In perfume, as in music, there are themes that never go out of style. Accord 119 brings together in its wake a sumptuous diva, patchouli, and a rising star with irresistible freshness: blackberry. On the skin, it is an unforgettable concert!
From the very first moments, the delectability of a juicy blackberry and the joyful radiance of blackcurrant sparkle in unison, softened by the powdery notes of violet. And the bass line? It is played by a powerful essence of patchouli, accompanied by Egyptian jasmine absolute warmed by heliotrope, vanilla, and musk.Between modernity and tradition, this fragrance orchestrates the meeting of innocence and seduction. Of mischievous youth and fatal femininity. It's a perfect match!
This Accord 119 is an opus as gourmand as it is elegant!
It inspired the first fruity chypre fragrance to flow from our fountains: Accord 119. A code name? Almost! “119” is a reference to the street address of the studio where it is composed. And “accord” which is actually the French word for “chord”, evokes the many similarities between fragrance and music: two worlds where notes come together to sing in harmony. Jean JACQUES, our in-house perfumer, is also an accomplished musician. Could this be a coincidence? We think not!
DID YOU KNOW?
In perfumery, chypre fragrances are in a class of their own, with an accord of rose and/or jasmine in the heart notes with a powerful woody base structure. From Chypre, a fragrance launched by Coty in 1917. Were they inspired by the Mediterranean island of Cyprus (known as Chypre in French), which was long known as a commercial hub for perfumes between East and West? The mystery has yet to be unlocked.
