The family-run company founded in 1998 by Virginie and Antoine Roux launched their perfume and cosmetics line Au Pays de la Fleur d’Oranger in 2005/2006. The new collection Les Inedits, created by Jean Claude Gigodot, was announced at this year's perfume fair Esxence in Milan.

This line is born out of a vision of reviving the pure traditional essences of Provence, through the creation of natural, luxurious perfumes, presented in elegant and modern bottles. The collection includes five fragrances: three for women (Figue Fruitée, Tubéreuse Rosée, Jasmin Rêvé), one unisex (Begamote boisée) and one for men (Lavande Ombrée) in the concentration of Eau de Parfum.

FIGUE FRUITÉE Review

Head:   fruity notes, fig fruit
Heart: green, cedar, walnut
Base: leather, musk, sweet

There was nothing inauspicious when I took a vial of the new Au Pays de la Fleur d’Oranger’s scent, Figue Fruitée (from the Les Inédits collection that was announced at Esxence 2013). Neither an exotic combination nor an unusual note, but with the first sniff I lost the vestiges of the hardly-found heartsease.

The scent is tragic as a thick red curtain of La Scala or Bolshoi. It’s picky and desperate. And this despair is totally inevitable. The first notes don’t remain green calm fig leaves. It’s a pulp, over matured flesh, sweet and fed with the fervent heat of the sun that it wants to share with every passerby.

This fruit is like a solitary matured woman who every single moment is ready to meet somebody to give the vitality that burns her from within. But still she needs to share her nights with obscurity and the sultriness of the boudoir.

And a moment comes when this abundant life so violent and so needless crashes the fruit and it rushes into the arms of calm grass’s freshness. It loses all the heat and sweetness, fading slowly with a wet woody scent, dissolving in a light musky cloudlet and going down to the ground, as the ground is always ready to mercifully accept all the castaways.
 

Another fragrance by Au Pays de la Fleur d’Oranger:

The Neroli blanc line includes three versions in different concentrations about one of the most praised notes in perfumery: orange blossom. The fragrances (Cologne, Eau de Parfum and Intense Eau de Parfum) are not the same fragrance composition. Their notes differ in order to enhance the beauty of the raw material in different concentrations. For example, in the Cologne, orange blossom is illuminated by grapefruit, while in Eaux de Parfum the perfumer, Jean-Claude Gigodot, enhanced the part of candied fruity notes. You can easily guess by the color of the liquid (which is natural) the concentration of each fragrance:
