The story behind the fragrance, from The Perfume Lover book by Denyse Beaulieu:

"I am in Seville, standing under a bitter orange tree in full bloom in the arms of Román, the black-clad Spanish boy who is not yet my lover. Since sundown, we’ve been watching the religious brotherhoods in their pointed caps and habits thread their way across the old Moorish town in the wake of gilded wood floats bearing statues of Christ and the Virgin Mary. This is the Madrugada, the longest night of Holy Week, and the whole city has poured into the streets: the processions will go on until the dawn sky is streaked with hunting swallows. In the tiny white-washed plaza in front of the church, wafts of lavender cologne rise from the tightly pressed bodies. As altar boys swing their censers, throat-stinging clouds of sizzling resins – humanity’s millennia-old message to the gods – cut through the fatty honeyed smell of the penitents’ beeswax candles.

Under the silver-embroidered velvet of her dais, the Madonna, crystal tears on her cheek, tilts her head towards the spicy white lilies and carnations tumbling from her float. She is being carried into the golden whorls of a baroque chapel, smoothly manoeuvred in and out, in and out, in and out – they say the bearers get erections as they do this – while Román’s hand runs down my black lace shift and up my thigh to tangle with my garter-belt straps. His breath on my neck smells of blond tobacco and the manzanilla wine we’ve been drinking all night – here in Seville, Holy Week is a pagan celebration: resurrection is a foregone conclusion and there is no need to mourn or repent. As the crowd shifts to catch a last sight of the float before the chapel doors shut behind it, the church exhales a cold old-stone gust. I am in the pulsing, molten-gold heart of Seville, thrust into her fragrant flesh, and there is no need for Román to take me to bed at dawn: he’s already given me the night."

Seville a l'aube was launched in 2012. The nose behind this fragrance is Bertrand Duchaufour.

Seville a l'aube Fragrance Reviews

Colin Maillard
Colin Maillard

Full, rich, round, cloying accord of waxy resinous vanilla in Duchaufour's opulent gourmand style. Which here is however not really played well for me, I find the composition more close to a nauseating mess wth a weird evolution – and personally I totally miss like half of the ingredients which are supposed to be here. I don't know where lies the problem exactly (a gallon of benzoin?) but I surely do not like this – but I guess that if you are into Duchaufour's style, than on the contrary you may like it.

So much hype around this, mainly self-hype and I was disappointed. I tried it many times, always expecting the magic to happen, but nothing.
It smells so cloying without any grace. It doesn't smell bad, but expectation was too high.
The note list is simply beautiful. I wish I could have a perfume made with same notes, but real ones.
This is perhaps the problem I have with this perfume: expecting too much.
Well, quite a pricey "not too much" from a niche brand.
It smells like many thick florals made with orange blossom (chemical) and thick honey notes, quite a clichè lately.
Not bad in a stinky way, but it doesn't enfold to high-vibe floral.
L'Occitane Neroli smells is a more gracious bomb.
On my skin Seville à l'Aube never settles to anything more grateful and graceful, only a thick oily glomp of harsh honey and some orange smell.
I didn't read the book, but I've been to Seville, a beautiful magical city. It deserves better perfume.

I read the book cover to cover, and was overjoyed to learn the name of Denyse's fragrance. I ordered a sample and awaited its arrival with great anticipation. Today I sampled it for the first time. What a letdown. It smells like the flowers I loved as a child, called Four O'clocks. Just watered down and not so great. There are better florals out there. Seek them out. This one is a misstep.

I expected a heavy tobacco note as most probably would since it's unisex. It's been on me for about 5 hours with no trace of tobacco. I get the orange blossom/honey/benzion accord with a slight floral touch. It is done in a modern way but not FB worthy. I don't get a lot of projection but I do like it and would consider it a safe scent. No wow factor. 6/10

This fragrance is a success in many ways, it certainly is a night in a tropical garden when the oranges and white florals are in bloom. Not at all sweet and not an indole hammer it takes me back to nights on the beach in my youth when the air was heavy with the notes that fill Seville a L'Aube.

I think I like the balances it strikes the most, never veering into extremes that orange in all its forms in fragrance can take. Soft, sensual and thankfully tenacious it is definitely something to apply when you need uplifting. I don't like the majority of Duchafour's fragrances, but this is a winner! Just bought FB

For me as a lover of orange blossom scents, this was actuallu really intriguing. On my skin it starts off with a pretty heavy orange blossom incense with a whiff of tobacco. Very sweet. The drydown makes it more powdery and the orange blossom gets more bitter. It turns in to a very sensual dry but still soft floral scent. I like it very much, but I can imagine it can tigger headache and migraine of you overapply.

Pretty good longevity, moderat sillage.

If you are in to Orange blossom/Neroli scents, this is a little more intruiging than SL Fleur d'oranger (wich I love).

Agua de Azahar to fall asleep...

Seville smells like "Pharmar Agua de Azahar Orange Flower Water" or similar products to me. I remember my mother giving me orange blossom water to help me fall asleep some times, and Seville smells just like it. I was expecting this to smell like true orange (similar to Atelier's Orange Sanguine) mixed with a little tobacco and benzoin (from the listed notes). How can that combination fail? But no. I don't get any amber or tobacco. Just orange blossom and other flowery scents. Definitely nothing a man could be interested on.

This did not smell like the blossom of orange to me, more like the rind and fruit in a very over-ripe, bruised orange, and then about half an hour into the dry-down I got a big whiff of TAR! which I guess was the tobacco. Not a successful combo to my nose, I'm afraid. In its favour it lasted many hours on my skin, which a lot of the L'Artisans do not.

I tried unsuccessfully to read Denyse Beaulieu's book chronicling the creation of L'Artisan Parfumeur Seville à l'aube. It was too self-conscious and bloggy for me to slog through, though I checked it out from the library twice and even exhausted all renewals. I might try again, because I did find that it held anthropological interest...

So, the perfume. I do admit to having been interested in trying this creation, given that I spent two Christmas seasons in the south of Spain, and I, too, hold fond memories of Sevilla. Since I was there in December, the Christmas lights were out and everyone was bustling about with family and friends amidst the holiday rush. It was there that I discovered the cookies known as "polvorones" which are very similar to what some call "Mexican wedding cakes" or pecan balls. Sugar, flour, some source of saturated fat (I believe that they are often made with lard), and pulverized nuts all rolled together into an extremely dense meal-replacement cookie. Every year in Spain they have a contest to see how big a polvorone can be. I believe that the last time I was there some bakers managed to create a 2,000 lb polvorone. Hardened arteries and diabetes for all!

That little anecdote was not entirely irrelevant, because Seville à l'aube is a fairly sweet concoction. There is a lot going on here, but my sense is that there were too many cooks in the kitchen. Yes, I smell the lavender, and I smell the light touch of aldehydes, and something sinus-clearing (iso-E-super?), but mostly I smell sweet orange blossom, with an emphasis on the "sweet". Honey appears to be the responsible note, upping the sweetness register of the orange blossom to the level of spray-on dessert. There is also a fatty quality here (could be the benzoin)--polvorones en Sevilla!

There is something wonderful about simple orange blossom soliflores, but I feel that too many bells and whistles have been attached in this case. I am happy to have tried this perfume, thanks to the generous provision of a large sample by pitbullfriend, but I will not be acquiring a bottle.

I pretty much just got a cloyingly sweet honey smell. The Floral notes didn't peak through until just about the time it faded. Definately not a good one for me.

Edit: I tried this again a few times since my previous review and in the colder, drier weather it is more complex that the Honey bomb I got in the humid heat of summer. I still don't like it, but I was able to pick out a leather smoky, incense thing behind the cloying honeyed orange. This is defiantly orange blossom but it's not white, or green. It's yellow and honeyed. I can see how some people would go for it. On someone else's skin it may become divine. On me it was not so good.

I could see this being a favorite orange Blossom of the people whom gravitate towards Cuir de Russie, Tabac Blond, and Black Orchid. It gives off the same vibe when it's not a honey bomb.

This fabulous scent is bright and sweet, but not cloying with petit grain and frankincense peeking out. I smell the sweet orange blossom along with an edge of a freshly peeled rind. This one is full, rich, smooth and long lasting. This one has helped me forget the discontinued L'Occitane's Neroli.

Oh my, this is truly the most gorgeous orange blossom perfume I've ever smelled. And I don't even like orange blossom that much!
What I love about this one is that it's not cloying, indolic or too rich. Sometimes orange blossom can get so sirupy it makes me nauseous, but this has so many other aspects of the flower that it balances it out.
What I smell is green and juicy citrus, the bitterness of the zest, woods, something leafy and after a few hours something warm comes up underneath. There's a hint of incense but especially the beeswax and tobacco gives a sweetness, almost like a vanilla orange popsicle. People from the Netherlands may recognize a "Sinassplit" in the drydown.
I love love love this one, with the fresh start and gorgeous smooth drydown. It's complex, but very natural all at once and I've never smelled anything like this before. I'm also very impressed with sillage and longevity.
Highly recommended!

The opening is orange and then honey, after that is like a Ping-Pong match of orange-honey honey-orange. The lavender breaks the cycle, but it bring the annoying (to me) typical lavender scent.
It all turns into a mash of aromas, I don't know, the tobacco appears and it becomes unbearable.
I don't like it.

This is indeed a true gem... until the drydown. It gets shockingly cloying, sweet and greasy somehow. I guess it is the beeswax and benzoin. Such a pity as the opening notes are feminine, sensual and seductive.

I think this one will become my 2013 "make me happy" fragrance. I usually don't like lavender, but lavender mixed with "winning" notes is always a hit! I smell more the benzoin, olibanum, incense notes, but in a combination that doesn't make this a "smell like Church" fragrance. The fact that lavender and orange blossom are present make this (I will use jeca's word) charismatic. If ever one day I decide to start a new religion, I will use Seville a l'Aube as the incense in all my candles and religious icons. This is definitely a unique and beautiful fragrance.

Crikey! Now this IS a perfume.

I discovered it at a perfume and poetry event held in a huge Victorian glasshouse at Edinburgh's Botanic Gardens. There was an entire table-full of high-end beautiful perfumes, music playing people chatting, foliage all around like a Rousseau painting of a wild jungle..

And amongst all the hustle and bustle and distraction, my immediate impression of this was nature in the rough, a multi-dimensional feel that made me want to sniff more and more. Eventually I had my arm sprayed liberally and five hours later I'm still being transported every time it wafts past my nose. Where to I'm not sure - not necessarily to Seville under an orange blossom tree with a Spanish lover, but there's no denying I'm uplifted.

This is orange blossom - but enriched, drawn out, given leaves, trees, soil, bees, bark and somewhere amongst it a kind of nostalgia that makes me smile while my eyes water (in a good way!) at the same time.

Very, very authentic orange blossom - beyond any natural essence or luxury orange blossom I've sniffed before, tangy, creamy, expansive, rounded. I lived in Greece many years ago, and I'd sometimes ride my horse up the valleys which were full of olive trees and flowers, maybe that's it..

This is beautiful. Now have full bottle

What was that stuff that the TV pitchman sold that would de-grease and clean anything under the sun with the power of orange oil? Orange Glo! That's the stuff. And this was first sniff right from the bottle and first application. This reeked of orange cleaning fluid, very artificial, contrived, and bloody awful. It was very off-putting, and that's stating it mildly.

The experience beyond that did little to enamor me to the scent, as that horrible orange blossom continued to overwhelm any other note in range. My wife wasn't so repulsed by it at the beginning so she gave it a more thorough try and endured through testing. Two hours later, that orange cleaner smell hadn't dissipated and she was left to a hot shower and soap to remove the offending scent.

The story of its creation is a nice tale, but it's unfortunate that the fragrance emerging is so horridly rank. We'd looked so forward to trying this that the result was hardly worth the effort. Very disappointing release from a house that has become more well known for its disappointments than its successes.

I like the fragrance in the beginning of its opening - so bright orange blossom note! It smells truly delightful. Even reminds more crispy orange scent. But then I can't stand the lavender note. It makes this fragrance masculine.

In general I like this fragrance, just not my cup of tea because of the lavender note.

At the very beginning a fresh and sweet orange note is the prominent one. It also makes me think of fresh jasmine, not the sour one which often appears in fragrances. It remains floral for a while. After about an hour the beeswax note dominates this magnificent scent. I can detect in the background just a hint of vanilla, just enough to make this whole concoction romantic. It is sensual. I see it very well on a romantic woman. It is delicious. It is the first time that I smell such a lovely and intense beeswax note and I am falling in love with it. Absolutely gorgeous.

Whilst shopping in my favourite perfume boutique, after having tested Traversee du Bosphore, the sales assistant urged me to take a sniff of L'Artisan's newest, Seville a l'aube. I am incredibly grateful to her for having brought this fragrance to my attention.

Seville a l'aube contains one of my all-time favourite notes, orange blossom. This orange blossom accord is one of the sweetest I've ever encountered, laced with syrupy honey and vanillary benzoin.

Opening with bright, sparkling petit grain, you could be forgiven for thinking that Seville a l'aube is a citrus scent. As the fragrance dries on the skin, a medicinal smelling orange blossom and sticky honey blend makes a bold entrance, with a hint of powdery and aromatic lavender.

The drydown is surprisingly soft and incensey, with olibanum, benzoin and a heavier lavender accord. This blend kind of reminds me of the scent of those New Age stores in my area. I can't say that I was able to detect the tobacco note. It was non-existent to my nose whilst wearing this fragrance.

Seville a l'aube is both unique and familiar in lots of ways. I applaud the craftsmanship that has gone into creating this fragrance. Bertrand Duchaufour is a very clever perfumer. His creations under the house of L'Artisan are worth checking out.

I am pleased to say that Seville a l'aube's longevity is superb, and that the sillage has a nice throw. For such a beautiful fragrance, I am shocked to read so many negative reviews. Either way, I'm keeping this fragrance in mind for Spring and Summer at the end of this year.

While I am sure this smells divine on other people, apparently my skin does not like florals other than jasmine. On my skin, it smells like a cheap air freshener. Soapy, fake and garish. I had so much hope for this fragrance too! Oh well.

I really think it has more to do with my skin than the perfume. So give it a try but I would get a sample before you buy blind.

Edit: I gave my sample to my mom, and it smells absolutely LOVELY on her. So it was definitely my skin!

I love the description by Denyse Beaulieu but don't think I would like the perfume. I live in Florida and I hate it when the citrus is in bloom.

Lots of orange blossom. Gives an impression of orange and green. It's somehow too much, has a weird gourmand quality, like a big too-sweet meringue covered in candied flowers and orange leaves. Also a tiny trace of celery. A little nauseating.

Bertrand Duchaufour the nose behind CDG Avignon, which I have tried but was not too impressed after two wearings. I rate Avignon 7/10. But he astonished me when I sampled his Timbuktu, led me to buy a full bottle. It earned many compliments every time I wear it and Timbuktu has climbed up to my top 10 best perfumes rating it 9.5/10.
This is now a tie as per my evaluation oh Duchaufour's creations. I can't wait for my Dzongkha to arrive.

Today my sample on Seville arrived along with 6 more samples, freebies from an online store as gifts from being their avid customer.

This is my take on Seville to please my curiosity. A dab on my right arm and I felt already its beastly orange blossoms. It smells strong but good on top as I smell the orange blossoms, white florals with a sharp tone of beeswax, that added light sweetness. There is a faint lavender note coming in and out.

But after 20 minutes or so, reaching the heart, I felt it to be slightly cloying. I can stand this cloying note but I can't distinguish which one it is, maybe carnation, as I am not accustomed to its scent plus I don't remember having a carnation note on my perfumes.

The heart didn't stay long and an hour after, the scent was pleasant but not original, not even outstanding. I know I have smelled this dry down before. If there is leather here, I didn't get any out of it. I smell paper, a stationary but very light yet nice. But I have smelled this dry down better on one perfume that I admire.

Seville is a love/hate perfume. A loud & potent charming top, a less interesting mildly cloying heart and a lightly pleasant dry down, not unique but appealing.
It is suitable for spring and fall on an afternoon to evening occasion. This is best & would get more compliments on a windy outdoor walk, garden setting event plus would attract female noses. I don't think, as a man, that I will turn my head to a woman wearing Seville.
I would rather turn my head on a woman wearing a heavier, more refined and wonderful dry down, like Alien. This is Seville's resemblance, a heavyweight and way ahead more beautiful base scent. My rate would be 7/10. Admirers of Alien may like this greener & lightly floral fragrance with a citrusy top.

This is one of those pieces of work that make me want to cop out, declare that it smells awesome, full-stop, end-of-story. :)

To begin with this is not a raunchy fragrance, but it is beautiful. The very aromatic opening is provided by a clean lavender (no dry/ashy Gris Clair to be seen here), citrus, and the orange blossom.

The orange blossom is not indolic, which is a bit of a shame because I enjoy a homeopathic quantity of skank like that. :) On the flipside it never gets too "baby doll" as per Le Labo's neroli. This is because of the incense-beeswax that give it the much needed oomph in the heart and the base that serious fragrances possess. The benzoin becomes more detectable in the base, never too sweet.

Longevity and sillage are solid without being outstanding.

Possibly the sexiest perfume I've ever worn. I really love this and have just bought a second bottle as I fear ever being without it. With those petitgrain top notes, it's the perfect orange blossom for crisp spring days, but the beeswax drydown is the real clincher for me - it has bumped Fleurs d'Oranger by Serge Luten into second place as too syrupy and cuminy. Well done, Denyse. NB: I would never wear this fragrance to a doctor's appointment, or to see the bank manager, or to intimidate at work - it is way too sexy. This is a serious seduction fragrance.

Trully wonderful! I come from a Mediterranean country and this reminds me of Spring in country sides and villages where lemon and bitter orange trees are all bloomed. In Athens where I live, bitter orange trees are everywhere!! Pavements here are full of these trees. So, it is all natural to love this fragrance. Apart from its familiar smell, it is a gorgeous lady like white floral. I smelled honeysuckle too but it is not listed. Subtle, sweet sour, warm and aristocratic smoky. A luminous happy enjoyable perfume!

I was in a serious olfactory crisis until yesterday: was ready for a new fragrance to try and to love, but kept feeling disappointed no matter what new sents I smelled... The biggest blow came at the Chanel counter after I smelled Coco Noir... and then I had my epiphany: walked six more blocks along Fifth Avenue to Henri Bendel and up the staits to L'Artisan Parfumeur boutique. This time, I was not disappointed! The new Seville a l'Aube is amazing! I will not analyze or take apart its complex bouquet but rather tell you how it makes me feel. I put it on this morning, and it helped me wake up, despite the early hour; it enhanced the pleasure from my first cup of coffee, made me feel warm and protected despite the chill in the air; filled me with sunshine despite the cloudy skies. And I have not even read the book yet [The Perfume Lover] - but I am getting it from London. Bottomline: do yourself a favor, try it even if it doesn't sound like your preferred combination of ingreadients. This fragrance is a sublime work of contemporary perfumery! Bravo, M. Duchaufour!

This went straight from a blind buy to one of my favorite fragrances so I am afraid this is not going to be an objective review, but rather an explanation why I love this so much.

Seville a l'aube opens as a green orange blossom. It may seem fresh and clean at first but quickly you notice the wicked sensual grin of this seemingly innocent beauty. Honey lends some sweetness but on my skin, it is not very predominant and I don't get any urinal whiffs as with some other honeyed fragrances. Tobacco (another tricky note on me), benzoin, frankincense and lavender are not key players, they just add some complexicity to the beautiful orange blossom. On my skin this lasts for good 9 hours. Sillage is really good. This is the first l'Artisan that actually lasts on my skin and projects.

I have gotten many compliments when wearing this, regardless of the time of day/weather. Suits every possible occasion, you just need to be careful with the trigger if you are working in a small office or sitting in a hot car for a long drive. And if you want to seduce your lover...well, this is perfect! My Spanish friend said that somehow this made her think of home. This was before she knew what I was wearing so Duchaufour&Beaulieu have really nailed the moment they wanted to capture.

I cannot think of any other perfume that would smell the same or evoke the same feelings in me. This is love.

I wanted to love this, as I regard the author highly, and applaud the concept. Unfortunately, this is not for me. I live in an old citrus grove, so I am familiar with blossoms. I picked them up in the opening, but then the only thing I could smell was something akin to the milky sap that oozes when I trim my star jasmine. Milky, cloying, uber-sweet and ending with a sharp pungent green note. White flowers past their prime and the week old water they arrived in from the florist. Sigh.

A really beautiful green, clean orange blossom fragrance for those who find Serge Lutens Fleurs d'Oranger too heavy. This perfume is very transparent to its ingredients: orange blossom, petitgrain, beeswax and incense. It goes on citrussy and those green notes make it easily wearable by men. For me, it's the orange blossom that dominates, but when I sprayed it on friends of mine (I was sent a bottle by the company for testing), some said 'spicy' and others 'ecclesiastical', which is bang-on - one of the inspirations is the smell of burned-out beeswax candles. There is also said to be lavender in it, but I don't detect any. It has great staying power - if you put it on in the morning, you're going to be smelling it all day, which some of my friends found just too much, though personally I like to get 8-9 hours out of a perfume. A really lovely orange blossom for lighter days when FdeO would seem like just too much.

This is a beautiful fragrance, my favorite for now from Artisan's line, it's base on a powerful pair - orange blossom and incense, with nuances of tobacco, beeswax, lavender... a very rounded, yet charismatic. It's smooth like fragrances from the past, and sensual, explicit sexy ;o)
