Abîme is the perfume of the depths. Its structure slowly fades into a feeling that is both heady and encompassing.
Abîme is the loss of landmarks. A tipping point in a bottomless abyss. It is the delicious feeling of letting go. It is this heady dizziness, this whispered bewitchment.
Dark and magnetic, the wake of Abîme confers an exceptional attraction.
In the essences that compose it, you will see the volutes of the world.
You will lean against the majestic cedars of the mountainous provinces of Guizhou.
You will touch the woody and lemony gum of the elemi from the Philippines.
You will cross the Andalusian plains dotted with cistus-labdanum branches.
You will smell the warm and ambery smoke of the incense, milky and round of the Palo Santo.
You will burn yourself with the Oceanian peppers from the islands of the Kingdom of Tonga.
And you will gorge yourself with Indian sandalwood, creamy and balsamic, under the Australian sun.
By bearing the name of nowhere, Abîme becomes the perfume of elsewhere.

The second half of the 19th century was marked by the royal consecration of Violet. It became the official supplier of the Empress Eugenie and Queen Isabel II of Spain. The bee, symbol of the Empress, was therefore affixed on each bottle and became an important trademark.
In 1858 the shop took the name "To the Queen of bees - Violet House" to establish its legitimacy. The committee of the 1867 World Fair particularly distinguished the work of Louis Claye, then Director of Violet, by rewarding several products of the House.
After many years of success, the various world wars and crisis weakened the perfume house. Violet eventually stopped activity around 1955. However, three young men from Paris brought the company back to life in 2017.
Becoming the successors of Violet, Victorien, Paul and Anthony gave the name rebirth. Their profiles, although different, were driven by the same passion for perfume and history. Friends and colleagues, their complementary characteristics have allowed them to rebuild a modern brand with respect to Violet’s past.
