Embark on a majestic crossing of the Bosphorus to discover breathtaking Istanbul.
Master Perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour returned from his Turkish journey with watercolours, sketches, photographs and Traversée du Bosphore, a mysterious Eau de Parfum, capturing the scent of a languorous day exploring the narrow streets and influences of Istanbul. L'Artisan Parfumeur invites you to cross the majestic Bosphorus River and explore this most mystical of cities, caught between East and West. This vision opens with apples, tulips and just a hint of spices. The creamy iris is worked in contrast with a tobacco note. A delicate waft of rose and pistachio recalls the suave aroma of Turkish delight. Then an unexpected burst of warm and animalic leather, that scorches the air around the tanneries, takes us as the musk embraces us. Loose yourself in this "Oriental fairytale".
