The artisanal perfume makers Fitzgerald & Guislain employ time-honoured techniques and ingredients of the utmost quality to create fragrances inspired by the Victorian era, but modern in vision. This 15ml/0.5oz extrait de parfum of Prunier a Minuit is a nod to the Orientalism of the early 20th century, filled with plum, tuberose, & jasmine note atop a dry base of incense and amber. It is presented in a a classic crystal splash flacon within a hand-cut wooden box. Stunning.
Prunier aims to capture the joy of a midnight tipple in a moonlit Chinese forest. True to the theme of imbibing, the combination of plum and a rich white floral heart of tuberose and jasmine give the fragrance a distinctly boozy characteristic. However, the fragrance avoids the risk of veering into the territory of cloyingly sweet fruit liqueurs by balancing its sweet top and heart with a dry, incense base dominated by hydrocarboresine (a natural amber material created by a fractional distillation of cistus resin). Notes: tobacco, rose, peach, jasmin sambac, tuberose, ambergris, sandal, vanilla, balsam for, incense.
