While Perfumery stores are fully packed with fragrances that come and go, sometimes you meet a fragrance brand worth exploring. Here is OXYMORE PARFUMS. This new brand was created by Carine Lebrun, a perfumery professional and passionate by fragrances since her childhood. After working for prestigious fragrance houses on international projects for 20 years, the time has come for her to develop her world and propose her fragrances. Here is our full review of OXYMORE PARFUMS.


A story of contrasts that make sense

OXYMORE PARFUMS is a brand of luxury fragrances based on unexpected and harmonious contrasts. Carine Lebrun got her inspiration from her life and things that have marked her career. 100% French-made, OXYMORE Eau de Parfum was designed in Paris and produced in Grasse, the historic cradle of perfumery. They are made of quality raw materials to achieve a balance of top notes to base notes. It is a conception of perfumery perceived as unique art. Carine Lebrun wants to surprise you with her amazing contrasts, a true olfactory oxymoron.

OXYMORE PARFUMS: Three fragrances to make you dream

With her brand’s creation, Carine Lebrun wanted a personal story and a crafted creation with the very best ingredients. She worked with Fabrice Olivieri – Parfumologie. From this first opus, three new fragrances were created:


With Blond Ténébreux, you will be seduced by this bright-dark story. The radiant bergamot and the incisive lemon, jostled by mischievous cardamom, reveal a slightly spicy heart of violet leaf and elemi, softened by the iris. A light note of baked apple announces the inevitably addictive side of the fragrance, which coils in the background in a blond suede enhanced with patchouli, haloed with a cashmeran accord, cedar, Tonka bean and white musk. The initial inspiration for this fragrance was a film character, playing on ambivalent contrasts. You will be surprised by this fragrance as you will feel like being in a movie. A complex story in which you know when it starts but you do not know where it will lead you to.


With Tendresse Cruelle, it is a different olfactory film scenario. The comforting tenderness of heliotrope and the delicacy of magnolia are jolted by the scathing notes of aldehydes, pink berries and black pepper, before surrendering to an addictive base of amber and labdanum, refreshed with an enigmatic incense.


Last but not least, Oud Atlantique is a story that will lead you around the world from East to West. The invigorating spray heckles the sparkle of cardamom, caressed by the essence of clary sage in its sweet aromatic freshness. The heart of spices, where pepper, nutmeg, and pink berries mingle, blows on the rosewood pontoon which brings us to the precious, oriental and mysterious notes of Oud wood, myrrh, gurjun and wood of Gaïac, warmed with absolute clary sage and patchouli, all wrapped in a cloud of amber and white musk.

With OXYMORE PARFUMS, you will discover three original olfactory stories. They are crafted as beautiful films that will lead you to new adventures, made for fragrance lovers. Carine Lebrun wanted to create fragrances that would not disappoint. From the initial first top notes to the base’s last accords, she wanted to offer fragrances that will tell the full story to the end. It is, for sure, a fragrance brand to follow. Do not hesitate to visit the official website. You can order a discovery sample kit and try the fragrances at home without a problem.
