After that, it was pretty clear where we wanted to go with the fragrance because the name is so evocative. We wanted something romantic, feminine and opulent, but with a modern edge.”
An an embodiment of what the atelier is all about, the fun, floral scent is a celebration of creativity from its unforgettable bottle to the playful notes that make up its beloved fragrance.
