Aleksandr - Eau de Parfum


Aleksandr - Eau de Parfum


Parfumeur: Yann Vasnier

Cuir ambré

Janvier 1837, Saint Pétersbourg, Russie.

Un après-midi d’hiver glacé, un gentleman termine sa toilette par un mélange de néroli et de violette.
Il tire ses manchettes, enfile une lourde fourrure et sort à grands pas, botté de cuir poli.
Alors que son traîneau s’élance, le parfum vert et boisé des bouleaux emplit l'air.
Là bas, derrière les arbres chargés de neige, dans une clairière nimbée d’ambre, un duel fatidique l’attend.

Composition: Néroli, feuilles de Violette, feuilles de Bouleau, Cuir de Russie.

The story

A link between History, Architecture and Perfume...

Architectural history has the particularity of transporting us physically into the past, allowing us to understand its meaning. In a synesthetic experience of architecture, what we feel and smell is just as important as what we see. In essence, architecture is experience.

For Arquiste, the research carried out for the creation of a fragrance inspired by real-life experiences is just as complete as the research that leads to the restoration of an old building. Under construction, the clues justify the structure.

Through the meticulous search for authentic sources, the analysis of a specific time and place begins. Through the study of building materials, the literary history of the place and the site itself, the olfactory experience becomes more understandable.

Arquiste wishes to interpret the past in the present through perfume in order to link the olfactory memory to great moments in history.
