  THE ART OF CHAMPAGNE...The Scents of  Celebration:Champagne Inspired Perfumes


    It is a fact...real Champagne comes from France. This is not my saying but leading experts and generations of wine houses in the regions of France have spent countless hours and choosing the best grapes-the best Champagne grapes for their wines.


  What are Champagne grapes? According to a website, wiseGeek (wisegeek.com) "champagne grapes are the name given to a type of grape, the Corinth and should not be confused with the various groups to make wine in their champagne region of France. Champagne grapes are also commonly used as currants. These grapes are the smallest of all the seedless grapes and are the most popular for that reason".


  These precious commodities (Champagne grapes) are usually very dark and sweet that burst with flavor and that is why these wines from the French regions taste so good.


  Well like all other countries wines are produced there too and I am sure they feel that their wines are equally tasty. I am quite sure they do. I have had my sure of wines from other countries and they have tasted wonderful to me. I guess the argument could continue to say that the best perfumes come from France, especially from the region of Grasse-the capital of perfumery.


  This is true, for the longest in the history of perfumery did France dominate the choice for fine perfumes but now there are many fine perfumes made all over the globe and I have had my sure of some of the most fantastic fragrances from Italy, Spain, Ireland and the United States.


 I am a Fragrance Editor and I cherish the moment that I can sniff a unique creation composed by a natural or niche perfumer. I live for those days which in my life is EVERY DAY!


 To give respect where respect is due, my first review of champagne inspired perfumes will begin with a French niche perfumery called Etat Libre d'Orange.


  Etat Libre d'Orange has three different fragrances that are made with champagne featuring champagne accord and a liqeur of brandy of champagne.


JOSEPH BAKER (Editions des Sens). Editions des Sens is a new company and Le Parfum Josephine Baker represents this line in a gourmand scent. This fragrance is dedicated to the famous dancer from the beginning of the 20th century.
 
Le Parfum Josephine Baker is a gourmand with citrus and spicy notes that represents Josephine Baker sensuous and passionate dancing on stage.


Le Parfum Josephine Baker features grapefruit, champagne accord, jasmine, curry jungle essence, black pepper. labdanum, sandalwood and lorenox.


This exotic and regal burst of champagne was created by Cecile Matton and launched in 2010 for women only.


  VRAIE BLOND is a seductive and vivacious scent oozing with the hips of a shapely women who is platinum and dressed in sequined lame'. A take on Marilyn Monroe the beauty goddess of the screen.
  
  This intoxicating scent for women features aldehyde, liqeur of brandy of champagne, rose, peach of grapevine, white pepper, myrrh and patchouli.


  VRAIE BLOND  was created by Antoine Maisondieu in 2006.


  The essence of champagne inspired perfumes continues with the last creation by Etat Libre d'Orange with BENDELIRIOUS. This is a feminine fragrance made in colloboration with the iconic New York retailer, Henri Bendel.
   
  BENDELIRIOUS inspired by the Bendel Girl who is smart, playful, always looking beautiful, hip, interesting and of course, sexy!

 It is a floral-fruity scent filled with fun and elegant notes such as Top Notes: cherry lollipop, grapefruit, champagne accord  Middle Notes: violet leaf, iris, absolute, iris butter   Base Notes: vetiver, musk, leather accord, tonka bean.

 BENDELIRIOUS, is the house fragrance for Henri Bendel that was launched in 2009 and created by Antoine Lie.

  Etat Libre d'Orange was established by Mr. Etienne de Swardt who was formerly a perfumer for Givenchy. Etat Libre d'Orange debuted in 2006 and since then, they have a cult following worldwide.

  Etat Libre d'Orange is not only a perfumery but they are indeed a perfumery that represents The Art of Perfumery with passion and fun. Cheers to these three fragrances who reign with the toast of the bubbly.

  This series and other reviews of champagne inspired perfumes is in celebration of the forthcoming GLOBAL CHAMPAGNE DAY 2011 hosted by  consumer champagne expert and author, Jayne Powell aka Champagne Jayne that will take place virtually on Friday, October 28, 2011.

The word "belles lettres" is a French phrase meaning "beautiful or "fine writing. Since this is a term to describe a category of writing, this will pertain to my passion about fragrances. I will review niche,natural, artisan and designer perfumes from all over the world. I write with passion but will use my journalistic skills that I obtained in college. Not only will I feature fragrances but I will feature new books on fragrances/perfumes, fragrance events and interview authors and perfumers.


I hope you take this journey with me and begin your own passion for the ART OF PERFUMERY!
