La Chasse aux Papillons is a childhood memory, inspired by chasing butterflies and playing under summer skies. It is a carefree time, somewhat innocent. Long, sunny days and meadows full of flowers in bloom. Imagine lying under the shade of citrus trees and looking up towards the sky, wispy white clouds and butterflies float above. That moment just after springtime and at the beginning of summer when you start to notice all of the butterflies everywhere, the feeling of freedom and the endless possibilities this summer will contain. The gauze of butterfly wings and fine nets echo the delicate nature of this fragrance. The result is soft, luminous and sheer. The scent of lying in the warm summer grass, surrounded by the Jasmine, Orange Blossom and Tuberose in full bloom, the crisp and uplifting floral and citrus scents floating through the summer breeze.

HOW IT WEARS
La Chasse aux Papillons is a white floral scent through and through. We get the Jasmine, Linden Blossom and Orange Blossom, and then the Tuberose comes in a little later creating that creamy depth in the dry down on the skin. We generally get 6 – 8 hours on the skin with this perfume.
We love the white floral hit of this scent with the bright citrus tones to make us feel like we are in the most romantic and magical garden surrounded by beautiful flowers and majestic butterflies. La Chasse aux Papillons has a childlike innocence to it as we imagine the purity of chasing butterflies, however the carnal allure of Tuberose is definitely lurking there in the background. This scent is almost like the quiet, innocent one who is actually busy getting up to all kinds of mischief in the garden when no one is looking.
