New at Colette in Paris: Klubwasser, the debut fragrance from Austrian company WienerBlut:
KLUBWASSER is the first project in perfumery by Viennese label WienerBlut. It kicks off a series of fragranced waters based on "Taschentuch-Parfuems", popular bouquets of 19th century Vienna, originally applied to handkerchiefs, a fashionable accessory of the time.
KLUBWASSER, german for "Club water", is an elegant, unisex eau de parfum inspired by classic, ample colognes of the Belle Epoque. It is based on WienerBlut founder Alexander Laubers research in antiquarian bookshops and the national archives followed by countless experiments with authentic recipes and original ingredients. A spicy, rich green affair composed of oak moss, green leeves [sic], fresh cut hay and black caraway, KLUBWASSER is produced in compliance with traditional perfumery methods in Vienna, using natural essences only.
WienerBlut Klubwasser is available at Colette in the bottle shown above left, €95 for 100 ml Eau de Parfum. The WienerBlut website also shows the limited edition bottle shown above right, "in the handcrafted crystal flacon designed by Josef Lobmeyr, glass supplier to the imperial court, in 1835" (size and price unknown).
