Fleur de Pivoine & Bois de Cyprès
Fusion of materials
November 8, 2023
Since 2017, the Les Parfums Matières collection by KARL LAGERFELD created a close link between fashion and perfumery.
New for 2023, the Parfums Matières collection by KARL LAGERFELD now welcomes the Fleur de Pivoine & Bois de Cyprès duo: a bespoke blend of subtly contrasting floral freshness for her, and a stylised aromatic fougere for him.
Subtle, delicate peony
This fruity floral eau de parfum, designed by perfumer Emilie Coppermann, immediately evokes a subtle elegance. The top notes of mandarin and redcurrant blend with green notes to distil their freshness, introducing the luminous femininity of a bouquet of white flowers combining jasmine, peony and lily of the valley
Warmed by a trio of soft woods (white cedarwood, whipped-cream musk and amber), Fleur de Pivoine indelibly stamps its sweetness onto the skin.
Bois de Cyprès, a masculine classic reinvented
Perfumer Alexandra Carlin revisits this iconic accord in men’s perfumery, adding an original touch of aromatic fern. The invigorating vivaciousness of the trio of top notes – frosted cardamom, Madagascan mandarin and lemon – lead into the composition’s star note: cypress, studded with lavender and aquatic mint. In the base notes, clary sage absolute, cashmere wood and vetiver wrap the composition in a powerful, enveloping trail.
Once again, and in line with Karl Lagerfeld’s Parfums Matières collection, materials are sublimated to transform the iconic ingredients of perfumery into unique fragrances.
