French Maison Mauboussin was founded in 1827 by the French jeweler M. Rocher and his cousin Baptiste Noury. They established a retail store in Paris. After the Great War, the sense of equality was stronger than ever. This was a time when the Maison flourished providing ample attention to women’s jewelry.
From the ‘Reflections’ line started in the 1930’s up to the contemporary designs, Mauboussin jewelry remains a highly desired brand by many collectors. Over the years, there have been many exhibitions with different themes organized by Mauboussin. While the 1920s and 1930s were the best era for the promotion of emerald, ruby and diamond themes, the 1940s and 1950s asserted the style of the French Maison which resulted in the creation of beautiful pieces in a completely new style. The 1950s, on the other hand, marked the arrival of the Naturalist themes and the sense of movement and dynamism.
Mauboussin opened a boutique with display windows on the famous Place of Vendôme and started offering high-quality jewelry in a more moderate price range. In the 1980s, the focus was on the contrast between light and shadow. All of the shapes were created to suggest sensations which appealed to their clientele.
A new area began when, in the same decade, the Maison started to design and manufacture exquisite watches for men and women. It was the year 2000 that that saw the launch of the jewelers first fragrance, the self-titled Mauboussin for Women. From its launch, this fragrance is the Maison’s signature and has been loved by many women.
The celebration of 20 years since the launch of the first Mauboussin fragrance has been marked with a new creation that honors the iconic flacon and the most popular fragrance of the French Maison. The first Mauboussin fragrance, composed by perfumer Christine Nagel, is still known today for its fantastic, dense, and intense, dark-oriental, plum-spicy composition, with its famous cabochon diamond-shaped flacon that was created by Thierry de Baschmakoff.
Created by perfumer Ilias Ermenidis, Mauboussin in Red is a brilliant and poetic creation that, with its fruity aromas, creates an additive effect using a blend of red apple, sparkling black currants, and sparkling bergamot. The heart pays tribute to the red and passionate signature of the new creation with a mixture of Bulgarian rose and red peonies, slightly sweetened with a fruity touch of nectarines. The warm, lightly gourmand and milky wooden signature is created of ambrox, sweet pralines and milky wood. As the brand states.
The new creation is joyous, addictive, and absolutely feminine. Mauboussin in Red will be available as a 100ml Eau de Parfum. Come into the beautiful world of Mauboussin.
