Introducing Perfume 102: Tea Infusion with Cardamom and Grasse Mimosa
Experience a kaleidoscope of hues with Bon Parfumeur's Perfume 102, a symphony of scents that awakens the senses. Like a burst of colours, it commences with a vibrant blend of sparkling bergamot, aromatic coriander, and invigorating cardamom. This skillful amalgamation ingeniously captures the essence of green tea, crafting a fragrance that is both refreshing and enchanting.
At its heart, the fragrant mimosa of Grasse takes center stage, accompanied by a delicate powdery jasmine. These floral notes intertwine to create an alluring bouquet as if strolling through a sunlit garden. Anchoring the composition, the background exudes warmth through the harmonious fusion of musky undertones and the earthy richness of oakmoss.
The olfactory journey unfolds in three distinct phases:
- Bergamot: A vivacious note reminiscent of Earl Grey tea, with hints of floral splendour.
- Coriander: Infused with the green zest of oranges, offering a refreshing aromatic experience.
- Cardamom: Embracing its spicy and fresh character, evoking memories of Indian tea.
- Jasmine: Delicate white blossoms with fruity undertones, evoking elegance and grace.
- Tea: A floral and watery infusion, capturing the essence of a serene tea garden.
- Mimosa: Powdery and bright, encapsulating the delicate beauty of mimosa blooms.
- Oakmoss: Woody and reminiscent of lush undergrowth, grounding the fragrance.
- Musk: Soft, comforting, and akin to the embrace of cottony clouds.
- Violet Leaves: Green and earthy, with a subtle hint of cucumber freshness.
As the scent evolves over time, the top notes gracefully give way to the enduring heart notes, which linger for hours before the base notes emerge, leaving a lasting impression that can even span several days.
Exploring the Floral family, Perfume 102 belongs to a lineage of fragrances featuring floral scents such as rose, jasmine, mimosa, and tiare flower. These multi-faceted and refined creations encompass a spectrum from soft and fresh to sensual and intense, always with an intriguing twist.
The heart of this composition is the green tea note, meticulously crafted by the perfumer. It infuses the fragrance with a remarkable freshness, achieved through a meticulous blend of ingredients that conjure the essence of tea leaves.
