Sienne l'Hiver

Bertrand Duchaufour

for Eau D' Italie


Gernaium, Violet, Fern, Iris, White Truffle, Olibanum, Hay, Labdanum & Gaiac Wood.  A highly unusual, evocative and fugitive perfume that balances transparency and weight with equal skill.


A truly unique evocation of place and season. Duchaufour has managed to evoke the very sense of a season in transition with floral and vegetal elements suspended at the exquisite moment of transformation from Autumnal decay to the fortifications of a Mediterranean winter. Mysterious and uplifting by turns.
