Let me tell you about my favorite scent, Eclat d’Arpege by Lanvin. （ ◕ //◡//◕ ）
It comes in this clear, hard plastic seamless box that’s a puzzle to open and close.
Created in 2002, Lanvin revives the musical theme of his legendary Arpege perfume. Eclat d’Arpège is classified as fruity-floral The composition is delicate, fragile and angelic. Eclat d’Arpège’s first accords are green lilac and Sicilian lemon leaves which transports us to the first day of spring. Summer’s near , flowers are in full bloom, the scent is more intense, it’s a wisteria blossom that blooms at perfume’s heart, accentuated by lush peach blossom and sensual red peony. Airy green tea leaves are refreshing. The base’s white cedar of Lebanon, gentle musk and precious amber are like an enveloping caress.
The bottle is very simple but elegant, like an upside-down bulb. The juice is lilac （ ・ ω・） and casts a lilac light.
Of course you couldn’t smell it right now, but let me describe it for you. It’s very light, very fresh, almost skin-like with fresh laundry, not too floral, not too fruity, and very pleasant, specially for sensitive noses.
I’m a sucker for packaging so let me get down to the details! （⌒ヮ⌒）
It bears just Lanvin’s mother and child logo. Simple. No orthographic cues here!
The cap is pewter with a gem on top, mounted just like how jewelers do it on rings and pendants. On the base are two gold rings, signifying the unity of mother and child.
This perfume is a cult favorite because of its heavenly, non-cloying scent. A spritz on the wrist gives me an impression of D&G Light Blue but sweeter, fresher and less intense. It stays on skin and clothes the entire day, but not the kind of smell that would fill up an entire room; this one needs personal approach to smell :) which is why it’s perfect!
Oh and did you know Cristine Reyes uses this too? lol.
Lanvin Eclat d’Arpege EDP 100mL retails for roughly P4,950 in all SM Department stores. Smaller amounts (30mL, 50mL) are also available （ ＾ ᴗ＾）
