Parlez-Moi d’Amour is the second fragrance released by John Galliano, a floral fruity feminine which arrived on the market in October 2010. Creation of the perfumer Alienor Massenet, Parlez-Moi d’Amour represents John Galliano’s wish “to create a very feminine musky scent, that would exalt modern and surprising contrasts from a classical chypre structure, bypassing the norms”, according to the description from the official website.
Given that at first my wife and then I become huge fans of Galliano’s work (loved the debut perfume John Galliano by John Galliano!) this new creation was very appealing for us from the start. As a result, we tested Parlez-Moi d’Amour after its release and came up with some interesting conclusions.
The fragrance begins on a blend of blueberry, ginger and bergamot, followed closely in the mid development by a few very feminine flowers: Sambac jasmine, lavender oil and Turkish rose. For the final part, a sensual and warm facet is revealed in a combination of cypress, musk and Indonesian patchouli.
Parlez-Moi d’Amour comes in a bottle that looks like an envelope, a sensation conferred as well by the stamp with the floral pattern that adorns the upper right corner. The transparent glass that reveals a pale pink liquid is contrasting with the golden cap, engraved with writings. If the inspiration for this perfume’s name relies in Edith Piaf’s song Parlez-Moi d’Amour (French for “Speak to me about Love”), for the image of the perfume John Galliano was inspired by Taylor Momsen, the 18 years old American actress and lead singer of the band “The Pretty Reckless”. The result is a contemporary fragrance with a rebel attitude, dedicated to the type of girl embodied by Taylor Momsen in the video advertising.
