BDK Parfums has launched an Extrait version of its best-selling Gris Charnel fragrance introduced in 2019. The French niche brand is also adding to its Collection Azur with Villa Néroli this spring.
French fragrance brand BDK Parfums has unveiled two new additions to its fragrance collection: Gris Charnel Extrait and Villa Néroli. Both fragrances come in BDK’s statement square-shaped bottles (Zignago Brosse), which are lacquered blue for Villa Néroli and gray for Gris Charnel Extrait. Topped with zamak caps (Segede), the bottles feature hot-stamped labels (L’Atelier Darmon) that wrap across two sides. The coffret (MPO) of Gris Charnel Extrait is sheathed an embossed and silver hot-stamped sleeve.
Gris Charnel Extrait, a woody amber concentrated at 30%, was composed by Mathilde Bijaoui (Mane) and blends patchouli, sandalwood, tonka bean and vanilla. It follows the launch of eau de parfum Gris Charnel in 2019, which has since become a best-seller for the brand.
“I didn’t just want to launch a more intense version of the original,” comments BDK Parfums founder David Benedek. “The DNA of Gris Charnel is recognizable, but there’s something extra with the addition of vanilla and patchouli.”
Villa Néroli is a floral, woody amber eau de parfum crafted by Symrise perfumer Alexandra Carlin containing notes of neroli, petit-grain, orange blossom and vetiver.
The perfume hitting the market in June as the third opus in Collection Azur costs €160 for 100ml. Gris Charnel Extrait, meanwhile, part of BDK Parfums’ Collection Parisienne, retails at €240 for 100ml and launched this April.
