– LALIQUE NOIR PREMIER OR INTEMPOREL: https://www.so-avant-garde.com/collections/lalique-shared-noir-premier-collection/products/noir-premier-or-intemporel-edp

1888 represents the date of birth of the house of Lalique. The day when René Lalique registered his hallmark, made up of his initials and a stylized sword, to be stamped on the gold designs produced by his studio.

With Or Intemporel, Lalique offers its olfactory interpretation of the precious metal… Two deliciously addictive main notes, tobacco and coffee, blend to conjure both the opulence of gold and the fascination it has always held for mankind. The intense, unusual accord is textured with hot and cool spices (cardamom, nutmeg, black pepper) which expresses the contrast between the sunny glow of gold and the metal’s coldness. Vanilla and tolu balsam, bolstered with a dash of patchouli, add rich, tender golden hues to the dusky palette.

This should be a series.

Senior JP says:

I agree with Mountain Man. Please do a series and make these kind of videos about all categories of the fragrance wheel. There are too little educational videos in the fragrance community IMO.
