Azzi Glasser (The Perfumer's Story)
Born out of the creator Sophie Broneau's passion for base notes, this art perfume collection has been created exclusively from essences that are traditionally used as base notes. The quintessence of perfumery, these profound, powerful and long-lasting notes have been showcased as never before to produce sensual fragrances which are capable of stirring our senses. The result is fragrances as art which offer a genuine “sensual signature”. They are multi-faceted, but above all linear. They are mesmerizing, full and complete perfumes with regressive notes (those notes hidden in your childhood or past memories, but which are still so familiar). They are meant to be worn alone - showcasing the finest, most precious ingredients in base fragrances, these elegant and identifiable notes form a genuine personal signature. They produce a powerful effect, with extreme sensuality and an instantly recognizable trail. Or they can be worn with other scents. You can create your own signature perfume… a truly unique, bespoke fragrance, just for you!
Broneau's idea was to create daring, base-focused, unique perfumes. She wanted the perfumes to be luxurious thanks to their ingredients and how they were composed. They would be purely beautiful perfumes, the result of a selection of noble and rare natural raw materials but combined in an unusual way. She wanted the perfumers to try new approaches, away from the dictates of conventional perfumes, leaving behind the traditional olfactory pyramids by rejecting the classically developed constructions, they would dare to “forget” the top-middle-base structure. It was crucial that the fragrances had unforgettable trails. In addition to these unforgettable trails, she wanted the perfumes to instantly deliver their “base-focused” identity without remaining crushed onto the skin. Since base notes have a higher molecular weight, they are the heaviest notes in a perfume. This gives them exceptional qualities: intensity, extreme persistence, a particularly sensual warmth on the skin and incomparable trail. Amber, vanilla, wood or animal, these warm, rounded notes are genuine triggers for our emotions. Each perfumer was free to choose the base ingredient which inspired him and to create the fragrance without any constraints, even financial as they were given an unlimited budget.
For Cedre-Iris three natural essences of cedar were used. Moroccan Atlas, Texas and Virginia cedarwood were blended with precision to enhance the vibrancy of the most precious and refined natural ingredient - Pallida Iris or Florentine Iris Absolute. A drop of benzoin and a dash of myrrh mellow and soften this woody-powdery base while gaiacwood and incense stir the senses. It is an eau de parfum, edp.
