En Aparte Outrecuidant comes from the old French ‘cuidance’ evolving from the Latin ‘cogitare’:  to think and ‘outre’ beyond, too much.

In a great shimmer, Grapefruit and Pineapple provoke verbal jousting with the burst of a high and pretentious Orange Blossom. In reaction to Saffron and Cardamom’s retort. The response to Labdanum’s woody, resinous nature is intensified once Leather arrives on the scene. In the end, Oud, who is roused by Patchouli, also accepts his arrogance.

Head Notes – Ginger, Nutmeg, Cardamom
Heart Notes – Rose, Olibanum
Base Notes – Oud, Tobacco, Patchouli

Histoires de Parfums is an olfactive library that is all about telling stories of famous characters, raw materials and mythical years. The collection created by Gérald Ghislain, is governed by no rules other than inspiration. With his luxuriant imagination, this loquacious individual has chosen to bring these stories to life in perfumes, a sensitive and sensual medium. These fragrances are released  in a Deluxe edition to be read on the skin.

Histoires de Parfums perfumes perpetuate the French perfumery know-how, which features are luxury, nobility and creativity. Histoires de Parfums maintains the highest qualitative standards in the choice of the raw materials as well as in the choice of the bottles, packaging and communication tools. Gérald Ghislain wanted to evoke stories through scent just as books are written with emotion.

When he is creating his perfumes, Gérald interprets in a new way the classic olfactive families by including an unexpected component, to obtain an original and surprising collection.

Our perfumes have a long trail, deep tempered, dense notes and are extremely sensual.
