Fireplace provenÇal delice
In my exploration of this brand , i am taken this time to my beloved south of France. 44ºN 03ºE features very iconic mediterranean raw materials. The result, thoug, is less pungent of what one would expect with such ingredients list, but certainly very interesting and appealing. 44ºN 03ºE (seriously, this name is beyond annoying, beacause it just doesnt say anything. Marketing, someone?) has a delightful texture, pretty much like the marron glacé that it does contain; soft, dim, sweet, rich and enveloping are adjectives that come to my mind while i am wearing this fragance. The sweet, resinous notes are well balanced with fresh-balsamic/herbaceous touches from lavender and pine. There is a terpenic glow from the juniper, but all this darker accents fade progresively so 44ºN 03ºE becomes mostly sweet,almost gourmand but never foody, quite as it happens with the 04ºN 74º W. Very suitable for winter, lasts many hours and has an appropriate sillage. As with the other creations of Richard Lüscher Britos, despite of being SO demanding on us a what it comes to remembering names and coordinates, i am quite fond of the quality of this perfume.

The South of France distilled
Just as winemakers pride themselves on the terroir of their vineyards to contribute particular notes and flavors to their wines, Richard Lüscher Britos utilizes this concept to instill a particular sense of place to their Terroir Perfumes. Each perfume in the line is named for map coordinates that specify the region of the world from which its natural ingredients are harvested. In this case, 44°N 03°E is meant to embody the terroir of the South of France.

44°N 03°E is formulated with wild lavender, juniper and pine native to the region. It's a beautiful, uncomplicated fragrance created by, I was pleasantly surprised to learn, Andy Tauer. It opens with lemon and a slight candy sweetness which I assume is the “glazed chestnut” note. It’s not long before lavender joins in and eventually becomes the dominant scent. As the lemon fades gracefully into the background, pine and juniper rise up, filling in the gaps and blending seamlessly with the lavender. And I mean seamlessly. If there is any aspect of lavender that can connect with conifers, or vice versa, Tauer has managed to do it. A little sharpness in the lavender finds its mate in the conifers while the resinous quality of the conifers finds its mate in the lavender. It’s really beautiful how everything blends.

I'm probably being hyper-aware but there is one scent component associated with natural perfumery I don’t care for and it's ever so slightly detectable in 44°N 03°E. Sometimes essences from all natural plant extracts can go flat and meld into a camphorous, sappy amalgam. If you go to a health food store and walk along the shelves of natural cosmetics and perfume oils you will smell what I’m trying to describe. There seems to be a LITTLE bit of that odor in 44°N 03°E. However, the lavender and conifers maintain plenty of dominance and never go flat so this issue is unlikely to be detectable away from the skin. Again, this is a very minor complaint and aside from that, 44°N 03°E is a wonderful perfume.

A big thank you to MiaVonTrost for providing US Parfumo members with samples for a pass around!
