PG & SL à Tipasa
Albert Camus' essay 'Noces à Tipasa' (ca. 1936), Pierre Guillaume's inspiration for 7.2 Morning in Tipasa, provides a landscape portrait of the Algerian coastal town of Tipasa, complete with surrounding countryside, bursting with olfactory impressions. A text almost too inviting for a perfume. Right from the first page, there is talk of lush aromatic plants, the beguiling heat of the Algerian summer on the Mediterranean, before Camus gets specific: Bougainvilleas, hibiscus, tea-hybrid roses, irises, mastic trees, broom plants, geraniums, heliotrope, and again and again Artemisia absinthium: Wormwood, absinthe leaves. Always coastal breezes and sunshine. At least in the official notes there is none of that, mentioned here is: "Wild Lemongrass, Peppermint, Mediterranean Pine, Bergamot, Jujube Tree Honey". Lemongrass, presumably also wild, and jujube I would have guessed more from Malaysia eastwards, but in sum what Guillaume suggests here is coherent. Seaside coniferous, minty, herbal-aquatic start, followed by lots of pine and traces of honey, all in light.

I'm still not too familiar with the work of Michelin's original full-time chemist. That his production facility, like Michelin in the Auvergne, sits in Clermont-Ferrand, is sympathetic, the idea to subject own fragrances to an in-house remix also - the 7.2 in the title should refer to the predecessors 7.1 and 7. But I'm not sure how far this is still an in-house remix or already a style transfer. 7.2 Morning in Tipasa, reminds by the honey/pine combination - as already observed by AugustA - of Fille en Anguilles (2009), or rather of a finer, aquatic dilution of it. 'Mediterranean Pine Forest', much like Aquatic, is a perennial and unattainable fantasy of perfumers, fine as applied. I haven't been in Mediterranean pine forests for a while, but often in Atlantic ones, and every time I'm blown away by their complexity and lightness. In addition to the beach pines & co. that play a decisive role, it is also the sum of the other grasses, scrub, rocks and sediment that make up the whole. Lutens' coniferous forest is camp, it is clearly confessed perfume and not bottled landscape. Morning in Tipasa is also perfume, only the far more subtle dosage makes the difference here, mint and honey (Guillaume has already skillfully used in 25 Indochine) actually yield something that looks like slowly withering near the sea without drifting deep into the aquatic, here from the other side of the Mediterranean.

Approximately 810 km it is from Tipasa to the Corsican Scandola peninsula, as the crow flies. I have to think of their warm herbal aquatics distantly, 7.2 employs similar soft focus, though less differentiated. 3134 km, by car, via Paris, is the distance Tipasa -> Blenheim Castle. If the aforementioned soft focus or photographic bokeh were again overdriven by some amount, trace elements of the Paris - Edinburgh journey, which never quite arrived in Scotland, but at least at Bouquet Castle, would also be audible. And, to return to AugustA's aptly compact outline, this reduced, simpler volume suits the perfume quite well, a purposefully staged honeyed resinous pine, with minimal green-aquatic details.

PG and SL in the pine forest
Morning in Tipasa is a bit of a PG version of Lutens' Fille en Aiguilles for AugustA. Fresher, sweeter, not as serious. The morning version perhaps while the Lutens for me takes place in the Mediterranean late afternoon sun. But both in the pine forest with the fragrant resin so warm and so refreshing. A tangy warm summer/autumn/late summer pine scent. Seemingly simple, but very compelling.

Wedding in Tipasa
Sunny day with an aromatic scent.
This is what summer should look like, with another masterpiece from this beautiful house.
""Wedding in Tipasa (1938) by Albert Camus is one of my favorite texts: The author vividly depicts the summer, the rites of youth in Tipasa, with its Roman ruins and the sea below, exalting nature and the beauty of bodies under the sun. “Possession of the wave”… the words of Camus resonate in my head as a perfumer and my mind wanders among the remains scattered between sea and mountain, listing the Algerian flora: bergamot trees, wild lemongrass, peppermint, Mediterranean pine and jujube tree in the “sun-blackened” countryside. Diving in the water from the rocks, one morning in Tipasa…""
I think it's the first time I've worn it in full, because so far i've only tested it.
It is a green, aromatic fragrance.Very clean and easy to wear.The peppermint makes it a must have.The packaging is beautiful.
You will get a quality presentation overall,
and i think that's what anyone wants.
I'm sure i found another favorite fragrance from this beautiful house. I will definitely put it on the list for summer fragrances, because that's where it belongs.
