The Alchemist Atelier
Bastille makes perfumes with 95% natural ingredients and 5% clean, synthetic ingredients. Everything about Bastille is beautiful: its name, its bottles, but also the entire philosophy of its creator, Marie-Hortense. The perfumes are all made in France, created in Paris, assembled in Grasse and bottled by an artisan in the Val-de-Marne. From “Hors-Piste” (Off Track) with its intrepid citrus scent, to “Demain Promis” (Tomorrow, Promise) and its indolent aromatic, to “Bataille” (Battle) with its incandescent woodiness; choose the tone and personality of your next perfume. Revolutionary.
This young Parisian perfume house ticks all the right boxes. Made in France, cruelty free, impertinent and, especially, a wide variety; it’s all impeccable. Their street vibe-y collaboration with London label YMC is absolutely on-trend and fun. 100% ethical and original scents… everything you need to be irresistible!
3 formats, 15ml 24 euros, 30ml 38 euros, 100ml 82 euros
