FRAGRANCE FAMILY: WOODY
Crisp, confident, nonchalant, La Fumée by combines woods, incense and spices with a sprinkling of florals and freshness for a fragrance that is equal parts fierce and feminine.
Despite the name, there are no tobacco notes – opening with Iranian elemi and incense from Yemen, these combine with a deep and sensual heart of Egyptian geranium and cumin, Guatemalan cardamom and coriander seed.
This leads on to more wood – Moroccan cedar, sandalwood from Mysore – with cistus absolute, birch tar and North African cade, all combining into a smouldering ember of incense woods and amber.
