The L’Automne and L’Hiver candles are said to "transport you to the Grasse back-country, creating a warm and cosy atmosphere for your home, redolent of the seasons". The candles are housed in a handmade vessel created by ceramic masters, based in the Chaozhou region of China.
The company are also producing gloves scented with Mûre et Musc Extrême. The history of perfume has ties with glove making, as the company explain:
L’Artisan Parfumeur has worked in collaboration with renowned glove-maker, Causse, to fuse the savoir-faire of the perfumer with that of the glove-maker. This novel partnership references the origins of perfumery, when perfumers were also tanners, working to conceal the odours of the tan yards. In Autumn 2012, L’Artisan Parfumeur revisits this near-forgotten tradition, with its scented leather gloves: marrying heritage and modernity.
To ensure the scent of the fragrance was faithful L’Artisan Parfumeur created a perfume concentrate specifically for the perfuming of the gloves. The process of ‘scenting’ the leather was developed after extensive research by L’Artisan Parfumeur. The leather (the ‘raw skin’) is soaked for four hours in a very specific mixture of nourishing oils and the specially-developed Mûre et Musc Extrême concentrate. This process softens and scents the leather. The leather is then removed from the mixture and placed in a special drying-room, to be left to dry overnight. The mixture of oils and the Mûre et Musc Extrême concentrate results in the leather of the gloves being elegantly perfumed for around three years. The gloves can also be re- scented using the Eau de Parfum Mûre et Musc Extrême, without staining the leather.
The candles will be available from October in L’Artisan Parfumeur boutiques, concessions and website. 200g (60 hours burn time) for €55; and 1.5kg (over 100 hours burn time) for €220. The gloves will be in a limited edition of 100 pairs at selected L'Artisan boutiques for €320.
