Interesting Facts

The fragrance is part of the collection "Huitième Art", which was renamed "Collection Noire" in 2018. "In the creation process of Ciel d'Airain, we were seeking to develop a new wood note, the pear tree, as L'Artisan Parfumeur and Diptyque did with the fig tree about fifteen years ago. Fresh fruit extracts combined with phenoxyethyl isobutyrate, (a chemical fragrance compound reminiscent of apples) allowed us to express the character of fruits, leaves and wood of the pear tree with striking realism." (Pierre Guillaume during an interview by CaFleureBon, September 26, 2010)

Ciel d'Airain
This fragrance opens with a fig and pear combination that is particularly interesting: the juicy sweetness of the pear note is perfectly framed by the milky green note of the fig. The pear note unfortunately loses most of its strength rather fast, but thankfully amber softens the salty, slightly bitter, green note soon after the pear’s disappearance. From then on, the fragrance does not change any more. The ingredients used are all of highest quality as always with this line; yet I found the fragrance wanting. Although perfectly nice, to me it is just a fragrance sketch, a fragment.

Kaleyard, autumn, afternoon
This is a weak or rather gentle and tactful scent. It is philosophical. This is not a real disadvantage, but you have to find the right moment to wear it.

I have to thank the information to Louce, that Airain means bronze, and for the word: dim - nothing could describe this fragrance better. Imagine a garden in the late afternoon, when the silhouettes are already brown. It is not an ornamental garden, only a small kaleyard with a few ramshackle, old fruit tree. You are eating a pear. Its peel is bitter, the seeds as well, the flesh is sweet. This sweetnes does not come from refined sugar or vanille, it is the natural sweet aroma of the fruit. The air gets cold, but you do not want to go back to the house yet. You can feel the gnarled branch of the tree under your palm. Turn this into the language of scents, and you get CIEL D'AIRAIN.

I am really thankful for this fragrance. It gives a feeling and does not ask for your attention in return.

Bronze Sky
Ciel d´Airain, no matter what the pyramid says, is predominantly and all along the line a fig fragrance. Nonetheless an unaccustomed and appealing one with charming accents given by the notes listed above.
Actually „olive“ is really the recognizable scent of olives. Take black olives (not green ones) before they are all salty and pickled. Their taste is completely translated to scent and takes a darkening, rounding, matifying and in fact some kind of oily effect. Very nice! But you have to wait until the second half of the middle note for this surprisingly pleasant aspect. The olive enters the stage after a juicy, lightly sweet and ripe pear has dominated the top note to soon make way for the fig. It is primarily the well-known fig, smelled in many other perfumes… but with a supertiny little bit of a twist: a pulverulent massiness is given to the fig aspect by the amber. This snippy twist makes this fig interesting and enjoyable. Then the olive note comes thereto. It appears slowly, but becomes stronger and stronger and gradually borrows the leading role from the fig to finally take most of the drydown-stage with the now partner switching ambergris.
„Airain“ which means „bronze“ is the adequate colour of this perfumes heaven. Dim, but still lustrous, metallic-brown and shimmering warm.

An unfamiliar, but in the same moment oddly familiar fragrance with enthralling developing and quite a good durability. And VERY soft. A little frail and mellow, not loud or extravert. Too soft for my bias, to become a superfavourite of me, who needs a little more femaleness, sexyness and shiny, outgoing stage presence in a fragrance. But I have found the perfect time of application to my skin: in spa. When I feel healthy, clean, calm and set my mind at rest after I had a sauna, Cd´A is the ideal companion. As „my spa fragrance“ Cd´A has displaced my long time favoured „Sel de Vetiver“.
