Éclat d’Arpège, a revisit of the perfume signed Karine Dubreuil
In order to revisit its legendary fragrance, Lanvin chose the perfumer Karine Dubreuil. Although the latter was born in Grasse, she nevertheless did not come from a family of perfumers. After starting out at the Florasynth company (now Symrise), Karine Dubreuil made a stint at Drom, before joining the Mane company in 2002. Currently, Karine Dubreuil works for the perfume house L’Occitane. On this subject she affirms “It’s true that having grown up in Grasse, I had a Provençal sensibility, which surely brought me closer to Occitane …” Demanding and talented, there is no doubt that Karine Dubreuil is a perfumer of convictions .

Fruity floral notes bursting with sensuality for Eclat d’Arpège < / h2>
To revisit the great classic of Lanvin, Karine Dubreuil wanted a composition between femininity and sensuality, between spontaneity and elegance. Because Karine Dubreuil wanted to keep the soul of “Arpège”, her revisit is also a fragrance of love, a real call to feelings. “Éclat d´Arpège” opens with the citrus and ultra fresh note of Sicilian lemon. These are quickly joined by the lilac. The lilac flower comes to us from the Middle East. It has been cultivated in Europe since the 18th century. The lilac flowers are grouped together in more or less dense pyramidal clusters.
In perfumery, the noses use the lilac flower from other natural essences and in a synthetic way. The lilac gives off finely flowery, balsamic tones, sometimes close to the scent of lily of the valley. The heart of “Éclat d´Arpège” is both flowery and fruity, and combines peach, wisteria and red peony. Straight from Japan, wisteria is known for its hardiness, as it resists temperatures down to -20 °. In May and June, the wisteria flowers and offers ultra-scented clusters, blue or white. In perfumery, wisteria is considered a “mute flower”, meaning that it cannot be extracted essential oil. The wisteria is then reproduced synthetically.
It offers floral, fruity and citrus tones at the same time. Finally, the base of “Éclat d’Arpège” is woody and amber and combines sensual and enveloping notes such as white musks, amber and cedar from Lebanon. The Art Deco style ball still serves as a bottle, thus recalling Jeanne Lanvin’s love for her daughter Marguerite.
