IN 2017, FRAGONARD CELEBRATES THE PEONY
This generous flower, with its subtle, complex fragrance, is the queen of flowers in China, symbolizing beauty and abundance.
The Perfumer’s inspirations
Inviting the onlooker to revel in a relaxing stroll, Peony bushes laden with their red, pink and white flowers enchant the eyes and the senses.
And although the flower itself is generous and explosive, the scent of Peony is subtle and complex... Soft, delicate and slightly fruity, it hides a tender and open heart.
Seemingly sculpted from delicate crepe paper, the Peony embodies all the joy and freshness of Spring.
The Peony expresses the contradictions of a woman’s soul, the complexity of her feelings and the modesty of her emotions...
As the French say, she may “blush like a Peony”, but always with elegance and a touch of fantasy!
