From BDK Parfums’ Collection Exclusive, where each creation stars the highest quality ingredients available, resulting in the most opulent and compelling of fragrances.

Vanille Leather is an exploration into two of the fragrance world’s boldest and most popular notes – leather and vanilla, creating a luxurious combination. 
Created by a master of modern perfumery, Dominique Ropion, who says of the fragrance: “My intention was to combine the precious vanilla pod with a bouquet of white flowers to slowly reveal its warm and sensual personality. The vanilla is adorned with the sulfurous and slightly honeyed tones of tuberose, then drinks in the powerful sweetness of jasmine and finally melting into the round, carnal notes of orange blossom. To intensify the trail, I chose to work around the notes of oak wood and patchouli.” 

Top:  Pink Peppercorn, Violet Accord
Middle: Tuberose Absolute, Jasmine Absolute, Orange Blossom Absolute 
Base: Vanilla, Patchouli, Oakwood, Leather Accord, Orris, Benzoin

Vanille Leather opens with a warm and creamy tone that has little sparks of light as the pink peppercorn dances through the beginning. The addition of a big hit of creamy white florals takes this fragrance into smooth, and very sensual territory very quickly. The leather note is there but not overly prominent, it creates extra depth in the base which makes this fragrance smell luxurious, and like it must be very, very expensive.

We love that the white florals create such a wonderful extra dimension to this fragrance that we weren’t expecting! They add to the creamy warmth of an expensive-smelling leather note, and ensure that the vanilla never tips into the too-sweet territory; it sits perfectly in the smooth, voluptuous realm. It’s as though you have entered the powder room and walk-in wardrobe of an extremely wealthy person’s house. Your senses are overwhelmed and all you can take in is the smell of luxury leather goods, floral arrangements (because why wouldn’t you have multiple floral arrangements in your wardrobe…), and the soft, powdery sweetness of a vanilla fragrance sprayed earlier in the day. 

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.
