The original vintage Tanagra from 1920 was an ode to women, but like all contemporary Violet perfumes, Tanagra also has a modern twist and is absolutely unisex. Having said that, Tanagra supports women - 20% of the profit from this perfume goes to the "Solidarity Femmes Association".
Tanagra is fresh and woody at the same time and despite the pear and mandarin, absolutely not fruity, but a 'clear' scent thanks to the hint of cheery freesia combined with iris.
"Released in the 1920s, Tanagra strikes with its unique bottle with a stopper representing, in painted glass, a female silhouette of ancient Greece. Designed by Lucien Gaillard, this superb container perfectly represented the aesthetic genius of the Brand."

The birth of a friendship, the origin of a project
The story of the current Maison Violet brand begins at the prestigious perfume school Ecole Supérieure du Parfum in Paris. Having just finished their perfumery training, three friends decided to start a perfume brand together. The discovery of vintage perfume bottles from the 190-year-old perfume brand Maison Violet started this adventure for Anthony Toulemonde, Paul Richardot, and Victorien Sirot. In addition to their perfume training, they all have their own expertise and with this strong team, they brought Maison Violet back to life.
Together with top perfumer Natalie Lorson, they reformulated five scents, inspired by the brand's classics. This resulted in a line of timeless perfumes with a classical scheme while remaining modern.
In this way, they intertwine the rich heritage of this brand from 1827 with the present.
Maison Violet was founded in 1827 by Mr. Violet. The brand won international fame, had several patents and received multiple awards at the world exhibitions in Paris until it was sunk into a long sleep in 1953.
