Un Air de Bretagne is a part of the Les Paysages collection from L’Artisan Parfumeur – a collection telling the story and paying homage to the beautiful French landscape. As nature plays such an integral role in the L’Artisan Parfumeur story and inspiration, the Les Paysages collection showcases the best of France. Featuring the finest flowers and plants, Alberto Morillas’ collection under L’Artisan Parfumeur takes us on an olfactive journey through France. Inspired by the wild Brittany coast, L’Artisan wanted to capture the coastal iodized oxygen in a fragrance. To delicately evoke the sea sprays, first a marine accord was composed – imagined as a salt vapour. To create an even more realistic coastal note, the absolute of Seaweed and the absolute of Cypress were layered, balancing the tempestuous heart of the fragrance and also bringing a touch of green that evokes Britanny. On the skin, the breeze gives way to an addictive softness…the storm outside progressively becomes a comforting murmur as we take in the air of Brittany.
Top: Bergamot, Citrus
Middle: Calone, Neroli
Base: Cypress, Ambergris, Cedarwood, Seaweed
HOW IT WEARS
Un Air Bretagne has a soft aquatic scent on the skin with elements of wood and earth coming through. The Seaweed note is prominent and creates such a wonderfully unusual tone to this scent,
slightly salty, herbaceous and fresh. There is a wonderful depth in the base which gives this scent lasting power of around 8 hours.
We love the thoughtful and purposeful use of every note in this fragrance. It takes us to a wonderful hot air balloon ride, high up over the green fields, making its way to the rugged coastline. The fresh, clean, salty air fusing with the open aromatic fields below. There is a wonderful blend of wild plants and herbs with the sea notes that whisk us away to a beautiful rustic place where the sea meets the mountains.
