French Maison Repetto was founded in 1947 and it first dealt exclusively with the production of ballet shoes, later becoming a symbol of with Parisian chic with its lines of shoes, bags, accessories and perfumes.

Dance With Repetto, the new perfume from Maison Repetto, is an ode to the release of the dancer and the woman. She expresses her emotions and femininity with her energy and passion. Vibrant! Passionate! She lives the moment with energy and everything in motion.

Drawing on the very heart of their history, Repetto chose dance as the inspiration for a beautifully choreographed new fragrance. With the power to trigger sensations, Dance with Repetto is an olfactory hymn that expresses the vibrant and liberating nature of dance.

Created by Oliver Cresp, Nathalie Lorson and Annick Merando, Dance with Repetto is a delicious and contemporary fragrance that opens with a play on textures and contrasts, between the crunch of a Raspberry Macaron and the delicate floral freshness of Magnolia and Freesia. At the heart of the perfume, Jasmine Petals bind the powdery smoothess of Heliotrope to the voluptuousness of Peony. Finally, the warm almond notes of Tonka Bean are enveloped by the caramelised sweetness of sensual Vanilla and Patchouli.

The bottle gracefully evokes the slender figure of a dancer. The finely engraved glass seems to ripple in the light.

Behind this image of freedom lie two dancers from the Opéra: Marion Barbeau interprets the choreography created by Sébastien Bertaud.

Behind the scence, the making of….

The choreography:

A sensual and impromptu dance that is unique and poetic, shot spontaneously by the filmmaker Bérénice Rapegno.

Who is she, deep down? Undoubtedly a modern woman. Instinctive, driven by her enthusiasm and passions. Inspired and inspiring, enlightened and enlightening… A French woman – as fiercely French as Repetto – who knows how to express herself through dance, with all its feelings and emotions. Graceful and pure, her movements are quite simply an expression of freedom. Her energy is a declaration of life.

Dance with Repetto is available as 40, 60 and 100ml Eau de Parfum.

Maison du Chocolat Thierry Mugler Chocolat .jpg

For twenty-five years, the absolute glamour of the iconic Mugler fragrance Angel has captivated the senses into a unique olfactory vortex.

Nicolas Cloiseau has captured the deliciously surprising notes of this fragrance, blending bergamot, red fruits, praline, vanilla and patchouli, and interpreted its three accords to create three rare chocolates, vibrating with the legendary Angel notes.

CELESTIAL –  First tasting note, Top note.

A delicate fruit paste with a crisp acidulous attack of moist mandarin, followed by the citrus notes of elegant bergamot with lemon zest, gently tempered by a milk chocolate ganache.

DELICIOUS – Middle tasting note, Heart Note.

Nostalgic vanilla cotton candy with red fruits and slivers of moist cranberries rev up the delicate layer of praliné with notes of biscuits and nuts enrobed in a layer of dark chocolate.

VOLUPTUOUS – Final tasting note, Base Note.

An intense patchouli attack with woody and vanilla notes, almost smoky, in a warm sensual dark chocolate ganache with notes of honey and vanilla bourbon.

STAR – A nod to Angel…

A star with chocolate from Madagascar featuring acidulous notes of red fruits on the palate then notes of nuts persist.

During one of my recent visits to London, I enjoyed an incredible brunch in a smart, refined place, where the magnificent atmosphere of the rooms, furnished with opulent floral compositions, ensnared my senses almost at once. While admiring the floral scenery, my brunch included delightful toasts topped with honey and marmalade and these gourmand facets inspired me to bring to Equinox Bloom a trendy, modern inflexion to the generous floral bouquet. To me, this luxurious and abundant refinement reflects Penhaligon’s generosity in fragrances in a perfect ways.
