Product Description:

A stunning portrait of Paris in the fashionable 50's, Audrey Blavot's L'Orchidée Terrible tells the story of Honey Martine, a young girl from England who, while on holiday with her family in Paris, is discovered by a fashion designer and thrust into the glamorous world of haute couture. Her mantra “I'll try anything once” leads Honey from one adventure to the next and stirs in her an insatiable lust for trouble.

Though the true identity of Audrey Blavot has never been revealed it is rumored that she was, herself, a model or designer of the era. A post address in the 8th Arrondissement is published in each of her books but no one has ever been seen coming or going from the residence. Fans now leave orchids on the doorstep as a tribute to the elusive author.

A stunning, satin portrait of lust tinged with a definitive air of mystery. Like creamy skin swathed in the softest fabric, L'Orchidee Terrible is an irresistible, ephemeral texture that continuously slips through our fingertips and keeps us tantalized. Orchid is almost spicy herein, a blossom of the grandest degree, comparable to jasmine or magnolia.

With it's creamy, impermeable surface Orchid practically reflects the sweet, draped gaze of amber-colored honey, so that it's luminous nature is never dampened, but barely dressed in the rich sweetness of the bee's nectar.

Between these two concentrated textures, aldehydes neatly fizz and pop, injecting an air of levity into this boudoir-worthy duo. Muguet is a beam of pure angelic light that further illuminates orchid's honey-swathed form.

As the white, bright light of muguet falls over Orchid it simultaneously rouses our princess like blossom into action. As she awakens in muguet's light, orchid begins to move, shedding the heady, sweetness of honey as it were a mead-induced dream from the previous eve. Now fully alert, orchid shimmers with piquant potential as she considers her daywear options.

White musk is the soft effervescence of gossamer underthings and feather-light leg wear. Satin is the carefully tailored, thick armor orchid ultimately settles on, the shining fabric surface reflecting orchid's own untouchable beauty. Essentially elegant and emanating old-school glamour, L'Orchidee Terrible is simply stunning.

When to wear: Tragically glamorous, this scent will introduce allure to an otherwise humdrum little black dress. Faire le mauvais amour!

Notes: Orchid, Honey, Muguet, Aldehydes, White Musk & Satin.
