L'Essence de Présence

€139.00 - Perfume

L’Essence de Présence shares its predecessor’s originality and elegance, with the addition of a warmer, more potent, mysterious undertone. L’Essence de Présence elicits the balanced, elegant mood typical of classic European perfumes, but with a unique, personal twist.

L’Essence de Présence features a number of Altena’s favourite ingredients such as bergamot, cedarwood and vetiver. Also enriching the formula is a line-up of earthier components like patchouli and the exotic guaiac wood, also known in Paraguay as palo santo, or sacred wood.

In a world in which new niche scents are launched every week, Altena’s greatest challenge was to uncover a formula that balances effervescence with a comfortable complexity.

In short, rather than create yet another iteration on the theme of the classic scents, he strove to craft a fragrance unlike any other.
