Is it love or Crescendo?

 

Crescendo is a floral oriental fragrance. Our Crescendo extrait comes from a more than 50-year-old set of extraits that were part of an old stock find from a perfume store. Created by Lanvin in-house perfumer Andre Fraysse, Crescendo was launched in 1958 in Europe but the name had been trademarked since 1939 as the perfume reportedly took 20 years to be perfected. It was discontinued in 1969.

From an article in the Ottawa Citizen from 1961, it was noted that Andre Fraysse had been with the firm for 35 years and that the secret formula to Lanvin perfumes was known only to him and the company president. Copies of the formulas were stored in a sealed envelope in a bank vault. Each individual perfume contained a mixture of at least 50 different ingredients and when Fraysse died, instructions for making the perfumes would be given to his successor. Fraysse began working with Lanvin in 1925 and was then an unknown. He created their first fragrance, My Sin and Crescendo was the first new fragrance to be launched since 1937. Legendary perfumer Edmond Roudnitska had once said that he considered Fraysse to be the best perfumer of them all.

Crescendo has been discontinued.

This is the original extrait version of the fragrance.

  1. It's love, it's Crescendo! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Feb 2017

    This is easily the most amazing perfume I've ever tried. This one requires your full attention - on my skin it went through many stages and left me smelling my wrists for hours. A completely beautiful experience. Treat yourself to a sample and a day to experience it; you won't regret it.
