Introducing our extra-special Festive Collection.

What better way to mark the holidays tan with an extra-special festive fragrance?

December 05, 2019

To celebrate the festive Season, our in-house perfumers Louise, Solene and Victoire have curated a range of five extra-special, limited edition contemporary fragrances. Our Noël range embodies the heritage scents of Christmas and the winter solstice, as well as evocative seasonal ingredients with singular, modern twists. 


Perfume alchemist Victoire de Neufville took her inspiration from the winter solstice to create the stunning Lux Terrae.


“I wanted to incorporate essences I really love from both East and West, and I loved hand-crafting this intense, aromatic perfume that’s perfect for the holiday season. I used rich winter citruses like Bergamot and Bitter Orange, are blended them with evocative Leather, Pepper notes and Incense because I wanted a sensual, warm winter perfume with a vibrant, lingering modern twist. 


I wanted something that stands out and creates an instant sense of familiarity and combining the materials of ancient pagan rituals with a modern, eastern influence was the ideal way to create an intoxicating seasonal fragrance that’s festive but also timelessly chic.”

Perfume alchemists Louise Pujol et Victoire de Neufville takes us into the mountains for the sparkling, sophisticated Silva Nivalia.  


“When I think about this time of year, I long to be up in the mountains – skiing in the Alps or walking in the crisp forest air. That’s why I decided to use the fresh, invigorating notes of Pine and Cedarwood, Oakmoss and Tonka Bean, which combine to instantly bring to mind the clean, crisp air of high-altitude, alpine slopes. 


I used our gorgeous, sparkling Marine Breeze accord to make this perfume really refreshing, and added some of my other favourite accords – spicy, bold Pepper and exotic Cardamom – to make this a really sophisticated perfume.”

Seraph Caelo is a lush, enveloping fragrance. Perfume alchemist Louise Pujol was inspired by intimate family Christmases. 


“For me, the holidays are a time for family. I wanted to create a perfume that embodied the magic of the relationship between parent and child; mother and baby. So it was important that this fragrance be sumptuous, fragrant and totally timeless. 


I began with incredibly lush floral notes, and built up gradually revealed layers of enveloping scents scents like Sandalwood, Jasmine, Milk and Green tea. 


The top notes evoke a beautiful nostalgic tenderness, and the lingering base notes are deeply comforting and embracing. I added elegant traces of lemon and peach, making this a perfume that makes you want to take a deep breath of.”

Bringing traditional flavours and playfulness to fragrance, perfume alchemist Solene Bourquin created zesty Dulcia Ignis.  

 

“I love Christmas food! As a child the aroma of cinnamon, cloves and winter spices filled me with joy. I wanted to create a fragrance for the festive season that is zesty and aromatic, and this festive fragrance takes the unmistakable aromas of a homely Christmas and adds a playful, modern twist. 


I used deeply warming Cedarwood and Musk  as base notes that linger beautifully, and added spicy Nutmeg, Cinnamon and Clove which really sparkle on the nose. Top notes of Bergamot, Lemon and Ginger make this a traditional yet sophisticated take on ancient festive delicacies, that smells really delicious!”

For festive nights in with a cosy fireplace and lots of hygge, Perfume alchemists Solene Bourquin et Louise Pujol created the intoxicating Tempus Aetheri.


“I really wanted to create a perfume full of cashmere softness and comfort, so I blended a complex, sensual blend of Musks, Sandalwood, Patchouli and Marine Breeze, inspired by the Norwegian concept of hygge, or home comfort.


This idea of being cosy at home really inspired this rich perfume, and I chose intense, smoky accords like Tonka Bean and Leather, evocative of profound restfulness and wellbeing. Woody and warming, this winter fragrance is full of the joy of hygge.
