Seven sassy scents that have reached icon status.
Launched in 1921, the first fragrance produced from la maison de Chanel is a bonafide classic scent that can be found on the vanities of many chic femme.
Originally, Lauder designed the perfume to be a hybrid of a perfume and bath oil; giving women the choice to dab the oil on their pulse points, or to luxuriate in the fragrance during a long hot bath.
In 1925, an oriental fragrance, inspired by the Indian Gardens of Shalimar, was crafted by Jacques Guerlain.
An elegant scent, that pays homage to the red door of Arden’s 5th Avenue salon.
The intoxicatingly exotic scent, which entered the market in 1977, conjures up imagery of the opulent orient.
The phenomenon that was put on the shelves in late 1994 is, arguably, the only unisex fragrance that matters.
Founded in 2006, by Ben Gorham, the perfume house of Byredo is producing timeless scents that could very well be tomorrow’s icons. My prediction: One day the beloved Gypsy Water and Bal d’Afrique will be able to hold its own next to the other 6 legendary scents.
