Launched in 1993. Like ‘Narcisse Noir’ this is a Caron fragrance that inspired a film “Scent of a Woman”. An updated, crispier, brisker, sweeter rendition of the 1933 ‘Fleurs de Rocailles’. Ingredients include violets, lilac, jasmine and aldehydes. The Caron connoisseur will note that musk, which plays such a pivotal role in the earlier version, is omitted here.
In 1904, Ernest Daltroff established Caron in the world of High Perfumery, opening its doors at 10 rue de la Paix, Paris.
Ernest’s love for his colleague Félicie, was a constant and significant influence in his creations. Together, they created powerful concept fragrances such as “N’aimez que moi” in 1916. “Tabac Blond” in 1919. “Fleurs de Rocaille” in 1933 as well as the legendary “Pour Un Homme” in 1934. Behind the creation of every fragrance lies a fascinating story and their symbolic names often evoke particular events within the world of luxury.
