What the Nose says
"Thibaud Crivelli discovered papyrus powder during an unexpected encounter with a group of women who were smoking cigarillos. The impromptu character of the moment, along with its feminine/virile duality, led him to work on a gender-free perfume highlighting a raw material little-known in haute perfumery. Papyrus, which has warm, woody, spicy and smoky notes, here reveals its more transparent, powdery yet spicy aspects. A strong signature with highly contrasting notes provides a rebellious perfume reflecting this stolen moment!

Papyrus lies at the heart of this perfume. The spicy, original notes of this raw material are coupled with and heightened by a lively piquant duo of elemi and pepper. An aromatic raw material with green facets, elemi is accentuated by a touch of coriander, which adds a truly original head note. The papyrus heart of the perfume reveals a woody note of iris, while a soft amyris facet is enlivened by powdery carrot seed. The base sees tonka bean extend the rounded woods, as its hay facet combines with tobacco leaves. Meanwhile, frankincense boosts the pepper and powdery notes. From the heart through to the base, each raw material completes this unique and complex accord." - a note from the brand.
"I wanted to take a different approach to working on a papyrus-based fragrance. This wood is usually combined with very oriental notes and oud. I wanted to create a contrast between hot and cold, with the fresh, effusive notes of coriander leaf, followed by the spicy aspect of elemi, and the intense, smoky woody side of papyrus. This composition is warmed by a milky, musky amyris, which has entrancing notes of cigar. I added a hint of iris and powder to bring a touch of elegance and sensuality to the perfume."
Leslie Girard, the perfumer.
Beauty lies in the unexpected
It is this conviction that drove visionary founder Thibaud to launch Maison Crivelli. Through each Haute Parfumerie creation, Thibaud Crivelli shares the memory of an unexpected and ultra-sensorial encounter with fragrance raw materials.
This collection has been crafted with various perfume masters, each of them having a very unique artistic approach. All perfumes surprise with their contrasts, their originality and their modernity.Innovation

The bottles are sealed with a cap stamped with the Maison Crivelli monogram. This house signature lies on unpolished, non-identical zamac caps, each of which is unique, thereby extending the art of the unexpected that we at Maison Crivelli appreciate so much.
