Neroli ad Astra is an hommage to orange blossom and neroli by Pierre Guillaume. The summery and lighter sister of Louanges Profanes, Neroli ad Astra is radiant, energetic and smells like summer.
Ad Astra comes from Latin and means ‘to the stars’. Appropriate for a fragrance that is lighter and more upbeat than the original, the incense and benzoin give way to agave flower and vetiver.
“Neroli ad Astra is a fresh, clean and crisp composition. For those who search gentle perfumes, invisible in the air, but present close to skin.” quote Juraj, BL’eauOG

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.
Floral fragrances celebrate the delicious scent of flowers, being the richest source of inspiration for perfumers. The use of flowers in perfumes have been used since antiquity; from soft delicate flowers like freesia, muguet and blossoms, to narcotic flowers like jasmine, tuberose and gardenia... Enjoy, and smell the roses!
When he was just 25 years old, Pierre Guillaume launched his first perfume called Cozé. Chandler Burr, renowned and respected perfume critic, described this fragrance as 'the coolest of new European fragrances from a young French chemist'. That was the beginning of his career and his own perfume house: Parfumerie Générale, which is now called Pierre Guillaume. Pierre Guillaume uses innovative processes to create fragrances. You can recognize his personal style in his perfumes, with high-quality scents that remain perceptible on the skin for a long time without overpowering.
