Once reserved for the happy few, Montaigne was re-released in 2007 to a wider public of equally demanding women. The name Montaigne alone is already a statement of intent. It is the name of the prestigious avenue in Paris where Caron’s boudoir-boutique is located, and where numerous French and international luxury brands have there most stunning showcases. And then there’s the perfume itself. A majestic floral-oriental scent, this is the rebirth of a true couture perfume. The marketing campaign revealed a drawing of a delicately posed modern woman. The naked woman, garbed entirely in Montaigne bottles, evokes the impalpable garment that this perfume truly is. The succinct tagline states: ‘The art of wearing Caron today’. Modern, minimalist, sensual.

Montaigne is dominated by a thoroughbred bouquet of yellow jasmine and mimosa blossoms delicately embroidered with exotic balms, gentle spices and Indian sandalwood. The 2007 edition echoes the original Montaigne, created in 1986 and which, although never a Caron fountain, has always been thought a Caron classic. Anyone who enjoys Coco, or Bal a Versailles will love this.
