Côte d’Azur perfumeries bring out the scent of garden flowers in fragrances that make you feel light-headed. Nature awakening, and along with it, the desire to be free.

The flower of the year
Narcissus Eau de Toilette bursts forth amidst scents of mandarin and bergamot, jasmine and rose, with honey, wood, and musk notes. An olfactory walk in the garden!
Atelier des Ors
Pink Me Up from the Frivolité collection, inspired by the bubbles and notes of champagne, invites you to be carefree. Its floral and fruity scent is both playful and festive.
Its deep pink bottle encloses gold leaf fragments diffused at the same time as the fragrance.
L’Horloge de Flore
The fragrance sundial.
The first four fragrances (out of twelve to come) make up this range created by Grasse perfumer Hélène Prévot, based on the work of Carl von Linné, an 18th-century botanist who created his own “floral clock”: a sundial scented with flowers at their olfactory paroxysm.
Each of the four jus conceived around a flower: lily, iris, mimosa, and geranium.
A mixed jus
The fragrance is a vibrant amber with its seductive scent of rum and cinnamon.
A Corps Cuivré, the latest fragrance from La Collection Privée, summons desire and refinement. Such sensuality!
