    Bouvardia was an iconic 20th century De Laire base of citrus with orange flower and jasmine nuances. Beloved by Francois Coty and used skillfully in L'Origan (at 0.8%), it is now available to the market for the first time in decades.

    It hints at the highly scented notes of both flowers and due to its somewhat ambiguous nature blends beautifully with many other floral materials. It is a wonderful nuancer for top notes based on bergamot and it is beautifully at home in oriental types. 

    This early De Laire base is more of a citrus top note base than a heart base, making it a rather unique product.

    Appearance: Yellow liquid
    Longevity: lasts 168 hours on a smelling strip

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    One of my favorite bases I've purchased from Jamie. I've tested it in a variety of different contexts but especially love it with amber materials.

    Sweet, citrusy, floral

    This was unexpected! I was kind of anticipating a heavier floral base, but what I found was a lovely, toppy scent that provided the lift that things like neroli and petitgrain give, but smelling more unique.

    Don't use neroli, use this

    If you need to give your fragrance a shiny orange flower top not, I suggest considering using this instead of classic orange flower materials or accords - compared to Fleur D'Oranger, this is more citrusy, and just more happy.

    A really beautiful and ethereal citrus floral top note. Very noticeable even in trace amounts. I have read about this old school floral base for years and am so excited to find it available for use to us hobby perfumists. Knowing this material was used in perfume legends like Coty L'Origan is just amazing. Quality work by Mr. Frater.
