« The Mediterranean marked my childhood and continues to have a certain influence on me to the point that I like to go there regularly to unwind. Perhaps because it borders three continents, Europe and notably France where I live, Asia where I went to study, and Africa, where some of my roots are.
For Collection Azur, I wanted to share some of my most beautiful memories around the Mediterranean so dear to my heart. Magical moments borrowed from olfactory landscapes so particular. With the first two creations, Citrus Riviera and Sel d'Argent, I invite you on a first journey between Corsica and the French Riviera. »
David Benedek, founder of BDK Parfums
Citrus Riviera pays homage to the landscape of the Cap d’Antibes in the South of France. The memory takes place in a white house nestled in the greenery. Citrusy, the perfume foregrounds notes of mandarin and lemon, while base notes of tonka bean and of white musks provide the fragrance with its sensuality.
This ozonic perfume with notes of salt is reminiscent of skin warmed by the sun after a late afternoon swim. Sel d’Argent translates serenity of body and mind into green notes of galbanum and white musks. This fragrance expresses nostalgia for a savored moment spent sprawled on the rocks of a Corsican beach, in the shade of the maquis.
