The Atmosphere: "Sipping coffee with rum at a Parisian night club of the 1920s, watching French and American performers alternate on stage."
Perfumer, Pissara Umavijani, describes her inspiration for La Rhapsodie Noire: "One evening, I was crossing at the Pont-Neuf. I was listening to "Rhapsody in Blue" and paused to take a look around me: even more so at night, Paris seems to have kept its fabled charm unaltered by time. My imagination was fuelled by images and sensations of the "City of Light" in the 19202, a time of extraordinary energy and creativity. I decided to create a nocturnal, vibrant fragrance dedicated to the Paris of "Les Années Folles". As a nod to the music and the night that inspired me, I named it La Rhapsodie Noire."
In the opening, tonifying, energetic notes of Coffee and Rum, along with Cigar nuances evoke the atmosphere of the 1920s Parisian cafés.
At the heart, Clary Sage and French Lavender provide fougère-like aromatic freshness, seamlessly leading to a suave floral blend of Mimosa, Broom and Jasmine Sambac.
In the base, earthy ingredients, Patchouli, Oakmoss, Oakwood and Vetiver support the composition, while the gourmand vibe is reinforced by Sandalwood, Tonka Bean, and Madagascar Vanilla.
