Benzoin Siam is een hars van grote olfactorische rijkdom die zelden wordt gebruikt als een centraal thema in de parfumerie.
Op basis van zeldzame ingredienten zoals Kampot Pepper, Birmese Tanakha of Laos honing, creeert Pierre Guillaume een licht, glad en fris parfum. Waarbij hij met grote precisie elk facet van de onbewerkte balsem namaakte.
Deze sepia-getinte balsem vermengt Indochine met de glans van platina goud.
Quote from review on Indochine from Olfactorias Travel:
"What becomes very prominent on my skin as the scent develops - and that was somewhat unexpected - is the honey note. Instantly changing the tone of the perfume from dry and spicy to warm, golden and slightly sticky, the honey in Indochine is a major player. What seeps in then, is the dark, deep hum of benzoin and a powdery, milky, creamy smell that has to be the thanaka, I guess. Both help to push the honey from its self-appointed throne and give a wonderful balance to the perfume, smoothing over the difficulties the spices and the honey might have had with one another. They create a uniform softness and warm creaminess that is utterly comforting and makes me want to snuggle in and give in to the temptation of doing absolutely nothing but smell this perfume and be content."
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.
