From Beyonce and Jay-Z featuring the Louvre in their 'Apeshit' video to a one night stay at the Louvre by Airbnb, the world's most-visited museum has definitely inspired many from all over the world.
The Paris museum has invited eight prolific perfumers from L'Officine Universelle Buly to interpret eight of the Louvre museum’s greatest works. Among the artworks chosen were Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres’s 1808 painting The Bather matched with scents like lavender, orange blossom, and neroli oil and Saint Joseph Charpentier, which shows St. Joseph drilling a piece of wood with a young Jesus, with selected essences of verbena and cedar.
Other fragrances include The Victory of Samothrace by Aliénor Massenet' with notes of myrrh, bergamot and essence of jasmine, rose, magnolia and tuberose set and The Great Odalisque d'Ingres by Domitille Michalon-Bertier with pink pepper and musk. Though there is no fragrance for the famous 'Mona Lisa' yet, these 8 fragrances definitely sound promising and are available gift shop while stocks last.
L'Officine Universelle Buly will feature the exclusive fragrance at the Louvre from July 3, 2019 to January 6, 2020, Allée du Grand Louvre.
