DEEP DIVE

WITH PERFUMER CHRISTELLE LAPRADE

"In creating Scholar's Mate, I was reminded of the darkness of ebony wood, an emblematic nod to chess boards, and the method of Shou Sugi Ban, the age-old Japanese technique of preserving woods by charring it with fire. I used smoky woods like vetiver and cedar to bring this concept to life. Together, they kindle a strong, resilient woody composition, embellished with supple green notes of elemi and cardamom leaf that add an element of curiosity."
Christelle Laprade, perfumer
