French couture and perfumery have always been interconnected. After working for Jean-Paul Gaultier, French couturier Marc-Antoine Barrois opened his first boutique in 2013. As a designer he seeks the art of simple luxury without ostentation. Now he has launched his first perfume – B683.
Much like his designs themselves, the scent is elegant and discreet. Subtly combining refined woody essences, sensual spicy notes and the heady smell of leather, avant-garde perfumer Quentin Bisch has crafted a perfume which is both heady and sober, modelled on the fantasy universe of Marc-Antoine himself.
After a perfume, a candle is a way of living a smell daily: entering a room, closing your eyes and slowly inhaling it for the enjoyment.
With the desire to then fill the Marc-Antoine Barrois Maison de Couture boutique at N°6 rue de Budapest in Paris with the scent of authenticity and refinement, a scented candle was developed to explore the universe of the couturier.
Working around the same leathery, woody and spicy frame as the fragrance, the aptly named N°6 candle incorporates amber scents, smoothed with smoky notes, resulting in a scented candle which shows his taste for refinement.
Both the scent B683 and the candle No.6 are now available exclusively at WORLD.
