THE BRAND: Launched in Paris in 2008, Honoré des Prés is a natural perfume house that crafts contemporary, haute organic fragrances for the modern urban woman seeking a scent with its roots in nature. Legendary perfumer Olivia Giacobetti, the nose behind some famous high street fragrance houses, has helped to formulate a range designed to capture the ‘joie de vivre’ in life’s memorable moments. Inspired by garden parties, a new lover’s embrace, holidays in the countryside, and cocktails in the sun, this range offers an inspired, reinterpretation of classic fragrance with a chic, Parisian twist.
THE PRODUCTS: An carefully edited selection of some of Honoré des Prés’ most popular organic perfumes.
I LOVE NY Eau de parfume collection, packaged in collectable NY coffee cups:
- Vamp a NY reinterprets Tuberose, enhancing it with 3 balsams, rum, and bourbon vanilla. Rich, sensual, and luxurious, this is a high fashion statement with a natural source. French Couture meets New York attitude in this refreshingly modern, wearable scent.
- Love Coconut is a modern, chic take on a summer favourite scent. This eau de parfume features top notes of coriander, tonka bean and bourbon vanilla which mingle in a base of cedar wood and organic coconut essence. It’s the subtle reminder of your favourite beach holiday in a bottle.
Les Verrines Eau de toilette collection, housed in French style jam jars:
- NuGreen is a breath of fresh air in the city. Capturing the effervescence of mint, tarragon, and green herbs in a base of botanical musk and cedar wood this is a fragrance for the lover of purity in all of us.
- Honoré’s Trip captures the joy and laughter evoked by pure mandarins. Lemons, Floridian oranges, Moroccan mandarins, mix with pepper from the Philippines in a bright happy bouquet inspired by cocktails in the sun.
- Sexy Angelic is a soft, seductive fragrance inspired by French marzipan candles. Subtle, sweet, with a herbaceous edge, the secret of seduction used by French women to meet their Prince Charming! With notes of almond, kukuta blossom, and angelica seed.
- Chaman’s Party is a unisex fragrance with an aphrodisiac edge. Vetiver root from Haiti, sacred basil from Egypt, Wood of Life from Venezuela, dried clove flowers from Madagascar all come together in a warm, sensuous veil on the skin.
