Two years after launching the Maison Lancôme collection, celebrating the art of perfumery and the craft of selecting and blending scents, the French house has come up with three new scents, named Eaux Grands Crus.
Based on the concept of joining pairs of complementary aromas or extracts, the house brand signed with three big perfumers to create the new fresh scents. The result is three new unisex fragrances, called Oranges Bigarades, Iris Dragées, and Santal Kardamon.
Sandal Kardanom is a woody spicy fragrance for women and men. The designer of the composition is Amandine Clerc- Marie. The fragrance is blending Sri Lankan sandalwood essence with sandalwood distillate. The woody aroma is enriched with mandarin and pink pepper, contrasting with a green cardamom liqueur signature.
- Top Notes: Bergamot, mandarin orange, and pink pepper
- Middle Notes: Cardamom, neroli, orange blossom, pepper and liquor
- Base Notes: Sandalwood, amber wood, birch, cashmere, leather, patchouli, and vanilla.
Orange Bigarades is a citrus aromatic fragrance for women and men. The designer behind the composition is Christophe Raynaud who created a citrus floral scent mixing orange essence with bitter orange essence. This citrus duo is improved with notes of bergamot and black pepper and contrasts with a Ceylon black tea essence signature.
- Top Notes: bitter orange, orange, and bergamot
- Middle Notes: hedione, jasmine, orange blossom, pepper and black tea
- Base Notes: benzoin, sandalwood, and vanilla.
Iris Dragees is an oriental vanilla fragrance for both men and women. The composition was created by Nathalie Lorson who matched two forms of iris—a resinoid and a distillate and matched it with a sweet scent of sugared almonds.
- Top Notes: bergamot and pink pepper
- Middle Notes: freesia, orange blossom, almond, sugar, and iris flower
- Base Notes: orris, vanilla, white musk.
The bottles design are made of glass and gold, adorned with a golden plate on the back to discover the imprint of the ingredients, and on the side, revealing the secret of the Assemblage.
The fragrances are available as 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
