ID Parfums Oh Délice ! is the Scent of Marie-Antoinette Eating Macarons at Versailles (2014) {New Fragrance}


Marie-Antoinette and her infamous, apocryphal "Let Them Eat Cake" continues to inspire perfumery.

French mail order perfume and beauty brand ID Parfums have a new perfume for women this fall of 2014 called Oh Délice ! (Oh Deliciousness!), which as its name indicates is a gourmand opus...

The gustatory floral chypre composition is signed by perfumer Claire Chambert, who confesses to having a sweet tooth herself. Her inspiration rests on the biopic movie by Sofia Coppola about a young Marie-Antoinette set in a pastel-colored Château de Versailles laden with pastries and macarons.

Réminiscence previously were also keen to offer their own interpretation of this modern-day Marie-Antoinette drowning her marital frustrations in crème Chantilly and a sea of shoes, with Sol La, Si Do (2008).

The eau de parfum opens on top notes of cherries and pink peppercorns followed by a heart of rose and star jasmine and finally resting on praline, tonka bean, creamy osmanthus and vanilla.

Key moods according to the vocabulary used are "festive" and "playful".
