Kilim reveals itself full of surprises, playing with the light that illuminates its notes appearing over the hours.

Lavinia, from the blog Les Plus Beaux Parfums

As far as she can remember, Lavinia has been passionate about perfume. On her blog Les Plus Beaux Parfums, she shares her (huge) private collection and discoveries. She likes to dissect each note and each raw material of a fragrance to understand the evolution of the different ingredients on the skin. This collector thus gives life to her own interpretation of a perfume.

Lavinia recently gave in to the pure perfume kilim, our highly concentrated oriental patchouli. Aboard kilim, an Oriental rug whose ancestral know-how inspired us the name of this fragrance, she perceives sweet and powdery notes. The patchouli is here rather fruity than earthy, and Lavinia is transported by notes of apricot that strike her imagination.

According to her, kilim is a perfect perfume for a beautiful autumn day, which sticks to her skin from the early morning to the evening, and is now part of her Carrément Belle collection!

Do you think of oriental perfumes as being opulent and heady ? Here is another view of the Orient inspired by softer colours. First made by the nomads of the former Persian Empire, now used both as floor covering and mural decoration in the West, a kilim is a light, flat, mainly woollen carpet, woven like a tapestry. One of its most interesting features, abrash, only appears any longer in vintage carpets, dyed with vegetable dye-stuff. As a result, each colour has various shades and appears dappled. For Carrément Belle — a French perfumery, born in 1988 in the South of France, but expanding around the world since 1993 —, Frank Jammes imagined a perfume, named Kilim with notes of flowers and fruit, veiled by soft, fuzzy apricot and Indonesian patchouli. The overall effect is quite abstract. Aldehydes, naturally contained in orange peel and terpenes, dim the notes of Egyptian geranium, clove leaves, ylang, synthetic jasmine and lily of the valley, only to let them dart out and soar unexpectedly. The fruity, apple like patchouli underlines all this, along with Indonesian vetiver, amber and muscs. Kilim hence gives you a lasting aura rather than a huge sillage and is perfectly suited to office wear. One more thing : it costs half as much as fragrances from well known brands and contains natural ingredients, as well as the usual synthetic jasmine, muguet, amber, musk and fruit accords. Made in Grasse, this fragrance works very well on a warm autumn day. My full weekly review is online !
