ARVE Chaleureux is carried by scents that celebrate the richness of nature throughout the seasons. An Eau de Parfum that takes you to places that are at once familiar and yet exotic, characterized by calming serenity and natural elegance.
Stone pine oil
The stone pine (Latin: Pinus cembra), also known as the "Queen of the Alps", is a coniferous tree that grows in the Alps and thrives at extreme altitudes of up to 2500m. The valuable stone pine oil is obtained from the needles, twigs and heartwood.
Careful attention is paid during production to select only the richest material. This is followed by an air drying process to remove excess moisture and preserve the fragrances. The actual extraction of the essence is a process that uses steam distillation.
Due to its characteristic scent with resinous and woody nuances, it is appreciated for its refreshing and soothing properties.
Cinnamon bark from Ceylon
Ceylon cinnamon bark, botanically known as Cinnamomum verum, is prized for its distinctive scent. This rare variety of cinnamon originated on the island of Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon. The trees require intensive care and thrive best in the island's monsoon-drenched regions.
After a careful growth period of about 2 to 3 years, the bark is harvested in the rainy season, when the humidity intensifies its fragrance and the bark is at its most fragrant. The outer rind is removed, while the inner rind, which contains the precious aroma, is carefully peeled and laid out to dry in the sun.
Finally, after a process of steam distillation, an intense oil is obtained that carries the characteristic scent of Ceylon cinnamon in its purest form. This oil essence envelops the senses with warm, spicy and at the same time sweet scents, which are characterized by an incomparable, exotic depth.
The essence of lavender, botanically known as Lavandula angustifolia, is extracted from the blue flowers of the plant. In the perfume industry, the Bulgarian lavender, which is cultivated in the picturesque fields of the Balkans, is of particular importance. After an intensive growth phase of several months, usually between June and July, the lavender flowers are harvested during the flowering period.
After harvesting, the flowers are dried and distilled in a complex process. This process uses steam to extract the precious oil. The scent profile of Bulgarian lavender is fresh, floral and slightly tart with soothing nuances.
The essence of the fig leaf comes from the lush green leaves of the real fig, known among botanists as Ficus carica. In particular, the Mediterranean fig leaf, native to the coastal areas of southern Europe, is highly valued in the perfume industry for its unique scent profile.
Harvesting of the fig leaves is usually done during late summer, when the leaves have developed their richest aroma. After careful selection, the leaves are air-dried and finely ground to ensure maximum fragrance content.
The extraction process itself requires steam distillation, which produces an intense, green oil. The essence of the fig leaf offers a seductively green yet creamy-sweet fragrance profile. It embodies a balance of freshness and sweetness and has a distinctive, slightly earthy depth
The extraction of the precious nutmeg oil begins with the cultivation of the nutmeg tree. After the trees have gone through an intensive growth and maturation phase of around eight years, they begin to bear fruit. When fully ripe, the fruit bursts open to reveal its valuable core.
These kernels are carefully harvested, stripped of their characteristic red net shell, dried and then steam distilled. The scent profile of nutmeg is as unique as it is complex. It encompasses warm, spicy and slightly sweet nuances, underscored by a deep, woody base
Cedarwood oil, obtained from the species Cedrus atlantica, comes mainly from the heartwood of the tree. This special essence is very popular with perfumers for its unique scent and long lasting properties.
The wood is cut into small pieces and then dried to remove excess moisture and increase the concentration of aromatic oils. After drying, the cedar wood is subjected to a distillation process that uses steam to extract the valuable essential oils from the wood.
The scent of cedar wood takes the senses on a journey of warm, woody notes with hints of sweetness and an earthy base.
Cashmere wool accord
Perfume accords are harmonious combinations of two or more fragrance notes that together create a new fragrance. Similar to chords in music, perfume chords add depth, complexity and character to a fragrance. They are often combined from natural ingredients such as flowers, fruits, woods, spices and resins.
The cashmere-wool accord is an example of a particularly appealing and complex perfume accord. It is a harmonious blend of woody, musky and powdery nuances that combine to create a luxuriously soft fragrance. The cashmere-wool accord has an enveloping, soothing effect, creating a touch of sophistication and well-being.
