Jean Desprez Bal a Versailles


Elizabeth Taylor pioneered a revolutionary perfume empire, revolutionizing the world once and for all with White Diamonds, Forever Elizabeth, Violet Eyes and Passion, the most successful celebrity perfumes to this day. Taylor herself was a passionate follower of Jean Desprez Bal à Versailles. It was this that she wore on the set of Cleopatra and she gave it to Michael Jackson, who did not part with this perfume until the end of his life.

Ralph Lauren Woman

One of the tricks for creating a feminist scent is to blend traditionally masculine notes like tobacco, rum and wood with more delicate, floral notes. This combination creates an interesting new sound. En Flipo, a renowned perfumer, states: "Unusual combinations can create very strong and sensual fragrances." This is exactly what Ralph Laurent's Woman perfume is. Its bold blend of woody notes with tuberose creates an unmistakable flair that is instantly recognizable and pretentious.

Revlon's Charlie

The change in the socio-political hierarchy of women in the 80s and 90s greatly influenced the choice of the scent. At that time, the main character on the shelves of feminists was: Revlon’s Charlie, “the elixir of strength” as it was called then. The notes of bergamot, sandalwood and musk captivated the hearts of strong women. The enveloping scent of this perfume remained in the room for a long time after the woman wearing it left the space. This declaration of importance has led women to literally hunt for the desired scent.

Clean Reserve Warm Cotton

Whoever wears this perfume: man, woman or transgender, it will not leave you indifferent. The scent feels so fresh and clean that you will want to listen to it all day long.


Vivien Leigh, who played the main feminist of all time Scarlett O'Hara, was known as a very strong and powerful woman in life. However, she preferred to smooth out the sharp edges of her character with the light floral perfume Jean Patou Joy Eau de Parfum. When Clark Gable first met his future partner, he said that she smelled like a bouquet of violets. The combination of a strong woman with a hint of weakness conquered men from the first seconds, which Vivienne skillfully used.
