Eau de Parfum
By Le Galion
The iconic fragrance of the House Le Galion and signature perfume of the famous Stork Jazz Club in New York in the 1930s, Sortilège returns today in a composition faithful to its origins. A floral aldehyde composition, a totally seductive fragrance full of history.
Sortilège, displays an intense and mesmerising vapour trail of floral aldehyde, beginning with a soft blend of white flowers and ylang-ylang from Madagascar. The explosion of its floral bouquet reveals Egyptian jasmine and delicate notes of mimosa, sustained by narcissus. Turkish rose is the beating heart, partnered with Iris and leading into Indonesian sandalwood and vetiver on a background of animal and amber – an intense, mythical fragrance.
Sortilège has a balanced bouquet of perfect elegance: feminine, refined and distinguished – the scent of a mysterious and confident woman. Intense, elegant and sensual, it exhibits the perfect alchemy between perfume and skin.
“Sortilège, the fragrance that makes women faithful. To their fragrance” advertisement from 1965.
