This listing is for a bottle of Arpege extrait that came from a more than 50-year-old set of extraits that were part of an old stock find from a perfume store. It is a 10ml (1/3 oz) bottle that is glass with a black glass stopper/dauber. It has a black label. The word "Publicite" is stamped on the back of the bottle which I'm assuming means that this was a tester given to stores. The bottle is approximately 3" tall.
Created by Lanvin in-house perfumer Andre Fraysse and another perfumer Paul Vacher, Arpege was launched in 1927. It was named after the musical term arpeggio in honor of Jeanne Lanvin’s only daughter Marie-Blanche, a talented pianist and was created in honor of her 30th birthday. A refined, elegant and warm scent created with over 60 natural ingredients, Arpege is a floral aldehydic fragrance that features notes of aldehydes, rose, jasmine, lily of the valley, ylang ylang, iris, vetiver, ambrein and benzoin.
