The Latin Orientals enrich the diary of this tireless traveler into the heart of the perfume’s mysteries. His olfactory signature opens the doors to a secret world, full of thousand-year-long traditions and precious materials to offer the keys to another sensuality, harmony and encounter between the Orient and the Occident. What will be your Secret?
The Latin Orientals are a subtle and perfect balance of two arts of perfumery. They marry the sophisticated discretion, fineness of the French floral tradition to the power and opulence of oriental culture, fruitful source of inspiration, where spices, woods, resins and balsams evoke culinary customs and ways of perfuming.
Thanks to commerce, the Occident met the Orient and discovered a “savoir-faire” which was raised to the rank of Art. From the Middle-Ages to the Renaissance, especially around the 18th century, customs evolved. Fascinated by the art of fragrances, the Europeans started to compose lighter, fresher scents with a subtle floral dominant note, very distinct from heady oriental perfumes.
The Latin Orientals Collection
The collection is a daydream where one can stroll around the harmonies and vibrations of colors and perfumes of an oriental garden, or choose to breathe under the starry nights of Paris or the desert. Mysterious, delicate, powerful, always subtle, it is the perfume of ultimate poetry and ultimate feminine and masculine sensuality, the perfect union between Occident and Orient. The Latin Orientals, are full of messages and symbols that make them unique and precious.
The warm orangey colors of oriental spices surround the delicate weaving of the doors’ moucharaby, on an alternation of black, depending on whether it is a fragrance for women or for men. The high positioned lock, expresses mystery, temptation and a forbidden world. The key, held by a cord finely crafted and tied around the neck of the bottle, is placed on the transparent glass and opens the doors to a world of delights and pleasures. Roman numerals question: from I to VI, they represent some kind of Secret, the appearance of mystery… What will be your Secret? The bottle with feminine curves, evokes Arabian Nights, Scheherazade and Aida, whereas the masculine bottle, refined and distinguished, expresses strength and solidity.
José Eisenberg has chosen ingredients that confer on his perfumes an opulent and persistent note, tempered by lighter notes of French perfumery: from the Rose, Queen of Flowers, or the Jasmine, King of the Night, to spices like Cardamom, Pink Pepper, Saffron, Cumin or even Pepper, to Oud wood, Sandalwood, Cedar, Patchouli, Palisander Wood, not to mention resins and balsams brought by the Labdanum, the Frankincense, the Myrrh, the Benzoin, the Amber, as well as soft and velvety notes of the Musks. Long-lasting, the Latin Orientals mark the personality and the trail of those who will set out to discover the secret they will make theirs.
