Arpege - Lanvin

I recently bought my beloved Arpege as I had almost run out...heaven forbid!

The online site I bought it from asked if I'd like to review I did!


Draws Compliments, Long Lasting, Great Smell

Best Uses:

Evening, Everyday

Describe Yourself:


Fragrance Type:

Oriental/Spicy, Floral, Woody/Earthy

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Arpege, to me is a mature classy woman.
Although I first started using it when I was about 28..
The original 1927 formulation of Arp├Ęge is very true to its name--a musical concept of arpeggio--in a sense that individual notes are played distinctly one after another instead of simultaneously. Rose dusted by opalescent aldehydic shimmer unfolds first, followed by rich jasmine.

The Falcon is a Black glass orb, boule noire, in Art Deco style and sits on the dresser delighfully.
The golden image stamped on the glass by Iribe depicts mother and daughter, Jeanne and Marie-Blanche preparing for a ball.

This is a serious fragrance- The notes of the 1993 version include bergamot, aldehydes, peach, orange blossom, honeysuckle, iris; rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang, coriander, mimosa, tuberose, Parma violet, geranium; sandalwood, vetiver, patchouli, vanilla, musk

I always receive compliments when I wear this. I use it day and evening..although I'd suggest its more of an evening perfume

If you haven't tried Arpege...why don't you?
