New York niche fragrance boutique Aedes de Venustas has launched Une Histoire de Chypre, a new perfume created in collaboration with Molinard. The scent...
...is an olfactive ode to chypre in all of her fascinating glory; her aromatic corset unlaced in refreshing notes of Bergamot, Mandarin, Neroli, Jasmine and Galbanum, the vulnerable secrets of her heart expressed in Jasmine, Bulgarian Rose, Osmanthus and precious Iris, the demure tendrils of her timeless spirit resonating in Patchouli, Oakmoss, Musk and Amber. No expense was spared in creating Histoire de Chypre, a fragrance which was fashioned from an original Molinard chypre formula dating back to the twenties.
Histoire de Chypre shares its bottle design with the Molinard 1849 collection, but is exclusive to Aedes. It is $225 for 100 ml Eau de Parfum at aedes.
Update: see a review of the Aedes + Molinard Histoire de Chypre.
And thank you for creating the first lemming of the day!
Robin this fragrance must be a good one! Chypres are my thing.
That bottle looks so good..a big musthave for me.
I am suffering in the place where I am now for the time being.
Dusan should sent his Sachertorte with orange and shaved almonds to this part of the world. Even though this is the place to be for Sachertortes..these are everywhere in Germany, CZ and Austria of course. The thing is that they are being made with cherries instead of orange and almonds, and I don't like cherries except freshly picked. Furthermore the Sachertortes here have lots of cream an tons of black chocolate and with that I have no problem whatsoever !! ;-)…
Well I owed you once, since I failed with the Jubiliation
Please stop talking about Sachertortes, LOL…I am as far from from a good one as you are from the Histoire de Chypre
OK, I get with the Holidays coming… LOL
I left a word out. Oh well.
Am going to read a bit more about Serge Lutens. But then that is the other topic..haha. It is late in the evening here and I need a good night sleep.
Robin I love this blog! Have a lovely evening over there in the western hemisphere. I love your part of the world.
This sounds EXTREMELY tempting, but it is much too pricey to buy without sniffing (which is a good thing, b/c I am broke). Just smelled Jubilation XXV and I love it (maybe even more than 25, which is also great)<----speaking of pricey!:)
marianne, i really like your line of thought, chypre->sachertorte->loads of chocolate and cream. this sure must be christmas inspired
You have a lovely evening too
Yay, glad JXXV has another fan. I love both of them, really, and yes, they are $$$$. They need to do a set of mini travel sprays of just those two, nothing else.
