"At last, I could pass in any company as someone who was well brought-up and when I spoke, my words rarely belied the class of my elegance and my sense of style."
(“Souvenirs de Leonard, Coiffeur de la Reine Marie-Antoinette" by Jean Leonard Alexis Autie)
COUTURE CHIC is inspired by the exuberant novel “Souvenirs de Léonard, Coiffeur de la Reine Marie-Antoinette” by Jean Léonard Alexis Autié. Léonard was the favorite hairdresser of Queen Marie Antoinette. Together with the dressmaker Rose Bertin, he can be credited with having brought art of hairstyling, fashion and haute couture to the forefront of popular culture and Marie Antoinette become the first European fashion icon. The book elaborates the excessive life style, extravagant splendor and emotional affairs of that blistering epoch.
The perfume opens with the intoxicating happiness of bright orange blossoms mixed with fresh green notes and a pinch of tangling pink pepper.
lnitial joyful spirit is followed by luxurious floral tones of rich Turkish rose, tender sambac jasmine absolute and bewitching orris accords.
ln blissful essence of a lavish lifestyle, the base note indulges in a sweet gourmand bath of bourbon vanilla absolute blended with cassis praliné, and sensuous patchouli leaves.
This perfume is pure elixir of gourmand, floral and sensuality. It’s between light and shadow, based on a simple receipt but with a sublime harmony. I used Orris root one of the most expensive ingredient combined with Patchouli, Jasmine Sambac and Orange bloosom. That gives a noble luxury and unique smell to the perfume. Moreover, to create the addictive gourmand note that every woman likes I used Cassis Praline and Vanilla.
