Artist and indie perfumer Bruno Fazzolari has launched Au Delà Narcisse des Montagnes, a new limited edition fragrance. Au Delà Narcisse des Montagnes is a variation on the brand's Au Delà, and is being released with a limited edition five-color screen print.
This special edition of Au Delà includes a stunning absolute of narcisse des montagnes that I encountered late last Spring. No resemblance to the florist’s harsh paper-white, the material is fresh, vibrant, green and melodic—a perfect counterpoint to the rich amber basenotes of the perfume. Au Delà was inspired by the music of the French mystical composer Olivier Messiaen, who created luscious and intoxicatingly strange harmonies. The scent recalls the bold vintage chypres perfumes of the modernist era.
Additional notes include bergamot, jasmine, oakmoss, orange blossom and amber.
Bruno Fazzolari Au Delà Narcisse des Montagnes is $96 for 30 ml Eau de Parfum; the first 50 bottles sold in 2014 will come with a signed print. It can be purchased at the Bruno Fazzolari website or from Twisted Lily.
