Micallef - Only for ParfuMaria N°1 - Vanille Orient EDP 100 ml COLLECTORS ITEM!
The success story of Parfums M. Micallef and ParfuMaria.
To celebrate the years of successful cooperation between Parfums M. Micallef and ParfuMaria, Martine has specially created for us three charming flacons of her own design that our presented under our international name "ParfuMaria". The three rectangular bottles are topped with the signature heavy Micallef Art Collection cap. The N°1 and N°3 flacon are presented with diagonal golden decorative stripes, while the N°2 flacon is presented with horizontal golden stripes. The flacon design is mirrored on the ParfuMaria presentation boxes which have also been painted by hand.
For "ParfuMaria N°1" we were able to convince Martine to relaunch the legendary "Vanille Orient" for us.
The Fragrance – Vanille Orient
Note Vanillee by M. Micallef is a Oriental Vanilla fragrance for women. Note Vanillee was launched in 2007. The nose behind this fragrance is Jean-Claude Astier.
Top Note: Vanilla Madagascar
Heart Note: Sandalwood, Vanilla Blossom
Base Note: Musk, Ambergris
Micallef’s Vanille Orient from the Collection Vanille is one of the lighter members from the Orientals genus and a look at the fragrance notes also reveals why.
The protagonist vanilla is encircled by sensual sandalwood and beguiling vanilla flowers. Musk and ambergris in the base underline this in an excellent manner.
We have to think of an oriental beauty, taken from the paintings of harem ladies. A seductive fragrance surrounds this beauty, with her silken alabaster skin. Expensive fabrics cling to her body and an aura of subtle yet sensual and passionate spices embrace her under the aegis of vanilla. She lies upon soft cushions steeped in musk and delicately lifts the veil on our fantasies.
THE ART COLLECTION VANILLE consists of four fragrances combining the sweetness of vanilla with specific notes of leather, oriental, floral and water fragrance families. This four-movement symphony is written to fulfill individual desires. They are created with the best natural oil of Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar.
Parfums M. Micallef - Art and Craft Combined
On the Côte d'Azur, one of the most beautiful and at the same time most extravagant regions of France, the small perfume house of Micallef is located, which was founded in 1996 by Martine Micallef and her husband Geoffrey Newman.
While her husband Geoffrey Newman first worked as a financial consultant for a large company that traded with aromas and ingredients and in this extraordinary way discovered his love for fragrances, Martine Micallef had since time immemorial devoted her life to the aesthetic: for 18 years she ran a beauty institute in Cannes and incidentally discovered her talent as an artist, created drawings and paintings that were well received in the artists scene.
Not long after the two discovered their love for each other, they turned to the production of exclusive perfumes and handmade perfume bottles. Today Geoffrey and Martine Micallef live and work together near Cannes and through their company share and realize their dream of creating small (perfume) works of art. The pair find inspiration for their fragrances while travelling and have spent much time in the Middle East. Many of their customers are located around the Arabian Peninsula for whom upon request Martine likes to create create individual flacons or personal fragrances.
The Micallef fragrances largely dispense with synthetic substances and moreover, the fragrances are still filled by hand and the flacons decorated by hand.
