Coze Eau De Toilette by Parfumerie Generale at The Perfume Shoppe. Silhouette: True alternatives to all those mass market products, with their bland, standardized formats aimed at winning over vast numbers of consumers, Pierre Guillaume’s creations exhale their strong character with distinct and immediately recognizable scent identities that make no compromises. The bold and inventive Pierre Guillaume style is further enhanced in each Parfumerie Generale creation by technical prowess inspired by his background in fine chemistry: a captive ingredient, or one that is totally new, or a unique production process specific to each fragrance. By exploring new process such as "photo-affinage" (photo-refining or smoothing olfactory peaks by ultraviolet radiation), his creations are imprinted with a "vibrant" or "melancholic" feel. Because luxury is not a question of excessively using an ingredient and because the quest for uniqueness should not result in overly intellectual fragrances that are impossible to wear, and since contemporariness and provocation do not necessarily go hand in hand, Pierre Guillaume does not merely try to create scents but also emotions as a reminder of how intimate the bond between a person and their perfume is. Coze opens with Canapa Sativa (hemp) pepper and pimento with a delicate sweetness of chocolate and an infusion of Bourbon vanilla pods surrounded with precious woods!
