Lancome Climat: The Story of Legendary Fragrance

Thursday, 01 October 2009

lancome climat The French Lancome Perfume House won the popularity with its elegant fragrances for women. Yet, most of scents have been acknowledged as the classic scent in perfumery world. Almost all vintage fragrances launched by Lancome were designed for mature and elegant women and the peak of its popularity came to 60s and 70s. The scent that found its admirers was not supposed to attract younger ladies, and still the image of the real woman was far more preferable than that of the young coquette.

The key fragrance in the history of Lancome appeared to be Lancome Climat fragrance which is fresh, green, feminine and a little bit quixotic.

Created in 1967 for Lancome House by Gerard Goupil, Climat was accepted as the symbol of that eon with its elegant and lavishness match of green notes, dazzling outburst of aldehydes and the cascade of florid notes that smoothly ends with the sensory depth that made Climat be one of the best perfume of the sixties among Guerlain Chant d'Arоmes (1962), Yves Saint Laurent Y (1964), Dior Eau Sauvage (1966) and Guerlain Chamade (1969). The source of inspiration for the flowery and aldehyde composition by Climat appeared to be the old bouquet, the legendary Worth Je Reviens of 1932), tender and almost translucent smelling flowers and naked skin. Unlike Worth Je Reviens, the affection of floral notes of which blends with the smoky notes of labdanum and sandal, Lancome Climat is still even and glittering as perfectly polished pale-green jade.

Lancome Climat is opened with the green notes that make the fragrance unique symbol of the entire epoch in the mix with the tender and fruity notes of aldehydes forming the blend of fresh and slightly naïve atmosphere of spring garden. Fading, the first notes are followed by notes of white flowers, creamy as gardenia petals and tender as first lily-of-the-valley that adds the luxury sensitivity of perfume composition. With the additive of vetiver, amber and civet, the green floral bunch gets deeper and more complicated, while the preliminary innocent and naïve image gives the way to lacy, elegant and sensitive image of a mature and confident woman. Being lasting-for-ever classic perfume, Lancome Climat became as the real icon of effeminacy. The fragrance shaped the image of the mysterious inconnu, a special woman with quite mystic charm. The unaffectionate elegance by Lancome Climat won the extraordinary glamour in the early 70s, developing the new wave of effeminacy, thus being a bright contrast against feminists who fight back for the equality of genders and reject the traditional perception of women; the Lancome Climat ideal woman realized her effeminacy and sensitivity to the highest possible extent.

Lancome Climat almost became the best followers of Chanel House traditions, the house that some time back set trends for aldehyde-floral scents on the base of the legendary Chanel №5. Nevertheless unlike other legendary fragrances, Lancome Climat existed not so long, and Lancome House ceased producing the scent in the mid 70s. Today the admirers of the preliminary scent of Climat find it difficult to acquire though there is still he way out. In 2005 while celebrating the 70-year anniversary, Lancome arrived at a decision to rehabilitate its several classic scents including Climat. La Collection Lancоme included several re-created vintage fragrances, as Magie (blend of jasmine, viola and amber), Climat, Sagamore of1985 and Sikkim of 1971 with fruity composition of galbanum, ylang-ylang and oak moss). Lancome perfumers tried their best to recreate the composition of legendary scents and design of elegant bottles made by one of the Lancome House founders in the early 60s George Delhomme. Though the fragrance composition of the re-launched scents is slightly different from the original scents, the newly created fragrances lack the depth and sensitivity that make them popular among women all over the world that is the eternal problem with all reissues. However, La Collection Lancоme is still hardly the only way to appreciate the charm and elegance of the legendary Lancome Climat fragrance.
