Details

The name itself is a nod to the West Indies legend of the “Princesses of Malabar.” It’s a hint to the story of a mythical kingdom of the “Malabar coast,” which included the famous Kerala forest. There, a peaceful and refined civilization developed for centuries under the gracious helm of the “Nair” reigning queens. They would thereafter be referred to as “Princesses of Malabar” and epitomize women’s political leadership in the eyes of 18th century philosophers.

Why we're addicted: “Princesses de Malabar,” a modern though very feminine perfume, is an original scent, long lasting and easy to wear. It’s mostly targeted at millenials, who will enjoy its joyful and sensual composition.

A soft, musky floral fragrance based on Orris essence, it is reminiscent of the great classics of French perfumery in the Roaring Twenties. Its fruity and almost gourmand side brings a modern twist to the note, further enhanced by the aldehyde head notes. The heart of the composition boasts a voluptuous fruity + flowery trio, a combination of peach, jasmine and magnolia.

The base ring of the cap is golden, and the top is a mixture of pink and orange shades, like a precious coral from ashore the Malabar coast, or a hint to the bright and vivid colors of the Kerala forest tropical flowers.
