Eau de parfum 401 : An addictive plum

 


The fragrance opens on a sublime freshness lent by notes of cypress, elemi and bergamot. The star of the show, an utterly addictive plum, takes center stage with its sweet spellbinding aromas of candied fruits. The base notes, set alight by cinnamon leaf and the vibrant woody notes of cedar, turn up the intensity and reveal velvety musky facets. Vanilla and labdanum add body and sensuality to complete this creation’s strong character.

 

What is labdanum ? 

Never heard of it before ? Labdanum is actually very commonly used as it is a cornerstone of amber accords. It is a very fragrant, sticky resin obtained from the leaves of cistus, which grows in the Mediterranean Basin. Its notes are powerful, warm, resiny, waxy, woody, camphoric, slightly medicinal, and animalistic. If you have ever smelled frankincense, it is slightly reminiscent of this ingredient. It’s the perfect example of a balsamic note.

Labdanum exists in two forms: essential oil and absolute. The essential oil is extracted by steam distillation, while the absolute is the product of volatile solvent extraction. The two types smell quite different. The essence is more terpenic and climbing, whereas the absolute is warmer and more leathery. Labdanum makes an excellent fixative and is used as a base note.

 

How is plum obtained in perfumery ?

The scent of plum is more of an accord since there is no plum essential oil. Perfumers combine several ingredients to recreate the smell of a plum. They then work the facets to make it fruitier, greener or candied, for example. In 401, the plum presents velvety, sweet and gourmand notes with syrupy floral facets. It recreates the smell of a candied plum – enough to make your mouth water !

 

Have you ever heard of cinnamon leaf ?

Everyone is familiar with cinnamon but did you know that the leaves are also used in perfumery ? Fresh from Sri Lanka, the number-one global producer, cinnamon leaf smells different to the bark. It gives off hints of cloves and exotic fruits. Its essential oil puts a new twist on spicy and oriental compositions.

 

Mix & Match : 

Combine two fragrances (or three for the most daring) to create your own unique scented trail. Different dosages (one, two, three sprays) will give a unique result.

› 401 x 301 - When layered, the fragrances create a velvety impression that is more sensual, more intense and completely hypnotic
› 401 x 202 - It becomes fruitier, juicier and sweeter, making it even more addictive

 

How to use it :

Spray onto pulse points like the wrists, neck, behind the ears, and the crook of the elbow to make your fragrance last longer.

Obsession

C’est fou on dirait Calvin Klein Obsession

Nathalie grew up in the Grasse region, becoming well acquainted with perfumery from an early age. After starting her career in Research and Development in Grasse, she joined Fragrances Essentielles, where she has now been a perfumer for over 10 years. Ambery woody notes are her favorite, with sandalwood being particularly close to her heart. Good food, social interactions and the natural world are all sources of inspiration that guide her creations. Nathalie likes to play with the world around her. She loves our brand’s “Bon Parfumeur” signature, which she finds minimalist and chic! She thinks a Bon Parfumeur should be curious about everything and never stop learning. For her, a creative fragrance is a signature one.

She prefers amber woody notes, with a special loving for sandalwood.
