Acte d’amour furtif | Stealthy Act Of Love

Perfumer Amélie Bourgeois' creation for D'ORSAY is a woody, spicy fragrance that ignites feelings of impulsive love.

You're not prepared, and that's the very essence of it—this connection is born from spontaneity. Black Pepper, Violet Leaves, and Suede notes stir your instincts in this intoxicating spray. It's a sensation that transcends rationality, inhibitions, and the fear of societal judgment. Yet, here you stand, post-encounter, beside a stranger, and you have the perfect excuse: it was the fragrance's allure that led the way, not you.


  • Top Notes: Indian black pepper, Italian bergamot, cumin
  • Middle Notes: Iris, violet leaves
  • Base Notes:  Haitian vetiver, white musk, amber, suede, ambroxan, Virginia cedar, guaiac wood


  • Perfumer: Amélie Bourgeois
  • Unisex


Born in 1801, Alfred d'Orsay, son of a Napoleonic general, mingled with luminaries like Lord Byron, Victor Hugo, and Charles Dickens. As the director of the Beaux-Arts in Paris, he possessed an uncanny ability to set trends and was an icon for the New Yorker since 1925. Yet, his true essence lay in his free spirit, impertinence, and love for beauty.

He embraced life passionately, relishing the arts and living in the moment. The House of D'ORSAY, rooted in artistic collaborations, worked with talents like Jean Cocteau, Marie Laurencin, and Georges Lepape. Bottles designed by Baccarat, Daum, and Lalique held their fragrances, which garnered global acclaim and filled boutiques in Paris and New York.

In 2015, Amélie Huynh uncovered D'ORSAY, like a Sleeping Beauty, and dedicated herself to revitalizing it nearly two centuries later. With a lifelong love for fragrances, Amélie was captivated by the first scent Alfred d'Orsay crafted for couples with his love, Marguerite Blessington.

Amélie's mission is to honor D'ORSAY's original love story, delving into love's various facets, from emotional connection to carnal desire. She collaborated with renowned perfumers like Olivia Giacobetti, Mark Buxton, Karine Chevalier, Bertrand Duchaufour, Fanny Bal, and Vincent Ricord.

D'ORSAY's fragrances, both for him and her, embody the duality of love's transformative power. Maison D'ORSAY upholds French artisanal craftsmanship, working with independent perfumers who share their pursuit of excellence.

Their fragrances are named after clue phrases and bear the initials of an undisclosed personality, adding an air of mystery.
