She’s getting ready. It’s a beautiful day. The sky is blue. She puts her naked foot on the floor and like a dancer, travels the distance of the mirrored hallway to the dressing table. It’s one of her favourite spots. She likes getting pretty there. There are only flowers from the garden, and both her hands, fresh and clean, which seem to spin around them.
Her right hand, agile and light, grabs her powder, then a bottle of perfume. Her left hand clutches eye shadow and nude lipstick. She then moves on to the closet, where she picks a light dress and fixes a rebel strap. She slides on pair of heels and fastens a belt around her waist. Just like every morning, she walks towards her balcony full of flowers. It’s on the 4th floor and overlooks the gardens of Palais Royal.
She is happy and thinks of her day ahead, smiling.

THE BOTTLE AND ITS ELEMENTS
Because the French artisans and the French industry of perfumery hold savoir-faire second to none, BDK Parfums choses to manufacture “Made in France” products created by French enterprises.
The bottle cap, developed in Paris by a master goldsmith, was shaped after the dome of the Grand Palais in Paris. This monument that holds so many of the French treasures is the symbol of a city where creation and liberty rules all.
The perfume bottle, with its angled edges, is made by a master glass blower based in Normandy. Re-burnt after being fabricated, it holds a unique transparency and brilliance, which enables it to enhance the colour of the fragrance it contains.
The label, applied by hand, was made by a printing house located in the Marais.
Finally, the box set, similar to a bookbinding, was crafted by a family run business in the region of Le Mans. The ink used natural and the paper recycled. When standing long side each other, this box set forms an encyclopaedia of wonderful perfumes.
