What do you get when you combine two of the costliest ingredients in perfumery??ambergris and orris??with animalic musks and spices? In Antoine Lie’s hands, a mysteriously sexy elixir that melts into skin, leaving a sheer but substantial trace of fairy dust that’s subtly sweet, spicy, sensuous, and ever-evolving.
Musc des Sables opens with a fresh, bright mandarin note that seamlessly transitions into cozy, spiced opulence. Ambergris in contemporary, even luxury perfumes, is mostly synthetic due to its price and scarcity, but the ambergris at Musc des Sables’ heart??tinctured from authentic ambre gris (grey amber) through a 6-month process done specifically for Les Indémodables at its founders’ lab??pulsates with sensuality and complexity. Anyone who’s smelled this classical perfume ingredient in its authentic form in vintage or bespoke formulas will recognize it here as the real deal for its earthy, animalic and even tabacco-like warmth that leaves its trace hours into wearing it.
Combined with creamy orris, spices, patchouli and musk, Musc des Sables’ heady formula somehow maintains a diaphanous??yet persistent?? lightness. Pure magic.
