Today, Lancôme has appointed some of the greatest contemporary perfumers to pay homage to the brand’s founder, Armand Petitjean. The result is Maison Lancôme, a new collection of fragrances that so exquisitely touch upon and carry on Petitjean’s dream, and the essence of the House itself. This new high perfumery experience takes a creative stance: the very French art of blending. Each fragrance is crafted in the same manner that one composes a wine of the most superior grade, with a combination of varieties, origins and extractions that are all specially selected according to precise criteria.
Ôud Bouquet Eau de Parfum is a narcotic and sensual rose. Perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin, renowned for his subtle creations, blended a trio of bold woods composed of 20-year-old oud wood and smoky guaiac wood, softened by the enveloping sweetness of copahu wood. The praline rose signature, crafted from centifolia rose absolute, vanilla and praline accord, gives it an enigmatic and infinitely seductive power. Woody, oriental.
