A tribute to a vibrant colourful gemstone

Azurite is a soft copper mineral produced by weathering of copper ore deposits. It owes its name to its beautiful azure-blue colour, which makes it a very popular and well-known mineral. It has been used by people in many parts of the world for thousands of years as an ore of copper, as a pigment, as a gemstone, and as an ornamental stone.

The colour of azurite also reminds the deep blue colours of the French Côte d’Azur and all the wonderful scents that blow all over this unique region of France.

Created in collaboration with perfumer Thomas Fontaine, Ombre Azurite is a floral, ozonic and green fragrance.

The Composition

Ombre Azurite produces the same sunny floral aroma as do the gentle trade winds blowing along the rocky coast of the Côte d'Azur. 

The notes of jasmine and lily perfectly convey a marine sense that blends beautifully with the spicy iodine of the Mediterranean Sea.

The sensuality of mixing sandalwood with tonka bean caresses the skin like the warmth of the mid-day sun.
