GOURMAND

Type
Reproduction accord
Parts used
Fragrant molecules

Caramel, vanilla-scented, milky, balsamic, candy floss-scented.

Created by perfumers, the praline note reproduces the sweet, gourmand scent of caramel with molecules such as Maltol or Ethyl Maltol. Reminiscent of childhood sweets, praline is decadently warm, vanilla-sweet, and adds a balsamic facet to fragrances. A smooth, milky, and candy floss-scented base note.

LOLITA LEMPICKA EAU DE PARFUM ORIGINAL

Even though the booming of gourmand notes is attributed to Angel by Thierry Mugler, the first perfume from the Lolita Lempicka brand, taking up the praline note to associate it with vanilla and liquorice, made it a success as soon as it was released.

History

In perfumery, the milky-sweet note of praline owes its success to the creation of “Angel,” a perfume developed by Thierry Mugler and first released in 1992, and then quickly taken up in “Lolita Lempicka” in 1997. These fragrances marked the beginning of a new gourmand-obsessed era in the history of perfumery, taking notes like praline by the hand and bringing them to the forefront.
