Van Cleef & Arpels - Orchidée Vanille
Orchidée Vanille is part of the Collection Extraordinaire - a special collection of six fragrances by Van Cleef & Arples, a preciously fragrant tribute to nature.

Joyous fruity harmonies magnify the floral heart and melt within multi-faceted vanilla, tender and warm, cradled in dreamy musk - feminine and sensual, absolute and bewitching.

Like a jewel, the bottle is signed with a stamp on the bottom and topped with a black lacquered cap. To personalize each fragrance, it features both name and number, an identifier used in perfume houses. The presentation box is decked in precious white and edged with green, the emblematic colour of the house - and symbol of the inspiration by nature...
