Niche line Histoires de Parfums created a limited edition fragrance (150 numbered bottles, each one signed by founder Gérald Ghislain) for Fashion's Night Out earlier this month, and we've got 5 bottles to give away. Here's a description of the Défilé New York (défilé de mode = fashion show) fragrance:
French fragrance house Histoires de Parfums is pleased to announce the launch of the limited-edition DÉFILÉ NEW YORK, a new amber-green eau de parfum designed specifically to pay tribute to – and to embody – the annual Fashion's Night Out celebration in New York City.
The top notes blow in a soft wind of fresh mint, bergamot and cut grass – paying respect to the many years spent in the famed Bryant Park tents and also give a nod to the new Lincoln Center location, just steps away from Central Park’s grassy lawns and fresh flowers.
The heart of the fragrance opens with the smooth scent of water flowers, pineapple and rhubarb, ushering out the marine and citrus scents of summer and heralding in the scents of autumn harvests. The warm scents of fall prevail with the addition of sweet spices like clove, cinnamon and star anise.
The lingering base notes take us backstage at the runway – full of anticipation, yelling and muddled laughter. The aroma of Venti coffees, bite-size gourmet chocolates and licorice snacks waft out from the dressing rooms and mix with the scents of blond wood and vanilla emanating from the walls and floors of historic Lincoln Center.
