Très Chère - Eau de Parfum
A letter from Alberto Morillas on Très Chère:
This letter might never reach you even though this is for you, just like this perfume. Our eyes have only met once but I feel like I have always known you. We were on the Paris-Venice train, that day when the train stopped in the middle of nowhere at night.
You were leaving when I was just coming in for dinner. You brushed past me, I looked at you. You said “Sorry!” My eyes stared at you, your profile, your eyelashes curves, the hem of your lips. One second which will last for eternity. One second, just enough time to create this perfume. It tells the story of this moment which has made such an impression on me. Everything was there. The sweetness of your voice, your gestures grace, which the musk roundness and the sandalwood and vanilla mellowness, seize so well here. Your silhouette outlined by the light, I see it as graceful as a white flower.
I looked for you for a long time, I would have loved to see you again. I am catching the train back tonight. I will keep these words to myself. And this perfume too.
-Top Notes: Orange blossom
-Middle Notes: Ambrox, paradisone, jasmine
-Base Notes: Bourbon vanilla, exalting, sandalwood
Rose Exaltante - Eau de Parfum
“We don’t know each other yet, but I know you won’t be able to live without me from now on. I am going to be your new obsession. You won’t see me coming and first, will only perceive my delicate Bulgarian rose whiff.
Then, the pink pepper and the chamomile blue will come along and subtly inebriate your senses with their spicy scent. Some say they surrendered at that very moment, totally taken by those spices to which I have added just enough of styrax and oud wood, to make it more sleek and graceful. I am not like other roses. You can’t pick me. You can not catch me. I am the one who comes to you. My scent is as powerful as woods and salves and hides the musk sensuality which quivers underneath the skin.”
-Top Notes: Hedione, Tunisian neroli
-Middle Notes: Tuberose, orange blossom
-Base Notes: Sri Lankan sandalwood, white musk
Perfect Oud - Eau de Parfum
Bright red embers slowly burn bits of oud wood; its smoke gives the full intensity of this amazing material.
“Perfect Oud” is the memory of this burnt wood for which Alberto Morillas made the decision not to include any oud wood essence. “Perfect Oud” is an emotion. The one of slow rising heat. A scent of leather and smoke which penetrates the skin and linens.
The rarely used Alaska cedar dominates here, revealing leather and incense notes. If coriander and bergamot oils cool it down, cade oil joins in to invigorate the blend.
Hot and radical, “Perfect Oud” eventually bends thanks to the rose and iris oils.
And smoke can turn into a marvellous wake
-Top Notes: Bulgarian rose, bergamot
-Middle Notes: Iris, oud wood
-Base Notes: Alaskan cedarwood
Mythique Vetiver - Eau de Parfum
Vetiver is the most predominant and stylish oil in men’s perfumery, which usually leaves an everlasting mark to the ones who cross its woody path. For Mythique Vétyver , Alberto Morillas has gathered altogether everything he loves: first, a vivid subtlety, which a combination of citrus and bergamot turns almost bitter and citrus fruit like.
Second, an oddly rose-like nature which Alberto Morillas found into the geranium, the flower he likes calling the “man’s rose”. And last, a dense and smoky identity, which has been enhanced with Papyrus and the woody-ambery notes of Patchouli and Labdanum Ciste. Yet at the heart of this magnificent brew, lays the intense and perfectly balanced notes of Haitian Vetiver.
-Top Notes: Bergamot, lemon
-Middle Notes: Geranium bourbon, labdanum ciste
-Base Notes: Papyrus wood, vetiver, patchouli
Luxury - Eau de Parfum
Powder foundation, make-up and cream scents... A woman is getting ready while a man is watching her. This man is Alberto Morillas, perfumer, who looks at the scene with his artistic eyes: from that moment he creates Luxury, a pure concentrate of femininity.
The most precious ingredients enhance the skin's natural scent like a hint of blush enhances the pink of a cheekbone. It smells like make-up, enveloping balms, sweet milk with floral and musky notes. There is orange blossom, a beautiful iris to which Alberto Morillas has added irone, this molecule naturally present in the rhizome and which gives the perfume its powdery signature. Then appear the shrouding notes of benzoin, vanilla and Tonka bean, to offer a perfume as soft as skin texture.
-Top Notes: Orange blossom, paradisone
-Middle Notes: Ambrox, iris
-Base Notes: Benzoin, vanilla, tonka bean, musceone
Ideal Oud - Eau de Parfum
“Ideal Oud” is the perfumer’s take onto two opposite raw materials, rose and oud wood: fragility and power in one hand, light and darkness, in the other hand.
To get control over the powerful oud wood, Alberto Morillas has combined it with a duet of roses, Bulgarian and Centifolia. The result? A subtle oud wood turned into a dark and mysterious flower, spiced up with fiery rose pepper and saffron.
One can feel the dominating, heady leather-wood scent, enhanced by papyrus wood and labdanum. “Ideal Oud” is as much for women as for men. Nothing too overwhelming or too brutal. But rather, a perfume as soft as silk satin on your skin.
-Top Notes: Bulgarian rose,rose absolute, pink pepper
-Middle Notes: Ylang ylang, saffron, Laotian oud wood
-Base Notes: Bourbon vanilla, papyrus wood, labdanum
For Your Love - Eau de Parfum
The scent of another: For your love is about taking risks. Imagine the scent of a kiss, with all the olfactory sensations that you experience in that fraction of second as you approach the other person.
The intimacy of skin, the warm musk of the neck at the hairline and the fruity, powdery fragrance of lipstick. It’s all there. Through notes of raspberry that evoke make-up, Exaltone© with its strangely human scent and the carnal pleasure of Cachalox© that is so close to ambergris.
Finally, for the sensuality of skin touching skin in a gentle caress, benzoin and patchouli add their depth and sweetness.
In olden days, they wore musk to indicate that they were looking for a lover and a good lover was said to be “as sharp as amber”, meaning they were gifted with great insight.
A note from the perfumer Alberto Morillas:
“This creation should be thought of as a statement by the perfumer, as we never create for ourselves, only for others. It is also a kind of olfactory game between the tenderness and pleasure two people can share. I like the idea of fun in wearing the same perfume. Therefore, it is just as enticing on a man’s or a woman’s skin.
-Top Notes: Raspberry, Exaltone
-Middle Notes: Cachalox
-Base Notes: Benzoin, patchouli
Eau de Gingembre - Eau de Parfum
In perfumery, citrus would usually be used to express invigorating freshness. Like a travel memory in India where the air gets refreshed through sprays of ginger water, Eau de Gingembre is a spicy composition which sparkles like the bright and intense note of ginger that bites the tongue when eaten freshly grated.
At the heart of the fragrance, a ginger CO2 extract, obtained through a process which keeps the entire product integrity. Bergamot, neroli and petitgrain oil bring in their citrus touch when fig Leaf and cypress oil create an everlasting sprightly feel. A clean, sharp and metaphorical creation as sharp as a dive in icy water.
-Top Notes: Bergamot, ginger Co2 extract, neroli, petitgrain
-Middle Notes: Fig leaf, cypress
-Base Notes: White wood
Cologne de Figuier - Eau de Parfum
Take a fig leaf, rub it in the palms of your hands, and then afterwards smell your hands. You will sense the green and crisp vivacity of the breaking stem, the roundness of the fruit that is still ripening in the sun and the freshness of an afternoon in the shade of the branches.
Cologne de Figuier is an "olfactory sketch" of this gesture leaving its fragrance on your skin. Based on a fig leaf accord with a zest of bergamot and grapefruit, the vegetal greenness of a galbanum adds a spicy touch of pink pepper. A wood marquetry, with mineral and amber notes, emphasizes the density of the tree, in the background. A fig tree sketched in one stroke by a perfumer, therefore tracing the contours of a bright, green and subtly woody Cologne.
A note from perfumer Alberto Morillas:
"This Cologne adds another dimension to the fig tree. It sets off the traditional fruity accents of the fig and releases the whole tree. We can sense the wood, the leaves, the branches. I wanted a composition that could be worn at any time of the year, like a desire to instantly remember a nap against a tree. "
-Top Notes: Bulgarian rose, rose absolute, pink pepper
-Middle Notes: Galbanum, pink pepper
-Base Notes: Cetalox, vulcanolide
