What Does Histoires de Parfums 1/.4 Smell Like?
Composed exclusively of natural essences and inspired by the universal principle of yin, 1/.4 Eau de Parfum feels instantly warm and spicy. Sharp, balsamic davana blends with aromatic lavender, while a hot flash of cardamom makes the fragrance feel like a slice of warm, spiced fruit cake in the middle of winter. The heart settles into a cosy ambery tone as the lunar strength of sweet ylang-ylang blends with balsamic benzoin and sweet, creamy tonka bean, before the balmy depths of leathery labdanum, earthy patchouli and spicy, warm opoponax are revealed.
Top notes are Davana, Lavender, Cardamom.
Heart notes are Ylang-Ylang, Tonka Bean, Benzoin.
Base notes are Patchouli, Labdanum, Opoponax.
Why it’s Escentual:
This Histoires de Parfums fragrance honours the ancient Chinese philosophy of yin and yang, a belief that opposite forces may actually be complementary, interconnected and fit together in harmony - despite their juxtaposing natures. 1/.4 Eau de Parfum is the perfume of yin, which is seen throughout the likes of the earth, femininity, darkness and passivity in contrast to yang, which represents heaven, masculinity, light and activity - to name just a few.
We love how This Is Not A Blue Bottle 1/.4 captures the elements of yin through its use of natural essences, earthy facets and the dark depths explored in its base notes. And of course, the fragrance fits in perfectly with This Is Not A Blue Bottle 1/.5 to offer complete yin and yang. Not only do the bottles feature the same design but with their colours flipped to recall the visualisation of this ancient Chinese philosophy, but the perfumes have actually been created with layering in mind. Just like its inspiration, 1/.4 is a standout fragrance on its own and offers a powerful richness in its own right, but it’s enhanced by 1/.5 as they harmonise to unveil nature’s brute strength.
