Eric Buterbaugh Florals

ericThis past week I was invited to the new home of Eric Buterbaugh line of scents. the scents are florals and quite lovely- I’ll be going into them more in the future as I live with them, but at first blush they’re beautifully done. I met with Fabrice Croisé, the charming and handsome Frenchman who partners with Eric in his retail store.

For those of you who don’t know of his work, Eric is a florist by trade- he’s the house florist for the Four Seasons Hotel and responsible for their gorgeous arrangements He decided to create a line of fragrances that were a perfumers dream; the best ingredients and an all-or-nothing approach. The perfumers were able have a free hand in creating the scents.

The Beverly Boulevard store is a beautiful space, with an attached art gallery, beautifully planted atrium with a seating area that is worlds away from the busy street.

The scents are Hyacinth, Lilly of the Valley, Tuberose, Jasmine, Rose, Lavender and Violet and are all quite beautiful in an unexpected way. They are very quiet scents, almost meditative. For instance the tuberose is very sheer with with an initial hit of citrus, while the rose is spicy with pepper and delicious musk. I also was told of some of the upcoming scents, which I promised to keep secret, but I think will please a lot of people.

I’ll be writing more about these as I live with them. If you are in Los Angeles you should stop by and experience these. The shop is on Beverly Boulevard just East of Sweetzer. More info is available on their website, here.

The scents are $300 for 3.4 ounces. I received my samples from the store.

    Ooooh! Would love to try the tuberose! Do they do samples?

    • Tom says:

      They have a sample set that has all of them in very generous sizes, but it’s $250

  • Mals86 says:

    No way I’m getting to LA anytime soon, but I hope I might find some 1ml samples somewhere. I’m a big floral-lover.

  • tammy says:

    Oh my gosh… these look lovely! The bottles really are stunning, and I love florals. I’ve been trying to find a really good hyacinth, and am always up for jasmine.

    Will have to check them out next time I go back for a visit. Thank you so much for sharing!

  • Maya says:

    This sounds heavenly for a floral lover like me, so I went on the site. I may have missed something but the only samples I saw were a set of seven 10ml scents for $250. I was shocked.That’s crazy for perfumes I may or may not like. I won’t be trying these.

    • Tom says:

      Yeah, the sample set is not cheap. But they’re generously sized. Perhaps they can work something out where they can do smaller as they move forward.

    He looks like a cool guy in the pics Tom. I bet you two had a hoot.
