1873 Colette Perfume by Histoires De Parfums, 1873 Colette by Histoires de Parfums is a hesperidic gourmand fragrance for women inspired by the vivacious genius of Frenchwoman Sindonie Gabrielle Colette.
The opening notes are cheerful and tart, interfusing bright citruses with bitter-sweet aromatic scents. Honeyed tangerine blends with mandarin and sparkling lime. This effervescent introduction dries down to a woody, floral heart of powdered violet, fresh and sweet orange blossom, lily-of-the-valley and lavender. The base notes create a warm, velvety backdrop of vanilla, caramel and musk. This sunny, carefree citrus and flower fragrance can be worn night or day, and is especially appropriate for warm spring and summer weather.
