Au Crépuscule de Lavande {In the Lavender Twilight}

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)


A candied fougere retro nouveau perfume:  sweet and delicious lavender mixed with dense, golden, resinous immortelle, myrrh, and tonka bean.  The aldehydes and blackberry top notes make this unlike the aromatherapy lavender versions we are all so familiar with.  Instead it’s a beautiful perfume filled with a deeply felt medicine for the soul… it’s joyful and restful at the same time.



“It’s like elegant comfort food” — so gorgeous


About This Product

“The fluffy, pink and lavender colored clouds of twilight… and the beautiful saturation of everything as the light dims and fades to darkness.  I want to bottle it so that I can feel it all of the time”.   This is the grand inspiration of Au Crépuscule de Lavande: to put in a bottle that dreamlike feeling I get experiencing twilight.

I also wanted to create a new way of experiencing lavender from so many of the ways that it seems to be presented; whether it is an aromatherapy design or a more classical fougere, lavender is usually a bit terpenic, medicinal, and / or essentially grassy in its feel.  Instead, I wanted a full blown retro nouveau perfume that has vintage-y elements and an immense elegance.  It should smell of lavender but not make you think “lavender” in the usual way.

What came out of this exploration was ultimately, perhaps, post-modern; a mash-up of the new gourmand style with the vintage leanings of fougere.   Au Crépuscule de Lavande is a candied fougere with sweet, savory, almost bakery-like elements with aldehydes, fruit nuances, and flowers.  I think it’s magical.  I hope that you will, too.

    This is one kickass fougere. It is definitely not your grandparents lavender, and yet it smells like it could have been released near the beginning of the 20th century. It’s all warm amber and Tonka and myrrh and tobacco with a definite scent of lavender. I have never smelled anything like it. Though it definitely has a vintage feel, it’s totally modern. I think that this was how people probably felt when Tabac Blond or En Avion were introduced. Au Crepuscule De Lavande has the same warm depth and vintage quality of the classics but somehow it is presented in an entirely new and adventurous way. It is a unisex scent that would be amazing on men or women. I’ve tried both the EDP and the pure perfume version. I love both of them but the perfume lasts longer than any other of the DHS perfumes I’ve tried. My skin basically eats perfume and it lasted on me close to 24 hours. Because this perfume is so original, I would recommend buying a sample before a whole bottle. You may end up hating it : it’s very different and distinctive. But love it or hate it, I think everyone should try it.
