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. It starts with a scented bath, using shower gels, soaps or shower oils, followed by a scented oil applied on to damp hair and skin for better absorption of the scent. Once the skin is dry, a scented body lotion is used to soften and smooth the skin, and an Eau de Parfum spayed all over the body. A perfume concentrate is then applied to all pulse points where skin is warmest, wrists, neck, giving maximum diffusion of the scent. Finally, shavings of oud wood are burnt, bokhour, in order to impregnate hair and clothes with the smoke. 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. However, it is advisable to spray the most intense fragrance first, enabling the lighter scents to express themselves. Contrary to popular belief, opposites attract and transcend each other through the play of contrasts. The perfect opportunity to create your own olfactory signature, the one that suits you.

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.

    Notes

    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.

    Notes

    In a simple and clear writing, the perfumer wanted to capture the green and spicy scent of a Damask Rose treated in majesty, just infused with sumptuous notes of incense and patchouli. He succeeds in putting in tension the freshness of this Turkish rose and the addictive warmth of the pepper and ciste trio. This fragrance, entirely structured around the favourite flower of the Orientals, deploys its aura of mystery on the skin. 

    "This fragrance features three vibrant peppers - white, pink and black - to enhance the iconic rose du levant, majestic in each of its facets, on a mysterious and bewitching patchouli base.” Christophe Raynaud

Ode à l'Oudh Eau de Parfum and Histoire d'Orangers Body Lotion

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. The sweetness of the blackberry underlines the spicy notes of saffron and nutmeg while retaining the deliciously ambery base, that is particularly appreciated in the Middle East, of Légendes du Cèdre.

    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.  

    "This fragrance embodies the richness and generosity of woods by combining Cypriol, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Gorjum, Cedar and Gaiac with the smoothness of Vanilla. " Christophe Raynaud
