                                            THE ART OF FRAGRANCE LAYERING
                                                                        With
                                                          L'Artisan Parfumeur
                              


I find it a privilege and a honor to wear a fine fragrance. It is a honor to wear a scent that is constructed with fine ingredients and a constructed with a theme/story behind the making of the scent.

Now, I am speaking of wearing just one fragrance with these sentiments but wearing two fragrances at the same time, now that is 'Art of Fragrance Layering'.

Recently, I was looking for a few perfume samples that I could wear on June 21st, the first day of summer that would represent floral, summery, French and dreamy.

My plastic cubicle is full of perfume samples. So, I thought I play a little game by closing my eyes and reaching into the cubicle for the first sample I could reach.

To my utter surprise, I grab the sample that I really wanted. It is indeed floral, summery, dreamy and it was made in France.

I thought well since my luck was good on the first try, why not grab another sample and see what happens.

I closed my eyes and reached inside the cubicle and this time I grab a sample that was completely different than the first.

This time, the fragrance was more intense, spicy and one of the ingredients is ancient.

Guess what, it was composed by the same French perfumery.

These two fascinating fragrances are from the house of L'Artisan Parfumeur. A perfume house known for their unique and globally recognized scents all created by several Master Perfumers.

The first sample I grabbed from the cubicle was Mimosa Pour Moi Eau de Toilette. This scent is a delicate floral depiction of the mimosa tree and it was composed by Anne Flipo for women (in my estimation).  

The description of Mimosa Pour Moi is described by L'Artisan Parfumeur to portray lying under a tree with highly fragrant yellow flowers on the French Riveria.

What I love about this fragrance is its exact parrellel to the mimosa tree with a creamy smell dipped with vanilla and a deepness with blackcurrant bud.

I put on my right and left wrists two drops of Mimosa Pour Moi.

The second sample I grab from the cubicle was AL Oudh Eau de Parfum. This fragrance is spicy and made with Arabian wood which is another word for "Oudh".

AL Oudh Eau de Parfum is rich with a smoky scent softened by orange blossom and rose. The incredible Master Perfumer for AL Oudh Eau de Parfum is Betrand Duchaufour for women and men.

I put on my right and left writes two drops of AL Oudh.

I waited for about three minutes and then I took a sniff.

My first word was, "wow! I complete and beautiful fusion of sweet, woody and floral wrapped together that stayed on my wrists for more than 10 hours.

I had to come up with a name for this great experiement with 'The Art of Fragrance Layering'.
I called it Mimoudh Eau de Parfum. its Mimosa Pour Moi Eau de Toilette + Al Oudh Eau de Parfum. My creation of Mimoudh Eau de Parfum is for women and men.


This was a tremendous moment for me because I usually do not layer my fragrances but having both scents from the same perfumery gives me a profound respect for 'The Art of Fragrance Layering'.

If you are familiar with Jo Malone fragrance collection, that luscious and gorgeous scents are designed to compliment each other. In fact, they highly recommend it!

Did L'Artisan Parfumeur design this master plan of fragrance layering? I am sure they would not mind if you do but because the selection of perfumers are so well skilled and accomplished that it is almost without a doubt each fragrance composed by this perfumery would compliment the other.

The ultimate experience with fragrances is discovering your own way of wearing it. No person's scent will smell the same on another person. So, it is important to try and have fun with it. I bet you have 'The Art of Fragrance Layering' right in your cubicle, too.

The word "belles lettres" is a French phrase meaning "beautiful or "fine writing. Since this is a term to describe a category of writing, this will pertain to my passion about fragrances. I will review niche,natural, artisan and designer perfumes from all over the world. I write with passion but will use my journalistic skills that I obtained in college. Not only will I feature fragrances but I will feature new books on fragrances/perfumes, fragrance events and interview authors and perfumers.


I hope you take this journey with me and begin your own passion for the ART OF PERFUMERY!
