” There is something we’ve talked about with Jacques Cavallier on numerous occasions, as being something we absolutely must do. And then many women have written to me or come to see me to ask, ‘ when?’. That something is here; and naturally, I have called it Divine. An invitation to give yourself up to abandonment.” – Mathilde Thomas
Like a much-loved child, firmly held by the hand, Caudalie has grown under the devout direction of its founders, Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas. The fragrances that are Mathilde’s specialist area gradually became part of the Caudalie story, first in the skincare treatments, then the Fresh Fragrances in bottled sprays. And then came the fragrant aura of Divine Oil, an original olfactory and cosmetic creation, part-unction, part-benediction. Today Mathilde Thomas brings us to the very place of that fusion, where the pulse of emotion beats.
A rose, a little vanilla, musks, something wonderfully smooth…
This fragrance, composed by the perfumer Jacques Cavallier (before a well-known brand secured his exclusivity), is the elementary evolution of Divine Oil, which blazed an unstoppable trail with its success.
The formula has the presence and sophistication that is to be expected from an Haute parfumerie fragrance. It also has the sensuality and all the allure.
The queen of roses (or rather two, the fine and fragile essence of Moroccan rose and Bulgarian rose absolute) builds on scintillating grapefruit and spicy pink peppercorn, three rare “Uganda planifolia” vanilla beans, wonderful Virginia cedar and extraordinary musks. An essence, a trail, a realm.
With Parfum Divin, the saying “nothing but the best” belongs to Caudalie, with the most exacting balance. Its statement is clear, fine, luxurious and refined.
The bottle is as stunning as the perfume, as if infused with mercury or pure gold and crowned with a beautiful stopper in ash wood (from sustainably managed forests).
