L’Artisan Narcissus is another fragrance from the special harvest series that saw the release of Fleur d’Oranger in 2005. The new fragrance is composed using narcissus harvested on June 6th and 7th, 2005, in Lozère, southern France. Read about it and the millésime trend of L’Artisan and Givenchy fragrances in the article by Chandler Burr in NYT.
Narcissus oil is produced from several species of narcissus, Narcissus poeticus, N. tazetta, and N. jonquilla. The scent is heady and rich, reminiscent of dark green foliage hiding the scattering of jasmine and hyacinth blossoms.
