Lostmarc'h: Ael- Mat



Ael- Mat is the perfume that is closest to what I imagined a fragrance house named after a beach would produce; the scent of sea air.

The Lostmarc'h website lists the official notes for Ael- Mat as: head tone of hesperidia with undertones of jasmine and chamomile blossom over a soft musk base note. The chamomile blossom note is what makes this particularly interesting to me. Chamomile is, as we know from tea, a very calming and soothing scent. In this fragrance it gives the musky base scent a rounded, comforting but not at all sweet dry down.

Ael- Mat means Guardian Angel in Breton and is a unisex fragrance. I think the chamomile and musk dry down would be very interesting on a man or a woman. As with Din Dan from this house I think Ael- Mat is very wearable and suitable for many occasions.

I suppose in some ways it doesn't have the scent of a classic fragrance in the style of a Chanel or Guerlain but it could become a scent one identified with it's wearer as much as the more traditional perfumes. On the one hand it's quite unusual and would appeal to someone wanting a distinctive fragrance but on the other hand it is very soft and gentle and therefore I think would appeal to people with more classic tastes.

Another really attractive bottle, and this sounds lovely in an understated and elegant way. Thank you very much, Rose, for introducing us to these treasures!
Best wishes,

Hi Linda, yes i like this bottle too. I think this design and the Din Dan designs are both lovely and wonder if they will change all their labels to these little scenes (their other bottles are a bit different as I'm sure you've seen). I think they should!
Best wishes to you as well R

I really must some time this year get hands on Lostmarc'h this year.

Hi Jena, I would love to say I will post you little samples but won't that cause problems with it being liquid etc?

I just love the look of all of these bottles... it's the simple ones that are the most intriguing to me...

Hi Daily, I agree the combination of the vitnage type label and modern/ classic bottle is lovely- and very tempting! My dresser wants some of these!! (I have very deluxe samples at the moment)
