The ‘amber’ accord as an olfactory concept arose late in the 19th century when the vanillin compound was first synthesised and blended with labdanum. With modern science now able to synthesize a natural vanillin from Madagascan vanilla extract, we set out to create a natural modern amber true to Art Deco Paris and a hedonist’s delight.
All the hallmarks of a traditional amber, vanillin, labdanum, sandalwood, patchouli are there, with an Abel modernisation: pink pepper and juniper berry brighten the top, and cacao and tonka add a gourmand heart to this sophisticated oriental fragrance.
Midnight in Paris meets Copenhagen chic. Sensual and elegant on women, leathery musk on men. Perfect for either, best by night.
