Eutopie N°6 Dh715 for 100ml, Galeries Lafayette
Created by French perfumer Elodie Pollet, this fragrance is a tribute to the Slavic soul. Pollet lived in Moscow for four years and wanted to produce a scent that would capture her memories and allow her to revisit Russia simply by smell. “I want to express my feelings towards Russia by showing it is a country of contrasts. There are a lot of paradoxes, but today Moscow is a glamorous city that grows fast. It’s full of opportunities,” she says, having used masculine and feminine ingredients to capture the city’s contrasting moods. “It’s based on the intense scent of leather and strong, masculine incense. Leather stands for boots, and incense reflects the Russian Orthodox churches. But there’s also one ingredient that smells very feminine – geranium. It expresses the feminine soul of Russia – young and beautiful.” Even the bottle brings to life the spirit of Russia. “Red is so symbolic for Russia!” says Pollet.
