Description

Description

To transcribe the white flower facet of the mahogany flower, two jasmine absolutes, a fleshy and sensual “open flower”, and a sambac with fruity accents, blossom alongside an ylang ylang absolute. To convey the green and flavourful facet of the flower, a burst of exotic and invigorating notes are invited. The crisp freshness of starfruit and juicy watermelon are blended with essence of magnolia flower. This exotic, just-ripe fruity sensation is enriched by tangy notes of blackcurrant and a green mango accord. Belle de Niassa is a powerful, luminous soliflore in the tradition of CARON’s white flower perfumes.

Story

Story

Belle de Niassa tells the story of an unforgettable olfactory emotion. In the heart of the Niassa plains in northern Mozambique, it is the peak of the dry season. Suddenly the air is charged with the opulent, captivating, solar scent of white flowers. This fragrance is emanating from the mahogany flower. Unpredictable, its blossom announces the arrival of the rain. Ephemeral, it reserves its scent for a select group, those lucky enough to enjoy it at the very moment it blooms. To discover it and appreciate all its facets requires a knowledgeable guide and a lot of patience.

Did you know?

The mahogany flower grows in Africa on the Afzelia Quanzensis, referring to the Cuanza River in Angola, where the tree was first discovered. Sheltered in dark brown beans, its seeds have a bright red tip that hornbills, large wild birds with orange beaks, simply love. It is thus very rare to find a seed that is still intact. Discovering one with its red part is a sign of good luck. Hence its nickname, Lucky Bean Tree.

The creative duo

The creative duo

Ariane de Rothschild has retained a particular attachment to Africa after spending her childhood travelling through several continents. Its fabulous fragrances have always nurtured and inspired her. In 2019, she invited Jean Jacques, CARON’s in-House perfumer, to the province of Niassa in northern Mozambique, to discover the opulent fragrance of the mahogany flower. Belle de Niassa testifies to the openness and curiosity of the CARON creative duo. And it tells the story of this quest in a stunning natural setting. To breath in this unique scent in perfumery. And then to recreate it, and relive, intact, this emotion.

Simply lovely

I wear a fragrance every day and this quickly became one of my favorites, along with Caron’s Fleur de Rocaille. They are both lovely. They are not easy to find in the US, so had it imported.

Étonnamment : j'aime

Je me sens existante, vivante, accueillie et réconciliée avec des parfums boisé, végétaux, épicé, chypré ((ex : tabac noir ....wouah!). Étonnamment, alors que je n'aime pas les parfums plus floraux, j'ai beaucoup apprécié Belle de Niassa, sans savoir pourquoi !!
