The iconic, timeless and pure models embody the feminine, light and graceful silhouette. The sublimated movement of a body. The models of the Repetto wardrobe recall the the ballet’s pureness, desciplines, lightness and grace. The subtle, delicate femininity comes to light.

A year later the French Maison launched its first perfume, L’Eau de Toilette. A delicate blend of pear and cherry blossom, rose and orange blossom and vanilla and amber wood. It subtly evokes the grace, the lightness and the femininity of ballet dancers.

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.

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.
