Aphélie by Trudon Parfums
15ml Travel Size Eau de Parfum
Olfactive Family – Green
Perfume Author – Pauline Deltour
Aphélie stands out in a unique manner; like an aphelion – the orbital point at which a celestial object is furthest from the sun – she lights up. Mysterious, Aphélie is connected to the cosmos: subject to the laws of attraction, she makes one with nature. A feminine character in chiaroscuro, she ties together infinite wilderness with the ephemeral nature of the human condition.

Heart Notes – Blackcurrant bud, moss
Base Notes – Sandalwood, Tonka bean
Simply named TRUDON, the new perfume line still claims references to religion, royalty and revolution. And yet breaks free from them. Three highly praised perfumers – Lyn Harris, Antoine Lie and Yann Vasnier – infuse the Trudon 1643 collection with rich historical notes that are meaningful today. They composed five contemporary chapters: in each one, noble, natural ingredients take centre stage. Neither feminine nor masculine, the perfumes contain an olfactory complexity that hints at a character rather than a gender.
It is part of Cire Trudon’s ethos to collaborate with different talents, promote creative freedom and showcase different expertise. Handpicking three perfumers was therefore a deliberate choice and despite each perfumer’s singular approach, a strong statement runs through this first collection of Trudon 1643. Individually given a brief, each nose was taken to a Parisian landmark; chosen for its evocative meaning; each venue catalysed singular ideas and sources of inspiration.
