La Manufacture – Cologne Rare
A breath of bergamot and basil
Under the intense sun, one seeks out the scarce shade beneath the dungeon's stone vault. You can sprinkle yourself with a spirited freshness.
Bergamot collides with basil, peel meets leaf. Notes full of character cross steel in an exchange of green... The green tartness of rhubarb yields to the somber green of patchouli and vetiver, giving rise to full-bodied base notes. A breath of coolness lingers, weaving among heightened wood notes.
"I chose bergamot from Italy for its lavender and pepper undertones. The basil from Egypt, with its singular anise note, makes the transition from citrus to green heart. The green is darkened by a smoky-leather note specific to vetiver from Haiti.

The Hand Made Spirit
La Manufacture, founded by Bruno Truchon Bartès, is a workshop without borders for artisan-artists who work with and transform their raw materials while taking inspiration from art, emotions and personal experience.
What gives La Manufacture's fragrances their elegance and depth is the poetry of the past and the meticulous moments spent concentrating on the raw materials.
Bruno calls on sculptors, porcelain-makers, mold-makers, master perfumers, candle-makers and glass-makers with a passion for their craft, who work to his standards in terms of aesthetics and refinement. He harnesses their combined talents to create a luxury known as simplicity.
The ingredients for the fragrances in the Colognes Essentielles collection are selected with the utmost of care. Measured out precisely and with emotion by exacting master perfumers with a passion for quality, they are used to produce perfume concentrates in Grasse, the cradle of French perfume-making.
