Mortel Noir by Trudon Parfums
100ml Eau de Parfum
Olfactive Family – Soft Amber
Perfume Author – Yann Vasnier
An intense and spicy perfume, Mortel Noir has the mystical presence of an artist evolving between light and darkness.
Combining a virile force with natural harmonies, Mortel Noir suggests skins heating up against one another: the strength of black pepper from Madagascar blended with incense from Somalia, myrrh and benzoin reveal the erotic spell of pure Cistus.
In a dark attire, Mortel Noir impresses with its matte black bottle and cap: on the label, the sole name of the perfume shines in gold letters.
Equally adorned in hot gold, a drawing by Bastien Coulon runs on the outside of the ink-black box – it features an artist as a mortal creative figure plunging into the abyss.
A more concentrated facet of Mortel’s original formulation: the strength of black pepper from Madagascar blended with incense from Somalia, myrrh and benzoin reveal the erotic spell of pure Cistus.
Scent Profile – Madagascar black pepper | Somalian frankincense | Pure Cistus
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 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.
