L' Eau de Circe No.05 Eau de Parfum by Parfumerie Generale at The Perfume Shoppe. Silhouette: The legend of Circe, an enchantress in the mythological tale of the Odyssey, greatly inspired the perfumeur : she caused the loss of Ulysses’ companions through her magic spells. L' Eau de Circé is a “magic potion”, captivating and magnetic, it draws its mystery from a precious floral blend of absolute of Damask Rose, Jasmine, Osmanthus, Orchid, Ylang-ylang, White Peach leaves and Tangerine.Sensual and scheming with Patchouli, Wood and Amber, the warm, caressing Honey Balm brings light and delicate sweetnessto the scent. True alternatives to all those mass market products, with their bland, standardised formats aimed at winning over vast numbers of consumers, Pierre Guillaume’s creations exhale their strong character with distinct and immediately recognisable 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 "melancolic" 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. Notes: Damask rose, osmanthus, orchid, white peach leaves, sandalwood, honey balm and amber.
