Houbigant Quelques Fleurs
Houbigant Quelques Fleurs - eau de parfum for women
Quelques Fleurs L'Original by Houbigant - "One of the most renowned and admired fragrances of all time, Quelques Fleurs L'Original forever changed floral fragrances when it became the first true multi-floral bouquet 90 years ago. A classic that has endured the test of time, the fragrance is wrapped in a theme of sculptured petals in a frosted and clear French glass. In a 3.3 oz., 1.67 oz., or 1 oz. eau de parfum spray. The true Quelques Fleurs formula has never been published. An ancient formula still kept in the family archives, this fragrance will never be duplicated. The blend of soft, sensual florals uses over 250 different raw materials and more than 15,000 flowers to create just one ounce of Quelques Fleurs eau de parfum. To this day it is still produced in Grasse, France, where Jean Francois Houbigant first created his perfumes in 1775." --bergdorfgoodman.com

Houbigant Quelques Fleurs L'Original
In an era when new perfumes come and go, there is nothing as exquisite as a classic that endures.
Quelques Fleurs L'Original is one of the most renowned perfume classics of all time. It is the perfume that changed all flower fragrances forever and today, Quelques Fleurs is made available to a limited number of exclusive stores worldwide.
Created by Perfumer Bienaimé in 1912, Quelques Fleurs was the first true multi-floral bouquet ever created. Up to that time, floral fragrances had been mostly single flowers or were blended with herbs and other essences.
The Genealogy of Perfumes cites Quelques Fleurs as a landmark innovation that established a totally new fragrance classification and influenced other compositions for years afterwards including many of today's important fragrances.
What makes Quelques Fleurs incomparable is not only the flowers themselves but the unique way they are composed. Just as in music it's not the notes alone but the way they are used that creates a masterpiece.A blend of soft, sensual flowers, Quelques Fleurs contains six absolutes.
