Gerald Ghislain, founder and perfumer of niche Histoires de Parfums brand will launch new perfume this year. This perfume will follow a concept of dedicating a fragrance to famous places of Paris. After 1889 Moulin Rouge from 2010 now this line will also carry a perfume reminder of other equally well-known place, L’Olympia Music Hall. The brightest starts of all times such Josephine Baker, Edith Piaf, Dalida, Gilbert Becaud, Johnny Hallyday and Yves Montand performed in this place and now create it’s hall of fame.
It’s not easy to capture the character and mood, atmosphere of the place, though I’m sure Gerald Ghislain managed to render it in the best possible way. Histoires de Parfums was first niche brand I discovered and all perfume from this house will always have a special place in my head (and in my nose too!) L’Olympia Music Hall Le Parfum will focus on smoky, woody, leathery and floral accents. Top notes include mandarin, orange, bergamot & lemon. In the heart essences of black pepper, rose berries, rose, saffron, peony, freesia and lilac will beat while the background will be built on woody notes, frankincense, patchouli, storace, vanilla, licorice, chocolate, white musk and something called daim agreement (?)
L’Olympia Music Hall will be available in eau de parfum concentration. It will be presented at Pitti 10 Fragrance Exhibition in September. For international purchases we’ll have to wait until October this year. Don’t know how about you but I’ll definitely try to do something to obtain a sample of this perfume. Histoires de Parfums didn’t let me down so far and this sounds excellent!
