The air is so thick with humidity it is like breathing in molasses and it’s a wonder the cicadas have the energy to buzz. In this torpor, perfume can feel overwhelming. But if you’re bored with the usual citrus splashes, the ever-inventive, never literal Pierre Guillaumecomposed three transporting, under-the-radar scents for Parfumerie Generale in 2006, that hum like a cool bass line in the heat. And I’ll bet you a bottle of eau de cologne most of you don’t own them.
Thanks to the generosity of Pierre Guillaume and Parfumerie Generale, we have a reader’s choice of a 30 ml bottle of Yuzu ab Irato, Hyperessence Matale or Jardins de Kerylos for a registered reader anywhere in the world (you must register click on the link here.
