B683

B683 is a result of the meeting of two young designers. One is a couturier, the other a perfumer. Their childhood memories brought them together. Remembering captivating smells; of the leather from an elegant attaché case or an immaculate desk blotter; distinct smells of wood during the regular gathering of fuel to warm the family home. The artistic skills of the former and the olfactory talent of the latter together sparked a magical and pleasant fragrance with its notes of spices, leather and wood.

B683 Extrait

B683 Extrait – with this reinterpretation, the two creators offer a dive into the most sensual character of B683, an immersion at the heart of this perfume and its signature: the warmth and the depth of a woody-leathery accord. Here, it gains another intensity to become an authentic “patchouli leather.” Around that, other notes of the composition sublimate the different facets of this matter with tactile sensuality. Pepper and cumin offer the vibration of their spicy accents, the oud wood enhances the density of then accord while the vanilla brightens it with a caressing roundness. On the skin, B683 Extrait marries the one who wears it as a double that underlines its presence.

The top note is spicy and liquorish with pepper berries essence, cumin seeds and green apple. The heart is really animalic and leathery. Made with safraleine, violet leaf and natural oud from Laos (ethically sourced). The base is warm and woody and concentrating the smell of patchouli from Indonesia, sandalwood from Australia and vanilla.

Encelade

Encelade represents the shadow-light relationship within a perfume which plays its paradoxes with delight. The Main accord of rhubarb, cedar and vetiver express the smell of Earth, sap, lush nature. Green and woody notes which comes to mingle with the crash of smoked and animal leather. Milky sandalwood and tonka bean add sensuality and addiction to the skin.
Pure seduction of a perfume conveying a wild magnetism

Ganymede

Ganymede once again makes use of the suede-leathery notes that made their first collaboration B683 an instant classic. This time though the leather notes become softer, gaining lightness and gentleness in contact with the fragrance of violet. Mandarin still brings intense brightness and vivacity, yet immortelle adds sublime balance, using salty and mineralic tones to act as a striking counterpoint. A galactic olfactory harmony both delicate and balanced, full of energy, sensuality and contrast, Ganymede is quite unlike any fragrance on the planet; or elsewhere.

Ganymede Extrait

Ganymede Extrait name is inspired by Jupiter’s immense satellite, which is also known to be full of craters and to have an underground ocean vaster than all of earth’s oceans put together. The perfume’s creators, Marc-Antoine Barrois and Quentin Bisch, have imagined it here in a world with an atmosphere brimming with aromatics that it becomes combustible: its sky is gleaming with the sour spike of mandarin and the holy fumaroles of incense and myrrh. It’s a planet covered with warm velvet dunes where the spicy and caramelised everlasting flower is preponderant. The fiery heart of this fragrance reminds us that the gods gave Ganymede eternal life so that his beauty would never fade. Is it the smouldering skin hidden underneath the wild leather? This precious perfume extract is as much a sophisticated perfume as a carnal one.

Ganymede Extrait unfolds in its dizzying trail the seduction of great Classics.

The sound of the waves from far away. The wind is sweeping a field of everlasting flowers. The sun heats the spicy, almost syrupy scent of these yellow flowers. The waves are caressing the dune.

The wind picks up the sand into warm, leathery, heady gusts of incense and myrrh. Grains of sand are twirling, incandescent. The rock is flushing, the Akigalawood and Mandarin bring minerals and freshness. The air becomes… captivating.
