The perfumery market in the entire history of the twentieth century has reached an incredible scale and diversity. Hundreds of fragrances are produced annually under well-known brands. Most of them leave no trace in history. But there are specimens, loved by millions, bottles, which women do not want to part for several generations. Perfume Lanvin Eclat d’Arpege - just such a fragrance. This article is intended to tell about the history of its creation.

Janna Lanwan

The future founder of the brand Lanvin, whose name in the Russian language is traditionally pronounced with an error, through the letter "i", was born in France in 1867. Zhanna was the firstborn among eleven children, and her parents were not rich at all. When the girl reached the age of sixteen, she was arranged by a student in the atelier. It was there that the passion of Jeanne became the hats, and the girl began to create fashionable women's hats.

Soon she married and had two daughters. Inspired by maternal love, Jeanne personally creates the entire wardrobe for her girls. The talent of the seamstress and rich imagination allow her to invent unusual styles of children's dresses. Richly decorated skirts, collars, embroidered with beads and stones, flowing fabrics and unsurpassed cut do not go unnoticed, and soon Jeanne has a circle of regular customers who order not only hats, but also children's clothes. Very soon, women who bring their girls to the fitting for Joan begin to ask to make dresses for them too. She does not refuse, and soon begins to make adult clothing as well. The case quickly takes a wide turn, and in 1889, the twenty-two-year-old Lanwan opens his own studio.

Brand formation

Joan’s attachment to her daughters was obvious, and since her success as a fashion designer was promoted precisely by the children's outfits, the company’s label, like the Lanvin Eclat d’Arpege bottle, depicts a mother and a child.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, Joan's atelier was already well known. She herself was over forty, and about the same - a circle of her clients. Stout, noble, most of them with far from ideal figures, these women wanted something fresh from the costumes of the new time. And Jeanne gave them that. Her dresses, costumes and outerwear were largely built on the volume game. The fashion designer often used elements such as puffs, ruffles and pleats in her outfits. In addition, her clothes were always richly decorated, sometimes with gemstones, embroidery with gold threads and pearls. These were not fashionable suits, but they were clothes for rich people who knew their own worth and were able to spend a lot.

First flavor

By the twenties, the brand reaches its peak. Not only clothes for women, children and men are produced, but also household items, accessories and underwear. Appears and perfume line. In 1927, the predecessor of Eclat d’Arpege was released - the spirits of Arpege, to the creation of which Jeanne Lanvin was inspired by her daughter’s playing on the piano. In the name of this fragrance lies the musical term - arpeggio - which means a string by-game, in which each note can be singled out separately. Lanvin Eclat d’Arpege’s predecessor was a gift for Jeanne’s daughter, Marie Blanche, by perfumes invented specially for her.

The perfumers Paul Vacker and Andre Freis worked to create an unrivaled floral bouquet of this fragrance. The musical name of the perfume is also reflected in its contents - each note of the perfume was opened in turn and was clearly audible.

On the flacon of these spirits “Arpeggios”, the predecessors of Eclat d’Arpege, for the first time in history began to write gender and age. So, this fragrance was created for young women from 18 to 30 years.

Eclat d’Arpege: famous follower

At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the famous spirits of Lanwan “Arpeggios” celebrated their seventy-five-year anniversary. It was then that the successors of the traditions of the fashion house created a new fragrance, made in the vein of the previous one, Eclat d’Arpege.

On the lilac paunchy of the bottle of the same silhouette as in 1927, a mother and a girl are shown in the same way, stretching hands to her. Eclat d’Arpege perfume, whose name can be translated as “Arpeggio Splash”, repeated the success of its predecessor. What is their secret?
