I’m a big fan of fragrances in the amber family, and I wanted to create an amber perfume with a fresh, free-spirited feeling. So I blended a classic amber accord (vanilla, benzoin, labdanum, etc.), anchored it with some gorgeous aged patchouli, then contrasted it with lots of citrus and cool green floral notes. The result was Haute Bohème. It has an exuberance mixed with a glowing ambery vibe that seems to light up everything around it. It makes me happy whenever I smell it. Let me know what you think! — Claudia
