Indie perfumer Bruno Fazzolari has launched Fontevraud, a new unisex limited edition fragrance celebrating the 15th anniversary of niche boutique Luckyscent.
Inspired by The Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, a 900 year-old french monastery that was the burial place of Eleanor of Aquitane and Henry II. After the revolution it was transformed into a prison that became the setting for Jean Genet’s autobiographical novel, The Miracle of the Rose.
...with a bright, dynamic combination of a classic chypre style set against a modern, fruit-infused rose, Fontevraud is a celebration of the ancient, the contemporary, and the fascinating ways those concepts can intersect. Fresh, mouthwatering fruit with a tropical tinge ignites the senses and puts a smile on your face, while a rich, oakmoss-heavy chypre construction radiates old world elegance. At the center, a dynamic rose- both lushly gorgeous and sharply modern- embraces the contradiction, feeling romantic and energized in equal measure.
The notes feature bergamot, guava, pear, rose, oakmoss, opoponax, patchouli and amber.
Bruno Fazzolari Fontevraud is $145 for 30 ml Eau de Parfum at Luckyscent.
