This is not your teenager’s vanilla. Rich, smoky, and smooth??like a fine cognac??Vanille d’Amine hints at intrigues on dark nights, with vanilla from Madagascar undergirded by velvety smooth clove, with incense adding another layer of mystery. Smelling Vanille d’Amine for the first time is like opening a leather-bound vintage book in a library impregnated with the scent of pipe smoke from day’s long gone by.
Named in homage to Amine Kalfane, L’Atelier Français des Matières’ partner in Comoros/Madagascar who provides both the vanilla and clove for the fragrance, Vanille d’Amine uses an oleoresin extraction whose olfactive profile of vanilla planifolia is quite different from the standard, with dark chocolate and plum facets.
If you are only familiar with conventionally confectionary vanilla, take a walk on the dark side. It smells pretty sexy over here.
