Bon Parfumeur

Eau de parfum 801 with sea spray, cedar and grapefruit 30ml


Sea, spray and sun! Like a breeze of sea spray that caresses our face, 801 is refreshing with its grapefruit start. This wind intensifies and makes the spices twirl: pink pepper and nutmeg bring a touch of spice. The rows of cedar and cypress trees diffuse into the air their facets of wood dried by the sun's rays.

What does “aquatic” mean in perfumery?

This relatively recent fragrance category was born in the 90s with the discovery of certain ingredients. We’re talking, of course, about aquatic notes, briny and reminiscent of seaside memories. But it’s also more than that; “aquatic” refers to all the notes that suggest water-filled plants and fruits, like melon or watermelon. They lend a watery dimension to compositions. Lotus is also very useful for recreating this sensation, by adding its gentle floral touch. 

What does sea spray smell like?
Seawater, an iodized breeze. Impossible to extract olfactory substance from this sea wind, but the talent of the perfumer does wonders. It is the combination of several raw materials that gives us the smell of a sea breeze. It is thanks to these notes that the 801 takes us directly to the seaside from the first scents!

What does cedar smell like?
It's a very dry wood scent, much like the scent of pencil. Here, it reminds us of the notes of wind-dried wood, or the scent of driftwood found on the sand. These fusing notes boost the fresh facets of sea spray.

What does grapefruit smell like?
The perfect citrus fruit for the summer, grapefruit seduces us with its bitter yet sweet taste. Its juicy and zesty note reminds us of freshly squeezed fruit. As a top note in 801, it brings the freshness of citrus and brightens the opening notes.
