Le Deuxieme Parfum is the second fragrance created by Pauline Rochas and Carole Beaupre.
Delicate yet mysterious, Le Deuxieme Parfum is a sensory articulation of love. Like a lover’s hand that gently brushes your skin, Le Deuxieme Parfum embraces your senses, transcending the spiritual while awakening the physical.
A gentle floral balance of seven essential oils — Peru balsam, Bergamot from Calabria, Tunisian Orange Flower Absolute, Ylang Ylang from Madagascar — activates Anahata, the Heart Chakra, an energy center nestled between the breasts along the central vertical axis of the spine.
When engaged, Anahata — Sanskrit for “unhurt, unstruck, unbeaten”— opens the body and soul to the radiating life energy of love. The heart blooms like a fragrant flower — a harmony of passion, devotion, and sensuality. Like an alluring glance, le Deuxieme Parfum is ethereal but potent, fusing the spiritual and the sensual in a tender embrace.
After a successful collaboration on Le Premier Parfum, Pauline Rochas and Carole Beaupre once again tapped renowned nose Patricia Choux to create Le Deuxieme Parfume. Their shared French heritage and deep appreciation for grand noses and classic perfumes made for another seamless partnership. Like its predecessor, Le Deuxieme Parfum does not have traditional top, heart and base notes. Choux embraced the opportunity to once again work with a minimal palette, creating an elegant and immaculate formula from seven raw ingredients.
