What does Nepalese pepper smell like?
Nepalese pepper is also known as Timut pepper. This new false pepper is all the rage in cooking and belongs to the same family as Sichuan pepper. It has an extraordinary fragrance of citrus fruits and grapefruit. You can also detect a lemony floral hint with a base of exotic fruits. This spice can be found all across Nepal, primarily in the Terai region of wetlands in the south of the country, where it is eaten on a daily basis. The Terai is the birthplace of the Buddha. Timur pepper is harvested over an average period of three weeks. The thorns on the Timur bush make the task long and difficult. Its berries are dried in the sun and the aromatic black seed emerges from its casing.

What is the story behind Tonkin musk?
The favorite fragrance of Empress Josephine and a legendary perfume ingredient, Tonkin musk has an extremely powerful scent that is both woody and animalistic. Produced by the glands of the musk deer, Tonkin musk was considered to be an aphrodisiac and was drunk with a straw. Oh dear! Today it is illegal to obtain musk from the deer, but it is now possible to recreate its scent. Ambrette, for example, is a flower with a musky smell.

What is oud?
Oud, oodh, agarwood, aloeswood, calambac, jinko or gaharu – there are so many names for this one ingredient! It is a very fragrant dark resin produced by a genus of trees called Aquilaria when they are infected with the Phialophra mold. Once the tree has produced an abundance of the black resin, it is cut into chips and then soaked in water to prepare it for extraction. If it isn’t soaked for long enough, the oil will tend to stay inside. However if it is soaked for too long, it can spoil the scent. It is therefore a matter of precision timing! Finally, the wood obtained must be distilled for many hours using distillation apparatus to obtain the essential oil. That is why it is one of the most expensive ingredients in perfumery and it is said that the wood is worth more than its weight in gold. This precious wood reveals woody, animalistic, sometimes even very animalistic notes. It is occasionally said that it has caprine notes (i.e. reminiscent of goats). It is truly an olfactory treasure for fragrance compositions that combine sensuality and power.

903 reflects the animal nature with all its secrets and all its eroticism. The contrast between fresh notes of Nepalese berries and hot saffron opens a refined fusion of musk and cashmeran. A striking warm note reminiscent of body eroticism and perfected in a fascinating symbiosis. This complex fragrance comes alive with a woody base note of oud and sandalwood, which adds that extra depth and power to this haunting scent.
All fragrances from Bon Parfumeur can be mixed together or "layered". For this you can, depending on the desired intensity, spray the in the product description recommended combination on top of each other with the actual fragrance. This perfume combines particularly well with 101 for floral notes and with 302 for even deeper musky notes.

Heart Notes: Musk Tonkin, Cashmeran, Patchouli
