Combining the gems of our heritage with very contemporary creations, every last detail illustrates the overwhelming creativity, daring spirit, and generosity of our House. Refillable, stackable and customizable, the O bottle is our emblem. Free to be different, La Collection Merveilleuse is the most beautiful expression of French Haute Parfumerie by CARON.
A floral woody fragrance with a very distinctive identity, Santal Précieux is above all a fragrance of essences. Inspired by CARON's origins, it features a duo of rare and precious essences that the House is known for. A luxurious rose absolute meets an extraordinary fair-trade sandalwood
From Australia and New Caledonia, two superb sandalwood essences give this fragrance its ultra-contemporary character. Rounded by the amber notes of cistus labdanum, the wood reveals its creamy facets through a note of warm milk. The rose, enhanced by the spicy accents of elemi and pink berry, wraps it in a fresh and luminous floral breath.
In this radical composition, traditional roles are reversed: the flower becomes masculine and the wood feminine. The fluidity of gender, in all its splendour.
This Santal Précieux is a jewel of audacity and creativity!
At CARON, gender exists only as a barrier to be torn down! The House has been happily defying archetypes. Santal Précieux is a tribute to those pioneers of yesterday and today, an ode to independent women and the men who are receptive to their emotions. In short, it’s a fragrance for modern times.
DID YOU KNOW?
Want to produce sandalwood essence? You’re going to need a lot of patience! In New Caledonia, where this now-rare tree is still grown, you have to wait 25 to 30 years before a freshly planted specimen can be processed. Next, you’ll need one tonne of heartwood – the “perfect” wood at the centre of the trunk – to obtain 50 kg of essential oil. Now you know why this raw material is one of the most precious in the perfumer’s palette.
