An exciting transparent fragrance that combines mineral and animalic notes, which is not an easy thing to do. Pierre Guillaume evokes the combination of hot stones, the animal notes of warm bodies, the scent of cistus rose and the mineral of sea air. He succeeded beautifully!
The inspiration for Limanakia is a beach of the same name in Greece: "On the coast of the Aegean Sea, you need to watch your step as you climb the steep paths that lead to a series of burning, rocky beaches and mineral alcoves edged in rockrose bushes: the perfect place for trysts - Limanakia.
Review Ca Fleure Bon: "The tightrope balance of Limanakia, its interplay between heat and chill, between mineral and arboreal, and its uncanny ability to recall the Greek shoreline without any use of calone, is a hallmark of Pierre Guillaume’s wizardry as a perfumer."

Pierre Guillaume Paris
Formerly known as Parfumerie Generale.
Pierre Guillaume's creations all have a strong identity and signature. He does not compromise and is totally independent, working from his atelier in Clermont-Ferrand. On the other hand, his fragrances never become too intellectual or avant-garde, and they are always very wearable.
One of the innovative techniques Pierre uses in his creations, is a process called Photo-affinage or photo refining, the flattening of olfactory peaks through ultra-violet rays. This technique gives his fragrances that characteristic liveliness in Cozé or that melancholic touch in L'Eau Circé for instance.
