Et si tu n’existais pas/Dis-moi pourquoi j’existerais/Pour traîner dans un monde sans toi/Sans espoir et sans regret
Et si tu n’existais pas/J’essaierais d’inventer l’amour/Comme un peintre qui voit sous ses doigts/Naître les couleurs du jour (Et Si Tu N’Existais Pas, Joseph “Joe” Dassin)
One of my favourite all time French songs, it speaks of love and the lack of it. And we live and lose love in moments, and we relive our happy or sad times through many things, but mostly through perfumes. We walk on the street and suddenly we are drawn to a scent, and we are instantly back reliving sad or happy times..
It is so easy to express our feelings through perfumes, sometimes more than gestures or words. The universe of perfumes always has its own magic and mystery for me, I am fascinated by it and I want to discover its timeless appeal.. This is why I was really excited to discover a new, exclusive Marionnaud perfume brand : Héloïse de V.
Héloïse de V, is an almost niche brand, a family affair, a love story that includes France and its beautiful scenery, many flowers and aromatic herbs and passionate people who carry on the legacy of Héloïse de V. Valerie d’Andre, the lovely creator and curator of the brand, has been present to the meeting to share with us the story of this brand and its wonderful perfumes. I really liked its very minimalist and personalized approach, it’s all about discretion, elegance and impeccable taste.
There are 5 perfumes so far in the range, all very interesting and unique. You need to take your time in discovering these small treasures. The perfumes initially welcome you but you will truly feel and understand them after a while, after they are truly settled and blended with your unique personal scent. Then you will truly enjoy and discover them.
There are the moments of discovery and enjoyment in a day that are captured in the Héloïse de V perfumes.
