The character from whom they derive their name is as legendary as the scents themselves: Jean Poivre. As though he emerged directly from the grand narratives of Hugo or Dumas, he takes the perfume world by storm, displaying a raw energy that can only arise from a potent blend akin to the French Revolution with its tumult, freedom, gunpowder's aroma, warfare, betrayal, and regicide. Trends may fluctuate, but style endures. Its crystalline attire is as iconic as Jean Poivre's perfume inventions. With its agelessly refined design, the bottle harkens back to the valuable crystal containers employed in noble French homes at the close of the 18th century.
