For this 2021 rewriting, the classic duo Hesperides-Vetiver, expresses itself through new proportions. Free of aromatics, citrus fruits radiate, tearing with their subtle nuances, a veil of iris and honey hiding a chypre background with a contemporary roundness.

Creations from perfumer Pierre Guillaume all have a strong character. This classically schooled chemist is an independent perfumer who works from his studio in Clermont-Ferrand, France. The use of innovative ingredients shows that he has a solid foundation in chemistry and a hunger for creation. One of these innovations he uses is a process called photo-refining: the flattening of olfactory peaks via ultraviolet radiation. This technique gives his perfumes their special characteristics, for example the characteristic liveliness in 02 Cozé or the melancholy in 05 l'Eau de Circé.
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!
