In the 10th century, an Arabic author named amber as one of North Africa’s most important products. It is said that Louis XV used amber to season his favourite dishes, and Queen Elizabeth I used it as a fragrance for her gloves. Its complex scent is a combination of earth, camphor, incense and tobacco, with hints of musk.

The scent of musk is said to be an aphrodisiac. This animal ingredient has a sensuous, woody fragrance and «sings the transports of the senses and the soul,» as Charles Baudelaire wrote. Once worn mostly by men, musk leaves a virile trace and is now used widely in luxury candles.

This majestic tree with a fragrant wood comes from the Middle East. The Egyptians used its essence to embalm the mummies. Cedar gives off a characteristic newspaper scent with soft, woody notes

Jardins D’Écrivain fragrances tell olfactory stories connected to both places and disposition. They evoke humor, attitude, intimacy...
