L'Artisan Parfumeurs: The Power of Three

Famed perfume house, L'Artisan, is getting ready for a series of three new perfume launches this fall. In October, the french niche perfumery will introduce its own new scent called Fleur de Liane (Vine Flower) to be offered exclusively at eight New York-based Barney's stores and five of its L'Artisan boutiques stateside. All three of the upcoming fragrances are said to be unisex and blended by perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour, who became L'Artisan's in-house perfumer six months ago. L’Artisan’s Fleur de Liane fragrance was inspired by Duchaufour’s travels to the Panamanian island of Bahia Honda during the rainy season. “The idea was to capture the scent of the forest,” he said, adding the result is an “abstract concept, [the aroma] of an imaginary flower.”

Also in October, a collaborative fragrance with Aedes de Venustas, the gorgeous perfume boutique in New York, will be unveiled. The Aedes de Venustas scent, a woody-oriental eau de parfum, was unveiled at a luncheon held at the Manhattan home of Marjorie and Michael Loeb on Thursday. The scent features top notes of orange, pink pepper, cardamom and incense; a heart of black pepper, rose, iris and cedarwood, and base notes of patchouli, coffee, opoponax, benzoin and tree moss. Notes of white musk and vanilla have been added for a soft touch.

The trio will round off with L'Artisan's launch of a fragrance they are developing for L.A.-based perfumery Scent Bar, of heritage, in November. The scent, in its infant stages, is going by the code name Chaparral, taking its name from Southern California’s dominant dry shrub plant community that the fragrance’s notes intend to capture. Scent Bar co-owner Adam Eastwood says of L'Artisan, "They really have a history of painting a picture with a fragrance and that struck us as something we wanted to do.”

And so they do ...
