Nestled between the Rhône and the Mediterranean sea, Provence is a land of water where springs are sacred and their outpouring providential.
The best example is the origin of Marseille, which never would have existed if the beautiful Gyptis had not offered a cup of water to Protis, thus designating him as her future husband. Protis was the leader of the Greek colonists from Phocaea and Gyptis was the daughter of the king of Ligures, the tribe that then occupied lower Provence.

"The vibrations of those feelings set in motion by the lovely Provencal sun have not completely died out for us (...), the horizons, landscapes and incredible outlines that have left so many deep impressions upon us." - Cezanne, Impressionist painter.
Provence is the land of inspiration, suspended between water and earth, between earth and sun. It is the place of experimentation for all artists and all sensitivities. It has vast fields of lavender, olive trees stretching to the horizon, ocher earth battered by the wind. Each step is a search for light, each breath an olfactory vibration. It was with humility and in the footsteps of all those who found their strength here that I wanted to be the artist of scent, vibrating from my encounter with this empire of sun. Thus, this cologne showcases lavender, lemon and bergamot, with amber highlights of cinnamon, incense and benzoin. It is a sensual, woodsy promise. This is what the sun turned it into...

A Cologne that the sun promises to blush.
Lavender, lemon and bergamot are showcased with ambery notes (Cinnamon / Incense / Cistus Labdanum / benzoin) .
This rests gently on a sensual and woody base - grey Amber / Tonka / Cedar / Ambroxan.
This perfuming composition contains numerous ingredients of natural origin:
as head notes, the essentiel oils of lemon bergamot and bitter orange peel;
in the heart notes, the essential oils of Lavender and Guaiacwood;
in the base notes, the cedar wood oil and the resinoids of incense and benzoin.
Because the alchemy of perfume with the skin is unique, fragrance must be worn to be revealed.
Try it on the inside of the wrists, the neck or behind the ears.
Also spray your perfume on your clothes : on a lapel of vest, a shirt collar or a skirt hem. Natural materials like wool and cashmere will reveal all.
External use only. Flammable. Do not use near open flames. Do not spray in eyes.
