    Default Mystery fragrance Jean Laporte L'Artisan Parfumeur Jaune

    I'm trying to gather any information you experts may have on this fragrance I've picked up about which I've never read anything. I thought I'd heard of them all, but this has me stumped. L'Artisan Parfumeur Jaune.

    Can you make out the spelling above and to the right and left of "produit" ?

    I tried looking in the Perfume Intelligence Database Website, but no luck.

    It smells pretty good! It seems like a precursor to Mimosa pour Moi, with prominent Acacia Farnesiana and lemon. Jaune, meaning yellow, seems apt.

    Just out of curiosity if you don't mind my asking, how did you come upon this rare find?

    It appeared on eBay. It was from a reseller so I couldn't get much info directly. The bottle shape has been confirmed as L'Artisan.

    Have you contacted L'Artisan to see what info they may have on file about it?
    Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.
    Big list of niche splits.

    The suggestion to contact the company is an intriguing one. I know they have brought back discontinued fragrances before. I'm not sure how I would initiate contact.
