FORT & MANLÉ Impressions de Giverny 50ml
“I want to paint the air around the bridge, the house, the boat. The beauty of the air where they are, and it is nothing other than impossible" - Claude Monet.
Le Jardin à Giverny is a hypnotic kaleidoscope of vibrant florals from eloquent tulips to iridescent iris. The heady fragrance of tuberose coupled with the refined fragrance of rose overwhelm the senses whilst the clamour of poppies and enchanting peonies adorn the flowerbeds. A melange of rare exotic blooms and unpretentious native flora, all coexisting in delicate harmony. Lush bamboo thickets, wisteria and weeping willows surround the pond which is decorated in pink and white water lillies perched on bright green pads.
Reminiscent to a painting, at close glance the garden appears to be a chaotic array of colour, however on broader reflection it coalesces as a masterpiece by a true impressionist.
This fragrance is my impression of Le Jardin à Giverny in scent, the beauty of the air that cannot be achieved by the brush. An olfactive journey of Monet's vision for a Japanese garden in the heart of Normandy.
Fort & Manle is a Maison de Parfum whose philosophy is to continually create individualistic, eclectic and often eccentric handcrafted, luxury perfume.
Fort & Manle is an independent, artisanal perfume house which is founded and wholly owned by the perfumer himself, Rasei Fort.
In an attempt to strive for scent perfection, using predominantly the most refined and exquisite naturals, botanicals and absolutes, Rasei aims to transport the user, whisking them away on a sumptuous, olfactive journey to the most exotic locales on the planet, to be truly enveloped by naturally authentic and vivid scent.
Not being deterred by the exorbitant costs of the finest natural raw materials, at Fort & Manle, we adhere to using the most refined and precious natural extracts rather than substituting them with inexpensive and artificial, synthetic molecules, which have become so prevalent within the industry.
Obsessive in his approach, Rasei meticulously blends artisanal oils, extracts and the finest Oudh in existence. The results speak for itself, truly enhancing the fragrance, coupled with sprinklings of the most effective aroma molecules.
As a self-taught perfumer, Rasei Fort continually references history and varied cultures, including his own rich, Turkish heritage by scouring the world for the finest raw materials and combining them with his inspirations, evoking the pomp and pageantry of the Empires of old.
This has resulted in the creation of luxurious compositions which combine the modern with 'Old-World' sensibilities.
Please note: Due to the nature of the natural raw materials used in our fragrances, the perfumes may vary slightly between batches.
