Need a little pick me up, but don't want to break the bank? Check out some of the Little Luxuries that can make you feel like a million bucks without actually spending anywhere near that much. In this case, L'Artisan Parfumeur fits the bill with a variety of scentual treats for $135 or less.
My mother is a varitable "nose" as they say in the perfume business, with an uncanny sense for scents. She is able to decipher top notes, bottom notes and everything in between - and regularly laments over the lack of creativitiy in today's fragrance world, particularly in the US. A trip to France is a treat from any angle, but for her - the excitement lies in the opportunity to shop for perfume; and while Paris is nice, Grasse (the fragrance capital of the world) is heaven. Unfortunately for Americans Grasse and Paris are not within arms reach...luckily the Parisian perfume house, L'Artisan Parfumeur, is.
L'Artisan Parfumeur originated in 1976 with a unique take on home fragrance through aromatic amber balls. Two years later the independantly owned boutique-brand launched their first Eau de Toilette, Mure et Musc (a musky blackberry) spawning the now expansive perfume collection.
With over 30 scents to choose from; ranging from citrus to fruity, floral to woodsy, and musk to spicy - there is an option for every personality and mood. The collection is not divided by sex, which allows shoppers to try fragrance families they may not normally. And if none of their unique blends like Poivre Piquant, Chasseur des Papillons or Mechant Loup strike your fancy - make your own! Many of the scents are single origin (Premier Figuier, Verte Violette) and layering multiples works well for a completely personalized creation.
In a sea of synthetic clones, L'Artisan Parfumeur stands out with original fragrances based on only the purest natural ingredients. They even have an 100% certified organic line featuring the ocean inspired "Cote d'Amour" or ylang-ylang and grapefruit based "L'eau de Jatamansi". L'Artisan Perfumeur has boutiques across the wold in Paris, London, Tokyo and New York and is sold in various retailers nationwide (and online). So no matter where you are, everyone has access to this Little Luxury!
