more perfume details
Batucada - A sparkling and sensual fragrance. The fruit of a collaboration between two perfumers, Karine Vinchon in Grasse and Elisabeth Maier in Sao Paulo, Batucada is a stunning celebration of Brazil. Vibrant from the outset, a bolt of energy infects us with the beat of frenetic samba rhythms. A burst of lime, cachaça and fresh mint then appears, intoxicating our senses, much like Brazil's signature cocktail, the Caïpirinha. Exotic scents come into their own as the middle notes of the fragrance reveal Tiaré and ylang ylang flowers, recalling the heady perfume of sun cream. A sea salt note, so reminiscent of holidays, purifies the senses with its delicate fragrance, as if we were on the famous Ipanema beach. Finally, a skin accord comes through to the fore, just like the seductive scent of the samba dancers' skin, emanating a powerful and addictive sensuality.

The choice between wearing a scent that introduces itself to strangers and one that's detectable only in an embrace is a very personal one.
L'Artisan Parfumeur Batucada is an ode to Brazil, with a lime and vetiver cocktail that wears close to the skin.

Notes from Abroad

Ipanema - L'Artisan Parfumeur Batucada Eau de Parfum, $145. ... Sao Paulo-based nose Elisabeth Meier recalled the festive beaches of Ipanema for L'Artisan Parfumeur's Batucada (named for a style of samba). To capture the Brazilian spirit, she blended ylang-ylang flowers -- evocative of suntan lotion -- with davana oil, which smells like caipirinhas.
