As a part of their Les Paysages, a collection of fragrances that pays tribute to French landscapes and the nurturing properties of Mother Earth, which speaks about ancient travels, L’Artisan Parfumeur launches the new fragrance Le Chant de Camargue which portrays the Camargue region in France: Aigues-Mortes, Arles, and Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer – with the help of master perfumer Alberto Morillas.

This fragrance is my olfactory tribute to the Camargue, a region of character with authentic landscapes.

Alberto Morillas

Alberto Morillas is a renowned master perfumer, in 2003, he is the winner of the François-Coty Award for best perfumer, and in 2013 he receives the Fifi Award for his entire career. Today, Alberto Morillas pays tribute to the Camargue, a region of character with authentic landscapes…

Browsing through his travel itineraries/diaries, Alberto Morillas recalled the flights of pink flamingos and the Fêtes des Prémices du Riz – rice festivals – brought to life by the incredible parade of floats. But, first and foremost, the floral, powdery, creamy aroma of rice is indelibly etched in Alberto Morillas’s memory.

This aquatic, herbaceous plant is dark green to start with. It gradually turns a beautiful shade of amber at the start of the flowering season as it bends beneath the weight of its ears. Alberto Morillas creates a fragrance that smells ‘white’ thanks to the aqueous floral notes of Hédione® and Paradisone® coupled with deliciously milky sandalwood, the beguiling aroma of ‘Camargue rice’, and fresh Calabrian bergamot accords are placed at the top of the composition. The tribute to this Camargue treasure trove is so realistic and the blend of aromas and sensations so perfect that you could be strolling through a real paddy field.

L’Artisan Parfumeur La Chasse Aux Papillons

LArtisan-Logo

A change of hands to a skilled family of perfumers with over 100 years of expertise marks a new chapter in the history of L’Artisan Parfumeur. With this new beginning comes a fresh perspective—a return to the brand’s roots. This new vision is fuelled by the desire to allow the iconic heritage of the brand to flourish though love of nature and the new, as well as by a reverence for Jean Laporte’s original passion for perfume.

La Chasse Aux Papillons captures the last warm breath of a sunny day. Dusk draws over the blue skies and the day becomes golden. In this perfect moment before day becomes night, the air is sun-drenched and filled with white flowers. The light is soft and seductive. The mood is daring and mysterious. The scent of jasmine lingers in the air together with the last butterflies of the day.

La Chasse aux Papillons is a childhood memory inspired by chasing butterflies and playing under summer skies. It is a carefree time. Long, sunny days and meadows full of flowers in bloom. Imagine lying under the shade of citrus trees and looking up towards the sky. Wispy white clouds and butterflies float above. The gauze of butterfly wings and fine nets echo the delicate nature of this fragrance.

Top notes: Pink Pepper, Saffron, Orange Blossom
Heart: Jasmine, Linden, Ylang Ylang
Base: Tuberose, Vanilla, Vetiver, Beeswax

The scent of white flowers on a summer evening, blended with the freshness of bay rose and the opulence of saffron.

L’Artisan Parfumeur La Chasse aux Papillons is availble as 100 ml Extrême Eau de Parfum, 116 Euro

Creating a perfume is an art. Each perfume is different in so many ways, and there are no two that can be exactly alike. When asked how she came up with her new perfume, Gabrielle Chanel said that she talked about her ideas with a perfumer who then came up with a bunch of different versions that suited her vision. She picked one and that was her scent.

Whether it’s celebrity perfumes or ones for a label, it seems that the perfumer is working under the direction of someone else and has limited say over how the perfume should actually smell.

But there’s a label that turns this on its head: L’Artisan Parfumeur is a line that takes the master perfumers from all over the world and gives them the creative reign to make the perfume fo their dreams. Having a no holds barred approach has meant that this label is often on the leading side of trends, and each of their creations inspires perfume companies around the world.

L’Artisan Parfumeur was the result of a challenge, a plaisanterie. Due to his training as a chemist, a friend asked Jean Laporte if he could create a banana scent to wear with a costume of the same fruit to a gala evening at the Folies Bergères. This was quickly followed by grapefruit and vanilla fragrances.

He experimented and created original scents with ‘natural essences’. With the success of his first line of fragrances, Jean Francois Laporte was named L’Artisan Parfumeur – the craftsman of fragrance – by perfume enthusiasts.

L’Artisan Parfumeur’s classic fragrances remain unchanged throughout its 40-year history. A true mark of confidence in its alchemy, the perfumes are as modern today as they ever were.

Made with passion and artisanal finesse to symbolise a different olfactory journey, each fragrance carries with it creative freedom and artistic flair: the hallmark of its master perfumer. In homage to its founding philosophy, the fragrances take you on a journey of exploration, one that fuses the careful craft of man with the beauty of nature. As experts of their craft, each of our master perfumers understands the harmony and structure of their chosen notes, notes that shift and flow subtly as the fragrance unfolds on the skin.

The flacons, bringing to mind all the mystery and allure of an apothecary den, L’Artisan Parfumeur’s bottle is resplendent in dark, smoky glass. Each elegant bottle carries the brand’s stamped emblem, a silent insignia of L’Artisan Parfumeur’s dedicated craftsmanship and genuine authenticity. The bottle’s signature heavy cap and iconic heptagonal shape remain, not simply as an ode to understated modernity but as the brand’s distinctive seal, reaching back into its past and striding forth into its future.

The L’Artisan Parfumeur experience doesn’t stop at scents for the body. They also make scents for your home and one of them have achieved cult status. In 1976 L’Artisan created and presented an innovative home fragrance shaped as Amber Ball. Each ball is handmade of terracotta and contains crystals of herbal origins infused with the rich scent of ambergris. The smell of crystals lasts for about two years, and they can be replaced with new ones afterwards.
