N° 4 Extrait de Parfum


The Inspiration

A classic perfume is one that transcends temporal trends and temporary tastes; perpetually in style. N° 4 is modeled after traditional scents, but with a few modern twists. I use an ingredient that I don't usually use in this style of perfume: Tunisian Neroli. Neroli, which comes from the flowers of the bitter orange tree, was a key component in scents from times gone by and was one of the first ingredients used in Western perfumes. I use Jasmine Grandiflorum absolute for a full and intense olfactory impression, which was once one of the most popular types of flower extract in perfumes but now is often synthetically reconstructed. Amber, which is an accord of numerous resins, and Mexican Vanilla contrast intensely with the top and middle notes of Tunisian Neroli and Jasmine Grandiflorum. The transition between the brightness of  the florals and warmth of the resins is particularly intriguing with the presence of Neroli.


The Composition

Tunisian Neroli and Jasmine Grandiflorum fuse together to provide a distinctive and vibrant floralcy that later transitions into a calmer and warm blend of Mexican Vanilla and Amber, meticulously balancing old-world opulence with contemporary elegance.
