Pierre Guillaume has added a new fragrance to his Numbered collection inspired by tree mosses. It is called Alphaora 30 and is composed of blood orange, albizia blossom, hinoki sap, and Assam moss among others.
The name: “A portmanteau word, invented, in the purest PG style. First work (alpha) on the theme “Glam’moss”, the quest for a perfume-aura (ora), tenacious and ultra diffusing, where the Mousse of Assam matches the blood orange (ora).”
Alphaora 30 New By Pierre Guillaume Paris
“Like luminous creatures undulating in the icy sky, the Northern Lights set the polar nights ablaze… Daughters of the solar winds and the Earth’s magnetic field, their ethereal glow gives lichen, moss and snowy vegetation an extraterrestrial aura… Seize this moment, imagine a tree moss metamorphosed by the strange glow of the Northern Lights.”
Pierre Guillaume Paris Alphaora 30
“An imaginary tree moss as complex as it is deep, revealing an amber warmth between sage, dried fruit and blond tobacco. The sweet sap of Hinoki Wood, the strange floral vapor of an albizia under the sun crowned by the brightness of the blood orange”.
Pierre Guillaume never makes a secret of the technical details of his work, and I really appreciate it – it is always entertaining and enlightening:
“The structure of Alphaora is modelled on the architecture of Sucre d’ébène (2010): a floral heart dominated by an overdose of Hedione confers diffusion and volume to a woody-sweet accord, refreshed with citrus and gently spicy notes.
While Sucre d’ébène rests on a massive base of musk infused with balsamic notes, Alphaora blossoms in a vapor of ambergris, acting like a magnifying glass on Assam Moss accord: an imaginary tree moss with hints of dried fruit and blond tobacco”.
Alphaora 30 is available in 50 and 100 ml from the official website of Pierre Guillaume.
