Boucheron has unveiled a new luxury collection of six fragrances known as Collection La Collection – find out more…
Boucheron new fragrances are gathered together as Collection La Collection, drawing inspiration from historical gem hunters, who “forged the spirit of the Maison with their journeys, bringing back from all over the world a wealth of impressions, images, lights, landscapes, encounters and scents.”
The collection includes six expressions: Néroli d’Ispahan, Tubéreuse De Madras, Oud de Carthage, Ambre D’Alexandrie, Iris de Syracuse and Vanille de Zanzibar. Meet each fragrance below:
An amber eau, fresh and luminous.
The brilliant combination in the top notes of Green Cardamom and Ginger brings an elegant, bursting depth, accentuated by the fresh and peppery facets of Elemi. A powerful trio that reveals the ardent character of the spices.
Infused with the sunny intensity of Neroli, the fragrance reveals a heart of Cistus whose amber and resiny softness is sculpted by the effervescent vigour of Pink Peppercorn.
Lulled by the delicate sensuality of White Musks, this authentic base brings the amber minerality of Ambrox® together with the profoundly woody and warm character of Patchouli Essence.
A white floral tuberose, smooth and sunny.
In the top notes, the rich and delicate petals of Orange Blossom illuminate Violet Leaf, revealing lush nature through its vegetal and fresh facets. Succulent and tangy Passion Fruit completes this olfactory treasure with its glowing colours.
The exoticism of Ylang Ylang and the almond sweetness of Frangipani Flower gives this floral middle a sunny intensity that enhances the spellbinding majesty of a Tuberose Infusion.
The voluptuous fragrance of Vanilla brings comforting fluidity to the base, accentuated by the sensual and addictive trail of Tuberose Absolute. Smooth and comfortable, Sandalwood takes on the bewitching scents of this sacred flower.
Oud de Carthage
An oriental-leathery, rich and powerful.
An extremely rich accord offering three facets as distinct as they are complementary.
The strength of an oriental note with a touch of mystery brought by Incense and Honey.
Magneticism triggered by a blend of Labdanum Absolute and Tonka Bean with sensual and comfortable notes.
The base offers a touch of imposing distinction with two accords: Oud and Leather.
An oriental amber, precious and timeless.
Both sweet and voluptuous, notes of Creamy Vanilla and Benzoin have been coated with a Spirit of Narguile accord, in a surprising, mystical and hypnotising blend.
Cistus resin enhances the Amber accord with its Leathery oriental facets.
For more complexity with an animal touch, the base was created around a bed of Ambergris and carnal Musk, and leaves a remarkable trail.
Iris de Syracuse
A floral iris, vibrant and elegant.
The top note is a subtle vibration. Enhanced with the sparkling freshness of tangy Mandarin, juicy and crunchy Pear is elegantly contrasted with a spicy touch of Black Pepper.
The middle note is a powdery balm. Almost tangible, Iris Concrete evokes a rich and comfortable powder. Like a daydream, Jasmine Petals undulate, free and ethereal, in a sweet illusion of almond blossom embodied by Heliotrope.
The base note evokes mystical sensuality. Enveloped in a mysterious Patchouli veil, Vanilla is both sensual and carnal. White Musks bring infinite softness to this base, like the caress of a feather on the skin.
Vanille de Zanzibar
An oriental vanilla woody, voluptuous and addictive.
With the zesty burst of Mandarin, Jasmine Petals shake elegantly and release a sheer and ethereal floral charm.
Gentle luminosity with a hint of juicy Pear brings modernity and colour to the top notes.
Unsettling and fascinating, the middle notes surrender to the richness of Bourbon Vanilla. The Oriental sensuality of its black pods is combined with the amber and coppery character of Balsam of Peru to enhance its natural power. The creamy floral tones of Heliotrope soften this addictive duo.
The generous trail of White Musks passionately envelops this exotic beauty with an irresistible powdery veil. A carnal intensity, tactile and irrepressible, is supported from below by the woods. Smooth Sandalwood and warm Patchouli wrap up the fragrance with charisma.
Boucheron’s La Collection are available individually as 125 ml Eau de Parfum.
