Commune de Paris Eau de Cologne

DESCRIPTION

For Commune de Paris – the rebellious and edgy label created by three Parisian creators of fashion and product design – Astier de Villatte and Françoise Caron have imagined Cologne 1871, a subversive Eau de Cologne.

At first, it hits like an explosion of Sicily lemons, with rosemary and bergamot. But under its acid and cheeky exterior, Cologne 1871 hides the ineffable charm of the powdery scents characteristic of its time. Suave labdanum, benzoin, cedar wood and patchouli are combined with the first two synthetic molecules ever created by man – coumarin that smells like cut grass, and benzalehide that smells like almonds – giving it a unique flavour.

Contains Essences of Italian Lemon, Rosemary, Bergamot, Pink Pepper Extract, Lavender Absolute, Labdanum, Benzoin, Patchouli, Vetiver, Cedar Wood, “Benzaldehyde” created in 1866, “Coumarin” created in 1870.

DETAILS

  • Sizes: 50mL & 150mL spray bottles, also available in a 900mL splash bottle.
  • Made in France.

ABOUT the MAKER

Astier de Villatte

Astier de Villatte ceramics are handmade in their Parisian workshops. Each piece is unique, as a result of manual work and the natural method of drying. The white enamel allows an irregular glimpse of the brown clay underneath.

The production of ceramic objects is a long and delicate process. Each piece is entirely made by one craftsperson. In fact, you can find engraved on each piece the initials of Astier de Villatte and of the craftsperson who made it.
