Arrived on the market in 2008, Fleur Défendue is a floral fruity gourmand feminine fragrance, developed by perfumer Annick Menardo. The name is the French translation for “Forbidden Flower”, suggesting a fascinating character, recommended by its sensual, fresh and green accents.
Fleur Défendue has a pleasant structure, composed mostly from floral notes, with a musky base. As described on the official website, this scent is “a new femininity in the heart of a sensual garden”. Moreover, as the designer Lolita Lempicka herself declared “Like an olfactory revelation, this new fragrance is the flower of my secret…”
The opening of Fleur Défendue comes as a blend of mimosa and strawberry leaf, followed in approximately 20 minutes by a heart that comes as a result of the combination between peony, absinthe blossom, anise blossom and violet. Actually, the absinthe blossom represents the dominant theme in Fleur Défendue. For the final part, the musk was mixed with Morello cherry in order to convey a typical trail to the structure.
The bottle that holds Fleur Défendue was inspired by the amazing shape of the initial fragrance from Lolita Lempicka and represents a poem dedicated to a garden full with desire. The employed chromatic (both for the glass and the liquid) is absinthe green, while the packaging box comes painted in a lavender shade that’s absolutely lovely. Fleur Défendue is the ideal fragrance for a young woman, who lives guided by passion and accepts challenges in her life and in the same time is the example of a gently femininity, like a flower that reaches out to the world.
