    Default New Artisan parfumeur - Sville l'aube

    This new fragrance will be released from July 2012 and it's another orange blossom scent (don't know if it's Duchaufour).

    I smelled it once time, the start is a little bit hesperidic (cardamom is officialy listed) then it's a nice neroli/jasmine with a little bit of vanilia/amber in the base (but just what it needs);
    a nice alternative of the regretable "fleur d'oranger 2007", not so pure and beautiful but it still worth the snif !

    Being an orange blossom fan, I will give it a try. Thanks for the pre-alert.

    What does the name mean (in English)?

    Your description, Mon-Petit, sounds like Aqua Allegoria Flora Nerolia by Guerlain.

    "Seville at Dawn" is how I read it. L'Aube = (the) dawn.

    Duchaufour, is indeed, the nose for this fragrance. A scent that was actually inspired by Denyse from the blog, Grain de Musc. Story here: http://graindemusc.blogspot.com/2012...ube-story.html

    Extremely cool! Amazon.com is taking sign-ups to be alerted when her book becomes available in the US. And I put in a request for creation of a Kindle edition while I was at it (which would get it out sooner in America, too). I will definitely look into the book / fragrance pair. I'm a total sucker for this sort of thing!

    Me too - I follow Grain de Musc and have been looking forward to this book. A perfume with a story, a story with a perfume, nice.

    I tested it on skin at the Bordeaux shop of l'AP yesterday, and I immediately fell for it. Very fine orange blossom, kind of green with some jasmine. It's an EdP, soft and delicate, but has a quite decent lasting power. Available in France at the end of July, I think I'll get it.

    Yes, too bad it's a limited edition.
    Enjoy it, Mon-Petit, you're one of the few wearing Sville, but I predict that by the end of July, there will be MANY !

    Thank you I'm fully enjoying it, for sure it's my best new summer scent this year.

    Hope it will be soon available because it's beautiful in this season (heard a rumor for a september release )

    Sville l'aube will be released at the end of July, at least in France, but other countries may have to wait until September.

    Thank goodness that I'm spending my holidays in France, next month!
    Denyse in person gave me a tiny squirt of it (and a mouillette that I jealously keep in my copy of The Perfume Lover) at Exsence, in Milan, last spring and I find it beautiful and addictive! My only concern is the size of the bottle- only 100 ml, they say- I definitely prefer smaller sizes!

    I read the book about a month ago. I really enjoyed it! I haven't smelled the fragrance yet, but I must, having read the story.

    I'm doing a preview sample draw of Sville l'aube on Grain de Musc for people who've bought "The Perfume Lover"... http://bit.ly/Ldkn1E

    And Bertrand Duchaufour and myself will be in London on July 24/25 to present the fragrance in L'Artisan Parfumeur's Covent Garden Market boutique. As space is limited, it's best to contact the boutique to book: we're having two sessions on the evening of the 24th and three more in the afternoon of the 25th. I hope to see you there!

    105 € for a 100 ml bottle... Ouch
    It's more expensive than the other AP fragrances for the same countenance, if I'm not mistaken; besides most (if not all) of the AP fragrances exist in the 50ml format.
    Some will think about it twice before shelling out so much money, and that's probably what they want, make it exclusive, limited edition, etc. They know it will be a success anyway.

    It's a beautiful fragrance, dominated by orange blossom. It opens zesty, bitter and green. It develops darker on the skin, but I did expect it to be more heavy. It's not very sweet, but it feels spicy and roundes by the beeswax and tobacco etc. It really has character and depth, and definitely different from other orange blossoms. Perfect for hot summer nights. The contrast between white orange flowers and the dark mystery is interesting. It's a quite sensual fragrance The staying power isn't to good on my skin, as always with L'Artisan.

    Just tried it. Foody mess.

    Nothing really stands out in it -- flat, one-dimensional, derivative (Bois Farine and Timbuktu, mostly) on this skin. Nothing much of orange blossom, none of the lavender at all, the sharp and persistent beginning reminded me strongly of mint-licorice, but overall development was boring boring boring. Vanilla-like benzoin added warmth not depth, but was it really necessary for a fragrance to represent a cool start of a hot day?

    Will not recommend. 2**.

    Thanks to a nice BN friend who let me try it.
