Lanvin Pretexte - perfume for women

Prétexte by Lanvin - "In 1924, when Jeanne Lanvin created Lanvin Parfums SA...she was guided by the conviction that perfume was a vital part of her vision of fashion and life in general. ... The stakes were raised in 1925, with the arrival of a young perfumer names André Fraysse (then aged only 27) whose talent had been noted by Jeanne Lanvin. He joined the Nanterre laboratories and Arpège was his first creation in 1927. ... This success was followed by many more olfactory delights: ...Prétexte in 1937."
