The fragrance of chic, Parisian je-ne-sais-quoi, secret geometry of grace.

Main notes
Mimosa, iris, galbanum, cedar

The olfactory signature
Ambrette seed, which acts as a musk for a silky layer over the entire fragrance.

A straight line of indubitably elegant iris, precisely facetted by the powdery green character of a galbanum and mimosa duo. Floral details and wooden embellishments are adorned with musk and ambrette to round out the sharp edges.

In 1937, Le Galion was a well-established House, allowing Paul Vacher to try out more experimental ideas in his collection. He started to work on the “soliflore” varieties, in which one flower gets the star treatment. A nod to the Art Deco period, which peaked in the 1930s, Paul Vacher sculpted this Iris in a symmetry of mimosa and galbanum, making Le Galion a reference in French perfumery, attentive to the arts and in step with its time.

A word from our perfumer
“A beautifully-balanced iris, neither too powdery nor too earthy. Light as a feather but well and truly present. This is what the iris flower would smell like if a perfumer could extract it.”
