L'Artisan Poivre Piquant was launched in 2002, created by Bertrand Duchaufour. It is a spicy Oriental fragrance inspired by a wedding in the Kama Sutra where sugar and pepper were sprinkled on the bride's veil. Sugar is for the sweetness of life and pepper is for the sparkling joy.
Reviews of L'Artisan Poivre Piquant
From Basenotes - "’L'Artisan seem to specialize in soft, soft, soft skin scents that work beautifully on the days when one doesn’t feel like wearing something ponderous. This is about as piquant as a cherub’s kiss, though there is a petulant burst of pepper at the start. But it turns good-humoured almost instantly to hop, skip and jump gaily over a cuddly and playful milky-soapy-floral accord. An all-weather scent which is distinctive enough to become your own rather than blend into a lake of bland."
From Makeup Alley - "This is one of those weird fragrances where you put it on, and you can’t fully describe in words how you smell. I get a strong essence of pepper and that note stays with me throughout the day, with a touch of sweetness from the honey. Although unusual, I’ve gotten compliments on this scent anytime I’ve worn it out."
