From BDK Parfums’ Collection Parisienne, where each creation takes the wearer on a journey through the districts of Paris, telling stories, portraying moments and capturing memories along the way. Paris is the anchorage of BDK Parfums, and in this collection, they seek to evoke the charisma and eclecticism of the incredible city where modernity and tradition meet. 

On the Saint-Bernard Quay, near the Jardin des Plantes, the first couples arrive at the Tino-Rossi garden. Tucked away beside the Seine river, this is a spot where people come to dance. As night falls, more dancers arrive, and the bleachers fill up. Lit up by the silver moon and the lights from nearby tourist barges, bodies mingle to the rhythm of the music. 
It is then they make eye contact, and walk towards one another. As if in a trance, they dance in the heat of the night, and eventually decide to leave together. In the early morning, their crumpled sheets give off the scent of sleepless nights, of mischievous and lascivious embraces.

Top: Fig, Black Tea, Cardamom Essence 
Middle: Iris Absolute, Bourbon, Vetiver
Base: Indian Sandalwood, Tonka Bean Absolute

Mathilde Bijaoui

This incredible scent opens with the greenness of creamy fig and bright cardamom, complemented by the tannin of black tea. The warmth of the bourbon and spice of the vetiver appears, which after a while develops further to reveal the waxy creaminess of the iris, which blends perfectly with smooth sandalwood and earthy tonka bean. Gris Charnel has fabulous longevity and will last 6-8 hours on the skin… and on the sheets. 

Gris Charnel means Carnal Grey in French, perfectly evoking a romantic evening beside the Seine, paved with grey stone. This scent plays with both light and dark, like lights reflecting off the river. Completely genderless, utterly addictive, and wholly sensual, we adore this interpretation of fig and sandalwood.  

BDK Parfums is an independent perfume house founded by David Benedek. Specialising in unique, creative fragrances made up of high-quality raw materials, each scent has its own narrative, its own tale to tell. 
One of the youngest designers and house founders in the industry, David was born in 1989 to a Moroccan/Algerian mother and a Romanian father. Fragrance runs in his family – his grandparents opened a perfume boutique in Paris shortly after arriving there from Transylvania in the 60s. 
Each BDK fragrance works around a particular raw material, giving it a life and a story of its own. The house is in a perpetual search for flawless raw materials, which is why most concentrates they use are from the Grasse region in France. The creative process is never rushed; new scents are complete when the perfect equilibrium between notes is found, the alchemy perfect.
David wants people to choose their fragrance as they choose a book in a library – by wearing one of BDK’s scents, a person can experience the story of the perfume, and find the link between fragrance and imagination. 
BDK Parfums is based in the heart of Paris, Palais-Royal, so the lids of the BDK bottles have been designed to pay homage to the dome of the iconic Grand Palais. The monument holds many French treasures and is perfectly representative of French savoir-faire – of liberté, égalité, and fraternité – perfect for this proudly French house.
