L’Heure Mystérieuse XII Review

L’Heure Mystérieuse, A.K.A. the XIIth hour, is Mathilde Laurent’s tenebrous take on the patchamber theme.
With perceptible relish, the challenging aspects of patchouli’s character are enunciated in clarion tones: from its strikingly camphorous top, whose cool vapours here curl with resinous incense, through its dark earthiness that’s augmented by impressions of dry woods, oakmoss, clove, and a dusting of cocoa powder. The whole is rounded out with plump musks and benzylic blenders that have a soft balsamic/floral/oily quality.

Nose: Mathilde Laurent
House: Cartier
