La Castiglione

(1 customer review)




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.

This nocturnal, vampire-like creature has burst upon the social scene, where she brings a fragrance of newness.
She is perfectly beautiful with a boldness that makers her fashionable.

La Castiglione has odd manners. She doesn’t make conversation, babble or dance, for she wants to be an almost silent divinity, like a statue, an effigy. A photographic word about the role she wanted to play, a faithful allegory of beauty, according to Baudelaire, is all that will remain.

By candlelight, La Castiglione eau de parfum evokes a lusty, sooty commotion: bewitching patchouli, libidinous copaiba, elegant cade and caressing ambergris.

A fragrance with a dark vapour trail.

    La Castiglione evokes two different images oder sceneries in my head. She is a very synaesthetic person. On the one hand it is like over an overgrown, old graveyard at dusk or at night in fall, when the air is getting cooler and autumnally spicy, green and fresh while a morbidly victorian lady in slightly washed out black silk taffeta dress or someone in rebellious black clothes from the 70s or 80s is wandering around, chewing haribo happy cola or fizzy cola candies. This person is very sensitive but fierce, elegant yet one of a kind , peaceful but opinionated, neither brash or harsh nor gullible or weak. She is wandering in solitude, deeply in thought, as the description says: nocturnal, vampiric and somber but content and genuinely friendly. On the other hand i picture david bowie as Jareth, the Goblin King, wearing this slightly dark, mysterious sparkling scent with hidden depths full of nooks and crannies! The service was sublime, the delivery extremely fast and i really want to thank you for all the samples and the beautiful card!
