SO WHAT IS haute parfumerie?
"Haute parfumerie" or "high perfumery" is to perfumery what haute couture is to fashion. The one-of-a-kind creations are handcrafted in small batches. The process is laborious with long internal steps and requires at least 6 months aging vs. industrial perfumery with unimaginative formulas, fast-aged in a month. The result is similar to fine wines, rendering living perfumes with a unique scent profile. Our fragrances are numbered, signed and personalized with your monogram. Haute perfumery is all about artistry, uniqueness and exclusivity.
PARFUMS ABSOLUS 30%
The distinction between various perfume categories (eau de toilette, eau de parfum) lies in the concentration or percentage of perfume oil in an alcohol base: eau fraiîche (1-3% concentration), eau de toielette (10-15%), eau de parfum 15%-25%), extrait de parfum, the most concentrated format, (+30% concentration), also simply called "parfum". Technically, our perfumes are "extraits" or just "parfums". So, we decided to call them "Parfums Absolus 30%", due to their concentration and high content of absolutes, the champagnes of essential oils.
