"This perfume is inspired by a woman who carried her numerous accolades and characteristics with all the breeziness that French women are famous for. The first black film star, world renowned dancer, bi-sexual, wartime spy and American expat living in Paris - Josephine Baker is still the epitome of timeless, glamorous cool.
This scent transports you to her dressing room where she’s just coolly countered her many different facets all at once. As soon as the coast is clear she indulges in a dramatic moment, just for her own pleasure, hurling her powder puff across the room. It creates a plume of scent - from the bowl of berries, untouched champagne coupe and the countless bouquets of roses around her. Even the coolest cat deserves a melodramatic moment.
Passionate French rose laced with tart red berries, playful violets and succulent orange flesh. Completed by a heady fusion of brandy, chypre, spice and balsamic. A tinkling, easy, bold laugh of a scent that leaves you spellbound.
Have a look at Nonchalant's contradicting paired scent, Infatuated. Each pair is harmoniously crafted so that each highlights and subdues certain qualities of the other to create a unique third or fourth scent depending on which way round you layer.
50ml Extrait De Parfum, 20% Oil Concentrate, cruelty free, unisex, and ecologically responsible."
