Shop L’Artisan Parfumeur
Well before “niche fragrance” meant anything to anyone, L’Artisan Parfumeur were doing their own thing. With over forty years in the business of fine fragrance, L’Artisan Parfumeur believe absolutely in the power of quality and wearability. Sometimes, an excellent reputation is all the advertisement you need.
A brand well-loved by fragrance connoisseurs, they have a track record of causing revolutions in the perfume world. The first known fig fragrance was a signature creation of L’Artisan’s founder, French chemist Jean Laporte. This fragrance was Premier Figuier, which remains to this day a classic for those who love the sunshine warmth of fresh figs, and is still one of the best-sellers from L’Artisan Parfumeur. In the early seventies, L’Artisan also designed a new form of home fragrance in the form of the amber ball, which filled a room with the sweet smell of ambergris over years.
A tireless adventurer, L’Artisan Parfumeur fragrances are inspired and informed by travels all over the world. With a knack for making the astonishing wearable and inviting, L’Artisan always start with a single idea and approach it with complete freedom. This process ensures that L’Artisan Parfumeur fragrances are always unique. A stand out brand, particularly in a world so full of mass-market copycat fragrances.

If velvet was a smell
I reeeeally like this scent, it's probably my favourite out of everything I've tried from L'Artisan. It's just a touchy smoky but a clean kind of smoky.
This is 100% an autumn and winter scent for me - I like perfumes that make me pretend I'm all cosy in front of a fire drinking wine, even when I'm waiting for a tram when it's drizzling and 5 degrees.
You could wear it day or night but personally I prefer it to day - it's more toned down than my favourite night fragrances like Memo Paris French Leather.
On me it sits quite close to the skin, and doesn't last for a super long time, but I don't mind - not every fragrance needs to announce it's presence at every minute of the day.
