The Maison Repetto
The Maison Repetto, a unique artisan house in the world of luxury.
Repetto's line of products is inspired by the world of ballet's values of pureness and elegance along with an exceptional and exclusive artisan know-how, a tradition carried on in its Dordogne based workshops for 65 years which has allowed the development of the most elaborated products in the world of ballet dance.
The story of the Maison Repetto began in 1947 with Rose Repetto, mother of Roland Petit, the Opera de Paris choreographer and ballet dancer. He asked her to create ballet shoes in her, workshop located at a stone's throw from the Opera house.
The Maison Repetto was born and the brand became the reference for ballet dancers.
In 1956, Brigitte Bardot ordered the first ballerinas from Rose. They were made in the same way as the ballet shoes, using the "cousu-retourné" technique – Stitch and return method.
The whole world fell in love with them and then began the legend of Repetto.
Repetto Eau de Parfum
The curtain is raised on the second act of the Repetto scented story with the Eau de Parfum, revealing a sensual performance for a confident woman at the height of her grace and femininity, like a Danseuse Etoile...
The Eau de Parfum is dressed in a frosted glass which reinforces the impression of olfactory intensity. Wrapped in pink satin ribbons, the neck of the bottle recalls the delicate ankles of the ballerinas as they tie on their Repetto ballet shoes. At the tip of the ribbon, an “R” pendant delicately signs the bottle.
The box was inspired by shoe boxes from the Maison Repetto. Black and accented with pink satin, it provides a striking contrast with the powder pink box of the Eau de Toilette.
This new scent once again features the Repetto ambassadress, Danseuse Etoile Dorothée Gilbert, who represented the Eau de Toilette. We discover her standing in her dressing room, radiant and ready to conquer the stage and her audience. More feminine than ever, more sensual than ever.
This floriental woody fragrance, composed by perfume designer Olivier Polge, opens with a gourmand dance in which Plum delivers a delicious twist to the powdery delicateness of Cherry Blossom. The floral heart is revealed under a sensuous light with Rose petals and the caressing femininity of Orange blossom. In the finale, the intense trail of Patchouli brings refined elegance to the precious notes of Amber Elixir.
Make your debut with this new sensual and captivating Eau de Parfum!
Repetto Eau de Toilette
In every woman there is a dancer
Grace as ultimate elegance
Swing into the fragrance universe. The first Fragrance by Repetto is the ultimate accessory to reveal her grace and her beauty.
Repetto has now created a fragrance of their very own, an elegant aura, like a ballerina performing an arabesque driven by a subtle signature providing self-confidence and lifting the body into the air like a Carlotta ballerina. Repetto called on perfumer Olivier Polge to create the formula.
“I sought to achieve a hand-sewn effect by combining a selection of luxurious and authentic raw ingredients. A musky powdered rose, real quintessence of femininity. It’s a refined formula for which I had the pleasure of using essence of rose and vanilla.”
Rose is the fragrance’s spine, rolling over the skin like a satin ribbon. A rhythmical choreography that opens with the optimistic entrechats of pear and cherry blossom accords. We also recognise the precious essence of rose fusing with orange blossom. A bewitching floral heart that arches towards the powdery base like a dancer in her partner’s arms. Then comes the sensual pas de deux between the vanilla pod and the warmth of the amber wood to create absolute equilibrium. A tender, delicate, refined perfume.
A dynamic bottle
The powdered case is the exact same colour as the famous Repetto pink, while the bottle that sits within it bears an identical ribbon to that used on the famous Carlotta ballerina. The satin ribbon is wrapped round the bottle, knotted at the neck, sealed with the brand’s iconic lower-case ‘r’ and weighted with an elegant drop pendant. As for the subtly tinted glass bottle, it seems to have been carved in a perpetual motion. Like a fully choreographed body, the bottle required months of rehearsal. A play of curves, volumes and unbridled forms gives the glass a unique suppleness. Embraced by your hand, it reveals an unparalleled sensuality and softness. Tapered, rounded but entirely irregular, it seems to have always existed, just like a principal dancer simulates apparent ease through their grace. A work of pink glass, between frost and transparency.
