Marked by the lightness of Cologne Bigarade, with which it shares its composition, this fragrance by Jean-Claude Ellena is transcended by the addition of a novel bitter orange essence, obtained by molecular distillation. Built on the singular bitter freshness of these citric notes, a cardamom and rose heart and a woody base of hay reinforce its unique and natural structure. Bigarade Concentrée stylishly exudes a pure, lasting natural freshness.
Born into a family of perfumers from Grasse, Jean-Claude Ellena was introduced to the art of developing fragrances as a teenager. Self-taught, he defines his creations as a "poetry of memory." Everyday smells; wax floors, clean sheets, skin, an old sweater - are his greatest inspiration. Jean Claude Ellena never raises his voice, although he is heard loud and clear. His signature is simple, minimalist and modern. His style is often compared to watercolors or chamber music.
