The perfume created by Paloma Picasso – the daughter of the famous painter. This a fragrant self-portrait. Her maternal grandfather was a perfumer, so, as a child, she was familiar with combining smells, creating scents. Her artistic talent is something she inherited from her father, therefore she was very successful in her work as a jewelry designer for Yves Saint Laurent and Tiffany & Co. Her favorite perfume is Chanel Nº 5, so she wanted to create a perfume with an aldehydic accord. Red is her favorite color and black is a symbol of power. This perfume is an elegant floral chypre with a Mediterranian temperament, but because the perfume was very complex, it was very hard to market. She was afraid that her associates would change the formula, but luckily, this didn’t happen. The fragrance opens with a fresh and spicy note of coriander, angelica and carnation. Aldehydes are in harmony with ylang ylang, jasmine and hyacinth. Woody notes of oakmoss, patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver, and tobacco blend with original animal notes (castoreum, civet, and musk).
