L'Artisan Parfumeur celebrates the 30th anniversary of their iconic Mûre et Musc fragrance with a new Parfum version (shown above) and two new limited editions:
The noblest of all, the most refined and feminine among fragrances: the extract. Created by Bertrand Duchaufour, Mûre et Musc Extrait de Parfum interprets the original by using the finest, most exceptional raw materials. It highlights the fruity, musky perfume of blackberries warmed in the sun, sensual and enveloping.
With the radiant sparkle of its top notes, the extract creates an effect of freshness with citrus fruits (kumquat, bergamot) and aromatic notes lead by basil. Spicy notes (pink and black pepper) strengthen its contrast and add to its enchantment.
The heart has the fruity note of the blackberry dressed with more heady floral notes, of Turkish rose essential oil and iris absolute, which add richness and femininity.
The base of patchouli and oakmoss are the signature of this typical chypre harmony. The smooth and velvety leather note with a hint of vanilla, brings distinction, the elegance of the extract and even more femininity.
The extract is presented in an exquisite 15 ml bottle with the seven symbolic facets of L’Artisan Parfumeur and a cap made of zamac finely engraved with the coat of arms. It comes in its own box of subtle warm gold and black and purple lacquers. A 15 ml refill comes with this bottle of exception.
Also new, limited edition collector versions of Mûre et Musc Eau de Toilette (above left) and Mûre et Musc Extrême Eau de Parfum (above right), both in 100 ml: "Finely engraved blackberries ornate every facet, dark purple lacquer creates a stunning effect of light and shadow".
L'Artisan Mûre et Musc Extrait de Parfum is $280; the Mûre et Musc Eau de Toilette limited edition is $135; the Mûre et Musc Extrême Eau de Parfum limited edition is $155. (via press release)
