L'Arbre de la Connaisance
Referencing the Garden of Eden or Buddha’s Tree of Enlightenment, L’Arbre de la Connaissance (The Tree of Knowledge), perfumer Marc Fanton d’Andon takes the luscious, fruity-green freshness of fig and deepens it with a gravitas-creating patchouli-woods base that offers a wonderful counterpoint to that fruit’s usual straightforward sunniness.
L’Arbre de la Connaissance opens with a hint of citrus, and herbaceousness from fig leaves. Soon, facets of camphor, mint, woods, and spice radiate from the plump fruity fig that is at its center, thanks to the sandalwood and patchouli at its base. For those who want a fig fragrance with depth, mystery, and yes — a kind of knowing elegance — L’Arbre de la Connaissance will enlighten you.
