Master perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour, author of “Copal Azur”, is a deft hand at conjuring faraway lands at a stroke of a few or more notes, and he’s especially renowned for his use of incense. In the case of “Copal Azur”, three different types of incense resin were used in order to evoke copal, a fragrant gum burned during various Central American rituals and ceremonies. This smoke was wafting across the lands of Mayan populations during pre-Columbian times, and it still does in modern days, a mark of the past and its mystery.
For “Copal Azur”, Mr.Duchaufour does as he has done before: he smashes the stone walls of the temples and releases the beautiful smoke into the air, this time marrying it to the salty sea and the moist jungle. It brings to mind a shaman’s hut, hanging from a rocky cliff, so close to the ocean’s vastness that you can almost taste it. The copal is burning and the Gods are near. And your whole life seems to be contained in that very moment: past, present and future are one.
Born twenty years ago in the heart of Greenwich Village in New York City, Aedes de Venustas (which means Temple of Beauty in Latin) has become the global Mecca of perfume connoisseurs. The Aedes de Venustas perfumery is home to a spectacular portfolio of brands, many of which were unveiled to the world at the boutique, providing them with a platform to showcase their brand to their international fragrance audience
In 2012, co-owners Karl Bradl & Robert Gerstner took their passion for fragrance to the next level by establishing their own full-fledged perfume house. The common thread of the Aedes de Venustas fragrance collection is Frankincense, the millennia-old burnt offering to the gods that gave its very name to perfume. The duo chose top perfumers and afforded them complete creative freedom to explore unique, innovative accords. The result, an intriguing perfume collection which mirrors the exceptionally high, luxurious values which Aedes de Venustas is renowned & respected for.
