A scent inspired by one of the greatest creative talents of the 20th Century, Diaghilev is a truly theatrical perfume which brings to life the multi-sensory experience of a performance at Paris’ Opera House. Defying the rules of convention, Diaghilev completely re-defined the meaning of artistry and became the catalyst for the Art-Deco movement. This trailblazing spirit which has been immortalised this incredibly complex creation which pushes decadence to the extreme with a grand total of 33 raw materials which work in perfect harmony to create a complex Chypré accord that is at once spicy, fruity and leathery. A perfume of unapologetic opulence, Diaghilev lingers in the memories of those who smelt it long after it has left. Unlike anything that came before it, the cult status of this scent is not without justification.
“Initially created for an exhibition on The Ballet Russes for the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, this perfume pays homage to one of the greatest forces of the twentieth century: Sergei Diaghilev. Founder of the legendary Ballet Russes, he totally re-wrote the rules of artistry and was even said to have scented the curtains of the theatre so patrons were enveloped in a burst of fragrance as they were raised at the start of the performance. A bold symphony of 32 ingredients, a floral heart of Jasmine, Tuberose, Heliotrope and Violet create a sweet and beautiful harmony which is underscored by a lively melody of fruity Blackcurrant, Peach and Citrus. Warm, earthy Patchouli and Oakmoss are joined on stage by the naughty seductiveness of Benzoin, Leather and Labdanum. An unmistakable creation, Diaghilev -much like the man himself - is too decadent to be forgotten.” - ROJA DOVE.
