About This Product
We have an innate attraction to shiny things; to gold and it’s luminous quality. We sense it’s precious nature.
Inspired to evoke the imaginary aroma of a Paris goldsmith’s workshop: an ancient place filled with the fragrance of hot metal fused with the woodsmoke of fires to fuel the smelting furnace and a touch of scent from the heavy leather apron that protects the artist at work. Created for Denver Art Museum’s “Brilliant” exhibition of Cartier’s masterpieces of the 20th Century, Fumée d’Or is a fantasy fragrance. This is not a literal experience, but what it should be.
Fumée d’Or brings together some odd ‘bedfellows’ and materials to achieve it’s aim. Among them are birch tar, metallic aldehydes, indolic jasmine, neroli, and a big dose of civet. The result is something unique and delicious.
And like gold for a gem, Fumée d’Or acts as a setting for the ‘gem flowers’ in the Brilliant collection. A pairing or layering of Fumée d’Or with Rubis Rosé, Jacinthe de Sapphir, and even Deco Diamonds will add even more depth and density to each fragrance. Just apply a bit of Fumée d’Or first and then the ‘gem’ fragrance on top to feel the fragrance soar!
