A tribute to a vibrant colourful gemstone

    Azurite is a soft copper mineral produced by weathering of copper ore deposits. It owes its name to its beautiful azure-blue colour, which makes it a very popular and well-known mineral. It has been used by people in many parts of the world for thousands of years as an ore of copper, as a pigment, as a gemstone, and as an ornamental stone.

    The colour of azurite also reminds the deep blue colours of the French Côte d’Azur and all the wonderful scents that blow all over this unique region of France.

    Created in collaboration with perfumer Thomas Fontaine, Ombre Azurite is a floral, ozonic and green fragrance.

    The Composition

    Ombre Azurite produces the same sunny floral aroma as do the gentle trade winds blowing along the rocky coast of the Côte d'Azur. 

    The notes of jasmine and lily perfectly convey a marine sense that blends beautifully with the spicy iodine of the Mediterranean Sea.

    The sensuality of mixing sandalwood with tonka bean caresses the skin like the warmth of the mid-day sun.

    Atlas Cedar is a fragrance for connoisseurs, quite sophisticated and with an exotic character.

    The Composition
    The beginning is green and fruity (with bergamot, tangerine, clementine and rhubarb).
    Then, the heart notes reveal a stream of spices (nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamom).
    At last, the fragrance is evolving towards a woody wake mixed with amber.
    An exotic nature
    The cedar in itself evokes a majestic image; the Atlas magnifies it further still. In defining his fragrance, Jean-Charles Brosseau needed nothing more  than  these  two words. This delicate work, making something so small into such an immense source of joy, could only be accomplished by a perfectionist. Atlas Cedar dares to make this statement in a beautiful bottle.
    "Atlas Cedar" appeals to men who have dabbled in everything only to become jaded by the savors they have experienced, to those who choose with their head alone. This is the birth of another fragrance, delectable and irresistible.
