Annees Folles swings, a mysterious aromatic melody, pulsating on a warm amber rhythm. Powdery insouciance mimics the festive tunes that seep, until dawn, from the open windows of this proud hotel overlooking the Mediterranean. As rich and sumptuous as the inspiring period, Annees Folles transforms time and space. Imagine a world where the fastest interaction has nothing to do with your internet connection, but everything to do with the literal dance floor (no DDR involved). Yet despite the fancy-footwork-beat of it’s pulse, the overall impression of this scent is one of deliberate, measured luxury. Lavender on every level imparts an irrefutably cool, amethyst gaze; looking through lavender-tinted glasses engenders a profound sense of calm, and every note is softly tinged with a dusty blue powder, releasing the individual essence’s greatest, inner beauty.
In this periwinkle haze, the floral, woodsy-green spice of thyme and nutmeg are perfectly calibrated to awaken our noses to the majesty we are about to receive; yet, just as these spiced herbs trigger our consciousness they recede into the background allowing us to absorb the invigorating, yet earthy power of bright geranium and dirty vetiver. The sweetest smells are yet to come; tonka bean is lusciously cocoa buttered, while benzoin possesses the mouthwatering appeal of burnt sugar and patchouli laps over our palate, a deeply fruity intoxicant that refreshes as it steeps us further in this dream-like fragrance. Like naked skin draped in blue velvet, Annees Folles is built of soft, touchable textures that cling to skin like the memory of a lover’s touch. After smelling this scent, you’ll never question lavender’s supreme capacity to mirror sensuality. Revel in the golden aura of Années Folles, and discover your new, irresistible, blue allure.
