The peony, the absolute essence of romance.
A Mediterranean legend tells the story of a beautiful nymph named Paeonia, who was so pursued by the gods that a jealous goddess transformed her into a flower with a thousand petals: the peony.
Since then, this symbol of beauty has illuminated every spring with its radiant display of colors and scents.
Naturally herbaceous or shrubby in form, and available in vibrant or pastel colors, this voluminous and rounded flower is often associated with feminine beauty and love, making it a flower of absolute romance.
In the world of perfumery, the peony is considered one of the flowers with undeniable renown.
The expert's opinion:
Whether placed in the heart note of a perfume or hidden in the base note, peony brings a delicate summer fragrance that is likely to appeal to a wide range of people.
Its fragrance, slightly reminiscent of that of a rose, voluptuously enhances our feminine perfumes with its floral and rosy notes,
its green or fruity facets, and its tender and airy touches.
Unusable naturally, the peony is imagined and artificially recreated by a perfumer in the laboratory.
Today, there are numerous perfumes with peony scents. Among the most famous are the renowned Alaïa Paris by Azzedine Alaïa, Amethyst by Lalique, Amor Amor Forbidden Kiss by Cacharel, and Ange ou Démon by Givenchy.
