Anatole Lebreton is the Odilon Redon of modern perfumery. His Parfums de Liberte show an unfettered but disciplined creativity: daring but not edgy, thoughtfully crafted, quirky and achingly beautiful. Inspired by the carnelian comb of a young woman in Art Nouveau master Alphonse Mucha’s poster,Anatole Lebreton Cornaline is a sinuous, sloe-eyed fragrance that defies categorization: a modern floral wrapped around a vintage oriental, sparked with geranium, peach juice and a just a dash of red hots. As it dries down, Anatole Breton Cornaline gets quietly sultry. Benzoin nestles into the vanilla, and the ylang cuddles right up with the orris and geranium. I never would have thought that interweaving flowers with such completely difference fragrance profiles – spicy-leafy, anisic-powdery, fleshy-sweet – could have worked, but Lebreton laces them together with such charm and lightness that this strange bouquet becomes harmonious and quite wonderful. One of the best premieres of Esxence 2018.
