Forget everything you already knew about lavender!
Jovoy revisits a great classic of English perfumery while giving it a new, modern and intriguing twist.
The accord comes from a formula by Oli Marlow and from his meeting with the perfumer Marie Schnirer which opened the door to a new world of raw materials, notably a quality of Javanese Vetiver that enriches the ensemble with a whorl of smoky, earthy notes and a “very original note of hashish”.
The result is a lavender cloaked in the freshness of citrus and the fruity notes of fir balsam, with its tantalisingly soft amaretto accord, balanced by a mysterious, shadowy, woody facet.
A signature perfume that beckons you back, again and again. A gentlemanly masterpiece that men will love – and women won’t be able to get enough of.
Top Notes: Grapefruit, Lavander, Bergamot, Rhubarb
Heart Notes: Fir Balsam, Amaretto accord
Base Notes: Tonka Bean, Ambroxan, Modern Woods
JOVOY is the story of an enchanting renaissance, that of a Parisian perfume house born in 1923 and then forgotten for over 80 years. In 2010, François Hénin, a globetrotter captivated by alluring raw materials, decided to give it new life. After years of picaresque adventures pursuing scents deep into Vietnamese forests, followed by a detour through Grasse, the entrepreneurial adventurer had acquired unique expertise. Now the house's creator and Artistic Director, he is making JOVOY Parfumeur Parisien an emblematic hallmark of niche contemporary perfumery. Whether they are eaux de parfum, extracts or interior scents, all JOVOY creations have a beguiling story to tell, originating from a personal meeting or experience. Each one is artfully prepared by independent noses engaged in creative fusion with the publishing house, and their interpretation must convey the initial promise and vision. As a result of this resolutely modern approach, JOVOY signs its name to a collection of multiple inspirations, perfectly in tune with amateurs of rare fragrances from around the world. The complete opposite of standardised global creations, JOVOY therefore stands for the dream of exceptional perfumery, part of a notable French tradition and far from ostentation and elitism. An accessible dream, too, that the house wishes to share with all those who want pure fragrances arising out of emotion to carry them away on a journey.
