Tableau de Parfums, a collaboration between Andy Tauer of Tauer Perfumes and filmmaker Brian Pera, will debut next month with Miriam, a new fragrance for women inspired by the short film of the same name, which is part of the Woman's Picture film series:
Miriam, the first fragrance of the Tableau de Parfums line, reaches back in time. It is a fragrance inspired by the first episodic short of Woman’s Picture, featuring Ann Magnuson in the title role, which gives life to a character in the middle of a storm of memories and an uncertain future.
Andy Tauer on Miriam’s creation: “I have seen the movie MIRIAM over and over again. From the very beginning, I was sure that any perfume inspired by Miriam must reach out. It is very present, and without being overpowering it makes itself heard, from the first spritz. It is present but gets never loud. You spritz it in a room and the fragrance will instantly add an aura to this room, fill it with a fine fragrant air. You spritz it and you go “ahh!”. You find this “ahh!” in one of the first scenes of Woman’s Picture with Ann Magnuson, who plays Miriam, a home shopping network saleswoman, spraying a perfume in front of the camera. My challenge was to come up with a fragrance that is born in the forties of the last century, but created today: How to find an aesthetic language that bridges this gap! How to create a fragrance that conserves this vintage spirit but fits with Miriam who lives today. I hope I managed. Miriam is definitely vintage, or rather vintage-like.”
The notes feature bergamot, sweet orange, geranium, violet blossom, rose, jasmine, ylang ylang, violet leaf, lavender, vanilla, orris and sandalwood.
Tableau de Parfums Miriam will be available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum. It will be introduced at Luckyscent's Scent Bar in Los Angeles on 10/7.
