Bon Parfumeur 101-30ml


Minuit Deux is thrilled to present unisex perfume brand Bon Parfumeur Paris.

101 use the rose and the musk, a subtle mix of floral and powder scents for a sensual yet tender result. A rose perfume made of Damask rose absolute and essence with fresh and floral notes. The Damask rose is a fresh and noble rose, sometimes referred as the queen of roses, that was chosen to develop our n°101 rose perfume.
Our perfumer Alexandra Monet added a green and spicy touch with cardamome as a top note. The heart of our rose perfume is made of sweet pea and muguet harmony to light up a floral scent. The base note of our rose perfume contains musk and white cedar for a sweet and powdery feeling. At the end, the patchouli brings some character to our rose perfume.

What’s a rose essence and a rose absolute?
The essence of rose is obtained by distillation. We use an alembic to transform rose buds into aromatic molecules through water steam. At the end of the process the essence of rose is collected from the steam, drop per drop.
The rose absolute is obtained by solvent extraction. The rose buds are soaked in an organic solvent that will evaporate the aromatic molecules. The evaporation will create a sort of compact dough that contains all the interesting parts of the plant. This substance will then be turned into a liquid by adding alcohol. A filtration is finally necessary to obtain the absolute of rose.

Did you know?
You need approximatively 5 tons of roses to make 1kg of rose essence when only 400kg of roses are necessary to obtain 1kg of rose absolute. Therefore the rose essence is rare and precious. The smell of the rose essence is also fresh and citrusy and is way more intense than the smell of rose absolute.

What’s an harmony?
An harmony consists of matching two or several raw materials together. Perfumes are usually made of different harmony. At Bon Parfumeur all our harmony are unique and made in France by our perfumers. Even though we use raw materials from all around the world our perfumes are 100% made in France.

What’s a Chypre harmony?
Funded in 1917 by Francois Coty, the Chypre by Coty became an emblematic harmony thanks to its success. It refers to a perfume family based on the following harmony: bergamot, oak moss, patchouli and white musk. Our rose perfume n°101 was inspired by this harmony. We modernized it by only using oak moss and patchouli. The result is subtle and creates a tender smell that feels very comfortable, like cashmere on the skin. Our rose perfume n°101 is very well suited for men and women that like roses smell.
