Who Makes It?

Olivier Cresp, Dora Baghriche, and Harry Fremont created the crispy perfume. The three designers wanted to add more depth to the white chypre while blending the rich scent of roses to the captivating fragrance of datura.

“We’ve created the ultimate attraction from intense yet comfortable textures. Our goal was to embody an enthralling love story with a French twist and the sparkling charm of Parisian damsels!” read their joint statement.

They chose datura, which has an upside-down corolla to represent the vertigo of love. Its solar scent releases a sweet, powerful fragrance at nightfall, making up for the green and almond accents. The blend of roses complements each other perfectly to create a livelier and more expressive yet softer, sensual tone.

French film direction duo of Pierre Dupaquier and Clement Durou were at the heart of the perfume’s campaign shot. The majestic shot featured French actor Jeremie Laheurte and Canadian model Crista Cober who rocked the scent in different parts of the city of love.

The day and night scenes occurred near the Eiffel Tower, the Metro, on the Opera Garnier’s roof, and in a club.

Scent Notes

Mon Paris features the datura flower, red berries, and patchouli as its primary notes. Starting with a fruity scent, the fragrance becomes an intoxicating floral heart before settling down on a dark chypre base. The red berries notes enchant users before the datura flower scent softens the lovely aroma.

Patchouli blends perfectly with the white musk woody scent to create a remarkable romantic scent. The fragrance opens with an enchanting juicy and sweet mix comprising strawberry, raspberry, tangerine, orange, calone, Calabrian bergamot, and pear. These top berries are fun and flirty.

Once the initial berry fragrance settles down, the aromas move to the heart, bringing forth middle notes of jasmine sambac, datura, orange blossom, peony, and Chinese jasmine. The datura flower dominates the floral heart and matures the fragrance.

Finally, the fragrance settles on the base of white musk, Indonesian patchouli leaf, vanilla, ambroxan, moss, cedar, and patchouli. This provocative classic chypre signature base comes down with unmatched intensity. The well-crafted base rounds up a super balanced perfume.
