The fragrance for both the gloves and candle is said to blend notes of velvety suede, leathery jatamansi, amber, woody musk, patchouli and cedar wood in order to replicate the scent found at the workshops located in Millau. Le Monde mention a system of scented capsules while Vogue mention perfumed talc to refresh the fragrance of the gloves.
Gloves start at 190€. The candle is priced at 45€.
