Charna Ethier of Provicdence Perfume Co. seems to have something fascinating up her sleeve at all times; that’s a given. In the early January snow a bevy of inveterate sniffers. Vientiane.The capital city of Laos, known to its people as both The City of Sandalwood and The City of the Moon sidles along a bend of the Mekong River. Now the economic center of modern-day Laos, it was once heavily forested with sandalwood, hence yielding the inspiration for Charna Ethier of Providence Perfume Co. newest perfume. So many cultures have converged surrounding Vientiane throughout the years – Thai, Burmese, Cambodian, Vietnamese, Chinese – and they are fleshed out via the perfumer’s employment of unusual and evocative materials. According to Charna, the genesis of Providence Perfume Co. Vientiane was unusual for a natural perfumer. She said “I have a customer for whom I previously created bespoke perfumes. I’m no longer able to do this as my time is very limited. Her persistent request is that I create a natural take on Bois Farine by L’Artisan Perfumeur.
