I’m  hosting this year’s Rives de la Beauté literary salon to be held at:

 

La Place Concept Store

9 rue Française

75002 Paris

Le 19 septembre

à 17h

Metro: Etienne Marcel ou Sentier

 

 

 

Virginie Roux, perfumer, owner of the perfume brand Au Pays de la Fleur d’Oranger, and co-owner of La Place, has generously welcomed us to her space.

 

The fact that you participate in Les Rives de la Beauté, and are attending an event with such a vague title as a ‘Bad Girls Perfume Literary Salon’ makes me happy. Clearly, 1) you love perfume, literature, and the arts, and 2) you’re adventurers — OPEN to exploring the unknown.

 

The Bad Girl Perfumes part of this Literary Salon are the following:

1) I’ve taken the liberty of expanding the definition of literature from its 20th century limits of the printed words on paper, to include 21st century realities that include online digital forms of communication ;

2) The style of the salon will be more like a press review of recent publications ;

3) We’ll be smelling some wonderfully wicked fragrances ;

4)Three of the publications are in French and two are in English. OUI !/ YES !

 

We will explore and discuss 5 recently released publications, after which we’ll explore a selection of fragrances they might call to mind.

 

Below is a list of the 5 publications we will discuss.

 

Enjoy!

 

Cheers,

Sarah

 

1.Book (English)

Perfume Legends II by Michael Edwards, Fragrances of the World

Of course you won’t have time to read this book before tomorrow. It’s huge ! I’ll have a copy with me to show you. Among other things, it’s beautiful.

Quote : “What makes a Legend? An accord so innovative that it inspired other compositions; an impact so profound that it shaped a trend; and an appeal likely to transcend the whims of fashion.”

 

 

  1. Périodique NEZ – ROSE (français)

La rose de Damas en parfumerie

Quote : “…Sa majesté la rose ne se contente pas de nourrir l’imagination et la créativité des parfumeurs. Depuis toujours sa beauté, son parfum et les symboles qu’elle incarne inspirent toutes les formes artistiques : picturale, littéraire, poétique ou culinaire. Les artistes se l’approprient et la réinterprètent pour refléter l’air du temps.” P. 27

Quote:    “Niche perfume… allows perfumers to flex their creative muscles. Niche is a very small but significant part of the fragrance industry. That 4-5% is driving the 96%, and that’s basically why niche is important.”
