Angela and “Rose de mai” at the Mondrian Café, Paris
Sunday is Store on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month!
On this week’s Sunday Store we present a product I personally love and use every day, the perfumed hand lotion “Rose de mai” (Rose of May) by Fragonard Parfumeur, which I bought a few weeks ago from the store of the Musée du Parfum Fragonard, Paris.
We all know how much Paris offers when it comes to fashion, and for me, since when I was little, this city is the cradle of perfume as well. Think about Chanel n.5, the perfume. And many others… Well, it is logical that one of our early Sunday Stores would take this into consideration.
The five emblematic flowers of the Maison Fragonard: orange blossom, jasmin, mimosa, may rose, violet
The lotion comes in 4 versions: Violette (Violette), Rose de mai (Rose of Mai), Fleur d’oranger (Orange Blossom) and Verveine (Verbena). It will definitely care for my hands over the harsh Parisian winter.
My girlfriends love it too! It feels great for the shea butter, it smells like roses and leaves my hands soft and hydrated… In other words, perfect! I’ll be trying the other scents as well.
The lotion costs 10 euros. You can buy it here or by visiting the museum.
A little about the house of Fragonard: founded in 1926 in Grasse, near the charming French Rivera, the house is named after the Grasse-born painter, Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806). This as a tribute to both the town of Grasse and to the refinement of 18th-century arts, but also to express his desire to run the business in accordance with traditions.
A little about the Musée du Parfum Fragonard: opened in 1983, the museum is located in a beautiful mansion in Napoleon III style. It offers free admission to the public and free guided tours, letting you discover a wonderful collection of perfumery items and travel through different eras, from antiquity to the early twentieth century. For more information, you can email them here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, Fragonard!
