L'Artisan Parfumeur Passage D'Enfer EDT is a unisex amber oriental eau de toilette. A fragrance that plays on the contrasting facets of incense; its dry, poignant freshness is rounded by the scent of white musk and lilies. Passage d'Enfer is an artistic fragrance, created by Olivia Giacobetti in 1999, which pays homage to the Parisian offices of L'Artisan Parfumeur in the 1970s. It evokes images of cold cathedral walls and echoes of rituals and spells. Translucent lily and white musk sweeten the balsamic smoke of incense. Passage d'Enfer is also a wicked play on words, the symbolic 'passage of hell', a moment of passage between two worlds. The name may be dark and disturbing, but the fragrance itself is tranquil and contemplative. This provocative name, however, serves a dual purpose: a reference to this passage of millennia and also to the street in Paris with the same name where L'Artisan was originally based. For a moment, with the perfume Passage d'Enfer, one feels between heaven and hell, between soothing light and the flickers of fire.
Fragrance notes: Cedarwood, Frankincense, White Lily.
