Inspired by creator Ruta Degutyte’s passion for the scent of the ocean, the scent features ambergris tincture
French luxury fragrance brand Art de Parfum has announced the release of its sixth limited edition cruelty-free fragrance.
Encore Une Fois (£150), featuring ambergris tincture, was inspired by creator Ruta Degutyte’s passion for the scent of the ocean.
Blended with top notes of bergamot, petitgrain and ambergris, are heart tones of patchouli, cedar and balsams. The dry down features sea salt, tobacco, caramel, Peruvian balsam and benzoin.
“I was inspired by John Mark Green’s poem that reads ‘I want to hold you close skin on skin, and let our heartbeats have a conversation,’” said Degutyte.
“Using ambergris is my way of capturing the scent of the intimacy of a lover’s sun, the cool salt air of the ocean and the balsamic earthiness of a nearby forest.
The fragrance will join Signature Wild, Sensual Oud, Sea Foam, Gin and Tonic and Excentrique Moi.
Degutyte added: “It’s sensual in a wild, organic way that will appeal to lovers of nature and to lovers in general.”
The scent will be available from September via artdeparfum.com.
