Description

Description

A delicate flower with a rich scent: sweet peas have a complex, fresh and sweet fragrance. Like an impressionist painting, it recreates the subtle scent of its subject thanks to a myriad small touches and an exquisite ingredient duo: a jasmine absolute from Morocco with a light floral scent and a soft, round and enveloping note of honey.

Jasmine, illuminated by the sunny radiance of ylang-ylang and the green accents of a daffodil absolute, imitates the fresh softness of petals. Their sweeter facets, brought by the honey, are further enhanced by cassia and orange blossom absolutes. Its superb perfume trail echoes the emotions that inspired its creator.

This Pois de Senteur is the epitome of delicateness!

Story

Our two founders were crazy about flowers! They were particularly enthralled by sweet peas. Félicie WANPOUILLE would plant them in her garden and decorate her drawing rooms with them, while Ernest DALTROFF wondered at their delicate scent reminiscent of spring. And better yet: he dreamed of creating a sweet pea fragrance. But how could he capture the scent of a flower that produces no extractable essence? Up for the challenge, Ernest deployed is know-how to reconstitute the scent he was obsessed with, but using other ingredients. It was a sleight of hand! In this fragrance, released in 1927 under the name Les Pois de Senteur de chez Moi – Félicie’s humorous touch – Ernest’s virtuosity is fully expressed. It is the excellence of his technique in the service of his vision. Smell it yourself: it’s a work of art!

DID YOU KNOW? Lily, lily-of-the-valley, honeysuckle, peony, lilac, gardenia, violet, and hyacinth are just like sweet peas in that they resist all attempts to extract their essence. These “mute” flowers are a source of both exasperation and inspiration for perfumers, who must face the challenge of reproducing their aroma by other means. In other words, perfumers must get them to speak.

Irrestible Pois de Senteur

Pois de Senteur is my absolute favorite. I have used it for at least 30 years. When I lived in Paris I bought it directly from the "fountain" of the Caron boutique. Since then I have moved multiple times and always ordered it for delivery by mail. The sweet scent of Pois de Senteur is addictive.

Truly Beautiful!!!

I am a long term lover of Caron fragrances going back more than two decades, and I have never been disappointed with any if the fragrances I have bought.
I bought this fragrance without even trying it first, simply going by the description. A bit rash I know, but it is absolutely as described. A floral, soft, sensuous fragrance that I cannot now live without. I wear this everyday, and I feel all the better for it.

Great Vintage

Although Im a man with a long white beard at late forties, I love this scent and bought the parfum version. It is so stylish and has a vintage style. It is relatively more suited for women but I wear whatever I like, from deep masculine to florals/animalics and feminine fragrances. I tried a lot of Caron fragrances and this together with Musc Oli, were my purchases! Both are great scents but generally, there are a lot of good things in their portfolio.!!

I love!

Luxurious perfume in the Caron style. A very naturalistic scent. I specifically bought the original empty bottle for this fragrance and I'm enjoying it!
