Sous le Manteau perfumes are based on authentic aphrodisiac recipes found in 19th century pharmaceutical books.
Since the ancient times, the recipes of love potions were secretly preserved. Ancient formulas and centuries-old legends, they were meant to create desire and be irresistible elixirs. In the 19th century, these potions were recorded in pharmaceutical books. Collected by Sous le Manteau creators Olivia Bransbourg and Frédéric Blanchard these recipes were modernised by the great perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer, who has created many successful perfumes.
Essence du Sérail
Essence du Sérail (essence of the harem, haaremi essents) is a floral oriental ambery scent.
Perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer flavoured this love potion with bergamot oil, ylang ylang oil, jasmine, lily of the valley, orange blossom, rose, plum, heliotrope, peach, sandalwood, ambrette, and vanilla.
At times innocent, then again utterly erotic.
Perfume comes in 50 ml bottle
