Maison Van Cleef & Arpels celebrates its 35th anniversary since their First perfume was released. Van Cleef & Arpels Un Air de First is the Maison’s latest fragrance and one of the most elegant scents in the world. Like their Jewels and watches, Van Cleef & Arpels is a timeless brand that crafts all its perfumes with small attention to details. That’s why all Van Cleef & Arpels perfumes reflect one’s lifestyle and positive attitude.
Created by Nathalie Gracia-Cetto, Un Air de First Perfume has a floral composition accompanied by aldehydes and essences of galbanum. Even though it seems a little strong at first smell, Un Air de First quickly calms down thanks to its sensual notes of Egyptian jasmine, Bulgarian rose, vetiver and cotton essences.
Top notes: Aldehydes, Galbanum
Heart notes: Bulgarian rose, Jasmine absolute
Bottom notes: Musk, Vetiver
Sillage and longevity are excellent for Un Air de First. Feminine without the posy of roses, sophisticated without being unreachable, fresh and sparkling without being an aquatic.
Working on an iconic perfume, remaining faithful to its spirit and style, while giving it a new lease of life is the best present you can give a perfumer.
When I was a child, my mother wore First and I wanted to give myself the gift of a perfume representing the woman I have become, adding poetry to its elegance, creating a future out of the past, and wearing this perfume as an expression of happiness …
I love Van Cleef & Arpels! Staying at the Ritz, I love the Van Cleef & Arpels boutique ‘down’ on the Place Vendôme with its vèry kind staff. I love their jewels and I have a total weakness for their watches. From the early days Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme is one of my all time male scents, and First one of the most beautiful an feminine fargrances èver made. Van Cleef & Arpels perfumes always impresses me with its eye-catching design and alluring decoration. .
Van Cleef & Arpels Un Air de First comes in 60 ml and 100 ml Eau de Parfum. Form of the flacon follows traditional ‘First’ shape, now it is pearly white and it is decorated with an elegant white atomizer.
