Today, Lancôme has appointed some of the greatest contemporary perfumers to pay homage to Lancôme's founder, Armand Petitjean. The result is Maison Lancôme, a new collection of fragrances that so exquisitely touch upon and carry on Petitjean's dream, and the essence of the House itself.
This new High Perfumery experience takes a creative stance: the very French art of blending. Each fragrance is crafted in the same manner that one composes a wine of the most superior grade (Grand cru), with a combination of varieties, origins, and extractions that are all specially selected according to precise criteria.
Rôses Berberanza Assemblage by Julien Rasquinet
Julien Rasquinet has composed this blend of two extractions of Damask Rose. The Rose in Absolute, with its herbaceous accents, softens in the fresh notes of the Rose in Essence. The now magnified Damask Rose finds nuances in the saffron accord and the luminous, sparkling essence of mandarin brightens it. In the signature, a spice and pistachio accord accentuates the addictive Vanilla Bourbon, raspberry accord and elegant, smoky Oud. Opulent and generous, this spicy, gourmand floriental draws us into daydreams of oriental markets.
With a precious bottle made of glass and gold, the noble materials reveal the story of the Art of Assemblage. Lancôme revisits its tradition of uniting art and craftsmanship by entrusting French artists Alex & Marine to tell the story of the Grand Cru Fragrances with each unique bottle design. Drawing inspiration from the fragrance florals, including the way that they were picked and crafted into an essence, each fragrance blend is interpreted with an illustration that has been reproduced on a golden plate on the back of the bottle, like the fingerprint of each raw material. The plate acts as the transparent window of the glass bottle, emotionally and gracefully expressing the reinvention of the Flower.
