Quote from the perfumer:
“Immortelle fascinates me. It is all around my place in the Corsican maquis, where I spend as much time as possible. I wanted its radiance during the summer solstice when it is gorged with the sun. It was a chef friend of mine who unwittingly gave me the key to the composition: associating ingredients that have the same color. “It always works”, he claimed. As soon as I’d found my saffron – apricot – lemon accord, I knew I had the starting point of my story. Since I wanted a velvety texture, I chose a natural, juicy apricot, which also brings a soft orange light. This is one of my shortest formulas. I wanted it to be impactful, obvious while remaining elegant.”

A classic chypre is characterized by top notes of citrus, often bergamot; a full-floral heart, like jasmine and rose; and mossy, woody notes in the base, such as patchouli, oak moss, and labdanum. For those who appreciate fragranced complexity and layered compositions, chypres are very exciting and worthwhile to explore!
