Created in Honour of the Parisian seamstress in the time of Chanel and the Belle Epoque. Familiar figures in the streets of 19th century Paris, grisettes were the youthful, fresh‑faced, independent women who worked in the capital’s sewing workshops. They were full of joie de vivre and wore grey calico frocks that gave them their nickname.
On sunny days, when the workshop bell rang, they would rush off in pursuit of adventure in the bars of Montmartre and the guinguettes on the Marne, where they would dance to the strains of the accordion.
These fun-loving creatures paired up with the bohemian students in the Latin Quarter, and provided the inspiration for the artists at Montmartre, becoming the heroines of paintings by Renoir and Manet.
The grisette slips through the crowded streets on nimble feet with her head held high, a slim, fleeting figure that is the very image of Bohemian Paris. With her rosy cheeks and innocent gaze, she is hurrying to meet her lover, but Grisette is already thinking of another, dreaming wistfully of a new romance. Their first kiss beneath that awning sealed a promise truer than any other vow.
An armful of freshly cut roses. For the first time for decades, Lubin is using an alcolate obtained by macerating rose concrete. This preserves the most volatile notes that mingle with hints of grapefruit to give a green sensation of fresh roses. Grisette then wraps one up in powdery, woody, and spicy notes before leaving a trail of amber and vanilla. A flirtatious, feminine and bubbly fragrance much like the iconic grisette’s were!
Bulgarian Rose and Moroccan Rose
Madagascan vanilla absolute
Crisp and floral from first spritz, this soft scent opens with the sweet refreshing quality of Grapefruit combined perfectly with the soft prettiness of Rose. Grisette creates a delicate floral tone on the skin from the outset and holds beautifully for 7-8 hours. With the clean Musk and Cedar grounding this bubbly fragrance, Grisette is never overpowering but always a delight in the not too distant background.
Grisette is an effervescent, vibrant yet also delicate fragrance that brings an immediate smile when it is sprayed. It is perfectly matched in the wine world to a bottle of the finest bottle of rosé – in both appearance and fragrance! The gentle feminine energy Grisette shows when first sprayed is something we at Lore just love. Grisette is a soft scent but has power in its ability to make you feel womanly and inspired. Grapefruit is such an uplifting scent, and it works perfectly in this well-rounded floral stunner of a perfume.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Born in 1774, Pierre-Francois Lubin lived in a period thought to be the most eventful in France’s history. He began his career as a perfume apprentice at the age of 10 to the famous Jean-Louis Fargeon in 1784. During this time under Fargeon’s tutelage, Lubin came to be entrusted with the beauty recipes of the French Royal Court. Fargeon came from a dynasty of expert perfumers and was Marie Antoinette’s official fragrance supplier. Renowned as the 'holder of the secrets of beauty of the old court of France' and thanks to his illustrious patronage, Lubin became the favourite perfumer of many European Courts. In 1821, he became the appointed official supplier of the King of England George IV. Then, in 1823, he became perfumer to the great Tsar of Russia Alexander I.
