Organic Perfume with a French Touch

Honoré des Prés Oh-là là Organic

Have you ever rolled around in dew-kissed blades of grass in a haute couture ballgown made out of organic muslin with the prince, or princess, of your most intimate dreams? Well, I haven’t either- but I plan to, and when I do, I will be wearing a perfume by Honoré des Prés. Composed of five different scents, each one more evocative than the next, Honoré des Prés is the first 100% natural, organic French perfume to hit the American market.

Olivia Giacobetti The greenchild of nature-friendly perfume manufacturer Robertet and the gifted parfumer, Olivia Giacobetti (if you’ve swooned in front of a Diptyque candle, you have an idea of the olfactory miracles that Giacobetti is capable of), Honoré des Prés will make its northeastern debut at Bergdorf Goodman’s in April, when all things come up lovely.

Sexy Angelic, Nu Green, Chaman’s Party, Honoré’s Trip and Bonté’s Bloom…each scent has a story, each story, an aura. Mint and tarragon combine in Nu Green, birch bark and rain embrace in Chaman’s Party, while marzipan and almonds beckon in Sexy Angelic…. Ephemeral and haunting, each scent is a true original that will keep you coming back for more. Scratch and sniff here or send a perfumed email to [email protected] for more information about this delicious brand.
