La Collection Merveilleuse wears its name well. Combining the gems of our heritage with very contemporary creations, every last detail illustrates the overwhelming creativity, daring spirit, and generosity of our House. Refillable, stackable and customizable, the O bottle is our emblem. Free to be different, La Collection Merveilleuse is the most beautiful expression of French Haute Parfumerie by CARON.
Haute Couture and Haute Parfumerie resonate in unison. Sensual and refined, Montaigne surprises with the fascinating play on textures that emanate between its ingredients: a superb essence of Indian sandalwood sublimated by a mimosa absolute. One is exotic and full of mystery, the other is French and exhales a deliciously sunny scent...
The mimosa, tinged with the honeyed accents of orange blossom absolute, reveals an almost tactile sweetness thanks to a cassia absolute. Powdery, fluffy, this floral heart is contrasted by the incomparable velvetiness of sandalwood, which vanilla and balsams - benzoin and labdanum - melt into a warm, unctuous trail.
This Montaigne is a couture fragrance, a concentrate of French elegance! Timeless.
The third time’s a charm! After opening shops first on Rue de la Paix and then at Place Vendôme, CARON opened a new door at 34 Avenue Montaigne in the early 1980s. An exclusive fragrance was released to mark the occasion. It was a bespoke creation crafted for our new address in the heart of Paris, and since the legendary avenue symbolises elegance, we quite simply decided to put Haute Couture in a bottle! The distinctive scent of Montaigne is a tribute to French women and their legendary high class. Sublime materials, an impeccable cut, and ideal proportions make this intangible garment a classic in the CARON wardrobe. Once you try it, there’s no going back!
DID YOU KNOW?
The shop on Avenue Montaigne was the first to house our perfume fountains. In 1984, our House became the first to give its customers the ability to come fill up their bottles. It was an ecologically responsible undertaking before its time, which we carry on today in several of our shops.
