Grenadille d'Afrique - EdP 3.4oz
From crackling sap to balmy resin. Smoky wood to sun-seared stone. Purple dusk to ink-black night. Aedes de Venustas’ seventh scent explores the age-old landscape of Africa in a tribute to ancient ebony…Grenadille D’Afrique.
Grenadille d’Afrique expresses not only its namesake tree, but also the primal landscape in which it grows. Intriguingly described as “fossilized wood rubbed in a vanilla accord”, this strongly contrasted composition sets its dark heart off with luminous notes.
It is dusk or dawn? Sparkling bergamot captures the last rays of the sun, while a purple haze of lavender and violet spill their powdery moonlight on the savannah grasslands… Run through from twigs to roots with aromatic, juniper-scented sap, this olfactory portrait of the mythical African Blackwood tree is built around a “trunk” of Haitian vetiver. With its complex facets of wood, smoke, earth and flint, it is the vertical axis that draws together the fragrance’s vegetal, animal and mineral notes.
Turned into combustible resin by a lash of ambery cistus labdanum, vanilla exudes its balsamic warmth. Bleached wood, skin-soft bark and sun-heated stone release the day’s heat into the ink-black night, cooled off by a breeze of musk…

La Femme Bohème - EdP 3.4oz
She travels in any direction the wind decides to blow, languid and free without the slightest worry in the world. Unbound by the restrictions of time, she follows her careless whims instead.
The sun is already high in the sky when she wakes on a bed of hay, a resting place not unfamiliar after a night drenched in the hazy pleasures of wine.
A soupçon of dried sweat mixed with a veil of cigarette smoke lingers on her skin, a scent intensified by the blaze of the afternoon heat. Who knows what today will hold? Life is just meant to be lived and she is La Femme Bohème.

Lumen_esce - EdP 3.4oz
Missive15 - Eau de Parfum 1.7oz
Exotic, complex notes that merge together into a beautiful oriental woody abstraction.
"Nothing makes the heart skip a beat more intensely than finding a long forgotten letter from a loved one, maybe inside the pages of a book, maybe in the bottom of a rarely opened drawer. Our reading stops at every word and our eyes become teary. We revive not only the moment those lines describe, we live again that same instant when we read the letter for the first time. Just like our memory gets a bolt because of a scent, written words etch themselves in our souls and make us feel stronger, more loved, more alive."
Inspired by how letters change our world and the lost tradition of letter writing, I was inspired to create a scent that would capture the essence of a hand written love letter and this fading tradition by encapsulating a letter in a single bottle.
In collaboration with master perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux, Missive15 -- the essence of a love letter was created.

Pélargonium - Eau de Parfum
Pre-Order: Pélargonium will ship May 15th 2017
The Muse: Egyptian Geranium
A very special variety of geranium -- not to be confused with the red blooms that grace window boxes --, Pelargonium graveolens, whose name means “sweet-scented”, yields one of the most versatile essences in perfumery. Distilled from the leaves of the plant rather than its flowers, it has long been used as a fresh rosy note, hence its vernacular name, “rose geranium”. Ever since the late 19th century, it is one of the key materials of the masculine fougère family. In Pelargonium, the perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer draws geranium from the depths of the fragrance pyramid to display its complex facets.
The Scent: Pelargonium
A strikingly elegant still life in scent, Pelargonium portrays its namesake ingredient like one of the mysterious floral compositions of Dutch Golden Age paintings. Described by Nathalie Feisthauer as “aromatic, with a crushed-leaf facet, less fruity and more balsamic than rose, almost incense-like”, geranium Egypt acts as the central motif of this intriguing composition.
The perfumer starts by stretching a canvas of cool orris notes on a neat cedar-wood frame. Then she paints a dark, smoky background of vetiver Haiti, guaiac wood and moss.
Shot through with glints of green cardamom, the golden light of Calabrian bergamot suffuses the scene, caught by richly textured ingredients that bring volume and contrast to the composition. The herbal sweetness of carrot enriches the orris accord; ambery clary sage suggests the softness of velvety leaves.
Lemony, peppery, incense-like elemi resin enhances both the fresh and balsamic facets of geranium. As a haze of musks smooths out its edges, Pelargonium’s stately bouquet takes on a spare, abstract beauty.

Brought back from Indochina in 1828, the mandarin-tree has since prospered on the occidental banks of the Mediterranean Sea.

The mandarin’s softness hints back to ancient times when its essential oils composed an elegant, odorant grammar.
