This Fragrance Smells Like…

Folie D’un Soir has a sizzling flair with an aromatic edge – it’s spicy yet soft at the same time. The top note is pink pepper for an initially invigorating feeling that tingles your nose before settling into a seductive warmth. The heart adds a luxurious twist with a jammy and enticing Turkish rose that perfectly accompanies myrrh, an aromatic and woody note, to create a spicy floral centre. Folie D’un Soir’s instantly recognisable signature? Incense and leather join the mix for an unusual earthy tone. Finally, surprising cocoa notes complete the base, leaving a slightly bitter sweetness for a gourmand quality that pairs well with the spicy touches.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

The story behind the scent inspired the energetic rush of spices. Folie D’un Soir, meaning a night of madness in French, refers to the night Annick upped and left France for an adventure in London. Vintage leather suitcases inspired the fragrance base, and the spontaneous madness of Annick’s move is reflected through the powerful and unusual notes.


You Will Love This If…
