Ooze 70s Parisian chic, with French Affair, the newest release from Ex Nihilo, ICONOCLASTE collection. Perfumer Quentin Bisch embodies a charming, traditional yet modern Parisian flair, inspired by the new dandies: anti conformist combined with a chic finesse and attitude. With pure and seductive olfactory notes, French Affair opens with notes of crisp and energetic Bergamot and Lychee, which reveals a sweet, magnetic touch of rose absolute and the bite of angelica seeds, before ascending into a base of oakmoss, patchouli and vetiver.
Aerate your bedroom with Ambre Fou, one of five olfactory treasures by French perfumer Olivier Pescheux. Designed to evoke mystery and enigma, this scented candle conjures mesmerizing aromatic notes of amber, bergamot and coriander, later illuminating the room with vanilla and tonka bean as it gradually heats up. Let this be your complete candle this winter as you dream of those warm Parisian nights.
