A limited edition initially launched in 2011, PRALINÉ DE SANTAL was snapped up and sold out by our retailers in just a few days… “collector” bottles at impressive prices then appeared on second-hand sites, much to the dismay of fans. Requests for returns of this fragrance continued unabated for over a decade.

THE INSPIRATION

A woody mischief In 2009, at the height of the perfumer’s “Dark Gourmand*” period, a fan challenged the perfumer during a joyful and passionate in-store customer-creator meeting: – “Make us a sandalwood-hazelnut…but nothing sweet!” The latter, amused by the interesting association, simply replied: – “A subject for an essay… I dare you!”

THE FRAGRANCE

A Sandalwood that is both monolithic in its proportions and ethereal in its evolution, tenderly powdery and enhanced by just-roasted hazelnut. In the heart, the perfumer uses the powdery strength and diffusive power of heliotrope to energize and space out the notes: the accord gains in volume and lightness, sandalwood is omnipresent without collapsing. In the base notes, Cedarwood stiffens the sandalwood and gives it verticality, while Fleur de Sel gives it a driftwood air and definitively neutralizes any hint of sweetness.
