Nostalgic and “ippi” soul

Janis Joplin

Time has gone by and yet your mother has never lost her high ideals and this very special wake. Take her back to the heart of the 70s in a few drops, in the hippie generation completely addicted to patchouli. With its earthy and woody notes, ippi patchouli will soon become her new olfactory signature. And if you want to give her a seasonal fragrance, go for the eau de parfum ippi patchouli clair. Its essence is still as woody as ever, but it is wrapped in fresh and citrusy notes, perfect for sunny days.

Sensual from elsewhere


Whether she’s an adventurer or a lover of oriental scents, she loves powerful and warm fragrances that honor her femininity. Take her on a journey to the gates of the Orient with kilim and its bewitching notes of spices, flowers and fruits mixed with patchouli. And if she likes to adorn herself with deliberately sensual accords, the amber and citrusy fragrance of so is made for her.

Elegant and musky

Ava Gardner

Coquette and feminine, her wake should be as elegant as she is. With label rose, opt for a sweet and romantic fragrance, but also wild and spirited that would not leave her indifferent. And since she has a strong yet discreet character, you can also conquer her with musc and the original musc. These intimate and wild perfumes will leave on her skin a wild and enveloping imprint.

Fresh and marine

Florence Arthaud

Your mum definitely has a sea nose and loves scents that plunge her into an olfactory wave. Choose ïōdé and its chypre and floral accord, a light and invigorating essence that will carry her straight to the open sea. Otherwise, invite her to enjoy a festive and refreshing cocktail with alõ! Shivering and soothing, this fragrance will make her explore new horizons.

Gourmand and mischievous

Audrey Hepburn

Curious and daring

Chris, the singer of Christine and the Queens

She is not faint-hearted and does not hesitate to look into the wardrobe of her husband. So why not do the same with her perfume?
