Amber and Spice perfumes
For a more original perfume the category of the amber and spices perfumes will confer you a resolutely sensual allure. They are ideal perfumes for a particular occasion or a girls night out. A bit provocative, at Bon Parfumeur the amber perfumes have a place apart!
Do you know where the word "amber" comes from? In perfumery it does not come, as one might think, from the amber stone. This fossilized resin has absolutely no smell! Try again... The term "amber" actually refers to the warm and sweet notes extracted from the resin produced by several plants. Vanilla perfumes, for example, are highly developed amber scents. We also find benzoin and many others!
For a more pronounced character, oriental perfumes respond to warm, rich, bewitching and sometimes even sweet notes. They are created from resinous amber or smoky notes, and often present facets that are called "animal" because they evoke skin, leather... Indeed, oriental fragrances are known and appreciated for their great sensuality. The oriental olfactory family arrived late in the composition of French perfumes, but now represents an important part of the creations today.
In a completely different register the gourmand perfumes are very addictive and recall a certain magic of yesteryear, like a pastry just out of the oven. Praline, coffee, cotton candy, vanilla, caramel, candy apple, chocolate, marshmallow... You can almost taste it! Are you more of a savory person? That's not a problem, in the family of gourmet flavors, we also offer salty alternatives. In short, these are perfumes with gustatory notes, an olfactory family invented by Bon Parfumeur. Like a gourmet treat, a non-guilty pleasure that we love!
More classic, woody fragrances are also widely represented on the market. Their misogynistic history (they were long reserved for men) has finally given way to unisex notes. Widely used in perfumery, the woody notes actually "fix" the perfume in base notes. It is a technique widely used by contemporary perfumers. Woody perfumes are generally quite strong. They are made up of associations coming from various woods (sandalwood, cedar) and plants (patchouli, vetiver). It is thus possible to create opulent fragrances (with a patchouli perfume for example) or drier ones (with cedar in particular). This family is appreciated for its eternal elegance.
At Bon Parfumeur, we like to be different! This is why we have created the olfactory family of aromatic perfumes, also made from vegetable raw materials. Although simple, the aromatic fragrances bring a touch of subtlety for an absolute elegance. A blend halfway between woody and colognes perfumes, classy right?
The aromatic family includes lemony, mentholated, camphorated, aniseed and lavender notes. The olfactory alliances of the aromatic family can be thyme, star anise, chamomile, tea, tarragon, mugwort, basil, labdanum-cistus, sage, lavender, tagetes, rosemary, peppermint... So many condiments that can be used in cooking, and that work perfectly well in perfumery. Imagine eucalyptus, coriander and cypress... You have our aromatic perfume 701!
Another Bon Parfumeur creation, aquatic perfumes! The aquatic accord is very recent - appearing in the middle of the 20th century - and gives resolutely contemporary perfumes. These aquatic notes are associated with fruits, flowers, citrus fruits, herbs and woods. They are mainly used as a top note to create that vacation feeling from the very first smell! Aquatic fragrances are particularly reminiscent of summer and warm places. They will be an ideal companion to enjoy iodized scents and sea breezes all year round.
The latest Bon Parfumeur creation (to date!): special fragrances. Made from strong and intense materials, these fragrances last a long time on all skin types and are there to accompany you all day long, without ever moving! They are perfumes with tenacious notes, which we took the liberty not to categorize to honor their originality. They are unclassifiable notes such as blond tobacco, armagnac, or nutmeg. Perfect for lovers of fragrances that stand out from the crowd!
