VAN CLEEF & ARPELS
COLLECTION EXTRAORDINAIRE
ORCHIDEE VANILLE

The Orchidée Vanille spirit

This luxurious fragrance eulogises the most prolific pod in perfumery: vanilla planifolia. Before producing its fruit full of fragrant seeds, this climbing orchid forms bouquets of flowers that issue from its leaves. It only unleashes its languorous aroma once the pod reaches maturity.

The intention

After the fresh and fruity opening of mandarin and lychee, I wanted to dress this vanilla in sensual floral accords…
