A balcony with a view on Hyde Park: the resinous green of galbanum, the moist earth of patchouli, the brush and roots of vetiver. In window boxes on the terraces, rose bushes are whipped – a time-honored tradition in English schools – by the bracing, minty lemony facets of geranium. As a counterpoint to this typically masculine note, the hay and almond tendrils of Sir Winston’s cigar. An original rose-tobacco accord, as witty as the great man’s bon mots.
“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.
