Another day, another fragrance.
A long lasting scent. One for the more mature woman in my opinion. Arpege by Lavin is strong and leaves trails of woody winter nights by the fire. It’s definitely a cosy smell once the initial burst of strong rose and patchouli dies down.
Top notes are: bergamot, aldehide, peach, orange bloom, honeysuckle, orris.
In the heart there are: rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang, coriander, sensitive plant, tuberose, violet, and geranium.
The base consists of: sandal, vetiver, patchoulis, vanilla and musk. The bottle is lovely, too. The beautiful figures on the black misted background representing mother and daughter (wife and daughter of the perfumer), who are getting ready for the ball. In October 2009 the house of Lanvin presents Arpege 120, their popular fragrance created back in 1927, reformed in 1993.
The fragrance is composed of such notes as aldehydes, peach, bergamot, orange blossom, honeysuckle, iris, rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang, coriander, mimosa, tuberose, geranium, sandalwood, vetiver, patchouli, vanilla and musk.
