ISABEY Prends-moi (Take me) EDP 50ml
“Ses levres entr'ouvertes tomberent sur les miennes et l'univers fut oublié.” - Alfred de Musset
When Isabey Paris created Prends-moi (Take me) with a misspell on its label as ‘Prends-Mois’ in the early 30’s, it was the last perfume created for North American market, with a minimalistic design. In the 30s it was a bold move to name a perfume Prends-moi (Take me) but Isabey was a daring house.
Prends-moi (Take me) is now relaunched among the iconic perfumes of Isabey Paris. But much more than a simple fragrance’s revival, Prends-moi (Take me) is an ode to love and passion. This is why the strong and emblematic red colour, a symbol of desire, is used.
Midnight in Paris. A man and a woman. They used to love each other passionately. On a bridge, they met again. A unique and carnal love, which takes their senses away. Reason is shattered. He puts his arms around her and smells her fragrance. Her red lips whisper, “Prends Moi…”
The fragrance opens with a spicy pink pepper, which leads to a dual heart where an innocent Rose meets an extremely carnal tuberose. The Red Satin Lipstick accord becomes the forbidden lover of Cocoa, which lets itself be seduced in this game of Love.
The fragrance, by Luca Maffei, perfumer:
"I was inspired for this creation by the last moment before the ultimate act of love. The adrenaline, the warmth of the skin, a kiss in the neck, the chills. So I wanted to use bold and sensual raw materials, which represented a veiled eroticism.”
