Description

L'Artisan Séville à l’Aube is the passionate story of a romance during the Holy Week, in the most captivating city of Andalusia, Seville, under an orange tree wrapped in the arms of a Spanish boy. Told by Denyse Beaulieu to master perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour, it awakened his imagination and led to the creation of this stunning soliflore. The orange tree is central to the story as well as the fragrance. It opens with spicy, green and zesty notes and gives way to the passion of the heart notes.  Enhanced by a jasmine accord and beeswax, the orange flower absolute reveals its opulence and stunning sensuality. Finally, base notes unveil a certain darkness, imparted by lavender from Seville and frankincense, giving a spiritual intensity to the entire perfume.  This scent is an amazing take on orange blossom, with contrasts that are unexpected, but render this scent beautiful and an exquisite pleasure to wear, even if you didn't have a hot Spanish boy in your past.  Denyse went on to write a book about it, "The Perfume Lover."

Notes of lavender, pink pepper, lemon tree leaves, orange blossom, jasmine, magnolia, beeswax, incense, Benzion Siam.

Reviews of L'Artisan Séville à l’Aube

From Bois de Jasmin - "Séville à l’aube appears as two fragrances, depending on some mysterious unknown force that renders it in one wearing as a nectar-filled orange blossom, unctuously sweet and then bitter with its tang of green.  The second fragrance is all incense and smoke where the lavender flatters the orange blossom into releasing an iridescence that shatters into tiny shards across the cinders and Siam benzoin of the base.  There is also a meeting of notes when everything comes together, from the toothsome sweetness of the orange flower to the dusky embers in the base, cut through by aromatic lavender that smells like a distant slow herbal burn."

From Perfume Posse - "Bright, sweet and very pretty Seville a l’aube has a very glamorous sillage and projection is excellent for the first hour or so when it calms dramatically to a softer, friendlier floral warmed by the various resins, incense and vanilla. It’s so lovely I feel cradled within a fragrant cocoon and close my eyes to drift off as I sit on my sun warmed verandah in Sydney’s winter. Life is pretty good."

From Persolaise - "Beaulieu’s book suggests that during the creation of the scent, the more nocturnal elements frequently fought for supremacy with the sunnier facets, and although I dare say the ultimate victory rests with the latter (the scent is named after the dawn, after all), there is no denying the participation of murkier players in the construction.  Rich, distinctive and technically dazzling (diffusion, tenacity and clarity of development are top notch) Séville À L’Aube deserves to be a success for Artisan. Not unlike Nuit De Tubéreuse, it takes its central premise, re-imagines it and presents it in a manner that feels both familiar and entirely unexpected… just like catching a glimpse of a silent ghost that’s been pulling you towards your own future since the day you were born."

    Pure love

    This is a perfume about indulgence. To me, it recalls a bitter orange with the most aromatic chocolate imaginable (that's what the incense reminds me of). You use this perfume to seduce a guy who knows he better not, but he looks at you and he knows that he's utterly powerless.

    One of my fav's!

    L'Artisan/Penhaligon's has always been one of my favorite perfumers. Seville a l'Aube has a lingering, lilting presence that changes with my body throughout the day. I don't get as much sweet orange blossom from it as I did from others, but I do prefer orange blossom, anyway. It's a stronger and more powerful scent than my typically more understated fragrances. I love that it's different and not a common "off the shelf" scent that I've noticed on anyone else. I always get the roll on because it's perfect for travel.

    Perfect for people who like sweet florals.

    I loved the opening notes of green in an orange blossom grove. The orange blossom was full-blown; the jasmine appeared with it a little later and made for a very sweet floral. The basenotes only appeared at the 6-hour mark and were very well-blended. I couldn't pick out the individual notes, just noticed that it smelled "grounded" finally and the sweetness was gone.

    pretty

    I get an initial burst of the lavender for about 30 seconds then it is just orange blossom and jasmine. It stays creamy and floral for the duration. I don't smell any incense. It just gradually fades away. It lasts longer than i thought it would which is a plus for me. It's sweet, but I don't think it's sugar syrup sweet. If you like orange blossom it's worth sampling.

    Orange blossom overload

    Many of you will not agree with me on this one; I know that it has already developed quite a following, and if you are an orange blossom lover, this one may well be made for you. On my skin, however, all I got was sweet orange blossom; no development, no other discernible notes, just sweet overwhelming orange blossom...
