Exceptional Raw Materials from LMR (Laboratoire Monique Remy)
Ambrette Seed LMR
Ambrette Seed, which comes from the Muskmallow flower, is used to reinforce the Carrot Heart and Orris Concrete. This raw material from LMR has a beautiful nutty, powdery, musky profile.
Carrot Heart LMR
Carrot Heart is a fraction extracted from carrot seed, so it has a similar personality to ambrette, while also possessing fruity apricot facets and floral iris-like notes.
Orris Concrete LMR
Orris Concrete is a very special note in perfumery, which comes from the rhizome of the iris flower and must spend several years underground, and then age for several more years before being extracted. It is one of the most expensive and precious notes in our palette and brings an incredible sophistication and sheen to a composition. To us, orris represents luxury in a discreet, understated, but extremely palpable way.
Indian Sandalwood LMR
To wrap the steamed milk accord, Mackenzie employed a beautiful quality of Indian Sandalwood that has unctuous buttery notes which lend a creamy richness to the base.
Broom Absolute Italy LMR
“I also included Broome Absolute that is produced in Italy, as an homage to the origins of the brand”, says Mackenzie.
Broome Absolute is an extremely complex gourmand ingredient that has notes of honey, chocolate, cereal, pistachio... it is very rich and textured and provided a lot of body to the cake accord.
