EXCLUSIVELY AT NEIMAN MARCUS
In 1905, a meeting took place that would change the perfume industry forever. Up to then, fragrances were sold in plain flasks, to be poured into precious, handcrafted and therefore costly bottles. The perfumer François Coty was convinced that each of his scents deserved "a perfect bottle with beautiful simplicity and impeccable taste". René Lalique started out by designing labels, then stoppers for Coty's fragrances. When Lalique discovered a process enabling him to produce luxury glassware in large quantities at an affordable price, Coty was able to achieve his vision at last... And thus, from their creative partnership, modern perfumery was born.
A tribute to the alliance of these two visionaries, Terres Aromatiques draws its inspiration from Coty's mythical Chypre, composed by the Corsican-born perfumer with Mediterranean ingredients. Provence was also a source of inspiration for Marie-Claude Lalique, who took up residence near Avignon.
This garrigue-scented fragrance celebrates the most iconic aromatic herb of the South of France: thyme, bolstered with lavandin. An impertinent pineapple note and the green freshness of cardamom, brightened with lemon, add vibrance to the sun-drenched accord. With its fruity orange-blossom facets, freesia softens the heart notes. A woody ambery base, boosted by potent vetyver and the deep aroma of tonka bean a blend of hay, almond and tobacco rounds off this evocation of a land that has inspired perfumers for centuries...
