French Bouquet is a homage to the legacy of French perfumes in the 1970s. It showcases authentic Parisian sophistication and the capital's passion-filled nights, embodying the ultimate in French elegance. Created by Amélie Bourgeois (Flair), French Bouquet is a traditional chypre in which bergamot, rose, jasmine, oak moss and musk are revealed and sublimated by aldehydes. Their slightly oily and metallic potency gives a powdery appeal, as well as whitens and brightens the flowers in the chypre accord. This fragrance is the quintessence of French perfume, said Vesa Kalho, Beauty Buyer at Harrods.

PERFUMER: Amélie Bourgeois "During a meeting, David confided to me that his grandmother used to perfume her skirts and underskirts. She particularly liked aldehyde chypre. One day, I came back with a very contemporary aldehyde chypre fragrance as a tribute to his grandmother."
