" The L'Artisan Parfumeur Mon Numéro fragrances will be available in 100 ml, 115€ each. (via press release)

Whilst in London last week, I had the joyous experience of popping along to the L'Artisan Parfumeur store in Covent Garden market. I'd been invited to visit to pick up a goodie bag that amongst other fragranced delights, contained some seeds with which I will be attempting to grow my own...

Two and a half years ago, perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour created ten fragrances. "Sure," you might say, "And he's created another couple of dozen since then. Big deal." The thing is, he only made one bottle of each of these fragrances. L'Artisan Parfumeur put them on the market for $20,000 each....

It's extremely likable, but it's not my favorite of the summer-y L'Artisan fragrances — and I'm so far behind on my buy list that I haven't even bought Vanille Absolument or Traversée du Bosphore yet. For the umptillionth time, I am wishing that L'Artisan still sold everything in 15...

What is it: one 100 ml bottle of L'Artisan Parfumeur Batucada. I wore it lavishly to write a review, plus I made a few samples. It's about 95% full. How do I get it: For a chance to win, leave a comment telling me that you live in the US. Also, please tell us either a) a summer fragrance you...

Few do that like Timbuktu by L'Artisan Parfumeur. It's wild, it's savage, and it's not for everyone! Creator Bertrand Duchaufour, who loves natural, animalic notes, was motivated to make Timbuktu after a voyage to Mali in West Africa. With layers of dark (patchouli, musk, cumin) and light...

Séville à l'Aube is the latest from French niche line L'Artisan Parfumeur. Over the years, I've reviewed a fair number of their fragrances — yes, I'm a fan. This, however, is not a proper review. I've never met blogger Denyse Beaulieu of Grain de Musc, who worked with perfumer Bertrand...

When acquaintances who want to know more about perfume ask me for recommendations, I often suggest a visit to a L'Artisan Parfumeur counter. L'Artisan was the first "niche" fragrance house I ever experienced, back in the 1990s, and it's still one of my favorites. Lately I've been watching with...
