Penhaligon’s: sophisticated (British) perfumes in Paris.

Penhaligon’s: sophisticated (British) perfumes in Paris.

Penhaligon’s is one of the few true perfume houses in the world: designing and making its own scents, going to great lengths to achieve precise effects. Only fine and rare ingredients are used, such as hand-squeezed oil of bergamot and jasmine oil at twice the price of gold.”
Once upon a time back in the 19th century there was a Cornish barber—William Henry Penhaligon—who moved to London and became Court Barber and Perfumer to Queen Victoria. One hundred and thirty-seven years later, with 22 fragrances to its list, Penhaligon’s house has grown and established itself all over the world. Penhaligon’s perfumes are some of the most sophisticated and original scents on the market. They have been worn by Winston Churchill, Rudyard Kipling, Vivienne Westwood, Kate Moss…

While looking in vain for an old Caron perfume that has been discontinued for many years now, I stumbled upon Penhaligon’s shop on rue Saint-Honoré in Paris. I tried Malabah and was sold. I’ve been stopped on the street a few times and asked about my perfume. Yes, it’s that nice!

Angelin Preljocaj’s Le Parc at the Opéra de Paris

Angelin Preljocaj’s Le Parc at the Opéra de Paris

In the game of love, getting there is three-quarters of the fun. Or so the French would have us believe, in a literary tradition that dates back to the 17th century, when Louis XIV, no prude himself, founded the Paris Opera Ballet. This kind of formalized courtship is the updated subject of “Le Parc,” a visually stunning work by Angelin Preljocaj, a genuine experimental choreographer.” Anna Kisselgoff.

Le Parc was created in 1994 for the Ballet de l’Opéra National de Paris.
Choreography: Angelin Preljocaj
Music: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (extracts from pieces for strings and piano concertos)
Sets: Thierry Leproust
Costumes: Hervé Pierre
Lighting: Jacques Chatelet
