Happy, that is definitely a quality of Hapyang, because of the sunny ylang-ylang character which makes it a sparkling floriental. The aldehydes lift the magnolia and ylang-ylang and give her a clean, happy, and sweet powdery heart. The wood of the pear tree, benzoin, and vanilla give the perfume a delicate oriental feel.
Pierre Guillaume was fascinated by a series of photos of a dancer in a cloud of powder by photographer Jeffrey Vanhoutte. This inspired Pierre to capture the aldehydes in a cloud of powder.
Pierre Guillaume on Hapyang: "An explosion of powder and floral sparkles, with an endless trail. A delicate floriental breath, enveloping the skin like a precious veil of shimmering silk."
Perfumer Pierre Guillaume works out a theme every time in this series of numbered perfumes. Theme 15 is Floriental, these are perfumes with many flowers mixed with soft aldehydes and sweet herbs and in the base of the composition exotic resins and musk.

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.
