French milliner Jean-Charles Brosseau will launch a new Ombre fragrance, this time called Ombre Platine. When the house launched the vaporous and powdery Ombre Rose in the United States in 1981, at Bergdorf Goodman, it was an instant hit. The subsequent feminine perfumes have taken inspiration from the original's neo-romantic style, with a very feminine powdery accord as its trademark...
Ombre Platine EDP was composed by perfumer Thomas Fontaine who has recently been appointed as the overseeing perfumer of several fragrance brands, including the heritage one of Jean Patou.
The perfume is labeled as a floral-oriental offering fruity and powdery facets; the composition opens on notes of bergamot, blackcurrant, carnal rose and fruity green apple. In the heart, we have notes of lily, coconut, milk, Damascus rose, and plum. The base notes are sandalwood, cedar wood, peru balm and vanilla.
The bottle which houses the fragrance is reprised from an antique Art-Deco mold repurchased by Brosseau and which has become the signature flacon of the house's women's fragrances.
Prices: 91€, 65€, 43€ for 100ML, 50ML and 30ML of Eau de Parfum.
