FLORAL

Type
Reproduction accord

Very fresh floral note and airy. Between rose and lily of the valley.

An efflorescent note that brings to mind the delicate, sweet scent of spring. Peonies are garden-fresh and softly fragrant—recalling the scent of rose or lily of the valley. The light, airy note is particularly cherished in fine perfumery for its refined, elegant qualities.

Production

A noteworthy scent in the perfume world, the delicate fragrance of peony is recreated using raw materials in a clever attempt to produce a scent that is almost identical to the flower. And the scent is as pretty as the peony itself: a large, round flower that blossoms in shades of pink, red and white.

PLEASURES

Created in 1995, Pleasures is part of the trend of pure and lively perfumes called Floraux Frais. It is the first to offer a top note of pink pepper, which gives way in the heart to a green floral accord of peony, rose and lily of the valley. Evelyn Lauder wanted a luminous and elegant fragrance that would capture the clarity of flowers after a spring rain. "I wanted the perfume to have an elusive texture. For the first time, a perfume opens like a flower in the sun, revealing its scent little by little."

History

Stories of the peony flower permeate Greek mythology: the name “peony” is thought to derive from Paean, a physician to the Gods, who worked to heal Hades’ and Aries’ war wounds. Legend has it that Paean’s mentor, Asclepius, grew envious of Paean—leading Zeus to transform the physician into a peony flower for protection.
Since Antiquity, peonies have been prized for their medicinal qualities. Concoctions of peony seeds, blossoms and roots were mixed and milled for their antispasmodic, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory properties.
