Isabey Parfums made their debut in Paris at 20 rue de la Paix in 1924 at the height of a glamorous era, a time when opulence and glamour ruled the day. Romantic names such as Lys Noir, L’Ombre de Carthage, La Route d’Emeraudea remain references in the history of perfume.
Today, Isabey Paris has been resurrected with the help of Parfums Panouge and with it came the relaunch of its infamous luscious Gardenia perfume that uses pure Gardenia extract instead of a Gardenia accord.
Lys Noir Eau de Parfum
Isabey has launched a new version of their 1924 fragrance, Lys Noir.
Lys Noir plays with the contrasts around the lush and heady scent of lilies. The aromas of black pepper enhance the lush touch of narcotic flowers: with their spicy animalic facets, tuberose and narcissus add to this mysterious aura. In the base, patchouli utilizes its dark sensual attraction in a game between ebony and a chord of milky sandalwood. A forbidden game gently wrapped in a hint of musk.
La Route D'Emeraude Eau de Parfum
With packaging created by Julien Viard, this mythical perfume is reminiscent of the splendor of the Far East. Presented in a faceted bottle and a jewel-like case, the perfume is inspired with a touch of nostalgia of the journey leading to the Emerald Triangle (Thailand, Laos and Cambodia). It is filled with the scents of Jasmine Sambac and blooming flowers.
Fleur Nocturne Eau de Parfum
An exquisite floral bouquet which melds semi-sweet notes with nectar accords. Inspired by a universe of amethyst, sweet fruits, painted crystal and white florals, Fleur Nocturne is housed in a contemporary version of the 1925 bottle created by Julien Viard. Notes include tangerine, apricot, white peach, jasmin, gardenia, magnolia, vanilla and patchouli.
Gardenia Eau de Parfum
Intensely sensual, Gardenia is a perfume with a vibrating and velvety wake. It wakes up the senses of smell first with a point of tangerine bark from Italy, with ylang-ylang flowers, from Comores and absolute of orange flowers, then opens its heart of Gardenia with Bulgarian roses, absolute of jasmine and concrete of iris. This voluptuous bouquet tenderly rests on a bed of musc and grey amber, padded with sandalwood from India.
