Rich with Buddhist influence; it tells a different story on every skin
Dzongkha is a rapturous fragrance, inspired by the remote Buddhist mountain kingdom of Bhutan in the eastern Himalayas. After the critical success of Timbuktu, Bertrand Duchaufour once again turned his perfumery skills on faraway lands to focus on the combination of nature and spirituality found in Bhutan. Rich with aromatic influences: temple stones and incense, the sweet aroma of spiced chai tea, the heat of warm leather around fires, the heart of any temple or home in snowbound lands. Vetiver and green papyrus float through soft smoke with touches of peony, lychee and delicate iris. Dzongkha tells a special story on every skin: that of Dzongkha itself, the spiritual language of Bhutan.
L’Artisan Parfumeur is one of the most unique and iconoclastic fragrance houses in the world. We work with imagination, exceptional raw materials and visionary perfumers to forge a distinctive alchemical vision, creating some of the most intriguing, singular and deeply personal scents of recent years.
L’Artisan Parfumeur was founded in Paris in 1976 by perfumer-chemist Jean Laporte and was one of the first of a movement of exclusive niche fragrance houses inspired by nature and a desire to do things a little differently. A combination of classicism, avant-garde fragrance creation, innovative collaborations and an insistence of the highest quality materials has created a body of original, sometimes shocking work. This blending of artisanal fragrance creation and contemporary artistic flair has captured the heart of fragrance aficionados looking for quality, craftsmanship and authenticity.
The iconic Mûre et Musc fragrance was created in 1978. A beautiful blend of blackberry and musk, its success was due to the witty and daring contrast in the structure between sparkling top notes and an enveloping warm evolution of the scent’s seductive development on the skin. The first of its kind on the market, it remains a global bestseller and set the benchmark for L'Artisan Parfumeur creativity. From our Grande Boutique in Paris opposite the Palais du Louvre, L’Artisan Parfumeur has expanded across the world, delighting and intriguing generations of perfume lovers with style, originality and that all important French je ne sais quoi.....
