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.
Harmony, precision, classicism, style and restraint are the values Cléo de Merode acquired at the Paris opera. But her controlled appearance conceals a more ambiguous nature. Like a fierce hetaira, she stands out in a sort of brothel that has become the foyer of the ballet school.
She was considered the world’s most beautiful woman in 1896. An absolute star, she captured her contemporaries’ imagination.
Melle Cléo eau de parfum is a sort of olfactory choreography with unpredictable variations: Botticellian rosewood, night blooming cereus
worthy of Asparas and cotton-flower for the most angelic Cocotte.
Top notes: rosewood, bergamot and litchee.
Heart notes: night blooming cereus, ylang ylang and rose.
Base notes: cotton flower and lichen.
