Fragrances -L'Artisan Fragrances -Riviera Palace


An absolute Beauty. Amongst all aldehydic florals such as Fleurissime by Creed and supersticious by malle this is by far the warmest, sfottest and most chic . Lovely demure vintage 1959s chic

Fragrances -L'Artisan Fragrances -Safran Troublant

on 8/16/2017 10:47:00 PM

A spicy Gourmand?! Yes please!!! Three cheers for yet another interesting creation from Bertrand Duchaufour (the nose) and L’Artisan (the house).
Trust that I love a fun and youthful, “so sweet you can almost feel the stickiness” gourmand - from Laura Mercier’s Crème Brulee to Prada’s Candy… Even so, it’s both exciting and refreshing when someone can put a major twist on the gourmand category of fragrances, especially in terms of sophistication, which is exactly what has happened here.

This is an oriental spiced gourmand – yowza! And lemmie tell you my friends, its intoxicatingly delicious! Per description, notes here are said to be passion flower, sandalwood, red rose, vanilla, saffron, ginger and sugar. However, I get zero sandalwood or red rose out of this scent. On me, I get candied flowers, saffron, some vanilla and ginger, along with wafts of cream… Description wise, Safran Troublant is sitting in a Paris café drinking an ultra spicy and fragrant Saffron tea as a fresh batch of crème puffs are placed on a table next to you.

This is sexy as hell to me – and just as unique. It’s warm and creamy, and hugs the skin. I am in love with this one, its way up there on my absolute faves by Duchaufour. As for cons, it would be my usual beef with L’Artisan fragrances: longevity and sillage are not the greatest, however, it’s better than the majority of my L’Artisan’s (I get 3ish hrs and that’s if I douse myself big-time). But this is such a lovely fragrance I don’t mind re-applying.

Fragrances -L'Artisan Fragrances -Noir Exquis

on 8/16/2017 10:46:00 PM


Yowza! There truly is something exquisite about this divine creation from Bertrand Duchaufour (the nose) and L’Artisan (the house).
This is a sweet and sexy composition. It’s warm and intoxicating, and on my skin I get maple, vanilla with caramel, tonka, coffee, and chestnuts. Although I have seen this described as an oriental spice, I would categorize it as a sophisticated and rich gourmand, with slightly masculine properties.

If you like sophisticated sweet scents, this one is for you.

Fragrances -L'Artisan Fragrances -Seville a l'Aube

on 8/16/2017 10:26:00 PM

This is interesting because I often see it described as a resin-laden woodsy citrus with beeswax, but all I get are aromatic white florals, balsamic, candied violets, and sugar fruit gummy candy. This is also said to be a sexy scent, with a risqué backstory, which I find interesting because get no carnality out of this fragrance at all. I find it to be playful and pretty, reminiscent of a summer evening stroll while eating sugar coated fruity candy right after the sun has set. This is unique in that it marries a lot of elements into one, yet it somehow manages to work cohesively. This is a very interesting composition by Bertrand Duchaufour, and very different then other scent I have by him. Unlike so many of my other L’Artisan fragrances, both sillage and longevity are outstanding!

Fragrances -L'Artisan Fragrances -Fou d Absinthe

on 8/14/2017 6:53:00 PM

I was a bit afraid of this and cautiously purchased it in 1.7 oz size (which have since been discontinued). However, this has turned out to be one of the most unique scents I have ever owned, and for certain it is one of the more interesting creations from both Olivia Giacobetti (the nose) and L’Artisan (the house). It’s whimsical and green, and I get top notes of Anise and something pine-ish, which fades into some sort of pink-peppercorn and ginger-mint composition. I find this scent to be extraordinary and full of heart. it does an interesting and playful little dance; I feel mischievous when I wear this. To me, this is like bottling the air at a royal renaissance jubilee, where the booze and conversation flows heavy with harps in the background while jesters keep everyone in hysterical laughing fits.

As other reviewers have noted, it’s a Somewhat masculine scent, however, not overpoweringly so IMO. As it wears I find this gracefully fades into the background in a way that tames it. I’d say its unisex in the same way as many of Giacobetti’s other creations, such as Dyptique’s Philosykos. I find the marriage of licorice/Absinthe, pink peppercorns, and mint birth a sweet and unique fresheness in the dry-down. This is one of the rare L’Artisan releases where I have no complaints regarding sillage or longevity.

I give this scent 3 stars for uniqueness and longevity. However, keep in mind that this is not a scent for everyone – for sure I can see how this would be off putting for many, esp. those who prefer feminine creations. I definitely think this is one of those “love or hate” compositions, with zero room for an in-between. This is a scent that can be appreciated for those who dig dangerous and unique scents.
