Inspired by the enduring traditions of the autumn wheat harvest in France, Epidor is not simply a fragrance, but a portal to a simpler time. Originally introduced in 1912, Epidor evokes images of sun-kissed youth from farming villages, exhausted from a hard day’s work, resting in the newly cropped fields and daydreaming about the night’s celebrations, and hopefully, romances.
Epidor’s nostalgically lovely scent is built around the multifaceted richness of tonka bean, a material that can elicit tones of fresh hay, vanilla, and sweet florals all at once, but the fragrance opens first with a rich autumnal blend of sweet, musky violet and juicy plum, followed quickly by a lushly natural white floral heart of jasmine and orange blossom. By the time the tonka asserts itself, we’re deeply enthralled, awash in the warmth of the setting sun and the bucolic splendor of the French countryside. Gentle, comforting and evocative, Epidor is a fragrance of simple, wondrous beauty.
