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 varities, origins and extractions that are all specially selected according to precise criteria.
Jasmins Marzipane Eau de Parfum stands out with its lively enveloping femininity. Perfumer Dominique Ropion blended a duo of the highest-quality natural hand-picked jasmine. Sambac jasmine absolute, gathered at dawn from the first harvests, conveys explosive, green and radiant luminosity, while grandiflorum jasmine absolute from the last summer harvests brings more opulent and animal tones with leathery and fruity accents. The almond wood signature softens the entire creation. Bourbon vanilla extract, which exalts the smooth, sensual, spicy and leathery facets of the scent, is accentuated by creamy sandalwood, cashmeran wood and musks. Woody, white, flower, floral.
