Van Cleef & Arpels has launched 22 Vendôme, a new addition to the brand′s Collection Extraordinaire. 22 Vendôme is named for the brand's flagship boutique in Paris, recently renovated by the Jouin Manku design studio.
...On the stairwell, Art Deco-inspired roses are revealed in full bloom as they irresistibly attract the gaze. To celebrate this renovation, Van Cleef & Arpels decided to open a unique Salon des Parfums at 22, its historic birthplace.
A new olfactory creation imagined by the perfumer Quentin Bisch celebrates this momentous occasion: 22 Vendôme, a fragrance dedicated to the Maison’s historic address. Just as exclusive as each of the scents in the Collection Extraordinaire, this fragrance symbolizes the Maison's special bond with this location.
A jewel of roses
The emblematic Art Deco rose motifs of the Vendôme salons inspired perfumer Quentin Bisch for the creation of the fragrance. This unique floral blend, crafted like a jewel, emerges after a fruity opening that combines pear and bergamot essence. It unites with iris to create precious and elegant middle notes. At the base, patchouli and vetiver provide a truly modern chypre trail, while tonka bean adds an unexpected gourmand touch.
Van Cleef & Arpels 22 Vendôme is available in 75 ml Eau de Parfum.
