Bastille Paris offers original, high-quality perfumes that are characterised by the creative freedom of the perfumers, the use of luxury raw materials, transparency in the ingredient list, eco-sustainability and a focus on avoiding controversial ingredients. Bastille Paris' mission is to create vegan perfumes that liberate and amaze you, creating new standards and conventions.
Marie-Hortense, a natural cosmetics enthusiast and somewhat frustrated by the lack of alternatives to synthetic perfumes, decided in 2019 to meet with several perfumers to see where this lack stemmed from. She asked them if it was possible to imagine a natural and transparent alternative. The answers were friendly, but without follow-up. Marie Hortense, however, did not give up, and created Bastille. Thus, a first collection of natural, transparent and 100% safe perfumes was designed. Thanks to the work of their talented perfumers, 5 unisex perfumes were selected for theiroriginality and their exceptional raw materials.
Perfume is still regarded by law as a 'trade secret', which is why brands do not disclose their ingredients. This opacity has encouraged the use of controversial ingredients by some brands, such as BHT, an additive used as an antioxidant and suspected of being an endocrine disruptor. Bastille believes in transparency, and from the outset chose to make public the list of ingredients of fragrances in every product sheet: better to risk being copied than to leave doubts about your skin and what you breathe!
Bastille manages to make products that are 95 per cent natural ingredients, usingorganic grain alcohol, which is kinder to the planet, and using at least two-thirds natural ingredients in each perfume, for a perfume concentrate of 15 per cent. This is a long-term challenge, because these materials are difficult to obtain: for example, it takes six years to produce iris absolute - three years for the plant to grow and three years for it to mature after harvest. Their structure, which is more complex than their synthetic counterparts, also makes them more difficult for profumers to process.
The perfumers began creating100% natural perfumes. Unfortunately, the result lacked finesse and hold, so Bastille reintegrated some carefully selected clean synthetic molecules to accompany the natural raw materials and create exceptional accords. And what is left in the 5% synthesis? Only quality ingredients that respect your body and can be synthesised from natural raw materials. Ambroxan, for example, a synthetic molecule very similar to ambergris, a historical perfumery ingredient naturally produced and released by sperm whales, prized by perfumers for prolonging the sillage of fragrances. Ambroxan is synthesised from a molecule naturally present in sage, which is then transformed by man. It is 100% safe, even for sensitive skin. Bastille fragrances are vegan, formulated without endocrine disruptors, added solvents, stabilisers, dyes or UV filters.
