Carven Ma Griffe Eau de Parfum, 50ml
Green, floral with an edgy freshness.
With Ma Griffe, Jean Carles combined for the very first time the Green, floral note of the Gardenia Bud in abundance with Citronellal and Styrax, to produce the sensation of almost aggressive freshness that was so totally new at that time.
The top notes are a burst of citrus notes, Bergamot and Lemon bathed in the freshness of Gardenia Bud. The heart is a profusion of Jasmin against notes of Sandalwood, Rose and Ylang Ylang.
Madame Carven: For the tiniest of the great couturiers, it all began as a question of size. Because she was only 1m55 tall and had great difficulty in finding fashions that suited her, Carmen de Tommaso created the House of Carven in 1945. Madame Carven was not afraid to overturn accepted codes by being far nicer and more accessible than her fellows in the industry. Cheerful, hard-working and intrepid, she created a style that was perfect for everyday wear, and touched with just enough fantasy.
Ma Griffe was born of this spirit of impertinence. In 1946, Madame Carven created her first fragrance, inspired by one of her landmark designs, a green and white striped summer dress. In keeping with her revolutionary advertising style, she launched it with flair by releasing hundreds of samples attached to little green and white parachutes over the skies of Paris.
Ma Griffe has come through the years to become a great classic in Parisian perfumery, as appreciated today as when it was created due to its eternally youthful attraction.
