HOUBIGANT Quelques Fleurs l'Original EDP 100ml
In an era when new perfumes come and go, there is nothing as exquisite as a classic that endures.
Quelques Fleurs L’Original is one of the most renowned perfume classics of all time. It is the perfume that changed all flower fragrances forever and today, Quelques Fleurs is made available to a limited number of exclusive stores worldwide.
Created by Perfumer Bienaimé in 1912, Quelques Fleurs was the first true multi-floral bouquet ever created. Up to that time, floral fragrances had been mostly single flowers or were blended with herbs and other essences.
The Genealogy of Perfumes cites Quelques Fleurs as a landmark innovation that established a totally new fragrance classification and influenced other compositions for years afterwards including many of today’s important fragrances.
What makes Quelques Fleurs incomparable is not only the flowers themselves but the unique way they are composed. Just as in music it’s not the notes alone but the way they are used that creates a masterpiece.
