Description The composition of Aedes de Venustas signature fragrance is a world unto itself. There is no trace of the traditional fragrance pyramid. The construction is round, luxurious, voluptuous and addictive. The scents chypre character is pierced at its center with the ephemeral green freshness of the rhubarb accord—the axis around which the fragrance revolves—like the wearer emanating its memorable sillage. Embodied and embodying; Aedes de Venustas signature fragrance is the past, present and future of perfumery in simultaneous revolution.
Perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour describes the perfume as a game of supports in an unexpected, even improbably olfactory architecture because the green effect increases while the heavy dark resinous incense and chypre accord is largely deceasing and getting more abstract. On an interesting note many of the ingredients in Aedes de Venustas signature fragrance have been sourced by Bertrand Duchaufour. The ominpresent vetiver is from Madagascar where Mr. Duchaufour himself traveled to meet the farmers and made sure it complied with fair trade practices.
