'Qu'on leur donne de la brioche!' Candle from the Parisian House of Jovoy
Located in the heart of Paris near the Place Vendome, Faubourg Saint Honore and surrounded by some of the most luxurious hotels in Paris such as Ritz Hotel, Westin, Meurice, Crillon and Costes Hotel, Jovoy is often described as the ‘embassy’ for niche perfumes in Paris. It is the largest independent store of artistic perfumery in France.
Blanche Arvoy, a colourful personality of 1920’s Paris, was the visionary pioneer of the French fragrance house of Jovoy. Her creations were presented in hand blown and chased bottles from Baccarat. Attracted by the history and quality of the Jovoy Paris fragrances from the early 1920’s, François Hénin has now created a collection of unique new fragrances.
'Qu'on leur donne de la brioche!' is a bestseller from the new collection. 'Let them eat cake!' was incorrectly attributed to Marie Antoinette, but the cynical witticism has for the first time been translated into a scent. This delightful and delicious fragrance perfectly evokes the smell of toasted brioche which fills the streets of Paris in the early morning.
Presented in stunning, theatre-red, ribboned hat box and with a burn time of over fifty hours, this Jovoy candle is unique, opulent and uses raw materials of only the finest quality.
A special gift and not to be missed.
