Olim (Latin for “once”) recalls the first four registers of the old Parliament of Paris, including the numerous texts and laws delivered to the King’s court between 1254 and 1318 under different reigns, particularly St. Louis (1214-1270). Olim shines light on the evolution of royal power and the decline of 13th-century French feudalism. “A spirit, a veil of elegance, and beauty…the scent is full of history. Better still, it has the power to reveal history. Cold notes, reinterpreted in a modern way leave a lasting impression in those around and purity on those who wear it.” - Lyn Harris.
In harmony with the brand’s stylistic approach, Pauline Deltour managed to create a perfume bottle at the edge of the world of candles; its aesthetic codes and materials belong to Cire Trudon’s world.
The 100ml perfume bottle resembles the design of Cire Trudon’s scented candles. Created by Pauline Deltour, the rippled-glass cap evokes the elegant silhouette of La Promeneuse. In a pine-green hue, the top counterbalances the transparent bottle, inspired by blocks of crystal.
“The bottle sits perfectly in the hand and is pleasant to the eye. I perfected its dimensions to underline the domed neck on top of which the rippled-glass cap sits. Elegantly placed in a cut-out window, the label seems to be framed”, says Pauline Deltour.
Praise to Glass
Designed by Pauline Deltour and elaborated by Brosse Glassworks,
the rippled cap is made out of glass, a material which is dear to Maison Trudon.
