The inspiration for Emmanuelle Amzallag's L'Orientaliste fragrances lies at the foot of the Atlas mountains in Morocco. Sandalwood influenced by the table-makers of the souk and a hint of Jasmine from the palace gardens are just two of the fragrances that reflect the voluptuous and sensuous qualities of this Moroccan inspired range.
The complete line of rare, unique and precious scents was created in 1997 and comprises the following:
Jasmine, Musk, Amber, Gardenia, Mimosa, Patchouli, Vanilla, Orange Blossom, Rose from the Atlas Mountains & Sandalwood
The Eaux de parfum, with a concentration of 80% alcohol, is sold in 50ml pump sprays.
Each fragrance has been created in Grasse, France’s perfume capital by the world’s top noses and comes individually packed in boxes suggesting the Henna tradition of Marrakech.
L’Orientaliste doesn’t advertise. It doesn’t need to unlike some of the larger marketing-obsessed fragrance houses. It is a niche boutique brand that is learned of by word of mouth and is aimed at the cool perfumista who knows exactly what she wants.
We think perfume is experiential – almost a relationship. Our main emphasis is on expertise, craftsmanship, savoire-faire and our customer is our patron, not merely a casual shopper.
