Champs Elysées was introduced by Guerlain in 1996, as a floral woody musk fragrance for women. The scent was developed by perfumer Jean-Paul Guerlain. Moreover, the perfume is intended as a tribute to 1904’s original Champs Elysées, developed by Jacques Guerlain.
Described on the official website with the phrases: “the center of everything” and “the symbol of prestige and the influence of a city in perpetual motion”, the creation of Mr. Guerlain, represents a beautiful fragrance, completely different from the structure of the initial perfume.
With an opening that smells of peach and melon, coupled with the intense aroma of violet and anise, this fragrance was destined to be memorable from its initial moments. In the mid development, the fruity notes are replaced by an elegant and careful balanced floral symphony, shaped from ingredients such as mimosa, rose, peony and Lily-of-the-Valley. You will feel totally absorbed by the enchanting aroma, which dries down in the end to a base imbued with benzoin, sandalwood, vanilla, cedar and almond tree.
Champs Elysées comes in a bottle which represents the essence of this famous Parisian avenue. The feminine curves coupled with the image of the transparent flask are rendering the perfume an air of legend, making it worthy of a comparison with other iconic scent like Chanel Coco, Jean Paul Gaultier Classique and Paris Yves Saint Laurent. The face of the perfume and also of the video advertisement is the French actress and director Sophie Marceau. The resulting video was shot in black and white and features Sophie Marceau strolling on Champs Elysées.
