“Snob” is surely a tongue-in-cheek title for this perfume, because there’s too much of an uncorseted exuberance present in the almost fizzy fruit notes, gently spiced with saffron, for the name to be taken ad-literam. Icily bright at first, then warm with a satiny, almost powdered feel, the beating floral heart comes hot on the heels off the sparkling apple and mandarin accords and they all rest happily on a plush woody base.
Yes, this is luxurious exuberance, no doubt. It’s exuberance dressed in a perfectly tailored tweed suit, red sole stilettos, strands of softly gleaming pearls and one of those handbags that are more expensive than a regular car. Not exactly the right premises for unbridled friendly affection, but her smile is dazzlingly irresistible and her heart is warm. You know she’s the type that won’t shy away from kicking off the stiletos and loosening up that perfect chignon if there’s fun to be had. So, you’ve just got yourself an obscenely rich friend: after all, aren’t they the best kind to have?
‘Les Parfums Le Galion appartiennent à la même famille de fragrances passionnées, à la fois ardentes et subtiles, qui créent un sillage d’admiration derrière celles et ceux qui savent les porter.’
L’Officiel de la Mode, 1956
The name of this beautiful brand, inspired by majestic seafaring vessels with their vast square sterns, evoked thoughts of freedom and escape. Some of the beautiful fragrances associated with the brand have stayed in our memories: Sortilège, Brumes, Snob … But this once glorious perfume house, Le Galion, has faded from our memory and consigned to the past.
Now, more than 30 years after closing its doors, like the phoenix, Le Galion Perfume House is reborn from the ashes. Back are the original, exceptional, fiery and subtle fragrances – rare luxury and refined creations.
