Bon Parfumeur Eau de parfum 201: green apple, lily-of-the-valley and quince 30ml
Can you feel that lust for life from the first sprays? The bright and crisp fruits in the top notes titillate the floral touches of bergamot for real invigoration. With green apple and blackcurrant leaf, the fragrance begins with a fresh botanical dimension, conjuring up an imaginary garden. The heart presents a magnificent bouquet of magnolia, freesia, marigold and lily of the valley, which lend the creation harmony with their soft and elegant floral notes. The woody intensity of cedar and vetiver is mingled with musks to extend the wear of this ethereal fragrance.
Have you ever seen a marigold?
A beautiful name for a very pretty flower that grows on the arid plains of South America. This particular variety is also called the French marigold. It resembles other more familiar kinds of marigold, with beautiful warm colors and velvety-soft petals. In pre-Colombian civilizations, this flower was used to honor the dead. This ingredient smells very delicate and subtle. Its green and fruity floral aromas will definitely remind you of green apple or chamomile. It has only been used in perfumery for a few years.
Don’t we all love vetiver?
While we can’t say that vetiver is THE finest ingredient in perfumery as there are so many others, it is definitely one of our favorites and we’re sure you’ll agree! In perfumery, its roots are used rather than its long stems. The essential oil is therefore extracted from the rhizomes by distillation. Have you ever had the opportunity to smell essences from different regions? Vetiver is actually grown in Réunion, India, China, Haiti and Java. Incredibly, the essences from Réunion and Java smell very different from one another! The characteristics of the surrounding land directly influence their facets. A Javanese vetiver is smokier and greener, while Haitian vetiver has overtones of grapefruit, making it more bitter. The Réunion kind is the rarest; its notes are crystalclear and characteristic of vetiver: fresh, slightly spicy, woody and earthy. It is a distinguished base note that completes a creation.
