Haute Couture and Haute Parfumerie in perfect harmony. Sensual and sophisticated, Montaigne surprises with its fascinating interplay of textures created by its ingredients: superb essence of Indian sandalwood enhanced by mimosa absolute. One is exotic and intriguing while the other is typically French, exhaling a deliciously sunny fragrance…
Mimosa tinged with the honeyed accents of orange blossom absolute reveals an almost palpable sweetness thanks to a cassia absolute. Powdery and silky soft, its floral heart is contrasted by the incomparable mellowness of sandalwood while the vanilla and balsams – benzoin and labdanum – meld to create a warm, unctuous fragrance trail.
This Montaigne is a couture fragrance and the epitome of French elegance! Timeless.
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.
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.
