Scent: Lanvin Reinvents its Iconic Fragrance for Men

A BIRTHDAY GIFT. Some classic fragrances have such interesting beginnings to tell. One of them is Arpège by Paris’ oldest couturier house, Lanvin. First created in 1927, it was a gift from brand founder Jeanne Lanvin for her daughter’s thirtieth birthday


The name Arpège comes from Italian word “arpeggio,” a musical term which perfectly sums up the daughter’s passion in life. Today, the fragrance has been re-invented for the opposite sex, hence the Éclat d’Arpège for Men. Bursting with citrusy notes and woody undertones, the fragrant concoction is young and energetic. The olfactory moods are also in line with the brand’s sartorial offerings that suit confident gentlemen.
