In 1927, Jeanne Lanvin asked André Fraysse to create a perfume for her daughter’s 30th birthday. Fraysse was only 27 years old, but with Paul Vacher’s help he created what is often recognized as the second great aldehydic floral fragrance, and one of the five most esteemed in the world: Arpège.
In 1993, the legendary Arpège was reochestrated by Hubert Fraysse (after André Fraysse and Paul Vacher’s formula). Unlike many examples of reformulation, the modernized Arpège plays homage to its classical roots, with the carefully balanced composition and the high quality of its ingredients. It is not the same fragrance as the original Arpège, but it is a beautiful composition nevertheless. It has a radiant sweet character that is clearly in the tradition of Chanel No. 5, with the floral rainfall against a curtain of aldehydes. The gentle clarity of floral notes lends the composition an ethereal feel. Through the haze of aldehydes, the floral notes appear in rapid succession before dissolving into an elegant base. If the original formulation is reminiscent of layers of black brocaded silk, the new is of embroidered velvet. The note of vetiver is like cool glass beading against the smooth softness of an oriental accord comprised of sandalwood, patchouli and musk. Its cool mist soars about the warmth of the base notes, just like aldehydic veil was shrouding the sweetness of flower petals earlier.
