Désarmant resurrects the scent of the mysterious bottle found in a splendid Neo-baroque luxury hotel… Now, putting out a lilac scent today is a pretty bold move. Of course, everybody loves the spring flower. But it’s been ages since perfumers have given it a starring role.
Mossy undergrowth, luxuriant mauve clusters, vanilla-tinge nectar, and then that heady, animalic, almost leathery whiff the flowers exhale at the height of their blossoming… Désarmant returns lilac to its proper rank and refinement.
“Graceful, refined creations which defy the time of tyranny.” La Parfumerie Moderne takes you back to the Roaring Twenties and the Belle Epoque, the golden years of perfumery. Their inspiration lays in the era of glamour and their legendary hotels with their timeless elegance and posh visitors. Their label is inspired by the baggage tags of that era. Philippe Neirinck uses new resources to simulate the complex smell of lilac. He developed five perfumes together with Marc-Antoine Corticchiato, which pay homage to five legendary hotels from that time period: Cuir X, Désarment, No Sport, Années Folles, and Belles Rives.
