Modern floral aura
Acacia Flower, Galbanum, Tulip
Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Narcissus
Iris, Musk, Cedar
Tulipe uncovers itself in the tulip’s varnish-like crispy green note before progressing towards a green and fruity floral facet, with added jasmine and narcissus. Musk and cedar envelop the composition in a halo of modernity.
A brand new creation by Thomas Fontaine for Le Galion in 2020, Tulipe could easily be the olfactory translation of a still life painting from the Dutch golden age. Stems, flowers, and peeled fruit patiently sit together, gathered on a solid wood table. A nod to Paul Vacher’s penchant for art and his inspiring strength.
“I wanted to create a modern, floral green fragrance. The tulip opened up for me, this muted flower that we rebuild from fruity, green notes. The narcissus gave me green floral accents, jasmine gave me fruity floral inflections, while the ylang slipped in to varnish the painting over a wooden frame.” – Thomas Fontaine
The name of this beautiful brand, inspired by majestic seafaring vessels with their vast square sterns, evoked thoughts of freedom and escape. Some of the beautiful fragrances associated with the brand have stayed in our memories: Sortilège, Brumes, Snob… But this once glorious perfume house, Le Galion, had faded from our memory and consigned to the past.
Talented perfumer Paul Vacher became the owner of Le Galion in 1935, having bought the perfume house from its founder, Prince Murat. In 1936, his perfume Sortilège became an immediate success and remains one of the jewels of the house. In 1946 when Serge Heftler-Louiche and Christian Dior wanted to develop a fragrance for their fashion house, they naturally turned to Paul Vacher. He created a beautiful fragrance for them called simply, Miss Dior. The Le Galion Perfume House was now famous internationally and, by 1964, Sortilège, was being sold in 97 countries worldwide. In 1980, Le Galion was sold to an American group. Poorly managed, the company quickly collapsed. Gone with it was an image of France and of perfume, an image of elegance and quality.
More than 30 years later, like the phoenix, Le Galion Perfume House is reborn from the ashes. Back are the original, exceptional, fiery and subtle fragrances – rare luxury and refined creations.
