Irreverent En Aparte

An irreverent lavender-aoud. Notes and accords taunt and jostle one another within this spicy, deceptively dimensional oriental. Effortlessly androgynous, Irreverent merrily inverts expectation of what an aoud can be. Initially, the sweet freshness of bergamot softens the golden gleam of elemi and an especially electric lavender; infused by elemi’s loud and proud energy, this herbal, purple flower reads as (unusually) ultra violet. Together these initial notes signal the thoughtful way in which Irreverent is dedicated to dismantling scented norms.

These light and bright openers clash vigorously with the relatively soothing, earthy balm of styrax and aoud. Ultimately, the heart wins; styrax smoothes out the elemi’s kinks, while coffee’s bitter kick outdoes bergamots mellow bite. Oud’s smooth woody wit interweaves with and absorbs lavender: cool floral memories inlay woody heat in barely visible, rippling rings. A desire to indulge is fulfilled in patchouli’s impertinence, sandalwood’s gushing, verdant insouciance and amber’s addictive sweetness. These three base elements are as profoundly insolent as they are elegant. Ever evolving and resolutely playful, Irreverent captures our humor and our hearts. (Derived from Latin. Irreverens: rejecting conventions)
About En Aparte Collection:
Perfume is expression, a brave declaration and a secret passion; the En Aparte Collection explores this private-public, fragrant duality. Comprised of three distinct but connected compositions (Irrévérent, Outrecuidant, Prolixe) Gerald Ghislain designed En Aparté for his own, private use...until he was inspired to release this trio to the public. Liberating libations worth sharing.

Governed by impulse rather than rules, En Aparte takes us deeper into the extraordinary interior of Ghislain’s imagination, which is fleshed out with exquisite materials and in the delightful, enmeshed poetry of both Eastern and Western fragrant traditions. These sublimely spacious scents are practical magic.
