Crowned the Queens of Paris, the Cocottes, or “grandes horizontales” as these nineteenth-century courtesans were also known, wrote the book on the capital of pleasure. They entertained, seduced, and made headlines to the point where
they imposed their style and taste on Europe and the Americas.
Les Cocottes de Paris brings you new perfumes that tell a story centred on three scandalous icons.
As fascinating, sensational and beguiling as a fragrance can be.
Nothing could be more picaresque than the life of “La Belle Otero”, singing, dancing, contorting herself, jumping on a table, twirling her skits…
The beautiful gypsy has an insatiable nature. The queen of elegance frequented kings and rich bankers from Paris to New York, St. Petersburg and Monte Carlo. She was the most spellbinding and the most ruthless courtesan of the Belle Époque. She devoted her life to dancing, men, precious stones, gambling, parties and above all freedom.
La Belle Otero eau de parfum is an invitation to misbehave: licentious pepper, illicit absinthe, covetous violet and concupiscent sandalwood. Its evolution leaves a certain delectation on the skin..
