Last year, French niche label L'Artisan Parfumeur launched a new opus in their "Les Paysages" (Landscapes) collection called Le Chant de Camargue (The Song of The Camargue), a scent which takes inspiration from its rice fields and saline air...
The region travelled includes Aigues-Mortes, Arles and Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer.
Master-Perfumer Alberto Morillas of Firmenich signs the composition, a creamy, powdery eau de parfum with an addictive edge resting on the additional interpretation of a dessert-y milky rice. He explained,
"I imagined an ode to a "white gold" - the rice from the Camargue - whose powdery and floral notes are associated with the creaminess of a sandalwood-milk accord and the freshness of bergamot."
The fragrance has top notes of bergamot essence and Hédione, with a heart featuring a"Camargue rice" accord and Paradisone, with finally, base notes of sandalwood milk and Ambrox.
Anyone interested in procuring a good musk ought to give it a try. While not explicitly advertized as a musky scent, it leaves a lasting impression as such. We would include it in a list of best musk perfumes without hesitation.
Les Paysages Français
In 2020, L'Artisan Parfumeur is calling renewed attention to it with a showcasing of their, so far, four library scents dedicated to the olfactive capturing of French landscapes, as the French are spending their summer in the year of Covid-19 preferrably in France. For all, it is an opportunity to travel in imagination thanks to perfume.
