Aurelien Guichard is responsible for the fragrances produced by Tagasako. Matiere Premiere, or 'raw materials', is his personal perfume line which consists of eight genderless fragrances for both women and men. The foundation of each fragrance are notes squeezed out of the nature. The main characters of sensual perfumes are: coffee, vanilla, labdanum, ambrettolide or orange blossom, entangled in enigmatic, lascivious variations.

A warm, Oriental fragrance that goes beyond the ordinary. A falconer's leather glove is the starting point to Matiere Premiere's Falcon Leather eau de parfum. The aroma of tanned nubuck is drawn out by a combination of saffron and Ciste Labdanum, whilebenzoin absolutefrom Laos brings a carnal undercurrent to the proceedings.

Along the top, Venezuelan coffee and a sweet hit of Madagascan Vanilla temper the eau de parfum's weighty warmth.
