Introducing Marem: a bold new fragrance, remastered from the 1914 original scent designed by Caswell-Massey for Alla Nazimova, the silent film and Broadway star of the early 1900s. This fragrance tells her story, with rose and red currant notes that hint at her Eastern European roots, floral and woodsy notes with the sophistication of New York; and citrus and amber that echo the freedom, creativity, and adventure of her time in Hollywood.
Nazimova was known as the `star of a thousand moods`, and this fragrance is no different--it wears remarkably well as a daytime fragrance with lush florals, and reveals darker tones as a perfect scent for an evening out.
Alla Nazimova, born as `Marem Leventon`, rose to fame in Stanislavski`s Moscow Arts Theater and emigrated to New York for her Broadway debut in 1906. In 1918, she went to Hollywood to become an iconic silent film actress and a trailblazer of feminine independence. She used proceeds from her acting to create daring independent films and was one of the earliest female filmmakers. She was also famed for creating the Garden of Alla hotel on Sunset Boulevard where she lived for much of her life, hosting salons with the intelligentsia of Los Angeles.
