Fragrance News: Christian Lacroix Tumulte


The newest fragrance from Christian Lacroix is in touch with the feminine fashions of the new season. Composed by Françoise Caron, it is based on rosewater and rose de mai from Grasse, with the top notes of green tangerine, freesia, rosewater; heart notes of orris, rose from Grasse, heliotrope, and base notes of tonka bean and patchouli. The bottle is inspired by vintage flacons.

  • Marina: It sounds like it could actually be good…rose and tangerine…could it be the first likeable Lacroix perfume? 🙂 I am mean, I know. September 13, 2005 at 8:25am Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: L, I have not tried it. I notice that the lastest few new fragrances that caught my attention feature really nice packaging. That never hurts! September 13, 2005 at 11:05am Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Marina, rose and tangerine can be a very nice pairing, therefore I have high hopes. We will see! September 13, 2005 at 11:26am Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Mine too! I love red, especially when the bottle looks like something vintage.

  • Katie: This sounds so pretty. And I do hope this recent trend of such attention to detail on bottles continues. The juice is, of course, important, but a gorgeous flacon adds immesurably to the experience of getting ready in the morning.

    Green tangerine and rose sounds wonderful. The only thing that sounds bad is the freesia: not because I don’t like that note, I do, but most freesias seem to last all of three seconds on me 🙁 September 13, 2005 at 3:21pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Katie, I am also not thrilled about freesia, because it usually strikes me as very sharp (or rather the aromachemicals used to approximate it). I love the scent of real flowers though.

    Beautiful flacon is very important! I cannot agree more. While it is not enough to buy something I do not like, but it is an impetus to try harder. September 13, 2005 at 3:51pm Reply

  • Lisa C: I love this fregrance! I get compliments on it all the time. I’m just having a hard time finding it in the oil. January 20, 2007 at 9:19am Reply
