L’Artisan Parfumeur Seville a l’Aube : New Perfume and Book


When Denyse of Grain de Musc shared that she would be coming out with a perfume memoir, it was intriguing enough. However, to learn that The Perfume Lover will also be accompanied by a fragrance makes the news even more exciting. Séville à l’aube, created by perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour, will be launched by L’Artisan Parfumeur. As Denyse shared in her recent post, it was “inspired by one of the most beautiful nights in my life, in Seville during the Holy Week under an orange tree in full blossom, wrapped in incense smoke and the arms of a Spanish boy…”

Séville à l’aube is “is an orange blossom oriental with zesty, green and balsamic effects, with notes of petitgrain, petitgrain citronnier, orange blossom absolute, beeswax absolute, incense resinoid, Luisieri lavender absolute and Siam benzoin resinoid.” It will be launched in July. Meanwhile, The Perfume Lover is about to land on the bookshelves in the UK next month and can be pre-ordered on Amazon.co.uk. You can read an excerpt on Denyse’s blog.
