Size 190 g


A woody, fruity fragrance evoking a sensual picking, imagined by Vincent Ricord for D’ORSAY.

Just as the crickets begin to sing, an acidulous idea pops up in my mind. We can elope along this coastal path, exchange Currants with our lips, eat Raspberries placed on our fingertips, mix our hair, and lie on the Moss…

“11:40 is a break that is both gourmand and mischievous. I’ve combined the natural sweetness of red fruits with the tartness of blackcurrant and the more pungent character of cedar and frankincense. The notes of moss and pine needle strengthen the fragrance while ambroxan adds radiance.” -  Vincent Ricord, Perfumer

Alfred d'Orsay lived his life exactly as he wanted to: with passion, enjoying all the arts, thinking only of the moment, certainly burning his wings a little, sometimes out of pride but always out of love.

All D'ORSAY candles are cast in France, in a workshop of Ciriers with a unique and secular know-how for four generations. They are made according to traditional and manual techniques preserved by our craftsmen. The glass of the candle is signed with a monogram - interlaced letters - in a modern echo to the history of the house.
