This December, Annick Goutal will launch a new trio of unisex fragrances under the name Les Orientalistes. Ambre Fétiche, Myrrhe Ardente and Encens Flamboyant focus on the precious ingredients amber, myrrh and frankincense, respectively, and were inspired by 19th century paintings depicting beauty rituals in the harems. Next year, look for a fourth scent to join the collection, this one based on musk.
The Les Orientalistes collection fragrances were developed by perfumer Isabelle Doyen in collaboration with Camille Goutal. Ambre Fétiche, Myrrhe Ardente and Encens Flamboyant will be available separately in 100 ml Eau de Parfum (€120) or in a limited edition coffret of three 50 ml bottles housed in a white leather box (€500). (via cosmeticnews, cosmetiquemag.fr) I'll update with the notes eventually!
