Created by perfumer BienaimÃ© in 1912, Quelques Fleurs was the first multifloral bouquet ever created. Until that time, floral fragrances had either been based on a single flower or blended with herbs and other essences.
What makes Quelques Fleurs incomparable is not only the flowers but the way they are mixed and matched. As in music, it's not just about the notes but how they are used to create a masterpiece.
A sensual floral perfume
The formula of Quelques Fleurs has never been published. It is a blend of soft and sensual flowers. It contains more than 250 different raw materials, and more than 15000 flowers are needed to create a single ounce of the eau de parfum. Today the fragrance is still produced in Grasse, France, where Jean FranÃ§ois Houbigant first creates his perfumes in 1775.
An absolute is the purest and most natural way to extract fragrance from raw materials such as flowers. Quelques Fleurs contains six absolutes: rose, violet, jasmine, broom flower, oak moss and beeswax.
