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 Intense
Eau de Parfum Inspired by the entrancing ritual of burning incense and wood chips.
Sitting atop a bakhoor burner, precious incense burns with rambling and undulating intensity. A contrast of fresh French lavender with Somalian frankincense. The unexpected fresh character of elemi is amplified by a camphoraceous whisper of cardamom. A blend of cool spices, geranium and chamomile fuel the fire.
