc is the iconic débutante of L’Artisan Parfumeur’s first collection and is noteworthy for its innovation and ultimately for its classicism. A memory of fizzy fresh berries, long green grass and the little white apron all set for blackberry picking on a sunny day. The irreverent contrast of warm white musk against zesty blackberries is what sets not only this fragrance but this niche perfume house apart, as a true pioneer in perfumery.

    La Chasse aux Papillons is a childhood memory inspired by chasing butterflies and playing under summer skies. It is a carefree time. Long, sunny days and meadows full of flowers in bloom. Imagine lying under the shade of citrus trees and looking up towards the sky. Wispy white clouds and butterflies float above. The gauze of butterfly wings and fine nets echo the delicate nature of this fragrance. The result is soft, luminous and sheer.
