Au Delà - Narcisse
Au Delà - Narcisse is a classic white-floral chypre, made in the old-school way with genuine oakmoss and labdanum. The narcissus note is clear, fresh and unmistakable, and is supported by heavy doses of highest quality absolutes of Egyptian jasmine and French orange flower. We make this with a very rare and exquisite extraction of Narcissus, but this is no fading flower! The flowers are supported by a classic base, richly spicy, and resinous and with just the right amount of animalic purr. The proportion of these high quality natural floral absolutes is very high and the formula is far and away my most expensive. The retail price is therefore a bit higher than my other scents. Samples size is also smaller but comes in the same glass mini sprayers.
Au Delà is French for "the beyond," and this perfume is inspired by the music of the French mystical composer, Olivier Messiaen who created luscious and intoxicatingly strange harmonies. The scent recalls bold vintage chypres perfumes and a time when fragrance was still bold, adventuresome and complex.
