Orchidee Vanille Perfume by Van Cleef & Arpels, Orchidee Vanille is unexpected and beautiful, like women themselves. It is a sweet feminine floral that reveals a surprisingly rich texture as it unfolds.
Top notes of orange, lychee, dark chocolate, and bitter almond delight instantly with unexpected luscious intensity before settling into a floral heart comprised of orchid, Bulgarian rose, violet, vanilla, and vanilla bean. The base notes of cedar wood, white musk, and tonka bean linger beguilingly behind the wearer, making for lasting memories.
Van Cleef & Arpels was founded in 1896 as a luxury jewelry maker and shop. Two men, Alfred Van Cleef and his brother-in-law, Charles Arpels, grew famous for their innovative techniques for setting valuable stones. This jewelry line has been worn by royalty around the world, as well as political figures, socialites, and celebrities. Gradually, the company’s popularity allowed expansion, and in 1978, it released its first fragrance. This scent, part of the perfumer’s luxurious Collection Extraordinaire, was launched in 2009.
