French niche line Parle Moi de Parfum has launched Haute Provence, a new fragrance. In 2019, the brand introduced Saffron Wood. Both were developed by perfumer Michel Almairac.
Haute Provence ~ "We all have a memory in Provence, child or adult, this region is synonymous with lightness, letting go and holidays. Haute Provence / 89 is our tribute to it. The beauty of its lavender fields perfectly aligned as far as the eye can see. A plant which by its flower alone floods a region and colors it for eternity. It is the most beautiful thing, its simplicity renders the superfluous old-fashioned and makes it an icon which crosses the world. Lavender is the star here, the melons and watermelons bring sunshine and make it seductive, a hint of Narcissus, bewitching. If there were only one, this note would be the signature."
Saffron Wood (not shown) ~ "London on December 19th, Big Ben rings 9 o’clock. The hustle and bustle of the horns has subsided. A rainy mist colors the grey cobblestones of the streets of Soho and I soak up this damp and surprisingly calm atmosphere. The frenzy of the day has given way to crowded restaurants with the smells of spices merging with those of fashionable tailors. The power of the Saffron and the verticality of the Cedarwood combine with the Rose and her timeless elegance. I’m carried away by this astonishing mixture and I am writing in my thoughts this accord of three raw materials behind which a silhouette is taking shape: Saffron Wood / 91 will be a leather, sophisticated and metallic, London in its most enigmatic colors."
Parle Moi de Parfum Haute Provence and Saffron Wood are available in 50 (€95) and 100 ml (€155) Eau de Parfum.
