WOMEN'S PERFUMES



All the perfumes described in here are complex compositions in which the ingredients can be counted in their tens. Some descriptions are more or less short, which does not say anything on the fact that these formula are not any less subtle or sophisticated.

They are the result of personal choices a distinctive feature of the trademark as much as a tribute to the perfumers who made a significant contribution, showing all their talent. 

Francis Kurkdjian

Le Rivage des Syrtes

The shore of Syrtes

a world which is too complex and goes too fast, wraps him or her in softness and serenity.

Bertrand Duchaufour


La Belle Hélène

The Beautiful Helen

 Bertrand Duchaufour has successfully created here an indisputable original creation whether we know or not if the magnificence overshadows the sweet flavor. Like a fabric, rich velvet  or a silk embroidered as they used to do in the early times, but also in a completely different way, like a grand mother's desert, nostalgic mention of lost paradises but also of the everyday true happiness wearable on a daily basis.

Heart notes : Bulgarian rose, osmanthus, mimosa, ylang ylang, iris, hawthorn, 

mirabelle plum

Cécile Zarokian


Nuit Andalouse

Andalusian Night

An enchanting composition around the gardenia theme which carries us at the heart of a warm summer Mediterranean night, languid, with the rustling whisper of the fresh fountains and of voices and far-off signings which can be heard in the splendor of the gardens.

Top notes : orange, green notes, violet

Heart notes : gardenia, ylang ylang,  Bulgarian rose

Bottom notes : vanilla, sandalwood, musks

 

Cio Cio San

An olfactory work on a theme rarely visited, that of the Far East, dreamed of, idealized and in the end a poetic fragrance and of an extreme sophistication but above all joyful and happy.

"oolong"  tea (blend of lightly smoked green tea)

Les Indes Galantes

A refined and voluptuous fragrance, an invitation to travel to an imaginary exotic country. The intoxicating scents of precious spices, flowers, fruits arouse senses and emotions.
 

« Un cœur qui change chaque jour,
Chaque jour fait pour lui des conquêtes nouvelles,
Les fidèles amants font la gloire des belles,
Mais les amants légers font celle de l’amour »

Fêtes Persanes

 
After "Cio Cio San" and "Les Indes Galantes", another stage on the long journey through the Asian continent
from the shore of the Pacific to those of the Mediterranean.
 
 
Named after « Fêtes Persanes», another opera-ballet by 18th Century French composer Jean-Philippe Rameau,
Cécile Zarokian has signed this elegant creation that unfolds its complex formula with a startling grace,
and leaves a refined sillage distinctly different from the sparkling and spicy top notes
that announce a happy and memorable fragrance.

Head notes : Bergamot, black pepper, elemi
 
Heart notes : Rose notes, cardamom, cinnamom, clove
 
Base notes : White muscs, gaiac, cedarwood, patchouli, vanilla
