Fleur de Narcisse by L’Artisan : Perfume News


L’Artisan Parfumeur is releasing a second fragrance in its vintage collection, Fleur de Narcisse. Just like the lovely Fleur d’Oranger was composed out of flowers from the Vergers de Nabeul, Fleur de Narcisse is using the narcissus from the Volcanoes of Lozère. The scent of Narcissus Poeticus is intoxicating and magical, combining the rich verdancy of hyacinth and the warm sweetness of hay.

The press release describes Fleur de Narcisse in the following manner, “The fragrance opens on a top note of grassy green freshness, with accents of the country and wildflowers, and nuances of blackcurrant bud and freshly cut hay. The sensuality is ambiguous, nearly as masculine as feminine, evoking the powdery scents of mimosa and iris, and finally losing itself in the honey-like sweetness of sublime blond tobacco and the bewitching notes of moss and leather.”

Fleur de Narcisse will be released as a limited edition (3000 flacons), $295 for 100ml. It will be available in November from L’Artisan Parfumeur Soho, Henri Bendel, and Madison Avenue boutiques, select retailers, and L’Artisan Parfumeur. (information via press release)

  • violetnoir: This sounds amazing, and so does the price! I thought $250. was pricey for the first vintage release. I guess it just wasn’t enough for them, so they raised it. :):)

  • BoisdeJasmin: Elle, yes, at least, there is time to start saving! August 8, 2006 at 2:01pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Christina, the price is steep, but I already suspected that it was going to be higher than that of Fleur d’Oranger. Narcissus absolute is rather expensive. August 8, 2006 at 2:02pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: L, ah, the joys of weak dollar… I am curious to try it. August 8, 2006 at 2:03pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Kaori, my pleasure to share. The bewitching part certainly sounds great. August 8, 2006 at 2:04pm Reply

  • chaya ruchama: Dear V-

    Surely you know that I jest!
