Natural Perfumes

Over the past decade, Nicolas de Barry has dedicated himself entirely to the composition of perfumes that are entirely and authentically natural.

 

For the lovers of high quality natural products, Nicolas de Barry has composed perfumes that are 100% natural. He has travelled the world to choose his raw materials to ensure that only the highest quality and the rarest essences will be used in his compositions: agarwood (oud) from the south of Thailand; the famous ‘rose de Grasse’ (extremely rare because only 3 hectares are cultivated today); Ylang-Ylang from Jean Paul Guerlain’s ancient plantation in Mayotte … All of these products are sought for with just one purpose: to provide his clients with  the very best essences in the world, whatever the price!

 

Nicolas de Barry’s commitment: “Being wholly responsible for the creation and traditional fabrication of the exceptional perfumes that make up this collection, I guarantee that I have personally chosen the natural raw materials used and as such, that they can be qualified as being the rarest and the most beautiful essences in the world”. “I know my suppliers and I know exactly where my products come from”. “I go on site to verify their conformity to ensure that I only use the very best absolutes (rose, jasmine, tuberose ...) for my creations. Nevertheless, I have to forsake the organic label that does not allow them because of the traditional methods of extraction”.

 

We offer, by order only, the following perfumes that are traditionally prepared at a concentration corresponding to “Elic” (15%) but it is possible to order another concentration or just the pure concentrate.

 

Our 100% natural perfumes, composed following ancestral methods, are not necessarily in conformity with the regulation. Depending on the wanted concentration, doses change.  These perfumes on request are therefore sale as "artistic perfumes" : beyond olfactory pleasure, it is up to you to use it the way you prefer. 

Our natural fragrances are available in three formats:

Prestige format: 150 mL in a Murano glass bottle engraved with 24-carat fine gold by the House of Gigli in Florence.

35 mL and 70 mL in "Atelier" bottles

( we can also order a "kit" of 7 of our natural perfumes; see in our shop : SAMPLES )

Our balms are offered in solid perfumes, in small 20ml boxes, in a 40% concentration.

Ambre Interdit: Amber is one of the mythical raw materials of perfumery. It is produced in the stomach of sperm whales that collectors pick up in secret on the beaches. It was formerly attributed to perfumes from ancient Atlantis ... Amber has always been more expensive than gold.

Now banned in perfumery (though the whale is not put to death for their amber, he spits these stones out of itself ...), we present a 100% natural fragrance , so off of trade, which has 60% amber  that Nicolas de Barry made himself with a ball of amber , which has been macerated for a quarter of a century.

Limited to 10 numbered and autographed bottles series for fans of "perfume lovers " ...

Rose de Grasse: The very famous “rose de mai” from Grasse. The reputation of the whole region and the perfumery profession is atttributed to "rose de mai" since the 17th century. There are only 3 hectares left in a very confidential production. Nicolas de Barry proposed a very pure version with almost one third of “rose de mai “ from Grasse absolute blended with notes of winter bergamot from Calabria – the most refined of all the bergamots – and natural ambergris.

Néroli d'Espagne: The essence of néroli comes from the distillation of the bigaradier flower (bitter orange) which grows in abundance in Spain and in Tunisia. It is frequently used in confectionery and in pharmacopoeia. Its hespéridée facet allows the composition of prestigious Eau de Colognes. The néroli owes its name to Princess Orsini, known under the name of "Princess of Néroli".

Osmanthus de Chine: This Chinese flower delivers a fruity-floral scent which is popular among perfumers today. For nearly three centuries, osmanthus flowers were used to perfume pastries, tea and wine in Asia. Osmanthus is also one of the main components, together with the rose, of the famous "Parfum de Canton". It can be used in a variety of harmonies with only one drawback : it is one of the most expensive marketed products.

Rose de Crimée: A famous ancient rose produced in Crimea and Bulgaria, used in perfumes made for the russian Imperial Family. While it was maintained and developed during the era of the USSR, it remained relatively unknown to occidental perfumery. More powdery than the Bulgarian or Turkish rose, it gives off an old-fashioned note that is very attractive for lovers of ancient perfumes. The composition that Nicolas de Barry proposes is made up of more than 40% of this rose complemented with hints of sandalwood, patchouli and a fresh note of winter bergamot.

Ylang de Mayotte: A great lover of natural raw materials, the famous perfumer Jean Paul Guerlain acquired a property in Mayotte in the Indian Ocean where he established a plantation of Ylang-Ylang. He managed to make the best Ylang-Ylang in the world but in a very limited quantity. Even though he sold his plantation, the plantation still remains. This very seductive, heady-fragranced flower emits powerful and fresh notes. The perfume offered associates Ylang-Ylang from Jean Paul Guelain’s plantation with delicate notes of bourbon vanilla.

Australian Sandalwood: Indian sandalwood being very scarce and altered, the Australian “Mount Romance” project offers a sandalwood that is not only ecological but also a great example of fair trade as it is produced in partnership with the local aborigines. As a result of research, different types of sandalwood have been produced by oleoresins' extraction that give off caramel-like aromas or even animal-like notes. Associated with the fragrant Chinese osmanthus, this sandalwood perfume is lightened by notes of bergamot and lemon from Calabria and Sicily.

Jasmin Sambac de Guilin: In the south of China, two marvelous fragranced flowers are produced: osmathus and jasmine sambac. In ancient China, jasmine had a special type of aura: it was considered to be a symbol of purity. Olfactively, Chinese jasmine is less heady than the Egyptian or Indian variety but it is lighter and purer. In this perfume it is associated with a bouquet of citrus fruit scents.
