Passage d'Enfer Eau de Toilette

DESCRIPTION

A fragrance playing on the contrasting facets of incense; its dry and poignant freshness is rounded by the scent of white musk and lilies.

Passage d’Enfer pays homage to the Parisian location of L’Artisan Parfumeur’s office in the 1970s. It conjures up images of chilled cathedral walls and echoes of rituals and incantations. Translucent lily and white musk sweeten the balsamic smoke of incense. Passage d’Enfer is also a wicked play on words, the symbolic “Hells passage”, a moment caught between two worlds. The name may be dark and unsettling, but the scent itself is tranquil and contemplative.

ABOUT the MAKER

L'Artisan Parfumeur

Founded in Paris by perfumer-chemist Jean Laporte in 1976, L'Artisan Parfumeur was in the very first wave of what we now know as 'niche' perfume houses. 

L'Artisan Parfumeur was born of the French tradition of the Art-of-Fragrance, inspired by nature. With an avant-garde spirit and touch of alchemy, L'Artisan Parfumeur worked from the outset with the highest quality materials, forging them into the most original, and sometimes shocking, compositions. 

The brand continues to capture the hearts of a band of true fragrance aficionados, who are looking for quality, craftsmanship, and authenticity.
