Western perfumery is synonymous with
French perfumery. But when you compare modern western
perfumes to the vintage classics like the original Chypre by
Coty or Guerlain's Jicky, you do notice the resemblances but
the experience is something different altogether.
With over a dozen vintage French perfume recipes referred to - some even older than the classic vintage French genres - Agar Parisien was in fact formulated to resemble modern French perfumes, where the lines dividing the different genres are blurred.
But although it is modern in its merging of genres, the use of high quality natural and now seldom-used ingredients gives it a sparkle which you only find in goldie oldies.
Top notes of rose, bergamot and grapefruit meld right into the warm heart of Peru balsam and our very own extracts of intoxicating absinthe and sensual coumarin (those who know the vintage differentiation between coumarin and tonka will likely appreciate this the most).
Oud, although typically considered a base note, is ever-present right from the get go. Using one of our future-release wild Thai ouds, the entire scent palette of this perfume was built around it while avoiding 'challenging' notes or any elements that clash with western perfumery structures. Cedar, oud, and the most amazing foresty oakmoss sing their soothing notes into the drydown.
Genuine coumarin extract. Irish ambergris. Wild oud...
Some of the many precious materials used in this concoction.
No synthetics, only high quality natural materials.
Western perfumery just got a makeover.
Agar Parisien arrived and we
already made friendship and it will be for a long time .
Congratulations for the outstanding work . I am officially an admirer of Agar Aura !!!
This is a bad thing to have as my first chypre perfume. I can’t imagine they get any better.
My favourite from 2nd collection is the Agar Parisien because I'm a Chypre lover. First fragrance I smelled than incorporated Oud in this genre...
So nice. The Agar Parisien is more woody than normal Chypre which is more powdery since oakmoss is the main base notes while yours is more woody due to the Oud. And the Oakmoss also is earthy fresh type.
Taha Knocked this one out. I am floored.
Agar Parisian is out of this world. Taha is gonna give French perfumery a run for their money.
The Oud is so well blended with Oakmoss, ambergris and Coumarin is so well done.
I'm wearing it today and it's blowing my mind! This has to be the most balanced attar you've created to date. The rose does not dominate but gives it lift. The orris is there, it's noticeable, slightly powdery and a little buttery, giving it some richness, which along with the ambergris is fantastic. The ambergris makes it a little briny so it's not too soft, a little edgy (ie, more interesting). For all the oakmoss that's in this one it's not that strong but it's there and this has to be the least "oudy' attar you've ever made - not that it's missing though because I can definitely smell it. Balanced, that's what I'm saying. The way this one is put together is extraordinary, very "perfume"-like in construction. Your best attar yet. I'm glad I got two bottles.
Im really liking Agar Parisien, I have worn it everyday for last 3 days and it makes me feel euphoric when I smell it from my wrist. It smells very complex and reminds me of spicy ginger bread and chai tea.
It also has a nature smell, must be the oakmoss. Its great for the colder days and winter is well on its way here in Australia.
Rare blend, soft dry down. Very green opening notes. Love this chypre! An unexpected treat. And very reasonable too.
Taha, this is absolutely the best oils I've ever enjoyed. Please send me a invoice for 3 more bottles agar parian
Has a surprising relaxing effect!
The Parisien mukhallat is phenomenal!! Please reserve me a bottle until I have a chance to sample the ouds. It is really a beautiful floral heavy composition --- the rose and iris playing backup to the lily that is absolutely crowing!! This oakmoss is so gentle and earthy (dusty). My skin amplifies oakmoss to the nth degree so I was concerned how this would work for me. I am so glad I went ahead to sample this! One of your most feminine offerings, I think. Now, can I be satisfied with just one bottle of this gem.
