The brutal yet tender collision of rose and patchouli
Voleur de Roses was composed by Michel Almairac and captures the chaos of a rose garden shattered by a thunderstorm. Rain and the smell of lightening in the air, wet earth, broken stems, bruised petals giving up a spicy crushed scent into the air. Roses stolen, ripped back by nature, this is an unexpected rose scent, a collision of roses and patchouli. Regal and brutal, tender and long lasting.
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.....
