The fragrance families
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 an evening between girlfriends. 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! Yes, if you can still try... 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 arrives late in the compositions of the French perfumes but represents today a very important part of the creations.
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... It's almost time to taste! Are you more of a salty snack? It's a good thing, in the family of gourmet flavors we also find savory gourmet alternatives. In short, they are perfumes with gustatory notes, an olfactory family invented by Bon Parfumeur. Like a greediness, a not 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 sober, 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 sensations! 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 marry their originality. They are unclassifiable notes such as blond tobacco, armagnac, or nutmeg. Perfect for lovers of fragrances that stand out from the crowd!
