    Default New Fragrance: Histoires de Parfums 1889 Moulin Rouge

    From Fragrantica:

    In the heart of Montmartre, the Moulin Rouge stands as a living ode to the history the famous French Cancan. The most well-known cabaret in the world lights up Paris and never stops turning heads with each new musical revue. This legendary avant-garde landmark has launched the careers of some of greatest artists in France and worldwide, including: Edith Piaf, Ella Fitzgerald, Liza Minnelli, Colette, Mistinguett, and La Goulue, muse of Toulouse-Lautrec.

    This famous burlesque theater was brought to life in 1889, and the new fragrance is a celebration of liberation and passionate, dazzling women. Histoires de Parfums 1889 honors Moulin Rouge with a vibrant, sensual scent, full of vivacity and elegance, with just a hint of feathers and sequins. At the Moulin Rouge, the Belle Époque is eternal and timeless – the legend is told through the bottle and read through the scent.

    Histoires de Parfums is a library of scent housing 15 volumes of fragrance including men’s, women’s and unisex collections. Written by Gerald Ghislain, each bottle tells the story of a character, ingredient or historical year. Created from the finest raw materials, these fragrances are created in the longstanding tradition of French perfumery. Gerald formulates perfumes by incorporating classic olfactive families and unexpected elements to create unique scents with rich top, middle and base notes. The newest tome in the Histoires de Parfums collection – 1889 – gives tribute to Moulin Rouge, the legendary Parisian cabaret.

    The night blankets the city of Paris. A colorful beam of light bursts from the Moulin Rouge. Inside, the cabaret comes to life. People begin to whisper, sitting in anticipation. Champagne glasses clink and the curtain rises. The music builds, and in a cloud of feathers and sequins, the dancers make their entrance. Let the spectacle of senses begin!

    Spicy Cinnamon warmly mixes with Sugar and melts into Absinthe, while Rose of Damascus releases her sensuality, playfully seducing each spectator with her allure. The audience and dancers each play different roles but the music ties them together for a night of revelry and excitement. The enchantment never stops – time stands still in the Moulin Rouge.

    The show ends and the curtain falls, but the party continues. Backstage, mirrors reflect silhouettes laughing. The smell of Iris Powder and Lipstick float out to the streets on a cloud of Musk and Patchouli. The memory and scent of this unforgettable night lingers through the morning.

    1889 Moulin Rouge is a new fragrance and it was introduced in 2010.

    Top Notes: Mandarine, Prune, Cannelle
    Middle Notes : Absinthe, Rose de Damas
    Base Notes : Cœur d’Iris, Patchouli, Musc, Fourrure

    They need to give their copy writer a raise! Sounds interesting nonetheless.
    "I exist for myself, and for those to whom my unquenchable thirst for freedom gives everything, but also for everyone, since insofar as I am able to love - I love everyone. Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."

    Has anyone tried this? The packaging and bottle are interesting, but the juice is the important thing.

    Yes, I have a small decant that then I shared with another basenotes friend. It is very lovely and has a lot of development. At one point it smells like lipstick, and candy, but has an interesting grown up base. I have not worn it in a while, but I will soon and I will write some more.
