L’Artisan Parfumeur is launched its Christmas Collection, with a dazzling selection of gift boxes inspired by the Cirque d’Hiver in Paris. The most magical time of year is coming and to celebrate "The circus comes to town "! L’Artisan Parfumeur has long been fascinated by the circus. Indeed, its cult fragrance, Dzing!, created in 1999 with perfumer Olivia Giacobetti translated its marvel, its sights and smells into scent.
For Christmas 2012, with the circus firmly in its blood, L’Artisan Parfumeur sought inspiration at Le Cirque d’Hiver (The Winter Circus), a working venue, and emblematic cultural monument in central Paris. Inaugurated in 1852 by Napoleon III, Le Cirque d’Hiver remains a much-loved icon in Paris today. It is a place where a cast of big cats, jugglers, musicians, horse-riders, contortionists and acrobats meets for the pleasure and entertainment of all.
Owned by generations of the Bouglione family, it remains one of the few private circuses still operating in Europe. L’Artisan Parfumeur showcases the building and its many colourful characters with the spectacular artwork decorating its collection of fragrance and candle gift sets.
