Celebrity pastry chef François Payard has launched Inspirations by Payard, a trio of chocolate based perfumes developed by perfumer Calice Becker:
Bergamot Truffle ~ "A citrus with a twist, this seemingly fresh creation hides within its heart a deliciously dark secret, a rich, non-sweet, elegantly bitter note of the finest and the darkest chocolate." With notes of dark chocolate, Calabrian bergamot, orange flower and Tahitian vanilla.
Lychee Mousse ~ "Mouthwatering and complex, the smell of lychees is a perfume in itself, an intense, creamy, fruity aroma with a hint of roses. Payard brings the delicious smell to life in its new creation which blends lychee with velvety white chocolate and ripe, juicy raspberries." Additional notes include Turkish rosewater.
Pistachio Ganache ~ "We adore the slightly toasted, almost a little smoky feel of pistachios in Pistachio Ganache, and the way milk chocolate makes the blend sinfully rich, while lavender honey adds to it an unexpected and sublimely elegant bitter aspect." Additional notes include Egyptian jasmine.
Inspirations by Payard Bergamot Truffle, Lychee Mousse and Pistachio Ganache are available now at Luckyscent in 50 ml Eau de Cologne; $42-48 each. (via luckyscent)
