Range designer perfumes of Pont des Arts Paris

Our exclusive perfumes collection…

Pont des Arts has decided to launch a limited edition range of designer fragrances aimed at customers who are highly demanding and who share our passion for rare scents and our values of luxury and elegance.

Both original and exclusive, these fragrances pay tribute to the grand traditions of French perfumery.  Each of these creations reflects the current trends of the art of perfume-making… but also those of the future, thus providing a subtle blend of modernism and tradition.

The finest ingredients have been selected for this range, most of them 100% natural and otherwise extremely rare or even exclusive. Each fragrance thus provides a blend of several dozen ingredients to create a unique scent. All offer discreet but long-lasting staying power.

An initial selection of three fragrances is currently available, providing a subtle balance that is representative of our brand experience, safe in the knowledge that at least one of the three will prove itself able to inconspicuously enhance your outward personality…

À ce soir – Pont des Arts

Oriental, balsamic, floral fragrance

«This fragrance À ce soir is like a ball of gold, first and foremost because of the presence of fairtrade sourced vanilla absolute; golden also because of the presence of balsamic notes such as benzoin, a slight trace of tolu and cinnamon in the top note. The final golden touch, almost amber, is delivered by the presence of a delicately caramelized note.

The heart produces unusual effects thanks to a blend of lentiscus absolute, narcissus absolute and white and yellow ylang-ylang, orchid and jasmin flowers. Vetiver is found in the top notes and runs vertically throughout the entire fragrance structure, providing a sleek and elegant woody feel. »

À chaque instant – Pont des Arts

Chypre, green, floral fragrance

« “À chaque instant is a richly voluptuous chypre fragrance, an olfactory family that is no longer a widely popular choice in the contemporary world of perfumery. There is however a renewed interest in the great chypre traditions of yesteryear, by means of unusual combinations of floral notes such as tuberose absolute, beeswax absolute, or hyacinth, blended with harmonies of patchouli, myrrh and oakmoss…

The spicy note of pink pepper, saffron and angelica, present in substantial doses, heightens this sense of duality by intensifying the striking contrasts.

The final touch is brought by the noble and pure root of vetiver which provides the framework of the olfactory structure. »

On s’était dit – Pont des Arts

Woody, spicy, floral, musky fragrance

«This fragrance On s’était dit is the fruit of a bold choice of ingredients that places a strong focus on sophistication and elegance. The aromatic citrus notes provide a refreshing coolness and a sense of intimacy, while caraway and cardamom offer a resolute, authentic feel. Woody and spicy notes provide character and stunning sensuality. Pepper and carrot seeds are truly exceptional raw materials with a range of facets that are extremely energizing, rich and voluptuous, giving this fragrance added sparkle and a real olfactory identity. On s’était ditis an audacious and incomparable fragrance, sensual and refined.

Bold and full of daring contrasts, it is a real statement of intent, with its very own personality, leaving a memorable trail in its wake; a truly genuine olfactory experience. »

Our perfume creators

To create these exceptional scents, Pont des Arts first summoned three teams of professional “Noses”, all well-renowned French and international experts in the world of perfumery and fragrance creation, two of whom were ultimately chosen for the launch of our first collection.

Taking what some might see as an unusual approach, as well as presenting our range of perfumes we have taken the editorial decision to also introduce you to their creators. In this way, we believe that you will be able to recognize and appreciate the specialist know-how and the craftwork that has led to the creation of our first range of exclusive scents.

Each fragrance is the result of lengthy exchanges during the creative phase, taking into account the needs, expectations and sensory emotions of each and every protagonist, while always retaining a strong joint focus on the key values of quality, originality and exclusivity.

Three brand-new fragrances, bearing names that are totally in line with the guidelines of our initial concept, come together to form this range: « À chaque instant », a chypre, green and floral fragrance created by Bertrand Duchaufour« On s’était dit », a woody floral and musky creation created by Vincent Grandjon… and « À ce soir », an oriental, balsamic and floral fragrance by Bertrand Duchaufour

Arousing emotions, sharing a sense of excellence …
Bertrand Duchaufour, perfume creator

A free and independent spirit, Bertrand Duchaufour is a passionate man, always looking to go a step further in terms of innovation. For Bertrand, a fragrance is a genuine artistic creation that must always arouse sensory emotions. He enjoys playing on contrasts and contradictions, his creations thus seeming somewhat paradoxical, constantly seeking to attain an elusive perfect balance.

A true artist at heart, Bertrand’s creativity finds expression in several different forms, such as drawing, painting and photography… He draws his inspiration from his travels far and wide, to Bhutan and Yemen, Turkey, India and Africa… His fragrance creations bring the very best out of the high quality materials that he prefers to use, essences such as davana, iris, oud, mimosa and osmanthus, powerful yet simple at the same time.

A chance encounter…

« I immediately bought in to the project outlined to me by Pont des Arts, chiefly because its two creators wanted to revive the traditions of French “haute parfumerie”. Pont des Arts is also the story of how they first met each other, and now of how our paths also crossed. I am particularly delighted to play a part in the creation of this prestigious new brand which undoubtedly enhances the status of our profession.»

On s’était dit

A keen scientist, qualified doctor of biology and health sciences, engineer, professor at the École Supérieure du Parfum, curious about everything to do with plants and flowers, a genuine “botany buff”, Vincent Grandjon has always had a passion for fragrances, scents, aromas, perfumery and cosmetics; a passion that he takes enormous pleasure in sharing with others, passing on what he has learned.

He travels the world in search of new high quality ingredients to work with, drawing inspiration from nature, from plant life and from minerals, but also from the different people that he meets, seeking to translate unique sensations and emotions into his fragrant creations.

A chance encounter…

« What I immediately liked about the Pont des Arts project was meeting and getting to know its creators, talking about our mutual passion for fragrances; what also appealed to me was their somewhat audacious desire to create magnificent new products in a sector that was considered as being closed, where everything seemed to have already been said and done. It was largely because of their intuition and their belief that I did not think twice about accepting their invitation to collaborate on this project.»
