Annick Goutal have released a fourth perfume in their new collection Les Orientalistes. After Ambre Fétiche, Myrrhe Ardente, and Encens Flamboyant, the new fragrance is and ode to yet another mystical and sensual ingredient from the East, musk, and is called Musc Nomade.
The scent derives its inspiration from Camille Goutal and Isabelle Doyen's impressions of the substance as they inhaled it from the hair of Qatar princesses who are customers of theirs, as they are in the habit of perfuming themselves with a blend of musk powder, rose essence, mixed with lingering traces of oud burned to scent their interiors.....
Musc Nomade is based on both vegetal and recreated musks only. It features a synthetically reconstructed Muscone, white musks, one of them originating from Angelica root, ambrette seed, tonka bean, labdanum, and Bombay wood, a varietal of papyrus.
The composition is described as being both luminous and dark, carnal and pure, soft and furry.
The 100 ml Eau de Parfum is priced at 120 €. The 150 ml body cream retails for 45 € and the 150 ml shower gel for 25 €.
