La Fumée Collection is a vaporous and atmospheric exploration of incense, the beautiful phantom soul of perfume. It echoes the literal meaning of perfume, per fumum, taken from the Latin, meaning through smoke, offering up aromatic prayers, love, yearnings, litanies and fears to the gods above. Precious words spiralling skyward wrapped in precious tendrils of scented haze. English perfumer Lyn Harris created an intense incense collection of luminous miasma, inspired by this most sacred and ancient of olfactive experiences. Emotive incense, resins, aromatic woods, balms, roses and spices travel through time from sacrificial altar via perfumer’s palette to our skin, fumes continuing to rise and rise like contemplative prayers to skies, senses and memory.
La Fumée Alexandrie
A ballad to Alexander the Great's Mediterranean city
The breeze carries a striking and mysterious rose, with playful elements of sweet mandarin and lychee, juxtaposed by an intense and spicy oud. Cinnamon and cumin with their pronounced character face off with the leathery dryness of papyrus and creamy sandalwood. A memory of a powerful and spectacular civilisation.
