B683 - Extrait
B683 Extrait – 50ml
With this reinterpretation, the two creators offer a dive into the most sensual character of B683, an immersion at the heart of this perfume and its signature: the warmth and the depth of a woody-leathery accord. Here, it gains another intensity to become an authentic “patchouli leather.” Around that, other notes of the composition sublimate the different facets of this matter with tactile sensuality. Pepper and cumin offer the vibration of their spicy accents, the oud wood enhances the density of then accord while the vanilla brightens it with a caressing roundness. On the skin, B683 EXTRAIT marries the one who wears it as a double that underlines its presence.
The top note is spicy and liquorish with pepper berries essence, cumin seeds and green apple. The heart is really animalic and leathery. Made with safraleine, violet leaf and natural oud from Laos (ethically sourced). The base is warm and woody and concentrating the smell of patchouli from Indonesia, sandalwood from Australia and vanilla.
The fragrances of the Maison MARC-ANTOINE BARROIS are the result of the meeting of two young designers. One is a couturier, the other a perfumer. Their childhood memories brought them together. Remembering captivating smells; of the leather from an elegant attaché case or an immaculate desk blotter; of the distinct smells of wood during the regular gatherring, or of fuel to warm the family home. The artistic skills of the former and the olfactory talent of the latter together sparked the magic of these beautiful fragrances.

Sicilian Leather - Eau de Parfum
Inspired by Italy and the islands whose name recalls the songs of cicades. The sun stands proud, the earth welcomes it, the fruits are gorged with it. Italian bergamot oil, bitter orange oil. On the Mediterranean's greatest lady guards Mount Etna. The spirit of the volcano, its sovereign presence; balsam fir and white leather.
An island of character, made for a zesty, energetic, eruptive leather accord. From the alleys of the vibrant Palermo, between cardamom and coriander seed oil, on the flowery heights of Taormina, a violet-leaf accord, into the valley of the temples, the beautiful Sicilian soul unfolds. In its lands, in its mountains, a path of resins and woods wind its way. Cedar atlas oil, gaiac wood oil. The perfume is aerial, which allows the encounter of water and fire, cedrat and leather.
