"The iris as fur..."
Woody, powdery, but also floral: iris is transformed as a result of a clever, spicy, aromatic accord of cardamom, rosewood, and lavender. Pepper and Argentinian lemon zest give this scent character; vanilla and musk reinforce a creamy, woody base of vetiver, patchouli, and gaiacwood.
Huitième Art, the eighth art - the art of the perfumer - has gained a new dimension of expression and creativity. The collection Huitième Art opens new dimensions of fragrances that confirm the exceptional talent of Pierre Guillaume. His unique ability to realize expressive ideas and interpret feelings through scent are evidence of his art and skill.
Your order of Huitième Art, Shermine will include free Shipping on orders of $150 or more.
Born in Clermont, Pierre Guillaume was a young 25-year-old chemist when he composed his first fragrance, COZÉ 02.
This “Spicy Tobacco” accord, inspired by the contents of a precious cigar case owned by his father, received critical acclaim from the fragrance blogosphere, which brought it to the attention of professional buyers all around the world.
After New York Times perfume critic Chandler Burr praised “the young French chemist who concocted the coolest new European fragrances”, marked the commercial debut of the Collection Parfumerie Generale by Pierre Guillaume.
In 2010, the perfumer founded Pierre Guillaume Diffusion and set up a production facility comprising a composition studio, a cellar for raw materials and a packaging line solely dedicated to manufacturing the fragrances conceived by Pierre Guillaume.
A second facility was inaugurated in 2015 to handle the company’s logistics.
Pierre Guillaume enjoys complete artistic and financial freedom to create his perfumes collection's in his own studios and workshops, under the brand Pierre Guillaume Paris.
