Soft leather, more like suede, combined with bright mimosa, a sprinkling of spices, resting on a soft woody base. Un Air d'Apogée is softly spoken with lots of character; modern, elegant and not easy to classify...
Inspired by Apogée from 1932, this was the pride and joy of Maison Violet. A tribute to the worldwide success of Violet's glorious past.
"The equinox of attraction, the quintessence of controlled seduction."
The original perfume was, in the image of its time, a fight between shadow and light. The bright and sensual facets of white flowers such as ylang ylang and jasmine contrasted with the dark facets of the animalic and leathery side of the composition.
Maison Violet on this modern take of Apogée: "We also added a radiant Mimosa that brought this contrast and this dimension of luminous caress. The whole thing is linked perfectly with notes of honey, hay, and tobacco. A composition that brings us back directly to the thirties and its enchanted cabarets." This modern take is far less animalic and brighter than her original sister.

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.
