“Eris Parfums’ Mxxx. pushes dark sensuality to a new limit. It includes specially sourced, tinctured, and aged Ambergris in a huge concentration; the rarely used animalic ingredient Pierre d’Afrique; and the richest and most refined Trinidad Cacao I’ve ever smelled, used for the first time. Surrender to its beauty!” – Antoine Lie, perfumer
“If the ‘x’ in our fragrance ‘Mx.’ marked the freedom to be who you want to be, the ‘triple x’ of Mxxx. Extrait de Parfum extends that invitation with the lights turned down low — and the animalic growl turned up.” — Barbara Herman, founder & creative director
Due to its rarity and cost, natural ambergris — the aged and oxidized exudate from a sperm whale — is found largely in synthetic form in most perfumes listing it as an ingredient. At once sweet, earthy, marine, and animalic, natural ambergris imparts a subtle but unmistakable glow to any elixir it joins, adding an ineffable warmth, coziness, roundness, and sensuality that you have to smell — and feel — to understand.
Mxxx. also features a sumptuous Cacao from Trinidad and Tobago used for the first time ever in a fragrance. Selected by both perfumer Antoine Lie and a French artisanal chocolatier for its dark, spicy character, the Cacao was processed by independent haute perfumery lab L’Atelier Français des Matières, with its cocoa butter intact. This choice, along with the use of a green, organic solvent and AFDM’s ultrasound technology extraction at a low temperature, results in a Cacao with its full spectrum of aromatic molecules.
Notes: Madagascan blue ginger, mace (CO2 extraction), saffron, Ethiopian olibanum, pink peppercorn, Trinidad cacao (ultrasound extraction), Virginia cedarwood, sandalwood, Haitian vetiver, Indonesian patchouli, Laotian benzoin, castoreum (synthetic), natural ambergris, natural hyraceum, Madagascan green vanilla (ultrasound extraction)
No animals were involved or harmed in collecting the rare animalic ingredients in Mxxx. Both the Ambergris and Hyraceum in Mxxx. were provided by Stéphane Piquart of Behave, an organization founded on principles of transparent and sustainable sourcing, fair trade, and the empowerment of local populations. Eris Parfums never tests any of its fragrances on animals.
