La Collection Noir
Extrait de Parfum
The owner of one of the most prestigious perfume stores breathes a few notes into our perfumer’s ear. Jimmy takes a look at the brief, and elaborates a fluffy buttery madeleine perfume stuffed with an irresistible peach marmelade and a hint of grated coconut.
This elaboration immediately reminds him of wonderful childhood memories. It was so vivid that it definitely had to be produced for our perfumer’s comeback in France.
After agreement between the two owners, the french edition of Accident À La Vanille takes shape and is offered in its most prestigious presentation.
The expression “Madeleine de Proust” qualifies any phenomenon that triggers an impression of reminescence. It can be anything that brings back or reactivates a memory, as a madeleine does to the narrator of “À la recherche du temps perdu” in “Du côté de chez Swann” (1913), the first volume of Marcel Proust’s novel.
