Just in: Mon Bodouir, part of Houbigant's galaxy of opulent florals. This formula was created by Master Perfumer Robert Bienaimé and originally was launched in 1919. It was Queen Marie of Romania signature perfume. On the occasion of the centenary of the formula Houbigant revived this inimitable perfume for us to admire and indulge in. Mon Boudour is an opulent incensy chypre with an animalic touch (a nod to dark musks - the prevalent base note in the early 20th century formulas). The animalic layer is built from the tart rose, balsamic Tahitian vanilla, ylang-ylang and ambergris. There is also a luxurious powdery nuance woven from orris, heliotrope, and benzoin.
Top notes: bergamot, pink pepper Heart notes: bulgarian rose, chypre, geranium, heliotrope, jasmine, orris (iris root), rose, ylang-ylang Base notes: ambergris, benzoin, musk, patchouli, sandalwood, vanilla
