Saffron, cinnamon bark Laos, everlasting flower and sawara cypress create an unforgettable journey across distant lands. The voyage unfolds from India to Laos and then to China and Japan, where the tart, dark nuances of ume plum are discovered. This breathtaking ingredient becomes infused with velvety plum liqueur, beguiling camellia Japonica flowers and rare agarbois, casting an irresistible spell of ravishing beauty—before the journey ventures into a warm and sensual terrain of amber, benzoin Laos, fir balsam absolute, vanilla absolute and infusion.

Fleur de Chine

Fleur de Chine is an unequivocally romantic and haunting, floral fragrance that is touched with reverence for the great fragrances of the past. It evokes an atmosphere of sophisticated restraint that evolves slowly into rich grandeur.

Precious Asian flowers, including the Hualan flower and star magnolia, are arranged in a bouquet of rare beauty. Their romance is enhanced with the elegant texture of fresh clementine and bergamot, blended with the soft, green effects of hyacinth. Sublime eastern treasures—jasmine tea, syringa, plum and tea rose balanced with wisteria, white peach and soft tree peony—whisper a story of insatiable longing. This medley of sophistication and sublimity keeps the fragrance blooming with presence. Yet the richness of Hinoki wood, Chinese cedarwood, amber, rare benzoin Laos, styrax and vetiver tempers the beauty with captivating seduction, adding an aura of glamorous mystique.

Bitter orange, pink peppercorn and rich black pepper blend with the warm richness of clove. Jasmine, rose and tuberose, combined with the very contemporary addition of vetiver and luxurious cashmeran, create a sensual coupling of spices and florals. The golden treasures of benzoin Laos, castoreum, cistus labdanum and guaiacwood are touched with addicting vanilla and captivating frankincense, creating a hazy reverie of glamour and temptation.

Rive d’Ambre

Rive d’Ambre is a golden-toned eau de cologne with a veil of colonial elegance. Precious citrus fruits—a talisman of good fortune in Asia—are beautifully illuminated by a warm and seductive, amber background.

Exquisite citrus fruits—bergamot, lemon and bitter orange oils—dance together with refreshing and refined light, surrounded by the uplifting textures of tarragon, cardamom and Moroccan spearmint oil. The bergamot weaves itself into these contrasting ingredients with aromatic splendor; in an unexpected twist, this citrus gift is cradled by the rich and seductive warmth o rare benzoin Laos melded with a beautiful, pear wood accord. A decadent pour of cognac oil touched with tolu balsam enhances the golden aura, which is made even more fascinating with the addition of addictive amber.
