#575 INSPIRED BY... Mure et Musk
Mûre et Musc is the iconic débutante of L’Artisan Parfumeur’s first collection and is noteworthy for its innovation and ultimately for its classicism. A memory of fizzy fresh berries, long green grass and the little white apron all set for blackberry picking on a sunny day. The irreverent contrast of warm white musk against zesty blackberries is what sets not only this fragrance but this niche perfume house apart, as a true pioneer in perfumery.
Top Notes: Musk, raspberry, orange blossom, bergamot, ylang-ylang
Base Notes: Jasmine, amber, patchouli, papyrus
#361 Inspired by Bvlgari Goldea is your go to for an injection of positivity and delight. The name means "Gold Goddess''. This fragrance has a delicious atmosphere of orange blossom with zest of bergamot and a shiver of raspberry. It's reminiscent of confectionary, and its golden aura of loveliness makes it the perfect rainy-day antidote.
#370 Inspired by Kenzo World opens with a surge of flowers by the armful, from petals to bouquets, with bursts of sweetness. It's a brilliant fragrance, with a lively sparkling trail, a crazy rock nectar with an intoxicating scent that titillates the nose. A shot of energy that benefits the soul. The key note in this fragrance is Ambroxan: Ambroxan gives the flowers the enticing quality that we need to forget them as such. It's a bit like the sfumato in the paintings of Leonardo da Vinci, when you juxtapose power. It acts like the fog, when the mist blurs the contours of things all around, and we only recognise their hazy outline.
Top Notes: Patchouli, watermelon, water notes, black pepper
Base Notes: Honey, vanilla, mimosa
#058 Inspired by Eau De Star by Mugler is no different to his unusual fragrance style. This is another discontinued scent Valley of Roses holds the formula to. There is something very comforting and retro about Eau de Star. #058 Eau de Star opens with a burst of creamy, black pepper. The mimosa spins sugary, sweet, and softly just behind this pepper accord. The mimosa quickly bows out while this creamy black pepper turns very sharp and almost green. The watermelon rind/aqueous fruit note surface and battles with the sharp black pepper. Well balanced.
