Petite Brise (the gentle breeze) is a limited edition floral chypre, and quite possibly my favourite perfume of all. It features the structured familiarity of traditional chypres; of bergamot, labdanum and oakmoss forming the foundation for a texturally marvelous accident of nature that pits night-blooming jasmine in perfect opposition with vetiver.
Together, they sing as one in a harmonious jewel of cool restraint, and yet, Petite Brise takes us straight to the heart of splendour, as noticed immediately by people passing by. They stop in their tracks… to turn and ask
“What is that perfume?“
