Eau de Parfum for Women
At the crossroads of two worlds, this pure and feminine fragrance blows hot and cold, dancing between light and darkness. Casually spirited, it renews a rich and sensual chypre accord where the flower is the queen. Invited at its head by the fresh and aerial Bergamot, the Violet arrays its insolence and envelops the perfume with a mysterious veil. The inimitable and blazing mark of Patchouli asserts the trail of this resolutely modern chypre which escapes from all clichés.

A hard-to-capture note. In the language of flowers, Violets symbolise modesty. With its delicate petals, this shy flower stands out because of its suave, powdery notes. The story goes that Vulcan, physically ugly, adorned himself with Violets to please his wife Venus. Bewitched by their scent, she was unable to resist him.
Originally from India and Indonesia, it was through the cashmere shawl business in the 17th century that Patchouli was introduced to Europe. During long boat trips, Patchouli leaves were used to protect the fragile fabric. Their woody, earthy and captivating scent won over the women who enveloped themselves in the shawls. Both sweet and mysterious, Patchouli extended its powers of seduction to the realm of perfumery, where it became a must-have ingredient, fitting into a variety of compositions.
