Sous Le Manteau - Essence du sérail
Essence du sérail - "Essence of the Harem": Perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer takes us into the sinful bedchamber of an oriental harem. She relies on the fabulous seductive power of beguiling flowers: ylang ylang, jasmine, lily of the valley, heliotrope, orange and rose blossoms. Their sensual aromas are highlighted by the fruity charms of sweet plums and plump peaches. This love potion perfume is based on an aphrodisiac recipe from France that was handed down from the 19th century.
Bergamot oil, ylang ylang oil, jasmine, lily of the valley, orange blossom, rose, plum, heliotrope, peach, sandalwood, ambrette and vanilla.
There are two different types of outer packaging for this perfume: one is illustrated with an atlas figure, the other one with a caryatid. The atlas figure was created by sculptor Aimé Millet, the caryatid by André-Joseph Allar. Atlas and caryatids are artfully crafted components from classical architecture. Regardless of the picture motif, all packagings contain the same love potion perfume. Both motifs were photographed in Paris - as universal symbols of the eternal city of love.
