Perfumer Sophia Grojsman
Paris is one of the few perfumes that is 80’s in style, size and exuberance but can still be worn today without irony. It’s a cartoon-like rose with candied violet. Like many of its cohort, Paris has a battle-cry topnote, but by the heartnotes the rose grows citric and astringent, lending a sweet/tart quality to the accord. It has a crystalline quality similar to Guerlain’s Nahema, but is far less dense and juicy than Nahema. Paris gains a woody, musky quality in drydown, but remains true to the artifice and exaggeration of its era and is proudly an 80’s Huge Floral.
