A floral woody fragrance with a highly distinctive identity, Santal Précieux is above all a fragrance of essences. Inspired by CARON’s heritage, it features a duo of rare and precious essences that are a favourite of CARON. Luxurious rose absolute encounters an extraordinary Fairtrade sandalwood.
From Australia and New Caledonia, two superb sandalwood essences lend this fragrance its ultra-contemporary character. Tempered by the amber notes of cistus labdanum, the sandalwood reveals its creamy facets through a warm milk note. The rose, enhanced by the spicy accents of elemi and pink peppercorn, envelops it in a fresh 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!
La Collection Merveilleuse wears its name well. 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.
At CARON, gender exists only as a barrier to be torn down! CARON gladly defies archetypes.
A tribute to the trailblazers of yesterday and today, Santal Précieux is an original, cutting-edge fragrance that, just like them, likes to shake things up. An ode to independent men and women who are not afraid to show their emotions. In brief, a resolutely modern perfume.
DID YOU KNOW?
Ever wanted to make sandalwood essence? You’ll need plenty of patience! In New Caledonia, where this rare tree still grows, you will have to wait between 25 to 30 years before a freshly planted specimen can be processed. Then, you’ll need one ton of heartwood – the so-called “perfect” wood found in the centre of the trunk – to obtain just 50kg of essential oil. Now you know why this raw material is one of the most precious in the perfumer’s palette.
