GLOIRE DE DIJON
Perhaps, the most delicate perfume in my line and the first one combining two forms of art - poetry and painting. Inspired by the works of D.H. Lawrence, mostly by the poem Gloire de Dijon, and the series of nudes by A. Modigliani presented at the Paris Show in 1917, the perfume is an epitome of woman's skin, a contemplation of the beauty, a reflection of frailty of a moment, whether impetuous or languid which can be seen in its notes.
The perfume is a combination of subtle tea notes, soft white rose petals, with dark earthy nuances of cepes and a clean base of slightly smoky vetiver and delicate orris root.
Fragrance character: soft tea floral.
Notes: rooibos, white tea, white rose, cepes, orris, vetiver.
