Known to the writing world as simply Colette – Sidonie Gabrielle Colette was an ambitious, young writer with exquisite, feminine beauty and a passion for putting ink to paper. She began writing amidst the roses and wild flowers in her family garden, growing into an accomplished, thriving author in only a few years. From there, she was described as a sensuous woman with a knack for creatively concocting some of the most brilliant literary works of her time.
For this reason, the 1873 Colette Fragrance from Histoires de Parfums is dedicated to the stunning memory of Colette – a lovely writer with the world at her feet. The fragrance combines her favorite scents, such as smooth caramel, sweet vanilla, lavender, orange blossoms, and tangy grapefruit.
