Parfumeurs du Monde - 5 100% natural perfumes
Parfumeurs du Monde is a perfume brand that is found exclusively in Jovoy in the UK and was born from the collaboration of 6 passionate perfumers, lovers of natural aromatic ingredients.
Creating a 100% natural perfume is complex, and Isabelle Gellé, Perrine Scandel, Thierry Bernard, Michel Roudnitska, Jean-Claude and Eric Gigodot have decided to take up this challenge and partnered to create a 100% natural perfume collection, presented in the form of 5 scented travel diaries.
« Let yourself come upon these olfactory notes which will develop throughout the day and unleash with your skin for a perfect and unique harmony»
With this collection, Parfumeurs du Monde also strive to create a positive environmental, social and economic impact in the producing countries of natural raw materials by donating a percentage of their sales to Coeur de Forêt while also sourcing some of their raw materials from the Organic and Fair Trade channels, developed by the organization. Coeur de Forêt is a Paris-based NGO established in 2005 which supports small producers for the rehabilitation and protection of forests in Bolivia, Cameroon, Indonesia, Madagascar and Peru.
Tundzha by Jean-Claude & Eric Gigodot
Head Notes: Lavender, Mandarin, Grapefruit
Heart Notes: Geranium, Rose, Ylang-Ylang
Base Notes: Incense, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vanilla
Rich, emotional and romantic, delicate rose dances away with lively citruses and aromatic lavender before it settles down to a slow dance with noble sandalwood and sweet vanilla. The addition of incense and patchouli bring the scent closer to the skin and provide extra layers of aromatic earthy notes.
Tsingy by Thierry Bernard
Head Notes: Pink Berries, Lime
Heart Notes: Frangipani Tree, Ginger, Mandarin, Vanilla, Ylang-Ylang
Base Notes: Basil, Elemi, Patchouli, Tonka Bean, Vetiver
Inspired by Madagascar at sun dawn with the mist slowing clearing, this olfactory tale reveals colors, odors and emotions of the magnificent scented land. Ylang-ylang and frangipani dominate this fragrance sweetened by vanilla; a rich, bold white floral much like the landscape of Madagascar that gets a dose of earthiness thanks to patchouli and vetiver.
Aqua Nativa by Master Perfumer Michel Roudnitska is a ceremonial perfume used in healing rituals by the Shipibos indian tribe of Amazonia.

Head Notes: Basil, Mint, Grapefruit
Heart Notes: Cinnamon, Clove, Geranium, Orange, Petit-Grain, Ylang-Ylang
Base Notes: Patchouli, Vanilla, Vetiver, Palo Santo
An earthy and herbal scent very fitting for a ceremonial scent; it really does bring images of deep forests and connects you with nature. Herbal, spicy and aromatic it elevates you to a spiritual level as you breathe in and as the earthy / woody base notes slowly appear a sense of re-connection with your earthy self takes over.
Izwe by Perrine Scandel is a natural fragrance that represents old and actual identity of South Africa
Head Notes: Almond, Grapefruit
Heart Notes: Geranium, Jasmine, Rose, Sage, Davana
Base Notes: Blackcurrant, Labdanum, Patchouli, Tuberose
Very sensual scent; it starts very earthy and yet sparkling with blooming flowers and rich herbal undertones. This fragrance really does take you on a journey of emotions based on the many colorful landscape of South Africa.
Kashi by Isabelle Gellé is a personal interpretation of patchouli, symbol of pashmina and elegance of the Indian women.
Head Notes: Hibiscus, Iris, Black Pepper
Heart Notes: Jasmine, Osmanthus, Patchouli, Liquorice
Base Notes: Amber, Musk, Peach, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Ylang-Ylang
This is not your average patchouli fragrance; a tiny spray is enough to envelop you in a thick cloud of smoky, earthy, herbal patchouli. With the assistance of the white flowers, a blooming dimension reveals itself while juicy peaches and vanilla add a fruity sweetness.
All 5 fragrances are very rich, long lasting and reveal a unique character on the skin as the naturals reveal their complex characters. If you visit Jovoy these fragrances are a must try!
