Taking Notes - A new trio of scents pays tribute to Jeanne Lanvin's longtime love affair with fragrance.
While Coco Chanel was known as "Mademoiselle" within the swirl of 1920s Parisian café society, Jeanne Lanvin held the title, quite rightly, of "Madame." From her atelier on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, the couturiere navigated the whims of her well-heeled clientele through her exquisite robes de style, quietly cultivating a fashion empire that stretched into the realms of lingerie, fur, and fragrance. It was her Arpège perfume--created for her daughter, Marie-Blanche, an accomplished opera singer who is said to have likened the 62-note scent to a sparkling floral "arpeggio"--that finally gave Chanel's No 5 a run for its money when it debuted in 1927.
This month, the fashion house invokes the winning touch of its founder--whose triumphs include cult perfume classics like My Sin (1925), Scandal (1933), and Rumeur (1934)--with a new collection of fragrances. Les Notes de Lanvin features Vertyver Blance, a bergamot, sandalwood, and vetiver blend that could have been pinched from the boys, were it not for its heart of overtly feminine freesia blossom; Oud & Rose, a woody floral that pays homage to Mme Lanvin's favorite flower; and Orange Ambre, a green tea, lotus blossom, and lemon-laced Oriental that winks at the designer's fascination with the embroideries of the Far East. The glass flacons, stamped with vintage-inspired labels, look as if they could have been plucked from the Art Deco powder room of the designer's own Parisian town house--permanently on view at the Louvre's Musée des Art Décoratifs. With more fragrances to come, and an archive of Lanvin's discontinued fragrances at the ready, Madame would no doubt approve. $85 each; lesnotesdelanvin.com.
