Atelier D’Orient Fragrances
ATELIER D’ORIENT FLEUR DE CHINE
For Fleur de Chine, I imagined the romantic and mysterious women from Asia’s cinematic past – from the ’30s femme fatale in a cheongsam and dark lipstick, to the ’60s Hong Kong heroine of In the Mood for Love [….] I wanted to capture that fascinating, exquisite and slightly scandalous femininity – Tom Ford.
This is a floreal, romantic and charming fragrance with an accento to great fragrances from the past. It evokes a sophisticated athmosphere which evolves in a sumptuous magnificence. Precious asiatic flowers such as HuaLan flower and star magnolia. Then we have the elegant freshness of clementine and bergamot smoothed by hyacinth. Really oriental treasures as jasmine tea, syringa, plum, tea rose are balanced by lilac, white peach and peony. This refined and perfect blend gives great persistence to this fragrance which is enriched by hinoki, Chinese cedarwood, amber, Laotian benzoin, styrax and vetiver.
