A light, fruity chypre, feminine, happy and interesting.
The name comes from by the classic French dessert Pears Belle-Hélène, invented in the late 19th century by Auguste Escoffier, the first celebrity chef and named after Offenbach's 1864 operetta, a risqué spoof on the abduction of Helen of Troy.
Despite it's name and the referral to a French dessert, La Belle Helene is not a gourmand fragrance, rose and osmanthus give it a light, floral character, against a backrop of amber, woods and oakmoss. A modern classic, very wearable.
La Belle Helene was made by Master Perfumer Bertrand Duchafour.

The independent House of Parfums MDCI (MDCI stands for Marchal Dessins et Créations Indépendantes) founded in 2003, is reviving the French tradition of the Art of perfume and creates rare and original perfumes, presented in unique and aesthetic bottles in collaboration with master perfumers chosen for their talent. Classic and innovative.
Classic, as the Italian Renaissance, the seventeenth century France and the great voyages of discovery were the points of reference guiding the brand creator's work. Innovative, for offering something so contrary to the mass-produced minimalism prevailing today- small sculptures inspired by the Renaissance or the Ancient World, posed elegantly on a very refined cylindrical plinth that doubles as a bottle.
