AN OLD PERFUME RECIPE
In 1812, after the lost war, many French soldiers and officers haunted Russia in search of a way home. Some of them found employment as French teachers for the children of Russian noblemen. One of these was Francois de La Lenes, who remained with the family of Count Artuchowski. As a token of love, La Lenes gave the lady of the house two perfume recipes that the family would hold on to through Russian revolutions, emigration and the Great Wars. Only in 2015, more than 200 years later, the great-granddaughter and founder of the brand LEN FRAGRANCE, Jelena von Olnhausen, transformed both recipes into true fragrances. Then, four other scents were created. The six fragrances make up the first collection, “Histoire Privee” (Personal Story).
Each of the six frangrances in the >>Histoire Privee<< collection tells a personal love story and creates a key to our memory. That’s why the logo of LEN FRAGRANCE is the bow of an old key, which appears on all magnetic covers. A short love story is told on every package.
LEN FRAGRANCE IS PART OF AN EXCEPTIONALLY CREATIVE AND TIMELESS LIFESTYLE BRAND, BASED IN PARIS, FRANCE AND VADUZ, LIECHTENSTEIN
In Paris, Jelena von Olnhausen met the famous French designer and owner of Aesthete Group and The Different Company, Thierry de Baschmakoff, to design the packaging and bottles, and the French perfumer Michel Almairac (Robertet) to create a special perfume based on a personal love story based – perfume over histoire privee.
LEN Fragrance is launching SIX OLFACTORY LOVE STORIES (JEUX DANGEREUX, PRIVAROT, CRYSTAL BOMB, JUST ROULETTE, SHE&MALE, TRY TO FOLLOW ME), in the same unique style that has made Thierry de Baschmakoff an icon in the design and perfume worlds.
