A change of hands to a skilled family of perfumers with over 100 years of expertise marks a new chapter in the history of L'Artisan Parfumeur. With this new beginning comes a fresh perspective; a return to the brand's roots fueled by the desire to allow its iconic heritage to flourish, and to reveal its love of nature and the new, as well as Jean Laporte's original passion for perfume. A pioneering spirit with a contemporary vision that has endured for 40 years, L'Artisan Parfumeur is a contrasting celebration of both the classic and the modern.
Passage d'Enfer pays homage to the Parisian location of L'Artisan Parfumeur's office in the 1970s. It conjures up images of chilled cathedral walls and echoes of rituals and incantations. Translucent lily and white musk sweeten the balsamic smoke of incense. Passage d'Enfer is also a wicked play on words, the symbolic "Hell's passage," a moment caught between two worlds. The name may be dark and unsettling, but the scent itself is tranquil and contemplative.
A fragrance playing on the contrasting facets of incense; its dry and poignant freshness is rounded by the scent of white musk and lilies.
