Orchid Leather by Van Cleef & Arpels
Perfumer: Julien Rasquinet

Collection Extraordinaire is an exclusive collection inspired by Van Cleef & Arpels High Jewellery Line: Les Jardins, which contains fragrances with magnificent essences and noble ingredients.
Now, Van Cleef & Arpels ventures into a new olfactory territory with Orchid Leather, the first fragrance with a leather accent. The surprising leather note is created through the unexpected blend of two iconic perfume ingredients: cistus and vanilla.
Nature is full of surprises. These iconic ingredients reveal sensual scents that together create an irresistible leather experience. Named in honor of the precious orchid and its fruit, Orchid Leather takes us on an imaginary journey.
Like an artist creating an illusion of reality through their works, perfumer Julien Rasquinet has combined cistus and vanilla absolute to create this captivating leather experience. These notes are enveloped by an unexpected spicy accord of plum and cardamom, giving Orchid Leather a powerful finish.
